   #2. Second place goes to an international swingman Heta Korpivaara (186-84, also represented by Regeneracom Sports, college: Seton Hall, currently plays in Germany), who plays in the German DBBL. Korpivaara was not able to help Heli Girls (9-5) in their last game on Saturday. Despite her good performance Heli Girls was defeated 74-64 in Wolfenbuettel by the league outsider Wildcats (#12). Korpivaara was the second best scorer with 14 points. She also added 6 rebounds. It's Korpivaara's first season with the team. Korpivaara is ranked fifth on the list of the top scorers in the league. She has individually a very good season with high stats. Korpivaara averages: 17.4ppg, 5.2rpg, 2FGP: 52.1%, 3FGP: 18.2% and FT: 88.7%. She is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team.
