Petteri Koponen selected the top Finn playing abroad in last week's games - Feb 13, 2013


POSTED BY:

We bring you last week's top performances from Finns who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Petteri Koponen
Petteri Koponen
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Petteri Koponen (194-88, currently plays in Russia), who plays in the Russian PBL. He could not help Khimky (8-3) to beat Unics Kazan (4-7). Koponen scored 6 points and added 3 assists in 21 minutes on the court. Khimky lost 70-76 on the road to the lower-ranked (#7) Unics Kazan. It was Khimky's first loss after nine consecutive victories. This year Koponen averages: 5.8ppg, 1.7rpg, 2.5apg, 2FGP: 43.8%, 3FGP: 42.9% and FT: 75.0% in the six games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Roope Ahonen
Roope Ahonen
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Roope Ahonen (186-90, agency: FCM, currently plays in Sweden). Ahonen led Solna Vikings to a victory against the closely-ranked Sodertalje Kings (17-7) 78-70 in the Swedish Basketligan last Tuesday. He scored 16 points and added 3 passes. Solna Vikings (17-10) is placed sixth in the Basketligan. It's Ahonen's first season with the team. Ahonen has relatively good stats this year: 11.5ppg, 1.7rpg, 4.3apg, 2FGP: 46.8%, 3FGP: 38.4% and FT: 93.1%(81-87). He is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team.

Gerald Lee
Gerald Lee
   #3. The Finnish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Gerald Lee (208-87, college: ODU, currently plays in Eurocup). Lee was not able to help Buducnost (2-3) in their game against Triumph Lyubertsy (2-3) in the Eurocup. He scored only 4 points in 22 minutes. The third-placed Buducnost lost 66-76 in Lubertsy to the lower-ranked (#4) Triumph Lyubertsy in the group I of Eurocup. Lee's team will play only one more game in the Eurocup Top 16. And that game will be critical. This year Lee's overall stats are: 9.5ppg, 3.6rpg, 2FGP: 54.8% and FT: 66.7% in the 11 games. He is a naturalized American. Lee is also a member of the Finnish senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Finland.

Alex Murphy
Alex Murphy
   #4. Forward Alex Murphy (203-93, currently plays college basketball in the States) managed to help Duke University to win against the North Carolina State University (5-5) 98-85 in the NCAA in Thursday night's game. Murphy scored only 4 points. The Duke University has a very good 8-2 conference record this season. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. Murphy's total stats this season are: 9.5ppg and 3.6rpg. He is a naturalized American. Murphy is also Finnish U20 national team player. Apparently he has never played in Finland.

Joonas Caven
Joonas Caven
   #5. U20 international power forward Joonas Caven (211-93, currently plays in Spain) contributed to a Prat Juventud's victory against the league leader CB Guadalajara (10-4) 75-69 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) last Saturday. Caven recorded 8 points in 16 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. CB Prat Juventud (9-6) is placed third in the LEB Silver. This year Caven's total stats are: 7.6ppg and 2.4rpg in the 14 games. He plays currently for the Finnish U20 national team.

Lauri Toivonen
Lauri Toivonen
   #6. Forward Lauri Toivonen (201-91, currently studies in the States) was not able to secure a victory for the UTPA (3-2) in their game against the University of New Orleans (0-0) in the NCAA. Toivonen recorded only 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The UTPA was edged in an overtime 75-73 in New Orleans, LA by the University of New Orleans. Toivonen has averaged so far 7.6ppg and 2.4rpg. He is a former university international player as he played for the Finnish team two years ago.
