POSTED BY:

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


Kostas Vasiliadis
Kostas Vasiliadis
   #1. This week's number one is an international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84, agency: FCM, currently plays in Spain). He led Gescrap BB to a 3-point victory over the league outsider Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (1-8) 86-83 in the Spanish ACB in Saturday night's game. Vasiliadis was MVP of the game. He scored 28 points (!!!) in 37 minutes on the court. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (7-2) is placed fourth in the ACB. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Vasiliadis is currently ninth on the league's list of top scorers with 14.0ppg. He also averaged so far 3.4rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 59.3%(16-27), 3FGP: 36.8% and FT: 91.2%(31-34) in the nine games he played so far. Vasiliadis is currently a member of the Greek senior national team.

Nick Calathes
Nick Calathes
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida, currently plays in Eurocup). He was the major contributor in Lokomotiv's victory against the closely-ranked Galatasaray (3-1) crushing them 91-66 in the Eurocup last Wednesday. Calathes recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and making 10 passes. He also added 6 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lokomotiv Kuban (3-1) is placed first in the Eurocup. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Calathes is currently sixth on the list of best passers. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Calathes averages: 16.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 5.5apg, 2FGP: 52.5%, 3FGP: 35.7%. He is a naturalized American. Calathes is in the roster of the Greek senior national team. He used to play for 3-year contract with Panathinaikos Athens in Greek league.

Ian Vougioukas
Ian Vougioukas
   #3. The Greek player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Ian Vougioukas (212-85, college: St.Louis, currently plays in Eurocup). Vougioukas led his Russian team Unics Kazan to a victory over the closely-ranked Panionios (0-4) 82-73 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. He was the best player in that game. Vougioukas had a double-double by scoring 17 points and getting 10 rebounds. He also added 7 assists and 3 blocks in 30 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Unics Kazan (4-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Vougioukas' first season with the team. Vougioukas has relatively good stats this year: 15.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 79.3%(23-29) and FT: 93.3% in the four 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 Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kostas Vasiliadis and both played together in the last Spanish ACB game. Zisis contributed to a 3-point Gescrap BB's victory against the league outsider Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (1-8) 86-83. He scored 11 points and added 7 assists. Zisis' overall stats this season are: 7.8ppg, 2.1rpg and 4.1apg. He is also Greek national team player.

Kostas Kaimakoglou
Kostas Kaimakoglou
   #5. International power forward Kostas Kaimakoglou (206-83, currently plays in Eurocup) is a teammate of previously mentioned Ian Vougioukas. But that was another game of his team in Eurocup which we would like to mention. Kaimakoglou contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Panionios (0-4) crushing them 92-72. He scored 17 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 35 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Unics Kazan (4-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. Kaimakoglou has very impressive stats this year: 17.0ppg, 5.3rpg and 1.8apg in the four games. He plays currently for the Greek national team.

Loukas Mavrokefalidis
Loukas Mavrokefalidis
   #6. Center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84, currently plays in Eurocup) was the main contributor in a 3-point Spartak St.Petersburg's victory against the closely-ranked ratiopharm Ulm (2-2) 77-74 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. Mavrokefalidis was the top player that evening. He recorded 19 points. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Spartak St.Petersburg (4-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This season Mavrokefalidis has relatively solid stats: 13.8ppg, 4.5rpg and 2.8apg. He is international player as he played for the Greek senior team one years ago.

Antonis Fotsis
Antonis Fotsis
   #7. International forward Antonis Fotsis (209-81, currently plays in Euroleague) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Cedevita (2-5) 75-60 in the Euroleague in Thursday night's game. Fotsis was the top player that evening. He recorded 15 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 22 minutes. EA7 Emporio Armani Milano (3-4) is placed fourth in group C. They ended the series of four consecutive loses. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be extremely important. This year Fotsis' overall stats are: 7.9ppg, 4.7rpg and 1.1apg in the seven games. He is also Greek national team player.

Kostas Koufos
Kostas Koufos
   #8. Center Kostas Koufos (213-89, college: Ohio St., currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA could not help the Denver Nuggets (8-7) to beat the Utah Jazz (9-7). Koufos scored 7 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 28 minutes. The Denver Nuggets were edged 105-103 on the road by the Utah Jazz. It was Nuggets' first loss after four consecutive victories. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Koufos' total stats are: 6.1ppg, 5.9rpg and 1.7bpg in the 15 games. He is a naturalized American. Koufos used to play for the Greek national team last year. Strangely he has never played in Greece.

Christos Tapoutos
   #9. Former international forward Christos Tapoutos (203-82, currently plays in Turkey), who plays in the Turkish TBL was not able to help Olin Edirne (2-5) in their last game.

   #15. Former University international center Giorgos Galiotos (213-86, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in Bulgaria) couldn't help Euroins Cherno More in their game against Rilski Sportist in the Bulgarian NBL. He cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. Galiotos scored only 2 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 17 minutes. His team lost 73-86.

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

   #1. Pat Calathes (208-G/F-85, college: St.Joseph's, currently plays in Israel) was the major contributor in a Maccabi Haifa's victory against the league leader Maccabi Ashdod (4-0) 80-74 in the Israeli Winner League last Wednesday. Calathes recorded 14 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Maccabi Bazan Haifa (5-2) is placed second in the Winner League. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Calathes belongs to league's best rebounders and is ranked #7. He has very reliable stats this season: 12.0ppg, 9.6rpg, 2.6apg and 1.3spg. Calathes is a naturalized American. He used to play for Costa Cafe Marousi in Greek league.

   #2.

Tsagarakis was the top player that evening. He scored 24 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Chalons-Reims (7-4) is placed fifth in the ProB. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Tsagarakis has reliable stats this season: 14.5ppg, 2.1rpg and 1.1apg. He has a dual citizenship: Greek and French. Despite Tsagarakis' Greek passport, he previously played for the French U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Greek team.

   #8. Corey Petros (208-F/C-93, currently studies in the States) helped Oakland edge the Texas Southern University 71-69 in the NCAA in Tuesday night's game.
