Darryl Watkins claims Bulgarian NBL weekly honour - Nov 26, 2012


POSTED BY:

American Darryl Watkins (211-C-84) had an amazing evening in the last round for league's leader Lukoil Academik and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 6.
The 28-year old center had the game-high 21 points adding eight rebounds and three assists for Lukoil Academik in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Chernomorets (#6, 3-3) with 60-point margin 121-61. It allowed Lukoil Academik to consolidate first place in the Bulgarian NBL. They maintain perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Lukoil Academik already had a very good start winning all 6 without losing a single one. Watkins turned to be Lukoil Academik's top player in his first season with the team. Darryl Watkins averages this season 13.5ppg and 6.2rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was -year old American guard Will Walker (183-G) of Beroe. Walker impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 24 points and 10 assists. Bad luck as Beroe lost that game 79-86 to slightly higher-ranked Balkan (#7, 3-4). This loss caused Beroe to drop to 8th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 2-3 record. Walker is a newcomer at Beroe 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 another Lukoil Academik's star - international Pavel Marinov (199-SF-88, agency: Interperformances). Marinov scored 21 points. He was another key player of Lukoil Academik, helping his team with a 121-61 easy win against the lower-ranked Chernomorets (#6, 3-3). Lukoil Academik started extremely well this year. They recorded 6 victories without losing a single game. Marinov turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Marinov has a great season in Bulgaria. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 8.5ppg (8th best) and assists with 0.5apg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Dimitar Marintchechki (201-F/C-90) of Spartak Pleven - 22 points and 11 rebounds
5. Atila Santos (208-C-83) of Balkan - 19 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Devin Green (201-G/F-82) of Lukoil Academik - 16 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Hristo Zahariev (197-SG-90) of Rilski Sportist - 24 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Asen Velikov (185-PG-86) of Cherno More - 14 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists
9. Brian Ormon (201-F-84) of Tundja Yambol - 14 points and 11 rebounds
10. Bogdan Boev (196-SG-82) of Chernomorets - 16 points, 4 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)
