Here is the weekly review of the top performing Finnish players, who play currently abroad.


Gerald Lee
Gerald Lee
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Gerald Lee (208-87, college: ODU, currently plays in Adriatic League). He led his Montenegrin team Buducnost to a 2-point victory over the closely-ranked Radnicki KG (5-5) 80-78 in the Adriatic League in Saturday night's game. Lee was MVP of the game. He recorded 20 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 29 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Lee's third season in pro basketball. KK Buducnost Voli Podgorica (6-4) is placed fifth in the Adriatic League. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. It's Lee's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 11.8ppg, 4.7rpg, 2FGP: 58.8%(47-80) and FT: 63.2% in the 10 games he played so far. Lee is a naturalized American. He is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team. Strangely Lee has never played in Finland.

Sasu Salin
Sasu Salin
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Sasu Salin (192-91, currently plays in Adriatic League), who plays in Slovenia. He could not help Un.Olimpija (4-6) to beat Krka (5-5). Salin recorded 8 points and had 3 steals. Un.Olimpija was edged 79-76 on the road by the higher-ranked Krka (#8). Salin is ranked first on the list of the most steals in the league. This season he averages: 6.7ppg, 3.2rpg, 2.1spg, 2FGP: 41.2%, 3FGP: 30.8% and FT: 83.3%. Salin is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team.

Petteri Koponen
Petteri Koponen
   #3. The Finnish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Petteri Koponen (194-88, currently plays in Euroleague). He was not able to help Khimky (4-3) in their game against Real Madrid (5-2) in the Euroleague. Koponen recorded 5 points in 8 minutes. The third-placed Khimky was crushed 104-81 in Madrid by the leading Real in the group A of Euroleague. They ended the series of three consecutive victories. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Koponen's overall stats are: 5.4ppg, 1.3apg, 3FGP: 33.3% in the seven games. He is also a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Ville Kaunisto
Ville Kaunisto
   #4. 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 (6-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Kaunisto's very good performance Blois was edged in an overtime 75-73 at home by the lower-ranked JA Vichy (#6). He was the top scorer with 20 points. Kaunisto also added 5 rebounds. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Kaunisto is currently seventh on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Kaunisto averages: 16.5ppg, 10.9rpg and 2.1apg. He is also Finnish national team player.

Roope Ahonen
Roope Ahonen
   #5. International guard Roope Ahonen (186-90, agency: FCM, currently plays in Sweden) contributed to a Solna Vikings' victory against the closely-ranked Sodertalje Kings (7-4) 86-80 in the Swedish Basketligan last Saturday. Ahonen recorded 10 points and added 4 assists in 22 minutes. Solna Vikings (7-6) is placed sixth in the Basketligan. This year Ahonen has relatively solid stats: 10.4ppg, 1.7rpg and 3.8apg in the 13 games. He plays currently for the Finnish national team.

Joonas Caven
Joonas Caven
   #6. Power forward Joonas Caven (211-93, currently plays in Spain) was the major contributor in a Prat Juventud's victory against the 12th-ranked La Palma (1-5) 87-79 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) on Saturday night. Caven recorded 17 points. CB Prat Juventud (3-4) is placed eighth in the LEB Silver. Caven's total stats this season are: 7.2ppg and 2.8rpg. He is U20 international player who is currently on the 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 (2-7) in their game against Banco di Sardegna Sassari (7-2) in the Italian SerieA. Huff scored 6 points in 20 minutes. The bottom-ranked Vanoli Cremona was edged 80-78 in Sassari by the second-ranked Banco di Sardegna. It was Vanoli Cremona's fourth consecutive loss in a row. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Huff's total stats are: 5.2ppg and 4.1rpg in the nine games. He is also Finnish national team player.

Teemu Rannikko
Teemu Rannikko
   #8. 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 couldn't help Un.Olimpija (4-6) in their game against Krka (5-5). He cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. Rannikko recorded only 1 points. Un.Olimpija was edged 79-76 in Novo Mesto by the higher-ranked Krka (#8). It's Rannikko's first season with the team. Rannikko is currently seventh on the league's list of best passers. He has averaged so far 5.0ppg, 1.4rpg, 3.5apg and 1.3spg. Rannikko plays currently for the Finnish national team.

Kilian Cato
Kilian Cato
   #9. U20 international forward Kilian Cato (201-92, currently plays college basketball in the States) helped Maine win their game against the Siena College 72-66 in the NCAA on Sunday night. He scored 8 points in 16 minutes. The University of Maine has conference record this season. Cato has averaged so far 5.0ppg, 1.4rpg, 3.5apg and 1.3spg in the 10 games. He is also in the roster of the Finnish U20 national team.
