BYU international basketball tracker: Jimmer Fredette ends season with 50-point game; Plaisted lands in Japan

While the Chinese season has ended for Jimmer Fredette — his Shanghai Sharks got bounced in the first round of the CBA playoffs — many of the former Cougars are still in the middle of regular season play.

Some of the players still in action are producing on good teams while others have had a difficult time finding consistent minutes and production.

Here is a look at where the former Cougars are playing around the world and how they have performed recently.


Charles Abouo, Denain (France-ProB)

After a bit of a scoring slump, Abouo had one of his most productive games of the season in an 80-73 win over Provence Basket. In the seven-point victory, he recorded 19 points on 5 for 8 shooting from the floor, including 2 for 4 from beyond the arc and 7 for 10 from the foul line. He added five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 28 minutes.

In 21 games, he is averaging 8.9 points on 46.9 percent shooting from the floor, including 43.5 percent from 3-point range with 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 19.2 minutes.


Rashaun Broadus, Vechta, (Germany-BBL)

Broadus has struggled with his shot, but has done a nice job as a facilitator since heading to Germany. His best recent showing was in a 92-74 loss to Ludwigsburg when he totaled a team-best five assists to go along with two points and a pair of steals in 15 minutes.

In seven games, he is averaging 4.6 points, 4.9 assists, 1.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 19.6 minutes.


Matt Carlino, Vanoli Cremona (Italy-Serie A)

Carlino has had some really nice performances as Vanoli Cremona has won two of its last three games. His best outing recently came in a 91-82 win over Reyer Venezia when he registered 14 points on the strength of a 6 for 6 shooting night at the foul line while adding six rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes.

In five games in Spain, he averaged 14.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 26 minutes.

In 12 games in Italy, he is averaging 7.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 18 minutes.


Brandon Davies, Monaco (France-ProA)

Davies is still making nice contributions for the top team in France. His best performance recently came in an 88-77 win over Le Mans when he recorded 14 points on 5 for 7 shooting from the floor, including a make on his only 3-point attempt and 3 for 4 from the foul line. He also chipped in with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 20 minutes.

In 14 French league games, he is averaging 9.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 19.6 minutes.

In eight Basketball Champions League games, he is averaging 7.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.3 assists in 19.9 minutes.


Jimmer Fredette, Shanghai Sharks (China-CBA)

After missing the first game of the playoffs for the birth of his daughter, Fredette was back on the floor for the last four games in the series and put up some monster numbers. His best playoff showing came in a 102-95 overtime loss when he totaled 50 points on 14 of 32 shooting from the floor and 20 for 20 from the foul line. He added 10 rebounds and a pair of assists in 50:32.

On the season, he averaged 37.3 points on 48.1 percent shooting from the floor, including 41.1 percent from 3-point range and 92.8 percent from the free-throw line. He also contributed 7.9 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.7 steals in 39.3 minutes to earn the CBA international MVP.

In the playoffs, he put up 40.3 points a game with 11.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.3 steals in 45.3 minutes.


Tyler Haws, Anwil (Poland-TBL)

Haws is still sidelined after breaking his cheekbone in practice more than a month ago.

In 16 games, he is averaging 9.9 points on 53.3 percent shooting from inside the arc and 90 percent from the free-throw line. He also chips in with 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 21.6 minutes.


Trent Plaisted, Alvark Tokyo (Japan-B League)

After spending the early part of the 2016-17 in Germany before his team folded, Plaisted has found a new home with one of the top teams in Japan. His best effort so far was in a 89-73 win over Tochigi Brex when he totaled nine points on 4 for 6 shooting from the field and 1 for 2 from the foul line. He also contributed six rebounds and a steal in 15 minutes.

In four games in Japan, he is averaging 3.3 points on 54.5 percent shooting from the floor with 3.8 rebounds in 11.3 minutes.


Jonathan Tavernari, Mens Sana (Italy-Serie A2)

Tavernari has gone cold from beyond the arc as Mens Sana dropped its last two games. His most productive recent outing came in a loss to Rieti when he finished with three points, a team-best 10 rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes.

In 23 games, he is averaging 10 points and 4.7 rebounds in 28.5 minutes.
