We bring you last week's top performances from Irish who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


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 a victory against the eighth-ranked Ikaros (6-9) 85-80 in the Greek A1 in Sunday night's game. McGrath scored 11 points, had 5 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 40 minutes on the court. PAOK Thessaloniki (10-5) is placed fourth in the A1. McGrath has relatively good stats this year: 13.9ppg, 2.5rpg, 3.9apg, 2FGP: 54.9%, 3FGP: 36.8% and FT: 79.1% in the 15 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. McGrath played for the Irish senior national team five years ago. Strangely he has never played in Ireland.

Bryan Mullins
Bryan Mullins
   #2. Second place goes to 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 (14-7) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite his good performance Chalons-Reims was defeated 83-75 on the road by the lower-ranked SPO Rouen (#10). Mullins was the second best scorer with 12 points. He also added 4 rebounds. Mullins is currently fourth on the list of most steals. This season he averages: 8.0ppg, 2.7rpg, 4.1apg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 48.3%, 3FGP: 36.0% and FT: 67.5%. Mullins is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish national team in 2009. Apparently Mullins has never played in Ireland.

Colin O'Reilly
Colin O'Reilly
   #3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Colin O'Reilly (200-84, college: Post, currently plays in United Kingdom). He managed to help UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders in a victory against the ninth-ranked Cheshire Phoenix (8-14) 100-93 in the British BBL last Sunday. O'Reilly recorded only 4 points in 25 minutes. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (14-6) is placed fourth in the BBL. It's O'Reilly's first season with the team. This year he has relatively solid stats: 13.2ppg, 6.2rpg, 2.7apg, 2FGP: 58.3%(74-127), 3FGP: 36.3% and FT: 77.8% in the 20 games. O'Reilly played for the Irish national team four years ago.

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 (8-14) crushing them 108-69 in the NCAA on Wednesday night. He recorded a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting 12 rebounds. The New Jersey Institute of Technology has 3-1 conference record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. McCarthy has reliable stats this season: 13.2ppg, 6.2rpg and 2.7apg. He 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) was not able to help Durham Wildcats (7-15) in their game against Newcastle Eagles (17-2) in the British BBL. Reynolds recorded only 4 points in 9 minutes on the court. Durham Wildcats was crushed 106-65 in Newcastle by the leading Eagles. This year Reynolds averages just 1.0ppg in the 19 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 (9-11) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Kendall's good performance Blusens Monbus was defeated 83-77 on the road by the lower-ranked UCAM Murcia (#12). He scored 12 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. This season Kendall has relatively solid stats: 12.9ppg, 5.7rpg, 1.7apg and 1.1spg. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.

   #2. Mihajlo Pesic (206-F/C-81, agency: Three Eye Sports, currently plays in Cyprus) was the major contributor in AEL's victory against the league outsider Omonia (3-14) 89-75 in the Cypriot Division A on Saturday night. Pesic scored 25 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 38 minutes. Proteas Danoi AEL Limassol (6-12) is placed sixth in the Division A. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Pesic is ranked fourth on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best rebounders (second place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Pesic averages: 16.9ppg, 8.7rpg and 1.3apg in the 12 games he played so far. He is another player who holds two passports: Irish and Serbian.
