Jamal Jones claims Finnish Korisliiga weekly honour - Feb 24, 2017

Jamal Jones
American Jamal Jones (203-G-93, agency: Stealth Sport) had an amazing evening in the last round for Lapua and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 31.
The 23-year old guard had the game-high 29 points adding six rebounds for Lapua in his team's victory, helping them to beat Pyrinto (#9, 10-19) 91-82. Lapua maintains the 5th position in Finnish Korisliiga. Lapua is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 15-13 record. In the team's last game Jones had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 9 attempts. He turned to be Lapua's top player in his first season with the team. Texas A&M University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Jones is league's best scorer averaging so far 22.5ppg. Jones is in league's top in and averages solid 51.7% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 29-year old Senegalese forward Papa Dia (208-F-87) of BC Nokia. Dia impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds. It was enough for BC Nokia to edge the higher-ranked Salon Vilpas (#2, 20-8) by 1 point 98-97. BC Nokia's 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 12-16 record. Dia is a newcomer at BC Nokia and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Monyea Pratt (196-SF-85, agency: Court Side) of KTP-Basket (#8). Pratt showcased his all-around game by recording 13 points, twelve rebounds (!!!) and nine assists in the last round. He was a key player of KTP Basket, leading his team to an 88-80 win against the higher-ranked Helsinki Seagulls (#1, 20-7). The chances of KTP Basket not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 18 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Pratt could try to bring KTP Basket's a little bit higher in the standings. Pratt has individually a great season in Finland. After 28 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 9.1rpg (4th best) and assists with 7.1apg (2nd best). He also has 2.3spg and FGP: 59.9%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Dom Morris (201-F-90) of Lapua - 19 points and 6 rebounds
5. Mikko Koivisto (194-SG-87) of Salon Vilpas - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Austin Hollins (195-F/G-91) of Kauhajoki - 24 points and 7 rebounds
7. Eldar Skamo (198-F-86) of BC Nokia - 15 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Damon Williams (201-F-73) of Lapua - 16 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Antwan Scott (188-G-92) of KTP Basket - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Mario Edwards (191-G-88) of Lapua - 18 points, 6 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)
