   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international center Kevin Young (206-84, college: Missouri, currently plays in Uruguay). Young was the major contributor in an U Universitario's victory against the closely-ranked Hebraica (9-6) 102-95 in a derby game in the Uruguayan LUB in Monday night's game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 22 points and getting 12 rebounds. Young also added 4 assists. Urunday Universitario (11-7) is placed fourth in the LUB. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Young has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.6ppg, 9.3rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 61.9%(104-168) and FT: 81.1%. Young played for the Jamaican national team in 2006.

   #3. The Jamaican player who performed third best last week abroad was former international center Jerome Jordan (215-86, college: Tulsa, currently plays in Spain). He could not help Joventut (2-10) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Jordan's good performance Joventut was badly defeated 84-66 at home by the leading Real Madrid. He was the second best scorer with 13 points. Jordan also added 6 rebounds. Jordan has relatively good stats this season: 12.0ppg, 5.4rpg, 1.2apg, 1.1bpg, 2FGP: 52.3% and FT: 81.2%. He played for the Jamaican national team four years ago.

Akeem Scott
Akeem Scott
   #4. Guard Akeem Scott (185-83, college: High Point, currently plays in ASEAN League) contributed to a Saigon Heat's victory against the league leader Hong Kong ELL (7-1) 121-115 in the ASEAN League on Tuesday night. Scott scored 29 points (!!!), grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 9 assists (was perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line !!!). Saigon Heat (3-2) is placed fifth in the ASEAN League. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Scott has very high stats. He averages: 27.6ppg, 6.4rpg, 6.4apg and 2.2spg. Scott is a naturalized American. Worth to mention he played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball. He used to play for the Jamaican national team back in 2014.


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

   #1. Dane Johnson (208-C-86, college: Hofstra, currently plays in Uruguay) could not help Larre Borges (6-12) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Larre Borges lost 91-99 in a derby game to the leading Atletico Welcome. Johnson had a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 16 rebounds. He also added 4 assists and 2 blocks in 38 minutes. It was Larre Borges' fifth consecutive loss in a row. It's Johnson's first season with the team. Johnson has relatively good stats this year: 13.9ppg, 11.1rpg, 2.5apg and 2.1bpg in 17 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American.

   #2. Ryan Harrow (188-G-91, agency: 3Eye, college: Georgia St., currently plays in Basketball Champions League) was not able to help Rosa (1-9) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite Harrow's very good performance Rosa was defeated 102-93 on the road by the higher-ranked Umana Venezia (#3). He was the second best scorer with 22 points. Harrow also added 5 rebounds.

He has relatively good stats this year: 13.4ppg, 2.5rpg, 3.6apg and 1.4spg. Harrow is a naturalized American.

   #3. Sek Henry (193-G-87, college: Nebraska, currently plays in Israel) led Maccabi Ashdod to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Bnei Hasharon (3-9) 95-87 in the Israeli Winner League last Thursday. He was MVP of the game. Henry had a double-double by scoring 22 points and making 10 passes. He also added 4 rebounds (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) in 36 minutes. Maccabi Ashdod/Be'er Tuvia (12-4) is placed second in the Winner League. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Henry has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 15.3ppg, 2.7rpg and 5.1apg in 12 games. Henry is a naturalized American.

   #4. Experienced Jermaine Bucknor (201-F-83, college: Richmond, currently plays in Germany) was not able to secure a victory for Gladiators (7-3) in their last game.

   #5. Torin Francis (210-C-83, college: Notre Dame, currently plays in Argentina) couldn't help Quimsa (5-5) in their game against Salta Basket (2-7) in the Argentinian LigaA.
