Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Scots who are currently playing abroad.


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 against the tenth-ranked Manchester Giants (6-12) 92-82 in the British BBL in Friday night's game. Murray recorded 17 points, 7 rebounds, 9 assists and made 2 blocks in 35 minutes on the court. Glasgow Rocks (10-8) is placed fifth in the BBL. Murray has relatively good stats this year: 14.3ppg, 6.7rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 52.9%, 3FGP: 35.0% in the 18 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Scottish senior national team.

Alasdair Fraser
Alasdair Fraser
   #2. Second place goes to former U18 international forward Alasdair Fraser (201-92, currently plays college basketball in the States). Fraser contributed to an easy victory against the University of Maryland -Baltimore County 81-66 in the NCAA last Saturday. He scored 17 points, grabbed 6 boards, handed out 3 passes and blocked 2 shots. The University of Maine has 2-1 conference record this season. This year Fraser has relatively solid stats: 14.3ppg, 6.7rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 52.9%, 3FGP: 35.0%. He played for the Scottish U18 national team in 2010.

Kieron Achara
Kieron Achara
   #3. The Scottish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Kieron Achara (208-83, agency: Two Points, college: Duquesne, currently plays in Greece). Achara contributed to Kavala's victory against the closely-ranked Kolossos (4-7) 86-72 in the Greek A1 on Saturday night. He scored 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 32 minutes. Enosi Kalathosfairisis Kavalas (3-9) is placed second from the bottom (#13) in the A1. Achara has reliable stats this year: 11.5ppg, 3.0rpg, 2FGP: 54.5% and FT: 66.7% in the two games. He has a dual citizenship: Scottish and Nigerian. Achara played for the Scottish national team eight 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. 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. Glasgow Rocks was crushed 97-69 at home by the higher-ranked (#4) Plymouth Raiders. It's Grieve's first season with the team. This year he averages just 1.8ppg in the four games. Grieve 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 (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. Marcotullio is a naturalized American. Strangely he has never played in Scotland.


Other top Scottish players, who play abroad:

Eoghan Dover (185-G/F-89) plays for Worcester Wolves in British BBL
Taulant Murati (180-PG-92) plays for SAM Massagno in Swiss LNA
Kyle Haldane (185-G-92) plays for Northumbria in British EBL D1
