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


Amara Sy
Amara Sy
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international forward Amara Sy (202-81, agency: BeoBasket, currently plays in France). He contributed to Monaco's victory against the third-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (3-0) 61-55 in the French ProA in Monday night's game. Sy scored 9 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 22 minutes on the court. AS Monaco Basket (2-1) is placed seventh in the ProA. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Sy has relatively good stats this year: 12.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 2FGP: 65.2%(15-23) and FT: 66.7% in three games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Mali and French. Sy played for the Mali senior national team six years ago.

Ibrahim Saounera
Ibrahim Saounera
   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Ibrahim Saounera (179-87, currently plays in France). Saounera contributed to an easy victory against the 14th-ranked CFBB (0-2) crushing them 90-54 in the French NM1 (third division) on Saturday night. He scored 10 points and added 4 passes in 20 minutes. Vendee Challans Basket (2-0) is placed second in the NM1. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Saounera has relatively solid stats: 14.0ppg, 2.5rpg, 5.5apg, 3FGP: 33.3% in two games. He is another player who holds two passports: Mali and French. Saounera played for the Mali national team in 2015.

Mamadou Sy
Mamadou Sy
   #3. The Mali player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Mamadou Sy (196-85, college: Cloud County CC, currently plays in France). He managed to help Brissac-Aubance Basket to win against the league outsider SAP Vaucluse (0-2) 76-70 in the French NM1 (third division) in Saturday night's game. Sy scored only 4 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Brissac-Aubance Basket (2-0) is placed first in the NM1. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This season Sy averages: 5.0ppg, 6.5rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 44.4%. Similarly like Saounera and Sy above he has both Mali and French nationalities. Sy played for the Mali national team six years ago.

Sourata Cisse
Sourata Cisse
   #4. Swingman Sourata Cisse (196-86, currently plays in France) is a teammate of previously mentioned Mamadou Sy and both played together in the last French NM1 game. Cisse contributed to Brissac-Aubance's victory against the league outsider SAP Vaucluse (0-2) 76-70. He scored 5 points and added 5 passes in 28 minutes. It's Cisse's first season with the team. Cisse has reliable stats this year: 13.0ppg and 4.0apg in two games. Similarly like three previous players above, he also holds two passports: Mali and French. Cisse used to play for the Mali national team back in 2015.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Mali passport:

   #1. Nouhoum Bocoum (208-F/C-94, college: Arkansas St., currently plays in Spain) could not help CB Guadalajara (0-2) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance the 14th-placed CB Guadalajara (0-2) was crushed 96-70 on the road by the much higher-ranked Rivas (#4) in the Group B. Bocoum recorded a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 10 rebounds. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Bocoum's first year with the team. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Bocoum averages: 15.5ppg and 8.5rpg. He has a dual citizenship: Mali and American.
