   #2. Second place goes to former international power forward Samardo Samuels (206-89, college: Louisville, currently plays in France). Samuels led Limoges CSP Elite to an easy victory against the 14th-ranked Chalons-Reims (6-9) crushing them 106-83 in the French ProA on Friday night. He scored 12 points. Limoges CSP Elite (7-7) is placed ninth in the ProA. Samuels has relatively good stats this season: 12.2ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.2apg, 2FGP: 57.5%(50-87), 3FGP: 36.4% and FT: 69.4%. He played for the Jamaican national team in 2014.

Dylan Ennis
Dylan Ennis
   #3. The Jamaican player who performed third best last week abroad was former international point guard Dylan Ennis (187-91, agency: BeoBasket, college: Oregon, currently plays in Spain). He could not help Andorra (5-8) to beat Leche Rio Breogan (4-8). Ennis recorded 6 points and added 5 assists in 21 minutes. Andorra lost 79-85 on the road to the lower-ranked (#15) Leche Rio Breogan. Ennis has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 15.8ppg, 3.5rpg, 2.8apg, 2FGP: 52.1%, 3FGP: 34.0% and FT: 82.3% in 13 games he played so far. Ennis has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Jamaican. He played for the Jamaican national team four years ago.

Jerome Jordan
Jerome Jordan
   #4. Center Jerome Jordan (215-86, college: Tulsa, currently plays in Spain) faced previously mentioned Dylan Ennis in the Spanish Liga Endesa last game. Jordan contributed to a Leche Rio Breogan's victory against the closely-ranked Andorra (5-8) 85-79. He recorded 9 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. This season Jordan has relatively solid stats: 10.8ppg and 5.1rpg. 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. Sek Henry (193-G-87, college: Nebraska, currently plays in FIBA Europe Cup) could not help Pinar Karsiyaka (1-1) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the third-placed Pinar Karsiyaka (1-1) lost 87-96 at home to the leading s Oliver Baskets in the group I of FIBA Europe Cup. Henry was the top scorer with 26 points. He also added 5 passes in 44 minutes. There are only four games left until the end of the FIBA Europe Cup Second Stage. So now every game will be critical. It's Henry's first season with the team. Henry has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.3ppg, 3.0rpg and 5.3apg in eight games he played so far. Henry is a naturalized American.

   #2. Daniel Mullings (189-G-91, college: N.Mexico St., currently plays in FIBA Europe Cup) was not able to help Joensuun Kataja (1-1) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite his very good performance the third-placed Joensuun Kataja (1-1) was defeated 104-89 on the road by the second-ranked Bakken in the group L of FIBA Europe Cup. Mullings was the second best scorer with 20 points. He also added 6 rebounds and dished 5 assists. There are only four games left until the end of the FIBA Europe Cup Second Stage. So now every game is very crucial. Mullings has relatively good stats this season: 11.0ppg, 6.2rpg, 3.7apg and 2.2spg. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Jamaican.

   #3. Ryan Martin (206-F-91, college: Tenn Tech, currently plays in FIBA Europe Cup) faced previously mentioned Daniel Mullings in the FIBA Europe Cup last game. Martin led his Danish team Bakken to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Joensuun Kataja (1-1) 104-89. He scored 15 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and made 2 blocks in a mere 19 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Martin's third season in pro basketball. There are only four games left until the end of the FIBA Europe Cup Second Stage. So now every game will be important. It's Martin's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 11.0ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.4apg in eight games. Martin is another player who holds two passports: Jamaican and British. Despite his Jamaican nationality, Martin previously played for the British U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Jamaican team.

   #4. Kyle Hunt (208-F/C-89, college: Oklahoma S&A, currently plays in Lebanon) was not able to secure a victory for one of league's weakest teams Beirut Club (4-3) in their last game. Despite Hunt's very good performance Beirut Club lost 68-77 in Dik El Mehdi to the higher-ranked (#3) Champville. He had a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 17 rebounds. Hunt also added 3 blocks in 32 minutes. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. Hunt has very impressive stats this year: 17.4ppg, 8.3rpg, 1.3apg and 1.3spg in seven games. He is a naturalized American.

   #5. Quintrell Thomas (203-PF-90, college: UNLV, currently plays in Israel) led Hasharon to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Hapoel Kfar Saba (3-8) 93-85 in the Israeli National League (second division) in Tuesday night's game. Thomas was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 25 points and getting 14 rebounds. Thomas also added 2 blocks (made all of his seven free throws) in 34 minutes. Maccabi Hod Hasharon (3-8) is placed 12th in the National League. Thomas has very impressive stats this year: 23.0ppg, 11.8rpg and 1.6bpg in 11 games. He is a naturalized American.

   #6. Ryan Rhoomes (203-C-92, agency: Duran International, college: Fordham, currently plays in France) was the major contributor in Saint-Quentin's victory against the seventh-ranked SO Maritime Boulogne 74-71 in the French NM1 (third division) last Friday. Rhoomes recorded a double-double by scoring 13 points and getting 12 rebounds. This season Rhoomes has very high stats. He averages: 17.0ppg, 6.4rpg and 1.4apg. Rhoomes is a naturalized American.

   #7. Clint Robinson (203-F/C-94, college: Ill.-Chicago, currently plays in Portugal) contributed to a Esgueira / Oli's victory against the ninth-ranked Galitos-Barreiro 84-74 in the Portuguese LPB on Saturday night. He had a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting the same number of rebounds in 33 minutes. This year Robinson's overall stats are: 9.7ppg, 9.9rpg and 2.1bpg in 11 games.

   #8. Brynton Lemar (193-G-95, college: Cal-Davis, currently plays in Hungary) helped Sopron KC win their game against the closely-ranked DEAC 102-85 in the Hungarian A Division in Saturday night's game. He scored 23 points and added 3 assists. This season Lemar has very high stats. He averages: 19.5ppg, 2.7rpg and 3.2apg. Lemar is a naturalized American.

   #9. Experienced Sherman Gay (201-F/C-82, college: Loyola Mary, currently plays in Germany) couldn't help one of league's weakest teams Crailsheim Merlins (1-11) in their last game. Despite Gay's good performance the bottom-ranked Crailsheim Merlins was badly defeated 89-70 in Weissenfels by the one of league's weakest teams (#17) Mitteldeutscher BC. He was the top scorer with 14 points. Gay also added 2 shots in 25 minutes. This year Gay's overall stats are: 8.9ppg and 3.4rpg in seven games. He is a naturalized American.

   #10. Jarred Ogungbemi-Jackson (178-PG-91, college: Calgary, currently plays in France) helped Aix-Maurienne win their game against the closely-ranked SPO Rouen 77-70 in the French ProB (second division) last Friday. Ogungbemi-Jackson scored 13 points and added 5 assists (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line). Ogungbemi-Jackson has reliable stats this season: 11.6ppg, 3.1rpg, 4.0apg and 1.4spg. He has both Canadian and Jamaican nationalities. Despite Ogungbemi-Jackson's Jamaican passport, he previously played for the Canadian university national team and probably cannot be called to the Jamaican team.
