Ersan Ilyasova's double-double lands him Player of the Week award among Turks playing currently abroad - Mar 3, 2013


POSTED BY:
EUROBASKET CENTER
  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Turks who are currently playing abroad.


Ersan Ilyasova
Ersan Ilyasova
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Ersan Ilyasova (207-87, currently plays in NBA). He led Milwaukee Bucks to an overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors (23-37) 122-114 in the NBA in Saturday night's game. Ilyasova was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 29 points and getting 11 rebounds in 42 minutes on the court. The Milwaukee Bucks have 29-28 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. Ilyasova has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 12.0ppg, 6.6rpg, 1.6apg, 2FGP: 46.8%, 3FGP: 43.4% and FT: 77.3% in the 55 games he played so far. Ilyasova played for the Turkish senior national team two years ago.

Enes Kanter
Enes Kanter
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Enes Kanter (208-92, college: Kentucky, currently plays in NBA). He led Utah Jazz to a victory over the Charlotte Bobcats (13-45) crushing them 98-68 in the NBA last Friday. Kanter was the best player in that game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 22 rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Kanter's second season in pro basketball. The Utah Jazz has 32-27 record this season. They ended the series of three consecutive loses. Kanter's overall stats this year are: 6.7ppg, 4.3rpg, 2FGP: 54.3% and FT: 75.9%. He is in the roster of the Turkish senior national team.

Omer Asik
Omer Asik
   #3. The Turkish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international center Omer Asik (213-86, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. Asik could not help the Houston Rockets (32-28) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the Houston Rockets were edged 110-107 on the road by the Milwaukee Bucks. Asik had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 22 rebounds in 31 minutes. Asik has relatively good stats this year: 10.4ppg, 11.7rpg, 1.1bpg, 2FGP: 53.8% and FT: 55.2% in the 60 games. He played for the Turkish national team two years ago.

Deniz Kilicli
Deniz Kilicli
   #4. Forward Deniz Kilicli (206-90, currently plays college basketball in the States) was not able to help the one of league's weakest teams W.Virginia (6-11) in their game against the Baylor University (8-8) in the NCAA. Kilicli recorded 7 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The W.Virginia was edged 65-62 at home by the Baylor University. It was W.Virginia's fourth consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Kilicli's fifth season with the team. This year he has relatively solid stats: 10.4ppg, 11.7rpg and 1.1bpg. Kilicli used to play for the Turkish U20 national team back in 2010.


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) contributed to W.Kentucky's victory against the University of South Alabama (14-6) 79-73 in the NCAA last Thursday. He scored 6 points in 18 minutes. The Western Kentucky University has 10-10 conference record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended in the NCAA. Kaspar has reliable stats this year: 10.4ppg, 11.7rpg and 1.1bpg in the 60 games he played so far.

   #2. Baris Aktas (193-F-91, currently plays in Romania), who plays in the Romanian Liga Nationala could not help CSU Sibiu (12-12) to beat Ploiesti (17-7). He did not beat the league record on Wednesday evening. Aktas scored only 3 points and added 4 passes. CSU Sibiu was defeated 79-66 on the road by the higher-ranked Ploiesti (#5). It's Aktas' first season with the team. His overall stats this year are: 1.5ppg, 1.4rpg and 1.1apg. Aktas has a dual citizenship: Turkish and Romanian.

   #3. Kemal Dincer (190-G, currently studies in the States) was not able to help the TCU (1-14) in their game against the University of Kansas (13-3) in the NCAA. He cannot count it as his best performance. Dincer scored only 2 points in 2 minutes on the court. The TCU was crushed 74-48 in Lawrence, KS by the University of Kansas. It was TCU's sixth consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Dincer's overall stats are: 1.5ppg, 1.4rpg and 1.1apg in the 15 games.
