Chantelle Handy
Chantelle Handy
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Chantelle Handy (191-87, college: Marshall, currently plays in Eurocup). Handy led her Turkish team Mersin to a victory against the fourth-ranked Belfius Namur (0-2) 70-66 in the Eurocup last Wednesday. She scored 16 points and grabbed 5 rebounds; not bad, considering it's only Handy's third season in pro basketball. Mersin BSH Bld (1-1) is placed second in group C. There are only four games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Handy's first year with the team. She has individually a very good season with high stats. Handy averages: 16.0ppg, 7.5rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 38.5%, 3FGP: 58.3%. She is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Kristie Sheils
Kristie Sheils
   #2. Second place goes to U20 international point guard Kristie Sheils (173-91, currently plays in Canada). Sheils was the major contributor in an University of Calgary's victory against the Manitoba (1-1) crushing them 97-66 in the Canadian university league CIS on Saturday night. She scored 18 points in 31 minutes. The University of Calgary has 2-0 record this season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Sheils' first year with the team. Sheils has relatively good stats this season: 12.5ppg, 4.0rpg, 2.5apg, 2.0spg, 3FGP: 41.7% in the two games she played so far. She played for the British U20 national team in 2011.

   #3. The British player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Dominique Allen (192-89, college: ORU, currently plays in Italy). Allen contributed to a 1-point Meccanica NB's victory against the fourth-ranked Ancona (3-2) 55-54 in the Italian A2 (12th division) in Saturday night's game. She scored 13 points, had 8 rebounds and made 2 blocks. Meccanica Nova Bologna (4-1) is placed second in South group. It was her team's fourth 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. This season Allen has relatively solid stats: 14.0ppg, 8.6rpg, 2.4spg, 2FGP: 46.0%. She is also a member of the British senior national team.

Meagan Hoffman
Meagan Hoffman
   #5. International forward Meagan Hoffman (183-82, college: Adams St., currently plays in Ireland) led DCU Mercy to a victory over the fifth-ranked 11890 Killester (2-4) crushing them 72-24 in a derby game in the Irish Superleague in Sunday night's game.

DCU Mercy Dublin (5-0) is placed first in the Superleague. So far her team won all five games in the Regular Season. Hoffman has very impressive stats this year: 18.0ppg, 12.5rpg, 1.5apg and 3.0spg in the two games. She is a naturalized American. Hoffman used to play for the British national team last year.

Azania Stewart

She was MVP of the game. Tomlinson had a double-double by scoring 22 points and getting 15 rebounds. She also added 7 blocks and 3 steals in 25 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Tomlinson's second season in pro basketball. Saces Dike Napoli (4-2) is placed fifth in South group. It was her team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Tomlinson is currently fourth on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). She has individually a very good year with high stats. Tomlinson averages: 17.3ppg, 11.8rpg, 4.3bpg and 1.3spg in the six 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 (2-5) to beat Mondeville (4-3). Thorburn recorded 8 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Aix-en-Provence was badly defeated 74-57 on the road by the higher-ranked Mondeville (#8). It was Aix-en-Provence's third consecutive loss in a row. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Thorburn is currently first on the list of best passers. She has very reliable stats this season: 11.0ppg, 6.4rpg and 5.6apg. Thorburn is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and British.
