Shannon
McCallum
American guard Shannon McCallum (177-G-87) had a great game in the last round for KR, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 19.
The 25-year old player was the main contributor (44 points, eight rebounds and eight assists) to her team's victory, helping them to crush Njardvik (#6, 5-14) with 16-point margin 84-68. KR maintains the 4th position in Icelandic Express L.. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. KR will need more victories to improve their 11-8 record. In the team's last game McCallum had a remarkable 68.8% from 2-point range. She just recently signed at KR, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Shannon McCallum averages just after three games 36.3ppg, 13.0rpg and 5.0apg.

The second best player in last round's games was 25-year old American Jaleesa Butler (185-G-87) of Valur. Butler had a very good evening with a double-double of 21 points and 21 rebounds. Of course she lead Valur to another comfortable win 80-65 over the lower-ranked Grindavik (#7, 5-14) being unquestionably team leader. Valur's 3rd position in the standings has not changed. Her team's 12-7 record is not bad at all. Butler is one of the most experienced players at Valur and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American Lele Hardy (182-SF-88, agency: Merit Sports) of Njardvik (#6). Hardy got into 30-points club by scoring 33 points in the last round. She went also for eighteen rebounds . Despite Hardy's great performance Njardvik lost 68-84 to slightly higher-ranked KR (#4, 11-8). But her team cannot count on just a single shooter as she also needs help of the other teammates. Njardvik can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 5-14 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Hardy she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Hardy has individually a great season in Iceland. After 19 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 29.4ppg (2nd best), rebounds with 18.9rpg (#1 in league) and assists with 4.4apg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Britney Jones (172-G-87) of Fjolnir - 29 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists
5. Sigrun Amundadottir (181-C/F-88) of KR - 23 points, 15 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Siarre Evans (178-G/F-88) of Haukar - 20 points, 18 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Kristrun Sigurjonsdottir (176-F-85) of Valur - 29 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Jessica Jenkins (172-G-90) of Keflavik - 31 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Heidrun Harpa Rikhardsdottir (173-F-92) of Fjolnir - 23 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Crystal Smith (168-G-84) of Grindavik - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists

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)

Grindavik keeps Kristinardottir for another season - 5 days ago
U.M.F. Grindavik (D1) re-signed 22-year old international guard Ingunn Kristinardottir (170-95). She has played there for the last two seasons.
