Jahmar
Thorpe
American forward Jahmar Thorpe (198-F-84) had a great game in the last round for FoKoPo, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 29.
The 28-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 10 rebounds, while his team beat Nilan Bisons (#3, 21-6) 99-91. FoKoPo maintains the 11th position in Finnish Korisliiga. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 21 games and recorded just seven victories. In the team's last game Thorpe had a remarkable 69.2% from 2-point range. He turned to be FoKoPo's top player in his first season with the team. Former University of Houston star has very solid stats this year. Thorpe is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 8.1rpg) and averages impressive 53.0% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old American Martin Zeno (196-G-85) of Nilan Bisons. Zeno had a very good evening with 29 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Bad luck as Nilan Bisons lost that game 91-99 to the lower-ranked FoKoPo (#11, 7-21). This loss caused Nilan Bisons to drop to 3rd position in the standings. His team's 21-6 record is not bad at all. Zeno is well-known at Nilan Bisons and is a proven leader in his second season with the team. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.3ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 6.3rpg and 4.5apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was Bosnia and Herzegovina guard Bojan Sarcevic (190-G-88) of league's top team KTP. Sarcevic scored 25 points and passed four assists. He was a key player of KTP, leading his team to a 77-64 easy win against the lower-ranked Lapua (#10, 8-20). KTP confirms their top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 22 victories and 6 lost games. Sarcevic has a very solid season. In 28 games in Finland he scored 11.8ppg. He also has 3.4apg, FGP: 54.1% and 3PT: 45.9%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Daniel Coleman (206-F-85) of Kataja - 18 points and 10 rebounds
5. Charles Burgess (186-PG-84) of FoKoPo - 18 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Jordan Hasquet (206-F-85) of Namika Lahti - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Johnell Smith (180-PG-80) of Kataja - 17 points, 3 rebounds and 10 assists
8. Damon Williams (201-F-73) of Pyrinto - 20 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Demond Watt (200-F-89) of Korihait - 16 points and 9 rebounds
10. Marcus Relphorde (198-F-88) of Salon Vilpas - 30 points and 6 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)

Review of Korisliiga Round 3 of Semi-Finals - 3 days ago
Kataja Basket - Helsinki Seagulls 105-80 Kataja Basket cruised past Helsinki Seagulls to take 2-1 lead. The game was mostly controlled by Joensuun Kataja. Helsinki Seagulls managed to win third quarter 23-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Joensuun Kataja shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 53.8 percentage. The best player for the winners was American swingman Jarekious Bradley (196-90, college: SE Missouri St., agen...   [read more]
