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


Jonas Jerebko
Jonas Jerebko
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Jonas Jerebko (206-87, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Detroit Pistons (23-45) in their last game. Despite Jerebko's good performance the Detroit Pistons were crushed 129-97 on the road by the Los Angeles Clippers. He was the second best scorer with 14 points. Jerebko also added 8 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 28 minutes on the court. It was Pistons' eighth consecutive loss in a row. It's Jerebko's fourth season with the team. This year he averages: 6.5ppg, 3.5rpg, 2FGP: 45.5%, 3FGP: 30.4% and FT: 73.1% in the 35 games he played so far. Jerebko is a naturalized American. He is currently a member of the Swedish senior national team. Strangely Jerebko has never played in Sweden.

Andreas Schreiber
Andreas Schreiber
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Andreas Schreiber (206-87, agency: Two Points, college: Pennsylvania, currently plays in United Kingdom). He led Plymouth Raiders to a victory over the closely-ranked Newcastle Eagles 76-71 in the British BBL on Friday night. Schreiber was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 26 points and getting 14 rebounds. Schreiber also added 2 blocks (made all of his six free throws) in 35 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (17-8) is placed third in the BBL. Schreiber has relatively good stats this year: 12.6ppg, 6.3rpg, 2.3bpg, 2FGP: 53.2% and FT: 77.3% in the eight games. He is a naturalized American. Schreiber is in the roster of the Swedish senior national team.

Thomas Massamba
Thomas Massamba
   #3. The Swedish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Thomas Massamba (185-85, currently plays in Bulgaria). He contributed to an easy victory against one of league's weakest teams Spartak Pleven (4-15) crushing them 93-70 in the Bulgarian NBL in Saturday night's game. Massamba recorded 12 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. Lukoil Academik Sofia (17-2) is placed first in the NBL. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. Massamba's overall stats this season are: 6.4ppg, 2.7rpg, 4.1apg, 1.2spg, 3FGP: 37.8% and FT: 78.3%. He is also a member of the Swedish senior national team.

Jeffery Taylor
Jeffery Taylor
   #4. Forward Jeffery Taylor (200-89, college: Vanderbilt, currently plays in NBA) was not able to help the Charlotte Bobcats (14-52) in their game against the Toronto Raptors (26-40) in the NBA. Taylor scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 25 minutes. The Charlotte Bobcats lost 78-92 in Toronto to the Raptors. This year Taylor's overall stats are: 6.2ppg and 1.9rpg in the 65 games. He is a naturalized American. Taylor used to play for the Swedish U20 national team back in 2008. Apparently he has never played in Sweden.

Chris Czerapowicz
Chris Czerapowicz
   #5. Former U20 international guard Chris Czerapowicz (201-91, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to a 3-point Davidson's victory against the Appalachian State University (13-7) 65-62 in the NCAA last Sunday. Czerapowicz scored 10 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. The Davidson College has quite an impressive 17-1 conference record this season. It was his team's 16th consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended in the NCAA. Czerapowicz's total stats this season are: 5.8ppg and 3.0rpg. He used to play for the Swedish U20 national team two years ago.

Jonathan Person
Jonathan Person
   #6. Point guard Jonathan Person (192-93, currently plays in Germany) contributed to a Oettinger Rockets Gotha's surprising victory against the fourth-ranked BG Karlsruhe (14-6) 91-85 in the German ProA (second division) on Friday night. Person scored 13 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 22 minutes. BiG Oettinger Rockets Gotha (10-16) is placed 12th in the ProA. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Person's total stats are: 6.1ppg, 1.6rpg and 1.4apg in the 10 games. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Swedish National Team roster.

Viktor Gaddefors
Viktor Gaddefors

He recorded 5 points in 25 minutes. Oknoplast BO was edged 72-70 at home by the higher-ranked (#10) Juvecaserta. It was Oknoplast BO's third consecutive loss in a row. It's Gaddefors' first season with the team. Gaddefors has averaged so far 4.7ppg and 2.6rpg in the 21 games. He is also Swedish national team player.

Kenny Grant
Kenny Grant
   #8. Guard Kenny Grant (188-82, college: Davidson, currently plays in France) managed to help Sluc Nancy Basket Pro in a victory against the tenth-ranked Entente Orleans 45 (11-12) 82-75 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. Grant scored only 2 points in 5 minutes on the court. Sluc Nancy Basket Pro (8-15) is placed 14th in the ProA. They ended the series of seven consecutive loses.

He scored 12 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Caja Laboral Vitoria (6-5) is placed fifth in group F. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Top 16. So now every game will be critical. Lampe is currently fifth on the list of best rebounders. He has very reliable stats this season: 13.1ppg and 6.0rpg. Lampe has a dual citizenship: Polish and Swedish.

   #2. Demetrius Brown (201-F-83, college: San Jose St., currently plays in Poland), who plays in the Polish TBL could not help Kotwica (0-1) in their last game on Friday. Despite Brown's very good performance the fourth-placed Kotwica was defeated 84-69 on the road by the higher-ranked AZS Koszalin (#3) in the Places 7-12 group. He was the top scorer with 20 points. This season Brown has relatively solid stats: 10.7ppg, 5.4rpg and 1.3apg. He is a naturalized American. Brown used to play for Ockelbo BBK in Swedish league.

   #3. Experienced Aleksandar Damjanovic (206-C/F-73, currently plays in Cyprus) was the major contributor in Keravnos' victory against the closely-ranked Apoel (12-9) 76-69 in the Cypriot Division A in Tuesday night's game. He scored 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 21 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Keravnos Strovolou (18-3) is placed first in the Division A. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. It's Damjanovic's first season with the team. This year Damjanovic's total stats are: 5.8ppg and 3.0rpg in the 22 games he played so far.

Westerlund was the best player in that game. He recorded 31 points (!!!) and grabbed 4 rebounds (made all of his seven free throws). Asker Aliens BCis placed second in Challenge group. Westerlund belongs to league's top scorers and is ranked #3. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Westerlund averages: 21.3ppg and 4.8rpg.

   #5. Hussein Tawbeh (198-F-82, currently plays in Lebanon) was not able to help Hoops Club (5-16) in their game against Sagesse (18-2) in the Lebanese Division A. Tawbeh scored 6 points. Hoops Club was defeated 108-93 in a derby game by the leading Sagesse. It was Hoops Club's fourth consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Second Stage.
