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


Remi Dibo
Remi Dibo
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Remi Dibo (201-91, agency: Octagon Europe, college: W.Virginia, currently plays in France). He could not help SPO Rouen (16-16) in their last game. Despite Dibo's very good performance SPO Rouen lost 93-99 on the road to the lower-ranked (#13) Caen. He was the second best scorer with 19 points in 26 minutes on the court. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Dibo's first season with the team. Dibo has relatively good stats this year: 10.4ppg, 4.1rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 52.2%, 3FGP: 38.8% and FT: 80.6% in 27 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Ivorian and French. Despite Dibo played previously for the French U16 national team, he played also for the Ivorian national team in 2016.

Moussa Kone

   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Moussa Kone (203-93, college: Hofstra, currently plays in Spain). Kone led Navarra to a victory over the third-ranked HLA Alicante (21-9) 90-85 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) last Friday. He was MVP of the game. Kone scored 22 points and grabbed 9 rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. KIA Sakimovil Navarra de Pamplona (15-15) is placed eighth in the LEB Silver. This season Kone has relatively solid stats: 13.6ppg, 7.6rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 60.2%(197-327), 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 62.5%. He is another player who holds two passports: Ivorian and American. Kone played for the Ivorian national team in 2015.

Charles Abouo
Charles Abouo
   #3. The Ivorian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international swingman Charles Abouo (196-89, college: BYU, currently plays in France). He was the major contributor in a Provence Basket's victory against the closely-ranked Entente Orleans 45 (24-8) 78-68 in the French ProB (second division) on Tuesday night. Abouo scored 13 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 29 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. FOS Provence Basket (22-10) is placed fourth in the ProB. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Abouo has reliable stats this year: 13.2ppg, 4.4rpg, 2.6apg, 1.7spg, 2FGP: 51.3%, 3FGP: 37.2% and FT: 78.2% in 32 games. He has both American and Ivorian nationalities.
