Fotu brothers in good form - Dec 3, 2018

Isaac Fotu
The Fotu brothers have been in great form of late.

Prior to the FIBA international break Isaac Fotu (203-F-93, college: Hawaii) had enjoyed a couple of standout games for his German club Ratiopharm Ulm.

Isaac scored 15 points on 6 from 9 shooting as Ulm lost a tight encounter with Monaco going down 84-81 in EuroCup action. Ulm (3-5) will have to win both of their two remaining pool games to advance to the next round starting with a home game against Andorra next Tuesday.

The Tall Blacks power forward followed that with a high octane 18 points (8/12FG, 2/2FT), 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals as Ulm gained a much-needed win in the Bundesliga against Telekom Basket. The win, just the third in the German League for Ulm this season, improved their record to 3-5.

Isaac's efficient scoring efforts were more than matched by younger brother Dan at the weekend.

The 19 year-old is earning more and more minutes in his freshman season at St Mary's College California. Dan rewarded coach Randy Bennett for displaying confidence in him by putting together a perfect shooting display as the Gaels stunned California Golden Bears winning 84-71. Fotu's numbers were highly impressive knocking down 4 from 4 threes, his only two-pointer and both of his free throws - seven shots with zero misses in 21 minutes on court.

Steven Adams selected the top New Zealander playing abroad in last week's games - 4 days ago
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. This week's number one is former international power forward Steven Adams (213-93). He could not help the Oklahoma City Thunder (49-33) in their last game. Despite Adams' very good performance the Oklahoma City Thunder (49-33) lost 99-104 on the road to the Portland Trail Blazers.    [read more]
