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


Ben Madgen
Ben Madgen
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international swingman Ben Madgen (193-85, college: Augusta, currently plays in Germany). He could not help Crailsheim Merlins (0-1) in their last game. Despite Madgen's very good performance Crailsheim Merlins lost 80-93 on the road to the much higher-ranked (#4) Eisbaeren Bremerhaven. He was the top scorer with 31 points. Madgen also added 6 rebounds in 33 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Crailsheim Merlins this season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Madgen played for the Australian senior national team four years ago.

Joshua Wilcher
Joshua Wilcher
   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Joshua Wilcher (178-91, college: Cent.Wyoming, currently plays in United Kingdom). Wilcher was the major contributor in a Plymouth Raiders' surprising victory against the fourth-ranked London Lions (2-1) 95-88 in the British BBL on Sunday night. He recorded 26 points (!!!) and added 7 assists in 36 minutes. Plymouth University Raiders (1-2) is placed tenth in the BBL. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Wilcher has relatively good stats this year: 13.7ppg, 2.0rpg, 4.7apg, 3FGP: 27.8% and FT: 75.0% in three games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Australian and British. Former Sandringham Sabres starter played for the Australian national team in 2009.

Duop Reath
Duop Reath
   #3. The Australian player who performed third best last week abroad was University international forward Duop Reath (211-96, college: LSU, currently plays in ABA League). Reath managed to help FMP Beograd to win against the 16th-ranked KK Zadar (0-1) 99-86 in the ABA League last Monday. He recorded 5 points and blocked 2 blocks. It was his first game for FMP this season. His team is placed first in the ABA League. Reath is another player who holds two passports: Australian and South Sudanese. He played for the Australian university national team one years ago.

Xavier Cooks
Xavier Cooks
   #4. Swingman Xavier Cooks (203-95, college: Winthrop, currently plays in Germany) was not able to help s Oliver Baskets in their game against Brose Baskets (1-0) in the German BBL. Cooks recorded only 4 points in 10 minutes. It was his first game for s Oliver Baskets this season. s Oliver Baskets lost 80-84 in Bamberg to the higher-ranked (#5) Brose Baskets.

   #1. Josh Duinker (209-F/C-89, college: Richmond, currently plays in Japan) could not help Kumamoto Volters (1-1) in their last game on Sunday.

   #2. Adam Thosby (198-G/F-91, agency: Players Group, college: Georgia SW, currently plays in United Kingdom) was not able to help Worcester Wolves (1-2) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance Worcester Wolves was defeated 91-83 in Chester by the higher-ranked Cheshire Phoenix (#3). Thosby was the top scorer with 23 points. He also added 3 assists.
