Friends, I am on my way to Vaasa to run a little clinic about offensive basketball. Taking this trip by train and it is absolutely a great way to travel: Good seat, internet connection, and time to work. Just finished ToPos next scouting report (opponent Korihait, at their place-tough), went through some statistical analysis about our game (seeing improvement) and now I am doing this, writing the blog (and enjoying it).

These clinics are just great and refreshing for me and definately educational for me also. And a great chance to meet basketball people U do not meet on regular basis.
Lets take the the city I am travelling to, Vaasa. They do not have that strong of a team in Finnish competition system, mens team playing in division 2 (3rd level), but they have basketball tradition there, having produced some good players, best one being Olli Ahvenniemi. Hopefully I can help these nice people with their thing and the local club will produce 1-2 Ahvenniemis in the future.

ToPo then? Well, in my last blog I wrote that our next three games will show us what we are made of...lost all three, so maybe I should have not written anything about those games? We played two horrible games, but in the last one of those three we did really well ( at Joensuu), taking the best team in the league to the wire. Lost that one, but still were happy with our discipline and execution. Took the positive from that loss and won the next three games (LrNMKY, Kouvot and Salo). So right now we are 16-13 and fighting for the homecourt advantage for the playoffs.

There are some new faces in Helsinki wearing ToPo uniform: Josh Wilson has played six games for us and is getting used to the Finnish game and producing. Justin Hawkins joiden the team last Thursday, played on Friday and will be a great help for us in 'the hunt of the Panther ' (AKA championship trophy). Now we are all set and will be ready for a real tough schedule we have ahead of us: Sunday 19.2 at Uusikaupunki, Wednesday 22nd at Kotka, Friday 24th vs Loimaa! After that we will have a break for 11 days (!) before travelling to Tampere. Weird schedule... but cannot do anything about it, has to see the positive: We will have a lot of time to focus on our stuff.

Now need to stop writing, I am almost at Vaasa (west coast of Finland), will take a little Sauna at the hotel and at 5PM will start talking.

Respect the game!

Salon Vilpas managed to win third quarter 21-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Lapuan Korikobrat ma...   [read more]

Petteri Koponen selected the top Finn playing abroad in last week's games - 5 days ago
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Finns who are currently playing abroad. This week's number one is an international point guard Petteri Koponen (194-88). He could not help FC Barcelona (7-10) in their last game. Despite Koponen's very good performance the 12th-placed FC Barcelona (7-10) was edged 69-67 at home by the much higher-ranked (#3) Olympiacos in the group A of Euroleague.    [read more]
