Maris
Ziedins
Power forward Maris Ziedins (203-F/C-90) had a great game in the last round for Valmiera, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9.
The 22-year old player had a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds, while his team outclassed, the league's bottom-ranked team LSU-Baltai (#5, 0-5) with 27-point margin 83-56. Valmiera maintains the 3rd position in Baltic League . Valmiera is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 3-3 record. Ziedins has many years of experience at Valmiera, through which he has constantly improved. Maris Ziedins averages this season 6.3ppg and 6.0rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old Vytenis Jasikevicius (187-PG-85) of Nevezis. Jasikevicius had a very good evening with a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as Nevezis was edged by league's leader Rudupis (#1, 8-0) 72-68. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Nevezis still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 3-4 record. Jasikevicius is well-known at Nevezis and is a proven leader in his second season with the team.

Third on the list of top players last round was Nigerian forward Ike Okoye (206-F) of Tln Kalev (#6). Okoye scored 18 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Okoye's great performance Tln Kalev lost 55-78 to the higher-ranked Sakalai (#3, 3-3). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Tln Kalev can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-6 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Okoye he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Okoye has individually a great season in Baltic League. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.4ppg (2nd best) and rebounds with 10.3rpg (#1 in league).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Reimo Tamm (185-PG-84) of Tarvas - 20 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Gediminas Orelikas (200-G/F-90) of Rudupis - 20 points and 6 rebounds
6. Raitis Grafs (208-C-81) of Valga - 20 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Tanel Kurbas (197-G-88) of TU/Rock - 18 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Veljo Vares (200-F/G-81) of Valga - 12 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Janis Berzins (202-F-93) of Valmiera - 22 points and 5 rebounds
10. Mindaugas Kupsas (215-C-91) of Lietkabelis - 18 points and 3 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)
