The list of other players, who all have Ukrainian passport but never been selected to any of Ukrainian national teams:

   #2. Igor Krivtsov (201-F-86, currently plays in Georgia) could not help Batumi (6-11) in their last game. Despite Krivtsov's very good performance Batumi was badly defeated 85-68 on the road by the higher-ranked (#4) Cactus Tbilisi. He was the top scorer with 24 points. Krivtsov also added 6 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 34 minutes. It was Batumi's sixth consecutive loss in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Krivtsov averaged so far 10.5ppg, 6.1rpg, 1.3apg and 1.1bpg in 15 games he played so far.

   #3. Bogdan Bliznyuk (198-F-95, currently plays college basketball in the States) led E.Washington to a victory against the University of Idaho (8-5) 77-67 in the NCAA in Friday night's game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 25 points and getting 13 rebounds. Bliznyuk also added 4 assists. The Eastern Washington University has a solid 9-4 conference record this season. There are only four games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Bliznyuk has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 19.4ppg, 6.0rpg, 4.0apg and 1.2spg.

   #4. Volodymyr Iegorov (201-F, currently plays in Canada) was not able to help the Thompson Rivers University (8-12) in their last game. Despite Iegorov's very good performance the Thompson Rivers University (#3) lost 74-79 in Regina, SK to the Cougars. He had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 12 rebounds in 39 minutes. It was Thompson Rivers University's fourth consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Iegorov has very impressive stats this year: 18.3ppg, 9.1rpg, 3.5apg, 1.3bpg and 1.1spg in 20 games.

   #5. Artem Shelukha (198-F-87, currently plays in Germany) was not able to secure a victory for AstroStars (11-9) in their game against Artland Dragons (14-6) in the German ProB (third division). He recorded 7 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 26 minutes. The fifth-placed AstroStars (11-9) lost 68-77 in Quakenbrueck to the second-ranked Artland Dragons in the North group. It was AstroStars' third consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Shelukha has averaged so far 3.7ppg and 1.8rpg in 13 games. He has a dual citizenship: Ukrainian and German.

   #6. Oleksander Kuschev (201-C-90, currently plays in Italy) contributed to Venafro's victory against the 12th-ranked Isernia 74-70 in the Italian Serie B (third division) last Sunday. Kuschev scored 6 points and added 3 passes in 29 minutes. Kuschev has averaged so far 9.9ppg and 7.5rpg in 17 games. He is another player who holds two passports: Ukrainian and Italian. Despite Kuschev's Ukrainian nationality, he previously played for the Italian U18 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Ukrainian team.

   #7. Aleksander Szczerbatiuk (182-PG-96, currently plays in Poland) couldn't help OKK Sokol Ostrow Mazowiecka (9-14) in their last game on Saturday.
