Finnish Korisliiga round 27 best performance: Monyea Pratt - Feb 3, 2017

Monyea Pratt
American Monyea Pratt (196-SF-85, agency: Court Side) put on an amazing game in the last round for KTP Basket, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 27.
The 31-year old player was the main contributor (29 points, four rebounds and nine assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush Pyrinto (9-16) with 20-point margin 92-72. KTP Basket is placed at 8th position in Finnish Korisliiga. KTP Basket is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 9-16 record. In the team's last game Pratt had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 8 attempts. He turned to be KTP Basket's top player in his first season with the team. Former Stillman College star has very solid stats this year. Pratt is in league's top in rebounds (4th best: 8.8rpg), assists (3rd best: 7.0apg) and averages impressive 2.3spg and 60.0% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was another KTP Basket's star - 34-year old Jamaican Sherman Gay (201-F/C-82). Gay had a very good evening with 22 points and 9 rebounds. Of course together with Pratt he helped KTP Basket with another comfortable win outscoring Pyrinto (9-16) 92-72. This victory allowed KTP Basket to move up to 8th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 9-16 record. Gay is a newcomer at KTP Basket, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.2ppg (#2). He also registered 6.8 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was Senegalese forward Papa Dia (208-F-87) of BC Nokia (#7). Dia scored 22 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of BC Nokia, leading his team to a 78-76 win against slightly higher-ranked Kouvot (#6, 10-13). The chances of BC Nokia ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 15 games, recording just ten victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Dia could help BC Nokia to bring them higher in the standings. Dia has a very solid season. In 21 games in Finland he scored 15.6ppg. He also has 7.6rpg and FGP: 52.9%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Austin Hollins (195-F/G-91) of Kauhajoki - 19 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Sefton Barrett (196-SF-83) of BC Nokia - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Daniel Bailey (196-G-90) of KTP Basket - 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Daniel Mullings (188-G-91) of Kataja Basket - 15 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Brandon Edwards (198-F-91) of Salon Vilpas - 13 points and 7 rebounds
9. Marcus Van (201-F/C-87) of Korihait - 6 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Tate Unruh (193-G-90) of Kauhajoki - 15 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is chosen 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)
