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). He led PAOK to an overtime victory over the closely-ranked AGOR (5-3) 91-85 in the Greek A1 in Saturday night's game. McGrath was MVP of the game. He scored 23 points and added 5 passes in 39 minutes on the court. PAOK Thessaloniki (6-2) is placed fourth in the A1. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's McGrath's first year with the team. McGrath has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.4ppg, 2.3rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 63.6%(28-44), 3FGP: 41.5% and FT: 76.2% in the eight games he played so far. McGrath is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish senior national team four years ago. Strangely McGrath 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). He managed to help UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders to win against the closely-ranked Worcester Wolves (7-7) crushing them 87-65 in the British BBL in Sunday night's game. O'Reilly recorded 5 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (8-3) is placed fourth in the BBL. 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. This season O'Reilly has very high stats. He averages: 16.5ppg, 7.6rpg, 3.4apg, 2FGP: 62.4%(53-85), 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 87.5%. 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). He contributed to Chalons-Reims' victory against the 13th-ranked Lille Metropole (5-7) 67-55 in the French ProB (second division) last Friday. Mullins scored only 3 points, had 5 boards, dished 5 assists and stole 4 balls in 27 minutes. Chalons-Reims (8-4) is placed fourth in the ProB. This year Mullins' overall stats are: 7.0ppg, 2.8rpg, 4.4apg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 51.1%, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 57.9% in the 12 games. 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), who plays in the NCAA could not help the NJIT to beat the Seton Hall University (0-0). He cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. McCarthy scored only 1 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in 22 minutes. The NJIT lost 59-68 on the road to the Seton Hall University. This year McCarthy's total stats are: 6.7ppg, 3.7rpg and 1.3apg in the six games. 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. Will Hanley (200-G/F-90, agency: Duran International, college: Bowdoin, currently plays in Spain) was the major contributor in an Oviedo CB's victory against the ninth-ranked Cafes Aitona (2-5) 57-51 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) last Saturday. He recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 10 rebounds. Hanley also added 2 blocks; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his first season in pro basketball. Oviedo Club Baloncesto (4-3) is placed fifth in the LEB Silver. It's Hanley's first year 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). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Hanley averages: 17.4ppg, 9.7rpg and 1.6spg. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Hanley has never played in Ireland.

   #2. Levon Kendall (209-F-84, college: Pittsburgh, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB could not help Blusens Monbus (5-5) to beat Asefa Estudiantes (6-4). He recorded 6 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 25 minutes. Blusens Monbus was crushed 89-66 on the road by the higher-ranked (#8) Asefa Estudiantes. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Kendall is currently eighth on the list of top scorers with 14.4ppg. This year his other stats are: 5.9rpg, 1.8apg and 1.1spg in the 10 games he played so far. Kendall has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.

   #3. Owen McNally (203-F-87, college: Spring Hill, currently plays in United Kingdom) managed to help Glasgow Rocks to win against one of league's weakest teams Manchester Giants (3-9) 83-77 in the British BBL on Friday night. McNally recorded 5 points and blocked 2 blocks. Glasgow Rocks (6-4) is placed sixth in the BBL. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. McNally's total stats this season are: 3.0ppg and 4.3rpg. He is a naturalized American.

   #4. Yaniv Strauss (190-F-92, currently plays in Israel) was not able to help Hapoel Kazrin (3-5) in their game against Hod Hasharon (6-2) in the Israeli National League (second division). Strauss scored 7 points in only 14 minutes. Hapoel Kazrin was crushed 82-56 in Hod Hasharon by the higher-ranked (#5) Hod Hasharon. It was Hapoel Kazrin's third consecutive loss in a row. It's Strauss' first season with the team. This year he averages only 2.9ppg in the eight games.

   #5. Mihajlo Pesic (206-F/C-81, agency: Three Eye Sports, currently plays in Cyprus) was not able to secure a victory for AEL (1-5) in their game against Etha (4-2) in the Cypriot Division A. Pesic scored 6 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. AEL was defeated 85-72 at home by the higher-ranked Etha (#3). It was AEL's fifth consecutive loss in a row. It's Pesic's first season with the team. His total stats this year are: 8.5ppg and 7.0rpg. Pesic is another player who holds two passports: Irish and Serbian.

   #6. Experienced Tony McCrory (199-G/F-77, college: Simon Fraser, currently plays in Switzerland), who plays in the Swiss LNA couldn't help Starwings (1-8) in their last game. Despite his good performance the bottom-ranked Starwings lost in an overtime 79-89 on their home court in Basel to the higher-ranked (#5) Lugano Tigers. McCrory scored 11 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 32 minutes. He has relatively good stats this year: 13.2ppg, 3.4rpg and 2.6apg in the nine games. McCrory has both Canadian and Irish nationalities.

   #7. Orel Lev (195-SG-93, currently plays in Israel) contributed to a Hapoel Kfar Saba's surprising victory against the second-ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata 80-73 in the Israeli National League (second division) in Tuesday night's game. He scored 5 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 4 assists. Lev's total stats this season are: 6.7ppg, 3.7rpg and 1.3apg.
