Kyle Wiltjer
KYLE WILTJER
Here is the weekly review of the top performing Canadian players, who play currently abroad.


Kyle Wiltjer
Kyle Wiltjer
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Kyle Wiltjer (208-92, college: Gonzaga, currently plays in Greece). He led Olympiacos to a victory over the closely-ranked Promitheas (17-9) crushing them 104-69 in the Greek A1 in Sunday night's game. Wiltjer was MVP of the game. He scored 23 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 25 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Wiltjer's second season in pro basketball. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (22-0) is placed first in the A1. So far his team won all twenty two games in the Regular Season. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Wiltjer's first year with the team. This season he averages: 8.0ppg, 3.0rpg, 2FGP: 38.9%, 3FGP: 45.5%(25-55) and FT: 81.0% in 15 games he played so far. Wiltjer played for the Canadian senior national team three years ago.

Melvin Ejim

   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Melvin Ejim (201-91, college: Iowa St., currently plays in VTB United League). He was the main contributor in an Unics Kazan's victory against the closely-ranked Zenit (16-8) 99-82 in the VTB United League last Wednesday. Ejim was the best player in that game. He scored 16 points, had 5 rebounds, passed 3 assists and added 3 blocks. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Unics Kazan (22-2) is placed first in the VTB United League. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the VTB United League Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Ejim's overall stats this season are: 8.4ppg, 5.2rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 56.1%(55-98), 3FGP: 32.2% and FT: 79.5%. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Nigerian.
