Rain Raadik
Rain Raadik (208-C-89) put on an amazing game in the last round for Parnu and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 7.
The 23-year old center had a double-double of 24 points and fourteen rebounds, while his team beat LSU-Baltai (#5, 0-4), the league's bottom-ranked team 68-55. Parnu maintains the 4th position in Baltic League . Parnu is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 1-2 record. Raadik turned to be Parnu's top player in his first season with the team. Rain Raadik averages just after three games 18.3ppg and 15.0rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 28-year old point guard Reimo Tamm (185-PG-84) of Tarvas. Tamm impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 21 points and 10 assists. Of course he lead Tarvas to another comfortable win 85-69 over Nevezis (2-3) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Tarvas to move up to 3rd position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 2-3 record. Tamm is a newcomer at Tarvas 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 17.6ppg (#3). His other stats are also decent: 7.8rpg and 5.0apg.

The third best performed player last round was Saulius Kuzminskas (210-C/F-82) of second-ranked Siauliai. Kuzminskas scored 16 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Siauliai, leading his team to a 106-63 easy win against Rapla (#6, 0-4). Siauliai is closer and closer to the top of the standings. They will still need more victories. But 4-1 record is not that bad... Kuzminskas has a very solid season. In 4 games in Baltic League he scored 6.5ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Frank Elegar (208-C-86) of Kalev/Cramo - 19 points and 12 rebounds
5. Ike Okoye (206-F) of Tln Kalev - 23 points and 9 rebounds
6. Olasumbo Atoyebi (203-C/F-88) of Naglis Palangos - 17 points and 13 rebounds
7. Gediminas Maceina (188-PG-84) of Pieno Zvaigzdes - 15 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Gary Wilkinson (205-F/C-82) of Kalev/Cramo - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Arturas Valeika (207-F-85) of Rudupis - 11 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Andrew Arnold (208-C-86) of TTU - 22 points and 7 rebounds

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
