Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Irish who are currently playing 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 contributed to PAOK's victory against the league leader Olympiacos (13-1) 76-71 in the Greek A1 in Sunday night's game. McGrath scored 10 points and added 6 passes in 40 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. PAOK Thessaloniki (9-5) is placed fourth in the A1. It's McGrath's first season with the team. He has relatively good stats this year: 14.1ppg, 2.3rpg, 3.7apg, 2FGP: 55.4%(41-74), 3FGP: 37.0% and FT: 79.1% in the 14 games he played so far. 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), who plays in the British BBL. O'Reilly could not help Plymouth Raiders (13-6) in their last game. Despite his good performance Plymouth Raiders was badly defeated 98-81 on the road by the one of league's weakest teams (#11) Durham Wildcats. O'Reilly scored 12 points in 34 minutes. This year O'Reilly has relatively solid stats: 13.6ppg, 6.4rpg, 2.8apg, 2FGP: 58.1%(72-124), 3FGP: 36.3% and FT: 77.8% in the 19 games. He 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 was not able to help Chalons-Reims (14-6) in their game against Fos Ouest (11-9) in the French ProB (second division). Mullins scored 8 points, made 3 passes and 5 steals in 31 minutes. Chalons-Reims lost 53-65 at home to the lower-ranked (#9) Fos Ouest. They ended the series of five consecutive victories. Mullins is currently fifth on the list of most steals with 2.0spg. This year he also averages: 7.8ppg, 2.7rpg, 4.3apg, 2FGP: 49.4%, 3FGP: 34.7% and FT: 70.6% in the 20 games. Mullins is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish national team four years ago. Apparently Mullins has never played in Ireland.

Sean McCarthy
Sean McCarthy
   #4. Center Sean McCarthy (208-93, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to an easy victory against the Fisher College (13-3) crushing them 108-69 in the NCAA in Wednesday night's game. McCarthy had a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting 12 rebounds in 20 minutes. The New Jersey Institute of Technology has 3-0 conference record this season. So far his team won all three games in the conference. McCarthy has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 16.2ppg, 8.6rpg and 1.2apg in the 11 games. McCarthy used to play for the Irish U16 national team back in 2009.

Mark Reynolds
Mark Reynolds
   #5. Former international forward Mark Reynolds (197-84, currently plays in United Kingdom) managed to help Durham Wildcats in a victory against the seventh-ranked Cheshire Phoenix (7-12) 94-82 in the British BBL last Sunday. He scored only 2 points in 7 minutes on the court. Durham Wildcats (7-13) is placed second from the bottom (#11) in the BBL. This year Reynolds averages just 0.9ppg in the 17 games. He used to play for the Irish national team six 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 (9-10) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his good performance Blusens Monbus was defeated 79-73 on the road by the lower-ranked Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (#16). Kendall was the top scorer with 14 points. He also added 5 rebounds. This season Kendall has relatively solid stats: 12.9ppg, 5.7rpg, 1.8apg and 1.1spg. 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 a victory against the closely-ranked Clinicas Rincon (9-5) 67-54 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) in Saturday night's game. Hanley recorded a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting 12 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Oviedo Club Baloncesto (10-3) is placed second in the LEB Silver. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. Hanley is the league's top scorer and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Hanley averages: 18.0ppg, 11.2rpg and 1.3spg. He is a naturalized American. Apparently Hanley has never played in Ireland.

   #3. Mihajlo Pesic (206-F/C-81, agency: Three Eye Sports, currently plays in Cyprus) was not able to help AEL (5-11) in their game against Keravnos (13-3) in the Cypriot Division A. Despite his very good performance on Wednesday night He recorded a double-double by scoring 14 points and getting 11 rebounds. Pesic is currently fourth on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (second place). This season he has very high stats. Pesic averages: 16.2ppg, 8.6rpg and 1.2apg. He is another player who holds two passports: Irish and Serbian.

   #4. Ben Altit (208-PF-93, agency: Avi Zilberman, college: Bryant, currently plays in Israel) managed to help Bnei Eshet Tours Hasharon to win against the league outsider Hapoel Holon (5-10) crushing them 103-77 in the Israeli Winner League last Sunday. He scored only 2 points. Bnei Eshet Tours Hasharon (7-8) is placed seventh in the Winner League. This season Altit averages just 1.4ppg.

   #5. Experienced Tony McCrory (199-G/F-77, college: Simon Fraser, currently plays in Switzerland) contributed to Starwings' victory against the league outsider SAM Massagno (3-13) 83-74 in the Swiss LNA on Saturday night. He recorded 5 points in 30 minutes. Starwings Basket Regio Basel (4-12) is placed eighth in the LNA. It was his team's first victory after three consecutive loses. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. McCrory is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fifth year in Starwings' roster. McCrory has reliable stats this season: 12.3ppg, 3.2rpg and 2.5apg in the 15 games he played so far. He has both Canadian and Irish nationalities.

   #6. Orel Lev (195-SG-93, currently plays in Israel) was not able to secure a victory for Hapoel Kfar Saba in their game against Ironi Nahariya in the Israeli National League (second division). Lev cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points. His team was crushed by 27 points 99-72. Lev's overall stats this season are: 3.8ppg and 3.2rpg.
