#1. This week's number one is former international forward Colin O'Reilly (200-84, college: Post). He led Cheshire Jets to a victory against the league leader Newcastle Eagles (23-7) 99-89 in the British BBL in Friday night's game.
O'Reilly had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 12 rebounds. He also added 4 assists in 40 minutes on the court.
Cheshire Jets (13-17) is placed sixth in the BBL.
It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row.
O'Reilly has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.2ppg, 7.8rpg, 3.6apg, 2FGP: 50.2%, 3FGP: 38.4% and FT: 75.4% in the 31 games he played so far.
O'Reilly played for the Irish senior national team three years ago.
#2. Second place goes to former international forward Levon Kendall (209-84, college: Pittsburgh). He contributed to an overtime Blusens Monbus' victory against the closely-ranked CAI Zaragoza (16-18) 89-84 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday.
Kendall recorded 11 points and grabbed 5 rebounds.
Blusens Monbus Obradoiro CAB (13-21) is placed 13th in the ACB.
The Regular Season already ended.

He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.
Despite Kendall played previously for the Canadian national team, he played also for the Irish national team in 2009.
#3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Andrew James Ogilvy (211-88, college: Vanderbilt). Ogilvy managed to help Valencia Basket in a victory against the league outsider Blancos de Rueda (8-26) 76-59 in the Spanish ACB on Sunday night.
He recorded only 2 points in 14 minutes.
Valencia Basket (20-14) is placed fourth in the ACB.
Ogilvy's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical.
It's Ogilvy's first season with the team.
This year his overall stats are: 5.1ppg, 2.2rpg, 2FGP: 62.9%(44-70) and FT: 87.5% in the 20 games.
Ogilvy is another player who holds two passports: Australian and Irish.
He is also a member of the Irish senior national team.
#4. Point guard Bryan Mullins (185-87, college: S.Illinois) contributed to an easy victory against the 15th-ranked Le Portel (12-21) crushing them 98-59 in the French ProB (second division) in Friday night's game.
Mullins scored 7 points and added 13 assists.
Chalons-Reims (23-10) is placed third in the ProB.
His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial.
Mullins is currently second on the list of best passers and also on the list of most steals (fifth place).
His total stats this season are: 9.7ppg, 2.2rpg, 5.9apg and 1.9spg.
Mullins is a naturalized American.
Despite he played previously for the USA national team, Mullins is currently in the Irish national team roster.
Strangely he has never played in Ireland.

Kieran Donaghy (198-G/F-83) was the star of the show in Letterkenny today as Tralee swooped home to glory and scooped the silverware in the final of the Basketball Ireland Men's Champions Trophy. It was a thrilling finale in Donegal as Donaghy drove down the court and laid the ball up in style to send another epic battle with Regular Season champions, Templeogue, to overtime (66-66). That last gasp bucket was just one story of many that can be told from today's game, with Jason Killeen (211-C-85, college: Augusta) shining brightest for Templeogue in one of the closest Men's Super League clashes of the year. The story, however, lies with Tralee and the glory of their achievement and it is one that will be told for many years to come. From Donaghy to Trae Pemberton (193-G-92, college: Maryville, MO) - a guard who has dazzled for the Kingdom throughout the season - to Goran Pantovic (208-F-91, college: Drexel), the team worked as a unit throughout and managed to hold on in the dying seconds to add another page to the history books. It was Pemberton who stepped up to the mark with 7.8 seconds on the clock in overtime as they trailed Templeogue 73-70 and as hearts dropped around the court when his first effort did not find the mark, Donaghy was on hand for the offensive rebound to feed Pemberton once more and he made no mistake second time of asking to tie it yet again, 73-73. With double overtime looming, Donaghy had the final say of the game, adding a free throw in the dying seconds and it was with bated breath for all of Kerry as they watched the clock tick down in agonizing fashion.
