C.J. Fair (Boeheim’s Army) The Boeheim’s Army forward is playing professionally in France this year with Lemoges CSP, where he’s averaging about 11.5 points and close to six rebounds per game. Fair is one of the team’s top rebounders and scoring threats. His offensive skill set enables him to be a mismatch for opposing teams. He can shoot the ball from anywhere, take his man off the bounce and can post up.
Ricardo Ratliffe (757 Grain) The scorer from 757 Grain is having a tremendous year for the Seoul Samsung Thunders in South Korea. Ratliffe is most recently coming off a 29-point, 19-rebound performance. He had led his team to a 25-11 record, good enough for first place in the league. Ratliffe has only turned the ball over twice in the last 75 minutes of action. Top five in the league in scoring, rebounding, and blocked shots, the former Missouri Tiger is at a staggering 70 percent from the field.
Dwight Buycks (Golden Eagles Alumni) A Marquette product and a featured guard for the Golden Eagles Alumni, Buycks is having a solid all-around season in China. Buycks is playing for Fujian QB where he is averaging over 22 points, six assists and five rebounds per game. The combo guard is shooting over 50 percent from the field and also making the most of his opportunities at the foul line.
Reggie Redding (SuperNOVA) Redding is playing in the top league in Germany this season. His team FC Bayern Muenchen is 16-3 overall, which is good for third place in the league. In the Eurocup standings, Muenchen is 6-0 in pool play. Redding, the consistent starter in the shooting guard spot, is averaging close to 11 points per game to go along with 4.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds.
Cameron Clark (The Untouchables) For the past few weeks, Cameron Clark from The Untouchables has been untouchable himself. Since Christmas Eve, Clark hasn’t scored less than 25 points in a single contest. With his play, Chalon in France is in 2nd place out of 18 teams. Clark is also grabbing close to seven rebounds per night.
Bradley Wanamaker (The Untouchables)- The TBT Podcast mainstay was named one of Europe's players of the month after averaging 13 ppg and 3 rpg in eight games for Darussafaka (Turkey). In addition to an uncanny ability to get to the hoop, the Pittsburgh alum has been getting it done from range, shooting 56% from three-point land in the month of January. Wanamaker plays alongside Will Clyburn (Armored Athlete), Marcus Slaughter (LAUNFD) and Luke Harangody (Notre Dame Fighting Alumni) under coach David Blatt.
