BROCK MOTUM
Here is the weekly review of the top performing Australian players, who play currently abroad.


Brock Motum
Brock Motum
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Brock Motum (208-90, college: Washington St., currently plays in Euroleague). He was the major contributor in an Anadolu Efes' victory against one of league's weakest teams Buducnost (3-11) crushing them 106-68 in the Euroleague in Tuesday night's game. Motum recorded 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in a mere 16 minutes on the court. Anadolu Efes Istanbul (10-4) is placed fourth in the Euroleague. His team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This year Motum averages: 8.1ppg, 2.0rpg, 2FGP: 59.2%(29-49), 3FGP: 53.8%(14-26) and FT: 76.5% in 14 games he played so far. He played for the Australian senior national team two years ago.

Simmons led Philadelphia 76ers to an easy victory against the Toronto Raptors (25-10) crushing them 126-101 in the NBA on Saturday night. He had a double-double by scoring 26 points and getting 12 rebounds. Simmons also added 8 assists in 34 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. The Philadelphia 76ers have a solid 22-12 record this season. Simmons has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 16.2ppg, 9.1rpg, 7.9apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 58.7%(216-368) and FT: 59.8% in 33 games.
