Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Dominicans who are currently playing abroad.


Sammy Mejia
Sammy Mejia
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Sammy Mejia (198-83, college: De Paul, currently plays in Turkey), who plays in the Turkish TBL. Mejia could not help Banvit BK (7-2) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Banvit BK was badly defeated 89-69 on the road by the leading Fenerbahce Ulker. Mejia was the top scorer with 18 points in 28 minutes on the court. It was Banvit BK's first loss after seven consecutive victories. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Mejia has relatively good stats this year: 12.4ppg, 4.9rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 60.3%(35-58), 3FGP: 46.7%(7-15) and FT: 75.0% in the nine games he played so far. He played for the Dominican Republic senior national team seven years ago.

Trevor Ariza
Trevor Ariza
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Trevor Ariza (203-85, agency: David Lee services, college: UCLA, currently plays in NBA). He managed to help Washington Wizards to win against the Miami Heat (14-5) 105-101 in the NBA last Tuesday. Ariza scored only 4 points, made 5 passes and 3 steals. The Washington Wizards have not so impressive 3-15 record this season. This year Ariza has relatively solid stats: 8.1ppg, 4.9rpg, 2.1apg, 1.9spg, 2FGP: 38.9%, 3FGP: 25.6% and FT: 84.0%. He has a dual citizenship: Dominican Republic and American. Ariza played for the Dominican Republic national team in 2005. Strangely he has never played in Dominican Republic.

Eulis Baez
Eulis Baez
   #3. The Dominican Republic player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Eulis Baez (198-82, college: W.Illinois, currently plays in Spain). Baez contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider Lagun Aro GBC (1-10) crushing them 94-72 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. He scored 5 points.

   #4. An experienced power forward Josh Asselin (210-78, college: Michigan, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB was not able to help Assignia Manresa (1-10) in their last game. Despite his good performance Assignia Manresa lost 75-82 in Zaragoza to the much higher-ranked (#6) CAI Zaragoza. Asselin scored 12 points and added 4 assists in 21 minutes. Asselin has reliable stats this year: 10.7ppg and 3.1rpg in the 11 games. He is another player who holds two passports: Dominican Republic and American.

   #5. Former international swingman Jeff Greer (196-79, college: Rutgers, currently plays in France) was not able to secure a victory for one of league's weakest teams Strasbourg IG (5-5) in their game against Cholet (6-4) in the French ProA. Despite his good performance last Saturday Greer recorded 10 points. It's Greer's first season with the team. Greer is ranked fifth on the list of the best rebounders in the league and also on the list of best passers (fifth place). His overall stats this season are: 5.2ppg and 3.4rpg. Greer has both American and Dominican Republic nationalities. He used to play for the Dominican Republic national team three years ago.

He was MVP of the game. Horford had a double-double by scoring 25 points and getting 12 rebounds. He also added 4 assists and 4 steals in 42 minutes. The Atlanta Hawks have a solid 12-6 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Horford's sixth year with the team. Horford has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 16.8ppg, 10.2rpg and 3.2apg in the 17 games he played so far.

   #2. Francisco Garcia (201-F/G-81, college: Louisville, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA could not help the Sacramento Kings (7-13) in their last game on Monday.

   #3. Charlie Villanueva (209-F-84, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA was not able to help the Detroit Pistons (7-17) in their last game on Friday.

Despite Villanueva's Dominican Republic passport, he previously played for the USA U21 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Dominican Republic team. Strangely Villanueva has never played in Dominican Republic.

   #4. James Feldeine (193-G-88, college: Quinnipiac, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB was not able to secure a victory for Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (2-9) in their last game.

He also added 6 assists (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line) in 36 minutes. This year Ramon has relatively solid stats: 14.8ppg, 3.2rpg and 3.3apg in the six games. He also holds two passports: Dominican Republic and American. Strangely Ramon has never played in Dominican Republic.
