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


Chantelle Handy
Chantelle Handy
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Chantelle Handy (191-87, college: Marshall, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Turkey. She could not help Mersin (0-1) in their last game. Despite Handy's very good performance Mersin lost 68-80 at home to the second-ranked Tarbes. She had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 10 rebounds. Handy also added 4 assists in 39 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Mersin this season; not bad, considering it's only her third season in pro basketball. Handy is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Dominique Allen
Dominique Allen
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Dominique Allen (192-89, college: ORU, currently plays in Italy). She contributed to an easy victory against the 13th-ranked Consum.it Siena (0-4) crushing them 73-41 in the Italian A2 (12th division) in Saturday night's game. Allen recorded 9 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. Meccanica Nova Bologna (3-1) is placed second in South group. It was her team's third consecutive victory in a row. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's Allen's first year with the team. She has relatively good stats this season: 14.3ppg, 8.8rpg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 49.0%. Allen is in the roster of the British senior national team.

Azania Stewart

   #3. The British player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Azania Stewart (195-89, college: Florida, currently plays in Spain). She was not able to help Caja Rural (1-2) in their game against Perfumerias Avenida (1-1) in the Spanish LFB. Stewart scored 8 points in only 14 minutes. Caja Rural lost 67-76 on their home court in Zamora to the higher-ranked (#5) Perfumerias Avenida. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Stewart averages: 3.3ppg, 2FGP: 36.4% in the three games she played so far. She is also a member of the British senior national team.

Rachel Vanderwal
Rachel Vanderwal
   #4.

She was MVP of the game. Vanderwal recorded 25 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists in 30 minutes. University of Limerick Aughinish (4-0) is placed second in the Superleague. So far her team won all four games in the Regular Season. Vanderwal is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's her fourth year in UL Aughinish's roster.

   #5. International forward Meagan Hoffman (183-82, college: Adams St., currently plays in Ireland) was the major contributor in a DCU Mercy's victory against the closely-ranked TM Hotel Cork (2-1) 68-63 in the Irish Superleague on Saturday night. Hoffman had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 12 rebounds in 34 minutes. It was his first game for DCU Mercy this season. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Her team is placed first in the Superleague. So far DCU Mercy won all four games in the Regular Season. It's Hoffman's first year with the team. She is a naturalized American. Hoffman used to play for the British national team last year.


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

   #1. Louella Tomlinson (193-F-88, agency: Regeneracom Sports, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in Italy) was the major contributor in a Napoli S.Dike's victory against the eighth-ranked Irpino (2-2) 71-56 in the Italian A2 (12th division) in Sunday night's game. She had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 18 rebounds. Tomlinson also added 5 blocks and 3 steals in 38 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only her second season in pro basketball. Saces Dike Napoli (3-1) is placed third in South group. It was her team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Tomlinson's first year with the team. Tomlinson is currently third on the list of best rebounders and also on the list of best blockers (first place). She has individually a very good year with high stats. Tomlinson averages: 16.0ppg, 10.8rpg, 4.3bpg and 1.3spg in the four games she played so far. She has a dual citizenship: Australian and British. Despite Tomlinson's British passport, she currently plays for the Australian university national team and is not eligible to play for the British team.

   #2. Shona Thorburn (178-G-82, college: Utah, currently plays in France), who plays in the French LFB could not help Aix-en-Provence (2-4) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Thorburn's good performance Aix-en-Provence was defeated 70-63 at home by the higher-ranked Perpignan (#6). She scored 14 points, had 8 rebounds and dished 7 assists. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Thorburn's first year with the team. Thorburn is ranked first on the list of the best passers in the league. She has very reliable stats this season: 11.5ppg, 6.7rpg and 5.8apg. Thorburn is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and British.

   #3. Sarah Kershaw (180-SF-85, currently plays in Switzerland) led Helios to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Muraltese (1-3) crushing them 114-54 in the Swiss LNA on Saturday night. Kershaw was MVP of the game. She recorded 23 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals. Sdent Helios VS Basket (4-0) is placed second in the LNA. So far her team won all four games in the Regular Season. This season Kershaw has very high stats. She averages: 18.5ppg, 5.5rpg, 2.0apg and 3.5spg. Kershaw has both British and Swiss nationalities.

   #4. Zane Alilujeva (185-C-87, currently plays in Latvia) was not able to help Liepajas (2-2) in their game against TTT Riga (4-0) in the Latvian LSBL. She scored only 4 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. It was his first game for Liepajas this season. Liepajas was defeated 70-57 on their home court in Liepaja by the higher-ranked TTT Riga (#3). There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Alilujeva has been at the team for four years.
