Croatian A1 round 6 best performance: Ronald Ross - Nov 12, 2012
follow us on
American guard Ronald Ross (188-G-83) had an amazing evening in the last round for Jolly, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 6. The 29-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, six rebounds and four assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Zabok (#7, 2-4) 84-70. Jolly is placed at 4th position in Croatian A1. Jolly is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 3-3 record. In the team's last game Ross had a remarkable 63.6% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Jolly and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Former Texas Tech University star has very solid stats this year. Ross is in league's top in points (2nd best: 20.0ppg), assists (3rd best: 4.2apg) and averages impressive 2.8spg and 43.5% from behind 3-point line.
The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old Marino Sarlija (207-C/F-89) of Djuro Djakovic. Sarlija had a very good evening with a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Djuro Djakovic lost that game 62-84 to the higher-ranked Darda (3-3). This loss caused Djuro Djakovic to drop to 6th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 3-3 record is not bad and everything may still change. Sarlija is a newcomer at Djuro Djakovic 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 on the list of top players last round was guard Mislav Peric (191-G-88) of Dubrovnik (#10). Peric scored 28 points and grabbed five rebounds. Despite Peric's great performance Dubrovnik lost 84-90 to slightly higher-ranked Osjecki Sokol (#9, 2-4). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Dubrovnik can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-5 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Peric he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Peric has individually a great season in Croatia. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 12.5ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 2.5rpg (3rd best).

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)
