28-year old forward Melisa Can (188-F-84) put on an amazing game in the last round for Tarsus Bld and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 12.
She had a double-double of 24 points and 12 rebounds, while her team beat UNI Gyor (#5, 5-6) 81-70. Tarsus Bld is placed at 6th position in Euroleague group A. Too late to improve their position as they are currently ranked such low. They already lost 8 games and recorded just two victories. Can turned to be Tarsus Bld's top player in her first season with the team. Rutgers, The State University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Can is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 8.2rpg) and averages solid 57.6% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Natalie Hurst (164-PG-83) of UNI Gyor. She is Australian guard in her first season at UNI Gyor. In the last game Hurst recorded impressive double-double of 26 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as UNI Gyor lost that game 70-81 to slightly lower-ranked Tarsus Bld (#6, 2-8). This loss caused UNI Gyor to drop to 5th position in group A. Her team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-6 record. Hurst is a newcomer at UNI Gyor and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to center Jantel Lavender (190-C-88) of Familia Schio (#3). Lavender scored 25 points and grabbed ten rebounds. Despite Lavender's great performance Familia Schio lost 67-78 to #2 ranked Good Angels. But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing Familia Schio needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams in group B. Their record is 7 victories and 4 lost games. Lavender has a great season in Euroleague. After 11 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.0ppg (3rd best) and rebounds with 8.1rpg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Angel McCoughtry (187-SF-86) of Fenerbahce - 17 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Delisha Milton-Jones (186-PF-74) of Tarsus Bld - 24 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Sancho Lyttle (192-C-83) of Galatasaray - 16 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Plenette Pierson (188-PF-81) of Good Angels - 21 points and 9 rebounds
8. Lindsay Whalen (175-PG-82) of Galatasaray - 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Anna Cruz (173-PG-86) of Rivas Ecopolis - 21 points and 2 rebounds
10. Belinda Snell (181-SF-81) of CCC Polkowice - 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 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)
