Grasshoppers started part two of the Dutch league on the wrong foot. Facing their 'angstgegner' for the season so far they were down 0-5 before the crowd was in. Alltho they're handed lots of chances to put away the game very early the guests don't manage to pull away just yet. After Kinou Kanbier (175-F-95) hits a three for 9-10 the Rotterdam based team takes a lead to 9-17 after ten.
Ivo Boom gets T'd in the second quarter , but trailing already 10 points , the team gets a boost from the youngstars such as Deborah Vos and Fleur Kuijt who manage to fight themselves back into the game: 25-29 at the break.
In the second half Binnenland tries to get away but doesn't pull further away than 31-39. A few moments later the score is back to an exciting game: 42-46 capped by the second and third treys of Kinou Kanbier. The final stanza breaks the game open. Binnenland keeps on having difficulties with the hometeams swarming defense and while the game seemed to be going to a splendid closing, Binnenland held on and brought in the victory

21-year old swingman Britt Zappeij (185-G/F-95) had a great game in the last round for Den Helder and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 24. She had a double-double of 30 points and 14 rebounds, while her team outclassed, the league's bottom-ranked team Amazone (#8, 0-24) with 43-point margin 102-59. Den Helder maintains the 5th position in Dutch Eredivisie. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Den Helder will need more victories to improve their 13-9 record. In the team's last game Zappeij had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range. It was one of impressive evenings for her as usually she does not deliver so high stats. Britt Zappeij averages this season 7.6ppg and 5.7rpg.
Second best performed player last round was Danielle Pruijs (184-PF-97) of Amazone. She is a forward in her second season at Amazone. In the last game Pruijs recorded impressive double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Amazone lost that game 59-102 to the higher-ranked Den Helder (#5, 13-9). Amazone are still at the very bottom. 24 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Pruijs is well-known at Amazone and she already established her position as one of the team's leaders.
Third place about best performers goes to Irene Sanchez of league's second-best Grasshoppers. Sanchez showcased her all-around game by recording 14 points, five rebounds and five assists in the last round. She was a key player of Grasshoppers, leading her team to a 91-62 easy win against the lower-ranked Rotterdam (#7, 4-20). Grasshoppers needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 16 victories and 6 lost games. Sanchez has a very solid season. In 8 games in Holland she scored 6.1ppg.

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)
