The cream of the crop as far as Huskies abroad are concerned. Williams, known as a pass-first player at UConn, has become a score and shot heavy lead guard in Europe. Occasionally the old passing wizard Marcus comes out.
Armstrong has played all over the world, including a good amount of run in the NBA. He may have finally found his Euro home in Istanbul, where he's become a productive player on one of Turkey's best teams.
El-Amin has had quite a career with stop in what seems like almost every country in Europe. He'll be remembered most recently in European lore when he made this amazing game winner in the Euroleague versus Spanish power Baskonia.

Brown is playing in Romania, which at first though you might think is a horrible league. While it's not the highest level of Europe, there is some decent competition in the league and a few teams that can compete against good teams from across Europe. Don't sleep on Romania.
Dyson is Williams’ biggest threat for the top of Husky mountain in Europe. Two years ago he led the Israeli league in scoring, last season he was one of the best guards in Italy, and this year he got signed by one of the best teams in Italy, which also happens to play in the Euroleague. Look out, Dyson can get buckets and he also plays on an island in the Mediterranean. Does it get any better?

Giffey, being German, got onto an incredible team for a rookie. I've seen Alba play three times this year already in person and Giffey has been doing his trademarks things, knocking down clutch threes and hustling on defense. He is starting every game and looks to have seamlessly transitioned from Germany to UConn and back to Germany.
