Raheem Appleby claims Finnish Korisliiga weekly honour - Mar 24, 2017

Raheem
Appleby
American Raheem Appleby (190-G-93) put on an amazing game in the last round for Kouvot and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 37.
The 23-year old guard had the game-high 22 points adding six rebounds and four assists for Kouvot in his team's victory, helping them to beat Kauhajoki (#4, 20-14) 96-91. Kouvot is placed at 6th position in Finnish Korisliiga. Kouvot 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 15-19 record. Appleby turned to be Kouvot's top player in his first season with the team. Louisiana Tech University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Appleby is in league's top in assists (7th best: 4.3apg) and averages solid 54.1% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old American guard Javier Duren (193-G-93) of BC Nokia. Duren impressed basketball fans with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists. Bad luck as BC Nokia was edged by slightly lower-ranked Pyrinto (#9, 13-21) 82-81. This loss caused BC Nokia to drop to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 15-19 record. Duren is one of the most experienced players at BC Nokia and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Tate Unruh (193-G-90, agency: Inception Sports) of Kauhajoki (#4). Unruh showcased his all-around game by recording 23 points, five rebounds and five assists in the last round. Despite Unruh's great performance Kauhajoki lost 91-96 to slightly lower-ranked Kouvot (#6, 15-19). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Kauhajoki needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 20 victories and 14 lost games. Unruh has a very solid season. In 24 games in Finland he scored 14.9ppg. He also has 4.2rpg, FGP: 63.0% and 3PT: 45.7%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Devonne Giles (203-F-83) of Kauhajoki - 19 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Antwan Scott (188-G-92) of KTP Basket - 23 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Monyea Pratt (196-SF-85) of KTP Basket - 20 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists
7. Kammeon Holsey (203-F-90) of Kauhajoki - 19 points and 9 rebounds
8. James Sinclair (190-G-93) of Kouvot - 23 points and 4 rebounds
9. Rion Brown (198-SG-91) of Kataja Basket - 17 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Tyrone Nelson (206-F-85) of Pyrinto - 11 points and 11 rebounds

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)
