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 led Glasgow Rocks to a victory over the closely-ranked Sheffield Sharks (17-12) crushing them 84-55 in the British BBL in Friday night's game. Achara was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 24 points and getting 10 rebounds. Achara also added 6 assists in 30 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Glasgow Rocks (17-11) is placed third in the BBL. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Achara has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 15.4ppg, 7.9rpg, 2.7apg, 1.5bpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 52.7% and FT: 84.6% in 28 games he played so far.

Reilly contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Sheffield Sharks (17-12) crushing them 84-55. He recorded 10 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. It's Reilly's first season with the team. Reilly's overall stats this year are: 2.7ppg, 1.1rpg, 2FGP: 44.4%, 3FGP: 34.8% and FT: 42.9%. He played for the Scottish national team in 2014.

   #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. He played also in the last British BBL game facing Lee Reilly (above) in the other team. Bunyan contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Sheffield Sharks (17-12) crushing them 84-55. He recorded 6 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 27 minutes. Bunyan has been at the team for four years. This season Bunyan's overall stats are: 5.2ppg, 1.4rpg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 45.5%, 3FGP: 28.0% and FT: 75.0% in 28 games.

   #4. Forward Alasdair Fraser (201-92, agency: Court Side, college: Maine, currently plays in Germany). He could not help Ehingen/Urspringschule (10-21) to beat Hamburg (14-16). Fraser scored 8 points. Ehingen/Urspringschule was defeated 88-78 on the road by the higher-ranked Hamburg (#9). The Regular Season already ended. Fraser has relatively good stats this season: 10.7ppg, 4.4rpg, 1.6apg and 1.1bpg. He used to play for the Scottish national team back in 2013.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Scottish passport:
