Italian A1 round 15 best performance: Sonja Kireta - Jan 28, 2013

Sonja Kireta
Croatian center Sonja Kireta (198-C-76) had a very impressive game in the last round for Parma, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 15.
The 36-year old player had a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds, while her team crushed Cagliari CUS (#10, 1-11) with 17-point margin 77-60. Thanks to this victory Parma moved-up to the 4th position in the Italian A1. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Parma will need more victories to improve their 9-3 record. Kireta turned to be Parma's top player in her first season with the team. Sonja Kireta has solid league stats. She is in league's top in points (8th best: 14.8ppg) and rebounds (6th best: 8.9rpg).

The second best player in last round's games was another Parma's star - 25-year old New Zealand Jillian Harmon (185-F-87). Harmon had a very good evening with a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds. Of course together with Kireta she helped Parma with another comfortable win 77-60 over the lower-ranked Cagliari CUS (#10, 1-11) being unquestionably team leader. Despite this victory Parma slide down in the standings to 4th position. Her team's 9-3 record is not bad at all. Harmon is a newcomer at Parma, but is already one of team's top players. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 15.2ppg (#7). She also registered 9.5 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was Spanish guard Lorena Infantes (171-PG-81, agency: Regeneracom Sports) of Orvieto (#9). Infantes showcased her all-around game by recording 19 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the last round. Despite Infantes' great performance Orvieto lost 66-68 to the higher-ranked Umbertide (#5, 8-4). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. Orvieto can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 3-10 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Infantes she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Infantes has individually a great season in Italy. After 13 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 2.9apg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jantel Lavender (190-C-88) of Familia Schio - 18 points and 12 rebounds
5. Courtney Willis (188-F/C-82) of Umbertide - 20 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Aishah Sutherland (187-F-90) of Orvieto - 12 points and 14 rebounds
7. Elin Eldebrink (174-G-88) of Cagliari CUS - 24 points and 6 rebounds
8. Megan Mahoney (183-F-83) of Taranto - 9 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Laura Macchi (188-F-79) of Familia Schio - 13 points and 3 rebounds
10. Jazmine Sepulveda (178-SG-85) of Chieti - 19 points and 5 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)

Vespignani
Sofia Vespignani joins Ecodent Mep Alpo Verona - 1 day ago

Ecodent Mep Alpo Verona (Serie A2) agreed terms with 20-year old point guard Sofia Vespignani (170-96). She played last season at Vassalli 2G Vigarano in the Serie A1. Serie A1 was a little too high level for her, where in 28 games she had just 1.7ppg. Serie A2 will be definitely a better match and she can see more playing time. The previous (14-15) season Vespignani played at La Magika Castel San Pietro. In 29 Serie A2 games she recorded 6.4ppg, 2.4rpg, 1.6apg and 2.1spg. Serie A2 will b...   [read more]
