Here is the weekly review of the top performing British players, who play currently abroad.


Luol Deng
Luol Deng
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Luol Deng (206-85, agency: Interperformances, college: Duke, currently plays in NBA). He led Chicago Bulls to a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers (10-8) 93-88 in the NBA in Saturday night's game. Deng was MVP of the game. He scored 25 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 7 assists in 42 minutes on the court. The Chicago Bulls have 8-8 record this season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Deng's ninth year with the team. Deng has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 18.0ppg, 7.4rpg, 2.8apg, 2FGP: 49.2%, 3FGP: 30.6% and FT: 82.1% in the 16 games he played so far. Deng has a dual citizenship: British and Sudanese. He is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Ben Gordon
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Ben Gordon (188-83, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA.

Despite his very good performance the Charlotte Bobcats were defeated in an overtime 118-112 on the road by the Portland Trail Blazers. Gordon was the top scorer with 29 points. He also added 5 passes. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Gordon's first year with the team. This season Gordon has very high stats.
