Milovan Savic claims Bulgarian NBL weekly honour - Apr 10, 2017

Milovan
Savic
Montenegrin-Serbian Milovan Savic (205-C-87) had a very impressive game in the last round for Spartak Pleven and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 25.
The 29-year old center had a double-double of 18 points and fourteen rebounds, while his team was edged out by Akademik PL (#2, 16-6) 97-96. Spartak Pleven maintains the 6th position in Bulgarian NBL. Spartak Pleven is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. But it was their 12th lost game this season out of 22 games. It's Savic's second year at Spartak Pleven and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Savic has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (8th best: 16.3ppg), rebounds (6th best: 8.6rpg) and averages solid 73.0% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old Montenegrin center Mihailo Sekulovic (206-C-91) of Balkan. Sekulovic impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 22 points and 15 rebounds. Of course Balkan cruised to a 78-69 relatively comfortable win over the lower-ranked Yambol (#8, 6-16). Balkan's 5th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 12-10 record is not bad and everything may still change. Sekulovic is a newcomer at Balkan and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.7ppg (#7). He also registered 8.9 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was another Spartak Pleven's star - Dimitar Marincheshki (200-F/C-90). Marincheshki scored 24 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Marincheshki's great performance Spartak Pleven lost 96-97 to the higher-ranked Akademik PL (#2, 16-6). But his team cannot count on just these two top stars as they also need help of the other teammates. The chances of Spartak Pleven ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 12 games, recording just ten victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Marincheshki could help Spartak Pleven to bring them higher in the standings. Marincheshki has a great season in Bulgaria. After 22 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.1ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 9.5rpg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Shakir Smith (185-G-92) of Akademik PL - 30 points and 4 assists
5. Oscar Bellfield (187-PG-90) of Akademik PL - 17 points, 4 rebounds and 12 assists
6. Nikola Djuric (201-C/F-91) of Cherno More - 19 points and 7 rebounds
7. Jordan Semple (201-F-92) of Akademik PL - 20 points and 9 rebounds
8. Evgeni Hadjirusev (193-G-95) of Levski - 16 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists
9. Stanimir Marinov (192-G-91) of Balkan - 20 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists
10. Danny Gibson (177-PG-84) of Lukoil Acad. - 16 points, 8 rebounds and 6 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)
