"Sixers Overseas" is your weekly update on 76ers prospects who are spanning the globe, from Turkey to Australia and everywhere in between.

Dario Saric: Saric had just one game this past week, but he certainly made the most of it. Anadolu Efes took on TED Kolejliler in a local derby and edged out a two point victory, 69-67. In 31 minutes of action, the Sixers first round pick dropped 23 points on 6-11 shooting (8-8 FT), 9 rebounds, and 2 steals. You can catch highlights of the game here. Saric's averages on the season are up to 12.5 points per game on 52.8% shooting, and 6 rebounds per game.

Jordan McRae: Down in Australia the Sixers second round pick is still gunslinging. McRae's team played three games this past week (including one on Thanksgiving), and kicked things off with a loss to the New Zealand Breakers, 80-72. The former Tennessee standout scored 19 points on 8-20 from the floor (2-3 3PT), 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. you can see those highlights here. Melbourne rebounded against DeAndre Daniels and the Perth Wildcats, and McRae put together a much more efficient performance. He scored 21 points on 7-13 shooting to go with 3 rebounds and 3 assists. McRae continued to fire away Thursday in a win over the Adelaide 36ers, 94-91. He was 8-17 from the field, including 3-8 from beyond the arc, for 23 points. He's now averaging 22.3 points per game in nearly 31 minutes of action this year.

Arsalan Kazemi: After missing several games due to a work visa issue, Kazemi returned to China and the Chongqing Fly Dragon for their November 23rd matchup. While the former Oregon forward didn't shoot well (just 2-8 FG), he went 11-12 from the line and finished with 15 points. He also added 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Kazemi still struggled to find his stroke as Chongqing returned to action Friday, finishing with 10 points on 4-8 shooting, as well as 15 rebounds.
