27-year old guard Spyros Magounis (200-G-85, agency: FCM) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Panelefsiniakos and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 18. He had a double-double of 21 points and 14 rebounds, while his team beat AGOR (#5, 11-7) 90-80. Panelefsiniakos maintains the 14th position in Greek league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked at the very bottom. They already lost 14 games and recorded just four victories. It's Magounis' second year at Panelefsiniakos and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Spyros Magounis averages this season 10.9ppg.
Second best performed player last round was Zoran Vrkic (200-G-87) of Ikaros. He is Croatian guard in his first season at Ikaros. In the last game Vrkic recorded impressive 19 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. It was enough for Ikaros to edge the lower-ranked KAOD (#13, 5-13) by 6 points 80-74. Ikaros' 8th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 7-11 record. Vrkic is a newcomer at Ikaros and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.
Third place about best performers goes to forward Kostas Tsartsaris (209-F-79) of league's second-best Panathinaikos. Tsartsaris scored 20 points. He was a key player of Panathinaikos, leading his team to a 87-62 easy win against the lower-ranked Ilysiakos (#10, 5-13). Panathinaikos is closer and closer to the top of the standings. They will still need more victories. But 15-3 record is not that bad... Tsartsaris has a very solid season. In 17 games in Greece he scored 6.6ppg. He also has 4.6rpg and FGP: 74.0%.

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)
