Best players of Latvian LBL round 8 - Nov 10, 2012


POSTED BY:

Portuguese Maris Gulbis (202-F-85, agency: Players Group) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Barons kvartals and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 8.
The 27-year old forward had the game-high 32 points adding eight rebounds and three assists for Barons kvartals in his team's victory, helping them to edge out Turiba (#10, 1-5) 89-87. Barons kvartals is placed at 8th position in Latvian LBL. Barons kvartals is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 2-4 record. Gulbis turned to be Barons kvartals' top player in his first season with the team. Gulbis has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 20.2ppg. Gulbis is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 6.5rpg) and averages solid 51.7% from behind 3-point line.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was young forward Janis Berzins (202-F-93, agency: Players Group) of second-ranked Valmiera. Berzins impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds. Of course he lead Valmiera to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Jekabpils (#9, 2-5) 96-55. This victory allowed Valmiera to move up to second position in the standings. His team lost just one game this season, while they won 5 matches. Berzins is a newcomer at Valmiera and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 14.2ppg (#6). He also registered 8.2 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was Lauris Mizis (198-F-89) of Jelgava (#5). Mizis scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a key player of Jelgava, leading his team to a 81-78 win against Liepaja (3-3). Jelgava needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 3 victories and 3 lost games. Mizis has a great season in Latvia. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.3rpg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Mikus Sokolovs (195-G-89) of Turiba - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Zanis Peiners (204-G-90) of LU - 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Janis Kaufmanis (186-G-89) of Valmiera - 21 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Roberts Mednis (204-C-89) of Jurmala - 16 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Viktors Iljins (212-C-91) of Valmiera - 17 points and 7 rebounds
9. Arturs Duselis (201-F-89) of Jelgava - 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Ernestas Ezerskis (187-PG-87) of Liepaja - 14 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists

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)

Center Roberts Mednis (205-C-89) had an amazing evening in the last round for Gulbenes Buki (they play in Places 1-1), receiving a Eurobasket.com LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 6 (Second Stage). The 27-year old player was the main contributor (30 points, eight rebounds and four assists) to as his team Gulbenes Buki maintains the 10th position in Latvian LBL2.
