Jallow's double-double lands him 1st Division Player of the Week award - Dec 1, 2012


POSTED BY:

Pierre
Jallow
33-year old power forward Pierre Jallow (203-F/C-79) had a very impressive game in the last round for Jarvenpaa and receives a Eurobasket.com 1st Division Player of the Week award for round 10.
He had a double-double of 32 points and 18 rebounds, while his team edged out BC Jyvaskyla (#8, 3-9) 90-87. Jarvenpaa is placed at 5th position in Finnish 1st Division. Jarvenpaa is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 5-5 record. It's Jallow's second year at Jarvenpaa and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Pierre Jallow averages just after three games 25.7ppg and 13.7rpg.

Second best performed player last round was Brian Moultrie (198-C/F-87) of BC Nokia. He is American in his first season at BC Nokia. In the last game Moultrie recorded impressive double-double of 24 points and 16 rebounds. Bad luck as BC Nokia was edged by slightly higher-ranked Oulun NMKY (#4, 5-4) 81-78. This loss caused BC Nokia to drop to 5th position in group A. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 4-4 record is not bad and everything may still change. Moultrie is a newcomer at BC Nokia and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 26.6ppg (#1). He also registered 15.6 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Nafis Ricks (188-G) of BC Jyvaskyla (#8). Ricks showcased his all-around game by recording 24 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in the last round. He was a key player of BC Jyvaskyla, leading his team to a 79-67 win against slightly higher-ranked JyWe (#6, 5-6). BC Jyvaskyla can only dream about fighting for top spots in group B. They have rather bad season and 3-9 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Ricks he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Ricks has individually a great season in Finland. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 22.3ppg (3rd best) and assists with 5.0apg (2nd best). He also has 2.6spg and FGP: 59.8%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. La Trice Little (187-G-79) of Kerava ET - 26 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists
5. Ville Pyykkonen (203-F-77) of JyWe - 32 points and 12 rebounds
6. Michael Corpening (203-F-87) of BC Jyvaskyla - 20 points, 20 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Russell Frederick (185-PG-88) of Oulun NMKY - 30 points and 6 rebounds
8. Arsene Towa (191-F-81) of Kerava ET - 18 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Joni Herrala (190-G-94) of HBA-Marsky - 36 points and 6 rebounds
10. Jerrah Young (201-F-85) of Porvoon Tarmo - 15 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
