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


Kostas Vasiliadis
Kostas Vasiliadis
   #1. This week's number one is an international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84, agency: FCM, currently plays in Eurocup). He was the major contributor in a Gescrap BB's victory against the leader Budivelnyk (4-2) 93-83 in the Eurocup in Wednesday night's game. Vasiliadis recorded 20 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 28 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group J. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (4-2) is placed first. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Vasiliadis has relatively good stats this year: 14.4ppg, 3.1rpg, 1.5apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 53.8%, 3FGP: 36.8% and FT: 85.7% in the 14 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Greek senior national team.

Nick Calathes
Nick Calathes
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida, currently plays in VTB United League), who plays in Russia. Calathes could not help Lokomotiv (12-6) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance the third-placed Lokomotiv was edged 98-95 at home by the lower-ranked VEF Riga (#4) in the group B of VTB United League. Calathes was the second best scorer with 18 points. He also added 9 passes. There are only two games left until the end of the VTB United League Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Calathes' first season with the team. Calathes is ranked eighth on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best passers (fourth place). He has very reliable stats this season: 15.0ppg, 4.6rpg, 5.8apg, 1.7spg, 2FGP: 56.7%(80-141), 3FGP: 41.4% and FT: 61.1%. Calathes is a naturalized American. He is in the roster of the Greek senior national team. Calathes used to play for 3-year contract with Panathinaikos Athens in Greek league.

Loukas Mavrokefalidis
Loukas Mavrokefalidis
   #3. The Greek player who performed third best last week abroad was former international center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84, currently plays in VTB United League), who plays in Russia. He was not able to help Spartak St.Petersburg (12-6) in their last game. Despite Mavrokefalidis' very good performance Spartak St.Petersburg (#4) lost 80-88 on the road to the lower-ranked (#6) BC Donetsk in the group A of VTB United League. He was the top scorer with 18 points. Mavrokefalidis also added 6 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 34 minutes. There are only two games left until the end of the VTB United League Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This year Mavrokefalidis has relatively solid stats: 14.9ppg, 6.2rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 51.6%, 3FGP: 47.1%(16-34) and FT: 83.6% in the 18 games.

Koufos recorded 13 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets have a solid 49-24 record this season. Koufos has reliable stats this year: 8.3ppg, 6.9rpg and 1.4bpg. He is a naturalized American. Koufos used to play for the Greek national team back in 2011. Strangely he has never played in Greece.

Haritopoulos used to play for the Greek national team eight years ago.

Papaloukas scored only 3 points and added 6 passes in 16 minutes. CSKA Moscow (14-2) is placed first in the PBL. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season.
