Parker
American Candace Parker (193-C-86) had an amazing evening in the last round for league's leader UMMC and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 11.
The 26-year old center had the game-high 21 points adding seven rebounds and six assists for UMMC in her team's victory, helping them to crush CCC Polkowice (#5, 4-6) with 18-point margin 85-67. It allowed UMMC to consolidate first place in the Euroleague group C. They maintain perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is already in a full swing and UMMC still have not lost a single game, getting all 9 victories. In the team's last game Parker had a remarkable 63.6% from 2-point range. She turned to be UMMC's top player in her first season with the team. University of Tennessee graduate has very impressive stats this year. Parker is in league's top in rebounds (4th best: 9.4rpg) and averages solid 1.3bpg and 61.0% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 22-year old American guard Shenise Johnson (180-G-90) of UNIQA Eurol.. Johnson impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 24 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as UNIQA Eurol. lost that game 69-74 to the higher-ranked Fenerbahce (#1, 7-2). UNIQA Eurol. managed to keep the same 6th spot in group B. 8 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories UNIQA Eurol. managed to get this year. Johnson is a newcomer at UNIQA Eurol. and it seems she did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.8ppg (#3). She also registered 8.2 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was Montenegrin Iva Perovanovic (188-C/F-83) of Nadezhda O. (#4). Perovanovic scored 15 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). She was a key player of Nadezhda O., leading her team to a 71-68 win against slightly lower-ranked Targoviste (#5, 3-6). Nadezhda O. needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams in group B. Their record at this point is 6 victories and 4 lost games. Perovanovic has a very solid season. In 10 games in Euroleague she scored 8.6ppg. She also has 5.5rpg and FGP: 55.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Latoya Williams (190-C-87) of Novi Zagreb - 24 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Sandrine Gruda (193-C-87) of UMMC - 20 points and 12 rebounds
6. Jantel Lavender (190-C-88) of Familia Schio - 26 points and 13 rebounds
7. Aneika Henry (193-C-86) of Rivas Ecopolis - 21 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Sandra Dijon (193-C-79) of Arras - 14 points, 15 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Cappie Pondexter (175-G-83) of Fenerbahce - 16 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Naignouma Coulibaly (191-C-89) of Mondeville - 8 points, 14 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)
