Tina Charles (193-C-88, agency: LBM Management) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Wisla Can-Pak and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 8.
The 24-year old center had a double-double of 33 points and fifteen rebounds, while her team edged out Bourges (#2, 5-2) 68-64. Wisla Can-Pak maintains the 3rd position in Euroleague group A. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Wisla Can-Pak will need more victories to improve their 4-3 record. Charles turned to be Wisla Can-Pak's top player in her first season with the team. University of Connecticut graduate has very impressive stats this year. Charles is league's best scorer averaging so far 29.8ppg and leads league in rebounds with 13.8rpg. Charles is in league's top in and averages solid 63.5% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 24-year old American center Jantel Lavender (190-C-88) of league's best team Familia Schio. Lavender impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds. It was enough for Familia Schio to edge the lower-ranked Targoviste (#5, 3-4) by 4 points 66-62. Of course Familia Schio still keep group B's top spot. Her team lost just one game this season, while they won 6 matches. Lavender is a newcomer at Familia Schio and it seems she did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was Danielle Marie Robinson (178-G-89) of Tarsus Bld (#7). Robinson showcased her all-around game by recording 26 points, five rebounds and six assists in the last round. Despite Robinson's great performance Tarsus Bld lost 79-83 to the higher-ranked Spartak V MR (#1, 6-1). But her team cannot count on just a single shooter as she also needs help of the other teammates. Tarsus Bld can only dream about fighting for top spots in group A. They have rather bad season and 1-6 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Robinson she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Robinson has individually a great season in Euroleague. After only 6 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.7ppg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Candice Dupree (188-F/C-84) of Spartak V MR - 27 points and 10 rebounds
5. Rebekkah Brunson (191-F/C-81) of USK Praha - 21 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Jelena Skerovic (176-G-80) of USK Praha - 10 points, 9 rebounds and 11 assists
7. Nnemkadi Ogwumike (189-F/C-90) of CCC Polkowice - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Sancho Lyttle (192-C-83) of Galatasaray - 16 points and 13 rebounds

10. Ieva Kublina (193-C-82) of UNI Gyor - 13 points, 11 rebounds and 2 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)
