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


Andrew Wiggins
Andrew Wiggins
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Andrew Wiggins (203-95, college: Kansas, currently plays in NBA). He could not help the Minnesota Timberwolves (31-49) in their last game. Despite Wiggins' very good performance the Minnesota Timberwolves (31-49) were edged 110-109 on the road by the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the top scorer with 41 points in 38 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Wiggins' third season in pro basketball. It was Timberwolves' fourth consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Wiggins has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 23.7ppg, 4.1rpg, 2.3apg, 2FGP: 47.6%, 3FGP: 35.8% and FT: 76.4% in 80 games he played so far. Wiggins played for the Canadian senior national team two years ago.

Jamal Murray
Jamal Murray
   #2. Second place goes to former international swingman Jamal Murray (198-97, college: Kentucky, currently plays in NBA). He led Denver Nuggets to a victory over the New Orleans Pelicans (33-47) 122-106 in the NBA last Friday. Murray was MVP of the game. He scored 30 points (!!!), had 4 rebounds and dished 5 assists (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line); not bad, considering it's only Murray's third season in pro basketball. The Denver Nuggets have 38-42 record this season. There are only two games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Murray's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 9.7ppg, 2.6rpg, 1.9apg, 2FGP: 46.7%, 3FGP: 33.0% and FT: 88.0%. Murray played for the Canadian national team in 2015.

Kevin Pangos
Kevin Pangos
   #3. The Canadian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international point guard Kevin Pangos (188-93, college: Gonzaga, currently plays in Euroleague). He was the main contributor in Zalgiris' victory against the closely-ranked Baskonia (17-13) 84-79 in the Euroleague on Thursday night. Pangos was the best player in that game. He scored 15 points, had 5 boards, dished 4 assists and stole 3 balls (went 6 for 6 at the free throw line) in 27 minutes. B.C. Zalgiris Kaunas (14-16) is placed tenth in the Euroleague.
