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 led his Russian team Khimky to a victory over the tenth-ranked PGE Turow (2-9) 91-72 in the VTB United League in Monday night's game. Koponen was MVP of the game. He scored 20 points and added 3 assists in 23 minutes on the court. BC Khimky Moscow Region (8-3) is placed third in group A. This year Koponen averages: 7.7ppg, 1.3rpg, 2.1apg, 2FGP: 51.9%, 3FGP: 54.5%(12-22) in the nine games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Despite Kaunisto's good performance Blois was edged 76-73 at home by the leading Orchesien BC. He had a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting 12 rebounds in 33 minutes.

He used to play for the Finnish university national team two years ago.

One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Finnish passport:

   #1. Roberto Alexander Mantovani (200-F-94, currently plays in Cyprus), who plays in the Cypriot Division A could not help AEL (5-8) to beat Etha (10-4). Mantovani cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points. AEL was defeated 86-71 on the road by the second-ranked Etha. Mantovani's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Mantovani's first season with the team. This year he averages just 1.2ppg. Mantovani has a dual citizenship: Finnish and Cypriot.
