Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Swiss players who are currently playing abroad.


Thabo Sefolosha
Thabo Sefolosha
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Thabo Sefolosha (199-84, agency: ACMT, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Oklahoma City Thunder (35-12) to beat the Los Angeles Lakers (21-26). Sefolosha recorded 7 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 34 minutes on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder lost 96-105 on the road to the Lakers. Sefolosha has relatively good stats this year: 7.1ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.7apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 55.0%, 3FGP: 40.4% and FT: 82.9% in the 46 games he played so far. He played for the Swiss senior national team two years ago.

   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Greg Brunner (201-83, college: Iowa, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian SerieA. Brunner was not able to help Trenkwalder RE (8-9) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance Trenkwalder RE was defeated 75-69 at home by the higher-ranked Umana Venezia (#7). Brunner was the second best scorer with 15 points. He also added 8 rebounds. Brunner belongs to league's best rebounders and is ranked #3. He has very reliable stats this season: 11.6ppg, 7.9rpg, 1.6apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 54.1%, 3FGP: 25.0% and FT: 67.3%. Brunner is a naturalized American. Despite he played previously for the USA university national team, Brunner is currently a member of the Swiss senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Switzerland.

Clint N'Dumba-Capela
Clint N'Dumba-Capela
   #3. The Swiss player who performed third best last week abroad was former U18 international forward Clint N'Dumba-Capela (204-94, currently plays in France).

He played for the Swiss U18 national team two years ago.

   #4. Guard Christophe Varidel (188-89, currently plays college basketball in the States) managed to help Florida Gulf Coast University to win against the Jacksonville University (6-4) 81-78 in the NCAA on Saturday night.

   #1. Michael Kessens (206-F-91, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA could not help the Longwood (0-9) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite Kessens' very good performance the Longwood was crushed 88-60 on the road by the High Point University. He scored 22 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Kessens' overall stats this season are: 3.2ppg and 3.1rpg.

   #2. Alex Vaenerberg (183-G-92, currently plays in Finland) contributed to a Salon Vilpas' victory against the league outsider Namika Lahti (6-21) 87-75 in the Finnish Korisliiga last Saturday.
