Kieron Achara
Kieron Achara
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international power forward Kieron Achara (208-83, agency: Two Points, college: Duquesne, currently plays in United Kingdom).

He scored 19 points, had 7 rebounds, passed 4 assists and added 4 blocks in 32 minutes on the court. Glasgow Rocks (15-5) is placed third in the BBL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row.

   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Gareth Murray (201-84, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC, currently plays in United Kingdom) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kieron Achara. But that was another game of his team in British BBL which we would like to mention. Murray was the main contributor in a Glasgow Rocks' victory against the ninth-ranked Bristol Acadamy Flyers (8-14) 74-60. He was the best player in that game. Murray scored 20 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 3 assists. Glasgow Rocks (15-5) is placed third in the BBL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Murray has relatively solid stats: 11.8ppg, 4.8rpg, 2.1apg, 2FGP: 66.7%(66-99), 3FGP: 33.9% and FT: 81.0%.

Jonathan Bunyan
   #3. The Scottish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international point guard Jonathan Bunyan (182-92, currently plays in United Kingdom) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kieron Achara. However that was another game of his team in British BBL which brought him to that list. Bunyan contributed to a Glasgow Rocks' victory against the tenth-ranked Cheshire Phoenix (4-14) 95-82. He recorded 8 points in 20 minutes. Glasgow Rocks (15-5) is placed third in the BBL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. It's Bunyan's fourth season with the team. This year Bunyan averages: 5.3ppg, 1.6rpg, 1.4apg, 3FGP: 27.9% in 19 games. Former Falkirk Clark Eriksson Fury starter played for the Scottish national team three years ago.

   #4. Forward Alasdair Fraser (201-92, agency: Court Side, college: Maine, currently plays in Germany) was the major contributor in Ehingen/Urspringschule's victory against one of league's weakest teams ETB Wohnbau (5-18) 75-74 in the German ProA (second division) in Saturday night's game. He recorded 16 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Team Ehingen Urspring (9-15) is placed 12th in the ProA. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. It's Fraser's first season with the team. Fraser has reliable stats this year: 10.9ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.5apg and 1.1bpg. He used to play for the Scottish national team back in 2013.

   #5. Former U18 international forward Grant Mackay (201-94, currently plays in NCAA2) helped St.Anselm College win their game against the St.Michael's College 95-86 in the NCAA2 last Saturday. Mackay scored 8 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 24 minutes. The St.Anselm College has a solid 12-7 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA2 Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Mackay has been at the team for four years.
