Frank Elegar
30-year old center Frank Elegar (208-C-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Enisey and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3.
He had a double-double of 19 points and 16 rebounds, while his team edged out Sigal Prishtina (0-3) 102-101. It allowed Enisey to consolidate first place in the FIBA Europe Cup group H. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Enisey already had a very good start winning all 3 without losing a single one. Elegar turned to be Enisey's top player in his first season with the team. Drexel University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Elegar leads league in rebounds with 12.0rpg. Elegar is in league's top in and averages solid 1.7bpg and 71.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Seth Tuttle (203-F-92) of Limburg United. He is American forward in his first season at Limburg United. In the last game Tuttle recorded impressive double-double of 28 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Limburg United was edged by Gravelines (3-0) 98-95. 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. Tuttle is a newcomer at Limburg United and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 21.7ppg (#4). His other stats are also decent: 7.0rpg and 5.0apg.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Dominez Burnett (196-F-92) of BK Pardubice. Burnett got into 30-points club by scoring 31 points in the last round. He went also for six rebounds. He was a key player of BK Pardubice, leading his team to a 108-90 easy win against Siauliai in a game of the week. BK Pardubice needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in group J. Their record at this point is 2 victories and 1 lost game. Burnett has a great season in FIBA Europe Cup. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.7ppg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Marko Spica (205-C-86) of Sopron KC - 25 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Martynas Echodas (204-C/F-97) of Siauliai - 24 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Vytenis Lipkevicius (196-F-89) of Vytautas - 24 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Justin Edwards (190-G-92) of Alba - 22 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Jabarie Hinds (180-PG-92) of Sigal Prishtina - 23 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists
9. Cameron Long (193-G-88) of Steaua CSM - 20 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists
10. Lance Jeter (191-PG-88) of Groningen - 25 points, 6 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)
