Markovic
Experienced Serbian Milos Markovic (201-G/F-84, agency: 011 Sports) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's second-best Levice and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 7.
The 31-year old swingman had the game-high 19 points adding nine rebounds and three assists for Levice in his team's victory, helping them to beat Arkadia (#4, 0-4), the league's bottom-ranked team 76-68. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Levice is placed at 2nd position in Alpe-Adria-Cup. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost two games earlier this season. Levice will need more victories to improve their 3-2 record. In the team's last game Markovic had a remarkable 87.5% from 2-point range. He turned to be Levice's top player in his first season with the team. Milos Markovic averages just after three games 12.3ppg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was young Lithuanian forward Donatas Tarolis (202-F-94, agency: Interperformances) of Arkadia. Tarolis impressed basketball fans with 25 points and 7 rebounds. Bad luck as Arkadia lost that game 68-76 to slightly higher-ranked Levice (#2, 3-2). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Arkadia still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. 4 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Tarolis is a newcomer at Arkadia and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.3ppg (#1). He also registered 5.0 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was another Arkadia's star - Lithuanian Donatas Tarolis (202-F-94, agency: Interperformances). Tarolis scored 26 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Despite Tarolis' great performance Arkadia lost 88-91 to #1 ranked Kvarner 2010. But his team cannot count on just these two top stars as they also need help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Arkadia can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 4 games. Too bad for Tarolis he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Tarolis has individually a great season in Alpe-Adria-Cup. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.3ppg (best scorer).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Florian Trmal (199-F-89) of Arkadia - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Sime Spralja (205-C/F-83) of Kvarner 2010 - 17 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Jeremy Granger (185-PG-90) of Levice - 15 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
7. Benedikt Guettl (190-G-94) of Arkadia - 14 points, 2 rebounds and 7 assists
8. George Valentine (203-F-88) of Levice - 10 points and 6 rebounds
9. Nemanja Kovacevic (194-G-85) of Levice - 14 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Paolo Marinelli (191-G-95) of Kvarner 2010 - 17 points and 4 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)
