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 an experienced former international guard Donnie McGrath (193-84, agency: Diamond Sports, college: Providence, currently plays in Basketball Champions League). He was the major contributor in a 1-point AEK Athens' victory against the fourth-ranked Juventus (8-6) 78-77 in the Basketball Champions League in Wednesday night's game. McGrath recorded 14 points in a mere 19 minutes on the court. AEK Athens (9-5) is placed second in group E. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. McGrath has relatively good stats this year: 11.0ppg, 3.0rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 28.6%, 3FGP: 58.3% and FT: 88.9% in three games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. McGrath played for the Irish senior national team nine years ago. Strangely he has never played in Ireland.

Brian Fitzpatrick
Brian Fitzpatrick
   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Brian Fitzpatrick (203-89, also represented by Diamond Sports, college: Bucknell, currently plays in Czech Republic). Fitzpatrick could not help Prostejov (8-14) to beat CEZ Nymburk (21-1). He recorded 6 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. The second-placed Prostejov (8-14) was crushed 100-58 on the road by the leading CEZ Nymburk in the Places 7-12 group. It was Prostejov's sixth consecutive loss in a row. This season Fitzpatrick averages: 8.0ppg, 6.6rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 53.6%, 3FGP: 22.2% and FT: 66.7%. He is a naturalized American. Fitzpatrick is in the roster of the Irish senior national team. Apparently he has never played in Ireland.

Cian Hickey
Cian Hickey
   #3. The Irish player who performed third best last week abroad was former U18 international point guard Cian Hickey (183-96, currently plays in United Kingdom). He managed to help Manchester Magic in a victory against the ninth-ranked Leicester Warriors (6-10) crushing them 96-58 in the British NBL D1 (second division) in Saturday night's game. Hickey scored only 4 points and added 3 assists in 11 minutes. Manchester Magic (7-2) is placed third in the NBL D1. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. This year Hickey's overall stats are: 2.5ppg, 1.2apg, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 75.0% in six games. He played for the Irish U18 national team three years ago.

Conor Quinn
Conor Quinn
   #4. Guard Conor Quinn (185-95, currently plays in NAIA) was not able to help the Mayville State University (0-0) in their game against the Bellevue University (3-1) in the NStar. Quinn scored only 4 points. his team was badly defeated 73-55 in Bellevue by the University. Quinn's total stats this season are: 2.5ppg and 1.2apg. He is also Irish national team player.


The list of other players, who all have Irish passport but never been selected to any of Irish national teams:

   #1. Ian O'Leary (201-F-86, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in Spain) led Baloncesto Fuenlabrada to a victory against the fourth-ranked Movil Estudiantes (12-5) 103-97 in a derby game in the Spanish Liga Endesa last Saturday. O'Leary scored 15 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Montakit Fuenlabrada (9-10) is placed ninth in the Liga Endesa. It's O'Leary's first season with the team. This year he averages: 6.1ppg and 3.5rpg. O'Leary is a naturalized American. Apparently he has never played in Ireland.

   #2. Andrew James Ogilvy (211-C-88, college: Vanderbilt, currently plays in Australia) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Cairns Taipans (13-13) 90-73 in the Australian NBL on Friday night. Ogilvy had a double-double by scoring 13 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added and 3 steals in 28 minutes. Illawarra Hawks (14-13) are placed second in the NBL. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Ogilvy's first season with the team. This year Ogilvy has relatively solid stats: 11.0ppg, 7.5rpg, 2.8apg, 1.5bpg and 1.1spg in 27 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Irish and Australian.

   #3. Ako Adams (188-G-97, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to an easy victory against the University of North Texas (1-0) 95-80 in the NCAA last Saturday. Adams scored 6 points in 21 minutes. The Rice University has 2-3 conference record this season. This year Adams' overall stats are: 2.9ppg and 1.2apg in 23 games.

   #4. Patrick Carney (185-G-85, college: Chapman, currently plays in Germany) was the major contributor in Schalke's victory against the second-ranked Herzoege Wolfenbuettel (14-2) 88-81 in the German ProB (third division) on Sunday night. He scored 21 points. FC Schalke 04 (9-9) is placed sixth in North group. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This season Carney has relatively solid stats: 13.8ppg, 2.9rpg and 3.2apg. He is a naturalized American. Interesting that Carney has never played in Ireland.
