Swingman Ivica Dimcevski (194-G/F-89, agency: Interperformances) had a very impressive game in the last round for second-ranked Kumanovo, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 5.
The 23-year old player was the main contributor (29 points, seven rebounds) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Levski Sofia (#3, 2-1) 87-80. Kumanovo is placed at 2nd position in Balkan League group A. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this season. Kumanovo will need more victories to improve their 3-1 record. In the team's last game Dimcevski had a remarkable four three-pointers out of 8 attempts. He turned to be Kumanovo's top player in his first season with the team. Ivica Dimcevski has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (2nd best: 20.5ppg), rebounds (9th best: 6.3rpg) and averages impressive 60.6% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 28-year old Aleksandar Radulovic (207-C-84) of Teodo Tivat. Radulovic had a very good evening with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course he lead Teodo Tivat to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked Kavala (#8, 2-2) 98-71. Teodo Tivat's 6th position in group B has not changed. A very good start of the season for his team, which won so far all 3 games without any defeat. Radulovic is a newcomer at Teodo Tivat, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 15.7ppg (#9). He also registered 10.7 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Teodo Tivat's star - American forward Manuel Johnson (201-F-83, agency: Court Side). Johnson scored 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds. He was another key player of Teodo Tivat, helping his team with a 98-71 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Kavala (#8, 2-2). Teodo Tivat started extremely well this year. They recorded 3 victories without losing a single game in group B. Johnson turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Johnson has a very solid season. In 3 games in Balkan League he scored 9.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Stefan Georgiev (206-C/F-78) of Levski Sofia - 20 points and 9 rebounds
5. Uros Lukovic (212-C-89) of Kumanovo - 16 points and 13 rebounds
6. Branko Mirkovic (190-G-82) of Rilski Sportist - 16 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Igor Kunjic (199-F-87) of Teodo Tivat - 21 points and 2 rebounds
8. Jamar Smith (191-G-87) of Galil Gilboa - 16 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Sinisa Tepavcevic (201-F-84) of Teodo Tivat - 14 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Savo Djikanovic (211-C-75) of Teodo Tivat - 16 points and 3 rebounds

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)
