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 was the major contributor in a Gescrap BB's victory against the league outsider Lagun Aro GBC (4-18) 91-72 in the Spanish ACB in Saturday night's game. Vasiliadis recorded 19 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists (made all of his six free throws) in 28 minutes on the court. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (14-8) is placed fourth in the ACB. Vasiliadis belongs to league's top scorers and is ranked #7 with 14.2ppg. He also averaged so far 3.3rpg, 1.9apg, 2FGP: 51.4%, 3FGP: 35.5% and FT: 91.6%(87-95) in the 22 games he played so far. Vasiliadis is currently a member of the Greek senior national team.

Nikolaos Zisis
Nikolaos Zisis
   #2. Second place goes to an international 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 led Gescrap BB to a victory over the league outsider Lagun Aro GBC (4-18) 91-72. He was MVP of the game. Zisis recorded 21 points and added 5 passes. It's Zisis' first season with the team. This year he averages: 8.3ppg, 1.7rpg, 3.5apg, 2FGP: 49.5%, 3FGP: 30.3% and FT: 83.1%. Zisis 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), who plays in Russia. He could not help Spartak St.Petersburg (3-3) in their last game. Despite Mavrokefalidis' very good performance the second-placed Spartak St.Petersburg was edged 68-66 on the road by the lower-ranked (#4) Cajasol in the group K of Eurocup. He was the top scorer with 19 points. Mavrokefalidis also added 5 rebounds in 30 minutes. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. Mavrokefalidis has relatively good stats this year: 13.8ppg, 5.4rpg, 1.6apg, 2FGP: 53.0%, 3FGP: 44.4% and FT: 76.3% in the 12 games. He played for the Greek national team two years ago.

Dimitris Haritopoulos
Dimitris Haritopoulos
   #4. Power forward Dimitris Haritopoulos (205-83, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in Bulgaria) was the main contributor in a Lukoil Academik's victory against the league outsider U20 (0-18) crushing them 92-55 in a derby game in the Bulgarian NBL in Friday night's game. Haritopoulos was the best player in that game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 25 points and getting 11 rebounds. Lukoil Academik Sofia (16-2) is placed first in the NBL. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Haritopoulos has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 18.0ppg and 9.5rpg. Haritopoulos used to play for the Greek national team back in 2005.

Nick Calathes
Nick Calathes
   #5. International point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Russia was not able to help Lokomotiv (5-1) in their last game. Despite his good performance Lokomotiv lost 88-94 in Zielona Gora to the lower-ranked (#3) Stelmet ZG in the group K of Eurocup. Calathes had a double-double by scoring 13 points and making 11 passes. He also added 5 rebounds in 34 minutes. They ended the series of six consecutive victories. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game is very crucial. Calathes is the league's best passer with 7.3apg. This year he also averages: 13.4ppg, 6.1rpg and 1.6spg in the 12 games. Calathes is a naturalized American. He plays currently for the Greek national team. Calathes used to play for 3-year contract with Panathinaikos Athens in Greek league.

Kostas Koufos
Kostas Koufos
   #6. Center Kostas Koufos (213-89, college: Ohio St., currently plays in NBA) contributed to a 2-point Denver Nuggets' victory against the Portland Trail Blazers (26-31) 111-109 in the NBA on Wednesday night. He recorded 11 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets have a solid 37-22 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Koufos has relatively solid stats: 8.0ppg, 6.5rpg and 1.4bpg. He is a naturalized American. Koufos is a former international player as he played for the Greek senior team two years ago.

Vougioukas scored 12 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in a mere 19 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 2 ranked teams in group L. Unics Kazan (4-2) is placed first. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be important. Vougioukas has reliable stats this year: 14.0ppg, 6.2rpg and 1.5apg in the 11 games. He is also Greek national team player.

Stavros Toutziarakis

Despite his very good performance last Tuesday Toutziarakis recorded a double-double by scoring 24 points and getting 13 rebounds. He also added 3 assists. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be extremely important. Toutziarakis' stats this season are: 13.0ppg, 7.7rpg and 1.2apg.
