ANTHONY RANDOLPH

Here is the weekly review of the top performing Slovenian players, who play currently abroad.
   #1. This week’s number one is an international power forward Anthony Randolph (211-89, college: LSU, currently plays in Euroleague). He led his Spanish team Real Madrid to a victory over the eighth-ranked Bayern Muenchen (7-7) 82-72 in the Euroleague in Friday night’s game.

   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Klemen Prepelic (191-92, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Anthony Randolph. But that was another game of his team in Spanish Liga Endesa which we would like to mention.
Prepelic. He could not help Real Madrid (9-3) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Prepelic’s good performance Real Madrid was defeated 84-71 on the road by the one of league’s weakest teams Leche Rio Breogan (#17).
