Talented Laura Cornelius (173-PG-96) had a great game in the last round for CTO and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9. The 16-year old playmaker had the game-high 28 points adding eight rebounds and six assists for CTO in her team's victory, helping them to beat Lekdetec.nl (#6, 2-7) 78-70. Thanks to this victory CTO moved-up to the 4th position in the Dutch Eredivisie. CTO is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 4-5 record. It's Cornelius' second year at CTO and it's hard to imagine this team without her. Cornelius has impressive league stats. She is in league's top in points (8th best: 12.4ppg) and assists (5th best: 3.8apg).
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old guard Corinne Manuputty (173-G-85) of Grasshoppers. Manuputty impressed basketball fans with 24 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course she lead Grasshoppers to another comfortable win 86-72 over slightly lower-ranked Den Helder (#5, 3-6) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Grasshoppers to move up to 3rd position in the standings. Her team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 4-5 record. Manuputty is well-known by Grasshoppers fans and she already established her position as one of team's most reliable players.
The third best performed player last round was international forward Jill Bettonvil (188-F-92) of Lekdetec.nl (#6). Bettonvil scored 15 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Bettonvil's great performance Lekdetec.nl lost 70-78 to slightly higher-ranked CTO (#4, 4-5). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. 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 9 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.2rpg (6th best).

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)
