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.


Teemu Rannikko
Teemu Rannikko
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced international point guard Teemu Rannikko (189-80, currently plays in Adriatic League). He contributed to Un.Olimpija's victory against the closely-ranked Krka (9-14) 76-63 in the Adriatic League in Saturday night's game. Rannikko scored 6 points and added 4 assists in 16 minutes on the court. Union Olimpija Ljubljana (13-10) is placed sixth in the Adriatic League. There are only three games left until the end of the Adriatic League Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Rannikko averages: 7.1ppg, 1.1rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 68.0%(17-25), 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 86.2% in the 22 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Gerald Lee
Gerald Lee
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Gerald Lee (208-87, college: ODU, currently plays in Adriatic League), who plays in Montenegro. Lee could not help Buducnost (14-9) to beat Radnicki KG (15-8). He scored 7 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 3 assists. Buducnost was defeated 78-63 on the road by the higher-ranked Radnicki KG (#3). They ended the series of four consecutive victories. There are only three games left until the end of the Adriatic League Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Lee has relatively good stats this season: 10.7ppg, 4.5rpg, 2FGP: 59.9%(100-167). He is a naturalized American. Lee is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Finland.

Sasu Salin
Sasu Salin
   #3. The Finnish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Sasu Salin (192-91, currently plays in Adriatic League) is a teammate of previously mentioned Teemu Rannikko and both played together in the last Adriatic League game. Salin managed to help Union Olimpija Ljubljana in a victory against the closely-ranked Krka (9-14) 76-63. He scored only 4 points in 10 minutes. Salin is currently fifth on the league's list of most steals with 1.7spg. This year his other stats are: 7.0ppg, 3.4rpg, 2FGP: 41.9%, 3FGP: 33.7% and FT: 66.7% in the 22 games. Salin is also a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Roope Ahonen
Roope Ahonen
   #4. Guard Roope Ahonen (186-90, agency: FCM, currently plays in Sweden) was not able to help Solna Vikings (20-12) in their game against Boras Basket (21-11) in the Swedish Basketligan. He scored 6 points and added 4 passes. Solna Vikings was edged 91-89 in Boras by the higher-ranked Basket (#4). Ahonen's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. It's Ahonen's first season with the team. This year he has relatively solid stats: 11.1ppg, 1.7rpg and 4.3apg. Ahonen is also Finnish national team player.

Shawn Huff
Shawn Huff
   #5. International small forward Shawn Huff (198-84, college: Valparaiso, currently plays in Italy) was not able to secure a victory for Vanoli Cremona (8-13) in their game against Lottomatica Roma (14-7) in the Italian SerieA. He scored 5 points in 20 minutes. Vanoli Cremona lost 71-79 in Roma to the much higher-ranked (#4) Lottomatica. This year Huff's overall stats are: 4.1ppg and 3.4rpg in the 17 games. He plays currently for the Finnish national team.

Joonas Caven
Joonas Caven
   #6. Power forward Joonas Caven (211-93, currently plays in Spain) contributed to a Prat Juventud's victory against the sixth-ranked Aurteneche Maquinaria Euskadi (9-8) 73-66 in the Spanish LEB Silver (third division) on Saturday night. Caven recorded 8 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. CB Prat Juventud (12-6) is placed second in the LEB Silver. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Caven's total stats this season are: 7.8ppg and 2.6rpg. He is U20 international player who is currently on the Finnish National Team roster.

Lauri Toivonen
Lauri Toivonen
   #7.

Toivonen scored 6 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 24 minutes. The University of Texas-Pan American has 4-3 conference record this season. His team will play only one more game in the NCAA Regular Season. This year Toivonen's total stats are: 7.8ppg and 2.6rpg in the 17 games. He used to play for the Finnish university national team two years ago.
