This year league awards went mostly to the top Polish team (Prokom) players.
The POY voting was between last season POY David Logan and this season Euroleague Forward of the Year Qyntel Woods. We decided to bend it slightly towards Logan, but Woods was just behind. Strangely Logan received also last year Import Player of the Year award, while this year he got also ...Domestic Player of the Year. But he received Polish citizenship last year (joined also Polish National Team), which changed his status to domestic player.
This was for the very first time, that we did not have really a single dominant center in the league. We could find way more guards and forwards, whose we should add to the 1st team, but not centers.
The second ranked Polish team Anwil show the best team-oriented game this year. It practically means that they did not have 1-2 top stars and each player contributed to Anwil's great performance this year. That's why lack of Anwil's players names does not diminish the overall quality of their players.
The biggest revelation of the season is definitely Trefl Sopot. Coach Muizinieks made great job 'squeezing' everything from his players. Despite having no real stars (not mentioning Kuzminskas and Kinnard) their solid game allowed them to end regular season in top four.
Polish players (except mentioned Logan) played really secondary role in their teams as that part was taken by imports and Bosmans. Here we did not have too much choice. Even in Polish National Team, all top players play outside of Poland.

Prokom rally to PLK triumph - May 29, 2010

Anwil - Prokom 79:80
Prokom once again proved their superiority in the Polish basketball. They defended the PLK sweeping the Final series against Anwil. Prokom celebrated the second straight road win against Anwil and sealed the triumphant season in the country.
Anwil had their backs against the wall and thus began the game aggressively. The hosts fired 25 points in the opening frame to pile up a 6-point advantage. Anwil stayed concentrated in the second period. They played successfully in defense and it allowed Anwil to deepen their lead. The hosts arrived at halftime enjoying a 12-point advantage 44:32. But the third quarter turned things upside down. Prokom finally shook off the sloppiness and showed their ambitions. Led by Qyntel Woods (203-F/G-81, college: N.Mississippi JC) Prokom stunned the home side. Prokom exploded with 28 points in the quarter and cut the margin to just two points with ten minutes to go. Prokom gradually erased the deficit and stepped in front late in regulation. The final seconds turned into a real drama. Daniel Ewing gave Prokom a narrow 80:79 advantage. But Anwil had time to set up the rescue attempt. Krzysztof Szubarga (182-G-84, agency: AB Agency) tried to win the game for Anwil but got his shot blocked by Lapela thus giving away the victory to Prokom.
Qyntel Woods notched 31 points and 11 rebounds for Prokom. David Logan (184-G-82, college: Indianapolis) added 16 points, while Adam Lapeta (217-C-87, agency: Interperformances) netted 13 points for the winners. Nikola Jovanovic (204-C-81, agency: BeoExcell) responded with 20 points and 12 rebounds for Anwil. Rashard Sullivan (203-F/C-84, agency: Hart Sports Mngm, college: S.Indiana) accounted for 16 points in the loss.

Anwil: Nikola Jovanovic 20+12 boards, Rashard Sullivan 16
Prokom: Qyntel Woods 31+11 boards, David Logan 16, Adam Lapeta 13


Michael Wright leads South in PLK All-Star Game - Mar 21, 2010

South - North 106:92
Team South claimed a comfortable win over North in the PLK All-Star Game. Michael Wright (203-F-80, agency: Priority Sports, college: Arizona) was named MVP. He tallied impressive 30 points and 15 rebounds in the victory. Andrzej Pluta (182-G-74, agency: Court Side) won Three-Point Shootout Contest. He gained 20 points in the final round to overcome Tomasz Celej and Michal Woloszyn. Eddie Miller (191-G-85, agency: ZAG Advocates, college: Fresno St.) in the meantime became the best dunker as he defeated Quinton Day in the Slam-Dunk Contest final round.
The game itself was highly entertaining as usual. South led by one at the first break 28:27. They stepped on the gas in the second frame and cleared off to a 9-point halftime lead. But North led by Iwo Kitzinger (188-G-85, agency: Interperformances) and Lawrence Kinnard (202-F-86, college: UAB) won the third frame and got within 7 points with ten minutes to go. But the final frame belonged to the South Team. They limited their opponents to 17 points and pulled away a spectacular win.
Eddie Miller nailed 15 points for the winners. Jeremy Chappell (191-G-87, agency: Hart Sports Mngm, college: Robert Morris) finished with 12 points, while Andrzej Pluta nailed 11 for the winning side. Lawrence Kinnard and Iwo Kitzinger responded with 14 points each for North. Tomasz Kesicki (212-C-86) chipped in 13 points in the loss.

South: Michael Wright 30+15 boards, Eddie Miller 15, Jeremy Chappell 12, Andrzej Pluta 11
North: Lawrence Kinnard 14, Iwo Kitzinger 14, Tomasz Kesicki 13
  

AZS Koszalin conquer Polish Cup - Feb 21, 2010 

AZS Koszalin - Turow 80:75
AZS Koszalin claimed 2010 Polish Cup title. They scalped Polonia, Prokom and finally Turow en route to the top of the pedestal. Dante Dante Swanson (178-G-81, college: Tulsa) came up with 20 points, 6 boards and 6 assists to lead AZS Koszalin in todays title decider in Warsaw.
AZS Koszalin entered the game full of ambition after they defeated Prokom in the semis. They jumped to an early lead and dominated in the opening frame. The scoreboard read 22:19 for AZS Koszalin at the first break. The second frame brought little relief for Turow. They still lagged behind and trailed by as many as 8 points at halftime 37:45. The third frame proved the difference in this one. AZS Koszalin shifted to even higher gear. They outscored their opponents 23:13 to enjoy a comfortable 18-point lead before the fourth term. Turow fought bravely and denied the major part of the deficit but could not come up with a miracle and surrendered at the end. George Reese (201-F-77, college: Ohio St.) provided 17 points for the winners. Vladimir Tica (208-C/F-81, agency: Beo Basket) added 15 points for AZS Koszalin. Justin Gray (188-G-84, college: Wake Forest) responded with 22 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds for Turow. Michael Wright (203-F-80, agency: Priority Sports, college: Arizona) delivered 15 points in the loss.

AZS Koszalin: Dante Swanson 20, George Reese 17, Vladimir Tica 15
