Angelo
Caloiaro
American-Italian Angelo Caloiaro (205-F-89, agency: Pensack Sports) had a very impressive game in the last round for league's leader Demir IBB and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 5 (Second Stage).
The 27-year old forward had the game-high 23 points adding five rebounds for Demir IBB in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Prievidza (#4, 1-4) with 34-point margin 111-77. It allowed Demir IBB to jump to the first place in the FIBA Europe Cup group L. Demir IBB have a solid 4-1 record. Caloiaro turned to be Demir IBB's top player in his first season with the team. Angelo Caloiaro averages this season 12.0ppg and 5.3rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 32-year old American point guard Danny Gibson (177-PG-84) of P second-ranked Lukoil Acad.. Gibson impressed basketball fans with 27 points, 3 rebounds and 9 assists. Bad luck as Lukoil Acad. lost that game 92-97 to slightly higher-ranked Enisey (#1, 4-1). Lukoil Acad. managed to keep the same second spot in group P. His team's 3-2 record is not bad at all. Gibson is a newcomer at Lukoil Acad. 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 Peter Lorant (206-F/C-85, agency: Octagon Europe) of top-ranked Alba. Lorant showcased his all-around game by recording 23 points, ten rebounds and five assists in the last round. He was a key player of Alba, leading his team to a 97-89 win against #4 ranked BK Pardubice in a game of the week. Alba confirms their top position in group O. Lorant has a very solid season. In 11 games in FIBA Europe Cup he scored 15.1ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Filip Barovic (207-F/C-90) of Telekom Bsk - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Andrija Stipanovic (209-C-86) of Demir IBB - 21 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists
6. Kenneth Hayes (188-PG-87) of Demir IBB - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists
7. John Roberson (180-PG-88) of Chalon - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Frank Elegar (208-C-86) of Enisey - 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Richard Solomon (208-F-92) of Gravelines - 22 points and 6 rebounds
10. Vytenis Lipkevicius (196-F-89) of Vytautas - 16 points, 13 rebounds and 3 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)

Oostende, Telekom Baskets and Nanterre join semifinal stage - 9 days ago
Oostende - Enisey 95-79 OT Oostende needed overtime to overcome the 12-point deficit from the opening leg and advance into semifinal stage. The game was mostly controlled by Oostende. Enisey was better in third quarter 18-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening, at least not yet.
