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 Eurocup). He led his Turkish team Banvit BK to a victory against the closely-ranked Buducnost (1-1) 89-80 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. Mejia scored 14 points and added 4 passes in 33 minutes on the court. Banvit Basketbol Kulubu (1-1) is placed second in group I. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. It's Mejia's first season with the team. Mejia is currently fifth on the list of most steals with 1.9spg. This year his other stats are: 17.1ppg, 5.9rpg, 3.6apg, 2FGP: 71.2%(47-66), 3FGP: 45.0% and FT: 76.2% in the eight games he played so far. Mejia has a dual citizenship: Dominican Republic and American. He played for the Dominican Republic senior national team eight years ago. Strangely Mejia has never played in Dominican Republic.

Jeff Greer
Jeff Greer
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international swingman Jeff Greer (196-79, college: Rutgers, currently plays in France). He led Strasbourg IG to a victory over the fifth-ranked Paris-Levallois (10-6) 88-73 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. Greer was MVP of the game. He recorded 21 points and had 3 steals. Strasbourg IG (11-5) is placed first in the ProA. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Greer is ranked third on the list of the best rebounders in the league and also on the list of best passers (fifth place). This season he averages: 5.6ppg, 3.2rpg, 2FGP: 29.7%, 3FGP: 25.7% and FT: 71.4%. Greer is another player who holds two passports: Dominican Republic and American. He played for the Dominican Republic national team in 2009. Greer used to play for Cocolos de San Pedro de Macoris in Dominican Republic league.

Trevor Ariza
Trevor Ariza
   #3. The Dominican Republic player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Trevor Ariza (203-85, agency: David Lee services, college: UCLA, currently plays in NBA). Ariza contributed to a Washington Wizards' victory against the Denver Nuggets (25-18) 112-108 in the NBA on Friday night. He recorded 14 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. The Washington Wizards have not so impressive 9-30 record this season. Ariza has relatively good stats this year: 7.4ppg, 4.8rpg, 1.8apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 39.1%, 3FGP: 27.9% and FT: 81.3%. He has both American and Dominican Republic nationalities. Ariza played for the Dominican Republic national team eight years ago. Apparently he has never played in Dominican Republic.

   #4. Forward Eulis Baez (198-82, college: W.Illinois, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB could not help one of league's weakest teams G.Canaria 2014 (12-6) to beat Gescrap BB (12-6). Baez scored 9 points and grabbed 5 rebounds (went 5 for 5 at the free throw line). But G.Canaria 2014 was defeated 81-70 on the road by the higher-ranked Gescrap BB (#4). Baez's overall stats this season are: 8.4ppg, 4.9rpg and 1.2apg. He used to play for the Dominican Republic national team back in 2009.

He scored 12 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 22 minutes. Assignia Manresa (3-15) is placed second from the bottom (#17) in the ACB. They ended the series of four consecutive loses. This year Asselin has relatively solid stats: 11.6ppg and 3.2rpg in the 18 games. He also holds two passports: Dominican Republic and American. Asselin used to play for the Dominican Republic national team seven years ago. He played also for Naco in Dominican Republic league.

Rodrigo Madera
Rodrigo Madera
   #6. Center Rodrigo Madera (208-90, currently plays in Canada), who plays in the Canadian university league CIS was not able to help the St.Francis Xavier (6-5) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Madera's very good performance the St.Francis Xavier (#4) was edged in an overtime 96-94 in Halifax, NS by the Huskies. He scored 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Madera's overall stats this season are: 9.9ppg and 4.1rpg. He is a former U17 international player as he played for the Dominican Republic team six years ago.


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

   #1. Alfred Horford (208-F/C-86, college: Florida, currently plays in NBA) led Atlanta Hawks to a victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves (17-21) 104-96 in the NBA in Monday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Horford had a double-double by scoring 28 points and getting 10 rebounds. He also added 3 blocks in 38 minutes. The Atlanta Hawks have 23-18 record this season. It's Horford's sixth year with the team. Horford has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 15.6ppg, 9.8rpg and 3.3apg in the 39 games he played so far.

   #2. James Feldeine (193-G-88, college: Quinnipiac, currently plays in Spain) was the main contributor in a Baloncesto Fuenlabrada's surprising victory against the third-ranked Valencia Basket (12-6) 72-69 in the Spanish ACB last Saturday. Feldeine was MVP of the game. He scored 37 points (!!!), had 4 rebounds and dished 5 assists (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line); quite an impressive performance considering it's only Feldeine's third season in pro basketball. Mad-Croc Fuenlabrada (5-13) is placed 16th in the ACB. It was his team's first victory after three consecutive loses. It's Feldeine's first year with the team. Feldeine is ranked second on the list of the top scorers in the league. This season he has very high stats. Feldeine averages: 17.1ppg, 2.7rpg and 2.4apg. He has a dual citizenship: Dominican Republic and American. Strangely Feldeine has never played in Dominican Republic.

   #3. Adris Deleon (180-G-84, college: E.Washington, currently plays in Australia), who plays in the Australian NBL could not help Wollongong Hawks (8-9) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Wollongong Hawks were edged 72-71 on the road by the leading New Zealand Breakers. Deleon was the top scorer with 34 points. He also added 4 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 38 minutes. It was Wollongong Hawks' sixth consecutive loss in a row. Deleon is ranked third on the list of the most steals in the league with 1.3spg. This year he also averages: 14.2ppg, 3.4rpg and 2.8apg in the 17 games.

   #4. Experienced Ricardo Greer (197-F/G-78, college: Pittsburgh, currently plays in France) contributed to an easy victory against the fifth-ranked Paris-Levallois (10-6) 88-73 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. Greer had a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting the same number of rebounds. He also added 8 assists and 3 steals in 31 minutes. Strasbourg IG (11-5) is placed first in the ProA. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Greer belongs to league's best rebounders (ranked #3) and also on the list of best passers (fifth place). He has very reliable stats this year: 13.7ppg, 8.1rpg, 5.2apg and 1.5spg in the 15 games. Greer is another player who holds two passports: Dominican Republic and American. Interesting that he has never played in Dominican Republic.

   #5. Charlie Villanueva (209-F-84, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA) contributed to an easy victory against the Orlando Magic (14-27) 105-90 in the NBA on Tuesday night. Villanueva scored 6 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in only 13 minutes. The Detroit Pistons have 16-25 record this season. Villanueva is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fourth year in Pistons' roster. This season he has relatively solid stats: 8.0ppg and 3.4rpg in the 30 games. Villanueva has both American and Dominican Republic nationalities. Despite his Dominican Republic passport, Villanueva previously played for the USA U21 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Dominican Republic team. Interesting that he has never played in Dominican Republic.

   #6. Elys Guzman (206-F/C-82, college: Bemidji St., currently plays in Uruguay), who plays in the Uruguayan LUB was not able to help Hebraica (0-2) in their last game on Friday.

Guzman also added 5 rebounds. This season he has relatively solid stats: 15.0ppg and 6.2rpg.

   #7. Dago Pena (198-G/F-88, college: Marshall, currently plays in Uruguay), who plays in the Uruguayan LUB was not able to secure a victory for Maldonado (1-0) in their last game. Despite Pena's very good performance his team lost 72-86 at home to the second-ranked Sayago in the Serie 2. He was the top scorer with 23 points. Pena also added 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals in 40 minutes. It was his first game for Maldonado this season.

   #8.
