Beidler second in weekly Finnish Award

Kelly Beidler's 24 point 8 rebound performance in Karhu's overtime win versus Nilan Bisons earned him second spot in the Eurobasket.com Korisliiga Player of the Week award.

Damon Williams won the weekly award with a 24 point, 7 rebound, 6 assist performance.

Beidler continues to be a key cog in Karhu's performance. The win over Nilan moved them into second place in the league standings. Beidler continues to have an impressive debut season in Finland after playing his rookie season in Iceland. The former Mount forward is among the league leaders in points 19.6 ppg (4th), rebounds 9.4 rpg (3rd), steals 2.4 spg (4th) and blocks 2.1 bpg (2nd).

Meanwhile, Shawn Atupem is having a tremendous rookie season in Ireland. Atupem is averaging 24.6 points per game which is good enough for 2nd in the Irish Super League. The forward also grabs 9.9 rebounds per outing, 7th overall.
