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.


Nikoloz Tskitishvili
Nikoloz Tskitishvili
   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Nikoloz Tskitishvili (212-83, currently plays in Lebanon). He was the major contributor in Champville's victory against the eighth-ranked Hoops Club (5-17) crushing them 108-86 in the Lebanese Division A in Wednesday night's game. Tskitishvili recorded a double-double by scoring 29 points and getting 12 rebounds. He also added 5 assists. Champville (14-8) is placed third in the Division A. Tskitishvili's team will play only one more game in the Second Stage. And that game will be critical. It's Tskitishvili's first season with the team. Tskitishvili is ranked fourth on the list of the best rebounders in the league and also on the list of best blockers (second place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Tskitishvili averages: 17.5ppg, 11.5rpg, 2.1apg, 2.2bpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 54.5%, 3FGP: 36.6% and FT: 78.0%. He played for the Georgian senior national team two years ago.

Georgi Tsintsadze
Georgi Tsintsadze
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Georgi Tsintsadze (192-86, currently plays in Ukraine). Tsintsadze led Budivelnyk to a victory over one of league's weakest teams DniproAzot (11-27) 85-73 in the Ukrainian Superleague last Friday. He was MVP of the game. Tsintsadze scored 15 points and added 5 assists in 29 minutes. Budivelnyk Kyiv (27-9) is placed first in the Superleague. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This year Tsintsadze's overall stats are: 7.7ppg, 2.9rpg, 3.9apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 44.8%, 3FGP: 28.1% and FT: 76.1% in the 36 games he played so far. He is in the roster of the Georgian senior national team.

Giorgi Shermadini
Giorgi Shermadini
   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Giorgi Shermadini (216-89, currently plays in Euroleague). Shermadini contributed to a 1-point Olympiacos' victory against the closely-ranked Montepaschi Siena (7-4) 68-67 in the Euroleague on Thursday night. He scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (7-4) is placed third in group F. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Top 16. So now every game will be important. Shermadini's total stats this season are: 6.0ppg, 3.6rpg, 2FGP: 55.2%(16-29) and FT: 72.7%. He is also a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Viktor Sanikidze
Viktor Sanikidze
   #4. Small forward Viktor Sanikidze (203-86, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian SerieA could not help Montepaschi Siena (14-9) to beat Juvecaserta (10-13). Sanikidze scored 8 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 29 minutes. Montepaschi Siena lost 64-72 on the road to the lower-ranked (#10) Juvecaserta. It was Montepaschi Siena's third consecutive loss in a row. This year Sanikidze's total stats are: 7.5ppg, 5.9rpg and 1.1apg in the 23 games. He is also Georgian national team player.

Manuchar Markoishvili
Manuchar Markoishvili
   #5. International small forward Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86, currently plays in Turkey) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Mersin (19-5) crushing them 95-68 in the Turkish TBL last Saturday. Markoishvili recorded 9 points. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Galatasaray Medical Park Istanbul (19-5) is placed second in the TBL. Markoishvili has averaged so far 9.0ppg and 1.2apg. He plays currently for the Georgian national team.

Jacob Pullen
Jacob Pullen
   #6. Point guard Jacob Pullen (185-89, college: Kansas St., currently plays in Italy) was the main contributor in an Oknoplast BO's surprising victory against the seventh-ranked Trenkwalder RE (13-10) 82-74 in the Italian SerieA on Sunday night. Pullen was the best player in that game. He scored 22 points in 21 minutes. It was his first game for Oknoplast BO this season; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Pullen's second season in pro basketball. His team is placed 13th in the SerieA. They ended the series of three consecutive loses. Pullen is a naturalized American. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Georgian National Team roster. Strangely Pullen has never played in Georgia.

Beka Burjanadze
Beka Burjanadze
   #7. U20 international power forward Beka Burjanadze (203-94, currently plays in Spain) was not able to help Cajasol (9-16) in their game against G.Canaria 2014 (15-10) in the Spanish ACB. He recorded 5 points. Cajasol was badly defeated 66-49 in Las Palmas by the much higher-ranked G.Canaria 2014 (#6). This season Burjanadze averages only 1.8ppg. He is also Georgian U20 national team player.

Georges Mdivani
Georges Mdivani
   #8.

Mdivani scored 5 points in 20 minutes. Rueil lost 77-81 in Orchies to the leading Orchesien BC. Mdivani has averaged so far 7.1ppg and 5.7rpg in the 14 games. He used to play for the Georgian national team back in 2005.

Davit Maisuradze
Davit Maisuradze
   #9. Former U16 international power forward Davit Maisuradze (205-90, currently plays in Ukraine) contributed to Kirovograd's victory against the closely-ranked Koksokh-Stal (10-18) 80-75 in the Ukrainian Higher League (second division) on Sunday night. Maisuradze recorded 13 points. Kirovograd (12-18) is placed seventh in the Higher League. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Maisuradze has averaged so far 9.2ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.2apg. He used to play for the Georgian U16 national team seven years ago.


The list of other players, who all have Georgian passport but never been selected to any of Georgian national teams:

   #1. Will Thomas (203-PF-86, currently plays in EuroChallenge), who plays in Turkey could not help Karsiyaka (4-2) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the first-placed Karsiyaka was edged 76-74 at home by the second-ranked Paris-Levallois in the group I of EuroChallenge. Thomas had a double-double by scoring 25 points and getting 10 rebounds in 35 minutes. Thomas is currently sixth on the league's list of best rebounders with 7.7rpg. He also averaged so far 14.9ppg and 1.9apg in the 15 games he played so far. Thomas is a naturalized American. He used to play for Army Sport Klub Tbilisi in Georgian league.

   #2. Quinton Hosley (201-F/G-84, college: Fresno St., currently plays in Poland) was the major contributor in a Stelmet ZG's victory against the sixth-ranked Energa Czarni (13-11) 91-81 in the Polish TBL last Sunday. Hosley scored 18 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Stelmet Zielona Gora (16-8) is placed third in Places 1-6 group. It's Hosley's first season with the team. Hosley is ranked fourth on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of most steals (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Hosley averages: 15.9ppg, 5.9rpg, 2.8apg and 2.2spg. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Hosley has never played in Georgia.

   #3. Melvin Sanders (196-F/G-81, college: Oklahoma St., currently plays in EuroChallenge) is a teammate of previously mentioned Will Thomas. But that was another game of his team in EuroChallenge which we would like to mention. Sanders led his Turkish team Karsiyaka to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Paris-Levallois (4-2) 85-69. He had a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting 10 rebounds. Sanders also added 4 assists in 27 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group I. Pinar Karsiyaka SK Izmir (4-2) is placed first. This year Sanders averages: 5.7ppg, 6.7rpg and 3.3apg in the three games. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Sanders has never played in Georgia.
