-year old forward Quinton Doggett (203-F) had an amazing evening in the last round for Naestved and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 16. He had a double-double of 22 points and 13 rebounds, while his team outclassed Aalborg (#10, 1-12) with 32-point margin 97-65. Naestved maintains the 5th position in Danish league. Naestved 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 7-6 record. Doggett turned to be Naestved's top player in his first season with the team.
Second best performed player last round was Bonell Colas (205-F-82) of Randers. He is American forward in his first season at Randers. In the last game Colas recorded impressive double-double of 20 points and 16 rebounds. Bad luck as Randers was edged by league's leader Svendborg (#1, 13-0) 98-94. Randers is still second from the bottom in the standings. 10 lost games are too many comparing to just three victories Randers managed to get this year. Colas is a newcomer at Randers and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 24.9ppg (#1). He also registered 14.8 boards per game.
Third place about best performers goes to swingman Randy Dezouvre (195-F/G-87) of Aarhus BC (#6). Dezouvre scored 21 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Dezouvre's great performance Aarhus BC lost 74-77 to slightly higher-ranked SISU (#4, 9-4). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Aarhus BC not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 8 games, recording just five victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Dezouvre could try to bring Aarhus BC's a little bit higher in the standings. Dezouvre has individually a great season in Denmark. After 13 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 9.5rpg (4th best).
Other top performing players last week: 4. Damian Ocana (198-F-86) of Randers - 31 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists 5. Morten Sahlertz (198-F-89) of Bakken - 15 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists 6. Adama Darboe (190-G-86) of Svendborg - 22 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists 7. Donald Rutherford (199-F/C-87) of Svendborg - 16 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists 8. Mikkel Plannthin (195-G-88) of Svendborg - 16 points, 4 rebounds and 10 assists 9. Mads Frandsen (203-C/F-90) of Naestved - 15 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists 10. Claus Magaard (194-F/G-86) of Svendborg - 23 points and 4 rebounds
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)

He played last season at Stevnsgade BBK (Ligaen). In 26 games he recorded 14.5ppg, 6.2rpg and 2.0apg. Great season indeed as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-Danish Ligaen Honorable Mention.

The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Moss was voted Eurobasket.com All-Danish Ligaen 1st Team back in 2007.
He is quite experienced player. Thanks to Moss' pro career he managed to play on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America) in nine different countries. Moss has played previously professionally in Argentina (Villa Angela), France (Le Portel), Germany (Science City Jena), Israel, Spain (Palencia Baloncesto), Switzerland, Uruguay (Aguada and Guruyu Waston) and Japan (Bambitious Nara). He is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at BMS Skovlunde. Moss attended University of Florida until 2006 and it will be his eleventh (!!!) season as a professional player. The scouts decsribe him following way:
A relentless rebounder and shot blocker with good range for a big man. Runs the floor well and can play with his back to the basket. Will provide depth in the front court positions. Has a competitive spirit.
