Colin O'Reilly's 31 points make him top Irish player abroad of the week - Apr 19, 2012


POSTED BY:

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


Colin O'Reilly
Colin O'Reilly
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Colin O'Reilly (200-84, college: Post). He led Cheshire Jets to a victory over the closely-ranked Glasgow Rocks (14-14) 80-64 in the British BBL in Sunday night's game. O'Reilly was MVP of the game. He scored 31 points (!!!), had 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 38 minutes on the court. Cheshire Jets (11-17) is placed seventh in the BBL. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. O'Reilly has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.4ppg, 7.2rpg, 3.2apg, 2FGP: 50.9%, 3FGP: 40.2% and FT: 74.6% in the 25 games he played so far. O'Reilly played for the Irish senior national team three years ago.

Mihajlo Pesic
Mihajlo Pesic
   #2. Second place goes to former international power forward Mihajlo Pesic (206-81, agency: Court Side). He was the main contributor in a 1-point Inter Bratislava's victory against the seventh-ranked BK Loko Plzen (10-30) 61-60 in the Czech Republic NBL last Wednesday. Pesic was the best player in that game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 12 rebounds. Pesic also added 3 blocks. BK Inter Bratislava (10-30) is placed sixth in A2 group. It's Pesic's first season with the team. Pesic is ranked second on the list of the best rebounders in the league. He has very reliable stats this season: 12.1ppg, 8.5rpg, 2FGP: 48.2% and FT: 62.7%. Pesic has a dual citizenship: Irish and Serbian. Despite he played previously for the Serbian national team, Pesic played also for the Irish national team in 2009.

Levon Kendall
Levon Kendall
   #3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Levon Kendall (209-84, college: Pittsburgh), who plays in the Spanish ACB. He could not help Blusens Monbus (10-19) to beat Cajasol (16-13). Kendall scored 8 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 31 minutes. Blusens Monbus was badly defeated 79-59 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#7) Cajasol. This year Kendall's overall stats are: 9.0ppg, 5.9rpg, 2FGP: 49.7% and FT: 66.7% in the 29 games. He is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and Irish. Despite Kendall played previously for the Canadian national team, he played also for the Irish national team in 2009.

Donnie McGrath
Donnie McGrath
   #4. Guard Donnie McGrath (193-84, college: Providence) contributed to an overtime Tezenis Verona's victory against the closely-ranked Assi Ostuni (10-15) 71-70 in the Italian Lega2 (second division) in Sunday night's game. McGrath scored 9 points. Tezenis Verona (12-13) is placed ninth in the Lega2. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. McGrath's total stats this season are: 3.8ppg and 1.4rpg. He is a naturalized American. Despite McGrath played previously for the USA national team, he is currently in the Irish national team roster. Strangely McGrath has never played in Ireland.

Bryan Mullins
Bryan Mullins
   #5. Former international point guard Bryan Mullins (185-87, college: S.Illinois) managed to help Chalons-Reims in a victory against the eighth-ranked Lille Metropole (16-14) 82-69 in the French ProB (second division) last Friday. He scored only 4 points and added 7 passes in 23 minutes. Chalons-Reims (21-9) is placed third in the ProB. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Mullins belongs to league's best passers and is ranked #2 with 5.7apg. This year he also averages: 9.4ppg, 2.3rpg and 1.9spg in the 30 games. Mullins is a naturalized American. He used to play for the Irish national team three years ago. Apparently Mullins has never played in Ireland.
