We bring you last week's top performances from Bulgarians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Earl Rowland
Earl Rowland
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in VTB United League), who plays in Latvia. He could not help VEF Riga (11-7) in their last game. Despite Rowland's very good performance the fourth-placed VEF Riga was crushed 104-82 on the road by the leading Khimky in the group B of VTB United League. He was the top scorer with 20 points. Rowland also added 5 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 25 minutes on the court. It's Rowland's first season with the team. Rowland belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #2) and also on the list of best passers (fifth place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Rowland averages: 16.3ppg, 5.5rpg, 5.4apg, 1.9spg, 2FGP: 57.3%(125-218), 3FGP: 27.7% and FT: 81.8% in the 23 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Rowland played for the Bulgarian senior national team two years ago. Strangely he has never played in Bulgaria.

Dejan Ivanov
Dejan Ivanov
   #2. Second place goes to former international power forward Dejan Ivanov (205-86, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Italy). Ivanov contributed to a Cimberio Varese's victory against the eighth-ranked Umana Venezia (16-14) 84-75 in the Italian SerieA last Saturday. He scored 10 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 18 minutes. Cimberio Varese (23-7) is placed first in the SerieA. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This year Ivanov's overall stats are: 4.8ppg, 7.0rpg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 31.6% and FT: 53.8% in the four games. He played for the Bulgarian national team in 2011.

Earl Calloway
Earl Calloway
   #3. The Bulgarian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international guard Earl Calloway (191-83, college: Indiana, currently plays in Spain). Calloway was not able to help Unicaja Malaga (18-16) in their game against Regal FC Barcelona (23-11) in the Spanish ACB. He recorded 5 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Unicaja Malaga was defeated 57-50 in Barcelona by the higher-ranked Regal FC (#3). They ended the series of four consecutive victories. The Regular Season already ended. Calloway's total stats this season are: 6.8ppg, 3.3rpg, 2.1apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 44.0%, 3FGP: 29.1% and FT: 84.8%. He is a naturalized American. Calloway played for the Bulgarian national team three years ago. Apparently he has never played in Bulgaria.

Filip Videnov
Filip Videnov
   #4. An experienced small forward Filip Videnov (196-80, agency: Alti Sport, college: W.Kentucky, currently plays in Turkey), who plays in the Turkish TBL was not able to secure a victory for Olin Edirne (8-22) in their last game. Despite Videnov's very good performance Olin Edirne was crushed 81-60 at home by the much higher-ranked (#5) Karsiyaka. He was the top scorer with 17 points. Videnov also added 6 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 31 minutes. The Regular Season already ended. Videnov has very impressive stats this year: 15.7ppg, 3.7rpg and 3.3apg in the 15 games. He is also Bulgarian national team player.

Ivan Lilov
Ivan Lilov
   #5. International shooting guard Ivan Lilov (196-88, currently plays in Romania) helped Gaz Metan win their game against the 14th-ranked Oradea (0-27) 79-72 in the Romanian Liga Nationala on Monday night. He scored 10 points in 21 minutes. CS Gaz Metan Medias (20-10) is placed fifth in the Liga Nationala. This year Lilov's total stats are: 9.8ppg, 2.9rpg, 2.2apg and 1.2spg in the 21 games. He plays currently for the Bulgarian national team.

Roderick Blakney
Roderick Blakney
   #6. Guard Roderick Blakney (184-76, college: S.Carolina St., currently plays in Spain) couldn't help one of league's weakest teams Cajasol (12-22) in their game against Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (12-22) in the Spanish ACB. Blakney cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 3 points. Cajasol was defeated 76-68 on their home court in Sevilla by the higher-ranked Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (#14). The Regular Season already ended. Blakney has averaged so far 7.1ppg, 1.4rpg and 2.3apg. He is a naturalized American. Blakney is a former international player as he played for the Bulgarian senior team six years ago. Interesting that he has never played in Bulgaria.

Georgi Sirakov
Georgi Sirakov
   #7. Former U20 international guard Georgi Sirakov (186-92, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian Nazionale A (third division) couldn't help Mazzeo San Severo (11-23) in their last game. Despite Sirakov's good performance Mazzeo San Severo lost 61-75 in Ferrara to the higher-ranked (#12) Naturhouse. He was the second best scorer with 10 points in 20 minutes. It was Mazzeo San Severo's fourth consecutive loss in a row. This year Sirakov averages only 8.1ppg in the 35 games. He used to play for the Bulgarian U20 national team two years ago.

Aleksandar Georgiev
Aleksandar Georgiev
   #8. Forward Aleksandar Georgiev (203-90, also represented by Interperformances, currently plays in Spain) couldn't help Assignia Manresa (6-28) in their game against Valencia Basket (22-12) in the Spanish ACB. Georgiev cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 2 points. The bottom-ranked Assignia Manresa was crushed 90-59 in Valencia by the much higher-ranked Basket (#4). It was Assignia Manresa's fifth consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Georgiev has averaged so far 4.1ppg and 2.1rpg. He plays currently for the Bulgarian national team.


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

   #1. Pero Antic (210-F-82, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Greece) contributed to Olympiacos' victory against the 12th-ranked Ilysiakos (7-19) 81-70 in a derby game in the Greek A1 last Thursday. Antic scored 8 points. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (25-1) is placed first in the A1. It was his team's 12th consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Antic's overall stats this season are: 6.3ppg and 3.1rpg. He has a dual citizenship: FYR Macedonian and Bulgarian.

   #2. Kee Kee Clark (180-PG-84, college: St.Peter's, currently plays in Italy) led Umana Venezia to a surprising victory over the league leader Cimberio Varese (23-7) 84-72 in the Italian SerieA on Thursday night. Clark was MVP of the game. He recorded 18 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists in 35 minutes. Umana Reyer Venezia (16-14) is placed eighth in the SerieA. Clark has relatively good stats this year: 14.2ppg, 2.4rpg, 2.6apg and 1.1spg in the 30 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Clark has never played in Bulgaria.

   #3. Ilian Evtimov (201-F-83, agency: Fusion Sports, college: N.Carolina St., currently plays in France) was the major contributor in Chalon/Saor's victory against the closely-ranked Chorale de Roanne (17-13) 78-68 in the French ProA in Tuesday night's game. He recorded 14 points and added 6 assists. ES Chalon-Sur-Saone (18-12) is placed fourth in the ProA. Evtimov's overall stats this season are: 9.3ppg, 3.2rpg, 2.0apg and 1.3spg. He is another player who holds two passports: Bulgarian and French.

   #4. Dimitar Karadzovski (190-G-84, agency: Global Sports Plaza, currently plays in FYR Macedonia), who plays in the FYR Macedonian Prva Liga could not help Kozuv (7-3) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite Karadzovski's very good performance Kozuv (#2) was defeated 95-87 on the road by the lower-ranked Fersped-Rabotnicki (#3) in the Places 1-6 group. He was the top scorer with 16 points. Karadzovski also added 4 passes (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line). Karadzovski is currently second on the league's list of best passers. He has very reliable stats this season: 12.5ppg, 2.5rpg and 3.8apg. Karadzovski has both Bulgarian and FYR Macedonian nationalities.
