Icelandic Express L. round 10 best performance: Sammy Zeglinski - Dec 15, 2012

American point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-PG-88) had a very impressive game in the last round for top-ranked Grindavik, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 10.
The 24-year old player got a double-double of 38 points and 11 assists, while his team outclassed Fjolnir (#8, 4-6) with 37-point margin 122-85. It allowed Grindavik to consolidate first place in the Icelandic Express L.. Grindavik have a solid 8-2 record. In the team's last game Zeglinski had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range and got eight three-pointers out of 14 attempts. He turned to be Grindavik's top player in his first season with the team. Former The University of Virginia star has very solid stats this year. Zeglinski is in league's top in points (4th best: 23.9ppg), assists (3rd best: 7.5apg) and averages impressive 51.3% FGP and 43.2% from behind 3-point line.

The second best player in last round's games was -year old American George Valentine (203-F) of Tindastoll. Valentine had a very good evening with a double-double of 26 points and 14 rebounds. It was enough for Tindastoll to edge slightly higher-ranked IR (#10, 3-7) 96-90. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. But Tindastoll left the very bottom place moving slightly to 11th position. 7 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories Tindastoll managed to get this year. Valentine is a newcomer at Tindastoll, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Asim McQueen (203-F-88, agency: Pro One Sports) of Snaefell (#3). McQueen scored 22 points and grabbed fifteen rebounds (!!!). Despite McQueen's great performance Snaefell lost 92-97 to #2 ranked Thor Thorl. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing Snaefell needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 7 victories and 3 lost games. McQueen has a great season in Iceland. After 10 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 10.0rpg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Brynjar Bjornsson (191-G-88) of KR - 35 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists
5. Darrel Lewis (192-G-76) of Keflavik - 20 points and 14 rebounds
6. Marcus Van (201-F/C-85) of Njardvik - 16 points and 15 rebounds
7. Haminn Quaintance (201-F-85) of Skallagrimur - 24 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Eric Palm (188-G-87) of IR - 26 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Nigel Moore (195-F/G-81) of Njardvik - 23 points and 10 rebounds
10. Throstur Johannsson (198-F-89) of Tindastoll - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists

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)
