Samuel Haanpaa - EuroBasket 2013 Profile
Team 2012-13: Lapuan Korikobrat (FIN-Korisliiga)
Career: Valparaiso (USA-NCAA, 2006-08); Fos Ouest Provence (France-NM1, 2008-09); ToPo Helsinki (Finland-Korisliiga, 2009-10); Palencia (Spain-LEB1, 2010-11); Keravnos Nicosia (Cypros-Liga A, 2011); Joensuun Kataja (Finland-Korisliiga, 2011-12); Lapuan Korikobrat (Finland-Korisliiga, 2012-13)

A natural-born shooter if there ever was one, Haanpää took his talents to the United States at the age of 19 and signed his first professional contract after breaking some of Valparaiso's three-point records in 2007/08. In his first four professional seasons and national team years, Haanpää has showed signs of brilliance - such as a memorable five-of-five three-point shooting night on the road against Tony Parker's France in 2009 - but also suffered a great deal because of injuries. In 2012/13, Haanpää averaged 19 points and eight rebounds for Finnish League newcomers Lapuan Korikobrat and earned the Finnish MVP award, clearly showing that he is willing and able to come back and display his skills at the top level.
