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


Michael Dixon
Michael Dixon
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Michael Dixon (186-90, agency: Diamond Sports, college: Memphis, currently plays in Basketball Champions League). He was the major contributor in an AEK Athens' victory against the fourth-ranked Juventus (8-6) crushing them 75-54 in the Basketball Champions League in Tuesday night's game. Dixon scored 14 points and added 5 passes in 24 minutes on the court; 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. It's Dixon's first year with the team. Dixon has relatively good stats this season: 14.9ppg, 2.6rpg, 2.7apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 56.3%(49-87), 3FGP: 44.6% and FT: 75.0% in 16 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Dixon is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Georgia.

Taurean Green
Taurean Green
   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Taurean Green (183-85, college: Florida, currently plays in Israel). Green led Bnei Hasharon to a victory against the league leader Maccabi T-A (14-5) 99-92 in the Israeli Winner League on Tuesday night. He scored 21 points and added 4 passes in 26 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Bnei Hertzeliyya (12-7) is placed third in the Winner League. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Green's first season with the team. This year Green has relatively solid stats: 14.0ppg, 2.6rpg, 4.3apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 43.1%, 3FGP: 35.1% and FT: 77.6% in 19 games. He is a naturalized American. Green played for the Georgian national team in 2010. Apparently he has never played in Georgia.

Marquez Haynes
Marquez Haynes
   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international point guard Marquez Haynes (191-86, college: Texas Arlington, currently plays in Basketball Champions League). Haynes managed to help Umana Reyer Venezia to win against the fifth-ranked Ventspils (7-7) 70-61 in the Basketball Champions League in Wednesday night's game. He scored 5 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 5 assists. Umana Reyer Venezia (9-5) is placed third in group B. This season Haynes averages: 8.1ppg, 1.8rpg, 4.4apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 41.1%, 3FGP: 22.1% and FT: 83.3%. He is a naturalized American. Haynes played for the Georgian national team six years ago. Interesting that he has never played in Georgia.

Jacob Pullen
   #4. Point guard Jacob Pullen (184-89, college: Kansas St., currently plays in VTB United League) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Unics Kazan (11-6) crushing them 98-73 in the VTB United League last Monday. Pullen scored 7 points and added 5 assists in 20 minutes. BC Khimky Moscow Region (13-3) is placed third in the VTB United League. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. This year Pullen's overall stats are: 8.8ppg, 1.2rpg and 2.1apg in 13 games. He is a naturalized American. Pullen used to play for the Georgian national team back in 2015.

Despite Metreveli's good performance the 14th-placed Scafati (6-16) lost 77-87 on the road to the higher-ranked (#13) FCM Ferentino in the West group. He recorded 10 points in 16 minutes. This year Metreveli's total stats are: 6.8ppg and 1.8rpg in four games. He is a former international player as he played for the Georgian senior team two years ago.

Merabi Mirziashvili
Merabi Mirziashvili

Isiani also added 4 rebounds. Isiani has averaged so far 8.2ppg and 4.3rpg. He plays currently for the Georgian U20 national team.


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

   #1. Experienced Quinton Hosley (201-F-84, college: Fresno St., currently plays in Iran) led Arak to a victory over the eighth-ranked Army (6-12) 87-75 in the Iranian Superleague last Thursday. Hosley was MVP of the game. He scored 26 points (!!!), had 6 boards, dished 3 assists and stole 4 balls. Shahrdary Arak (11-7) is placed fourth in the Superleague. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended. It's Hosley's first season with the team. Hosley has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 19.2ppg, 6.0rpg, 3.6apg and 3.1spg. Hosley is a naturalized American. Apparently he has never played in Georgia.

   #2. Grigol Shvangiradze (196-F-91, currently plays in Spain). Shvangiradze could not help Quintanar (10-9) to beat Villarrobledo (10-10). He scored 8 points.
