29-year old guard Rachel Vanderwal (176-G-83) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for second-ranked UL Aughinish and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3.
She had the game-high 28 points adding four rebounds and three assists for UL Aughinish in her team's victory, helping them to outclass, the league's bottom-ranked team Ulster Rockets (#8, 0-2) with 47-point margin 77-30. UL Aughinish is placed at 2nd position in Irish Superleague. They maintain perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but UL Aughinish already had a very good start winning all 3 without losing a single one.

In the last game Clarke recorded impressive 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Of course she lead Killester to another comfortable win 60-41 over Liffey Celtics (0-3) being unquestionably team leader. The season is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot.

Their record at this point is 1 victories and 1 lost games. Waters has a great season in Ireland. After only 2 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 13.5rpg (#1 in league) and assists with 3.0apg (3rd best).

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)
