Raymond
Cowels
III
American Swingman Raymond Cowels III (193-F/G-90) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for top-ranked Helsinki Seagulls, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 33.
The 26-year old player was the main contributor (29 points, nine rebounds and two assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat BC Nokia (#6, 13-17) 86-78. It allowed Helsinki Seagulls to consolidate first place in the Finnish Korisliiga. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Helsinki Seagulls has a very solid 22-7 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. In the team's last game Cowels III had a remarkable five three-pointers out of 10 attempts. He turned to be Helsinki Seagulls' top player in his first season with the team. Raymond Cowels III averages this season 15.8ppg and 5.6rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 26-year old American Steven Pledger (193-G-90) of Kouvot. Pledger had a very good evening with 32 points and 7 rebounds. Bad luck as Kouvot lost that game 91-96 to the higher-ranked Kataja Basket (#4, 19-8). Kouvot managed to keep the same 7th spot in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 12-17 record. Pledger is a newcomer at Kouvot, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 19.6ppg (#4). He also registered 5.2 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Devonne Giles (203-F-83) of Kauhajoki (#3). Giles scored 22 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Kauhajoki, leading his team to a 103-90 easy win against the lower-ranked KTP Basket (#8, 11-20). Kauhajoki needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 20 victories and 11 lost games. Giles has a very solid season. In 8 games in Finland he scored 9.9ppg. He also has 5.4rpg and FGP: 58.2%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jarekious Bradley (196-G/F-90) of Kataja Basket - 25 points and 6 rebounds
5. Austin Hollins (195-F/G-91) of Kauhajoki - 27 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Jamal Jones (203-G-93) of Lapua - 28 points and 7 rebounds
7. Vesa Makalainen (200-SF-86) of Kataja Basket - 23 points and 4 rebounds
8. Al'Lonzo Coleman (201-F-89) of Salon Vilpas - 18 points and 10 rebounds
9. Antwan Scott (188-G-92) of KTP Basket - 27 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Daniel Bailey (196-G-90) of KTP Basket - 26 points, 3 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)
