Matthias
Sigurdarson
22-year old point guard Matthias Sigurdarson (180-PG-94) had a great game in the last round for IR and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 19.
He got a double-double of 28 points and 12 assists, while his team crushed Thor AK (9-10) with 22-point margin 100-78. IR is placed at 7th position in Icelandic league. IR 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 9-10 record. In the team's last game Sigurdarson had a remarkable 58.3% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 9 attempts. He turned to be IR's top player in his first season with the team. Columbus State University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Sigurdarson is in league's top in assists (8th best: 5.1apg).

Second best performed player last round was Darrel Lewis (192-G-76) of Thor AK. He is naturalized American guard in his first season at Thor AK. In the last game Lewis recorded impressive double-double of 25 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Thor AK lost that game 78-100 to slightly higher-ranked IR (9-10). This loss caused Thor AK to drop to 8th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 9-10 record. Lewis is a newcomer at Thor AK and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward P.J. Alawoya (203-F-88, agency: Inception Sports) of league's leader KR. Alawoya scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a key player of KR, leading his team to a 81-80 win against the lower-ranked Njardvik (#9, 9-10). KR confirms their top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 15 victories and 4 lost games. Alawoya has a very solid season. In 4 games in Iceland he scored 19.0ppg. Alawoya attended one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Flenard Whitfield (200-F-90) of Skallagrimur - 27 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Tobin Carberry (193-G-91) of Thor Thorl - 24 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Quincy Hankins-Cole (203-F-90) of IR - 30 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Hordur Vilhjalmsson (194-G-88) of Keflavik - 24 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Lewis Clinch (191-G-87) of Grindavik - 34 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Pavel Ermolinskij (202-G-87) of KR - 14 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists
10. Olafur Olafsson (194-G-90) of Grindavik - 22 points, 6 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)
