POSTED BY:

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


Giorgi Shermadini
Giorgi Shermadini
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Giorgi Shermadini (217-89, currently plays in Spain). He could not help Andorra (10-9) in their last game. Despite Shermadini's very good performance Andorra lost 82-91 at home to the higher-ranked (#5) Baskonia. He was the top scorer with 25 points. Shermadini also added 8 rebounds (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!) in 25 minutes on the court. Shermadini has relatively good stats this year: 14.8ppg, 7.7rpg, 2FGP: 64.2%(97-151) and FT: 79.3% in 19 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Michael Dixon
Michael Dixon
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Michael Dixon (186-90, agency: Diamond Sports, college: Memphis, currently plays in Basketball Champions League). Dixon led his Greek team AEK Athens to a 1-point victory over the fourth-ranked Juventus (8-6) 78-77 in the Basketball Champions League last Wednesday. He was MVP of the game. Dixon recorded 15 points and grabbed 4 rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. AEK Athens (9-5) is placed second in group E. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Dixon has relatively solid stats: 15.0ppg, 2.6rpg, 2.5apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 55.6%(45-81), 3FGP: 44.8% and FT: 75.0%. He is a naturalized American. Dixon is in the roster of the Georgian senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Georgia.

Richard Hickman
Richard Hickman
   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international guard Richard Hickman (189-85, college: NC-Greensboro, currently plays in Italy). Hickman led Armani Milano to an easy victory against one of league's weakest teams Openjobmetis VA (5-13) 98-82 in the Italian Serie A on Sunday night. He scored 12 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 29 minutes. EA7 Emporio Armani Milano (15-3) is placed first in the Serie A. It's Hickman's first season with the team. This year Hickman averages: 8.8ppg, 2.4rpg, 2.8apg, 2FGP: 54.8%, 3FGP: 42.9% and FT: 71.9% in 13 games. He is a naturalized American. Hickman played for the Georgian national team three years ago. Apparently he has never played in Georgia.

Duda Sanadze
Duda Sanadze
   #4. Guard Duda Sanadze (196-92, college: San Diego, currently plays in Slovenia) led KK Primorska to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Portoroz (1-15) crushing them 94-61 in the Slovenian Liga Nova KBM in Friday night's game. Sanadze was the best player in that game. He scored 28 points (!!!) and grabbed 4 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line); not bad, considering it's only Sanadze's third season in pro basketball. Sixt Primorska (9-8) is placed seventh in the Liga Nova KBM. They ended the series of four consecutive loses. Sanadze has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 17.6ppg, 3.4rpg and 1.2apg. Sanadze is also Georgian national team player.

Corey Fisher
Corey Fisher
   #5. Former international point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova, currently plays in EuroCup) was the major contributor in a 2-point Lietuvos rytas' victory against the closely-ranked Zenit (3-3) 86-84 in the Eurocup last Wednesday. He scored 17 points and added 4 passes (went 6 for 6 at the free throw line) in 22 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (3-3) is placed third in the Eurocup. The Second Stage already ended in the Eurocup. Fisher has reliable stats this year: 11.9ppg, 1.4rpg and 3.4apg in 14 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. Interesting that Fisher has never played in Georgia.

Jacob Pullen
Jacob Pullen
   #6. Point guard Jacob Pullen (184-89, college: Kansas St., currently plays in EuroCup) contributed to Khimky's victory against the closely-ranked Lietkabelis (2-4) 89-77 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. He scored 12 points, made 8 passes and 3 steals. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. BC Khimky Moscow Region (4-2) is placed second in the Eurocup. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Eurocup Second Stage. And that game will be critical. Pullen's stats this season are: 10.2ppg, 2.7apg and 1.1spg. He is a naturalized American. Pullen is a former international player as he played for the Georgian senior team two years ago. However he has never played in Georgia.

Taurean Green
Taurean Green
   #7. Former international point guard Taurean Green (183-85, college: Florida, currently plays in Israel) was the main contributor in a 1-point Bnei Hasharon's victory against the league outsider Maccabi K/G (3-15) 80-79 in the Israeli Winner League in Monday night's game. Green was the top player that evening. He scored 19 points, made 5 passes and 3 steals in 25 minutes. Bnei Hertzeliyya (11-6) is placed fourth in the Winner League. Green's stats this year are: 13.6ppg, 2.7rpg, 4.4apg and 1.6spg in 17 games. He is a naturalized American. Green used to play for the Georgian national team seven years ago.

Marquez Haynes
Marquez Haynes
   #8. Point guard Marquez Haynes (191-86, college: Texas Arlington, currently plays in Basketball Champions League) was not able to help Umana Venezia in their game against Ventspils (7-7) in the Basketball Champions League. Haynes recorded 8 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. The third-placed Umana Venezia (9-5) was defeated 74-67 on the road by the lower-ranked Ventspils (#5) in the group B of Basketball Champions League. Haynes' overall stats this season are: 8.3ppg, 1.6rpg, 4.4apg and 1.1spg. He is a naturalized American. Haynes used to play for the Georgian national team back in 2011.

Beka Burjanadze
Beka Burjanadze
   #9. International power forward Beka Burjanadze (201-94, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Giorgi Shermadini and both played together in the last Spanish Liga Endesa game. Burjanadze was not able to secure a victory for Andorra (10-9) in their last game. Despite his good performance Andorra lost 82-91 on their home court in Andorra to the higher-ranked (#5) Baskonia. Burjanadze scored 11 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 22 minutes. Burjanadze averaged so far 10.2ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.1apg in 19 games. He is also in the roster of the Georgian national team.

Giorgi Sharabidze
Giorgi Sharabidze
   #10. Center Giorgi Sharabidze (210-90, agency: Mansfield and Associates, currently plays in Balkan League) couldn't help Feni Industries (1-3) in their game against Beroe (4-0) in the Balkan League, despite his very good performance last Tuesday. Sharabidze had a double-double by scoring 14 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 4 assists in 21 minutes. But Feni Industries was edged 85-84 on their home court in Kavadarci by the higher-ranked (#5) Beroe. There are only two games left until the end of the Balkan League Second Stage. So now every game is very crucial. Sharabidze averaged so far 12.2ppg, 6.4rpg and 1.5apg in 10 games. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Georgian National Team roster.

   #11. U18 international power forward Goga Bitadze (210-99, currently plays in Serbia) contributed to Smederevo's victory against the closely-ranked OKK Beograd 85-71 in the Serbian KLS in Friday night's game. He recorded 16 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in only a mere 14 minutes. This year Bitadze's overall stats are: 9.6ppg and 4.1rpg in 11 games. He plays currently for the Georgian U18 national team.

   #12. Former U20 international center Shota Gelazonia (205-94, currently plays in Spain) contributed to an easy victory against the tenth-ranked Zornotza crushing them 99-62 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) last Saturday. Gelazonia recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 15 rebounds. Gelazonia's total stats this season are: 9.9ppg and 5.0rpg.
