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


Giorgi Shermadini
Giorgi Shermadini
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Giorgi Shermadini (216-89, currently plays in Greece). He was the major contributor in Olympiacos' victory against one of league's weakest teams KAOD (5-12) 91-81 in the Greek A1 last Monday. Shermadini scored 11 points (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line). Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (16-1) is placed first in the A1. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Shermadini averages: 5.0ppg, 2.7rpg, 2FGP: 56.3%(9-16) and FT: 92.3%. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Despite his good performance FIATC Joventut lost 70-81 at home to the higher-ranked (#4) Gescrap BB. Fisher was the second best scorer with 14 points in 25 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. Fisher's stats this year are: 13.3ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.8apg in the 20 games. 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.

   #1. Will Thomas (203-PF-86, currently plays in EuroChallenge), who plays in Turkey could not help Karsiyaka (4-1) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the first-placed Karsiyaka lost 69-77 on the road to the lower-ranked (#4) Gaz Metan in the group I of EuroChallenge. Thomas had a double-double by scoring 28 points and getting 14 rebounds in 38 minutes. His team will play only one more game in the EuroChallenge Top 16. And that game will be critical. It's Thomas' first season with the team. Thomas has relatively good stats this year: 12.7ppg, 7.2rpg and 2.0apg in the 11 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Thomas used to play for Army Sport Klub Tbilisi in Georgian league.

Sanders was the top player that evening. He recorded 18 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 31 minutes. Sigma Barcellona (13-5) is placed first in the Lega2. Sanders has averaged so far 9.7ppg, 5.8rpg and 1.5apg in the 15 games. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Sanders has never played in Georgia.

   #3. Quinton Hosley (201-F/G-84, college: Fresno St., currently plays in Poland) was not able to help Stelmet ZG (14-6) in their game against Polpharma (9-11) in the Polish TBL. He scored 6 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Stelmet ZG was defeated 102-88 in Starogard by the lower-ranked Polpharma (#8). It was Stelmet ZG's first loss after five consecutive victories. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Hosley is currently fifth on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of most steals (second place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Hosley averages: 15.6ppg, 5.5rpg, 2.7apg and 2.1spg. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Hosley has never played in Georgia.
