Sacko
Forward Fatimatou Sacko (177-F-85) had an amazing evening in the last round for second-ranked Lattes Montp., receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 1.
The 27-year old player had a double-double of 30 points and 10 rebounds, while her team beat Satu Mare (#3, 0-1) 77-67. Sacko has many years of experience at Lattes Montp., through which he has constantly improved. Fatimatou Sacko has solid league stats. She is league's best scorer averaging so far 30.0ppg. Sacko is in league's top in rebounds (9th best: 10.0rpg) and averages impressive 70.6% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 31-year old Russian Lyubov Alyoshkina (203-C-81) of Olimpia. Alyoshkina had a very good evening with a double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Olimpia was edged in overtime by Young Cats (1-0) 75-74. The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Alyoshkina is well-known at Olimpia and is a proven leader in her second season with the team. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 23.0ppg (#4). She also registered 12.0 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was guard Camilla Blands (180-G-85) of SISU (#4). Blands showcased her all-around game by recording 15 points, ten rebounds and seven assists in the last round. Despite Blands' great performance SISU lost 63-88 to Chevakata. But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. SISU can only dream about fighting for top spots in group A.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Aleksandra Khomenchuk (202-C-89) of Gorizont - 13 points, 17 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Ana Turcinovic (190-C-93) of Elitzur Ramla - 19 points and 10 rebounds
6. Natalia Myasoedova (196-C-87) of Dynamo-GUVD - 24 points and 9 rebounds
7. Angelica Robinson (197-F-87) of Tarbes - 18 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists
8. LaToya Sanders (191-PF-86) of Kayseri - 14 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Courtney Paris (191-C-87) of Botas - 17 points and 8 rebounds
10. Shekinna Stricklen (187-G/F-90) of Antakya - 20 points and 10 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)
