#1. This week's number one is an international center Dominique Allen (192-89, college: ORU). She led Meccanica NB to a victory over the tenth-ranked Calabria (0-2) 63-56 in the Italian A2 (12th division) in Sunday night's game.
Allen was MVP of the game. She scored 16 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 28 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Allen's first season in pro basketball. Meccanica Nova Bologna (1-1) is placed seventh in South group.
But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.
It's Allen's first year with the team.
She has individually a very good season with high stats. Allen averages: 18.0ppg, 9.5rpg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 47.2% in the two games she played so far.
She played for the British senior national team years ago.
#2. Second place goes to an international forward Louella Tomlinson (193-88, agency: Regeneracom Sports, college: St.Mary's, CA). Tomlinson contributed to an easy victory against the 11th-ranked College Italia (0-2) crushing them 79-45 in the Italian A2 (12th division) last Sunday.
She scored 14 points and blocked 3 shots; not bad, considering it's only Tomlinson's second season in pro basketball. Saces Dike Napoli (1-1) is placed eighth in South group.
But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen.
It's Tomlinson's first year with the team.
Tomlinson is ranked first on the list of the best blockers in the league.
This season she has very high stats. Tomlinson averages: 16.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 4.5bpg, 2FGP: 64.7%(11-17) and FT: 76.9%.
She has a dual citizenship: Australian and British.
Despite Tomlinson played previously for the Australian university national team, she played also for the British national team in 2012.
#3. The British player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Rachel Vanderwal (176-83, college: Boston U.). Vanderwal was the major contributor in an UL Aughinish's victory against the closely-ranked Singleton (0-1) crushing them 61-34 in the Irish Superleague on Saturday night.
She scored 13 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 31 minutes.
University of Limerick Aughinish (2-0) is placed third in the Superleague.
But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go.
Vanderwal is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's her fourth year in UL Aughinish's roster.
Vanderwal is currently second on the list of top scorers with 18.5ppg.
This year her other stats are: 6.0rpg, 1.5apg, 1.5spg, 3FGP: 66.7% and FT: 75.0% in the two games.
Vanderwal is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and British.
Despite she played previously for the Canadian national team, Vanderwal played also for the British national team in 2012.
#4. Forward Mary Durojaye (187-90, college: Robert Morris), who plays in the Italian A1 could not help Priolo (0-1) to beat C.U.S. Chieti (1-0). Her contribution was not very remarkable in Saturday's game.
Durojaye recorded only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. It was his first game for Priolo this season.
Priolo was defeated 71-60 on the road by the leading C.U.S. Chieti.
Durojaye is also British university national team player.
#5. International center Azania Stewart (195-89, college: Florida) was not able to help Caja Rural (0-1) in their game against Rivas Ecopolis (1-0) in the Spanish LFB. She did not have that impressive stats last Saturday.
Stewart recorded only 2 points in 11 minutes. It was his first game for Caja Rural this season.
Caja Rural was crushed 95-72 in Rivas by the higher-ranked (#5) Ecopolis.
Stewart is currently fifth on the league's list of best blockers with 1.0bpg.
She used to play for the British national team
earlier this year.
