As most of you know, Jonas has been playing for Sweden this summer. There already is a fan post for this, but it's not on top of the list anymore and I just want to let you know that Jonas had a great game last night against Azerbaijan. The game was played in Azerbaijan, and according to one swedish news paper Jonas got standing ovations when he was subed out with 1 minute left of the game...from the opponents home crowd!
In the four qualifying games in the European Championships, he has
22 points, 11 rebounds against Belarus
19 points, 14 rebounds against Romania
24 points, 14 rebounds against Albania
35 points, 10 rebounds against Azerbaijan
Quote from FIBA Europes home page about yesterdays game: "However, the biggest clash in Division B arguably took place in Baku where Azerbaijan had their unbeaten record smashed in spectacular style by visiting Sweden who came out on top 101-73 after a blistering final quarter and another phenomenal performance by Jonas Jerebko. With the scores tied 41-41 at the half, Sweden edged themselves into a handy 7 point lead at the end of the third period and then exploded with 38 points during the last quarter to leave the hosts stunned. Jerebko claimed 35 points and 10 rebounds while Anton Saks added a valuable 20 points for the winning team."
