Burnette's double-double lands him Player of the Week award - Mar 13, 2017

Tre Burnette
Guard Tre Burnette (196-G) had an amazing evening in the last round for Olimpi and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 21.
He had a double-double of 28 points and 13 rebounds, while his team beat Batumi (#7, 7-14) 83-74. Olimpi is placed at 6th position in Georgian league. Olimpi is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 7-13 record. In the team's last game Burnette had a remarkable 61.9% from 2-point range. He turned to be Olimpi's top player in his first season with the team. University of South Dakota graduate has very impressive stats this year. Burnette is in league's top in rebounds (4th best: 9.1rpg) and averages solid 2.6spg and 52.8% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Levan Patsatsia (198-SF-88) of top-ranked Dinamo Tbilisi. He is former international in his first season at Dinamo Tbilisi. In the last game Patsatsia recorded impressive 19 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course Dinamo Tbilisi cruised to a 90-78 relatively comfortable win over slightly lower-ranked Kutaisi (#2, 14-6). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Dinamo Tbilisi consolidated its place in the very top position of the standings. His team belongs to top of the standings with 20-1 record and is considered one of the main candidates for the league title. Patsatsia is a newcomer at Dinamo Tbilisi and despite he is not a team leader yet, every game he becomes more reliable player. Hopefully performances like the last one will happen more often.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Corey Allen (185-PG-92) of Mgzavrebi (#8). Allen scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds. He was a key player of Mgzavrebi, leading his team to a 77-65 win against the higher-ranked Sokhumi (#4, 9-12). Mgzavrebi can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 6-15 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Too bad for Allen he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Allen has individually a great season in Georgia. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.9ppg (best scorer). He also has 3.5spg and FGP: 63.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Dwayne Lathan (190-G-89) of Sokhumi - 21 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Kaheem Ransom (185-PG) of Mgzavrebi - 24 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Terik Bridgeman (198-G) of Cactus Tbilisi - 13 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Nikola Maravic (212-C-89) of Dinamo Tbilisi - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Igor Krivtsov (201-F-86) of Batumi - 19 points and 9 rebounds
9. Deonta Vaughn (185-G-86) of Dinamo Tbilisi - 22 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists
10. Thomas Spagnolo (201-F-91) of Rustavi - 18 points and 6 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)
