EVARISTE SHONGANYA
We bring you last week's top performances from Congolese who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Evariste Shonganya
Evariste Shonganya
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Evariste Shonganya (204-92, currently plays in Sweden). He was the major contributor in a KFUM Jamtland's victory against the closely-ranked Boras Basket (8-4) 120-113 in the Swedish Basketligan last Sunday. Shonganya recorded 22 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and made 2 blocks. KFUM Jamtland Basket (9-3) is placed third in the Basketligan. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Shonganya's first year with the team. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Shonganya averages: 19.8ppg, 12.1rpg, 4.0apg, 1.5bpg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 61.6%(90-146), 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 63.2%. He is currently a member of the DR Congolese senior national team.

   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Emmanuel Mudiay (196-96, currently plays in NBA). He could not help the New York Knicks (4-10) in their last game on Monday. Despite Mudiay's very good performance the New York Knicks (4-10) were edged 116-115 on the road by the Chicago Bulls. He scored 16 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Mudiay has relatively good stats this season: 7.4ppg, 3.0rpg, 2.0apg, 3FGP: 30.8% and FT: 44.4%. He played for the DR Congolese national team in 2017.

   #3. The DR Congolese player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Ruphin Kayembe (201-92, currently plays in France). Kayembe led ALM Evreux to a victory over the closely-ranked Chorale de Roanne (4-1) 92-87 in the French ProB (second division) last Friday. He was MVP of the game. Kayembe scored 23 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 28 minutes. ALM Evreux Basket (3-2) is placed sixth in the ProB. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Kayembe has relatively solid stats: 13.3ppg, 6.5rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 67.9%(19-28) in four games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: DR Congolese and Belgian.

   #6. Guard Mathieu Kamba (196, agency: Dynamics Global Management, college: Cent.Arkansas, currently plays in Spain) was not able to secure a victory for Araberri (1-6) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Araberri lost 81-96 at home to the higher-ranked (#13) Barca II. Kamba was the second best scorer with 18 points in 34 minutes; not bad, considering it's only his first season in pro basketball. Kamba averaged so far 12.0ppg, 2.7rpg, 1.1apg and 2.4spg in seven games. He is an international player who is currently on the senior DR Congolese National Team roster.

Jonathan Kasibabu

   #7. International forward Jonathan Kasibabu (203-96, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA couldn't help the Fairfield in their last game on Tuesday. Despite Kasibabu's good performance his team was crushed 90-57 on their home court in Fairfield by the Purdue University. He recorded 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. It was his first game for Fairfield this season. Kasibabu is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fourth year in Fairfield's roster.

His overall stats this year are: 4.2ppg and 3.4rpg. Munanga is also in the roster of the DR Congolese national team.


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

Despite his very good performance Sakarya BSB was edged 99-97 on the road by the second-ranked Leiden. Etou was the second best scorer with 23 points. He also added 8 rebounds in 28 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Etou's first season in pro basketball. There are only two games left until the end of the FIBA Europe Cup Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Etou's first year with the team. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Etou averages: 16.0ppg, 7.8rpg and 1.3apg in four games he played so far.

   #2. Charles Kahudi (199-SF-86, currently plays in France) was not able to help ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket in their game against SIG Strasbourg (5-4) in the French ProA. Kahudi scored 5 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in 31 minutes. The league leader ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket lost 92-97 in Strasbourg to the lower-ranked (#7) SIG Strasbourg. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Kahudi is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fourth year in ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's roster. He has relatively good stats this season: 11.9ppg, 4.6rpg, 1.3apg and 1.1spg in seven games. Kahudi has a dual citizenship: DR Congolese and French.

   #3. Viny Okouo (215-C-97, currently plays in Spain) managed to help Unicaja Malaga in a victory against the 15th-ranked Leche Rio Breogan (2-5) 78-72 in the Spanish Liga Endesa in Sunday night's game. Okouo scored only 2 points in 4 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Unicaja Malaga this season. His team is placed fourth in the Liga Endesa.

   #4. Kevin Tumba (206-C/F-91, currently plays in Spain) was not able to secure a victory for UCAM Murcia (2-5) in their game against FC Barcelona (7-1) in the Spanish Liga Endesa. Tumba cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 3 points. UCAM Murcia was crushed 105-73 in Barcelona by the leading FC Barcelona. Tumba's overall stats this season are: 3.3ppg and 3.6rpg. He is another player who holds two passports: DR Congolese and Belgian.

   #5. Moses Ehambe (198-G/F-86, agency: Octagon Europe, college: ORU, currently plays in France) couldn't help Le Portel (4-5) in their game against Pau-Lacq-Orthez (4-5) in the French ProA. Ehambe scored 9 points in 23 minutes. But Le Portel was crushed 92-69 on the opponent's court by the higher-ranked (#10) Pau-Lacq-Orthez. It was Le Portel's third consecutive loss in a row. Ehambe's stats this year are: 10.4ppg, 1.9rpg and 1.1apg in nine games. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Ehambe has never played in DR Congo.

   #6. David Kapinga (180-PG-95, college: Union, KY, currently plays in Canada) was the major contributor in an University of Calgary's victory against the Huskies 107-89 in the U Sports in Saturday night's game. He scored 18 points, had 9 rebounds and dished 8 assists. Kapinga's stats this season are: 11.3ppg, 3.7rpg, 4.5apg and 2.7spg. He has both DR Congolese and Canadian nationalities.

   #7. Cedric Kuakumensah (204-F-93, college: Brown, currently plays in France) contributed to an easy victory against the eighth-ranked Sorgues BC crushing them 87-66 in the French NM1 (third division) on Saturday night. Kuakumensah recorded 5 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Kuakumensah's stats this season are: 11.1ppg, 7.9rpg and 1.3apg. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Kuakumensah has never played in DR Congo.

   #8. Bismack Biyombo (206-C-92, currently plays in NBA) couldn't help the Charlotte Hornets in their game against the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA. He cannot count Friday's game as one of the best ones. Biyombo recorded only one point in 5 minutes on the court. His team were edged 133-132 in the NBA. This year his overall stats are: 2.5ppg, 2.3rpg and 1.3bpg in six games.

Despite Akele's DR Congolese nationality, he previously played for the Italian U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the DR Congolese team.

   #10. Florent Thamba (208-F-99, currently plays college basketball in the States) couldn't help the Baylor in their game against the Texas Southern University in the NCAA. Thamba recorded only 4 points. It was his first game for Baylor this season. His team was edged 72-69.
