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 Lithuania). He contributed to Zalgiris' victory against the seventh-ranked Siauliai (7-7) 78-68 in the Lithuanian LKL in Monday night's game. McGrath scored 6 points and added 6 assists in 17 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Zalgiris this season. His team is placed third in the LKL. So far his team won all eight games in the Regular Season. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. McGrath is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish senior national team five years ago. Strangely McGrath 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). Mullins led Chalons-Reims to a victory against the seventh-ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (14-10) 96-88 in the French ProB (second division) in Saturday night's game. He scored 13 points, made 4 passes and 3 steals. Chalons-Reims (16-8) is placed third in the ProB. Mullins is ranked third on the list of the most steals in the league. This season he averages: 8.0ppg, 2.6rpg, 3.9apg, 2.1spg, 2FGP: 49.0%, 3FGP: 35.1% and FT: 64.0%. Mullins is a naturalized American. He played for the Irish national team in 2009. Apparently Mullins has never played in Ireland.

Conor Grace
Conor Grace
   #3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Conor Grace (210-82, college: Davidson, currently plays in Sweden). He contributed to an easy victory against the third-ranked Sodertalje Kings (21-8) 78-63 in the Swedish Basketligan last Tuesday. Grace scored 6 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 24 minutes. LF Basket (14-16) is placed eighth in the Basketligan. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This year Grace's overall stats are: 6.7ppg, 7.0rpg, 3.3apg, 2FGP: 44.4%, 3FGP: 44.4% in the three games he played so far. Former DCU St.Vincents Dublin starter played for the Irish national team four years ago.

Mark Reynolds
Mark Reynolds
   #4. Forward Mark Reynolds (197-84, currently plays in United Kingdom), who plays in the British BBL could not help one of league's weakest teams Durham Wildcats to beat Plymouth Raiders (16-8). He recorded 7 points. Durham Wildcats was defeated 104-100 on the road by the higher-ranked Plymouth Raiders (#3). This season Reynolds averages only 1.3ppg. He used to play for the Irish national team back in 2007.


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) led Oviedo CB to an overtime victory against the closely-ranked CB Guadalajara (10-6) 98-91 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) last Saturday. He recorded a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 14 rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Hanley's third season in pro basketball. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Oviedo Club Baloncesto (12-4) is placed first in the LEB Silver. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Hanley's first year with the team. Hanley is ranked first on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Hanley averages: 18.6ppg, 11.9rpg and 1.5spg. 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 (10-12) in their last game. Despite his good performance Blusens Monbus lost 77-84 on the road to the lower-ranked (#13) CB Canarias. Kendall recorded 11 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 38 minutes. Kendall has relatively good stats this year: 13.1ppg, 5.9rpg, 1.6apg and 1.1spg in the 22 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.
