POSTED BY:
EUROBASKET CENTER
  follow us on Facebook Twitter

We bring you last week's top performances from Turks who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Enes Kanter
Enes Kanter
   #1. This week's number one is former international center Enes Kanter (211-92, college: Kentucky, currently plays in NBA). He led Oklahoma City Thunder to a victory over the Milwaukee Bucks (41-39) crushing them 110-79 in the NBA in Tuesday night's game. Kanter was MVP of the game. He scored 17 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in a mere 15 minutes on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder has 45-34 record this season. There are only three games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Kanter has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 14.4ppg, 6.7rpg, 2FGP: 57.2%(382-668), 3FGP: 13.2% and FT: 79.8% in 69 games he played so far. Kanter played for the Turkish senior national team three years ago.

Ersan Ilyasova
Ersan Ilyasova
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Ersan Ilyasova (208-87, currently plays in NBA). He contributed to an Atlanta Hawks' victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers (51-28) 114-100 in the NBA last Friday. Ilyasova scored 13 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks have 41-38 record this season. There are only three games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Ilyasova has relatively good stats this season: 10.4ppg, 5.8rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 44.8%, 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 80.4%. Former Yesilyurt Istanbul starter played for the Turkish national team in 2015.

Izzet Turkyilmaz
Izzet Turkyilmaz
   #3. The Turkish player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Izzet Turkyilmaz (212-90, currently plays in Croatia). He managed to help GKK Sibenik in a victory against the closely-ranked Jolly (18-6) 87-77 in a derby game in the Croatian A1 on Saturday night. Turkyilmaz scored 5 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, passed 6 assists and added 3 blocks in 19 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. GKK Sibenik (20-4) is placed first in the A1. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This year Turkyilmaz's overall stats are: 6.1ppg, 4.9rpg, 1.7apg, 1.5bpg, 2FGP: 64.8%(35-54), 3FGP: 42.3% and FT: 66.7% in 19 games. He played for the Turkish national team four years ago.

Engin Atsur
Engin Atsur
   #4. An experienced guard Engin Atsur (190-84, agency: BeoBasket, college: N.Carolina St., currently plays in Germany). Atsur could not help ALBA Berlin (18-11) to beat EWE Baskets (15-12). He did not have that impressive stats last Sunday. Atsur recorded only 2 points in 9 minutes on the court. ALBA Berlin lost 81-93 on the road to the lower-ranked (#7) EWE Baskets. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. It's Atsur's first season with the team. This year his total stats are: 7.9ppg, 1.6rpg and 2.7apg in 29 games. Atsur has a dual citizenship: Turkish and German. He used to play for the Turkish national team back in 2009.


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

   #1. Samir Zekiqi (202-F-95, currently plays in Kosovo) could not help Trepca (5-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Zekiqi's very good performance Trepca was crushed 109-86 on the road by the lower-ranked Peja (#3). He was the top scorer with 25 points. Zekiqi also added 4 rebounds (went 5 for 5 at the free throw line). There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Zekiqi's first season with the team. He has individually a very good year with high stats. Zekiqi averages: 16.2ppg, 3.6rpg and 2.3apg. He has a dual citizenship: Turkish and Kosovan.

   #2. Baris Aktas (192-SF-91, agency: 011 Sports, currently plays in Romania) contributed to an easy victory against the fourth-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (6-18) 87-72 in the Romanian Liga Nationala on Saturday night. Aktas scored 6 points. SCM CSU Craiova (8-16) is placed second in Places 7-10 group. There are only two games left until the end of the Second Stage. Aktas has averaged so far 1.9ppg and 1.3apg. He is another player who holds two passports: Turkish and Romanian.

   #3. Genc Sefaja (196-G/F-92, currently plays in Germany) was not able to help Kaiserslautern (10-16) in their last game. Despite Sefaja's good performance the ninth-placed Kaiserslautern (10-16) was crushed 87-63 on the opponent's court by the higher-ranked (#3) Koblenz in the South-West group. He scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 31 minutes. It was Kaiserslautern's third consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended. This year Sefaja has relatively solid stats: 11.4ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.2apg and 1.5spg in 14 games he played so far. He has both Turkish and German nationalities.

   #4. Abdurrahman Circiroglu (193-PF-97, currently plays in Germany) managed to help Baskets Vilsbiburg to win against the 11th-ranked Topstar (10-16) crushing them 86-64 in the German Regionalliga (fourth division) last Saturday. Circiroglu recorded only 2 points. Baskets Vilsbiburg (18-8) is placed second in South-East group. The Regular Season already ended. Circiroglu has been at the team for four years.
