Christopher
Anderson
American Christopher Anderson (170-PG-92) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league's second-best Hyundai-TSU and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com A League Player of the Week award for round 8.
The 24-year old playmaker had the game-high 24 points adding five rebounds and six assists for Hyundai-TSU in his team's victory, helping them to beat BC Titebi (#4, 4-4) 84-75. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Hyundai-TSU maintains the 2nd position in Georgian A League. They would have been even better if they did not have these two lost games earlier in Regular Season. Hyundai-TSU will need more victories to improve their 5-2 record. In the team's last game Anderson had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range. He turned to be Hyundai-TSU's top player in his first season with the team. University of San Diego graduate has very impressive stats this year. Anderson is in league's top in assists (2nd best: 7.9apg) and averages solid 3.1spg and 57.1% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old American forward Travante Williams (197-F-93, agency: Duran International) of Tskaltubo. Williams impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 29 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Tskaltubo lost that game 67-75 to the higher-ranked DELTA (#1, 5-2). This loss caused Tskaltubo to drop to 5th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 4-4 record is not bad and everything may still change. Williams is a newcomer at Tskaltubo and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 32.3ppg (#1). He also registered 10.3 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was American Laron Griffin (205-C-89) of top-ranked DELTA. Griffin scored 15 points and grabbed fifteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of DELTA, leading his team to a 75-67 win against the lower-ranked Tskaltubo (#5, 4-4). DELTA confirms their top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 5 victories and 2 lost games. Griffin has a great season in Georgia. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 9.4rpg (5th best). He also has 2.1bpg and FGP: 52.5%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. George Korsantia (203-F/C-98) of Hyundai-TSU - 13 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Tato Chachibaia (201-F-90) of Arena-76 - 15 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Armani Flannigan (203-F-92) of BC Titebi - 20 points and 12 rebounds
7. Rodnerius Lewis (193-G-93) of Arena-76 - 15 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Deondre Ray (196-SF) of DELTA - 21 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Ryan Aaron (190-G-91) of BC Titebi - 15 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Christopher Gabriel (210-C-88) of Hyundai-TSU - 22 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)
