Petteri Koponen selected the top Finn playing abroad in last week's games - Nov 21, 2012


POSTED BY:

Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Finns who are currently playing abroad.


Petteri Koponen
Petteri Koponen
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Petteri Koponen (194-88, currently plays in VTB United League). He managed to help BC Khimky Moscow Region in a victory against the ninth-ranked Kalev/Cramo (1-5) 77-67 in the VTB United League in Monday night's game. Koponen scored 5 points and added 4 passes in 21 minutes on the court. BC Khimky Moscow Region (5-1) is placed second in group A. It's Koponen's first season with the team. This year he averages: 4.2ppg, 1.3rpg, 2.5apg, 2FGP: 35.7%, 3FGP: 33.3% in the six games he played so far. Koponen is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Gerald Lee
Gerald Lee
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Gerald Lee (208-87, college: ODU, currently plays in Adriatic League). He led his Montenegrin team Buducnost to a victory over one of league's weakest teams KK Zadar (3-6) 76-60 in the Adriatic League last Saturday. Lee was MVP of the game. He scored 15 points and grabbed 4 rebounds; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Lee's third season in pro basketball. KK Buducnost Voli Podgorica (5-4) is placed fourth in the Adriatic League. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Lee has relatively good stats this year: 10.9ppg, 4.8rpg, 2FGP: 56.2%(41-73) and FT: 57.1%. He is a naturalized American. Lee is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Finland.

Roope Ahonen
Roope Ahonen
   #3. The Finnish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Roope Ahonen (186-90, agency: FCM, currently plays in Sweden), who plays in the Swedish Basketligan. Ahonen could not help Solna Vikings (6-6) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Solna Vikings was edged 89-87 on the road by the lower-ranked (#8) LF Basket. Ahonen was the top scorer with 23 points (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) in 27 minutes. This year Ahonen has relatively solid stats: 10.4ppg, 1.7rpg, 3.8apg, 2FGP: 54.2%, 3FGP: 36.6% in the 12 games. He is also a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Teemu Rannikko
Teemu Rannikko
   #4. Point guard Teemu Rannikko (189-80, currently plays in Adriatic League) was not able to help Un.Olimpija (4-5) in their game against Partizan (8-0) in the Adriatic League. Rannikko's contribution was not very remarkable in Monday's game. He scored only 2 points and added 4 assists. Un.Olimpija was defeated 86-82 at home by the leading Partizan. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Rannikko is currently fifth on the list of best passers. His overall stats this season are: 5.4ppg, 1.6rpg, 3.9apg and 1.4spg. Rannikko is also Finnish national team player.

Sasu Salin
Sasu Salin
   #5. International guard Sasu Salin (192-91, currently plays in Euroleague) is a teammate of previously mentioned Teemu Rannikko. But that was another game of his team in Euroleague which we would like to mention. Salin contributed to a 2-point Un.Olimpija's victory against the closely-ranked Cantu (2-4) 81-79. He scored only 2 points in 12 minutes. Union Olimpija Ljubljana (2-4) is placed fifth in group A. They ended the series of four consecutive loses. This year Salin's overall stats are: 8.2ppg and 3.6rpg in the five games. He plays currently for the Finnish national team.

Ville Kaunisto
Ville Kaunisto
   #6. Forward Ville Kaunisto (205-82, currently plays in France), who plays in the French NM1 (third division) was not able to secure a victory for Blois (6-1) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Kaunisto's good performance Blois was defeated 74-67 in La Rochelle by the lower-ranked La Rochelle (#9). He scored 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Kaunisto belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #7) and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Kaunisto averages: 16.0ppg, 11.7rpg and 2.1apg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Finnish National Team roster.

Shawn Huff
Shawn Huff
   #7. International small forward Shawn Huff (198-84, college: Valparaiso, currently plays in Italy) couldn't help Vanoli Cremona (2-6) in their game against Armani Milano (4-4) in the Italian SerieA. Huff cannot count it as his best performance. He scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 17 minutes. Vanoli Cremona was badly defeated 78-59 in Milano by the higher-ranked (#9) Armani. It was Vanoli Cremona's third consecutive loss in a row. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Huff's total stats are: 5.1ppg and 4.5rpg in the eight games. He is also Finnish national team player.

Lauri Toivonen
Lauri Toivonen
   #8. Forward Lauri Toivonen (201-91, currently plays college basketball in the States) couldn't help the UTPA in their game against the Indiana Univ-Purdue Univ.-Ft.Wayne (0-0) in the NCAA. Toivonen cannot count Friday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points. The UTPA was edged in a triple overtime (!!!) 97-94 in Fort Wayne, IN by the Indiana Univ-Purdue Univ.-Ft.Wayne. Toivonen has averaged so far 5.1ppg and 4.5rpg. He used to play for the Finnish university national team last year.

Joonas Caven
Joonas Caven
   #9. U20 international power forward Joonas Caven (211-93, currently plays in Spain) contributed to a Prat Juventud's victory against the closely-ranked Cafes Aitona (2-3) 59-47 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) on Saturday night. Caven scored only 2 points in 7 minutes on the court. CB Prat Juventud (2-4) is placed second from the bottom (#10) in the LEB Silver. Caven has averaged so far 5.2ppg and 3.0rpg in the five games. He is also in the roster of the Finnish U20 national team.
