Elena
Reshetko
Russian Forward Elena Reshetko (184-F-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for second-ranked Catz, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 28.
The 30-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 20 rebounds, while her team beat Espoo Utd (#3, 17-10) in overtime 95-87. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Catz maintains the 2nd position in Finnish SM-sarja. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Catz will need more victories to improve their 19-8 record. Reshetko has many years of experience at Catz, through which she has constantly improved. Elena Reshetko averages this season 17.4ppg and 9.0rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 29-year old American Shenita Landry (188-F-87) of Espoo Utd. Landry had a very good evening with a double-double of 27 points and 16 rebounds. Bad luck as Espoo Utd lost that overtime game 87-95 to slightly higher-ranked Catz (#2, 19-8). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Espoo Utd still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. Her team's 17-10 record is not bad at all. Landry is a newcomer at Espoo Utd, but is already one of team's top players. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.9ppg (#3). She also registered 12.4 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Akilah Sims (178-F-94) of PeKa (#4). Sims scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds. She was a key player of PeKa, leading her team to a 100-61 easy win against the lower-ranked Huima (#9, 7-20). PeKa needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 15 victories and 12 lost games. Sims has a very solid season. In 21 games in Finland she scored 17.5ppg. She also has 9.7rpg and FGP: 57.1%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ny Hammonds (165-G-92) of Kouvot - 15 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Niina Laaksonen (185-F/C-85) of HyPo - 26 points and 2 rebounds
6. Chandrea Jones (177-SF-87) of Catz - 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Tierra Henderson (178-G-87) of Espoo Team - 30 points and 10 rebounds
8. Jacqueline Luna-Castro (188-F-93) of Kouvot - 21 points and 9 rebounds
9. Batabe Zempare (188-F-94) of Huima - 20 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Valencia McFarland (163-PG-91) of Catz - 19 points, 10 rebounds and 6 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)
