Zach Stahl claims Finnish 1st Division weekly honour - Feb 28, 2017

Zach Stahl
American Zach Stahl (196-G, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) had a very impressive game in the last round for Oulun NMKY and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com 1st Division Player of the Week award for round 20.
The guard had a double-double of 18 points and eleven rebounds, while his team beat FoKoPo (#8, 8-16) 90-76. Oulun NMKY is placed at 4th position in their group in Finnish 1st Division. Oulun NMKY 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 12-10 record. In the team's last game Stahl had a remarkable 53.3% from 2-point range. He turned to be Oulun NMKY's top player in his first season with the team. Northeastern University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Stahl is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 11.2rpg) and averages solid 50.7% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was young swingman Teemu Knihtinen (195-G/F-98) of Korikouvot. Knihtinen impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 24 points and 12 rebounds. Of course he led Korikouvot to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Karkkila (#10, 6-16) 107-87. Korikouvot's 4th position in Division B has not changed. His team's 15-7 record is not bad at all. Knihtinen is one of the most experienced players at Korikouvot and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was Cameroonian Arsene Towa (191-F-81) of Jarvenpaa (#7). Towa showcased his all-around game by recording 25 points, twenty three rebounds (!!!) and five assists in the last round. He was a key player of Jarvenpaa, leading his team to a 76-63 easy win against slightly higher-ranked Jyvaskyla BA (#5, 12-11). The chances of Jarvenpaa not to end season at such low position in Division A, however are less than slim as they have already lost 15 games, recording just eight victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Towa could try to bring Jarvenpaa's a little bit higher in the standings. Towa has individually a great season in Finland. After 23 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 12.0rpg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Riku Laine (197-F-97) of PeU-Basket - 25 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Sean Harris (201-F) of Ura Basket - 19 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Demondre Harvey (201-F-93) of Oulun NMKY - 19 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Pyry Rainamaa (194-G-90) of PuHu Juniorit - 18 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Rashad Smith (201-G-93) of Lahti - 30 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Mikael Sandberg (210-C-91) of TuNMKY - 20 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists
10. Reginald Bratton (193-G/F-86) of Namika Lr - 32 points, 9 rebounds and 2 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)
