We bring you last week's top performances from Australians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Abby Bishop
Abby Bishop
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Abby Bishop (189-88, currently plays in France). She could not help Tarbes (4-2) in their last game. Despite Bishop's very good performance the third-placed Tarbes (4-2) lost 85-93 at home to the lower-ranked (#8) Hainaut in the Play-Out group. She was the top scorer with 40 points. Bishop also added 9 rebounds (made all of her seven free throws) in 40 minutes on the court. Her team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Bishop's first season with the team. Bishop has individually a very good year with high stats. She averages: 19.4ppg, 10.1rpg, 1.7apg, 1.7spg, 2FGP: 45.2%, 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 82.9% in 18 games she played so far. Ex-Canberra Capitals player is currently a member of the Australian senior national team.

Ebzery was not able to help one of league's weakest teams Dynamo Moscow (9-11) in their last game on Sunday. Despite her very good performance Dynamo Moscow was crushed 83-57 on the road by the higher-ranked Vologda-Chevakata (#4). Ebzery was the top scorer with 17 points. She also added 8 rebounds. Ebzery's overall stats this season are: 9.0ppg, 3.3rpg, 3.2apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 41.2%, 3FGP: 38.8% and FT: 82.8%. She is in the roster of the Australian senior national team.

   #3. The Australian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Stephanie Talbot (188-94, currently plays in Poland). Talbot was not able to secure a victory for AZS Gorzow Wielkopolski (15-7) in their last game. Despite her very good performance AZS Gorzow Wielkopolski lost 81-87 in Polkowice to the lower-ranked (#5) CCC Polkowice. Talbot was the top scorer with 24 points.

Nicole Seekamp
Nicole Seekamp

She also added 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 27 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Seekamp's third season in pro basketball.
