Cedomir
Vitkovac
Experienced Serbian Cedomir Vitkovac (201-F-82, agency: Beo Basket) had an amazing evening in the last round for league's second-best Buducnost and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 1 (Top 16).
The 30-year old forward had a double-double of 24 points and twelve rebounds, while his team crushed Triumph (#4, 0-1) with 21-point margin 90-69. Buducnost maintains the 2nd position in Eurocup group I. But it's just the very beginning of the Top 16 and Buducnost won just one (their first) game. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Vitkovac had a remarkable 58.3% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Buducnost and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Vitkovac has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (7th best: 7.0rpg) and averages solid 52.3% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 26-year old U.S. Virgin Islands point guard Walter Hodge (183-PG-86) of second-ranked Stelmet ZG. Hodge impressed basketball fans with 27 points and 6 assists. Of course Stelmet ZG cruised to a 76-67 relatively comfortable win over Cajasol (0-1). His team has extremely good start of the Top 16. They won their first game. However the Top 16 is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Hodge is well-known by Stelmet ZG fans and he already established his position as one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.7ppg (#1). He also recorded 5.0 assists per game.

The third best performed player last round was Rafael Martinez (191-G-82) of second-ranked Valencia. Martinez scored 27 points. He was a key player of Valencia, leading his team to a 86-82 win against #4 ranked VEF Riga in a game of the week. Valencia has a very good start of the Top 16. But there was just one game played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Martinez also has a very good start of the Top 16 with very strong stats. Martinez has a very solid season. In 7 games in Eurocup he scored 14.3ppg. He also has FGP: 76.0% and 3PT: 43.3%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Aleks Maric (211-C-84) of Lokomotiv - 14 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Igor Rakocevic (191-G-78) of Crvena Zvezda - 32 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
6. John Bryant (208-C-87) of Ratiopharm - 20 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Chuck Eidson (203-F-80) of Unics - 23 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Andrew Naymick (209-C-85) of CEZ Nymburk - 20 points and 7 rebounds
9. Radoslav Rancik (207-F/C-79) of CEZ Nymburk - 30 points and 7 rebounds
10. Earl Rowland (188-G-83) of VEF Riga - 21 points, 5 rebounds and 9 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)
