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


Giannis Antetokounmpo
Giannis Antetokounmpo
   #1. This week's number one is an international swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo (211-94, agency: Octagon Europe, currently plays in NBA). He could not help the Milwaukee Bucks (24-30) in their last game. Despite Antetokounmpo's very good performance the Milwaukee Bucks (24-30) lost 114-122 on the road to the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the top scorer with 41 points. Antetokounmpo also added 8 rebounds, passed 6 assists and added 3 blocks in 42 minutes on the court. It's Antetokounmpo's fourth season with the team. He has individually a very good year with high stats. Antetokounmpo averages: 23.5ppg, 8.8rpg, 5.5apg, 2.0bpg, 1.7spg, 2FGP: 57.6%(402-698), 3FGP: 28.1% and FT: 79.3% in 52 games he played so far.

   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84, currently plays in China). He was not able to help Qingdao Eagles (16-20) in their last game on Friday. Despite Mavrokefalidis' very good performance Qingdao Eagles were edged 101-100 in Sichuan by the higher-ranked Sichuan BW (#7). He was the top scorer with 37 points. Mavrokefalidis also added 8 rebounds and 4 assists. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Mavrokefalidis' first season with the team. This year he has very high stats. Mavrokefalidis averages: 20.3ppg, 8.8rpg, 2.5apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 55.8%(101-181), 3FGP: 35.0%.

He was not able to secure a victory for Umana Venezia (12-7) in their game against Grissin Bon RE (11-8) in the Italian Serie A. Bramos recorded 9 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 35 minutes. But Umana Venezia was edged 74-73 in Reggio Emilia by the lower-ranked (#5) Grissin Bon RE. It was Umana Venezia's third consecutive loss in a row. Bramos has relatively good stats this year: 10.1ppg, 3.5rpg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 48.8%, 3FGP: 43.9% and FT: 84.0% in 19 games. He is a naturalized American. Bramos played for the Greek national team four years ago. Strangely he has never played in Greece.

Nikolaos Zisis
   #5. Former international guard Nikolaos Zisis (197-83, also represented by Octagon Europe, currently plays in Germany) led Brose Baskets to an easy victory against the 11th-ranked Deutsche Bank Skyliners (8-13) 76-57 in the German BBL last Sunday. Zisis recorded 12 points (made all of his seven free throws) in only a mere 14 minutes. Brose Baskets Bamberg (19-1) is placed second in the BBL.

Perperoglou did not beat the league record on Friday evening. He recorded only 3 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. The 12th-placed FC Barcelona (8-14) was defeated 69-62 at home by the lower-ranked Galatasaray (#15) in the group A of Euroleague. It was FC Barcelona's fourth consecutive loss in a row. Perperoglou's total stats this season are: 5.1ppg, 3.1rpg and 1.5apg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Greek National Team roster.

Fotios Lampropoulos

Despite Lampropoulos' very good performance Boca Juniors (#10) lost 69-74 in Concordia to the second-ranked Estudiantes in the Sur group. He was the top scorer with 22 points. Lampropoulos also added 8 rebounds in 35 minutes. It was Boca Juniors' seventh consecutive loss in a row. Lampropoulos has very impressive stats this year: 15.4ppg, 8.4rpg and 1.7apg in 33 games. He used to play for the Greek U18 national team fourteen years ago.

Leonidas Kaselakis
Leonidas Kaselakis
   #8. Small forward Leonidas Kaselakis (202-90, currently plays in Kazakhstan) led Astana to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Barsy Atyrau (4-6) 80-67 in the Kazakhstan National League last Saturday. Kaselakis was MVP of the game. He scored 20 points, had 8 rebounds and dished 6 assists. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. BK Astana (14-0) is placed first in the National League. So far his team won all fourteen games in the Regular Season. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This season Kaselakis has very high stats. He averages: 17.8ppg, 8.0rpg, 5.0apg and 1.6spg. Kaselakis used to play for the Greek U20 national team back in 2010.

Vougioukas scored 9 points. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lokomotiv Kuban (5-1) is placed first in the Eurocup. There are only two games left until the end of the Eurocup Second Stage. So now every game will be important. Vougioukas' total stats this season are: 8.9ppg, 4.1rpg and 1.8apg. He used to play for the Greek national team three years ago.

Kostas Koufos
Kostas Koufos
   #10. Center Kostas Koufos (213-89, college: Ohio St., currently plays in NBA) contributed to an easy victory against the Boston Celtics (36-19) 108-92 in the NBA last Wednesday. Koufos scored 6 points, had 11 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 27 minutes. The Sacramento Kings have 24-32 record this season. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. This year Koufos' total stats are: 6.2ppg and 5.5rpg in 55 games. He is a naturalized American. Koufos is an international player who is currently on the senior Greek National Team roster. Apparently he has never played in Greece.

   #11. Former international guard Dimitrios Katsivelis (196-91, currently plays in Kazakhstan) is a teammate of previously mentioned Leonidas Kaselakis. But that was another game of his team in Kazakhstan National League which we would like to mention. Katsivelis was the major contributor in Astana's victory against one of league's weakest teams Barsy Atyrau 79-64. He scored 16 points, had 4 boards, passed 6 assists and added 6 steals. Katsivelis has averaged so far 9.8ppg, 4.8rpg, 6.8apg and 2.8spg. He used to play for the Greek national team four years ago.

   #12. International shooting guard Tyler Dorsey (193-96, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to Oregon's victory against the University of Southern California 81-70 in the NCAA last Saturday. Dorsey recorded 19 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. This season he has relatively solid stats: 13.1ppg, 3.4rpg and 1.9apg. Dorsey is a naturalized American. He is also in the roster of the Greek national team. Interesting that Dorsey has never played in Greece.

   #13.

Auguste recorded 9 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in 22 minutes. It was his first game for Usak Sportlif this season. But Usak Sportlif (#3) lost 72-82 on the road to the lower-ranked (#7) Oradea in the group Q of FIBA Europe Cup. Auguste is a naturalized American. Apparently he has never played in Greece.

Mitrou-Long is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fifth year in Iowa St.'s roster. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Mitrou-Long averages: 15.5ppg, 4.8rpg, 2.8apg and 1.2spg in 24 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Greek and Canadian. Despite Mitrou-Long's Greek passport, he previously played for the Canadian U19 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Greek team.

He scored 9 points. Keravnos Strovolou (12-1) is placed first in the Division A. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row.

He is another player who holds two passports: Greek and Cypriot.

   #5.
