Justin Cobbs claims FIBA Europe Cup weekly honour - Oct 27, 2016

Justin Cobbs
American Justin Cobbs (191-G-91, agency: Pensack Sports) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's leader Gravelines and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 2.
The 25-year old guard got a double-double of 25 points and ten assists, while his team crushed Kormend (#3, 1-1) with 19-point margin 95-76. It allowed Gravelines to jump to the first place in the FIBA Europe Cup group B. But it's just the very beginning of the season and Gravelines won both games without losing any. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Cobbs had a remarkable 54.5% from 2-point range. He turned to be Gravelines' top player in his first season with the team.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was young Martynas Echodas (204-C/F-97) of Siauliai. Echodas impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 25 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Siauliai lost that game 75-84 to Apoel (1-1). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Echodas is a newcomer at Siauliai and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was Karam Mashour (198-F-91) of second-ranked Bnei Hertzeliyya. Mashour scored 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a key player of Bnei Hertzeliyya, leading his team to a 91-67 easy win against Prievidza in a game of the week. Bnei Hertzeliyya needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in group F. Their record at this point is 1 victory and 1 lost game. Mashour has a great season in FIBA Europe Cup. After only 2 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.5ppg (8th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Yordan Bozov (191-G-79) of Rilski - 28 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Frank Elegar (208-C-86) of Enisey - 20 points and 11 rebounds
6. Lance Jeter (191-PG-88) of Groningen - 30 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
7. Kyndall Dykes (192-SG-87) of UBT Cluj Napoca - 21 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists
8. John Roberson (180-PG-88) of Chalon - 21 points, 2 rebounds and 13 assists
9. Terry Allen (203-F-93) of Kormend - 25 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Torey Thomas (178-PG-85) of AEK - 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 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)
