Martin Zeno
27-year old guard Martin Zeno (196-G-85) had a very impressive game in the last round for second-ranked Nilan Bisons and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 35.
He had a double-double of 30 points and 11 rebounds, while his team was edged out by Kataja (#3, 24-6) 74-72. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Nilan Bisons maintains the 2nd position in Finnish league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Nilan Bisons will need to avoid more loses keep or improve their 25-8 record. In the team's last game Zeno had a remarkable 55.6% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Nilan Bisons and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Texas Tech University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Zeno is in league's top in points (2nd best: 21.9ppg), assists (8th best: 4.3apg) and averages solid 54.1% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Chris Hester (192-G/F-79) of Kouvot. He is American swingman in his first season at Kouvot. In the last game Hester recorded impressive double-double of 17 points and 11 rebounds. Of course he lead Kouvot to another comfortable win outscoring the higher-ranked KTP (#1, 26-8) 83-63. Kouvot's 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 17-17 record is not bad and everything may still change. Hester is a newcomer at Kouvot and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Louis Johnson (206-F/C-86, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) of Namika Lahti (#11). Johnson scored 20 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Namika Lahti, leading his team to a 78-73 win against the higher-ranked Kauhajoki (#5, 21-13). Namika Lahti can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 8-25 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Johnson he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Johnson has individually a great season in Finland. After 32 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.1rpg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ryan McDade (201-F-80) of Nilan Bisons - 14 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Emmanuel Holloway (185-G-86) of Namika Lahti - 21 points and 9 rebounds
6. Samuli Vanttaja (210-F/C-91) of Kouvot - 9 points and 17 rebounds
7. Haminn Quaintance (201-F-85) of Kauhajoki - 16 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Andrais Thornton (203-F-85) of FoKoPo - 12 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Alain Laroche (198-F-83) of Korihait - 20 points and 10 rebounds
10. Giordan Watson (178-PG-85) of Kauhajoki - 20 points and 8 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)
