We bring you last week's top performances from Trinidad and Tobagos who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.

Kibwe Trim
Kibwe Trim
   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Kibwe Trim (208-84, agency: Top Notch Sports, college: Sacred Heart, currently plays in South Korea). He was the major contributor in an Anyang KGC's victory against the closely-ranked Goyang Orions (6-6) 80-65 in the South Korean KBL in Saturday night's game. Trim recorded 14 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks in 20 minutes on the court. Anyang KGC (7-5) is placed fifth in the KBL. It was his team's first victory after four consecutive loses. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Trim's first year with the team. This season he averages: 3.0ppg, 4.7rpg, 2FGP: 46.2% and FT: 54.5% in the 10 games he played so far. Trim played for the Trinidad and Tobago senior national team two years ago.

Ian Young
Ian Young
   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Ian Young (191-81, college: Auburn, currently plays in Mexico), who plays in the Mexican LNBP (second division). He could not help Lechugueros (6-15) in their last game on Thursday. Despite Young's very good performance Lechugueros was edged 71-69 at home by the higher-ranked Huracanes (#9). He recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and making 10 passes. Young has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 18.7ppg, 2.0rpg, 6.0apg, 1.3spg, 3FGP: 35.3% and FT: 72.7%. Young is a naturalized American. He played for the Trinidad and Tobago national team in 2010. Strangely Young has never played in Trinidad and Tobago.

Julius Ashby
Julius Ashby
   #3. The Trinidad and Tobago player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Julius Ashby (205-82, college: Colorado, currently plays in Japan). He led Fukuoka Rizing to an easy victory against the seventh-ranked Shiga L-Stars (3-6) crushing them 99-75 in the Japanese BJ League on Saturday night. Ashby recorded 16 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 32 minutes. Fukuoka Rizing (6-3) is placed fifth in Western group. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Ashby's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 12.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 44.7% and FT: 76.2% in the nine games. Ashby played for the Trinidad and Tobago national team two years ago.

Kyle Rowley
Kyle Rowley
   #4. Center Kyle Rowley (213-90, currently plays in NCAA1) contributed to an easy victory against the Sonoma State University (3-2) crushing them 95-69 in the NCAA in Saturday night's game. Rowley scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in only 10 minutes. The Saint Mary's College of California has 0-0 conference record this season. This year Rowley's overall stats are: 7.3ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.5apg and 1.8bpg in the four games. He used to play for the Trinidad and Tobago national team back in 2009.

Moriba De Freitas
Moriba De Freitas
   #5. Former U17 international forward Moriba De Freitas (206-91, currently plays in NCAA1) was not able to help the Pepperdine (0-0) in their game against the Cal State - Northridge (0-0) in the NCAA. De Freitas cannot count Friday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 2 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and made 2 blocks. The Pepperdine was defeated 81-75 on the road by the Cal State - Northridge. De Freitas' total stats this season are: 7.3ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.5apg and 1.8bpg. He used to play for the Trinidad and Tobago U17 national team five years ago.

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

   #1. Joey Haywood (185-PG-84, currently plays in NBLCanada) was the major contributor in a Halifax Rainmen's victory against the Moncton Miracles (1-2) 87-83 in the NBL Canada in Thursday night's game. He scored 21 points, grabbed 5 boards, dished 4 assists and stole 3 balls. The Halifax Rainmen has 2-2 record this season. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This season Haywood has relatively solid stats: 12.0ppg, 6.0rpg and 1.8apg. He has a dual citizenship: Trinidad and Tobago and Canadian.

   #2. Experienced Shawn Myers (198-G/F-69, college: W.Georgia, currently plays in United Kingdom), who plays in the British BBL could not help Cheshire Jets (2-6) in their last game. Despite Myers' very good performance Cheshire Jets lost 84-97 on the road to the much higher-ranked (#4) Worcester Wolves. He had a double-double by scoring 17 points and getting 10 rebounds in 36 minutes. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Myers belongs to league's best rebounders and is ranked #7 with 8.6rpg. This year he also averages: 12.1ppg, 1.8apg and 1.3spg in the eight games he played so far. Myers is another player who holds two passports: Trinidad and Tobago and British.

   #3. D'or Fischer (211-C-81, college: W.Virginia, currently plays in VTB United League) was not able to help BC Donetsk (2-3) in their game against Krasnie Krilya (3-2) in the VTB United League. He did not beat the league record on Saturday evening. Fischer scored only 3 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and made 3 blocks. The sixth-placed BC Donetsk was defeated 64-59 in Samara by the higher-ranked Krasnie Krilya (#5) in the group A of VTB United League. Fischer is the league's best blocker. His overall stats this season are: 7.3ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.5apg and 1.8bpg. Fischer is a naturalized American. Apparently he has never played in Trinidad and Tobago.

Other top Trinidad and Tobago players, who play abroad:

Kris Joseph (200-F-88) plays for Boston Celtics in the NBA
DeVougn Lamont (208-F-84) plays for San Isidro in Argentinian TNA

LEB Gold newcomer Saenz Horeca Araberri landed 26-year old Trinidad and Tobago center Kyle Rowley (213-107kg-90, college: St.Mary's, CA). He was about to sign at Saski Baskonia (Liga Endesa).

He played in the final of WCC Tournament in 2013. Rowley was also a member of Trinidad and Tobago international progr...   [read more]
