He recorded 9 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Etoile Angers Basket (8-4) is placed fourth in Group B. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season.

Gudul cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points. ADA Blois was defeated 89-74 on the road by the higher-ranked JA Vichy (#4). They ended the series of three consecutive victories. Gudul has reliable stats this season: 12.8ppg and 6.4rpg.

   #8. Point guard Carl Ona-Embo (185-89, currently plays in Germany) contributed to an easy victory against the 13th-ranked Uni Baskets (8-13) 67-49 in the German ProA (second division) last Saturday.

Worth to mention Ona-Embo played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball. Despite he played previously for the French U20 national team, Ona-Embo is currently in the DR Congolese national team roster.


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

   #1. Experienced Charles Kahudi (199-SF-86, currently plays in EuroCup) led his French team ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket to a victory over the closely-ranked Lokomotiv (3-2) 72-61 in the Eurocup in Wednesday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Kahudi had a double-double by scoring 13 points and getting 10 rebounds in 26 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group F. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (5-0) is placed first. So far his team won all five games in the Top 16. They will play only one more game in the Eurocup Top 16. And that game will be critical. It's Kahudi's fourth season with the team. He has relatively good stats this year: 10.3ppg and 4.7rpg in 12 games he played so far. Kahudi has a dual citizenship: DR Congolese and French.

   #2. Junior Etou (203-F-94, college: Tulsa, currently plays in Turkey) contributed to a Sakarya BSB's victory against the closely-ranked Buyukcekmece (6-10) 73-69 in the Turkish BSL on Sunday night. Etou scored 13 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 34 minutes. Sakarya Buyuksehir Basketbol (5-11) is placed 13th in the BSL. It was his team's first victory after nine consecutive loses. Etou has relatively good stats this year: 10.8ppg, 7.7rpg and 1.4apg in 15 games.

   #3. Cedric Kuakumensah (204-F-93, college: Brown, currently plays in France) was the main contributor in Souffelweyersheim's victory against the fourth-ranked Orchesien BC (14-8) 84-70 in the French NM1 (third division) in Tuesday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Kuakumensah scored 19 points, had 6 rebounds, passed 3 assists and added 2 blocks; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. BC Souffelweyersheim (20-2) is placed second in Group A. It was his team's 18th consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Kuakumensah has relatively good stats this season: 10.4ppg, 7.0rpg and 1.9apg. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Kuakumensah has never played in DR Congo.

   #4. Yannick Bokolo (191-SG-85, currently plays in France) helped Pau-Lacq-Orthez win their game against the closely-ranked JDA Dijon (16-3) 63-59 in the French Jeep ELITE last Sunday. He recorded 6 points in only 13 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Elan Bearnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez (13-6) is placed second in the Jeep ELITE. It's Bokolo's fifth season with the team. This year Bokolo's overall stats are: 2.4ppg and 1.3apg in 17 games. He is another player who holds two passports: DR Congolese and French.

   #5. Viny Okouo (215-C-97, currently plays in EuroCup). Okouo could not help Unicaja Malaga (3-2) to beat Valencia Basket (5-0). He did not beat the league record on Wednesday evening. Okouo scored only 3 points. The second-placed Unicaja Malaga (3-2) was edged 72-69 on the road by the leading Valencia Basket in the group G of Eurocup. It was Unicaja Malaga's first loss after three consecutive victories. His team will play only one more game in the Eurocup Top 16. And now that game is quite important. This season Okouo averages just 1.4ppg.

   #6. Nicola Akele (203-F-95, college: Rhode Island, currently plays in Italy) helped Roseto Sharks win their game against the fifth-ranked Unieuro Forli 84-76 in the Italian Serie A2 (second division) in Wednesday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Akele recorded 22 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 40 minutes. Akele has relatively good stats this year: 13.8ppg, 7.0rpg, 1.6apg and 1.3spg in 20 games. He has both DR Congolese and Italian nationalities. Despite Akele's DR Congolese passport, he previously played for the Italian U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the DR Congolese team.

   #7. Joel Ntambwe (206-F-98, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA was not able to help the UNLV (4-1) in their last game on Saturday.

Ntambwe has relatively good stats this season: 12.9ppg and 6.1rpg.

   #8. Bismack Biyombo (206-C-92, currently plays in NBA) managed to help Charlotte Hornets in a victory against the Memphis Grizzlies 100-92 in the NBA on Friday night. He scored only one point, grabbed 7 rebounds and made 3 blocks in 32 minutes. This year Biyombo's overall stats are: 4.6ppg, 5.0rpg and 1.1bpg in 27 games.

   #9. Eric Katenda (206-F-92, college: N.Texas, currently plays in Iceland) helped Njardvik win their game against the fifth-ranked KR 71-55 in the Icelandic Dominos League last Monday. He scored 6 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 24 minutes. This year Katenda has relatively solid stats: 11.1ppg, 7.9rpg and 1.4apg in 23 games. He also holds two passports: DR Congolese and French.

   #10. Cedric Belemene-Dzabatou (198-F-96, currently plays in NCAA2) was not able to secure a victory for the University of Tampa (3-5) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite Belemene-Dzabatou's good performance his team was badly defeated 88-71 in Lakeland by the Florida Southern College. He recorded 11 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. Belemene-Dzabatou's overall stats this season are: 9.6ppg and 8.7rpg.
