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.

   #4. Power forward Emir Sulejmanovic (204-95, currently plays in Adriatic League) is a teammate of previously mentioned Teemu Rannikko and both played together in the last Adriatic League game. Sulejmanovic contributed to Un.Olimpija's victory against one of league's weakest teams KK Zadar (6-11) 88-81. He scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. It was his first game for Un.Olimpija this season. Sulejmanovic has a dual citizenship: Bosnia and Herzegovina and Finnish.

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. Kaunisto belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #3) and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Kaunisto averages: 17.9ppg, 11.6rpg and 1.9apg in the 14 games. He is also Finnish national team player.

   #9. U20 international power forward Joonas Caven (211-93, currently plays in Spain) was not able to help Prat Juventud (7-5) in their game against Oviedo CB (8-3) in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division).

Murphy is U20 international player who is currently on the Finnish National Team roster. Apparently he has never played in Finland.

   #11. Former University international forward Lauri Toivonen (201-91, currently studies in the States) contributed to an easy victory against the Fisher College crushing them 95-49 in the NCAA last Saturday.

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.
