Morgan
26-year old forward Jordan Morgan (203-F-91) put on an amazing game in the last round for Olimpija and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 2.
He had a double-double of 26 points and 12 rebounds, while his team lost the game against Cibona (1-1) 85-96. Olimpija moved-up to the 9th position in ABA League. Olimpija is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. But it was their 1st lost game this season out of 2 games. Morgan turned to be Olimpija's top player in his first season with the team. University of Michigan graduate has very impressive stats this year. Morgan is league's best scorer averaging so far 23.0ppg and leads league in rebounds with 11.5rpg. Morgan is in league's top in and averages solid 69.2% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Dylan Ennis (187-PG-91) of Mega Bemax. He is Canadian-Jamaican guard in his first season at Mega Bemax. In the last game Ennis recorded impressive 21 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists. Bad luck as Mega Bemax lost that game 80-90 to Crvena Zvezda (2-0). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Ennis is a newcomer at Mega Bemax and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.0ppg (#4). He also recorded 6.0 assists per game.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Patrick Miller (185-PG-92) of Partizan NIS (#12). Miller scored 20 points and passed four assists. Despite Miller's great performance Partizan NIS lost 81-83 to Mornar Bar (#7, 1-1). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Partizan NIS can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 2 games. Miller has a very solid season. In 2 games in ABA League he scored 16.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Nemanja Gordic (193-PG-88) of Buducnost - 25 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Will Cherry (185-PG-91) of Cedevita - 17 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists
6. Uros Lukovic (213-C-89) of Mornar Bar - 13 points and 7 rebounds
7. James Feldeine (193-SG-88) of Crvena Zvezda - 21 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Luka Zoric (211-C-84) of Cibona - 18 points and 5 rebounds
9. Taylor Rochestie (185-PG-85) of Crvena Zvezda - 26 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists
10. Nikola Rebic (188-PG-95) of Mega Bemax - 19 points, 5 rebounds and 6 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)
