Vernon Taylor claims Finnish 1st Division weekly honour - Feb 18, 2013

Vernon
Taylor
American Vernon Taylor (190-G-87) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's leader Porvoon Tarmo and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com 1st Division Player of the Week award for round 22.
The 25-year old guard had the game-high 36 points adding nine rebounds and five assists for Porvoon Tarmo in his team's victory, helping them to crush Pyrinto II (#7, 6-14) with 19-point margin 97-78. It allowed Porvoon Tarmo to consolidate first place in the Finnish 1st Division. Porvoon Tarmo have a solid 16-4 record. In the team's last game Taylor had a remarkable 78.6% from 2-point range. He turned to be Porvoon Tarmo's top player in his first season with the team. Troy University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Taylor is in league's top in points (4th best: 23.7ppg) and averages solid 2.2spg,58.9% FGP and 40.5% from behind 3-point line.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old American guard DeAndre Mays (188-G-87, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) of Huima. Mays impressed basketball fans with a triple-double of 31 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. Of course he lead Huima to another comfortable win 95-77 over slightly lower-ranked Ura Basket (#8, 6-14) being unquestionably team leader. Huima's 6th position in group A has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 8-11 record. Mays is a newcomer at Huima and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.7ppg (#6). His other stats are also decent: 6.7rpg and 4.1apg.

The third best performed player last round was another Huima's star - American Andre Stephens (202-F-87). Stephens scored 22 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was another key player of Huima, helping his team with a 95-77 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Ura Basket (#8, 6-14). The chances of Huima ranking at the top of group A, however are very questionable as they have already lost 11 games, recording just eight victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Stephens could help Huima to bring them higher in the standings. Stephens has a great season in Finland. After 18 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 11.9rpg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Michael King (201-F-74) of Kerava ET - 31 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Joonas Suotamo (209-F/C-86) of Espoo Basket - 22 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Arsene Towa (191-F-81) of Kerava ET - 16 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Antti Heiskanen (188-G-90) of Kerava ET - 33 points and 3 rebounds
8. Elias Kajander (196-F-80) of ToPo - 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Devin Ginty (188-G-89) of ToPo - 15 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Paul Harrison (203-C-89) of Ura Basket - 20 points, 10 rebounds and 5 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)
