TBT Overseas Roundup 11.2.18

TBT'ers are dominating all over the world

From Europe, to South America, to Asia, the overseas basketball season is well underway. Naturally, it has not taken long for some of TBT's biggest stars to separate themselves from the pack. Let's check in and see what our guys are up to all around the world!

Mike Davis (PrimeTime Players) - Belfast Star (Ireland)

This one is a bit outdated, but better late than never. Davis earned Irish Super League Player of the Week honors after dropping 39 points and five rebounds on the DCU Saints on October 20. The PrimeTime Players guard is averaging 27.7 ppg on the young season, which is good for second best in the league.


Quincy Diggs (Matadors) - Kolossos HH (Greece)

If the beginning of the season is any indication, Diggs could be in for a career year. The Matadors swingman scored a season-high 18 points against Ifestos in Greek League action on Saturday. His efforts landed him a spot on the Greek A1 Interperformances Players of the Week list.


Darnell Dodson (Cancer Plus 1) - Osorno (Chile)

Dodson is absolutely dominating the competition in Chile. In the team's first four games, the former Kentucky Wildcat turned Southern Mississippi Golden Eagle is averaging 27 ppg and 13 rpg. That dominance continued over the weekend, when he racked up 32 points and 18 rebounds against AB Ancud on Saturday and followed it up with a 26-point, 16-rebound performance against CD Castro on Sunday.


Kyle Fogg (Overseas Elite) - Guangzhou Long-Lions (China)

What else can we say about Kyle Fogg at this point? The good times keep on rolling for the two-time TBT MVP, who is averaging 27 ppg, 9 rpg and 6.8 apg in his second season with Guangzhou. On Halloween night, Fogg scored a season-high 34 points in a 106-101 win over Xinjiang.


Jimmer Fredette (Team Fredette) - Shanghai Sharks (China)

Similar to Fogg, it's hard to put into words just how good Jimmer is at basketball. Currently sitting fifth in the CBA at 35.4 ppg, Jimmer poured in a season-high 39 points in a 117-103 win over Jiangsu on Wednesday night. He has scored at least 30 points in each of his first five games this season.


Thomas Gipson (Purple & Black) - Karesi Spor (Turkey)

He was given an opportunity and he capitalized on it. After getting less than 20 minutes of playing time in each of his first two games, Purple & Black forward Thomas Gipson was awarded 31 minutes of action on Saturday night. Gipson scored 32 points on 11-12 shooting from the floor. He also grabbed 15 rebounds and even recorded two steals. 


Marcus Hall (Team Colorado) - Selcuklu Belediyesi (Turkey)

Back for a seventh season in Turkey, the TBT 2016 All-Tournament Team member is quickly solidifying himself as one of the best players the country has ever seen. Hall had his best game of the young season on Sunday, scoring 23 points on 7-8 shooting from the field in an 88-78 win over Final Spor. He is averaging 15 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 6.7 apg in three contests. 


Jordan Hamilton (Team Challenge ALS) - Germani Brescia Leonessa (Italy)

TBT fans who got their first look at Hamilton last summer will surely not be surprised to see him dominating Italy. The forward from Texas has been wildly consistent, averaging 15.5 ppg and  3.8 rpg in Serie A play and 15.8 ppg and 5.6 rpg in EuroCup play. The 2011 Dallas Mavericks draft pick scored a season-high 23 points against Ratiopharm on Tuesday.


Ryan Rossiter (Saints Alive) - Tochigi Brex (Japan)

When you've played 10 games and only once scored less than 20 points, it's safe to say that you're a certified superstar. Meet Ryan Rossiter. The Saints Alive big man is averaging 26.6 ppg and 11.2 rpg for Tochigi Brex in Japan's B League. His latest heroics came on Monday night, when Rossiter had 25 points and 11 rebounds in a blowout win over Levanga Hokkaido Sapporo.


Brandon Triche (Boeheim's Army) - Orlandina (Italy)

It's hard to imagine that Boeheim's Army fans are not salivating at the numbers Triche is putting up in Italy. In Orlandina's first five games, Triche is averaging 25.2 ppg, 5.8 rpg and 6 apg. Triche logged his second highest point total of the season on Sunday night, racking up 29 in a 77-67 win over FCL Legnano. His efforts landed him a spot on the Italian Serie A2 Players of the Week list.
