Tywain McKee
American Tywain McKee (188-PG-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league's leader Triumph and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3.
The 26-year old playmaker had the game-high 32 points adding six rebounds and six assists for Triumph in his team's victory, helping them to beat VEF Riga (#3, 1-2) 91-84. It allowed Triumph to consolidate first place in the Eurocup group C. They maintain perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Triumph already had a very good start winning all 3 without losing a single one. In the team's last game McKee had a remarkable 76.9% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Triumph and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Coppin State College graduate has very impressive stats this year. McKee is in league's top in points (3rd best: 23.3ppg) and averages solid 3.3spg and 66.7% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 28-year old Serbian power forward Oliver Stevic (204-F/C-84, agency: Beo Basket) of Stelmet ZG. Stevic impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 21 points and 15 rebounds. Bad luck as Stelmet ZG lost that game 74-80 to Oostende (2-1). 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. Stevic is a newcomer at Stelmet ZG and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Justin Doellman (206-F-85) of top-ranked Valencia. Doellman got into 30-points club by scoring 31 points in the last round. He was a key player of Valencia, leading his team to a 97-64 easy win against #3 ranked s.Oliver Baskets in a game of the week. Valencia started extremely well this year. They recorded 3 victories without losing a single game in group D. Doellman turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Doellman has a very solid season. In 3 games in Eurocup he scored 14.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Igor Rakocevic (191-G-78) of Crvena Zvezda - 28 points, 2 rebounds and 7 assists
5. Marcus Goree (201-F-77) of Cholet - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Sammy Mejia (198-G-83) of Banvit BK - 28 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Marvis Thornton (194-G-77) of Banco di Sard. - 33 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Darius Songaila (204-C/F-78) of BC Donetsk - 24 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Nick Calathes (198-PG-89) of Lokomotiv - 20 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists
10. Vladimir Stimac (211-C-87) of Banvit BK - 22 points, 7 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)
