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 Turkey). She led Mersin to a victory against the league leader Fenerbahce (14-1) 81-75 in the Turkish TKBL in Saturday night's game. Handy scored 14 points in 35 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only her third season in pro basketball. Mersin BSH Bld (10-5) is placed fifth in the TKBL. It was her team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Handy has relatively good stats this year: 10.7ppg, 3.7rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 41.0%, 3FGP: 29.9% and FT: 87.5% in the 15 games she played so far. She is currently a member of the British senior national team.

Georgia Jones
Georgia Jones
   #2. Second place goes to former international guard Georgia Jones (172-90, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: ORU, currently plays in Romania), who plays in the Romanian Liga Nationala. Jones could not help Cluj Napoca (3-13) in their last game. Despite her very good performance Cluj Napoca was crushed 87-64 on the road by the higher-ranked (#8) Brasov. Jones was the top scorer with 21 points. She also added 8 rebounds in 39 minutes; not bad, considering it's only Jones' third season in pro basketball. It was Cluj Napoca's sixth consecutive loss in a row. Jones has individually a very good year with high stats. She averages: 17.5ppg, 5.0rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 43.8%, 3FGP: 31.6% and FT: 75.0% in the two games. Former Barking Abbey Leopards starter played for the British national team in 2008.

Dominique Allen
Dominique Allen
   #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 was the major contributor in a Meccanica NB's victory against the 13th-ranked Consum.it Siena (0-16) crushing them 66-45 in the Italian A2 (12th division) in Saturday night's game. She scored 13 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Meccanica Nova Bologna (9-7) is placed sixth in South group. Allen's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This season Allen has relatively solid stats: 11.4ppg, 7.5rpg, 2.9spg, 2FGP: 43.8% and FT: 69.0%. She is also a member of the British senior national team.

Kristie Sheils
Kristie Sheils
   #4. Point guard Kristie Sheils (173-91, currently plays in Canada) led University of Calgary to a victory over the Winnipeg (5-12) crushing them 74-53 in the Canadian university league CIS last Friday. Sheils was MVP of the game. She scored 16 points in a mere 19 minutes. The University of Calgary has quite an impressive 14-2 record this season. It was her team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. It's Sheils' first year with the team. Sheils has reliable stats this season: 11.1ppg, 2.4rpg, 2.0apg and 1.4spg in the 14 games. She used to play for the British U20 national team back in 2011.

Kelsey Bardsley
Kelsey Bardsley
   #5. Former U20 international guard Kelsey Bardsley (171-90, currently plays in Canada) was not able to help the Lakehead University (10-5) in their game against the Laurier (8-7) in the Canadian CIS. Bardsley cannot count it as her best performance. She recorded only 2 points in 16 minutes. The Lakehead University (#2) lost 55-65 in Waterloo to the Laurier. This year Bardsley's overall stats are: 9.7ppg and 2.0rpg in the 15 games. She used to play for the British U20 national team three years ago.


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) led Napoli S.Dike to a victory over the eighth-ranked Irpino (6-10) 51-37 in the Italian A2 (12th division) last Sunday. Tomlinson was MVP of the game. She recorded a double-double by scoring 12 points and getting 13 rebounds. Tomlinson also added 2 blocks. Saces Dike Napoli (12-4) is placed third in South group. It was her team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Tomlinson belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #9) and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). She has individually a very good season with high stats. Tomlinson averages: 15.9ppg, 12.3rpg, 3.4bpg and 2.1spg. 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. Alex Bunton (198-C-93, college: Wichita St., currently plays in Australia), who plays in the Australian WNBL could not help Canberra Capitals (6-14) to beat Bulleen Boomers (8-13). Bunton did not beat the league record on Friday evening. She recorded only 2 points. Canberra Capitals were edged 72-69 on the road by the higher-ranked Bulleen Boomers (#6). There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Bunton's first season with the team. Bunton's overall stats this year are: 3.1ppg and 2.9rpg. She is another player who holds two passports: British and Australian.

   #3. Sarah Kershaw (180-SF-85, currently plays in Switzerland) contributed to an easy victory against one of league's weakest teams Bellinzona (2-14) crushing them 86-58 in the Swiss LNA last Saturday. Kershaw recorded 8 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Helios VS Basket (16-0) is placed first in the LNA. So far her team won all sixteen games in the Regular Season. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Kershaw is ranked seventh on the list of the best passers in the league. She has very reliable stats this season: 13.8ppg, 5.1rpg, 3.3apg and 3.5spg. Kershaw has both British and Swiss nationalities.

Johannah Leedham (180-SF-87) plays for Bourges in French LFB

Winning start for Temi - 13 days ago
Temi Fagbenle (193-F-92, college: USC) made a winning start to life in the WNBA as her Minnesota Lynx side defeated Chicago Sky 70-61, on Sunday. The British forward played only limited minutes on her debut, collecting a rebound and a steal in 5:36 of action. Lynx, who lost in the WNBA finals last year, had to hold off a late surge from the short-handed visitors before Rebekkah Brunson scored four straight to give them a 69-59 lead with 2:20 remaining.
