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

Manuchar Markoishvili
Manuchar Markoishvili
   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Italy. Markoishvili could not help Cantu (0-2) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the sixth-placed Cantu was edged 78-76 on the road by the higher-ranked (#5) Panathinaikos in the group A of Euroleague. Markoishvili was the top scorer with 17 points. He also added 3 passes (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line) in 28 minutes on the court. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's Markoishvili's fourth year with the team. Markoishvili has relatively good stats this season: 15.0ppg, 2.5apg, 2FGP: 46.2%, 3FGP: 33.3% in the two games he played so far. He played for the Georgian senior national team years ago.

He scored only 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Maccabi Electra Tel-Aviv (2-0) is placed third in the Winner League. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. It's Shermadini's first season with the team. This year Shermadini averages: 8.0ppg, 4.0rpg. He played for the Georgian national team in 2012.

He also averaged so far 6.0rpg, 3.8apg and 2.3spg in the four games he played so far. Hosley is a naturalized American. Strangely he has never played in Georgia.
