Marcus Eriksson 78/81 in 5 minutes

The U18 National Team player from Sweden Marcus Eriksson was shooting 3pointers during 5 minutes when he was home in Uppsala during his Christmas Break from Manresa, Spain, where he plays. I met him and his friends earlier in the gym the same day and spoke some with him about his last couples of months in Manresa. Later Marcus got challenged to make as many 3-pointers he could in five minutes. The result was 78 out of 81 all recorded on video and uploaded on youtube with a total view of 124 287 views (1/2-2011) spread over the world and published on the Spanish League – ACB:s homepage and at the big sportnewspaper in Sweden – Sportbladet.

Another amazing video from this summer was recorded in London when we played a preparation tournament this summer with the U18 National Team. When we played against Croatia, Marcus knocked down 7 (!) 3-pointers in the first quarter – and the crowd was in trance – and total 9 out of 9 3-pointeers in the game.
