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.


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 over the eighth-ranked Toulouse (8-10) crushing them 77-48 in the French LFB in Sunday night's game. Leedham was MVP of the game. She scored 16 points in 34 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Leedham's third season in pro basketball. Cercle Jean Mace Bourges (13-4) is placed second in the LFB. It was her team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Leedham has relatively good stats this year: 14.0ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.5apg, 1.5spg in the two games she played so far. She 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). Handy was the major contributor in Mersin's victory against the tenth-ranked TED Ankara (6-10) 77-67 in the Turkish TKBL last Sunday. She recorded 13 points. Mersin BSH Bld (11-5) is placed fifth in the TKBL. It was her team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. It's Handy's first season with the team. This year Handy has relatively solid stats: 10.8ppg, 3.6rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 41.9%, 3FGP: 31.2% and FT: 87.5%. She 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 University of Calgary's victory against the Regina (6-12) 79-68 in the Canadian university league CIS in Saturday night's game. She recorded 12 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. The University of Calgary has a very solid 15-3 record this season. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Sheils has reliable stats this season: 10.8ppg, 2.5rpg, 2.0apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 48.4%, 3FGP: 36.4% and FT: 82.9%. She played for the British U20 national team two years ago.

Kelsey Bardsley
Kelsey Bardsley
   #4. Guard Kelsey Bardsley (171-90, currently plays in Canada), who plays in the Canadian CIS could not help the Lakehead University (12-5) in their last game. Despite Bardsley's very good performance the Lakehead University (#2) was crushed 82-58 on the road by the Guelph. She was the top scorer with 17 points in 27 minutes. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This year Bardsley's overall stats are: 9.9ppg, 2.2rpg and 1.1spg in the 17 games. She used to play for the British U20 national team back in 2010.

Dominique Allen
Dominique Allen
   #5. International center Dominique Allen (192-89, college: ORU, currently plays in Italy) was not able to help Meccanica NB (9-8) in their game against Ancona (5-8) in the Italian A2 (12th division). Allen cannot count Monday's game as one of the best ones. She recorded only 2 points. The seventh-placed Meccanica NB was defeated 63-59 on the opponent's court by the lower-ranked Ancona (#10) in the South group. The Regular Season already ended. Allen's stats this season are: 10.9ppg, 7.1rpg and 2.8spg. She 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) led Napoli S.Dike to a victory over the 13th-ranked Consum.it Siena (0-18) crushing them 81-35 in the Italian A2 (12th division) on Wednesday night. Tomlinson was the best player in that game. She had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 15 rebounds. Tomlinson also added 2 blocks in a mere 19 minutes; not bad, considering it's only her second season in pro basketball. Saces Dike Napoli (13-5) is placed fourth in South group. It was her team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Tomlinson is currently eighth on the list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). She has individually a very good year with high stats. Tomlinson averages: 15.8ppg, 12.7rpg, 3.3bpg and 1.9spg in the 18 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) was the main contributor in Helios' victory against the eighth-ranked Basel (4-13) crushing them 91-48 in the Swiss LNA on Sunday night. Kershaw was the best player in that game. She scored 29 points (!!!), grabbed 8 rebounds, passed 3 assists and added 2 blocks. Helios VS Basket (17-0) is placed first in the LNA. So far her team won all seventeen games in the Regular Season. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Kershaw belongs to league's best passers and is ranked #6. She has very reliable stats this season: 14.8ppg, 5.3rpg, 3.3apg and 3.7spg. Kershaw is another player who holds two passports: British and Swiss.

   #3. Shona Thorburn (178-G-82, college: Utah, currently plays in France) managed to help Pays d'Aix Basket 13 Provence in a victory against the sixth-ranked Basket Landes (10-8) 70-59 in the French LFB in Saturday night's game. She scored only 3 points in 15 minutes. Pays d'Aix Basket 13 Provence (7-11) is placed 12th in the LFB. Thorburn is currently second on the list of best passers with 5.1apg. She also averaged so far 10.4ppg and 4.9rpg in the 16 games. Thorburn has both Canadian and British nationalities.

   #4. Alex Bunton (198-C-93, college: Wichita St., currently plays in Australia) contributed to a Canberra Capitals' victory against the league outsider Townsville Fire (6-10) 76-68 in the Australian WNBL last Friday. She scored only 2 points. Canberra TransAct Capitals (7-14) are placed seventh in the WNBL. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This season Bunton averages: 3.1ppg and 2.8rpg. She also holds two passports: British and Australian.

   #5. Zane Alilujeva (185-C-87, currently plays in Latvia) helped Liepajas win their game against the closely-ranked KK Tallinna Ulikool (7-8) 78-69 in the Latvian LSBL on Sunday night. Alilujeva scored only 2 points in 4 minutes on the court. Liepajas Papirs (10-4) is placed fifth in the LSBL. It was her team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Alilujeva has been at the team for four years. This season she averages: 2.9ppg and 3.1rpg in the seven games.
