Johannah Leedham
Johannah Leedham
   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Johannah Leedham (180-87, college: Franklin Pierce, currently plays in France). She led Bourges to a victory against the 12th-ranked Aix-en-Provence (6-11) 74-64 in the French LFB in Saturday night's game. Leedham scored 12 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 24 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Bourges this season. Her team is placed second in the LFB. It was her team's third consecutive victory in a row. Leedham is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Chantelle Handy
Chantelle Handy
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Chantelle Handy (191-87, college: Marshall, currently plays in Turkey). She contributed to Mersin's victory against the closely-ranked Antakya (7-7) 70-66 in the Turkish TKBL last Sunday. Handy scored 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Mersin BSH Bld (9-5) is placed fifth in the TKBL. It was her team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. It's Handy's first season with the team. She has relatively good stats this year: 10.4ppg, 3.8rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 40.7%, 3FGP: 27.5% and FT: 87.5%. Handy is in the roster of the British senior national team.

Kristie Sheils
Kristie Sheils
   #3. The British player who performed third best last week abroad was former U20 international point guard Kristie Sheils (173-91, currently plays in Canada). Sheils contributed to an easy victory against the Trinity Western (3-11) crushing them 78-56 in the Canadian university league CIS in Saturday night's game. She recorded 14 points (made all of her five free throws). The University of Calgary has a very solid 12-2 record this season. This year Sheils has relatively solid stats: 11.1ppg, 2.8rpg, 2.0apg, 1.3spg, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 79.3%. She played for the British U20 national team two years ago.

Georgia Jones
Georgia Jones
   #4. Guard Georgia Jones (172-90, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: ORU, currently plays in Romania), who plays in the Romanian Liga Nationala could not help Cluj Napoca (3-12) in their last game. Despite Jones' good performance Cluj Napoca was crushed 95-49 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#3) Satu Mare. She was the top scorer with 14 points. Jones also added 3 assists in 40 minutes. It was his first game for Cluj Napoca this season; quite an impressive performance considering it's only her third season in pro basketball. It was Cluj Napoca's fifth consecutive loss in a row. Jones used to play for the British national team back in 2008.

Kelsey Bardsley
Kelsey Bardsley
   #5. Former U20 international guard Kelsey Bardsley (171-90, currently plays in Canada) contributed to an overtime Lakehead University's victory against the Western (7-6) 83-80 in the Canadian CIS on Saturday night. She recorded 11 points (made all of her six free throws). The Lakehead University has a solid 8-5 record this season. Bardsley has reliable stats this year: 10.8ppg, 1.9rpg and 1.1spg. She used to play for the British U20 national team three years ago.

Dominique Allen
Dominique Allen
   #6. Center Dominique Allen (192-89, college: ORU, currently plays in Italy) was not able to help Meccanica NB (8-7) in their game against S. La Spezia (11-4) in the Italian A2 (12th division). Allen cannot count it as her best performance. She recorded only 2 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 25 minutes. The seventh-placed Meccanica NB lost 46-59 in La Spezia to the higher-ranked (#4) S. La Spezia in the South group. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Allen's stats this year are: 11.3ppg, 7.6rpg and 2.9spg in the 15 games she played so far. She is an international player who is currently on the senior British National Team roster.

Meagan Hoffman
Meagan Hoffman
   #7. Former international forward Meagan Hoffman (183-82, college: Adams St., currently plays in Ireland) led DCU Mercy to a victory over the closely-ranked 11890 Killester (6-10) 69-60 in a derby game in the Irish Superleague last Saturday. Hoffman was MVP of the game. She recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 12 rebounds. DCU Mercy Dublin (8-2) is placed third in the Superleague. Hoffman is ranked third on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). She has individually a very good season with high stats. Hoffman averages: 18.3ppg, 10.6rpg, 1.4apg and 2.9spg. She is a naturalized American. Hoffman used to play for the British national team two years ago.

Rachel Vanderwal
Rachel Vanderwal
   #8. Guard Rachel Vanderwal (176-83, college: Boston U., currently plays in Ireland) was the main contributor in an UL Aughinish's victory against the league outsider Liffey Celtics (0-10) crushing them 71-19 in the Irish Superleague in Saturday night's game. She was the best player in that game. Vanderwal scored 20 points and had 3 steals. University of Limerick Aughinish (11-1) is placed first in the Superleague. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Vanderwal is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's her fourth year in UL Aughinish's roster. She is currently second on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of most steals (fourth place). This season Vanderwal has very high stats. She averages: 19.2ppg, 4.0rpg, 2.3apg and 3.3spg. Vanderwal plays currently for the British national team.

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) contributed to a Napoli S.Dike's victory against the ninth-ranked Salerno (6-9) 63-55 in the Italian A2 (12th division) on Sunday night. She had a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting the same number of rebounds. Tomlinson also added 2 blocks in 37 minutes. Saces Dike Napoli (11-4) is placed third in South group. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Tomlinson belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #6) and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). She has individually a very good year with high stats. Tomlinson averages: 16.2ppg, 12.3rpg, 3.5bpg and 2.1spg in the 15 games she played so far. She has a dual citizenship: Australian and British. Despite Tomlinson's British passport, she previously played for the Australian university national team and is probably not eligible to play for the British team.

   #2. Sarah Kershaw (180-SF-85, currently plays in Switzerland) led Helios to an easy victory against the league outsider Highflyers (1-14) crushing them 82-35 in the Swiss LNA on Sunday night. She had a double-double by scoring 12 points and getting 10 rebounds. Kershaw also added and 5 steals in 26 minutes. Helios VS Basket (15-0) is placed first in the LNA. So far her team won all fifteen games in the Regular Season. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Kershaw is ranked fifth on the list of the best passers in the league with 3.4apg. This year her other stats are: 14.2ppg, 5.2rpg and 3.6spg in the 13 games. Kershaw is another player who holds two passports: British and Swiss.

   #3. Alex Bunton (198-C-93, college: Wichita St., currently plays in Australia), who plays in the Australian WNBL could not help Canberra Capitals (6-13) to beat Dandenong Rangers (16-3). She cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Bunton scored only 1 points in 11 minutes. Canberra Capitals were crushed 98-73 on the road by the second-ranked Dandenong Rangers. This year Bunton's overall stats are: 3.2ppg and 2.8rpg in the 13 games. She has both British and Australian nationalities.
