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 could not help Baskonia (17-13) in their last game. Despite Shengelia's good performance Baskonia lost 90-98 on the road to the second-ranked CSKA. He recorded 12 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists in 21 minutes on the court. Shengelia has relatively good stats this year: 10.7ppg, 4.2rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 51.0% and FT: 77.3% in 22 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

Jacob Pullen
Jacob Pullen
   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Jacob Pullen (184-89, college: Kansas St., currently plays in VTB United League). Pullen was the major contributor in Khimki's victory against the eighth-ranked Astana (9-15) 90-87 in the VTB United League last Monday. He scored 21 points. BC Khimki Moscow Region (18-5) is placed third in group A. Pullen's team will play only one more game in the VTB United League Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This season Pullen averages: 9.7ppg, 1.1rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 40.4% and FT: 87.5%. He is a naturalized American. Pullen played for the Georgian national team in 2015. 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). He was not able to help Armani Milano in their game against Enel Brindisi (13-14) in the Italian Serie A. Hickman was the second best scorer with 9 points. He also added 8 rebounds. But the league leader Armani Milano was edged 70-68 in Brindisi by the much lower-ranked Enel (#9). There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This season Hickman has relatively solid stats: 10.4ppg, 2.9rpg, 2.8apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 53.6%, 3FGP: 39.2% and FT: 70.3%. He is a naturalized American. Hickman played for the Georgian national team three years ago. Apparently he has never played in Georgia.

Marquez Haynes
Marquez Haynes
   #4. Point guard Marquez Haynes (191-86, college: Texas Arlington, currently plays in Italy) contributed to an Umana Venezia's victory against the 11th-ranked Brescia (12-15) 84-79 in the Italian Serie A last Saturday. Haynes scored 8 points and added 5 assists in 30 minutes. Umana Reyer Venezia (18-9) is placed second in the Serie A. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Haynes has reliable stats this year: 12.0ppg, 2.4rpg and 3.3apg in 27 games. He is a naturalized American. Haynes used to play for the Georgian national team back in 2011. Interesting that he has never played in Georgia.

Giorgi Shermadini
Giorgi Shermadini
   #5. International center Giorgi Shermadini (217-89, currently plays in Spain) was not able to secure a victory for one of league's weakest teams Andorra (14-13) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Shermadini's good performance Andorra was crushed 93-69 in Malaga by the higher-ranked Unicaja (#7). He was the top scorer with 14 points. Shermadini also added 5 rebounds. Shermadini has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.3ppg and 7.3rpg. Shermadini plays currently for the Georgian national team.

Corey Fisher
Corey Fisher
   #6. Point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova, currently plays in Lithuania) contributed to an easy victory against one of league's weakest teams Nevezis (6-27) crushing them 92-56 in the Lithuanian LKL in Monday night's game. He scored 10 points, made 6 passes and 3 steals in 17 minutes. Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (24-9) is placed second in the LKL. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be extremely important. This year Fisher's overall stats are: 9.2ppg, 2.3rpg and 3.8apg in 33 games. He is a naturalized American. Despite Fisher played previously for the USA university national team, he is also a former international player as he played for the Georgian senior team five years ago. However Fisher has never played in Georgia.
