NIANTA DIARRA
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Malians who are currently playing abroad.


Nianta Diarra
Nianta Diarra
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Nianta Diarra (203-93, currently plays in France). He managed to help Boulazac Basket Dordogne in a victory against the 12th-ranked Monaco (0-3) 77-61 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. Diarra scored only 4 points in 16 minutes on the court. Boulazac Basket Dordogne (2-1) is placed third in the ProA. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Diarra averages: 5.0ppg, 1.7rpg in three games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Mali and French. Diarra is currently a member of the Mali senior national team.

Namory Boundy
Namory Boundy
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Namory Boundy (202-89, currently plays in France). He could not help GET Vosges (0-3) in their last game. Despite Boundy's very good performance the 13th-placed GET Vosges (0-3) lost 79-85 on the road to the much higher-ranked (#4) Charleville-Mezieres in the Group A. He was the top scorer with 21 points. Boundy also added 7 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 36 minutes. So far GET Vosges lost all three games in the Regular Season. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Boundy has relatively good stats this year: 11.0ppg, 3.0rpg, 2.7apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 47.4%, 3FGP: 29.4% in three games. He is another player who holds two passports: Mali and French. Boundy played for the Mali national team in 2015.

Sourata Cisse
Sourata Cisse
   #3. The Mali player who performed third best last week abroad was an international swingman Sourata Cisse (196-86, currently plays in France). He was not able to help Brissac Anjou (1-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Cisse's very good performance Brissac Anjou (#9) was defeated 69-61 in Bordeaux by the leading JSA Bordeaux in the Group B. He was the top scorer with 15 points. Cisse also added 3 assists (went 5 for 5 at the free throw line). But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Cisse has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 20.0ppg, 2.3rpg, 3.0apg, 2FGP: 52.2% and FT: 92.3%. Similarly like Boundy and Diarra above Cisse has both Mali and French nationalities. Despite he played previously for the French U20 national team, Cisse is currently a member of the Mali senior national team.

Ibrahim Saounera
Ibrahim Saounera
   #4. Point guard Ibrahim Saounera (179-87, currently plays in France) was not able to secure a victory for Lorient (1-2) in their last game. Despite his good performance Lorient (#10) lost 67-75 in La Charite to the higher-ranked (#6) La Charite in the Group B. Saounera scored 10 points and added 5 assists in 34 minutes. This year Saounera has relatively solid stats: 13.0ppg, 2.0rpg, 4.7apg and 2.3spg in three games. Similarly like three previous players above, he also holds two passports: Mali and French.

An experienced former international guard Ludovic Chelle (183-83, currently plays in France) couldn't help Saint Vallier (1-2) in their game against Souffelweyersheim (3-0) in the French NM1 (third division). He did not beat the league record on Saturday evening. Chelle scored only 2 points. Saint Vallier (#10) was defeated 69-59 on the opponent's court by the much higher-ranked Souffelweyersheim (#3) in the Group A. Chelle's overall stats this season are: 5.3ppg and 2.0rpg.

Samake couldn't help Lorient (1-2) in their game against La Charite (2-1). He scored only 4 points in 7 minutes on the court. Lorient (#10) lost 67-75 in La Charite to the higher-ranked (#6) La Charite in the Group B. This year Samake's overall stats are: 5.3ppg and 6.0rpg in three games.

Sy couldn't help Brissac Anjou (1-2) in their game against JSA Bordeaux (3-0). He cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Sy scored only 2 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Brissac Anjou (#9) was defeated 69-61 in Bordeaux by the leading JSA Bordeaux in the Group B. Sy's total stats this season are: 3.0ppg and 4.7rpg. He is also Mali national team player.

Shooting guard Mahamadou Drame (188-86, currently plays in France) contributed to a Feurs EF's victory against the fifth-ranked Besancon (2-1) 79-74 in the French NM1 (third division) on Saturday night. Drame scored only 4 points in 15 minutes. Feurs Enfants du Forez (2-1) is placed eighth in Group A. This year Drame's total stats are: 8.7ppg, 2.0rpg and 1.3apg in three games. He plays currently for the Mali national team.


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

   #1. Nouhoum Bocoum (207-F/C-92, college: Arkansas St., currently plays in Spain) could not help Aridane (0-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his very good performance the 12th-placed Aridane (0-2) was defeated 85-78 at home by the higher-ranked Liceo Frances (#6) in the Group B. Bocoum recorded a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 5 assists and 3 blocks. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Bocoum's first year with the team. Bocoum has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.5ppg, 9.0rpg, 2.5apg and 1.5bpg. Bocoum has a dual citizenship: Mali and American.
