Best players of Italian SerieA round 6 - Nov 6, 2012
follow us on
American Ricky Minard (196-F/G-82) had an amazing evening in the last round for SAIE3 BO and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 6. The 30-year old swingman had the game-high 35 points adding seven rebounds for SAIE3 BO in his team's victory, helping them to beat Angelico BI (#16, 1-5) 89-75. SAIE3 BO maintains the 5th position in Italian SerieA. They would have been even better if they did not have these two lost games earlier in Regular Season. SAIE3 BO will need more victories to improve their 4-2 record. In the team's last game Minard had a remarkable ten three-pointers out of 12 attempts. He turned to be SAIE3 BO's top player in his first season with the team. Ricky Minard averages this season 13.8ppg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 31-year old Finnish power forward Tuukka Kotti (205-PF-81) of Vanoli CR. Kotti impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds. Bad luck as Vanoli CR lost that game 67-75 to the higher-ranked Acea Virtus RM (#6, 4-2). This loss caused Vanoli CR to drop to 11th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 2-4 record. Kotti is a newcomer at Vanoli CR and despite he is not a team leader yet, every game he becomes more reliable player. Hopefully performances like the last one will happen more often.
The third best performed player last round was international forward Luigi Datome (203-F-87) of Acea Virtus RM (#6). Datome scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds. He was a key player of Acea Virtus RM, leading his team to a 75-67 win against the lower-ranked Vanoli CR (#11, 2-4). Acea Virtus RM needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 4 victories and 2 lost games. Datome has a great season in Italy. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.8ppg (3rd best). He also has FGP: 59.5% and 3PT: 56.5%.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Antywane Robinson (203-F-84) of Enel Brindisi - 21 points and 7 rebounds 5. Jeleel Akindele (216-C-83) of JuveCaserta - 9 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists 6. Beye Tabu-Eboma (184-SG-85) of Cantu - 9 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists 7. Achille Polonara (202-F-91) of Cimberio VA - 22 points and 7 rebounds 8. Bobby Brown (188-PG-84) of Montepaschi - 26 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists 9. Ronald Steele (187-PG-86) of Sutor MGR - 12 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists 10. Stevan Jelovac (208-F/C-89) of JuveCaserta - 15 points and 9 rebounds
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)
