Here is the weekly review of the top performing Central African players, who play currently abroad.

Romain Sato
Romain Sato
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international swingman Romain Sato (195-81, college: Xavier, currently plays in Spain). He managed to help Valencia Basket in a victory against the 11th-ranked Movil Estudiantes (13-19) 87-68 in the Spanish Liga Endesa in Wednesday night's game. Sato scored 5 points in 14 minutes on the court. Valencia Basket (23-9) is placed third in the Liga Endesa. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Sato's fourth season with the team. This year he averages: 5.8ppg, 2.4rpg, 2FGP: 45.7%, 3FGP: 36.1% in 30 games he played so far. Sato played for the Central African senior national team four years ago.

Max Kouguere
Max Kouguere
   #2. Second place goes to former international small forward Max Kouguere (198-87, currently plays in France). He could not help Olympique Antibes (11-22) to beat Le Portel (18-15). Kouguere scored 8 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Olympique Antibes was defeated 80-65 on the road by the much higher-ranked Le Portel (#7). His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. It's Kouguere's first season with the team. Kouguere's overall stats this year are: 8.0ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 44.8%, 3FGP: 38.5%. He has a dual citizenship: Congolese and Central African. Kouguere played for the Central African national team in 2015.

Jimmy Djimrabaye

   #3. The Central African player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Jimmy Djimrabaye (202-92, currently plays in France). He was not able to help Gravelines-Dunkerque in their game against Cholet Basket (14-19) in the French ProA. Djimrabaye scored 5 points in 10 minutes. Gravelines-Dunkerque lost 73-78 in Cholet to the lower-ranked (#11) Basket. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. This year Djimrabaye's overall stats are: 2.4ppg, 1.2rpg, 2FGP: 48.0% in 23 games. He played for the Central African national team two years ago.

Maxime Zianveni

   #4. Power forward Maxime Zianveni (198-79, currently plays in France) contributed to a 3-point Boulazac Basket's victory against the 14th-ranked Saint-Quentin (13-20) 62-59 in the French ProB (second division) in Tuesday night's game. Zianveni scored 8 points. Boulazac Basket Dordogne (19-14) is placed fourth in the ProB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is extremely important. Zianveni's total stats this season are: 7.1ppg, 4.9rpg, 1.9apg and 1.6spg. He is another player who holds two passports: Central African and French.

Entente Orleans 45 (ProB) added to their roster 25-year old Central African ex-international power forward Jimmy Djimrabaye (202-92).
