COREY WEBSTER
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of New Zealanders who are currently playing abroad.


Corey Webster
Corey Webster
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Corey Webster (188-88, college: Lambuth, currently plays in China). He could not help Guizhou (6-3) in their last game. Despite Webster's very good performance Guizhou lost 97-109 at home to the second-ranked Shaanxi Xinda. He was the top scorer with 35 points. Webster also added 8 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his ten free throws !!!) in 44 minutes on the court. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Webster has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 39.9ppg, 7.8rpg, 5.6apg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 48.1%, 3FGP: 43.8% and FT: 88.9% in nine games he played so far. Webster is currently a member of the New Zealand senior national team.

Zane Meehl
Zane Meehl
   #2. Second place goes to former University international guard Zane Meehl (188-86, college: Mid-Continent, currently plays in Australia). He was not able to help Sunshine CR (10-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Meehl's very good performance the second-placed Sunshine CR (10-2) was defeated 89-80 on the road by the lower-ranked Brisbane Spartans (#6) in the QBL group. He was the top scorer with 25 points. It's Meehl's first season with the team. Meehl has relatively good stats this year: 11.4ppg, 3.1rpg, 3.2apg, 2FGP: 53.7%, 3FGP: 39.2% and FT: 82.6%. He has a dual citizenship: New Zealand and Australian. Former Wellington Exodus Saints starter played for the New Zealand university national team in 2007.

Dyson King-Hawea
Dyson King-Hawea
   #3. The New Zealand player who performed third best last week abroad was an international forward Dyson King-Hawea (200-92, currently plays in Australia). King-Hawea was not able to secure a victory for Diamond Valley Eagles (5-11) in their game against Spectres (12-4) in the Australian State League (second division). He scored 9 points, had 7 rebounds and dished 3 assists. But Diamond Valley Eagles (#7) were defeated 91-82 in East Burwood by the second-ranked Spectres in the SEABL-South group. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This season King-Hawea has relatively solid stats: 12.8ppg, 6.5rpg, 2.9apg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 54.9%, 3FGP: 24.1% and FT: 75.6%. He played for the New Zealand national team one years ago.

James Paringatai
James Paringatai
   #4. Forward James Paringatai (201-86, currently plays in Australia) managed to help Geraldton Buccaneers in a victory against the ninth-ranked Suns (9-13) 106-96 in the Australian State League (second division) last Saturday. Paringatai scored only 2 points in 8 minutes on the court. Geraldton Buccaneers (16-3) are placed second in SBL group. This year Paringatai's overall stats are: 2.7ppg and 1.4rpg in 17 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). Carter could not help Brisbane Capitals (5-6) to beat Logan Thunder (3-9). He scored 7 points and added 4 passes in 21 minutes. Brisbane Capitals (#9) were edged 109-106 on the road by the lower-ranked (#12) Logan Thunder in the QBL group. 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: 13.6ppg, 4.5rpg, 3.2apg and 1.1spg in 10 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: New Zealand and Australian.

   #2. Zeke Meehl (181-G-88, currently plays in Australia) was not able to help Sunshine CR in their game against Brisbane Spartans (7-2) in the Australian State League (second division). Meehl did not beat the league record on Saturday evening. He scored only 3 points. Sunshine CR (#2) was defeated 89-80 in Brisbane by the lower-ranked Spartans (#6) in the QBL group. It was Sunshine CR's first loss after ten consecutive victories. Meehl's total stats this season are: 4.7ppg and 1.3rpg. He is another player who holds two passports: New Zealand and Australian.
