So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season.
But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen.
It's Meno's first year with the team.
Meno is currently first on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place).
He has individually a very good season with high stats. Meno averages: 22.5ppg, 11.8rpg, 2.5apg, 1.3bpg, 2FGP: 53.3%, 3FGP: 44.4% and FT: 58.3%.

He scored 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 31 minutes.
STB Le Havre (2-0) is placed third in the ProA.
But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go.
It's Kouguere's first season with the team.
Kouguere has relatively good stats this year: 12.5ppg, 5.0rpg in the two games he played so far.
He is another player who holds two passports: Congolese and Central African.

#3. The Congolese player who performed third best last week abroad was an international forward Nobel Boungou Colo (202-88), who plays in the French ProA. Boungou Colo could not help Limoges CSP Elite (0-2) in their last game on Monday. Despite his very good performance Limoges CSP Elite was defeated 70-62 on the road by the higher-ranked Strasbourg IG (#6).
Boungou Colo was the top scorer with 18 points. He also added 9 rebounds.
This season Boungou Colo has relatively solid stats: 11.0ppg, 6.5rpg, 2FGP: 61.5% and FT: 75.0%.

ADA Blois Basket (3-0) is placed first in the NM1.

Morlende's total stats this season are: 6.0ppg and 1.7apg.
Similarly like Akono and Boungou Colo above he has Congolese and French nationalities.

#6. Guard Enzo Tsonga (194-90) was not able to secure a victory for BBC Nyon (0-1) in their game against Lugano Tigers (1-0) in the Swiss LNA. Tsonga cannot count it as his best performance.
He recorded only 2 points in 21 minutes. It was his first game for BBC Nyon this season.
BBC Nyon was badly defeated 85-66 at home by the higher-ranked (#4) Lugano Tigers.
Tsonga is an international player who is currently on the senior Congolese National Team roster.
One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Congolese passport:

He was MVP of the game. Moses Randall scored 24 points in 31 minutes.
FIATC Joventut Badalona (2-1) is placed eighth in the ACB.
But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.

He is a naturalized American.
Despite Moses Randall's Congolese passport, he currently plays for the USA national team and is not eligible to play for the Congolese team.
