KATHERINE PLOUFFE
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.


Katherine Plouffe
Katherine Plouffe
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Katherine Plouffe (190-92, college: Marquette, currently plays in France). She led Bourges to a victory over the league leader Bretagne Basket (10-12) 91-75 in the French LFB in Wednesday night's game. Plouffe was MVP of the game. She recorded 20 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists in 31 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Tango Bourges Basket (18-4) is placed third in the LFB. It was her team's ninth consecutive victory in a row. This year Plouffe averages: 9.7ppg, 4.7rpg, 2.0apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 48.9%, 3FGP: 36.4% in 22 games she played so far. She played for the Canadian senior national team two years ago.

Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe
Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe (188-91, college: Simon Fraser, currently plays in France) is a teammate of previously mentioned Katherine Plouffe and both played together in the last French LFB game. Raincock-Ekunwe contributed to an easy victory against the league leader Bretagne Basket (10-12) 91-75. She recorded 12 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Raincock-Ekunwe has relatively good stats this season: 11.3ppg, 6.0rpg, 1.4apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 68.8%(99-144), 3FGP: 32.1% and FT: 57.7%. She is in the roster of the Canadian senior national team.

Miranda Ayim
Miranda Ayim
   #3. The Canadian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Miranda Ayim (191-88, college: Pepperdine, currently plays in France). Ayim was the main contributor in a Basket Landes' victory against the closely-ranked Lattes Montpellier (16-6) 66-54 in the French LFB on Saturday night. She was the best player in that game. Ayim scored 16 points, grabbed 6 boards, dished 3 assists and stole 5 balls in 28 minutes. Basket Landes (12-10) is placed seventh in the LFB. It's Ayim's fourth season with the team. This year she has relatively solid stats: 13.0ppg, 5.0rpg, 1.1apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 51.3%, 3FGP: 34.2% and FT: 72.7% in 24 games. Ayim is also a member of the Canadian senior national team.

Michelle Plouffe
Michelle Plouffe
   #4. Forward Michelle Plouffe (193-92, agency: Basket Promotion Agency, college: Utah, currently plays in France) contributed to an easy victory against the eighth-ranked Tarbes (9-13) crushing them 82-61 in the French LFB in Saturday night's game. She scored 12 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line). Union Lyon Basket Feminin (18-4) is placed second in the LFB. It was her team's third consecutive victory in a row. It's Plouffe's first season with the team. Plouffe has reliable stats this year: 11.8ppg, 6.1rpg, 3.6apg and 1.7spg. She is also Canadian national team player.

Jamie Weisner-Scott
Jamie Weisner-Scott
   #5. International small forward Jamie Weisner-Scott (178-94, agency: LBM Management, college: Oregon St., currently plays in Russia) contributed to a Dynamo NR's victory against the closely-ranked Inventa (10-8) 85-74 in the Russian PBL last Monday. Weisner-Scott was the top player that evening. She scored 25 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and dished 5 assists in 40 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Weisner-Scott's third season in pro basketball. Dynamo Novosibirsk Region (5-13) is placed eighth in the PBL. Weisner-Scott has individually a very good year with high stats. She averages: 18.9ppg, 5.9rpg, 2.1apg and 1.8spg in 17 games. Weisner-Scott plays currently for the Canadian national team.

Miah-Marie Langlois
Miah-Marie Langlois
   #6. Point guard Miah-Marie Langlois (173-91, college: Windsor, currently plays in Russia) is a teammate of previously mentioned Jamie Weisner-Scott. But that was another game of her team in Russian PBL which we would like to mention. Langlois was the major contributor in a Dynamo NR's victory against the league outsider Dynamo Moscow (0-18) crushing them 84-64. She recorded 22 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals. Dynamo Novosibirsk Region (5-13) is placed eighth in the PBL. Langlois' stats this season are: 12.0ppg, 4.3rpg, 4.7apg and 2.7spg.

Despite her good performance Dafni Agioy was edged 79-76 in a derby game by the lower-ranked (#6) Panionios. Brown recorded 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 39 minutes. They ended the series of four consecutive victories. Her team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Brown's stats this year are: 14.5ppg, 5.6rpg and 1.2apg in 22 games. She used to play for the Canadian national team five years ago.

Kimberley Gaucher-Smith
Kimberley Gaucher-Smith

Despite her very good performance in Saturday night's game Gaucher-Smith was the top scorer with 15 points. She also added 6 rebounds and dished 3 assists. Gaucher-Smith is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's her fourth year in Mondeville's roster. Gaucher-Smith averaged so far 11.7ppg, 5.7rpg, 2.3apg and 1.1spg. She plays currently for the Canadian national team.

Alexandria Kiss-Rusk
Alexandria Kiss-Rusk
   #9.

Kiss-Rusk scored 6 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 31 minutes. BC Pharmaserv Marburg lost 59-66 on the road to the second-ranked Gruner Stern Keltern. Kiss-Rusk averaged so far 12.5ppg, 8.6rpg, 1.7apg and 1.4bpg in 25 games. She is also in the roster of the Canadian national team.

Shona Thorburn
Shona Thorburn
   #10. Point guard Shona Thorburn (178-82, another player represented by Basket Promotion Agency, college: Utah, currently plays in France) is a teammate of previously mentioned Kimberley Gaucher-Smith. However that was another game of her team in French LFB which brought her to that list. Thorburn helped Mondeville win their game against the closely-ranked Hainaut (7-15) 73-58. She recorded 11 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. USO Mondeville (2-20) closes the standings in the LFB. Thorburn's overall stats this season are: 7.1ppg, 4.1rpg, 5.3apg and 1.1spg. She is a former international player as three years ago she still played for the Canadian senior national team.

   #11. Former U19 international forward Samantha Cooper (188-95, college: Fairfield, currently plays in Luxembourg) helped Grengewald win their game against the second-ranked Amicale 51-45 in the Luxembourg Total League on Saturday night. Cooper had a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting 16 rebounds in 40 minutes. Cooper has very impressive stats this year: 20.4ppg, 13.5rpg and 2.4apg in 25 games. She used to play for the Canadian U19 national team six years ago.


The list of other players, who all have Canadian passport but never been selected to any of Canadian national teams:

   #1. Kim Pierre-Louis (183-F/C-93, college: Massachusetts, currently plays in Germany) led Gruner Stern Keltern to a victory over the closely-ranked BC Pharmaserv Marburg (15-5) 66-59 in the German DBBL in Wednesday night's game. Pierre-Louis was the top player that evening. She scored 15 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 27 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Gruener Stern Keltern (15-5) is placed second in the DBBL. It was her team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. Pierre-Louis' stats this year are: 14.1ppg and 7.5rpg in 24 games she played so far.

   #2. Sara Simovic (173-G-95, agency: BeoBasket, college: UFV, currently plays in Croatia) contributed to a Pula C.Tours' victory against the closely-ranked ZKK Split (14-8) 78-69 in the Croatian Prva Liga last Tuesday. She scored 12 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and dished 4 assists. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. ZKK Pula Crnja Tours (16-6) is placed fourth in the Prva Liga. It was her team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Simovic averaged so far 12.7ppg, 5.6rpg, 2.8apg and 1.8spg.

   #3. Experienced Rachael Vanderwal (175-G-83, college: Boston U., currently plays in Spain). Vanderwal could not help Gernika (18-8) to beat Valencia (16-10). She scored 5 points and added 3 assists in 23 minutes. Gernika was crushed 75-49 at home by the lower-ranked (#4) Valencia. This year Vanderwal's overall stats are: 7.7ppg, 3.2rpg and 2.5apg in 29 games. She has a dual citizenship: Canadian and British.

   #4. Melissa Rondinelli (184-F/C-91, college: Western, currently plays in Belgium) was not able to help Laarne in their game against Jeugd Gentson (8-19) in the Belgian Top Division Women. Rondinelli cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. She recorded only 2 points and blocked 2 shots. Laarne was defeated 53-44 on their home court in Laarne by the lower-ranked Jeugd Gentson (#10). Rondinelli's team will play only one more game in the Play-Out Round. And that game will be critical. Rondinelli averaged so far 12.3ppg, 4.2rpg and 1.5bpg. She is another player who holds two passports: Canadian and Italian.

   #5. Rachael Bland (, college: Lakehead, currently plays in United Kingdom) was not able to secure a victory for Newcastle Eagles (20-10) in their game against Mystics (14-8) in the British WBBL.

Bland's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. Bland's overall stats this season are: 3.1ppg, 4.4rpg, 2.3apg and 1.1spg.
