Here is the weekly review of the top performing Scottish players, who play currently abroad.


Kieron Achara
Kieron Achara
   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Kieron Achara (208-83, agency: Two Points, college: Duquesne, currently plays in Greece). He led Kavala to a victory against the closely-ranked Kolossos (4-7) 86-72 in the Greek A1 in Saturday night's game. Achara scored 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 32 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Kavala this season. His team is placed 12th in the A1. Achara has a dual citizenship: Scottish and Nigerian. He played for the Scottish senior national team eight years ago.

Gareth Murray
Gareth Murray
   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Gareth Murray (201-84, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC, currently plays in United Kingdom). Murray contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Cheshire Phoenix (6-10) 95-78 in the British BBL last Sunday. He scored 11 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and dished 7 assists. Glasgow Rocks (9-7) is placed sixth in the BBL. Murray has relatively good stats this season: 14.1ppg, 6.7rpg, 2.9apg, 2FGP: 56.1%(60-107), 3FGP: 31.9% and FT: 88.1%. He is in the roster of the Scottish senior national team.

Alasdair Fraser
Alasdair Fraser
   #3. The Scottish player who performed third best last week abroad was former U18 international forward Alasdair Fraser (201-92, currently plays college basketball in the States). Fraser contributed to Maine's victory against the Boston University 63-58 in the NCAA on Wednesday night. He scored 17 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and made 3 blocks in 32 minutes. The University of Maine has 1-0 conference record this season. This year Fraser has relatively solid stats: 14.1ppg, 6.7rpg, 2.9apg, 2FGP: 56.1%(60-107), 3FGP: 31.9% and FT: 88.1% in the 16 games he played so far. He played for the Scottish U18 national team three 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 and both played together in the last British BBL game. Grieve managed to help Glasgow Rocks in a victory against the closely-ranked Cheshire Phoenix (6-10) 95-78. He scored only 2 points. This year Grieve averages just 1.3ppg in the three 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 (0-1) to beat the University of Michigan (1-0). Marcotullio scored 5 points. The Northwestern was crushed 94-66 at home by the University of Michigan. It's Marcotullio's fourth season with the team. He has reliable stats this year: 14.1ppg, 6.7rpg and 2.9apg. Marcotullio is a naturalized American. Strangely he has never played in Scotland.

Jonny Bunyan (182-PG-92) plays for Glasgow Rocks in British BBL
Eoghan Dover (185-G/F-89) plays for Worcester Wolves in British BBL
