Omer Asik
Omer Asik
   #1. This week's number one is former international center Omer Asik (213-86, currently plays in NBA). He led Houston Rockets to a victory against the Charlotte Bobcats (11-35) 109-95 in the NBA in Saturday night's game. Asik had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 15 rebounds. He also added 2 blocks in 38 minutes on the court. The Houston Rockets have 26-23 record this season. It's Asik's first year with the team. Asik has relatively good stats this year: 10.2ppg, 11.4rpg, 1.1bpg, 2FGP: 53.6% and FT: 54.6% in the 49 games he played so far. He played for the Turkish senior national team two years ago.

Ersan Ilyasova
Ersan Ilyasova
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Ersan Ilyasova (207-87, currently plays in NBA).

He recorded a double-double by scoring 18 points and getting 12 rebounds. Ilyasova also added 3 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks have 25-21 record this season.

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), who plays in the NBA. Kanter could not help the Utah Jazz (26-22) to beat the Houston Rockets (26-23). He scored 9 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 20 minutes. But the Utah Jazz was crushed 125-80 at home by the Rockets. This year Kanter's overall stats are: 6.1ppg, 4.0rpg, 2FGP: 53.4% and FT: 71.9% in the 46 games. He is also a member of the Turkish senior national team.

Turkoglu's contribution was not very remarkable in Wednesday's game. He recorded only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The Orlando Magic was badly defeated 113-97 on the road by the Knicks. It was Magic's ninth consecutive loss in a row. This season Turkoglu averages: 3.2ppg, 2.2rpg and 1.7apg. He used to play for the Turkish national team back in 2011.

Deniz Kilicli
Deniz Kilicli
   #5.

Despite Kaspar's good performance the W.Kentucky (#4) was badly defeated 72-53 on the road by the Middle Tennessee State University. He scored 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 31 minutes. It was W.Kentucky's third consecutive loss in a row. This year Kaspar's total stats are: 3.2ppg, 2.2rpg and 1.7apg in the 10 games he played so far.

   #2. Baris Aktas (193-F-91, currently plays in Romania) managed to help CSU Atlassib Sibiu in a victory against the league outsider CS Dinamo Bucuresti (0-20) crushing them 110-46 in the Romanian Liga Nationala in Saturday night's game. He scored 5 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 26 minutes. CSU Atlassib Sibiu (10-10) is placed tenth in the Liga Nationala. It's Aktas' first season with the team.
