  follow us on Facebook Twitter

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

Manuchar Markoishvili
Manuchar Markoishvili
   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86, currently plays in Turkey). He led Galatasaray to a victory over the fifth-ranked Karsiyaka (18-6) crushing them 94-73 in the Turkish TBL last Saturday. Markoishvili was MVP of the game. He scored 19 points. Galatasaray Medical Park Istanbul (21-3) is placed first in the TBL. It was his team's 11th consecutive victory in a row. Markoishvili has relatively good stats this season: 10.3ppg, 2FGP: 51.7%, 3FGP: 52.4%(11-21). He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Jacob Pullen
Jacob Pullen
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Jacob Pullen (185-89, college: Kansas St., currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian SerieA. Pullen could not help Oknoplast BO (8-16) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Oknoplast BO lost 91-101 on the road to the one of league's weakest teams (#15) VL_Pesaro. Pullen was the top scorer with 34 points. He also added 3 steals in 35 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Pullen's second season in pro basketball. Pullen has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 20.7ppg, 2.3rpg, 1.7apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 58.3%(14-24), 3FGP: 47.1%(8-17) and FT: 62.5% in the three games he played so far. Pullen is a naturalized American. He is in the roster of the Georgian senior national team. Strangely Pullen has never played in Georgia.

   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international small forward Viktor Sanikidze (203-86, currently plays in Euroleague).

The fourth-placed Montepaschi Siena lost 69-77 in Barcelona to the leading Regal FC in the group F of Euroleague. It was Montepaschi Siena's fourth consecutive loss in a row. Sanikidze's team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Top 16. And that game will be critical. This year Sanikidze's overall stats are: 5.7ppg, 5.2rpg, 2FGP: 52.3%, 3FGP: 21.7% and FT: 57.5% in the 23 games. He is also a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Pireus (16-7) is placed third in group F. His team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Top 16. And now that game is very crucial.

The Second Stage already ended. It's Tskitishvili's first season with the team. Tskitishvili is currently fourth on the list of best rebounders and also on the list of best blockers (second place).

He scored 6 points and added 3 passes. The league leader Budivelnyk was defeated 80-69 in Donetsk by the lower-ranked BC Donetsk (#6). Tsintsadze's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. Tsintsadze's total stats this season are: 8.1ppg, 2.9rpg, 3.9apg and 1.4spg.

This year his other stats are: 2.3rpg and 2.7apg in the 25 games. Fisher is a naturalized American.
