Third place about best performers goes to forward Meagan Hoffman (183-F-82) of DCU Mercy (#3). Hoffman scored 17 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). She was a key player of DCU Mercy, leading her team to a 78-65 easy win against the lower-ranked Singleton (#7, 4-9).

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
