Marcus Van
27-year old power forward Marcus Van (201-F/C-85) had a great game in the last round for Njardvik and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 19.
He had a double-double of 25 points and 21 rebounds, while his team crushed Fjolnir (#12, 4-15) with 25-point margin 100-75. Njardvik maintains the 7th position in Icelandic league. Njardvik 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 10-9 record. In the team's last game Van had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range. He turned to be Njardvik's top player in his first season with the team.

In the last game Smith recorded impressive double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Fjolnir lost that game 75-100 to the higher-ranked Njardvik (#7, 10-9). Fjolnir are still at the very bottom. 15 lost games are too many comparing to just four victories Fjolnir managed to get this year. Smith is a newcomer at Fjolnir and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 25.0ppg (#3). He also registered 11.8 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to center Sigurdur Thorsteinsson (204-C-88) of league's leader Grindavik. Thorsteinsson showcased his all-around game by recording 13 points, eleven rebounds (!!!) and five assists in the last round. He was a key player of Grindavik, leading his team to a 100-87 easy win against the lower-ranked KR (#6, 10-9). Grindavik confirms their top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 15 victories and 4 lost games. Thorsteinsson has a very solid season. In 19 games in Iceland he scored 13.8ppg. He also has 7.4rpg, 1.3bpg and FGP: 59.9%.

10. David Jackson (201-F-88) of Thor Thorl - 30 points and 5 rebounds

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)
