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), who plays in the Greek A1. He could not help Kavala (5-14) in their last game. Despite Achara's very good performance Kavala was badly defeated 94-76 at home by the leading Olympiacos. He was the top scorer with 16 points. Achara also added 5 rebounds in 36 minutes on the court. This year Achara averages: 9.9ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 63.6%(21-33) and FT: 77.8% in the nine games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Scottish and Nigerian. Achara played for the Scottish senior national team eight years ago.

Alasdair Fraser
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 was not able to help the Maine (6-10) in their last game. Despite Fraser's very good performance the Maine lost 74-79 on the road to the University of New Hampshire. He scored 22 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 39 minutes. It was Maine's third consecutive loss in a row. Fraser's team will play only one more game in the NCAA Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This year Fraser's overall stats are: 9.9ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 63.6%(21-33) and FT: 77.8% in the nine games. He played for the Scottish U18 national team in 2010.

Gareth Murray
Gareth Murray
   #3. The Scottish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international forward Gareth Murray (201-84, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC, currently plays in United Kingdom). Murray led Glasgow Rocks to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Durham Wildcats crushing them 88-66 in the British BBL in Sunday night's game. He scored 11 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Glasgow Rocks (17-9) is placed third in the BBL. Murray has relatively good stats this season: 12.4ppg, 6.0rpg, 3.3apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 48.4%, 3FGP: 37.4% and FT: 89.7%. He is also a member of the Scottish senior national team.

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 Durham Wildcats crushing them 88-66. He scored only 2 points in 6 minutes on the court. It's Grieve's first season with the team. This year Grieve averages just 1.3ppg in the nine 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 (4-12) in their last game on Thursday. Despite his very good performance the Northwestern was defeated 66-59 at home by the The Pennsylvania State University. Marcotullio scored 22 points and added 3 assists. His team will play only one more game in the NCAA Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Marcotullio's fourth season with the team. Marcotullio's overall stats this year are: 9.9ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.3apg. He is a naturalized American. Strangely Marcotullio 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
Kyle Haldane (185-G-92) plays for Northumbria in British EBL D1
Taulant Murati (180-PG-92) plays for SAM Massagno in Swiss LNA
Craig Nicol plays for Medway Park in British EBL D1
John Tehan (185-G-71) plays for St.Mary's in Irish Division 1
