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

   #1. Adrian Uter (200-F/C-84, agency: Gross Zeev ISA, college: Hofstra, currently plays in Israel) led Maccabi Rishon to a victory over the sixth-ranked Hapoel Eilat (1-1) 101-90 in the Israeli Winner League in Sunday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Uter had a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 12 rebounds in 28 minutes. Maccabi Rishon Le-Zion (2-0) is placed second in the Winner League. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Uter belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #2) and also on the list of best rebounders (sixth place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Uter averages: 20.0ppg, 11.0rpg, 1.5apg and 3.0bpg in the two games he played so far. He is a naturalized American.

   #2. Orane Chin (200-F-88, college: CS Fullerton, currently plays in Denmark) was the major contributor in Bakken's victory against the sixth-ranked Aarhus BC (3-4) crushing them 105-77 in a derby game in the Danish Ligaen on Thursday night. He had a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 10 rebounds in 24 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Chin's first season in pro basketball. Bakken Bears (7-0) is placed first in the Ligaen. So far his team won all seven games in the Regular Season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Chin has very impressive stats this year: 17.4ppg and 7.4rpg in the seven games.

   #3. Corey Muirhead (197-F-83, college: W.Carolina, currently plays in Czech Republic), who plays in the Czech Republic NBL could not help BK Pardubice (3-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his very good performance BK Pardubice was defeated 97-85 on the road by the lower-ranked Basketbal Svitavy (#11). Muirhead recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 12 rebounds. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Muirhead is currently second on the league's list of best rebounders. This season he has very high stats. Muirhead averages: 15.5ppg, 9.8rpg, 2.8apg and 1.3spg. He has also Canadian passport.

   #4. McHugh Mattis (198-F-84, college: S.Florida, currently plays in Mexico), who plays in the Mexican LNBP (second division) was not able to help Abejas (9-7) in their last game on Thursday. Despite Mattis' very good performance Abejas was crushed 123-95 in Xalapa by the leading Halcones UV. He recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 12 rebounds. Mattis also added 3 assists and 2 blocks. Mattis is ranked fifth on the list of the best rebounders in the league and also on the list of best blockers (third place). This season he has very high stats. Mattis averages: 15.1ppg, 8.9rpg, 1.1apg, 1.5bpg and 1.6spg. He is a naturalized American.

Bucknor scored 10 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 16 minutes. TBB Trier (3-1) is placed fifth in the BBL. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Bucknor's overall stats are: 8.0ppg and 3.3rpg in the four games. He has a dual citizenship: Jamaican and Canadian. Despite Bucknor's Jamaican passport, he previously played for the Canadian national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Jamaican team.

   #6.

Robinson scored 14 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and made 4 blocks. Robinson is currently first on the list of best blockers. He has very reliable stats this season: 12.6ppg, 7.2rpg and 3.6bpg.

   #8. Geoff McDermott (203-F-87, agency: Interperformances, college: Providence, currently plays in Spain) managed to help Palencia Baloncesto in a victory against the ninth-ranked Planasa NV crushing them 98-77 in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division) in Friday night's game.
