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


Leon Henry
Leon Henry
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Leon Henry (200-85, college: S.Idaho JC, currently plays in Australia). He was the major contributor in a Ballarat Miners' victory against the third-ranked NW Tasmania Thunder (13-10) 98-79 in the Australian State League (second division) in Sunday night's game. Henry had a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 12 rebounds in 21 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group SEABL-East. Ballarat Miners (15-8) are placed second. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Henry's first season with the team. Henry has relatively good stats this year: 13.0ppg, 10.4rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 65.1%(41-63), 3FGP: 27.3% and FT: 44.4% in eight games he played so far. He played for the New Zealand senior national team five years ago.

Tobias Cameron
Tobias Cameron
   #2. Second place goes to U19 international guard Tobias Cameron (193-99, currently plays in Australia). Cameron led Rollers to a 3-point victory over the sixth-ranked Ipswich Force (9-7) 97-94 in the Australian State League (second division) on Friday night. He was MVP of the game. Cameron recorded 20 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals in 41 minutes. Gold Coast Rollers (5-11) are placed tenth in QBL group. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. This year Cameron has relatively solid stats: 10.4ppg, 3.8rpg, 2.9apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 42.1%, 3FGP: 35.0% and FT: 90.9%(20-22) in nine games. He is in the roster of the New Zealand U19 national team.

Zane Meehl
Zane Meehl
   #3. The New Zealand player who performed third best last week abroad was former University international guard Zane Meehl (188-86, college: Mid-Continent, currently plays in Australia). Meehl led Sunshine CR to an easy victory against the 11th-ranked Gladstone Port City Power (4-10) 101-83 in the Australian State League (second division) in Saturday night's game. He recorded 22 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Sunshine Coast Rip (10-5) is placed fifth in QBL group. Meehl's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. This season Meehl averages: 8.5ppg, 1.8rpg, 2FGP: 81.3%(13-16), 3FGP: 44.0% and FT: 79.2%. He has a dual citizenship: New Zealand and Australian. Former Wellington Exodus Saints starter played for the New Zealand university national team ten years ago.

   #4. Power forward Dennis Tawhiti (198-90, currently plays in Australia). Tawhiti could not help Eagles (4-12) to beat Redbacks (8-14). He recorded 6 points in 18 minutes. his team lost 107-116 on the road to the much lower-ranked (#7) Redbacks in the SBL group. The Regular Season already ended. This year Tawhiti's overall stats are: 8.0ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.2apg in 26 games. He used to play for the New Zealand national team back in 2013.


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

   #1. Zac Carter (203-F/G-89, currently plays in Australia) led Brisbane Capitals to an easy victory against the leader Brisbane Spartans (17-0) crushing them 116-91 in a derby game in the Australian State League (second division) last Saturday. Carter recorded 13 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group QBL. Brisbane Capitals (12-3) are placed second. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Carter is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fourth year in Brisbane Capitals' roster. This season Carter has relatively solid stats: 14.0ppg, 5.3rpg and 2.5apg. He has a dual citizenship: New Zealand and Australian.

   #2. Zeke Meehl (181-G-88, currently plays in Australia) contributed to an easy victory against the 11th-ranked Gladstone Port City Power (4-10) 101-83 in the Australian State League (second division) on Saturday night. Meehl recorded 7 points. Sunshine Coast Rip (10-5) is placed fifth in QBL group. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. Meehl has reliable stats this season: 12.4ppg, 3.3rpg and 2.1apg. He is another player who holds two passports: New Zealand and Australian.
