Damier Pitts
23-year old point guard Damier Pitts (177-PG-89) put on an amazing game in the last round for KFI and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 12.
He had the game-high 34 points adding eight rebounds and seven assists for KFI in his team's victory, helping them to crush Fjolnir (4-9) with 24-point margin 99-75. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on the top of the standings. KFI is placed at 10th position in Icelandic league. KFI is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 4-9 record. In the team's last game Pitts had a remarkable 63.6% from 2-point range. He turned to be KFI's top player in his first season with the team. Marshall University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Pitts is league's best scorer averaging so far 31.6ppg. Pitts is in league's top in assists (3rd best: 7.3apg). Worth to mention Pitts played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

Second best performed player last round was Aaron Broussard (195-F-90) of top-ranked Grindavik. He is American forward in his first season at Grindavik. In the last game Broussard recorded impressive 36 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Bad luck as Grindavik lost that game 98-106 to the lower-ranked Keflavik (#6, 7-5). Grindavik managed to keep the same 1st spot in the standings. His team has currently 9-3 record. Broussard is a newcomer at Grindavik and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 23.6ppg (#5). His other stats are also decent: 7.7rpg and 3.6apg.

Third place about best performers goes to forward George Valentine (203-F) of Tindastoll (#12). Valentine showcased his all-around game by recording 20 points, nineteen rebounds (!!!) and four assists in the last round. Despite Valentine's great performance Tindastoll lost 72-85 to the higher-ranked Skallagrimur (#7, 5-7). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Tindastoll can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 2-10 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Too bad for Valentine he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Valentine has individually a great season in Iceland. After 12 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 10.8rpg (4th best). He also has 2.1spg, 1.2bpg and FGP: 62.8%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Christopher Smith (204-PF-82) of Fjolnir - 24 points and 21 rebounds
5. Mirko Virijevic (201-F-81) of KFI - 26 points and 13 rebounds
6. Benjamin Smith (178-G-87) of Thor Thorl - 22 points, 7 rebounds and 12 assists
7. Haminn Quaintance (201-F-85) of Skallagrimur - 17 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists
8. George Valentine (203-F) of Tindastoll - 23 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Haminn Quaintance (201-F-85) of Skallagrimur - 20 points, 18 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Michael Craion (195-F-89) of Keflavik - 22 points, 10 rebounds and 5 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)

D1 Round 4 of Semi-Finals. Breidablik and Fjolnir force deciders - 2 days ago
Breidablik - Valur 75-72 Breidablik held off Valur to force the decisive fifth game in the series. It looked good early as Valur took a 1-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Breidablik had a 22-16 second period charge getting the lead and Valur was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 72-75. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Tyrone Garland (185-92, college: La Salle) who helped to win the game recording 35 points (!!!) and guard...   [read more]

Haukur Palsson selected the top Icelandic playing abroad in last week's games - 3 days ago
We bring you last week's top performances from Icelandic who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level. This week's number one is an international small forward Haukur Palsson (197-92). He could not help SPO Rouen (10-13) in their last game. Despite Palsson's very good performance SPO Rouen was badly defeated 94-78 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#5) ADA Blois.    [read more]
