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


Tornike Shengelia
Tornike Shengelia
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Tornike Shengelia (206-91, currently plays in Euroleague). He led his Spanish team Baskonia to an easy victory against the 14th-ranked Brose Baskets (9-18) crushing them 96-71 in the Euroleague in Tuesday night's game. Shengelia had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 12 rebounds in 24 minutes on the court. Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (16-11) is placed sixth in the Euroleague. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Shengelia has relatively good stats this year: 11.5ppg, 4.4rpg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 51.5%, 3FGP: 52.6%(10-19) and FT: 76.5% in 19 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Corey Fisher

   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova, currently plays in Lithuania). Fisher was the major contributor in a Lietuvos rytas' victory against the seventh-ranked P.Zvaigzdes (11-16) 93-86 in the Lithuanian LKL last Sunday. He scored 23 points, had 5 rebounds and dished 7 assists. Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (19-8) is placed third in the LKL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row.
