Mudiay scored 9 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 24 minutes on the court. But the New York Knicks (13-54) lost 94-102 on the road to the Kings.

He plays currently for the DR Congolese national team.

Kamba recorded 6 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Araberri was defeated 71-62 on their home court in Vitoria-Gasteiz by the one of league's weakest teams CB Prat (#17).

Mukendi cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 2 points in 13 minutes. Azuqueca (#8) lost 71-78 in Azpeitia to the higher-ranked (#5) Azpeitia ISB in the East group. It was Azuqueca's fifth consecutive loss in a row. This year Mukendi's total stats are: 4.7ppg and 2.6rpg in 24 games. He is also in the roster of the DR Congolese national team.

He scored only 3 points. PS Karlsruhe Lions (14-13) is placed eighth in the ProA. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Ona-Embo has averaged so far 8.3ppg, 2.1rpg and 2.5apg. Worth to mention Ona-Embo played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball. He is an international player who is currently on the senior 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 Andorra (5-1) 79-75 in the Eurocup in Tuesday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Kahudi recorded 21 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 30 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group F. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (5-1) is placed first. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. It's Kahudi's fourth season with the team. This year he averages: 10.0ppg and 4.3rpg in 15 games he played so far. Kahudi has a dual citizenship: DR Congolese and French.

   #2. Eric Katenda (206-F-92, college: N.Texas, currently plays in Iceland) was the main contributor in Njardvik's victory against the league outsider Breidablik (1-20) crushing them 102-70 in the Icelandic Dominos League last Sunday. He was MVP of the game. Katenda recorded a double-double by scoring 22 points and getting 10 rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. UMFN Njardvik (16-5) is placed second in the Dominos League. Katenda's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Katenda has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.4ppg, 10.4rpg and 2.4bpg. Katenda is another player who holds two passports: DR Congolese and French.

   #3. Kevin Tumba (206-C/F-91, currently plays in Basketball Champions League). He could not help UCAM Murcia (13-1) to beat Antwerp Giants (6-8). Tumba recorded only 4 points in 21 minutes. The ninth-placed UCAM Murcia (13-1) lost 67-75 on the road to the higher-ranked (#4) Antwerp Giants in the group A of Basketball Champions League. This year Tumba's overall stats are: 3.9ppg and 3.7rpg in 10 games. He has both DR Congolese and Belgian nationalities.

   #4. Cedric Kuakumensah (204-F-93, college: Brown, currently plays in France) contributed to an easy victory against the 13th-ranked Recy Saint-Martin (7-19) 71-55 in the French NM1 (third division) in Saturday night's game. Kuakumensah scored 10 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 22 minutes. BC Souffelweyersheim (24-2) is placed first in Group A. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended. It's Kuakumensah's first season with the team. This year he has relatively solid stats: 10.2ppg, 7.0rpg and 1.9apg in 25 games. Kuakumensah is a naturalized American. Strangely he has never played in DR Congo.

   #5. Nicola Akele (203-F-95, college: Rhode Island, currently plays in Italy) contributed to an easy victory against the eighth-ranked A.Costa IM (11-13) crushing them 99-78 in the Italian Serie A2 (second division) on Sunday night. Akele scored 20 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 35 minutes. Roseto Sharks (12-12) is placed seventh in East group. It's Akele's first season with the team. He has reliable stats this year: 13.7ppg, 7.3rpg, 1.6apg and 1.4spg in 24 games. Akele also holds two passports: DR Congolese and Italian. Despite his DR Congolese nationality, Akele previously played for the Italian U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the DR Congolese team.

   #8. Cedric Belemene-Dzabatou (198-F-96, currently plays in NCAA2) couldn't help the University of Tampa in their game against the Nova Southeastern University in the NCAA2. Belemene-Dzabatou cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 3 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 22 minutes. His team lost 82-95 in the NCAA2. This year Belemene-Dzabatou's overall stats are: 8.5ppg, 7.9rpg and 1.1bpg in 28 games.

   #9. Panagiotis Mayindombe (191-G-88, currently plays in United Kingdom) couldn't help Bristol Acadamy Flyers in their game against Scorchers in the British BBL.
