Mike Smith
29-year old guard Mike Smith (198-G-87, agency: Inception Sports) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for second-ranked Antwerp and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3 (Second Stage).
He had the game-high 23 points adding nine rebounds and five assists for Antwerp in his team's victory, helping them to crush Prievidza (#3, 1-2) with 17-point margin 111-94. Antwerp is placed at 2nd position in their group in FIBA Europe Cup group L. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this stage. Antwerp will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. In the team's last game Smith had a remarkable 60.0% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Antwerp and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Mike Smith averages this season 10.6ppg and 5.6rpg.

Second best performed player last round was Davon Jefferson (204-F-86) of league's second-best Gaziantep. He is American forward in his first season at Gaziantep. In the last game Jefferson recorded impressive double-double of 26 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Gaziantep lost that game 83-102 to Chalon (3-0). The Second Stage 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. Jefferson is a newcomer at Gaziantep and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.8ppg (#3). He also registered 9.8 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to another Antwerp's star - guard Jason Clark (188-G-90). Clark scored 26 points and passed nine assists. He was another key player of Antwerp, helping his team with a 111-94 easy win against #3 ranked Prievidza in a game of the week. Antwerp needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in group L. Their record at this point is 2 victories and 1 lost game. Clark has a great season in FIBA Europe Cup. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 15.1ppg (5th best). He also has FGP: 52.4% and 3PT: 52.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Axel Bouteille (201-G/F-95) of Chalon - 24 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Ousmane Barro (207-C/F-84) of UBT Cluj Napoca - 19 points and 13 rebounds
6. Csaba Ferencz (194-SF-85) of Kormend - 26 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Maxym Korniyenko (205-F/C-87) of Lukoil Acad. - 17 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Andell Cumberbatch (196-G-93) of Oberwart - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Toni Bizaca (202-F-82) of Sodertalje - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Frank Elegar (208-C-86) of Enisey - 22 points and 5 rebounds

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)
