CHEIKH MBODJ
Here is the weekly review of the top performing Senegalese players, who play currently abroad.


Cheikh Mbodj
Cheikh Mbodj
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Cheikh Mbodj (208-87, agency: Octagon Europe, college: Cincinnati, currently plays in Poland). He led Twarde Pierniki to a victory against the league leader Stelmet Enea BC (7-2) 93-89 in the Polish EBL in Thursday night's game. Mbodj scored 14 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 30 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Polski Cukier Torun (7-2) is placed second in the EBL. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Mbodj has relatively good stats this year: 10.8ppg, 6.9rpg, 1.1apg, 2.2bpg, 2FGP: 56.5%(39-69) and FT: 54.3% in nine games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Senegalese senior national team.

   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international power forward Babacar Toure (205-85, currently plays in Switzerland). Toure led Fribourg to a victory over the ninth-ranked Swiss Central (3-7) 94-76 in the Swiss SBL last Tuesday. He was MVP of the game. Toure recorded a double-double by scoring 28 points and getting 13 rebounds. He also added 2 blocks. Fribourg Olympic (7-1) is placed first in the SBL.
