Petteri Koponen Watch: I have nothing else to add edition

H.T. checks in from Finland with updates on our man Petteri Koponen in Italy. Feel the international flavor...

Meanwhile, in Petteri Koponen's secret hideout in Italy...

After last week's ugly loss to Serie A leading Montepaschi Siena, Virtus Bologna is back on track, this time defeating league-sixth Premiata Montegranaro 79-67 (41-35) at home and improving to 9 wins in 14 games. Petteri Koponen was held scoreless in only 14 minutes of play, but Petteri managed to dish out four assists to go with one steal and one block. Keith Langford was Saturday night's MVP for Virtus with 18 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks while Earl Boykins had 12 points and five turnovers. Brandon Hunter had 21/11 and Ricky Minard 17/7 for Montegranaro.

Next Saturday, Bologna will play against league-fifth Benetton Treviso on the road. Treviso's notable players include American guards Gary Neal and Bobby Dixon. Bologna will also play the final game of FIBA EuroChallenge Cup regular season next Tuesday in Russia against CSK-VVS Samara. Bologna has won all its five games in the EuroChallenge Cup.
