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


Nick Calathes
Nick Calathes
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida, currently plays in Russia). He led Lokomotiv to a 1-point victory over the closely-ranked BC Nizhny Novgorod (4-7) 75-74 in the Russian PBL in Sunday night's game. Calathes was MVP of the game. He scored 22 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 29 minutes on the court. Lokomotiv Kuban (5-5) is placed fourth in the PBL. It's Calathes' first season with the team. Calathes belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #9) and also on the list of best passers (fourth place). He has very reliable stats this year: 13.8ppg, 5.4rpg, 3.8apg, 2FGP: 55.6%(35-63), 3FGP: 35.3% and FT: 51.2% in the eight games he played so far. Calathes is a naturalized American. He is currently a member of the Greek senior national team. Calathes used to play for 3-year contract with Panathinaikos Athens in Greek league.

Kostas Vasiliadis
Kostas Vasiliadis
   #2. Second place goes to an international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84, agency: FCM, currently plays in Eurocup). He led his Spanish team Gescrap BB to a 1-point victory over the closely-ranked Valencia Basket (2-2) 61-60 in the Eurocup last Tuesday. Vasiliadis was the best player in that game. He recorded 14 points. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (2-2) is placed second in group J. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. Vasiliadis has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.4ppg, 3.5rpg, 1.9apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 52.2%, 3FGP: 37.3% and FT: 84.6%. Vasiliadis is in the roster of the Greek senior national team.

Loukas Mavrokefalidis
Loukas Mavrokefalidis
   #3. The Greek player who performed third best last week abroad was former international center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84, currently plays in Eurocup). He led his Russian team Spartak St.Petersburg to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Stelmet ZG (1-3) crushing them 81-54 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. Mavrokefalidis recorded 11 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 28 minutes. Spartak St.Petersburg (3-1) is placed second in group K. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game is very crucial. Mavrokefalidis has relatively good stats this year: 13.4ppg, 5.5rpg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 52.0% and FT: 73.3% in the 10 games. He played for the Greek national team two years ago.
