Jordan Semple claims Bulgarian NBL weekly honour - Jan 30, 2017

Jordan
Semple
French-American Jordan Semple (201-F-92) had an amazing evening in the last round for league's second-best Akademik PL and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 16.
The 24-year old forward had a double-double of 17 points and twelve rebounds, while his team edged out Spartak Pleven (#6, 6-8) 90-88. Akademik PL is placed at 2nd position in Bulgarian NBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Akademik PL will need more victories to improve their 10-4 record. In the team's last game Semple had a remarkable 62.5% from 2-point range. He turned to be Akademik PL's top player in his first season with the team. Cal State - Chico graduate has very impressive stats this year. Semple is in league's top in points (2nd best: 21.8ppg) and averages solid 1.7bpg and 68.3% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old American forward Aaron Jones (206-F-93, agency: Two Points) of Beroe. Jones impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 20 points and 16 rebounds. Bad luck as Beroe lost that game 80-87 to the higher-ranked Lukoil Acad. (#1, 13-2). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Beroe still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 9-5 record is not bad at all. Jones 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 former international forward Veselin Veselinov (202-F-83) of Levski (#9). Veselinov showcased his all-around game by recording 17 points, nine rebounds and six assists in the last round. He was a key player of Levski, leading his team to a 79-70 win against slightly higher-ranked Cherno More (#7, 4-10). Levski can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 3-12 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Too bad for Veselinov he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Veselinov has individually a great season in Bulgaria. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.7rpg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Filip Videnov (196-SF-80) of Lukoil Acad. - 25 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Dimitar Marincheshki (200-F/C-90) of Spartak Pleven - 18 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Shakir Smith (185-G-92) of Akademik PL - 23 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Steve Zack (211-C-92) of Lukoil Acad. - 12 points and 15 rebounds
8. Oscar Bellfield (187-PG-90) of Akademik PL - 19 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists
9. Martin Marinov (191-SG-85) of Spartak Pleven - 23 points and 6 rebounds
10. Deyan Karamfilov (180-PG-94) of Cherno More - 21 points, 3 rebounds and 7 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)
