Kaheem
Ransom
Point guard Kaheem Ransom (185-PG) had a very impressive game in the last round for Mgzavrebi and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 15.
He had the game-high 27 points adding four rebounds and four assists for Mgzavrebi in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Batumi (#5, 6-9) with 39-point margin 99-60. Mgzavrebi maintains the 8th position in Georgian league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked at the very bottom. They already lost 13 games and recorded just two victories. In the team's last game Ransom had a remarkable 80.0% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Mgzavrebi and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Sam Houston State University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Ransom is league's best scorer averaging so far 23.0ppg. Ransom is in league's top in assists (3rd best: 5.5apg) and averages solid 58.3% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was John Florveus (211-C-90) of Cactus Tbilisi. He is American center in his first season at Cactus Tbilisi. In the last game Florveus recorded impressive double-double of 18 points and 18 rebounds. Bad luck as Cactus Tbilisi lost that game 66-81 to the higher-ranked Kutaisi (#2, 11-3). Cactus Tbilisi is still second from the bottom in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 6-9 record. Florveus is a newcomer at Cactus Tbilisi and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 15.1ppg (#7). He also registered 13.1 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to center Sergo Atuashvili (223-C-85) of Rustavi (#3). Atuashvili scored 18 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Atuashvili's great performance Rustavi lost 76-80 to #4 ranked Sokhumi. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing Rustavi needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 8 victories and 7 lost games. Atuashvili has a great season in Georgia. After 15 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 9.5rpg (5th best). He also has 1.5bpg and FGP: 50.7%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Corey Allen (185-PG-92) of Mgzavrebi - 13 points and 8 assists
5. Dragan Tubak (216-C-87) of Kutaisi - 19 points and 9 rebounds
6. Reggie Murphy (208-C-91) of Mgzavrebi - 15 points and 9 rebounds
7. Oleksandr Tishchenko (205-F/C-89) of Sokhumi - 17 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Dwayne Lathan (190-G-89) of Sokhumi - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Ilia Londaridze (205-C-89) of Dinamo Tbilisi - 15 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Darnell Taylor (193-G-91) of Mgzavrebi - 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 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)
