Play-Off bracket4

Minna Sten
25-year old forward Minna Sten (189-F-87) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for HoNsU and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 23.
She had a double-double of 26 points and 16 rebounds, while her team crushed HyPo (#11, 2-16) with 16-point margin 60-44. HoNsU maintains the 7th position in Finnish SM-sarja. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. HoNsU will need more victories to improve their 10-8 record. It's Sten's second year at HoNsU and it's hard to imagine this team without her. Sten has impressive league stats. She is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 10.9rpg) and averages solid 3.7bpg and 53.1% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Phebe Smith (183-F, agency: Gamble Sports Management) of HyPo. She is American forward in her first season at HyPo. In the last game Smith recorded impressive double-double of 19 points and 24 rebounds. Bad luck as HyPo lost that game 44-60 to the higher-ranked HoNsU (#7, 10-8). HyPo are still at the very bottom. 16 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories HyPo managed to get this year. Smith is a newcomer at HyPo and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Rosetta Adzasu (165-G-90) of Kerava (#8). Adzasu showcased her all-around game by recording 19 points, eleven rebounds (!!!) and seven assists in the last round. Despite Adzasu's great performance Kerava lost 63-70 to slightly higher-ranked Huima (#6, 10-8). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Kerava not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 12 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Adzasu could try to bring Kerava's a little bit higher in the standings. Adzasu has individually a great season in Finland. After 18 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.0ppg (7th best) and assists with 4.0apg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Kenya Robinson (182-C-70) of Huima - 20 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Jelena Reshetko (184-C/F-86) of Catz - 23 points and 9 rebounds
6. Korinne Campbell (182-G/F-88) of PeKa - 20 points and 11 rebounds
7. Chandrea Jones (175-SF-87) of Catz - 26 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Alexandria Anderson (185-G/F-86) of Catz - 19 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Earlysia Marchbanks (180-G) of Kerava - 19 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Shenita Landry (188-F-87) of PeKa - 15 points and 15 rebounds

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)
