Latvian LBL round 13 best performance: Oskars Virsis - Dec 3, 2012

Oskars
Virsis
Guard Oskars Virsis (192-G-89) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Jekabpils, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 13.
The 23-year old player was the main contributor (20 points, eight rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to outclass U18 (#11, 1-7) with 47-point margin 93-46. Jekabpils is placed at 4th position in Latvian LBL. Jekabpils is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 6-6 record. In the team's last game Virsis had a remarkable 87.5% from 2-point range. It was one of impressive evenings for him as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Oskars Virsis averages this season 7.4ppg.

The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old Roberts Mednis (204-C-89) of Jurmala. Mednis had a very good evening with a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds. Bad luck as Jurmala lost that game 63-78 to slightly higher-ranked Valmiera (#1, 8-3). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Jurmala still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 7-5 record is not bad at all. Mednis is a newcomer at Jurmala, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Jekabpils' star - American forward P.J. Hill jr. (182-F-87). Hill jr. showcased his all-around game by recording 21 points, five rebounds and nine assists in the last round. He was another key player of Jekabpils, helping his team with a 92-85 win against the lower-ranked Barons kvartals (#7, 4-6). Jekabpils needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 6 victories and 6 lost games. Hill jr. has a great season in Latvia. After 12 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.2ppg (3rd best) and assists with 3.9apg (2nd best). Hill jr. attended one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Maris Gulbis (202-F-85) of Barons kvartals - 29 points and 7 rebounds
5. Lauris Mizis (198-F-89) of Jelgava - 13 points and 11 rebounds
6. Janis Porzingis (201-F-82) of Valmiera - 17 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Salvis Metra (195-G/F-84) of Barons kvartals - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists
8. Janis Berzins (202-F-93) of Valmiera - 12 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Maris Ziedins (203-F/C-90) of Valmiera - 17 points and 10 rebounds
10. Todd O'Brien (213-C-89) of Jekabpils - 16 points and 10 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)

LBL2 Round 14 (Second Stage): Kekava hand first loss to Turiba - 12 hours ago
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss ofTuriba (17-1) on the court of second ranked Kekava on Tuesday night. Visitors were defeated by Kekava 86-77. It ended at the same time the 23-game winning streak of Turiba. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Forward Nauris Miezis (189-91) orchestrated the victory by scoring 40 points...   [read more]

The 26-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, eight rebounds and four assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush BK Ogre (#8, 8-13) with 18-point margin 97-79.
