Travante
Williams
American Forward Travante Williams (197-F-93, agency: Duran International) had a great game in the last round for Tskaltubo, receiving a Eurobasket.com A League Player of the Week award for round 4.
The 23-year old player had a double-double of 48 points and 12 rebounds, while his team beat SEU Tbilisi (#6, 0-4), the league's bottom-ranked team 99-94. Tskaltubo is placed at 5th position in Georgian A League. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 3 games and recorded just one victory. In the team's last game Williams had a remarkable 62.5% from 2-point range. He turned to be Tskaltubo's top player in his first season with the team. Former Alaska-Fairbanks star has very solid stats this year. Williams is league's best scorer averaging so far 32.5ppg. Williams is in league's top in rebounds (6th best: 8.8rpg) and averages impressive 1.3bpg,4.0spg,55.0% FGP and 42.3% from behind 3-point line.

The second best player in last round's games was 26-year old American Jamal Wilson (195-PG-90) of SEU Tbilisi. Wilson had a very good evening with 41 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as SEU Tbilisi lost that game 94-99 to slightly higher-ranked Tskaltubo (#5, 1-3). This loss caused SEU Tbilisi to slide to the very bottom (6) position in the standings. 4 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Wilson is a newcomer at SEU Tbilisi, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 24.3ppg (#2). He also registered 5.3 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Tskaltubo's star - Uzbekistani center Dmitry Sviridov (212-C-85). Sviridov showcased his all-around game by recording 18 points, nineteen rebounds (!!!) and five assists in the last round. He was another key player of Tskaltubo, helping his team with a 99-94 win against SEU Tbilisi (#6, 0-4). Tskaltubo can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-3 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Sviridov he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Sviridov has individually a great season in Georgia. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 12.5rpg (#1 in league).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ryan Aaron (190-G-91) of BC Titebi - 16 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists
5. Deondre Ray (196-SF) of DELTA - 18 points and 8 rebounds
6. Eric Gaines (193-F-92) of SEU Tbilisi - 17 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Richard Matiashvili (207-C-89) of SEU Tbilisi - 11 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists
8. Peter Alexis (213-F/C-92) of Arena-76 - 12 points and 14 rebounds
9. Nate Drayton (203-F-91) of BC Titebi - 16 points and 9 rebounds
10. Christopher Gabriel (210-C-88) of Hyundai-TSU - 14 points, 13 rebounds and 3 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)
