  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.

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

   #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.

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.

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.

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.
