BROCK MOTUM
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.


Brock Motum
Brock Motum
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Brock Motum (208-90, college: Washington St., currently plays in Turkey). He led Anadolu Efes to a 3-point victory over the 13th-ranked Galatasaray (0-1) 73-70 in a derby game in the Turkish BSL last Sunday. Motum was MVP of the game. He recorded 20 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. It was his first game for Anadolu Efes this season. His team is placed first in the BSL. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Motum played for the Australian senior national team two 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 led Plymouth Raiders to a victory over the tenth-ranked Glasgow Rocks (1-4) 87-83 in the British BBL in Sunday night's game. He was the best player in that game. Wilcher scored 23 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Plymouth University Raiders (2-2) is placed sixth in the BBL. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Wilcher has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 16.5ppg, 3.0rpg, 5.0apg, 2FGP: 54.5%, 3FGP: 34.8% and FT: 75.0%. Wilcher has a dual citizenship: Australian and British. Former Sandringham Sabres starter played for the Australian national team in 2009.

Ben Madgen
Ben Madgen
   #3. The Australian player who performed third best last week abroad was an experienced former international swingman Ben Madgen (193-85, college: Augusta, currently plays in Germany). He could not help Crailsheim Merlins (0-2) in their last game. Despite Madgen's good performance Crailsheim Merlins was edged 92-90 on the road by the second-ranked Giessen 46ers. He scored 10 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 26 minutes. It's Madgen's first season with the team. Madgen has very impressive stats this year: 20.5ppg, 6.0rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 58.3% and FT: 75.0% in two games he played so far. He played for the Australian national team four years ago.

Duop Reath
Duop Reath
   #4. Forward Duop Reath (211-96, college: LSU, currently plays in ABA League) was not able to help FMP (0-0) in their game against Mega Bemax in the ABA League. Reath scored 8 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and made 3 blocks. FMP was crushed 89-61 in Sremska Mitrovica by the lower-ranked Mega Bemax (#8). Reath's overall stats this season are: 6.5ppg, 5.5rpg and 2.5bpg. He is another player who holds two passports: Australian and South Sudanese. Reath used to play for the Australian university national team last year.

Matur Maker
Matur Maker
   #5. Former U19 international center Matur Maker (208-98, currently plays in Switzerland) was not able to secure a victory for Neuchatel (1-1) in their game against Fribourg (2-0) in the Swiss SBL. He scored 6 points and blocked 2 shots. Neuchatel was edged 84-82 at home by the leading Fribourg. Maker's overall stats this season are: 3.0ppg and 4.0rpg. He has both Australian and South Sudanese nationalities. Maker used to play for the Australian U19 national team two years ago.

Keanu Pinder
Keanu Pinder
   #6. Swingman Keanu Pinder (206-95, college: Arizona, currently plays in Poland) managed to help Legia Warszawa in a victory against the 14th-ranked Start (0-1) 81-67 in the Polish EBL last Sunday. Pinder recorded only 2 points in 4 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Legia this season. His team is placed fifth in the EBL. Pinder is a former U22 international player as he played for the Australian 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. Josh Duinker (209-F/C-89, college: Richmond, currently plays in Japan) led Kumamoto Volters to a victory over the sixth-ranked Orange Vikings (0-4) 82-71 in the Japanese B2 League in Saturday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Duinker had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 15 rebounds in 37 minutes. Kumamoto Volters (3-1) are placed third in West group. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Duinker has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 16.0ppg, 10.7rpg and 2.0apg in three games he played so far. Duinker has a dual citizenship: Dutch and Australian.

   #2. Caleb Davis (185-F-95, college: Saginaw Valley, currently plays in Lithuania) was the major contributor in a Ereliai Mazeikiai's victory against the eighth-ranked Taurages (1-1) 90-85 in the Lithuanian NKL (second division) on Friday night. He recorded 15 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals in 30 minutes. It was his first game for Ereliai Mazeikiai this season; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Davis' second season in pro basketball. His team is placed third in the NKL. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen.

   #3. Adam Thosby (198-G/F-91, agency: Players Group, college: Georgia SW, currently plays in United Kingdom) could not help Worcester Wolves (1-3) in their last game. Despite Thosby's very good performance Worcester Wolves was edged 80-77 on the road by the higher-ranked (#4) Bristol Acadamy Flyers. He was the second best scorer with 19 points. Thosby also added 5 rebounds in 40 minutes; not bad, considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. It was Worcester Wolves' third consecutive loss in a row. Thosby has very impressive stats this year: 16.8ppg, 2.8rpg and 2.5apg in four games. He is another player who holds two passports: Australian and British. Worth to mention he played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

   #4. Tony Tolovae (196-G-92, currently plays in Norway) contributed to an easy victory against the seventh-ranked Asker Aliens (0-3) crushing them 91-55 in the Norwegian BLNO on Sunday night. Tolovae scored 15 points, had 7 boards, passed 3 assists and added 4 steals. Gimle BBK Bergen (5-0) is placed second in the BLNO. So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season. This season Tolovae has very high stats. He averages: 16.2ppg, 6.2rpg, 2.0apg and 2.4spg. Tolovae has both Australian and New Zealand nationalities.

   #5. Venkatesha Jois (202-F-93, college: E.Washington, currently plays in Germany) was not able to help SC Rasta Vechta in their game against Bayern Muenchen (2-0) in the German BBL. Jois scored 9 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and made 2 blocks. But the bottom-ranked SC Rasta Vechta was defeated 79-66 in Muenchen by the leading Bayern. Jois' overall stats this season are: 8.0ppg, 5.0rpg, 1.5bpg and 2.0spg.

   #6. Jock Landale (211-C-95, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in EuroCup) was not able to secure a victory for Partizan (0-1) in their last game. Despite his good performance the fifth-placed Partizan lost 73-82 in Trento to the second-ranked Dolomiti En. TR in the group C of Eurocup. Landale recorded 11 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 25 minutes. It was his first game for Partizan this season.

   #7. Obi Kyei (206-F-94, agency: Two Points, college: Eckerd, currently plays in Spain) contributed to an easy victory against the 14th-ranked Palma crushing them 86-66 in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division) last Friday. He recorded 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 25 minutes. It was his first game for Lleida Basquet this season. Kyei also holds two passports: British and Australian.

   #8. Dominic Gilbert (198-G/F-96, college: UBC, currently plays in Croatia) contributed to an easy victory against one of league's weakest teams KK Skrljevo crushing them 86-66 in the Croatian Premijer Liga in Saturday night's game. He recorded 7 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 17 minutes. It was his first game for Cibona this season.

   #9. Timothy Kearney (201-F/G-86, currently plays in Sweden) contributed to an easy victory against the 11th-ranked Uppsala Basket crushing them 90-59 in the Swedish Basketligan last Friday.
