Hoops Capital's weekly wrap recapping the busy past few days for its basketballers around the world.

The past week has been a busy one for Hoops Capital athletes on the world stage, with numerous signing short-term deals to play in overseas competitions - especially on the Kings side.

Starting in the United States and young gun Jaylin Galloway continued to impress in the NBA G League with Wisconsin.

On March 21, King #223 Galloway tallied six points, three rebounds, one assists, one steal and one block during the Herd's 125-111 victory against the Capital City Go-Go.

Three days later, a career-high 13 points, four boards, two dimes, one steal and one block by Galloway steered the Herd to a convincing 105-85 triumph against the Raptors 905 - who featured former King Makur Maker (who added five points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks).

Next up for Galloway's Herd are the Indiana Mad Ants on March 27.

Moving to Europe and Jordi Hunter had his best game to date in Rigas Zelli colours.

The Norths Bears junior produced 14 points, six rebounds, one dime, one steal and one block in his side's thrilling 81-79 victory over BK Liepaja on Saturday.

While in Italy, newly signed Denzel Valentine is expected to make his Olimpia Milano club debut in the coming days.

In China, Jaylen Adams had 15 points, four rebounds, two dimes and two steals in his first appearance for the Liaoning Flying Leopards, who downed the Sichuan Blue Whales 113-66.

Adams' side next faces the Xinjiang Flying Tigers on March 26.


Shifting to the Flames contingent and Lauren Nicholson continues to go from strength to strength in Spain.

In the Copa Reina quarter-final, Nicholson's Spar Girona lost 72-49 despite five points, three boards and one assist from the Sutherland junior.

Girona's next fixture is now on March 28 against Celta Baloncesto.
