Perry Petty
American-Guinea-Bissau Point guard Perry Petty (185-PG-88) had a great game in the last round for top-ranked Kormend, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 4 (Second Stage).
The 28-year old player was the main contributor (19 points, five rebounds and eight assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush Nanterre (3-1) with 17-point margin 91-74. It allowed Kormend to take over top position in the FIBA Europe Cup group N. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this stage. Kormend has a very solid 3-1 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. It's Petty's second year at Kormend and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Former University of Texas Rio Grande Valley star has very solid stats this year. Petty is in league's top in assists (4th best: 7.3apg) and averages impressive 2.4spg. Worth to mention Petty played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

The second best player in last round's games was 24-year old American Steve Zack (211-C-92) of P second-ranked Lukoil Acad.. Zack had a very good evening with a double-double of 20 points and 15 rebounds. Of course Lukoil Acad. cruised to a 76-67 relatively comfortable win over Benfica (#4, 0-4). Lukoil Acad.'s second position in group P has not changed. His team's 3-1 record is not bad at all. Zack is a newcomer at Lukoil Acad., but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American swingman Cameron Clark (201-G/F-91) of league's top team Chalon. Clark scored 22 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Chalon, leading his team to a 88-66 easy win against #4 ranked Targu Mures in a game of the week. Chalon started extremely well this Second Stage. They recorded 4 victories without losing a single game in group K. Clark turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Clark has a great season in FIBA Europe Cup. After 10 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.7ppg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Stephen Dennis (198-G-87) of Bnei Hertzeliyya - 21 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Dominez Burnett (196-F-92) of BK Pardubice - 20 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Lenzelle Smith Jr. (193-G-91) of Kormend - 17 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Ken Horton (199-F-89) of Telekom Bsk - 17 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Maksym Pustozvonov (200-SF-87) of UBT Cluj Napoca - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Derek Jackson (185-PG-91) of Oberwart - 19 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists
10. Andrew Rautins (193-G-86) of Gaziantep - 19 points, 5 rebounds and 7 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)
