Here is the weekly review of the top performing U.S. Virgin Islands players, who play currently abroad.


Walter Hodge
Walter Hodge
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Walter Hodge (183-86, college: Florida, currently plays in France). He led ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket to a 1-point victory over the closely-ranked JDA Dijon (10-18) 74-73 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. Hodge was MVP of the game. He recorded 19 points and added 4 passes in 24 minutes on the court. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (14-14) is placed ninth in the ProA. It's Hodge's first season with the team. Hodge has relatively good stats this year: 13.0ppg, 1.8rpg, 5.7apg, 2FGP: 55.8%(82-147), 3FGP: 41.7% and FT: 79.5% in 28 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rican. Hodge is currently a member of the U.S. Virgin Islands senior national team.

Ivan Aska
   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Ivan Aska (201-90, college: Murray St., currently plays in Greece). He led PAOK to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Lavrio (11-15) 82-65 in the Greek A1 last Wednesday. Aska recorded 13 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. PAOK Thessaloniki (14-12) is placed fifth in the A1. This season Aska has relatively solid stats: 10.4ppg, 5.0rpg, 2FGP: 51.2% and FT: 71.4%.

   #3. The U.S. Virgin Islands player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Frank Elegar (208-86, college: Drexel, currently plays in VTB United League). He led his Russian team Enisey to a victory against the tenth-ranked Avtodor (7-16) 97-92 in the VTB United League on Sunday night. Elegar had a double-double by scoring 12 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 3 assists, 3 blocks and 3 steals (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) in 31 minutes. Enisey Krasnoyarsk (13-10) is placed sixth in group A. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the VTB United League Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Elegar has reliable stats this year: 13.8ppg, 9.4rpg, 1.5apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 67.2%(88-131) and FT: 72.3% in 20 games.

Craig Williams
Craig Williams
   #4. Center Craig Williams (206-89, college: TCU, currently plays in Japan) could not help Orange Vikings (27-27) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance the fourth-placed Orange Vikings (27-27) were edged 75-73 on the road by the second-ranked Dragonflies in the West group. Williams was the top scorer with 30 points. He also added 6 rebounds and made 2 blocks. Williams' stats this season are: 13.4ppg, 8.3rpg and 1.6apg. He is also U.S. Virgin Islands national team player.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has U.S. Virgin Islands passport:

   #1. Marcus Georges-Hunt (196-F-94, agency: Pensack Sports, college: Georgia Tech, currently plays in NBA) managed to help Orlando Magic in a victory against the Detroit Pistons (36-45) 113-109 in the NBA last Wednesday. Georges-Hunt scored only 4 points in 10 minutes. The Orlando Magic has 29-53 record this season. The Regular Season already ended in the NBA. This year Georges-Hunt averages: 2.8ppg and 1.8rpg in five games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: U.S. Virgin Islands and American.
