Colin O'Reilly selected the top Irish playing abroad in last week's games - Nov 22, 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, currently plays in United Kingdom). O'Reilly led Plymouth Raiders to a victory over the closely-ranked London Lions (4-7) 108-98 in the British BBL last Sunday. He was MVP of the game. O'Reilly scored 29 points (!!!), grabbed 6 rebounds and dished 5 assists. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (6-3) is placed fourth in the BBL. But the season just started, so everything may happen. O'Reilly is currently ninth on the list of top scorers. He has individually a very good season with high stats. O'Reilly averages: 17.8ppg, 7.9rpg, 3.4apg, 2FGP: 61.3%(46-75) and FT: 87.0%. He played for the Irish senior national team three years ago.

Donnie McGrath
Donnie McGrath
   #2. Second place goes to former international guard Donnie McGrath (193-84, college: Providence, currently plays in Greece). McGrath was the main contributor in PAOK's victory against the ninth-ranked Kolossos (3-3) 68-63 in the Greek A1 on Monday night. He was the best player in that game. McGrath scored 14 points in 32 minutes. PAOK Thessaloniki (4-2) is placed fourth in the A1. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's McGrath's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 13.8ppg, 2.5rpg, 2.5apg, 2FGP: 56.7%(17-30), 3FGP: 39.4% and FT: 83.3% in the six games he played so far. McGrath is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish national team in 2008. Strangely McGrath has never played in Ireland.

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), who plays in the French ProB (second division). Mullins could not help Chalons-Reims (6-4) to beat JL Bourg (5-5). He recorded 7 points and added 5 passes. Chalons-Reims was defeated 88-80 on the road by the lower-ranked JL Bourg (#7). They ended the series of three consecutive victories. Mullins' overall stats this season are: 7.1ppg, 2.5rpg, 4.4apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 55.0%, 3FGP: 28.6%. He is a naturalized American. Mullins played for the Irish national team three years ago. Apparently he has never played in Ireland.

Sean McCarthy
Sean McCarthy
   #4. Center Sean McCarthy (208-93, currently plays college basketball in the States) was not able to help the NJIT in their game against the South Carolina State University (0-0) in the NCAA. McCarthy recorded 8 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The NJIT was edged 77-74 in Orangeburg, SC by the South Carolina State University. McCarthy's overall stats this season are: 3.1ppg and 5.0rpg. He used to play for the Irish U16 national team back in 2009.


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) was the major contributor in a Blusens Monbus' victory against the closely-ranked Caja Laboral (5-3) 77-68 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. He scored 13 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 33 minutes. Blusens Monbus Obradoiro CAB (5-3) is placed ninth in the ACB. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Kendall is currently third on the list of top scorers and also on the list of best blockers (fourth place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Kendall averages: 16.0ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.9apg, 1.3bpg and 1.4spg in the eight 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), who plays in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) could not help Oviedo CB (3-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his very good performance Oviedo CB was defeated 85-80 on the road by the lower-ranked Castello (#8). Hanley recorded a double-double by scoring 27 points and getting 13 rebounds. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. It's Hanley's first season with the team. Hanley is currently second on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (third place). This season he has very high stats. Hanley averages: 15.6ppg, 9.6rpg and 2.2spg. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Hanley has never played in Ireland.

   #3. Experienced Tony McCrory (199-G/F-77, college: Simon Fraser, currently plays in Switzerland) led Starwings to an easy victory against one of league's weakest teams SAM Massagno (1-6) crushing them 100-77 in the Swiss LNA last Sunday. He recorded 26 points (!!!) in 36 minutes. Starwings Basket Regio Basel (1-6) is located at the very bottom in the LNA. But the situation may improve as they ended a series of six consecutive loses. McCrory is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fifth year in Starwings' roster. This season McCrory has relatively solid stats: 13.7ppg, 3.4rpg and 3.0apg in the seven games. He is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and Irish.

   #4. Owen McNally (203-F-87, college: Spring Hill, currently plays in United Kingdom) managed to help Glasgow Rocks in a victory against the closely-ranked Plymouth Raiders (6-3) 97-84 in the British BBL in Saturday night's game. McNally scored only 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 7 minutes on the court. Glasgow Rocks (5-3) is placed sixth in the BBL. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. This year McNally's overall stats are: 3.1ppg and 5.0rpg in the eight games. He is a naturalized American.

   #5. Bar Maor (191-PG-92, currently plays in Israel) was not able to help Hapoel Kazrin (3-3) in their game against Ironi Kiryat Ata (5-1) in the Israeli National League (second division). Maor cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points and added 3 passes in 13 minutes. Hapoel Kazrin was edged 83-81 in Kiryat Ata by the second-ranked Ironi. It's Maor's first season with the team. This year Maor's overall stats are: 2.2ppg and 1.4apg in the five games.

   #6. Orel Lev (195-SG-93, currently plays in Israel) contributed to an easy victory against the fourth-ranked Elitzur Ramla 87-70 in the Israeli National League (second division) in Tuesday night's game. He scored only 2 points. Lev's overall stats this season are: 3.8ppg and 1.5rpg.

The 42-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 15 rebounds, while his team beat Eanna (#11, 5-16) 89-75. Killester maintains the 5th position in Irish Super League.
