Terrance
Motley
25-year old forward Terrance Motley (201-F-91) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for FSu and receives a Eurobasket.com D1 Player of the Week award for round 18.
He had a double-double of 28 points and 16 rebounds, while his team beat Hamar (6-10) 93-80. FSU is placed at 6th position in Icelandic D1. FSU is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 6-10 record. In the team's last game Motley had a remarkable 57.1% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be FSU's top player in his first season with the team. Sam Houston State University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Motley is league's best scorer averaging so far 33.4ppg. Motley is in league's top in rebounds (3rd best: 12.6rpg) and averages solid 1.2bpg,2.1spg and 53.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Chris Woods (195-F-89) of Hamar. He is American forward in his first season at Hamar. In the last game Woods recorded impressive double-double of 35 points and 19 rebounds. Bad luck as Hamar lost that game 80-93 to slightly higher-ranked FSU (6-10). This loss caused Hamar to drop to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 6-10 record. Woods is a newcomer at Hamar and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 27.3ppg (#3). He also registered 14.3 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Collin Pryor (200-F-90, agency: Mansfield and Associates) of league's second-best Fjolnir. Pryor scored 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a key player of Fjolnir, leading his team to a 117-80 easy win against the lower-ranked IA (#8, 4-12). Fjolnir is closer and closer to top of the standings. They will still need more victories. But 13-3 record is not that bad... Pryor has a great season in Iceland. After 15 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 12.5rpg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Tyrone Garland (185-G-92) of Breidablik - 30 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Aaron Moss (185-G) of Hottur - 22 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists
6. Ari Gylfason (186-PG-89) of FSU - 24 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Mirko Virijevic (201-F-81) of Hottur - 20 points and 15 rebounds
8. Birgir Petursson (205-C-86) of Valur - 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Urald King (198-F-90) of Valur - 18 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Austin Bracey (190-G-90) of Valur - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 7 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)
