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


Loukas Mavrokefalidis
Loukas Mavrokefalidis
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84, currently plays in VTB United League). He led his Russian team Spartak St.Petersburg to a victory over the eighth-ranked Azovmash (1-4) 81-76 in the VTB United League in Sunday night's game. Mavrokefalidis was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 30 points and getting 10 rebounds. Mavrokefalidis also added 5 assists in 37 minutes on the court. Spartak St.Petersburg (5-0) is placed first in group A. So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Mavrokefalidis has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.0ppg, 5.6rpg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 56.9%(33-58) and FT: 92.9% in the five games he played so far. Mavrokefalidis played for the Greek senior national team one years ago.

Kostas Vasiliadis
Kostas Vasiliadis
   #2. Second place goes to an international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84, agency: FCM, currently plays in Eurocup). He was the main contributor in a Gescrap BB's victory against the closely-ranked Spirou Charleroi (0-2) 85-69 in the Eurocup last Tuesday. Vasiliadis was the best player in that game. He scored 17 points and grabbed 6 rebounds (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line). It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (2-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This season Vasiliadis has very high stats. He averages: 17.0ppg, 4.0rpg, 3.0apg, 2.0spg and FT: 83.3%. Vasiliadis is in the roster of the Greek senior national team.

Kostas Kaimakoglou
Kostas Kaimakoglou
   #3. The Greek player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Kostas Kaimakoglou (206-83, currently plays in VTB United League), who plays in Russia. He could not help Unics Kazan (3-2) in their last game. Despite Kaimakoglou's very good performance the fourth-placed Unics Kazan lost 74-85 on the road to the second-ranked Khimky in the group A of VTB United League. He was the top scorer with 20 points. Kaimakoglou also added made 3 passes and 4 steals in 28 minutes. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Kaimakoglou has relatively good stats this year: 14.8ppg, 6.0rpg, 2.0apg, 2.2spg, 2FGP: 53.1% and FT: 88.9% in the five games. He is also a member of the Greek senior national team.

Nikolaos Zisis
Nikolaos Zisis
   #4. Guard Nikolaos Zisis (197-83, currently plays in Eurocup) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kostas Vasiliadis and both played together in the last Eurocup game. Zisis was the major contributor in a Gescrap BB's victory against the closely-ranked Spirou Charleroi (0-2) 85-69. He scored 14 points and added 9 passes. It's Zisis' first season with the team. Zisis is currently second on the league's list of best passers. He has very reliable stats this season: 14.0ppg and 7.5apg. Zisis is also Greek national team player.

Ian Vougioukas
Ian Vougioukas
   #5. International power forward Ian Vougioukas (212-85, college: St.Louis, currently plays in Eurocup) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kostas Kaimakoglou. But that was another game of his team in Eurocup which we would like to mention. Vougioukas contributed to an Unics Kazan's victory against the closely-ranked Base Oostende (1-1) 83-72. He was the top player that evening. Vougioukas scored 20 points in a mere 19 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Unics Kazan (2-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. This year Vougioukas has relatively solid stats: 15.0ppg and 4.5rpg in the two games. He plays currently for the Greek national team.

Nick Calathes

Calathes scored 16 points and added 6 passes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lokomotiv Kuban (2-0) is placed second in the Eurocup. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Calathes has reliable stats this season: 12.5ppg, 4.5rpg and 3.0apg. He is a naturalized American. Calathes is an international player who is currently on the senior Greek National Team roster.

Koufos had a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 10 rebounds. He also added 3 blocks in 25 minutes. The Denver Nuggets have 4-4 record this season. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Koufos' stats this year are: 7.4ppg, 6.0rpg and 1.9bpg in the eight games. He is a naturalized American. Koufos used to play for the Greek national team last year. Strangely he has never played in Greece.

Despite Fotsis' good performance Armani Milano was defeated 105-100 in Venezia by the higher-ranked Umana (#8). He recorded 12 points.
