Annalisa Borroni (183-G-83) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Muggia and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com A2 Player of the Week award for round 23. The 29-year old guard had the game-high 39 points adding eight rebounds for Muggia in her team's victory, helping them to crush Udine (#7, 12-11) with 16-point margin 73-57. Muggia is placed at 9th position in Italian A2. Muggia is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 9-14 record. In the team's last game Borroni had a remarkable 58.8% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 7 attempts. It's her second year at Muggia and it's hard to imagine this team without her. Borroni has impressive league stats. She is in league's top in points (2nd best: 17.9ppg) and averages solid 2.1spg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old British center Dominique Allen (192-C-89) of Bologna. Allen impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Bologna lost that game 58-64 to the higher-ranked T. La Spezia (#2, 18-3). Bologna managed to keep the same 7th spot in South. Her team lost some distance to top teams. But 11-10 record is not bad and everything may still change. Allen is a newcomer at Bologna and it seems she did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.
The third best performed player last round was Latvian Liga Surkusa (194-C-91) of Broni (#8). Surkusa scored 16 points and grabbed sixteen rebounds (!!!). She was a key player of Broni, leading her team to a 67-58 win against the lower-ranked Cagliari V. (#12, 7-16). The chances of Broni ranking at the top of North, however are very questionable as they have already lost 12 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Surkusa could help Broni to bring them higher in the standings. Surkusa has a great season in Italy. After 23 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 9.3rpg (9th 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)
