Here is the weekly review of the top performing Irish players, who play currently abroad.


Donnie McGrath
Donnie McGrath
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Donnie McGrath (193-84, college: Providence, currently plays in Greece). McGrath was the major contributor in PAOK's victory against the league outsider Kavala (0-5) crushing them 91-70 in the Greek A1 last Sunday. He scored 15 points. PAOK Thessaloniki (4-2) is placed fourth in the A1. But the season just started, so everything may happen. McGrath has relatively good stats this year: 13.8ppg, 2.6rpg, 2.8apg, 2FGP: 59.1%(13-22), 3FGP: 41.4% and FT: 77.8%. He is a naturalized American. McGrath played for the Irish senior national team four years ago. Strangely he has never played in Ireland.

Colin O'Reilly
Colin O'Reilly
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Colin O'Reilly (200-84, college: Post, currently plays in United Kingdom). O'Reilly led Plymouth Raiders to an easy victory against the ninth-ranked Durham Wildcats (3-6) crushing them 113-68 in the British BBL on Sunday night. He recorded 22 points and added 3 passes in 28 minutes. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (5-2) is placed fifth in the BBL. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's O'Reilly's first year with the team. O'Reilly has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 16.9ppg, 8.1rpg, 3.3apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 58.2%(32-55), 3FGP: 44.4% and FT: 85.7% in the seven games he played so far. O'Reilly played 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, currently plays in France). Mullins managed to help Chalons-Reims in a victory against the league outsider Bordeaux (1-8) crushing them 88-63 in the French ProB (second division) last Friday. He scored 5 points, grabbed 4 boards, dished 6 assists and stole 6 balls in 28 minutes. Chalons-Reims (6-3) is placed fifth in the ProB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This year Mullins' overall stats are: 7.1ppg, 2.8rpg, 4.3apg, 1.7spg, 2FGP: 54.3%, 3FGP: 28.6% and FT: 61.5% in the nine games. He is a naturalized American. Mullins played for the Irish national team three years ago. Apparently he has never played in Ireland.

Mark Reynolds
Mark Reynolds
   #4. Forward Mark Reynolds (197-84, currently plays in United Kingdom), who plays in the British BBL could not help Durham Wildcats (3-6) to beat London Lions (3-6). He recorded 5 points in 11 minutes. Durham Wildcats was crushed 101-74 on the road by the higher-ranked (#7) London Lions. It's Reynolds' first season with the team. This year Reynolds averages only 1.1ppg in the eight games. He used to play for the Irish national team back in 2007.

Conor Grace
Conor Grace
   #5. Former international forward Conor Grace (210-82, college: Davidson, currently plays in Sweden) was not able to help Eco Orebro (3-7) in their game against Uppsala Basket (6-3) in the Swedish Basketligan. Grace cannot count Friday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 2 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Eco Orebro was defeated 72-64 at home by the much higher-ranked Uppsala Basket (#4). Grace's total stats this season are: 7.9ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.3apg. He used to play for the Irish national team three years ago.


The list of other players, who all have Irish passport but never been selected to any of Irish national teams:

   #1. Levon Kendall (209-F-84, college: Pittsburgh, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB could not help Blusens Monbus (4-3) in their last game. Despite his good performance Blusens Monbus lost 69-73 on the road to the lower-ranked (#13) UCAM Murcia. Kendall recorded 13 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 32 minutes. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Kendall is ranked second on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best blockers (fifth place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Kendall averages: 16.4ppg, 6.4rpg, 1.9apg and 1.3bpg in the seven games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.

   #2. Will Hanley (200-G/F-90, agency: Duran International, college: Bowdoin, currently plays in Spain) led Oviedo CB to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Lan Mobel ISB (3-1) crushing them 79-57 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) in Saturday night's game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 14 points and getting the same number of rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Hanley's first season in pro basketball. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Oviedo Club Baloncesto (3-1) is placed second in the LEB Silver. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Hanley is currently fourth on the list of best rebounders and also on the list of most steals (second place). He has very reliable stats this season: 12.8ppg, 8.8rpg and 2.8spg. Hanley is a naturalized American. Apparently he has never played in Ireland.

   #3. Experienced Tony McCrory (199-G/F-77, college: Simon Fraser, currently plays in Switzerland) was not able to help the league outsider Starwings (0-6) in their game against Geneve Lions (4-2) in the Swiss LNA. Despite his very good performance on Sunday night McCrory scored 16 points, had 4 rebounds and dished 4 assists. McCrory is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fifth year in Starwings' roster. This season he has relatively solid stats: 11.7ppg, 3.5rpg and 3.3apg. McCrory is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and Irish.

   #4. Yaniv Strauss (190-F-92, currently plays in Israel) managed to help Kazrin/Galil in a victory against the closely-ranked Elitzur Ramla crushing them 98-74 in the Israeli National League (second division) on Tuesday night. Strauss scored only 4 points in 12 minutes. Kazrin/Galil (3-2) is placed seventh in the National League. This year Strauss averages just 2.0ppg in the five games.

   #5. Orel Lev (195-SG-93, currently plays in Israel) was not able to secure a victory for Hapoel Kfar Saba (1-4) in their game against Ironi Ramat Gan (4-1) in the Israeli National League (second division). He cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. Lev scored only 2 points. Hapoel Kfar Saba was crushed 78-57 in Ramat Gan by the leading Ironi. Lev's total stats this season are: 4.3ppg and 1.3rpg.

   #6. Bar Maor (191-PG-92, currently plays in Israel) is a teammate of previously mentioned Yaniv Strauss and both played together in the last Israeli National League game. Maor contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Elitzur Ramla crushing them 98-74. He scored only 2 points in 20 minutes. This year Maor's total stats are: 2.3ppg and 1.3spg in the four games.

Donaghy the star as Tralee Warriors crowned Men's Champions Trophy champions - 25 days ago
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 (2...   [read more]
