Nikolay Varbanov claims Bulgarian NBL weekly honour - Mar 20, 2017

Nikolay
Varbanov
Experienced Former international Center Nikolay Varbanov (209-C-85, agency: Interperformances) put on an amazing game in the last round for Yambol and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 22.
The 31-year old center had a double-double of 27 points and eleven rebounds, while his team beat Rilski (#4, 12-8) 90-76. Yambol is placed at 7th position in Bulgarian NBL. The season is in a full swing, so it's only a dream for the team to make it into top half of the standings. For contrary they may face relegation if the situation turns from bad to worse. Yambol have already lost 14 games and recorded just five victories. Varbanov turned to be Yambol's top player in his first season with the team. Varbanov has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (6th best: 8.5rpg) and averages solid 1.2bpg and 63.3% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 29-year old Montenegrin center Milovan Savic (205-C-87) of Spartak Pleven. Savic impressed basketball fans with 27 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists. It was enough for Spartak Pleven to edge slightly higher-ranked Beroe (#3, 13-7) by 5 points 89-84. Spartak Pleven's 5th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 10-9 record is not bad and everything may still change. Savic is well-known by Spartak Pleven fans and he already established his position as one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Brandis Raley-Ross (191-G-87) of Beroe (#3). Raley-Ross showcased his all-around game by recording 22 points, six rebounds and four assists in the last round. Despite Raley-Ross' great performance Beroe lost 84-89 to slightly lower-ranked Spartak Pleven (#5, 10-9). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Beroe needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 13 victories and 7 lost games. Raley-Ross has a great season in Bulgaria. After 12 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 4.3apg (7th best). He also has FGP: 54.4% and 3PT: 40.5%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. D.J. Shelton (208-F-91) of Rilski - 22 points and 11 rebounds
5. Jordan Semple (201-F-92) of Akademik PL - 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Danny Gibson (177-PG-84) of Lukoil Acad. - 20 points, 3 rebounds and 9 assists
7. Martin Marinov (191-SG-85) of Spartak Pleven - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Konstantin Koev (196-F-91) of Spartak Pleven - 17 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Dimitar Dimitrov (203-PF-93) of Lukoil Acad. - 13 points and 7 rebounds
10. Tsvetoslav Ostrev (175-PG-86) of Yambol - 25 points, 2 rebounds and 3 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)
