Here is the weekly review of the top performing Swiss players, who play currently abroad.


Greg Brunner
Greg Brunner
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Greg Brunner (201-83, college: Iowa, currently plays in Italy). Brunner was the major contributor in a Trenkwalder RE's victory against the 14th-ranked Sutor Montegranaro (7-15) 100-83 in the Italian SerieA last Sunday. He recorded 15 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and made 2 blocks. Trenkwalder Reggio Emilia (13-9) is placed seventh in the SerieA. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. It's Brunner's first season with the team. Brunner is ranked fifth on the list of the best rebounders in the league. He has very reliable stats this season: 12.2ppg, 7.7rpg, 1.8apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 57.7%(97-168) and FT: 61.3%. 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.

Thabo Sefolosha
Thabo Sefolosha
   #2. Second place goes to former international guard Thabo Sefolosha (199-84, agency: ACMT, currently plays in NBA). Sefolosha contributed to an Oklahoma City Thunder's victory against the Boston Celtics (36-29) 91-79 in the NBA on Sunday night. He scored 8 points and had 3 steals in 24 minutes. The Oklahoma City Thunder has a solid 49-17 record this season. Sefolosha has relatively good stats this year: 7.7ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.6apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 56.8%(100-176), 3FGP: 42.1% and FT: 83.0% in the 65 games he played so far. He played for the Swiss national team in 2011.

Christophe Varidel
Christophe Varidel
   #3. The Swiss player who performed third best last week abroad was former international guard Christophe Varidel (188-89, currently plays college basketball in the States). Varidel led Florida Gulf Coast to a victory against the Mercer University (13-5) 88-75 in the NCAA in Saturday night's game. He scored 12 points (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). The Florida Gulf Coast University has a solid 13-5 conference record this season. The Regular Season already ended in the NCAA. This year Varidel averages: 7.7ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.6apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 56.8%(100-176), 3FGP: 42.1% and FT: 83.0%. He played for the Swiss national team three years ago.

David Ramseier
David Ramseier
   #4. Power forward David Ramseier (203-87, currently plays in France) managed to help Boulazac Basket Dordogne in a victory against the fifth-ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (13-10) 68-59 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. Ramseier scored only 1 points and added 3 assists in 15 minutes. Boulazac Basket Dordogne (7-16) is placed second from the bottom (#15) in the ProA. This year Ramseier's overall stats are: 6.4ppg and 4.0rpg in the 12 games. He has a dual citizenship: Swiss and French. Ramseier is also Swiss national team player.


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

   #1. Rolandas Alijevas (192-G-85, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov, currently plays in Lithuania) led Siauliai to a 3-point victory over the league leader Rudupis (13-3) 87-84 in the Lithuanian LKL in Tuesday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Alijevas scored 22 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 36 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. BC Siauliai (9-7) is placed fourth in the LKL. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Alijevas has relatively good stats this year: 11.7ppg, 3.7rpg, 3.7apg and 1.8spg in the six games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Swiss and Lithuanian. Despite Alijevas' Swiss passport, he previously played for the Lithuanian university national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Swiss team.

   #2. Clint Ndumba-Capella (205-C-94, currently plays in France) managed to help ES Chalon-Sur-Saone in a 3-point victoryagainst the 11th-ranked Limoges CSP Elite (4-15) 74-71 in the French ProA last Tuesday. Ndumba-Capella scored only 2 points in 4 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Chalon/Saor this season. His team is placed third in the ProA.

   #3. Alex Vaenerberg (183-G-92, currently plays in Finland), who plays in the Finnish Korisliiga could not help Salon Vilpas (11-26) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Vaenerberg's good performance Salon Vilpas was badly defeated 89-73 at home by the second-ranked Loimaan Korikonkarit. He was the second best scorer with 13 points. Vaenerberg's overall stats this season are: 7.4ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.8apg. He is another player who holds two passports: Finnish and Swiss.
