Zach Auguste
Greek-American Zach Auguste (208-C-93, agency: Pensack Sports) had an amazing evening in the last round for Usak and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 11.
The 23-year old center had a double-double of 31 points and fourteen rebounds, while his team crushed Rosa Radom (#7, 3-8) with 20-point margin 96-76. Usak is placed at 6th position in their group in Basketball Champions League group C. Usak is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 4-7 record. Auguste turned to be Usak's top player in his first season with the team. University of Notre Dame graduate has very impressive stats this year. Auguste is in league's top in rebounds (4th best: 8.5rpg) and averages solid 63.2% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 24-year old American forward Javon McCrea (201-F-92) of Maccabi Rishon. McCrea impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds. Of course he led Maccabi Rishon to another comfortable win 79-61 over slightly higher-ranked Umana VE (#3, 7-4) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Maccabi Rishon to move up to 5th position in group B. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-6 record. McCrea is a newcomer at Maccabi Rishon and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was Cuban Howard Sant-Roos (200-F-91) of CEZ Nymburk (#3). Sant-Roos showcased his all-around game by recording 27 points, six rebounds and four assists in the last round. He was a key player of CEZ Nymburk, leading his team to an 87-72 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Fraport SKY (#5, 4-7). CEZ Nymburk needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams in group A. Their record at this point is 8 victories and 3 lost games. Sant-Roos has a very solid season. In 10 games in Basketball Champions League he scored 14.4ppg. He also has 6.4rpg, 3.2apg and 2.8spg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. DaJuan Summers (203-F-88) of Pinar Karsiyaka - 23 points and 11 rebounds
5. Sean Denison (210-C-85) of Oradea - 18 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Vince Hunter (203-PF-94) of Avtodor - 22 points and 6 rebounds
7. Dominique Johnson (192-SG-87) of Openjobmetis V. - 22 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Jordan Theodore (182-PG-89) of Banvit BK - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 14 assists
9. Aleksandar Marelja (207-F/C-92) of Mega Leks - 17 points and 4 rebounds
10. Volodymyr Koniev (203-F-89) of Khimik - 19 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists

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)
