Flenard
Whitfield
American Flenard Whitfield (200-F-90) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Skallagrimur and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 18.
The 26-year old forward had a double-double of 41 points and seventeen rebounds, while his team edged out Snaefell (#12, 0-18), the league's bottom-ranked team 122-119. The game was not the highest importance and did not have significant influence on top of the standings. Skallagrimur maintains the 10th position in Icelandic Dominos League. Skallagrimur is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 7-11 record. In the team's last game Whitfield had a remarkable 52.2% from 2-point range. He turned to be Skallagrimur's top player in his first season with the team. Western Michigan University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Whitfield is in league's top in points (3rd best: 28.8ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 15.5rpg) and averages solid 1.2bpg and 54.6% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 26-year old American forward Amin Stevens (203-F-90) of Keflavik. Stevens impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 36 points and 16 rebounds. Of course Keflavik cruised to a 92-85 relatively comfortable win over slightly higher-ranked Grindavik (#5, 10-8). This victory allowed Keflavik to move up to 6th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 9-9 record is not bad and everything may still change. Stevens is a newcomer at Keflavik and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 30.3ppg (#1). He also registered 15.6 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was American Christian Covile (193-G-93) of Snaefell (#12). Covile got into 30-points club by scoring 48 points in the last round. He went also for sixteen rebounds and five assists. Despite Covile's great performance Snaefell lost 119-122 to slightly higher-ranked Skallagrimur (#10, 7-11). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Snaefell can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 18 games. Too bad for Covile he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Covile has a very solid season. In 4 games in Iceland he scored 24.5ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Eyjolfur Halldorsson (194-F/G-98) of Skallagrimur - 27 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists
5. Petur Birgisson (185-G-96) of Tindastoll - 21 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Tobin Carberry (193-G-91) of Thor Thorl - 31 points, 16 rebounds and 2 assists
7. P.J. Alawoya (203-F-88) of KR - 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Antonio Hester (198-F-90) of Tindastoll - 22 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Olafur Olafsson (194-G-90) of Grindavik - 27 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Johann Olafsson (193-F/G-86) of Njardvik - 18 points, 10 rebounds and 4 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)
