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), who plays in the Greek A1. McGrath could not help one of league's weakest teams PAOK (8-3) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his very good performance PAOK was defeated 82-68 on the road by the higher-ranked Panionios (#3). McGrath was the top scorer with 16 points. He also added 7 assists. McGrath has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.2ppg, 2.4rpg, 3.5apg, 2FGP: 61.8%(34-55), 3FGP: 40.4% and FT: 81.1%. McGrath is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish senior national team five 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). O'Reilly led Plymouth Raiders to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Glasgow Rocks (9-8) crushing them 97-69 in the British BBL in Sunday night's game. He scored 14 points and added 5 passes. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (11-5) is placed fourth in the BBL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. It's O'Reilly's first season with the team. O'Reilly has relatively good stats this year: 14.4ppg, 6.8rpg, 3.0apg, 2FGP: 57.7%(64-111), 3FGP: 37.3% and FT: 79.4%. He played for the Irish national team in 2009.

Mark Reynolds
Mark Reynolds
   #3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Mark Reynolds (197-84, currently plays in United Kingdom). Reynolds was not able to help Durham Wildcats (5-12) in their game against Surrey Heat (13-3) in the British BBL. He did not have that impressive stats last Saturday. Reynolds scored only 2 points in 11 minutes. Durham Wildcats lost 76-84 in Guildford to the much higher-ranked (#3) Surrey Heat. This year Reynolds' overall stats are: 0.9ppg, 1.1rpg, 2FGP: 27.8% in the 14 games he played so far. He played for the Irish national team six years ago.

Sean McCarthy
Sean McCarthy
   #4. Center Sean McCarthy (208-93, currently plays college basketball in the States) was not able to secure a victory for the NJIT (1-0) in their game against the Lafayette College (0-0) in the NCAA. McCarthy scored only 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The NJIT was badly defeated 83-66 in Easton, PA by the Lafayette College. McCarthy's total stats this season are: 0.9ppg and 1.1rpg. 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 14th-ranked Blancos de Rueda (6-10) crushing them 89-56 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. He recorded 17 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in 31 minutes. Blusens Monbus Obradoiro CAB (9-7) is placed seventh in the ACB. Kendall has relatively good stats this year: 13.6ppg, 5.4rpg, 1.8apg and 1.3spg in the 16 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.

   #2. Andrew James Ogilvy (211-C-88, college: Vanderbilt, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Germany could not help Brose Baskets Bamberg (0-2) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the eighth-placed Brose Baskets Bamberg lost 67-82 on the road to the leading Real Madrid in the group E of Euroleague. Ogilvy scored 15 points and blocked 3 shots in a mere 18 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. It's Ogilvy's first year with the team. This season Ogilvy's overall stats are: 6.0ppg and 2.0rpg in the four games. He is another player who holds two passports: Australian and Irish.
