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

Nikoloz Tskitishvili
Nikoloz Tskitishvili
   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Nikoloz Tskitishvili (212-83, agency: Regeneracom Sports, currently plays in Lebanon). He led Champville to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Anibal (2-16) crushing them 99-73 in the Lebanese Division A last Monday. Tskitishvili was MVP of the game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 30 points and getting 18 rebounds. Tskitishvili also added 4 assists and 4 blocks. Champville (12-6) is placed third in the Division A. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Tskitishvili is currently third on the list of best rebounders and also on the list of best blockers (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Tskitishvili averages: 18.8ppg, 11.6rpg, 2.4apg, 2.7bpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 58.0%(69-119), 3FGP: 40.4% and FT: 77.6%. He played for the Georgian senior national team two years ago.

   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB. Fisher could not help FIATC Joventut (11-12) in their last game. Despite his very good performance FIATC Joventut lost 86-92 at home to the much lower-ranked (#16) Baloncesto Fuenlabrada. Fisher was the top scorer with 25 points. He also added 5 assists in 32 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Fisher's second season in pro basketball. Fisher has relatively good stats this year: 13.5ppg, 2.3rpg, 2.9apg, 2FGP: 42.5%, 3FGP: 36.2% and FT: 82.7% in the 22 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Despite Fisher played previously for the USA university national team, he is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team. Strangely Fisher has never played in Georgia.

Zaza Pachulia
Zaza Pachulia
   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Zaza Pachulia (210-84, currently plays in NBA).
