25-year old guard Mirjam Nikolai (177-G-86) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's best team KK Tallina U. and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 8.
She had the game-high 28 points adding seven rebounds and five assists for KK Tallina U. in her team's victory, helping them to outclass Audentes SG/N. (#4, 1-9) with 31-point margin 87-56. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed KK Tallina U. to consolidate first place in the Estonian Meistriliiga. KK Tallina U. has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 9-1. It's Nikolai's second year at KK Tallina U. and it's hard to imagine this team without her. Nikolai has impressive league stats. She is in league's top in points (3rd best: 16.0ppg), rebounds (8th best: 7.1rpg), assists (3rd best: 3.4apg) and averages solid 56.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Annika Koster (185-F/C-92) of league's second-best Eclex Tallinn. She is a forward in her first season at Eclex Tallinn. In the last game Koster recorded impressive double-double of 13 points and 14 rebounds. Of course she lead Eclex Tallinn to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked Audentes SG/N. (#4, 1-9) 83-48. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Eclex Tallinn consolidated its place in top 2 of the standings. Her team's 7-2 record is not bad at all. Koster is a newcomer at Eclex Tallinn and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to another Eclex Tallinn's star - forward Kerttu Jallai (180-F-90). Jallai scored 19 points and grabbed ten rebounds. She was another key player of Eclex Tallinn, helping her team with a 83-48 easy win against #4 ranked Audentes SG/N.. Eclex Tallinn needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 7 victories and 2 lost games. Jallai has a great season in Estonia. After only 9 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.0ppg (best scorer), rebounds with 9.2rpg (2nd best) and assists with 3.0apg (4th best). She also has 2.1spg, 2.0bpg and FGP: 51.4%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Mirjam Nikolai (177-G-86) of KK Tallina U. - 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Pirgit Puu (170-PG-88) of KK Tallina U. - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Trine Kasemagi (190-C-95) of KK Tallina U. - 21 points and 10 rebounds
7. Triin Teppo (186-F/C-90) of Tartu Ulikooli - 21 points and 8 rebounds
8. Kadri-Ann Lass (177-F-96) of Audentes SG/N. - 18 points
9. Merilin Metsalu (177-G-87) of Eclex Tallinn - 18 points and 2 rebounds
10. Pirgit Puu (170-PG-88) of KK Tallina U. - 15 points and 6 assists

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
