Tskitishvili belongs to league's best rebounders (ranked #4) and also on the list of best blockers (second place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Tskitishvili averages: 19.9ppg, 11.9rpg, 2.0apg, 3.1bpg and 1.1spg. He used to play for the Georgian national team back in 2011.

Pullen scored 17 points (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line) in 34 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem (8-6) is placed fourth in the Winner League. Pullen is currently fifth on the list of best passers with 4.5apg. He also averaged so far 13.6ppg, 1.4rpg and 1.1spg in the 14 games. Pullen is a naturalized American. He plays currently for the Georgian national team. Strangely Pullen has never played in Georgia.

Manuchar Markoishvili
   #6. Small forward Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian SerieA was not able to help Cantu (11-5) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his good performance Cantu was defeated 83-79 on the road by the lower-ranked Umana Venezia (#7). Markoishvili recorded 12 points. Markoishvili is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fourth year in Cantu's roster. He has relatively good stats this season: 13.2ppg, 3.5rpg and 2.1apg. Markoishvili is an international player who is currently on the senior Georgian National Team roster.

He scored 9 points and added 3 passes in 31 minutes. Budivelnyk Kyiv (2-1) is placed first in group I. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. Tsintsadze has averaged so far 10.0ppg, 2.6rpg, 3.3apg and 1.2spg in the nine games. He is also Georgian national team player.

Corey Fisher
Corey Fisher

He has very reliable stats this season: 13.8ppg, 2.6rpg and 2.9apg. Fisher is a naturalized American. He plays currently for the Georgian national team.

Beka Burjanadze
Beka Burjanadze
   #9. U20 international power forward Beka Burjanadze (203-94, currently plays in Eurocup) was not able to secure a victory for Cajasol (0-3) in their game against Lokomotiv (3-0) in the Eurocup. He cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. Burjanadze scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 8 minutes on the court. Cajasol (#4) lost 80-87 on their home court in Sevilla to the leading Lokomotiv in the group K of Eurocup. So far Cajasol lost all three games in the Top 16. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game is very crucial. Burjanadze has averaged so far 1.0ppg and 1.7rpg in the six games. He is also in the roster of the Georgian U20 national team.

Nika Metreveli
Nika Metreveli
   #10.

There are only four games left until the end of the EuroChallenge Top 16. So now every game will be critical. It's Thomas' first season with the team. Thomas has relatively good stats this year: 11.5ppg, 6.0rpg and 2.1apg. He is a naturalized American. Thomas used to play for Army Sport Klub Tbilisi in Georgian league.
