Kostov's 33-point game gives him Player of the Week award - Feb 18, 2013

Chavdar
Kostov
24-year old shooting guard Chavdar Kostov (195-SG-88, agency: Interperformances) put on an amazing game in the last round for second-ranked Levski Sofia and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 17.
He had the game-high 33 points adding four rebounds and three assists for Levski Sofia in his team's victory, helping them to beat Tundja Yambol (#5, 9-8) 78-67. Levski Sofia maintains the 2nd position in Bulgarian league. They are still close to the very top. Levski Sofia would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 14-3 record. In the team's last game Kostov had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He turned to be Levski Sofia's top player in his first season with the team. Chavdar Kostov averages this season 12.9ppg.

Second best performed player last round was Giorgos Galiotos (213-C-86, agency: Interperformances) of Cherno More. He is Greek center in his first season at Cherno More. In the last game Galiotos recorded impressive double-double of 12 points and 18 rebounds. Of course he lead Cherno More to another comfortable win outscoring U20 (#10, 0-17) 84-55. Cherno More's 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 7-9 record. Galiotos is a newcomer at Cherno More and despite he is not a team leader yet, every game he becomes more reliable player. Hopefully performances like the last one will happen more often.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Reginald Holmes (193-G-87) of Beroe (#7). Holmes got into 30-points club by scoring exactly 30 points in the last round. He went also for five rebounds . He was a key player of Beroe, leading his team to a 103-78 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Spartak Pleven (#9, 4-13). The chances of Beroe ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 10 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Holmes could help Beroe to bring them higher in the standings. Holmes has a great season in Bulgaria. After 17 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.8ppg (best scorer).

Other top performing players last week:
4. James Tyler (218-C-88) of Chernomorets - 20 points and 16 rebounds
5. Mitchell Carter (208-C) of Beroe - 15 points and 12 rebounds
6. Braxton Dupree (203-F-89) of Rilski Sportist - 12 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Branko Mirkovic (190-G-82) of Rilski Sportist - 21 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Will Walker (183-G) of Beroe - 17 points, 2 rebounds and 7 assists
9. Asen Velikov (185-PG-86) of Cherno More - 12 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Vladimir Panic (194-F-82) of Balkan - 21 points, 4 rebounds and 4 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)

We bring you last week's top performances from Bulgarians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level. This week's number one is an international point guard Dee Bost (188-89, agency: BeoBasket). He could not help Monaco (30-4) in their last game. Despite Bost's good performance the league leader Monaco was edged 72-69 at home by the much lower-ranked (#8) ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket.    [read more]

Defending champion Leones de Santo Domingo (LNB) tabbed 25-year old American forward Travis Daniels (202-98kg-92, college: Mississippi State). He moved there from Balkan in Bulgarian NBL league where he started the season. In 23 games he averaged 11.6ppg and 7.3rpg this season. Daniels helped them to make it to the Bulgarian Cup Semifinals.
