Mihajlo Pesic's double-double lands him Player of the Week award among Irish playing currently abroad - Apr 26, 2012


POSTED BY:
EUROBASKET CENTER
  follow us on Facebook Twitter

We bring you last week's top performances from Irish who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Mihajlo Pesic
Mihajlo Pesic
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Mihajlo Pesic (206-81, agency: Court Side). Pesic led Inter Bratislava to a 1-point victory over the seventh-ranked BK Loko Plzen (10-30) 61-60 in the Czech Republic NBL last Wednesday. He was MVP of the game. Pesic recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 12 rebounds. He 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: 12.2ppg, 8.6rpg, 2FGP: 48.6% and FT: 62.8%. Pesic has a dual citizenship: Irish and Serbian. Despite he played previously for the Serbian national team, Pesic is currently a member of the Irish senior national team.

Colin O'Reilly
Colin O'Reilly
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Colin O'Reilly (200-84, college: Post). He led Cheshire Jets to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Sheffield One Health Sharks (13-17) crushing them 98-77 in the British BBL on Sunday night. O'Reilly had a triple-double by scoring 17 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and passing 10 assists in 38 minutes. Cheshire Jets (13-17) is placed sixth in the BBL. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. O'Reilly has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.4ppg, 7.3rpg, 3.7apg, 2FGP: 50.2%, 3FGP: 39.7% and FT: 74.6% in the 27 games he played so far. Despite O'Reilly played previously for the Serbian national team, he played also for the Irish national team in 2009.

Bryan Mullins
Bryan Mullins
   #3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international point guard Bryan Mullins (185-87, college: S.Illinois), who plays in the French ProB (second division). Mullins could not help Chalons-Reims (21-10) in their last game on Friday. Despite his good performance Chalons-Reims was edged 76-75 at home by the much lower-ranked ALM Evreux (#11). Mullins recorded 10 points and added 5 assists. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Mullins belongs to league's best passers (ranked #2) and also on the list of most steals (fifth place). His overall stats this season are: 9.5ppg, 2.3rpg, 5.6apg, 1.9spg, 2FGP: 46.4%, 3FGP: 35.9% and FT: 68.8%. Mullins is a naturalized American. Despite he played previously for the USA national team, Mullins played also for the Irish national team in 2009. Strangely he has never played in Ireland.

Donnie McGrath
Donnie McGrath
   #4. Guard Donnie McGrath (193-84, college: Providence) was not able to help Tezenis Verona (12-14) in their game against MarcoPoloShop.it (8-18) in the Italian Lega2 (second division). McGrath recorded 5 points and added 3 passes in 23 minutes. Tezenis Verona lost 81-91 on the road to the league outsider (#15) MarcoPoloShop.it. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This year McGrath's overall stats are: 4.0ppg, 1.3rpg and 1.3apg in the six games. He is a naturalized American. McGrath used to play for the Irish national team back in 2008. Apparently he has never played in Ireland.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Irish passport:

   #1. Levon Kendall (209-F-84, college: Pittsburgh) led Blusens Monbus to a victory over the closely-ranked Gran Canaria 2014 (12-19) crushing them 65-45 in the Spanish ACB in Saturday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Kendall had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 10 rebounds in 34 minutes. Blusens Monbus Obradoiro CAB (11-20) is placed 16th in the ACB. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Kendall averages: 9.2ppg and 5.9rpg in the 31 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish. Despite Kendall's Irish passport, he currently plays for the Canadian national team and is not eligible to play for the Irish team.
