   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86, currently plays in Turkey). He led Galatasaray to a victory over the league outsider Olin Edirne (4-15) 69-59 in the Turkish TBL last Saturday. Markoishvili was MVP of the game. He recorded 21 points. Galatasaray Medical Park Istanbul (17-3) is placed second in the TBL. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. This season Markoishvili averages: 8.3ppg. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Viktor Sanikidze
Viktor Sanikidze
   #2. Second place goes to an international small forward Viktor Sanikidze (203-86, currently plays in Italy). Sanikidze was the major contributor in a Montepaschi Siena's victory against the league outsider Angelico Biella (4-16) crushing them 98-75 in the Italian SerieA on Sunday night. He scored 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in a mere 15 minutes. Montepaschi Siena (14-6) is placed third in the SerieA. It's Sanikidze's first season with the team. This year Sanikidze's overall stats are: 7.4ppg, 5.9rpg, 1.2apg, 2FGP: 59.4%(41-69), 3FGP: 45.8%(11-24) and FT: 67.3% in the 20 games he played so far. He is in the roster of the Georgian senior national team.

Georgi Tsintsadze

   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Georgi Tsintsadze (192-86, currently plays in Eurocup). Tsintsadze contributed to Budivelnyk's victory against the fourth-ranked Triumph Lyubertsy (2-4) 88-77 in the Eurocup in Wednesday night's game. He scored 14 points and added 6 passes. Budivelnyk Kyiv (4-2) is placed first in group I. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical.

   #5. Former international power forward Nikoloz Tskitishvili (212-83, agency: Regeneracom Sports, currently plays in Lebanon), who plays in the Lebanese Division A could not help Champville (11-5) in their last game. Despite his good performance Champville lost 69-75 at home to the leading Sagesse. Tskitishvili had a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting the same number of rebounds. He also added 5 assists and 2 blocks in 40 minutes. They ended the series of eight consecutive victories. Tskitishvili's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. Tskitishvili is ranked sixth on the list of the best rebounders in the league and also on the list of best blockers (second place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Tskitishvili averages: 18.6ppg, 11.2rpg, 2.2apg, 2.7bpg and 1.1spg in the 11 games. He used to play for the Georgian national team two years ago.

Shermadini scored only 3 points. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (5-3) is placed third in group F. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Shermadini has averaged so far 6.5ppg, 4.0rpg and 1.2bpg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Georgian National Team roster.

Jacob Pullen
Jacob Pullen
   #7.

Pullen scored 7 points and added 3 passes in 23 minutes. Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem (11-7) is placed second in the Winner League. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This year Pullen has relatively solid stats: 13.0ppg, 1.5rpg, 4.1apg and 1.1spg in the 18 games. He is a naturalized American. Pullen is also Georgian national team player. Strangely he has never played in Georgia.

   #2. Guillermo Diaz (188-G-85, college: Miami, FL, currently plays in Liga Americas), who plays in Puerto Rico could not help Capitanes (2-1) in their last game on Friday. Despite Diaz's very good performance the first-placed Capitanes was defeated 96-92 on the road by the second-ranked Pioneros in the group C of Liga Americas. He was the top scorer with 18 points. Diaz also added 3 assists. The Regular Season already ended in the Liga Americas. This season Diaz has relatively solid stats: 14.0ppg, 2.3rpg, 4.3apg and 1.3spg.

   #3. Quinton Hosley (201-F/G-84, college: Fresno St., currently plays in Eurocup) managed to help Stelmet Zielona Gora to win against the leader Lokomotiv (5-1) 94-88 in the Eurocup in Wednesday night's game. Hosley scored only 4 points. Stelmet Zielona Gora (3-3) is placed third in group K. The Top 16 already ended in the Eurocup. Hosley has reliable stats this season: 12.0ppg, 4.1rpg, 3.3apg and 1.5spg. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Hosley has never played in Georgia.

   #4. Melvin Sanders (196-F/G-81, college: Oklahoma St., currently plays in Italy) contributed to a Sigma Barcellona's victory against the 13th-ranked FCM Ferentino (7-12) 79-71 in the Italian Lega2 (second division) last Sunday.
