Here is the weekly review of the top performing British players, who play currently abroad.


Luol Deng
Luol Deng
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Luol Deng (206-85, agency: Interperformances, college: Duke, currently plays in NBA). He led Chicago Bulls to a victory over the Miami Heat (58-16) 101-97 in the NBA in Wednesday night's game. Deng was MVP of the game. He scored 28 points (!!!), grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 5 assists in 44 minutes on the court. The Chicago Bulls have 40-33 record this season. It's Deng's ninth year with the team. Deng has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 16.6ppg, 6.5rpg, 2.8apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 45.3%, 3FGP: 31.9% and FT: 80.9% in the 68 games he played so far. Deng has a dual citizenship: British and Sudanese. He is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Dante Cunningham
Dante Cunningham
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Dante Cunningham (203-87, college: Villanova, currently plays in NBA). Cunningham was the major contributor in a Minnesota Timberwolves' victory against the Boston Celtics (38-36) 110-100 in the NBA last Monday. He recorded 19 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. The Minnesota Timberwolves have 27-46 record this season. It's Cunningham's first year with the team. Cunningham has relatively good stats this year: 8.5ppg, 5.1rpg, 2FGP: 46.7% and FT: 62.2%. He is a naturalized American. Cunningham played for the British national team in 2008. Strangely he has never played in United Kingdom.

Ben Gordon
Ben Gordon
   #3. The British player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Ben Gordon (188-83, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. Gordon could not help the Charlotte Bobcats (17-57) in their last game. Despite his good performance the Charlotte Bobcats were crushed 131-102 on the road by the Milwaukee Bucks. Gordon recorded 14 points in 20 minutes. It was Bobcats' third consecutive loss in a row. It's Gordon's first season with the team. He has very impressive stats this year: 11.7ppg, 1.8rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 42.3%, 3FGP: 39.6% and FT: 84.7% in the 67 games. Gordon is a naturalized American. He is also a member of the British senior national team. Apparently Gordon has never played in United Kingdom.

Daniel Clark
Daniel Clark
   #4. Power forward Daniel Clark (210-88, currently plays in Spain) contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider Assignia Manresa (5-22) 90-75 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. He scored 19 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Asefa Estudiantes Madrid (13-14) is placed 11th in the ACB. Clark has been at the team for four years.

Larkai scored 23 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 38 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group Western. Ryukyu Golden Kings Okinawa (35-9) is placed first. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. This year Larkai's overall stats are: 8.9ppg and 5.5rpg in the 44 games. He used to play for the British national team five years ago.

Laurence Ekperigin
Laurence Ekperigin
   #6. Forward Laurence Ekperigin (201-88, college: Le Moyne, currently plays in Italy) was not able to help FCM Ferentino (8-14) in their game against Aget Service IM (8-15) in the Italian Lega2 (second division). Despite his very good performance on Thursday night Ekperigin recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 13 rebounds. Ekperigin is currently second on the league's list of best rebounders. He has very reliable stats this season: 14.0ppg, 10.0rpg and 1.1spg. Ekperigin is a naturalized American. He is a former international player as he played for the British senior team two years ago. Interesting that Ekperigin has never played in United Kingdom.

International guard Mike Lenzly (189-81, college: Wofford, currently plays in Germany) was not able to secure a victory for s Oliver Baskets (15-14) in their game against Deutsche Bank Skyliners (12-17) in the German BBL, despite his very good performance in Saturday night's game. He was the top scorer with 13 points. Lenzly also added 3 assists in 28 minutes. But s Oliver Baskets was edged 60-57 in Frankfurt by the lower-ranked (#14) Deutsche Bank Skyliners.

   #8. Forward Joel Freeland (208-87, currently plays in NBA) couldn't help the Portland Trail Blazers (33-41) in their game against the Brooklyn Nets (42-31) in the NBA. Freeland cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and made 2 blocks. The Portland Trail Blazers were badly defeated 111-93 in Brooklyn by the Nets. It was Trail Blazers' fifth consecutive loss in a row. Freeland has averaged so far 2.3ppg and 2.2rpg.

Tafari Toney
Tafari Toney
   #10. Power forward Tafari Toney (203-86, currently plays in France) couldn't help Charleville-Mezieres (9-15) in their game against Olympique Antibes (17-12) in the French ProB (second division). Despite his very good performance on Friday night Toney was the top scorer with 19 points. He also added 8 rebounds and made 2 blocks. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This season Toney has relatively solid stats: 12.5ppg, 6.8rpg, 1.6apg and 1.4spg. He is a naturalized American. Toney is a former international player as four years ago he still played for the British senior national team. He used to play for Newcastle Eagles in British league.

   #11. International forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu (206-83, agency: SportsTalent, college: G.Washington, currently plays in Spain) couldn't help Cajasol in their game against Real Madrid in the Spanish ACB. Mensah-Bonsu scored 5 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 20 minutes. His team lost 74-84. Mensah-Bonsu has averaged so far 5.5ppg and 3.8rpg in the four games. He plays currently for the British national team.

   #12. International center Eric Boateng (208-85, also represented by Interperformances, college: Arizona St., currently plays in Germany) couldn't help New Yorker Phantoms in their game against Phoenix Hagen in the German BBL. He cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Boateng scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. His team was badly defeated by 19 points 102-83. Boateng has averaged so far 7.7ppg and 5.6rpg. He is also in the roster of the British national team.

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

   #1. Daryl Corletto (193-G-81, currently plays in Australia) was the major contributor in a New Zealand Breakers' victory against the closely-ranked Kings (12-17) 81-64 in the Australian NBL on Thursday night. Corletto recorded 12 points in a mere 19 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. New Zealand Breakers (25-4) are placed first in the NBL. It was his team's 16th consecutive victory in a row. Corletto has averaged so far 9.2ppg and 1.1rpg in the 30 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: British and Australian. Despite Corletto's British passport, he previously played for the Australian U22 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the British team.

He was the best player in that game. Guede scored 15 points in 21 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. BG Goettingen (22-8) is placed second in the ProA. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Guede has averaged so far 10.0ppg, 3.0rpg and 1.5apg in the 29 games.

   #5. Experienced Sullivan Phillips (198-G/F-79, college: Wash.Adventist, currently plays in Germany) is a teammate of previously mentioned Paul Guede.
