#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.

#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.

She scored 13 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.

#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.
