Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Finns who are currently playing abroad.


Tiina Sten
Tiina Sten
   #1. This week's number one is an international swingman Tiina Sten (189-85, agency: Regeneracom Sports, college: St.John's, currently plays in Germany). She contributed to a 1-point TSV 1880 Wasserburg's victory against the closely-ranked SV Halle Lions (11-7) 73-72 in the German DBBL in Sunday night's game. Sten scored 8 points and blocked 3 shots in 16 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. TSV 1880 Wasserburg (16-2) is placed first in the DBBL. It was her team's ninth consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Sten's first season with the team. This year she averages: 7.7ppg, 3.1rpg, 2FGP: 53.4%, 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 76.0% in the 17 games she played so far. Sten is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Taru Tuukkanen
Taru Tuukkanen
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced international center Taru Tuukkanen (190-77, also represented by Regeneracom Sports, college: Xavier, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish LFB. She could not help Caja Rural (6-11) to beat Jopisa Burgos (7-9). Tuukkanen scored 8 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Caja Rural was badly defeated 71-54 on the road by the higher-ranked Jopisa Burgos (#6). It was Caja Rural's seventh consecutive loss in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Tuukkanen has relatively good stats this season: 13.0ppg, 6.5rpg, 2FGP: 44.1%, 3FGP: 14.3% and FT: 75.9%. She is in the roster of the Finnish senior national team.

Heta Korpivaara
Heta Korpivaara
   #3. The Finnish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international swingman Heta Korpivaara (186-84, another player 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 (10-8) in their last game. Despite her good performance Heli Girls lost 74-79 in Herne to the lower-ranked (#10) r TC. Korpivaara scored 10 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 29 minutes. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Korpivaara is currently ninth on the list of top scorers with 16.4ppg. This year her other stats are: 5.2rpg, 2FGP: 50.2%, 3FGP: 15.4% and FT: 81.0% in the 18 games. Korpivaara is also a member of the Finnish senior national team.

Dionne Pounds
Dionne Pounds
   #4. Forward Dionne Pounds (174-84, another player represented by Regeneracom Sports, college: Lamar, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Taru Tuukkanen and both played together in the last Spanish LFB game. Pounds was not able to secure a victory for Caja Rural (6-11) in their game against Jopisa Burgos (7-9). She scored 5 points. Caja Rural was badly defeated 71-54 in Burgos by the higher-ranked Jopisa (#6). Pounds' overall stats this season are: 9.5ppg and 2.4rpg. She is also Finnish national team player.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Finnish passport:

   #1. Saara Lehtoranta (170-F-90, currently plays in Germany), who plays in the German 2.Bundesliga (12th division) could not help TG Neuss (9-9) to beat ChemCats Chemnitz (18-0). Lehtoranta did not have that impressive stats last Sunday. She scored only 2 points in 15 minutes. The sixth-placed TG Neuss was crushed 89-58 on the road by the leading ChemCats Chemnitz in the North group. It was TG Neuss' first loss after four consecutive victories. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Lehtoranta's overall stats are: 4.1ppg and 2.1rpg in the 16 games she played so far.
