Jordan
Semple
24-year old forward Jordan Semple (201-F-92) put on an amazing game in the last round for second-ranked Akademik PL and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 17.
He had a double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds, while his team beat Beroe (#4, 9-6) 89-77. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Akademik PL maintains the 2nd position in Bulgarian league. 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 11-4 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: 21.6ppg) and averages solid 1.7bpg and 68.1% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was D.J. Shelton (208-F-91) of Rilski. He is American forward in his first season at Rilski. In the last game Shelton recorded impressive double-double of 26 points and 12 rebounds. Of course Rilski cruised to a 75-66 relatively comfortable win over the higher-ranked Lukoil Acad. (#1, 13-3). Rilski's 5th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 8-7 record is not bad and everything may still change. Shelton is one of the most experienced players at Rilski and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 24.5ppg (#1). He also registered 10.3 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to Nikola Djuric (201-C/F-91) of Cherno More (#7). Djuric scored 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a key player of Cherno More, leading his team to a 78-69 win against slightly lower-ranked Yambol (#9, 3-12). The chances of Cherno More not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 10 games, recording just five victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Djuric could try to bring Cherno More's a little bit higher in the standings. Djuric has a very solid season. In 15 games in Bulgaria he scored 9.3ppg. He also has 4.6rpg and FGP: 67.8%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Milovan Savic (205-C-87) of Spartak Pleven - 18 points and 13 rebounds
5. Dimitar Dimitrov (203-PF-93) of Akademik PL - 20 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Steve Zack (211-C-92) of Lukoil Acad. - 13 points and 17 rebounds
7. Anthony Beane (188-G-94) of Lukoil Acad. - 20 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Milen Dudev (178-PG-94) of Spartak Pleven - 8 points, 4 rebounds and 10 assists
9. Amin Hott (192-G-92) of Balkan - 18 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Brandis Raley-Ross (191-G-87) of Beroe - 21 points, 3 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)
