Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Australians who are currently playing abroad.


Nathan Jawai
Nathan Jawai
   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Nathan Jawai (208-86, college: Midland CC, currently plays in Euroleague). He led his Spanish team Regal FC Barcelona to a victory over the third-ranked Besiktas (2-1) 72-60 in the Euroleague in Thursday night's game. Jawai was MVP of the game. He scored 14 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 24 minutes on the court. Regal FC Barcelona (3-0) is placed first in group D. So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. This year Jawai averages: 10.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 2FGP: 64.7%(11-17) in the three games he played so far. He played for the Australian senior national team three years ago.

David Andersen
David Andersen
   #2. Second place goes to an international center David Andersen (212-80, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Turkey. Andersen could not help Fenerbahce Ulker (2-1) in their last game on Thursday. Despite his good performance the third-placed Fenerbahce Ulker was defeated 83-75 on the road by the leading Real Madrid in the group A of Euroleague. Andersen was the second best scorer with 13 points. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Andersen's overall stats this year are: 6.0ppg, 2.0rpg, 2FGP: 33.3%. He is in the roster of the Australian senior national team.

Aaron Baynes
Aaron Baynes
   #3. The Australian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Aaron Baynes (208-86, college: Washington St., currently plays in Euroleague). Baynes was not able to help Union Olimpija (1-2) in their game against Panathinaikos (2-1) in the Euroleague, despite his very good performance on Friday night. He was the top scorer with 16 points. Baynes also added 6 rebounds in 24 minutes. But Union Olimpija (#4) was badly defeated 85-67 at home by the second-ranked Panathinaikos in the group A of Euroleague. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Baynes is currently first on the league's list of best rebounders with 10.0rpg. This year his other stats are: 15.3ppg, 2FGP: 56.3%(18-32) and FT: 66.7% in the three games. Baynes has a dual citizenship: Australian and New Zealand. He is also a member of the Australian senior national team.

Joe Ingles
Joe Ingles
   #4. Small forward Joe Ingles (203-87, agency: Priority Sports, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Nathan Jawai. But that was another game of his team in Spanish ACB which we would like to mention. Ingles contributed to an easy victory against the 12th-ranked CAI Zaragoza (2-3) 65-50. He recorded 9 points and added 3 passes. Regal FC Barcelona (3-2) is placed eighth in the ACB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. Ingles' overall stats this season are: 8.6ppg, 2.0rpg and 1.8apg. He is also Australian national team player.

International power forward David Barlow (205-83, college: Metro St., currently plays in Spain) contributed to a 2-point UCAM Murcia's victory against the league outsider Lagun Aro GBC (0-5) 77-75 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. Barlow had a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting the same number of rebounds in 32 minutes. UCAM Murcia (24-6) is placed in the ACB. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Barlow's overall stats are: 6.2ppg, 5.2rpg, 1.2apg and 1.4spg in the five games. He plays currently for the Australian national team.

Aleks Maric
Aleks Maric

Despite his very good performance on Thursday night Maric was the top scorer with 20 points. He also added 5 rebounds. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Maric is currently fifth on the list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (third place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Maric averages: 15.3ppg and 8.0rpg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Australian National Team roster.

Matt Nielsen
Matt Nielsen
   #7. An experienced international forward Matt Nielsen (208-78, currently plays in VTB United League) managed to help BC Khimky Moscow Region in a victory against the sixth-ranked BC Donetsk (2-2) 72-58 in the VTB United League in Monday night's game.

It's Worthington's first season with the team. Worthington is currently ninth on the league's list of top scorers. He has very reliable stats this season: 13.2ppg and 3.0rpg. Worthington plays currently for the Australian national team.

He scored 15 points and added 7 passes in 24 minutes. Uppsala Basket (5-2) is placed third in the Basketligan. Carter belongs to league's best passers (ranked #3) and also on the list of most steals (third place). This year he has very good stats: 11.1ppg, 2.6rpg, 5.1apg and 2.4spg in the seven games. Carter used to play for the Australian national team three years ago.
