Apsitis' double-double lands him Player of the Week award - Nov 12, 2012

Karlis
Apsitis
20-year old forward Karlis Apsitis (200-F-92) had a great game in the last round for Turiba and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9.
He had a double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds, while his team outclassed Jelgava (#6, 3-4) with 27-point margin 103-76. Turiba is placed at 9th position in Latvian league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 5 games and recorded just two victories. In the team's last game Apsitis had a remarkable 57.1% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Turiba's top player in his first season with the team. Apsitis has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (4th best: 16.3ppg) and averages solid 57.7% FGP and 42.9% from behind 3-point line.

Second best performed player last round was Davis Geks (190-G-95) of U18. He is a guard in his first season at U18. In the last game Geks recorded impressive 30 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. It was enough for U18 to edge the higher-ranked Valmiera (#2, 5-2) in overtime by 4 points 84-80. Despite this victory they still are the lowest ranked team. 4 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory U18 managed to get this year. Geks is a newcomer at U18 and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Artjoms Butjankovs (205-F/C-91, agency: FCM) of league's second-best Valmiera. Butjankovs scored 16 points and grabbed fifteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Butjankovs' great performance Valmiera lost 80-84in overtime to the lower-ranked U18 (#11, 1-4). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Valmiera needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 5 victories and 2 lost games. Butjankovs has a great season in Latvia. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.4rpg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Aaron Brackett (204-C-90) of Jelgava - 16 points and 11 rebounds
5. Matiss Rudmiezis (190-F-91) of Turiba - 23 points and 4 rebounds
6. Maris Gulbis (202-F-85) of Barons kvartals - 34 points and 4 rebounds
7. Folarin Campbell (192-G-86) of Ventspils - 17 points and 3 rebounds
8. Andzejs Pasecniks (211-C-95) of U18 - 20 points and 7 rebounds
9. Mikus Sokolovs (195-G-89) of Turiba - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Roberts Mednis (204-C-89) of Jurmala - 19 points and 5 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)
