Here is the weekly review of the top performing Australian players, who play currently abroad.


Aaron Baynes
Aaron Baynes
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Aaron Baynes (208-86, college: Washington St., currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Slovenia. He could not help Union Olimpija (1-3) in their last game. Despite Baynes' very good performance the fifth-placed Union Olimpija lost 65-75 on the road to the higher-ranked (#3) Khimky in the group A of Euroleague. He had a double-double by scoring 27 points and getting 10 rebounds in 27 minutes on the court. It was Union Olimpija's third consecutive loss in a row. It's Baynes' first season with the team. Baynes is currently fifth on the list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Baynes averages: 18.3ppg, 10.0rpg, 2FGP: 63.6%(28-44) and FT: 68.0% in the four games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Australian and New Zealand. Baynes is currently a member of the Australian senior national team.

David Andersen
David Andersen
   #2. Second place goes to an international center David Andersen (212-80, currently plays in Turkey). He was the major contributor in a Fenerbahce Ulker's victory against the 13th-ranked Besiktas (0-3) 83-74 in a derby game in the Turkish TBL last Monday. Andersen recorded 17 points. Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul (4-0) is placed first in the TBL. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Andersen's overall stats this year are: 7.3ppg, 3.8rpg, 3FGP: 25.0%. He is in the roster of the Australian senior national team.

Nathan Jawai
Nathan Jawai
   #3. The Australian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Nathan Jawai (208-86, college: Midland CC, currently plays in Euroleague). Jawai led his Spanish team Regal FC Barcelona to a 3-point victory against the sixth-ranked Partizan (0-4) 85-82 in the Euroleague in Thursday night's game. He recorded 16 points. Regal FC Barcelona (4-0) is placed second in group D. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. Jawai has relatively good stats this season: 11.5ppg, 4.8rpg, 2FGP: 72.0%(18-25) and FT: 62.5%. He played for the Australian national team three years ago.

Brad Newley
Brad Newley
   #4. Swingman Brad Newley (199-85, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Spain) led G.Canaria 2014 to a victory against the league outsider CB Canarias (0-6) 76-71 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. Newley scored 12 points in 34 minutes. Herbalife Gran Canaria 2014 (4-2) is placed eighth in the ACB. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Newley has relatively solid stats: 10.8ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.5apg in the six games. He is also Australian national team player.

Mark Worthington

Joe Ingles
Joe Ingles
   #6. Small forward Joe Ingles (203-87, agency: Priority Sports, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Nathan Jawai.

Center Aleks Maric (211-84, college: Nebraska, currently plays in Russia) helped Lokomotiv win their game against one of league's weakest teams BC Nizhny Novgorod (1-3) 61-54 in the Russian PBL last Sunday. He scored 6 points, had 7 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 29 minutes. Lokomotiv Kuban (2-3) is placed sixth in the PBL. Maric is currently seventh on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (third place). This year he has very good stats: 11.8ppg, 7.4rpg and 1.6spg in the five games. Maric is an international player who is currently on the senior Australian National Team roster.

   #11. Former University international forward Kenton Walker II (205-84, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in Ireland) led UCC Demons to a 1-point victory over the closely-ranked DCU Saints 83-82 in the Irish Superleague on Monday night. He was MVP of the game. Walker II recorded a double-double by scoring 23 points and getting 12 rebounds. He also added 3 blocks. It was his first game for UCC Demons this season. Walker II used to play for the Australian university national team five years ago.

   #12. Former international point guard Rhys Carter (190-84, currently plays in Sweden) was not able to help Uppsala Basket in their game against Norrkoping Dolphins in the Swedish Basketligan. Carter recorded 8 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists. His team was defeated 94-87. Carter is currently first on the list of best passers and also on the list of most steals (second place). He has very solid stats this season: 10.8ppg, 2.8rpg, 5.4apg and 2.1spg. Carter used to play for the Australian national team back in 2009.

   #13. International power forward David Barlow (205-83, college: Metro St., currently plays in Spain) was not able to secure a victory for UCAM Murcia in their game against FIATC Joventut in the Spanish ACB. Barlow scored 5 points in 22 minutes. His team was crushed by 22 points 92-70. Barlow has averaged so far 5.8ppg, 5.2rpg, 1.2apg and 1.2spg in the six games. He is also Australian national team player.

   #14. Former international point guard Patrick Mills (183-88, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in NBA) helped San Antonio Spurs win their game against the New Orleans Hornets 99-95 in the NBA in Wednesday night's game.

   #15. Former international guard Steven Markovic (190-85, currently plays in Adriatic League) is a teammate of previously mentioned Mark Worthington and both played together in the last Adriatic League game. Markovic helped his Serbian team Radnicki KG win their game against the 11th-ranked Krka 84-71. He recorded 5 points in 12 minutes. Markovic has averaged so far 3.7ppg, 2.0rpg and 3.3apg in the six games. He used to play for the Australian national team three years ago.


The list of other players, who all have Australian passport but never been selected to any of Australian national teams:

   #1. Kyrie Irving (191-G-92, college: Duke, currently plays in NBA) led Cleveland Cavaliers to a victory over the Washington Wizards (0-2) 94-84 in the NBA on Tuesday night. Irving was MVP of the game. He recorded 29 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 35 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Irving's second season in pro basketball. The Cleveland Cavaliers have 1-2 record this season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Irving is ranked fourth on the list of the top scorers in the league with 23.7ppg. This year his other stats are: 4.0rpg and 4.7apg in the three games he played so far. Irving is a naturalized American. Despite his Australian passport, Irving previously played for the USA U18 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Australian team. Strangely he has never played in Australia.

   #2. Experienced Mick Pennisi (210-C-75, college: E.Michigan, currently plays in Philippines), who plays in the Filipino PBA could not help Barako Bull (3-5) in their last game. Despite his good performance Barako Bull (#7) was edged 92-91 on the road by the second-ranked San Mig Coffee in the Philippine Cup group. Pennisi recorded 12 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists in 39 minutes. It was Barako Bull's third consecutive loss in a row. Pennisi has reliable stats this year: 10.8ppg, 5.0rpg and 1.8apg in the five games. He has a dual citizenship: Australian and Filipino.

   #3. Adrien Sturt (209-C-86, college: Snow CC, currently plays in United Kingdom) was the major contributor in a London Lions' victory against the closely-ranked Cheshire Jets (2-5) 82-75 in the British BBL on Sunday night. He scored 17 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 20 minutes. London Lions (2-5) is placed ninth in the BBL. Sturt has reliable stats this year: 12.0ppg, 5.6rpg and 1.4apg in the five games.

   #4. Lee Jeka (187-G-83, agency: Limelight Hoops, currently plays in Germany) contributed to a Science City Jena's victory against the closely-ranked Kirchheim Knights (3-5) 94-84 in the German ProA (second division) in Friday night's game. He recorded 15 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals. Science City Jena (3-5) is placed 12th in the ProA. Jeka has reliable stats this season: 12.9ppg, 3.4rpg and 4.3apg. He is another player who holds two passports: British and Australian.

   #5. Josh Duinker (210-F/C-89, college: Richmond, currently plays in Spain) was not able to help Caceres Basket (1-4) in their game against Palencia Baloncesto (4-1) in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division). Despite his good performance on Friday night Duinker scored 11 points. Duinker has averaged so far 8.8ppg, 4.4rpg and 1.6apg. He has both Australian and Dutch nationalities.

   #6. Michael Kingma (208-C-79, agency: R.H.Consultancy, currently plays in Holland) was not able to secure a victory for Groningen in their game against M.Magixx in the Dutch Eredivisie. Kingma recorded only 4 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. His team was badly defeated by 19 points 83-64. Kingma has averaged so far 2.3ppg and 4.0rpg. He also holds two passports: Australian and Dutch.

   #7. Triantafillos Tzakopoulos (187-G-85, currently plays in Germany) managed to help Duesseldorf Baskets to win against the league leader BG Karlsruhe 74-71 in the German ProA (second division) in Sunday night's game. Tzakopoulos scored only 3 points and added 5 passes. Tzakopoulos has averaged so far 6.0ppg, 1.4rpg and 3.1apg. He has dual citizenship: Greek and Australian.

   #8. Laurent Lahey (204-F/C-89, currently plays in Switzerland) couldn't help Boncourt in their game against BBC Nyon in the Swiss LNA. Lahey scored 6 points in only 9 minutes. His team lost 79-83. This year Lahey averages only 2.2ppg in the five games. He holds both Australian and Swiss passports. Despite Lahey's Australian nationality, he previously played for the Swiss U20 national team and probably cannot be called to the Australian team.

   #9. David Oates (196-F-86, currently plays in Canada) couldn't help the Thompson Rivers University in their game against the Timberwolves in the Canadian university league CIS. Oates recorded 7 points. His team was edged 69-67. Oates has averaged so far 5.0ppg and 4.0rpg.
