Second best performed player last round was Minna Sten (189-F-87) of HoNsU. She is former international forward in her second season at HoNsU. In the last game Sten recorded impressive double-double of 17 points and 12 rebounds. Of course she lead HoNsU to another comfortable win 74-59 over the lower-ranked BC Nokia (#10, 3-18) being unquestionably team leader. HoNsU's 6th position in the standings has not changed.

Sten is well-known at HoNsU and she already established her position as one of the team's leaders.
Third place about best performers goes to swingman Natalie Day (182-G/F-90) of HyPo (#11). Day scored 25 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Day's great performance HyPo lost 75-81 to the higher-ranked FoA (#3, 14-7). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. HyPo can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 2-19 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Too bad for Day she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Day has a very solid season. In 11 games in Finland she scored 16.5ppg. She also has 9.2rpg and 1.1bpg.
