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.


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 was the major contributor in a Chicago Bulls' victory against the New York Knicks (16-5) 93-85 in the NBA in Saturday night's game. Deng scored 22 points, had 5 boards, passed 3 assists and added 3 steals in 47 minutes on the court. The Chicago Bulls have 11-9 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Deng's ninth year with the team. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Deng averages: 17.8ppg, 7.1rpg, 2.9apg, 2FGP: 47.5%, 3FGP: 32.8% and FT: 83.8% in the 20 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: British and Sudanese. Deng is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Ben Gordon
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. He could not help the Charlotte Bobcats (7-13) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite Gordon's very good performance the Charlotte Bobcats were edged 100-98 on the road by the New York Knicks. He scored 17 points. 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. He averages: 14.2ppg, 2.1rpg, 2.4apg, 2FGP: 43.4%, 3FGP: 47.1%(41-87) and FT: 85.0%. Gordon is a naturalized American. He is in the roster of the British senior national team. Strangely Gordon has never played in United Kingdom.

Dante Cunningham
Dante Cunningham
   #3. The British player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Dante Cunningham (203-87, college: Villanova, currently plays in NBA). He led Minnesota Timberwolves to an easy victory against the Philadelphia 76ers (12-9) 105-88 in the NBA last Tuesday. Cunningham scored 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 25 minutes. The Minnesota Timberwolves have 9-9 record this season. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Cunningham has relatively good stats this year: 7.9ppg, 5.1rpg, 2FGP: 49.6% and FT: 72.2% in the 18 games. He is a naturalized American.

Matthew Bryan-Amaning
Matthew Bryan-Amaning
   #4. Forward Matthew Bryan-Amaning (205-88, also represented by Interperformances, college: Washington, currently plays in Adriatic League) led his Serbian team Radnicki KG to a victory against the tenth-ranked KK Split (5-7) 72-63 in the Adriatic League on Saturday night.

Richards scored 10 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 24 minutes. It was Asseco Prokom Gdynia's sixth consecutive loss in a row. His team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This year Richards' overall stats are: 4.8ppg and 2.8rpg in the four games. He used to play for the British national team last year.
