#4. Guard Dale Grieve (190-92, currently plays in United Kingdom) is a teammate of previously mentioned Gareth Murray. But that was another game of his team in British BBL which we would like to mention.
Grieve, who plays in the British BBL could not help one of league's weakest teams Glasgow Rocks (10-8) to beat Plymouth Raiders (11-5). He did not have that impressive stats last Sunday.
Grieve scored only 3 points in 1 minutes on the court.

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 (1-2) to beat the University of Minnesota (3-0). His contribution was not very remarkable in Sunday's game.
Marcotullio scored only 3 points.
The Northwestern was badly defeated 69-51 on the road by the University of Minnesota.
It's Marcotullio's fourth season with the team.
His stats this year are: 11.5ppg and 3.0rpg.
