Chris Woods
27-year old forward Chris Woods (195-F-89) had a great game in the last round for Hamar and receives a Eurobasket.com D1 Player of the Week award for round 24.
He had a double-double of 35 points and 24 rebounds, while his team edged out Valur (#3, 15-5) 98-96. Hamar maintains the 5th position in Icelandic D1. Hamar 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 10-11 record. Woods turned to be Hamar's top player in his first season with the team. Pfeiffer University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Woods is in league's top in points (2nd best: 27.7ppg) and averages solid 1.5bpg and 56.3% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Terrance Motley (201-F-91) of FSu. He is American forward in his first season at FSU. In the last game Motley recorded impressive 23 points and 9 rebounds. Bad luck as FSU lost that game 48-54 to the higher-ranked Breidablik (#4, 14-7). FSU is still second from the bottom in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 7-15 record. Motley is a newcomer at FSU and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 31.0ppg (#1). He also registered 12.8 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Urald King (198-F-90) of Valur (#3). King scored 20 points and grabbed seventeen rebounds (!!!). Despite King's great performance Valur lost 96-98 to slightly lower-ranked Hamar (#5, 10-11). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Valur needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 15 victories and 5 lost games. King has a great season in Iceland. After 14 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 21.5ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 11.5rpg (5th best). He also has 2.1spg, 2.4bpg and FGP: 56.0%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Derek Shouse (188-G-93) of IA - 19 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Aaron Moss (185-G) of Hottur - 15 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Illugi Audunsson (196-F-92) of Valur - 16 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Ragnar Albertsson (190-G-93) of Hottur - 23 points and 7 rebounds
8. Erlendur Stefansson (190-G-95) of Hamar - 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Sigmar Hakonarson (181-PG-92) of Hottur - 12 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Benedikt Blondal (188-G-93) of Valur - 12 points, 6 rebounds and 8 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)
