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 2 (Top 16).
The 23-year old center had a double-double of 33 points and eleven rebounds, while his team lost overtime game against Lietkabelis (#3, 1-1) 93-98. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Parnu moved-up to the 4th position in the Baltic League . The team may have a chance to improve their current position in the standings in Top 16. They lost 1 games and had no victories. In the team's last game Raadik had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Parnu's top player in his first season with the team. Raadik has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 20.0ppg and leads league in rebounds with 11.9rpg. Raadik is in league's top in and averages solid 60.0% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was young forward Janis Berzins (202-F-93, agency: Players Group) of second-ranked Valmiera. Berzins impressed basketball fans with 28 points and 9 rebounds. It was enough for Valmiera to edge Siauliai (0-2) by 5 points 82-77. His team has extremely good start of the Top 16. They won both games so far. However the Top 16 is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Berzins is a newcomer at Valmiera 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 14.9ppg (#7). He also registered 8.0 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was Gediminas Orelikas (200-G/F-90) of top-ranked Rudupis. Orelikas scored 21 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Rudupis, leading his team to a 93-68 easy win against #3 ranked Jelgava in a game of the week. Rudupis has a very good start of the Top 16. But there was just one game played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Orelikas also has a very good start of the Top 16 with very strong stats. Orelikas has a great season in Baltic League. After 11 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.6ppg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Kaspars Vecvagars (193-PG-93) of Lietkabelis - 20 points and 7 assists

10. Paulius Ivanauskas (195-F-87) of Rudupis - 13 points, 6 rebounds and 2 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)
