   #2. Second place goes to former international power forward Kenny Kadji (211-88, college: Miami, FL, currently plays in Turkey). Kadji could not help one of league's weakest teams Trabzonspor (7-14) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance Trabzonspor was badly defeated 96-78 on the road by the higher-ranked Istanbul BBSK (#11). Kadji was the top scorer with 18 points. He also added 4 rebounds. Kadji has relatively good stats this season: 14.3ppg, 5.8rpg, 1.5bpg, 2FGP: 58.6%(102-174), 3FGP: 26.9% and FT: 70.9%. He played for the Cameroonian national team in 2015.

   #3. The Cameroonian player who performed third best last week abroad was an experienced former international forward Harding NaNa (203-81, college: Delaware, currently plays in Denmark). NaNa was not able to help Svendborg (13-15) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Svendborg was edged 59-58 at home by the league outsider (#8) Stevnsgade. NaNa had a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 18 rebounds. He also added 4 assists and 2 blocks in 33 minutes. It was Svendborg's third consecutive loss in a row.

Nnoko cannot count it as his best performance. He recorded only 3 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 16 minutes. VL Pesaro lost 78-93 in Varese to the higher-ranked (#14) Openjobmetis VA.

He used to play for the Cameroonian national team back in 2011.

Njoya cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 3 points. STB Le Havre was defeated 83-78 in Evreux by the lower-ranked ALM Evreux (#6). It was STB Le Havre's third consecutive loss in a row. Njoya has averaged so far 1.8ppg and 1.4apg. He is a former international player as two years ago he still played for the Cameroonian senior national team.


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

   #1. Experienced Danny Gibson (177-PG-84, college: S.Indiana, currently plays in Bulgaria) led Lukoil Academic Sofia to an easy victory against the seventh-ranked Cherno More (5-14) crushing them 107-60 in the Bulgarian NBL on Saturday night. Gibson scored 15 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 7 assists in 29 minutes. Lukoil Academic Sofia (16-3) is placed first in the NBL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This year Gibson has relatively solid stats: 13.9ppg, 3.3rpg, 4.9apg and 1.5spg in 19 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Cameroonian and American.

   #2. Paul Biligha (200-C-90, agency: Players Group, currently plays in Italy) could not help Vanoli Cremona (6-16) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Biligha's good performance the bottom-ranked Vanoli Cremona was defeated 86-82 on the road by the much higher-ranked Betaland Cdo (#4). He recorded 10 points and blocked 2 shots. This season Biligha has relatively solid stats: 11.1ppg, 5.5rpg, 1.1apg and 1.3bpg. He is another player who holds two passports: Cameroonian and Italian. Despite Biligha's Cameroonian nationality, he previously played for the Italian U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Cameroonian team.

   #3. Ralph Temgoua (194-G-87, college: St.Lawrence, currently plays in France) was not able to help Quimper UJAP (20-8) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Temgoua's very good performance Quimper UJAP was edged 62-61 in Andrezieux by the lower-ranked ALS Basket (#7). He was the second best scorer with 15 points. Temgoua also added 5 rebounds. Temgoua has averaged so far 8.9ppg, 3.1rpg and 2.3apg. He has both Cameroonian and French nationalities.

   #4. Jean-Dieudonniz Biog (205-C-95, currently plays in France) contributed to a Saint Vallier's victory against the 16th-ranked Union Rennes (11-17) 83-77 in the French NM1 (third division) in Tuesday night's game. Biog scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in only 13 minutes. Saint Vallier Basket Drome (14-14) is placed 11th in the NM1. Biog has averaged so far 3.3ppg and 2.5rpg in 26 games. He also holds two passports: Cameroonian and French. Despite Biog's Cameroonian nationality, he previously played for the French U20 national team and probably cannot be called to the Cameroonian team.

   #5. Franck Kouagnia (201-F-89, currently plays in Sweden) was the major contributor in Eskilstuna's victory against the fourth-ranked Lobas (7-8) crushing them 83-59 in the Swedish Basketettan (second division) on Saturday night.
