Mateusz PONITKA - EuroBasket 2013 Profile
Team 2012-13: Asseco Prokom Gdynia (Poland-PLK)
Career: Kasprowiczanka Ostrow Wielkopolski (Poland, up to 2009); AZS Politechnika Warszawska (Poland-2nd div., 2009-11); AZS Politechnika Warszawska (Poland-PLK, 2011-12); Asseco Prokom Gdynia (Poland-PLK, 2011-13)

The rising star of Polish basketball is currently at a crossroads. His playing style - high flying, non-stop running, in-your-face scoring and hard-nosed defence - gave Ponitka a lot of exposure during the 2010 U17 World Championship in Hamburg, where Poland took silver, but so far he has not been as successful among adults. Of course, eight-plus points-per-game in both the Euroleague and Polish League for Asseco Prokom Gdynia is not a given for a 19-year-old playing on the wing, but some predicted that in 2013 Ponitka would be considered a top 10 pick in the NBA draft. It has not happened so far, but he has got a good chance to become one of the most important figures in the national team, after a promising campaign as an energiser from the bench in the Qualification Round.
