Petteri Koponen
Petteri Koponen
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Petteri Koponen (194-88, currently plays in Euroleague). He led his Russian team Khimky to a victory against the closely-ranked Panathinaikos (2-3) 79-67 in the Euroleague in Friday night's game. Koponen scored 12 points in 22 minutes on the court. BC Khimky Moscow Region (3-2) is placed third in group A. This year Koponen averages: 6.0ppg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 46.2%, 3FGP: 28.6% in the five games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.

   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Sasu Salin (192-91, currently plays in Adriatic League). Salin contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider Szolnok (2-6) crushing them 83-63 in the Adriatic League last Sunday. He scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Union Olimpija Ljubljana (4-4) is placed eighth in the Adriatic League. They ended the series of three consecutive loses. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Salin is currently first on the league's list of most steals. His overall stats this season are: 7.4ppg, 3.4rpg, 2.1spg, 2FGP: 33.3%, 3FGP: 37.9%. Salin is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team.

   #3. The Finnish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Teemu Rannikko (189-80, currently plays in Adriatic League) is a teammate of previously mentioned Sasu Salin and both played together in the last Adriatic League game. Rannikko contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider Szolnok (2-6) crushing them 83-63. He scored 9 points and added 4 passes (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line) in 21 minutes. It's Rannikko's first season with the team. Rannikko belongs to league's best passers and is ranked #4 with 3.9apg. This year his other stats are: 5.9ppg, 1.6rpg, 1.4spg, 3FGP: 31.8% and FT: 91.7%(22-24) in the eight games.

Gerald Lee
Gerald Lee
   #4. Center Gerald Lee (208-87, college: ODU, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Montenegro could not help Buducnost (0-1) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite his very good performance Buducnost was defeated in an overtime 85-78 on the road by the leading Gescrap BB. Lee was the top scorer with 17 points. He also added 5 rebounds and 3 assists. It was his first game for Buducnost this season. Lee is a naturalized American. He is also Finnish national team player. Strangely Lee has never played in Finland.

Ville Kaunisto

   #5. International forward Ville Kaunisto (205-82, currently plays in France) contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider CFBB (0-8) crushing them 102-81 in the French NM1 (third division) last Saturday. He scored 16 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 32 minutes. ADA Blois Basket (6-0) is placed first in the NM1. So far his team won all six games in the Regular Season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Kaunisto is currently sixth on the list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Kaunisto averages: 16.7ppg, 12.7rpg, 2.2apg and 1.2bpg in the six games. He plays currently for the Finnish national team.

Ahonen recorded 9 points and added 4 passes. But Solna Vikings was edged 94-91 in Boras by the leading Basket. It was Solna Vikings' third consecutive loss in a row.

Huff cannot count it as his best performance. He recorded only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 16 minutes. Vanoli Cremona was crushed 87-60 on the opponent's court by the much higher-ranked (#3) Cantu. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go.
