We bring you last week's top performances from Argentinians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Andres Nocioni
Andres Nocioni
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced international small forward Andres Nocioni (199-79, currently plays in Spain). He led Caja Laboral to a 2-point victory over the league outsider Lagun Aro GBC (1-10) 71-69 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. Nocioni was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 14 rebounds in 33 minutes on the court. Caja Laboral Vitoria (8-3) is placed seventh in the ACB. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Nocioni's first year with the team. Nocioni belongs to league's top scorers and is ranked #6 with 15.0ppg. He also averaged so far 6.1rpg, 2FGP: 56.7%(34-60), 3FGP: 64.3%(18-28) in the 10 games he played so far. Nocioni has a dual citizenship: Italian and Argentinian. Ex-Penarol Mar del Plata player is currently a member of the Argentinian senior national team.

Luis Scola
Luis Scola
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Luis Scola (206-80, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Phoenix Suns (7-15) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Scola's very good performance the Phoenix Suns were badly defeated 117-99 on the road by the Los Angeles Clippers. He recorded a double-double by scoring 18 points and getting 10 rebounds. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Scola has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 12.9ppg, 6.9rpg, 1.6apg, 2FGP: 48.8% and FT: 81.6%. Scola is another player who holds two passports: Argentinian and Spanish. He is in the roster of the Argentinian senior national team.

Emanuel Ginobili
Emanuel Ginobili
   #3. The Argentinian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international shooting guard Emanuel Ginobili (198-77, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in NBA). Ginobili led San Antonio Spurs to an easy victory against the Charlotte Bobcats (7-12) crushing them 132-102 in the NBA on Saturday night. He scored 11 points, had 4 rebounds and dished 7 assists in a mere 19 minutes. The San Antonio Spurs have quite an impressive 17-4 record this season. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Ginobili is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his 11th year in Spurs' roster. Ginobili has very impressive stats this season: 11.6ppg, 3.3rpg, 4.4apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 47.7%, 3FGP: 32.9% and FT: 81.5% in the 18 games. He has both Argentinian and Italian nationalities.

He scored 15 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 3 assists. The Houston Rockets have 9-10 record this season. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Delfino has relatively good stats this season: 9.3ppg, 3.8rpg and 2.1apg. He also holds two passports: Argentinian and Italian. Delfino is also Argentinian national team player.

Pablo Prigioni

Despite Garino's very good performance the G.Washington lost 68-72 in Peoria, IL to the Bradley University. He scored 24 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and made 3 blocks in 31 minutes. It's Garino's first season with the team. This year Garino has relatively solid stats: 11.7ppg, 3.1rpg, 3.0apg and 1.4spg in the nine games.

He is an international player who is currently on the senior Argentinian National Team roster.

Former U17 international center Matias Bortolin (205-93, another player represented by Interperformances, currently plays in Austria), who plays in the Austrian A Bundesliga couldn't help the league outsider Arkadia Lions (0-10) in their last game. Despite Bortolin's good performance the bottom-ranked Arkadia Lions were edged 76-74 on the opponent's court by the one of league's weakest teams (#10) St.Polten. He scored 14 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, passed 4 assists and added 3 blocks in 25 minutes. Bortolin is ranked second on the list of the best blockers in the league with 1.3bpg. He also averaged so far 11.2ppg, 6.8rpg, 3.1apg and 1.4spg in the nine games. Bortolin used to play for the Argentinian U17 national team two years ago.
