Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Georgians who are currently playing abroad.


Viktor Sanikidze
Viktor Sanikidze
   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Viktor Sanikidze (203-86, currently plays in Euroleague). Sanikidze led his Italian team Montepaschi Siena to a victory over the eighth-ranked Besiktas (0-5) 63-57 in the Euroleague last Friday. He was MVP of the game. Sanikidze scored 14 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Montepaschi Siena (5-0) is placed first in group F. So far his team won all five games in the Top 16. This season Sanikidze averages: 6.5ppg, 6.1rpg, 2FGP: 50.8%, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 67.7%. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Giorgi Shermadini
Giorgi Shermadini
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Giorgi Shermadini (216-89, currently plays in Euroleague). Shermadini contributed to a 1-point Olympiacos' victory against the closely-ranked Maccabi T-A (1-4) 78-77 in the Euroleague on Thursday night. He scored 9 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 20 minutes. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (2-3) is placed fifth in group F. This year Shermadini's overall stats are: 8.0ppg, 6.3rpg, 2.0bpg, 2FGP: 64.3% and FT: 75.0% in the three games he played so far. He is in the roster of the Georgian senior national team.

Nikoloz Tskitishvili
Nikoloz Tskitishvili
   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Nikoloz Tskitishvili (212-83, currently plays in Lebanon). Tskitishvili was the major contributor in Champville's victory against the seventh-ranked Bejjeh (4-9) crushing them 107-85 in the Lebanese Division A in Wednesday night's game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 11 rebounds. Tskitishvili also added 5 blocks. Champville (9-4) is placed third in the Division A. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Tskitishvili is currently sixth on the list of best rebounders and also on the list of best blockers (second place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Tskitishvili averages: 18.4ppg, 10.9rpg, 2.1apg, 3.0bpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 61.4%(43-70), 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 78.1%. He played for the Georgian national team two years ago.

Georgi Tsintsadze
Georgi Tsintsadze
   #4. Point guard Georgi Tsintsadze (192-86, currently plays in Eurocup) contributed to a 2-point Budivelnyk's victory against the third-ranked Buducnost (2-2) 77-75 in the Eurocup last Wednesday. Tsintsadze recorded 12 points and added 7 passes in 32 minutes. Budivelnyk Kyiv (3-1) is placed first in group I. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game is very crucial. It's Tsintsadze's first season with the team. He has relatively good stats this year: 10.2ppg, 2.5rpg, 3.7apg and 1.3spg in the 10 games. Tsintsadze is also Georgian national team player.

Jacob Pullen
Jacob Pullen
   #5. International point guard Jacob Pullen (185-89, college: Kansas St., currently plays in Israel), who plays in the Israeli Winner League could not help Hapoel J-M (8-7) in their last game on Monday. Despite his good performance Hapoel J-M was badly defeated 95-78 on the road by the leading Maccabi Ashdod. Pullen was the second best scorer with 14 points. He also added 4 assists. Pullen is currently fourth on the list of best passers. He has very reliable stats this season: 13.6ppg, 1.3rpg, 4.5apg and 1.1spg. Pullen is a naturalized American. He plays currently for the Georgian national team. Strangely Pullen has never played in Georgia.

Manuchar Markoishvili
Manuchar Markoishvili
   #6. Small forward Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86, currently plays in Eurocup) was not able to help Galatasaray (2-2) in their game against ratiopharm Ulm (2-2) in the Eurocup. He recorded 8 points in 21 minutes. It was his first game for Galatasaray this season. The third-placed Galatasaray was crushed 91-70 in Ulm by the second-ranked ratiopharm in the group L of Eurocup. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be important. Markoishvili is an international player who is currently on the senior Georgian National Team roster.

Corey Fisher
Corey Fisher
   #7. International point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova, currently plays in Spain) contributed to a FIATC Joventut's victory against the closely-ranked Unicaja Malaga (8-11) 79-71 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. He recorded 8 points and added 3 assists. FIATC Joventut Badalona (10-9) is placed eighth in the ACB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Fisher has relatively solid stats: 13.5ppg, 2.5rpg and 2.9apg. He is a naturalized American. Despite Fisher played previously for the USA university national team, he is currently in the Georgian national team roster. Apparently Fisher has never played in Georgia.

Zaza Pachulia
Zaza Pachulia
   #8. Center Zaza Pachulia (210-84, currently plays in NBA) was not able to secure a victory for the Atlanta Hawks (25-19) in their game against the New York Knicks (27-15) in the NBA. He cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. Pachulia recorded only 2 points in 17 minutes. The Atlanta Hawks were edged 106-104 in New York by the Knicks. They ended the series of three consecutive victories. This year Pachulia's total stats are: 6.1ppg, 6.5rpg and 1.5apg in the 43 games. He plays currently for the Georgian national team.

Nika Metreveli
Nika Metreveli
   #9. International power forward Nika Metreveli (211-91, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in Italy) helped Omegna win their game against the 11th-ranked Liomatic Viola Reggio Calabria (9-11) 77-73 in the Italian Nazionale A (third division) last Sunday. He scored 12 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 23 minutes. Paffoni Omegna (11-8) is placed sixth in the Nazionale A. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Metreveli has reliable stats this year: 11.8ppg and 10.3rpg in the four games. He is also in the roster of the Georgian national team.

Beka Burjanadze
Beka Burjanadze
   #10. Power forward Beka Burjanadze (203-94, currently plays in Eurocup) couldn't help Cajasol (0-4) in their game against Lokomotiv (4-0) in the Eurocup. Burjanadze cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Cajasol (#4) was defeated 87-80 at home by the leading Lokomotiv in the group K of Eurocup. So far Cajasol lost all four games in the Top 16. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. Burjanadze has averaged so far 1.1ppg and 1.6rpg. He is U20 international player who is currently on the Georgian National Team roster.

   #11. Former international center Georges Mdivani (204-85, agency: Promotex, currently plays in France) helped Rueil win their game against the closely-ranked CFBB 78-61 in the French NM1 (third division) in Saturday night's game. Mdivani scored 7 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 22 minutes. Mdivani has averaged so far 7.7ppg and 5.7rpg in the six games. He used to play for the Georgian national team eight years ago.


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

   #1. Will Thomas (203-PF-86, currently plays in EuroChallenge) led his Turkish team Karsiyaka to a victory against the closely-ranked Ventspils (1-2) 86-81 in the EuroChallenge in Tuesday night's game. He had a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 11 rebounds. Thomas also added 4 assists and 2 blocks in 38 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group I. Pinar Karsiyaka SK Izmir (3-0) is placed first. So far his team won all three games in the Top 16. There are only three 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. He has relatively good stats this year: 11.3ppg, 6.0rpg and 2.0apg in the nine games he played so far. Thomas is a naturalized American. He used to play for Army Sport Klub Tbilisi in Georgian league.

   #2. Quinton Hosley (201-F/G-84, college: Fresno St., currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Poland could not help Stelmet ZG (1-3) to beat Spartak St.Petersburg (3-1). Hosley cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 3 points and added 4 assists. Stelmet ZG (#3) was badly defeated 89-69 at home by the second-ranked Spartak St.Petersburg in the group K of Eurocup. It was Stelmet ZG's third consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. Hosley has reliable stats this season: 12.9ppg, 4.6rpg, 3.4apg and 1.6spg. He is a naturalized American. Interesting that Hosley has never played in Georgia.
