Here is the weekly review of the top performing Turkish players, who play currently abroad.


Ersan Ilyasova
Ersan Ilyasova
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Ersan Ilyasova (207-87, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Milwaukee Bucks (16-16) in their last game. Despite Ilyasova's very good performance the Milwaukee Bucks were edged 96-94 on the road by the Detroit Pistons. He was the second best scorer with 24 points. Ilyasova also added 5 rebounds in 27 minutes on the court. Ilyasova has relatively good stats this year: 9.0ppg, 5.6rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 41.5%, 3FGP: 39.7% and FT: 76.4% in the 30 games he played so far. He played for the Turkish senior national team two years ago.

Omer Asik
Omer Asik
   #2. Second place goes to former international center Omer Asik (213-86, currently plays in NBA). Asik was the major contributor in a Houston Rockets' victory against the New Orleans Hornets (8-25) 104-92 in the NBA last Wednesday. He scored 21 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The Houston Rockets have 20-14 record this season. This year Asik has relatively solid stats: 10.6ppg, 11.4rpg, 1.1bpg, 2FGP: 52.5% and FT: 55.6%. He played for the Turkish national team in 2011.

Enes Kanter
Enes Kanter
   #3. The Turkish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Enes Kanter (208-92, college: Kentucky, currently plays in NBA). Kanter led Utah Jazz to an easy victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves (15-15) crushing them 106-84 in the NBA on Wednesday night. He scored 15 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 20 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Kanter's second season in pro basketball. The Utah Jazz has 17-18 record this season. This year Kanter's overall stats are: 6.7ppg, 4.3rpg, 2FGP: 54.5% and FT: 71.4% in the 33 games. He is also a member of the Turkish senior national team.

Hidayet Turkoglu
Hidayet Turkoglu
   #4. An experienced forward Hidayet Turkoglu (206-79, currently plays in NBA) was not able to help the Orlando Magic (12-21) in their game against the Miami Heat (22-9) in the NBA. Turkoglu recorded 9 points and added 8 assists. But the Orlando Magic was edged in an overtime 112-110 in Miami by the Heat. It was Magic's eighth consecutive loss in a row. This season Turkoglu averages: 4.8ppg, 3.4rpg and 2.6apg. He used to play for the Turkish national team back in 2011.

Deniz Kilicli
Deniz Kilicli
   #5. Former U20 international forward Deniz Kilicli (206-90, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to W.Virginia's surprising victory against the Eastern Kentucky University (2-0) 74-67 in the NCAA in Sunday night's game. Kilicli scored 10 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 22 minutes. The West Virginia University has 0-2 conference record this season. It's Kilicli's fifth year with the team. He has reliable stats this year: 12.5ppg, 4.1rpg, 1.6apg and 1.4spg in the 17 games. Kilicli used to play for the Turkish U20 national team three years ago.


The list of other players, who all have Turkish passport but never been selected to any of Turkish national teams:

   #1. Kevin Kaspar (183-PG-92, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA could not help the W.Kentucky (4-2) in their last game. Despite Kaspar's good performance the W.Kentucky (#2) lost 67-75 on the road to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He scored 13 points in 36 minutes. This year Kaspar's total stats are: 4.8ppg, 3.4rpg and 2.6apg in the five games he played so far.

   #2. Serkan Inan (198-G-86, currently plays in Sweden) led White Eagles to a victory against the league outsider Nassjo (3-17) 80-67 in the Swedish Basketligan on Thursday night. He scored 15 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. White Eagles Stockholm (5-15) is placed tenth in the Basketligan. It was his team's first victory after seven consecutive loses.
