27-year old Ian Vougioukas (212-C/F-85) had a great game in the last round for league's best team Unics and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 4.
He had a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds, while his team beat Panionios (#4, 0-4), the league's bottom-ranked team 82-73. It allowed Unics to consolidate first place in the Eurocup group F. They maintain perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Unics already had a very good start winning all 4 without losing a single one. Vougioukas turned to be Unics' top player in his first season with the team. Ian Vougioukas averages this season 15.0ppg and 5.3rpg.

Second best performed player last round was Nikos Pappas (195-G-90, agency: FCM) of Panionios. He is a guard in his first season at Panionios. In the last game Pappas recorded impressive 34 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Bad luck as Panionios lost that game 73-82 to group F's leader Unics (#1, 4-0). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in group F. Panionios still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. 4 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Pappas is a newcomer at Panionios and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 21.0ppg (#4).

Third place about best performers goes to guard Lynn Greer (186-PG-79) of Azovmash (#4). Greer scored 28 points and passed ten assists (!!!). Despite Greer's great performance Azovmash lost 88-95in overtime to #2 ranked Banvit BK. But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Azovmash can only dream about fighting for top spots in group D. They have awful season losing so far all 4 games. Too bad for Greer he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Greer has individually a great season in Eurocup. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 6.3apg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Brian Asbury (200-SF-86) of Cajasol - 27 points and 5 rebounds
5. Charles Davis (205-C-84) of Banvit BK - 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Mire Chatman (187-PG-78) of Unics - 12 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists
7. Vladimir Stimac (211-C-87) of Banvit BK - 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Walter Hodge (183-PG-86) of Stelmet ZG - 22 points and 6 assists
9. Artur Drozdov (200-SF-80) of Budivelnyk - 18 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Derrick Obasohan (198-F-81) of Cholet - 19 points and 7 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)
