Zeljko Sakic
Zeljko Sakic (204-F-88, agency: BeoBasket) put on an amazing game in the last round for Cibona and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 17.
The 28-year old forward had the game-high 26 points adding nine rebounds for Cibona in his team's victory, helping them to beat MZT Skopje (#14, 4-13) 87-79. Cibona maintains the 5th position in ABA League . They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Cibona will need more victories to improve their 11-6 record. In the team's last game Sakic had a remarkable 81.8% from 2-point range. He turned to be Cibona's top player in his first season with the team. Sakic has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (7th best: 15.2ppg) and averages solid 55.6% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old point guard Filip Covic (178-PG-89) of FMP. Covic impressed basketball fans with 36 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists. Of course FMP cruised to a 84-74 relatively comfortable win over the higher-ranked Igokea (#6, 9-8). This victory allowed FMP to move up to 9th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 6-11 record. Covic is one of the most experienced players at FMP and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Octavius Ellis (208-C-93) of Mornar Bar (#8). Ellis scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds. He was a key player of Mornar Bar, leading his team to a 93-70 easy win against slightly higher-ranked Un.Olimpija (#7, 7-10). The chances of Mornar Bar not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 11 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Ellis could try to bring Mornar Bar's a little bit higher in the standings. Ellis has a very solid season. In 17 games in ABA League he scored 9.9ppg. He also has 5.5rpg, 1.6bpg and FGP: 67.0%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jonah Bolden (208-F-96) of FMP - 25 points and 10 rebounds
5. Owen Klassen (208-C/F-91) of Buducnost - 17 points and 10 rebounds
6. Scottie Reynolds (188-PG-87) of Cibona - 19 points, 2 rebounds and 13 assists
7. Ryan Boatright (183-PG-92) of Cedevita - 27 points and 5 assists
8. Charlon Kloof (190-G-90) of MZT Skopje - 16 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists
9. Vukota Pavic (203-C-93) of Mornar Bar - 20 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Djordje Drenovac (201-G/F-92) of MZT Skopje - 27 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists

The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
