Phebe Smith
American Phebe Smith (183-F, agency: Gamble Sports Management) put on an amazing game in the last round for HyPo and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 22.
The -year old forward had a double-double of 18 points and fifteen rebounds, while her team beat Kerava (#8, 6-11) 72-66. HyPo maintains the 11th position in Finnish SM-sarja. The season is in a full swing, so it's only a dream for the team to make it into top half of the standings. For contrary they may face relegation if the situation turns from bad to worse. HyPo have already lost 15 games and recorded just two victories. Smith turned to be HyPo's top player in her first season with the team. Phebe Smith averages this season 13.4ppg and 14.3rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was another HyPo's star - 22-year old U.S. Virgin Islands swingman Natalie Day (182-G/F-90). Day impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 23 points and 15 rebounds. It was enough for HyPo to edge the higher-ranked Kerava (#8, 6-11) by 6 points 72-66. Despite this victory they still are dead at the bottom. 15 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories HyPo managed to get this year. Day is a newcomer at HyPo and it seems she did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Jasmin Holliday (182-G/F-90) of Huima (#6). Holliday scored 19 points and grabbed sixteen rebounds (!!!). She was a key player of Huima, leading her team to a 65-54 win against the lower-ranked BC Nokia (#10, 3-15). Huima needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 9 victories and 8 lost games. Holliday has a very solid season. In 17 games in Finland she scored 17.3ppg. She also has 8.8rpg and 2.1spg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Niina Laaksonen (185-F/C-85) of ToPo - 19 points and 17 rebounds
5. Secily Ray (180-F-90) of FoA - 14 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Chandrea Jones (175-SF-87) of Catz - 18 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Shenita Landry (188-F-87) of PeKa - 16 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Earlysia Marchbanks (180-G) of Kerava - 12 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Callan Taylor (182-F-90) of TuRi - 26 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Kathlyn Varno (185-F-88) of HyPo - 10 points, 16 rebounds and 3 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)
