Suotamo's double-double lands him 1st Division Player of the Week award - Feb 26, 2013

Joonas
Suotamo
26-year old power forward Joonas Suotamo (209-F/C-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Espoo Basket and receives a Eurobasket.com 1st Division Player of the Week award for round 23.
He had a double-double of 18 points and 16 rebounds, while his team beat JyWe (#8, 6-18) 95-84. Espoo Basket maintains the 7th position in Finnish 1st Division. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 17 games and recorded just seven victories. It's Suotamo's second year at Espoo Basket and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Joonas Suotamo averages this season 17.2ppg and 9.4rpg.

Second best performed player last round was Cory Abercrombie (201-PF-85) of Huima. He is American forward in his first season at Huima. In the last game Abercrombie recorded impressive double-double of 31 points and 17 rebounds. Bad luck as Huima lost that game 84-91 to slightly lower-ranked Pyrinto II (#7, 7-14). Huima managed to keep the same 6th spot in group A. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 8-12 record. Abercrombie is one of the most experienced players at Huima and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Carl Lindbom (206-F-91) of Pyrinto II (#7). Lindbom scored 29 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Pyrinto II, leading his team to a 91-84 win against slightly higher-ranked Huima (#6, 8-12). The chances of Pyrinto II not to end season at such low position in group A, however are less than slim as they have already lost 14 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Lindbom could try to bring Pyrinto II's a little bit higher in the standings. Lindbom has a very solid season. In 2 games in Finland he scored 31.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Nafis Ricks (188-G) of BC Jyvaskyla - 31 points and 12 rebounds
5. Rudolf Mua (201-F/C-80) of Kerava ET - 26 points and 10 rebounds
6. Eryk Thomas (200-C/F-85) of SayRi - 21 points and 11 rebounds
7. Jerrah Young (203-F-85) of Porvoon Tarmo - 18 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Joni Harjula (189-G-83) of Pyrinto II - 23 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists
9. Janne Kinnunen (180-PG-87) of KaU Koris - 22 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Marcus Capers (193-G-89) of ToPo - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 2 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)
