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


Kostas Vasiliadis
Kostas Vasiliadis
   #1. This week's number one is an international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84, agency: FCM, currently plays in Eurocup). He led his Spanish team Gescrap BB to a victory over the closely-ranked Lukoil Academik (2-3) crushing them 82-60 in the Eurocup in Wednesday night's game. Vasiliadis was MVP of the game. He recorded 20 points in 21 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (5-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season. They will play only one more game in the Eurocup Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Vasiliadis has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.3ppg, 4.0rpg, 2.8apg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 66.7% and FT: 83.3% in the four games he played so far. Vasiliadis is currently a member of the Greek senior national team.

Nick Calathes

   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida, currently plays in VTB United League). He was the major contributor in Lokomotiv's victory against the ninth-ranked Neptunas (1-6) 95-83 in the VTB United League last Sunday. Calathes recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and making 13 passes. He also added 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Lokomotiv Kuban (5-2) is placed third in group B.

   #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), who plays in Russia. Vougioukas could not help Unics Kazan (4-1) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the league leader Unics Kazan lost 76-91 on the road to the second-ranked Stelmet ZG. Vougioukas had a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added and 3 steals in 37 minutes. They ended the series of four consecutive victories. Vougioukas' team will play only one more game in the Eurocup Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial.

But that was another game of his team in Eurocup which we would like to mention. Zisis was the main contributor in a 2-point Gescrap BB's victory against the closely-ranked Buducnost (3-2) 68-66. He was the best player in that game. Zisis scored 14 points and added 3 assists. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (5-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season. Zisis is currently fifth on the list of best passers. He has very reliable stats this season: 10.8ppg, 1.2rpg and 5.4apg. Zisis is also Greek national team player.

Spartak St.Petersburg (5-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season. They will play only one more game in the Eurocup Regular Season.

Kostas Kaimakoglou
Kostas Kaimakoglou
   #6. Power forward Kostas Kaimakoglou (206-83, currently plays in VTB United League) is a teammate of previously mentioned Ian Vougioukas. However that was another game of his team in VTB United League which brought him to that list.
