American guard Jordan Murphree (183-G-87, agency: Merit Sports) had a great game in the last round for Honka, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 24.
The 25-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 13 rebounds, while her team beat TuRi (#9, 5-14) 84-71. Honka is placed at 4th position in Finnish SM-sarja. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Honka will need more victories to improve their 12-7 record. In the team's last game Murphree had a remarkable 53.8% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. She turned to be Honka's top player in her first season with the team.

Jeltema had a very good evening with a double-double of 22 points and 19 rebounds. Of course Honka cruised to a 76-66 relatively comfortable win over slightly higher-ranked FoA (12-7). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Honka consolidated its place in top 4 of the standings. Her team's 12-7 record is not bad at all. Jeltema is a newcomer at Honka, but is already one of team's top players. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 26.9ppg (#1). She also registered 9.3 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American Chandrea Jones (175-SF-87, agency: LBM Management) of league's top team Catz. Jones showcased her all-around game by recording 24 points, eight rebounds and nine assists in the last round. She was a key player of Catz, leading her team to a 98-58 easy win against the lower-ranked Kerava (#8, 6-13). Catz confirms their top position in the standings Jones has a great season in Finland. After 19 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.8ppg (6th best) and assists with 3.9apg (5th best). She also has 2.7spg and FGP: 57.6%.

10. Sofia Pelander (188-C-92) of TuRi - 20 points and 11 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)
