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 Latvia). He led VEF Riga to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Jelgava (13-17) crushing them 119-83 in the Latvian LBL in Saturday night's game. Rowland had a triple-double by scoring 11 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and passing 10 assists in 31 minutes on the court. VEF Riga (14-1) is placed fourth in the LBL. It was his team's ninth consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Rowland's first season with the team. He has relatively good stats this year: 12.5ppg, 4.4rpg, 6.8apg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 47.1% and FT: 76.5% in the 11 games he played so far. Rowland is a naturalized American. He played for the Bulgarian senior national team two years ago. Strangely Rowland has never played in Bulgaria.

Earl Calloway
Earl Calloway
   #2. Second place goes to former international guard Earl Calloway (191-83, college: Indiana, currently plays in Spain). He contributed to an Unicaja Malaga's surprising victory against the second-ranked Caja Laboral (20-7) crushing them 93-72 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday.
