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


Brock Motum
Brock Motum
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Brock Motum (208-90, college: Washington St., currently plays in Euroleague). He could not help Anadolu Efes (2-6) in their last game. Despite Motum's very good performance Anadolu Efes was edged 82-81 at home by the much lower-ranked (#25) Panathinaikos. He was the top scorer with 21 points. Motum also added 5 rebounds in 22 minutes on the court. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Motum's first year with the team. This season he averages: 8.9ppg, 3.3rpg, 2FGP: 57.1%(20-35), 3FGP: 41.2% in eight games he played so far. Motum played for the Australian senior national team one years ago.

Benjamin Simmons
Benjamin Simmons
   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Benjamin Simmons (208-96, college: LSU, currently plays in NBA). Simmons was not able to help the Philadelphia 76ers (8-7) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the Philadelphia 76ers (8-7) lost 116-124 on the road to the Golden State Warriors. Simmons had a double-double by scoring 23 points and making 12 passes. He also added 8 rebounds in 38 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Simmons' second season in pro basketball. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Simmons has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 18.1ppg, 9.1rpg, 8.0apg, 1.9spg, 2FGP: 53.6% and FT: 59.7% in 15 games. Simmons played for the Australian national team in 2014.

Despite Bolden's good performance Maccabi T-A was badly defeated 92-72 on their home court in Tel-Aviv by the much lower-ranked Anadolu Efes (#16). He was the second best scorer with 12 points.
