International forward Leonie Kooij (187-F-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for top-ranked Binnenland, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 8. The 26-year old player had a double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds, while her team beat Den Helder (#5, 3-6) 76-61. It allowed Binnenland to consolidate first place in the Dutch Eredivisie. Binnenland have a solid 8-1 record. In the team's last game Kooij had a remarkable three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. She turned to be Binnenland's top player in her first season with the team. Leonie Kooij has solid league stats. She is in league's top in points (6th best: 14.6ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 9.6rpg) and averages impressive 2.9spg.
The second best player in last round's games was another Binnenland's star - 24-year old American Addie Micir (182-G-88). Micir had a very good evening with 8 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists. Of course together with Kooij she helped Binnenland with another comfortable win 76-61 over the lower-ranked Den Helder (#5, 3-6) being unquestionably team leader. Of course Binnenland still keep the league's top spot. Her team lost just one game this season, while they won 8 matches. Micir is a newcomer at Binnenland, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was international forward Jill Bettonvil (188-F-92) of Lekdetec.nl (#6). Bettonvil scored 14 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). She was a key player of Lekdetec.nl, leading her team to a 75-52 easy win against the higher-ranked ProBuild Lions (#2, 6-3). Lekdetec.nl can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 2-7 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Too bad for Bettonvil she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Bettonvil has individually a great season in Holland. After only 7 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 6.1rpg (7th best).

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
