DYLAN ENNIS
Here is the weekly review of the top performing Jamaican players, who play currently abroad.


Dylan Ennis
Dylan Ennis
   #1. This week's number one is former international point guard Dylan Ennis (187-91, agency: BeoBasket, college: Oregon, currently plays in Spain). He was the major contributor in Andorra's victory against the 16th-ranked Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (7-15) 89-88 in the Spanish Liga Endesa in Sunday night's game. Ennis recorded 18 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 28 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. MoraBanc Andorra (11-11) is placed ninth in the Liga Endesa. It's Ennis' first year with the team. Ennis has relatively good stats this season: 14.8ppg, 3.1rpg, 2.8apg, 2FGP: 50.7%, 3FGP: 34.4% and FT: 78.1% in 22 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Jamaican. Ennis played for the Jamaican senior national team five years ago.

Jerome Jordan

   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international center Jerome Jordan (215-86, college: Tulsa, currently plays in EuroCup) is a teammate of previously mentioned Dylan Ennis. But that was another game of his team in Eurocup which we would like to mention. Jordan led his Spanish team Andorra to a 2-point victory against the leader ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (5-1) 82-80. He scored 14 points in a mere 16 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group H. MoraBanc Andorra (5-1) is placed second. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. This year Jordan averages: 6.1ppg, 2.3rpg, 2FGP: 58.1%(18-31) and FT: 68.4% in eight games. He played for the Jamaican national team in 2014.

Durand Scott

   #3. The Jamaican player who performed third best last week abroad was former international swingman Durand Scott (196-90, college: Miami, FL, currently plays in Israel). He led Galil Gilboa to a 1-point victory against the league outsider Bnei Hasharon (4-17) 90-89 in the Israeli Winner League last Thursday. Scott scored 15 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Hapoel Galil Gilboa (9-12) is placed seventh in the Winner League. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Scott has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.7ppg, 3.2rpg, 2.5apg, 2FGP: 51.0%, 3FGP: 41.2% and FT: 80.8%. Scott is a naturalized American.

Young scored 9 points in 16 minutes. But the second-placed Bigua (2-2) was crushed 111-78 in a derby game by the leading Olimpia in the Places 7-10 group. There are only two games left until the end of the Second Stage. So now every game is very crucial. This year Young's overall stats are: 5.0ppg, 5.0rpg and 1.5apg in four games. He used to play for the Jamaican national team thirteen years ago.

Rose scored 14 points and added 3 assists. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Leones de Ponce (2-1) is placed fourth in the BSN. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Rose's total stats this year are: 6.7ppg, 2.0rpg and 2.3apg. He used to play for the Jamaican national team five years ago.

Adrian Uter
Adrian Uter
   #8. Power forward Adrian Uter (201-84, also represented by BeoBasket, college: Hofstra, currently plays in Puerto Rico) is a teammate of previously mentioned Weyinmi Rose.

He scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in only 13 minutes. Leones de Ponce (2-1) is placed fourth in the BSN. This year Uter's total stats are: 6.7ppg, 5.3rpg, 1.3apg and 1.3bpg in three games.
