Italian Nazionale A round 10 best performance: Riccardo Casagrande - Nov 19, 2012


POSTED BY:

Riccardo
Casagrande
Riccardo Casagrande (196-SF-88, agency: Two Points) had a very impressive game in the last round for Lucca, receiving a Eurobasket.com Nazionale A Player of the Week award for round 10.
The 24-year old player was the main contributor (17 points, seven rebounds) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Casalpusterlengo (#13, 3-6) 80-74. Lucca maintains the 7th position in Italian Nazionale A. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Lucca will need more victories to improve their 6-3 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Casagrande as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Riccardo Casagrande averages this season 7.6ppg.

The second best player in last round's games was 29-year old former international guard Riccardo Santolamazza (195-G-83) of Latina Basket. Santolamazza had a very good evening with a double-double of 25 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Latina Basket lost that game 55-62 to the higher-ranked Matera (#1, 8-2). This loss caused Latina Basket to drop to 16th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 3-7 record. Santolamazza is a newcomer at Latina Basket, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was forward Francesco Quaglia (206-F/C-88) of Reggio Calabr. (#19). Quaglia scored 22 points and grabbed seventeen rebounds (!!!). Despite Quaglia's great performance Reggio Calabr. lost 68-75 to slightly higher-ranked Perugia (#17, 3-7). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Reggio Calabr. can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-8 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Quaglia he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Quaglia has a very solid season. In 9 games in Italy he scored 9.7ppg. He also has 6.3rpg and FGP: 59.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Davide Reati (193-G-88) of Treviglio - 25 points and 7 rebounds
5. Luca Pignatti (195-F-86) of Mirandola - 17 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Roberto Prandin (188-G-86) of Casalpusterlengo - 24 points and 5 rebounds
7. Alessandro Piazza (174-PG-87) of Bologna - 22 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Daniele Casadei (199-F/G-81) of Firenze - 25 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Michele Benfatto (205-F/C-85) of Ferrara - 19 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Andrea Iannilli (207-C-84) of San Severo - 20 points and 6 rebounds

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)

Serie A2 newcomer Unieuro 2.015 Forli added to their roster 24-year old American guard Melvin Johnson (193-88kg-93, college: VCU).
