Augustas Peciukevicius claims Baltic League weekly honour - Dec 1, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Talented Lithuanian Augustas Peciukevicius (192-G-91) had a very impressive game in the last round for Parnu and that's him to receive a Player of the Week award for round 10.
The 21-year old guard had the game-high 26 points adding seven rebounds and seven assists for Parnu in his team's victory, helping them to edge out Valmiera (#3, 3-4) 94-91. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. 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 2-3 record. Peciukevicius turned to be Parnu's top player in his first season with the team. Augustas Peciukevicius averages this season 17.0ppg and 5.2apg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was another Parnu's star - 23-year old center Rain Raadik (208-C-89). Raadik impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 22 points and 13 rebounds. It was enough for Parnu to edge slightly higher-ranked Valmiera (#3, 3-4) by 3 points 94-91. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Parnu consolidated its place in top 4 of the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 2-3 record. Raadik is a newcomer at Parnu 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 18.2ppg (#3). He also registered 14.0 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was Janis Berzins (202-F-93, agency: Players Group) of Valmiera (#3). Berzins showcased his all-around game by recording 10 points, fourteen rebounds (!!!) and four assists in the last round. Despite Berzins' great performance Valmiera lost 91-94 to #4 ranked Parnu. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The chances of Valmiera ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 4 games, recording just three victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Berzins could help Valmiera to bring them higher in the standings. Berzins has a great season in Baltic League. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.7rpg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ivan Nelyubov (207-C-88) of TU/Rock - 22 points and 6 rebounds
5. Karolis Petrukonis (212-C-87) of Juventus - 16 points and 6 rebounds
6. Darrick Leonard (190-G-84) of Juventus - 11 points and 10 rebounds
7. Ingus Jakovics (185-PG-93) of Liepaja - 20 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Edvinas Jezukevicius (207-C-90) of Sakalai - 19 points and 5 rebounds
9. Mindaugas Girdziunas (188-G-89) of Nevezis - 17 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Osvaldas Matulionis (200-F-91) of Parnu - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists

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)

Davis Rozitis claims Baltic League weekly honour - 2 days ago

Davis Rozitis (213-C-90) put on an amazing game in the last round for Liepaja/Triobet and that's him to receive a Player of the Week award for round 2. The 26-year old center had the game-high 20 points adding seven rebounds and six assists for Liepaja/Triobet in his team's victory, helping them to beat Jurmala (#6, 0-1) 81-76. Liepaja/Triobet is placed at 3rd position in Baltic League. In the team's last game Rozitis had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range. He turned to...   [read more]

Round 2: Rapla beat Parnu - 3 days ago

There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in Baltic League. Rapla defeated Parnu at home 85-67. The game was mostly controlled by Rapla. Parnu managed to win fourth quarter 20-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was forward Indrek Kajupank (200-88) who scored 18 points and 9 rebounds. Slovenia point guard Domen Bratoz (189-93, agency: Two Points) chipped in 18 points.

Justin Baker
Tarvas tab Justin Baker, ex Logan T. - 6 days ago

BC Rakvere Tarvas (Alexela KML) inked 27-year old American forward Justin Baker (203-109kg-89, college: Utah Valley). He played in the summer at Logan Thunder in Australia QBL. Baker managed to play in three leagues in three countries last year (!!!). In 19 QBL games he averaged impressive 15.6ppg, 7.8rpg and 2.9apg. He helped them to make it to the semifinals. The most of last season Baker spent at Eco Orebro in Swedish Basketligan where in 18 games he had very remarkable stats: 16.8ppg,...   [read more]
