Latvian LSBL round 26 best performance: Lina Lisnere - Mar 4, 2012


POSTED BY:

Lina Lisnere
Power forward Lina Lisnere (192-F/C-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for RTU-Merks, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 26.
The 25-year old player was the main contributor (15 points, eight rebounds and four assists) to her team's victory, helping them to outclass LU (#7, 5-18) with 48-point margin 110-62. RTU-Merks maintains the 3rd position in Latvian LSBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. RTU-Merks will need more victories to improve their 16-7 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Lisnere as usually she does not deliver so high stats. Lina Lisnere averages this season 11.0ppg and 7.4rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was young Paula Tomsone (193-C-94) of TTT Juniores. Tomsone had a very good evening with a double-double of 14 points and 15 rebounds. Of course she lead TTT Juniores to another comfortable win 83-67 over slightly lower-ranked DU (#6, 9-14) being unquestionably team leader. TTT Juniores' 5th position in the standings has not changed. Her team lost some distance to top teams. But 11-11 record is not bad and everything may still change. Tomsone is a newcomer at TTT Juniores 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.

Third on the list of top players last round was another TTT Juniores' star - center Ruta Veidere (188-C-94). Veidere scored 22 points and grabbed ten rebounds. She was another key player of TTT Juniores, helping her team with a 83-67 easy win against slightly lower-ranked DU (#6, 9-14). TTT Juniores needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 11 victories and 11 lost games. Veidere has a great season in Latvia. After 19 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.0rpg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Katrina Epnere (179-PG-93) of TTT Juniores - 7 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists
5. Laura Audere (180-F-84) of RTU-Merks - 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Zane Alilujeva (185-C-87) of Liepajas - 18 points and 9 rebounds
7. Anda Eibele (170-G-84) of Cesis - 25 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Ieva Malkevica (175-F-87) of RTU-Merks - 19 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Olga Kazakevica (165-G-90) of DU - 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Signe Langenfelde (177-G-88) of RTU-Merks - 14 points, 2 rebounds and 7 assists

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)
