Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Russians who are currently playing abroad.
   #1. This week’s number one is former international forward Valery Likhodey (205-86, agency: Alti Sport, currently plays in Poland). He was the major contributor in Anwil‘s victory against the closely-ranked MKS Dabrowa Gornicza (6-6) crushing them 101-81 in the Polish EBL in Saturday night’s game.
Likhodey recorded 15 points and added 4 passes in 24 minutes on the court.
Anwil Wloclawek (7-3) is placed fifth in the EBL.
It was his team’s fifth consecutive victory in a row.
But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.
It’s Likhodey’s first year with the team.
He has relatively good stats this season: 12.3ppg, 3.7rpg, 2.0apg, 1.1spg, 3FGP: 40.4% and FT: 63.2% in nine games he played so far.
Likhodey played for the Russian senior national team four years ago.

   #2. Second place goes to former U20 international forward Benjamin-Pavel Dudu (198-91, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov, currently plays in Belarus). He led COR-Borisfen to an easy victory against one of league’s weakest teams Prinemanye (1-11) crushing them 137-72 in the Belarusian Premier League in Saturday night’s game.
Dudu scored 18 points and added 4 assists.
COR-Borisfen Mogilev (11-2) is placed third in the Premier League.
It was his team’s sixth consecutive victory in a row.
This season Dudu has relatively solid stats: 13.3ppg, 6.0rpg, 2.1apg, 2.2spg, 2FGP: 68.8%(44-64), 3FGP: 30.3% and FT: 68.3%.
