Gareth Murray
Gareth Murray
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Gareth Murray (201-84, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC, currently plays in United Kingdom). He led Glasgow Rocks to a victory over the league outsider Liverpool Mersey Tigers (0-15) crushing them 109-72 in the British BBL in Sunday night's game. Murray was MVP of the game. He scored 21 points, had 7 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 21 minutes on the court. Glasgow Rocks (8-7) is placed sixth in the BBL. Murray has relatively good stats this year: 14.3ppg, 6.5rpg, 2.6apg, 2FGP: 56.6%(56-99), 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 88.1% in the 15 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Scottish senior national team.

Alasdair Fraser

   #2. Second place goes to former U18 international forward Alasdair Fraser (201-92, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA. He could not help the Maine in their last game. Despite Fraser's good performance the Maine was crushed 94-69 on the road by the Marist College. He scored 12 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 34 minutes. This year Fraser has relatively solid stats: 14.3ppg, 6.5rpg, 2.6apg, 2FGP: 56.6%(56-99), 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 88.1% in the 15 games. He played for the Scottish U18 national team in 2010.

Jonny Bunyan
Jonny Bunyan
   #3. The Scottish player who performed third best last week abroad was former U18 international point guard Jonny Bunyan (182-92, currently plays in United Kingdom) is a teammate of previously mentioned Gareth Murray and both played together in the last British BBL game. Bunyan managed to help Glasgow Rocks to win against the league outsider Liverpool Mersey Tigers (0-15) crushing them 109-72. He scored only 4 points and added 3 assists. This season Bunyan averages: 0.8ppg. He played for the Scottish U18 national team two years ago.

Dale Grieve
Dale Grieve
   #4. Guard Dale Grieve (190-92, currently plays in United Kingdom) is a teammate of previously mentioned Gareth Murray. He played also in the last British BBL game facing Jonny Bunyan (above) in the other team. Grieve contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider Liverpool Mersey Tigers (0-15) crushing them 109-72. He scored only 2 points in 9 minutes on the court. This year Grieve's overall stats are: 1.0ppg and 1.5rpg in the two games. He used to play for the Scottish U18 national team back in 2010.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Scottish passport:

   #1. Alex Marcotullio (190-G-91, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA could not help the Northwestern in their last game on Friday. Despite Marcotullio's good performance the Northwestern was edged 70-68 at home by the Stanford University. He recorded 10 points, 3 assists and 3 steals. It's Marcotullio's fourth season with the team. This year Marcotullio has relatively solid stats: 14.3ppg, 6.5rpg and 2.6apg. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Marcotullio has never played in Scotland.
