Donald Rutherford claims Danish Ligaen weekly honour - Jan 13, 2013

Donald
Rutherford
American Donald Rutherford (199-F/C-87) had an amazing evening in the last round for league's leader Svendborg and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 21.
The 25-year old power forward had a double-double of 20 points and thirteen rebounds, while his team crushed Aarhus BC (#9, 5-13) with 22-point margin 83-61. It allowed Svendborg to consolidate first place in the Danish Ligaen. Svendborg have a solid 16-2 record. Rutherford turned to be Svendborg's top player in his first season with the team. Catawba College graduate has very impressive stats this year. Rutherford is league's best scorer averaging so far 24.4ppg. Rutherford is in league's top in rebounds (2nd best: 10.5rpg) and averages solid 61.9% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 30-year old American forward Bonell Colas (205-F-82) of Randers. Colas impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds. Of course he lead Randers to another comfortable win outscoring slightly higher-ranked Naestved (#5, 10-8) 96-76. Randers' 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 7-10 record. Colas is a newcomer at Randers 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 24.3ppg (#2). He also registered 14.8 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was American Caleb Walker (193-G-89) of Naestved (#5). Walker showcased his all-around game by recording 21 points, fifteen rebounds (!!!) and six assists in the last round. Despite Walker's great performance Naestved lost 76-96 to slightly lower-ranked Randers (#6, 7-10). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Naestved needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 10 victories and 8 lost games. Walker has a great season in Denmark. After 18 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.3ppg (7th best) and rebounds with 8.4rpg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Darko Jukic (198-G-90) of Horsens IC - 33 points and 9 rebounds
5. Damon Smith (200-F-88) of SISU - 23 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Justin Baker (203-F-89) of Vaerlose - 27 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Adama Darboe (190-G-86) of Svendborg - 18 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists
8. Gregory Washington (208-C/F-84) of Svendborg - 21 points and 6 rebounds
9. Miguel Ortega (188-PG-91) of Randers - 10 points, 4 rebounds and 13 assists
10. Axel Karason (194-SF-83) of Vaerlose - 18 points, 9 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)
