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


Kostas Koufos
Kostas Koufos
   #1. This week's number one is former international center Kostas Koufos (213-89, college: Ohio St., currently plays in NBA). He was the major contributor in a Denver Nuggets' victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers (10-31) 98-91 in the NBA in Friday night's game. Koufos scored 21 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 35 minutes on the court. The Denver Nuggets have 24-17 record this season. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Koufos has relatively good stats this year: 8.1ppg, 6.4rpg, 1.5bpg and FT: 57.7% in the 40 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Koufos played for the Greek senior national team two years ago. Strangely he has never played in Greece.

Loukas Mavrokefalidis
Loukas Mavrokefalidis
   #2. Second place goes to former international center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Russia. Mavrokefalidis could not help Spartak St.Petersburg (1-1) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite his very good performance the second-placed Spartak St.Petersburg was defeated 84-70 on the road by the leading Lokomotiv in the group K of Eurocup. Mavrokefalidis was the top scorer with 20 points. He also added 9 rebounds. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. This season Mavrokefalidis has relatively solid stats: 13.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 51.2% and FT: 71.4%. He played for the Greek national team in 2011.

Kostas Vasiliadis
Kostas Vasiliadis
   #3. The Greek player who performed third best last week abroad was an international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84, agency: FCM, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Spain. Vasiliadis was not able to help Gescrap BB (0-2) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Gescrap BB (#4) was crushed 99-76 in Riga by the second-ranked VEF Riga in the group J of Eurocup. Vasiliadis was the top scorer with 20 points (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line) in 37 minutes. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game is very crucial. Vasiliadis has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 16.7ppg, 4.2rpg, 2.3apg, 1.3spg, 3FGP: 40.8% and FT: 86.7% in the six games. Vasiliadis is also a member of the Greek senior national team.

Nick Calathes
Nick Calathes
   #4. Point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida, currently plays in Eurocup) led his Russian team Lokomotiv to a victory against the third-ranked Stelmet ZG (1-1) 96-87 in the Eurocup in Wednesday night's game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and making 12 passes. Calathes also added 6 rebounds. Lokomotiv Kuban (2-0) is placed first in group K. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be important. It's Calathes' first season with the team. Calathes is currently second on the league's list of best passers. He has very reliable stats this season: 15.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 7.3apg and 1.1spg. Calathes is a naturalized American. He is also Greek national team player. Calathes used to play for 3-year contract with Panathinaikos Athens in Greek league.

Ian Vougioukas
Ian Vougioukas
   #5. International power forward Ian Vougioukas (212-85, college: St.Louis, currently plays in Eurocup) contributed to an Unics Kazan's victory against the closely-ranked Galatasaray (1-1) 80-74 in the Eurocup last Wednesday. He recorded 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 28 minutes. Unics Kazan (1-1) is placed fourth in group L. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be extremely important. Vougioukas has very impressive stats this year: 15.3ppg, 6.1rpg and 1.5apg in the eight games. He plays currently for the Greek national team.

Kostas Kaimakoglou
Kostas Kaimakoglou
   #6. 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 was not able to secure a victory for Unics Kazan (1-1) in their game against ratiopharm Ulm (1-1). He scored 9 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 5 assists. But Unics Kazan (#4) was defeated 95-87 in Ulm by the second-ranked ratiopharm in the group L of Eurocup. Kaimakoglou has reliable stats this season: 13.7ppg, 5.0rpg and 2.5apg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Greek National Team roster.

Theodoros Papaloukas
Theodoros Papaloukas
   #7. An experienced former international point guard Theodoros Papaloukas (200-77, also represented by FCM, currently plays in Euroleague) managed to help CSKA Moscow in a victory against the seventh-ranked Brose Baskets Bamberg (0-3) 90-83 in the Euroleague in Thursday night's game. Papaloukas scored only 4 points and added 3 assists in 11 minutes. CSKA Moscow (3-0) is placed second in group E. So far his team won all three games in the Top 16. This year Papaloukas' overall stats are: 2.0ppg and 2.0apg in the two games. He used to play for the Greek national team five years ago.

Dusan Sakota
Dusan Sakota

He scored 9 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 18 minutes. But the league leader Cimberio Varese was edged 87-85 in Venezia by the much lower-ranked (#9) Umana. They ended the series of four consecutive victories. This year Sakota's total stats are: 6.5ppg and 2.6rpg in the 14 games. He used to play for the Greek U20 national team back in 2006.

Nikolaos Zisis
Nikolaos Zisis
   #9. International guard Nikolaos Zisis (197-83, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kostas Vasiliadis. However that was another game of his team in Spanish ACB which brought him to that list. Zisis contributed to a Gescrap BB's victory against the 14th-ranked CB Canarias (6-11) 78-70. He scored 5 points in 23 minutes. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (11-6) is placed fifth in the ACB. Zisis is currently sixth on the league's list of best passers with 3.7apg. He also averaged so far 7.4ppg and 2.1rpg in the 17 games. Zisis is also in the roster of the Greek national team.

He is an international player who is currently on the senior Greek National Team roster.

   #11.

This year his other stats are: 12.7ppg and 1.2apg in the 21 games. Toutziarakis used to play for the Greek U20 national team six years ago.

   #12. Former international forward Mihalis Kakiouzis (206-76, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in Switzerland), who plays in the Swiss LNA couldn't help SAV Vacallo (9-4) in their last game.

He has averaged so far 3.2ppg, 1.8rpg and 1.3apg in the 17 games. Papapetrou is also in the roster of the Greek U18 national team.
