Best players of Latvian LBL round 14 - Dec 7, 2012

Talented Artjoms Butjankovs (205-F/C-91, agency: FCM) had a great game in the last round for league's leader Valmiera and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 14.
The 21-year old power forward had a double-double of 20 points and seventeen rebounds, while his team beat LU (#2, 7-5) 75-66. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Valmiera to consolidate first place in the Latvian LBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Valmiera has a very solid 9-3 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. It's Butjankovs' second year at Valmiera and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Butjankovs has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (3rd best: 8.7rpg) and averages solid 53.2% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old Portuguese forward Maris Gulbis (202-F-85, agency: Players Group) of Barons kvartals. Gulbis impressed basketball fans with 21 points and 8 rebounds. Of course he lead Barons kvartals to another comfortable win 83-66 over slightly lower-ranked Jelgava (#9, 4-7) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Barons kvartals to move up to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-6 record. Gulbis is a newcomer at Barons kvartals 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 22.7ppg (#1). He also registered 6.7 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was another Barons kvartals' star - Spanish Aigars Skele (192-F-92). Skele scored 17 points and grabbed six rebounds. He was another key player of Barons kvartals, helping his team with a 83-66 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Jelgava (#9, 4-7). The chances of Barons kvartals ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 6 games, recording just five victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Skele could help Barons kvartals to bring them higher in the standings. Skele has a very solid season. In 10 games in Latvia he scored 4.9ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Pavels Pastusena (220-C-90) of Liepaja - 11 points and 6 rebounds
5. Ingus Jakovics (185-PG-93) of Liepaja - 19 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Andris Justovics (200-F-89) of Jelgava - 22 points and 4 rebounds
7. Janis Berzins (202-F-93) of Valmiera - 14 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Kristaps Dargais (198-G-90) of LU - 13 points and 11 rebounds
9. Matiss Rudmiezis (190-F-91) of Turiba - 14 points and 4 rebounds
10. Artis Ate (191-G-89) of Liepaja - 7 points, 5 rebounds and 2 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)

Valmiera adds Valters to their roster - 55 minutes ago
Defending champion Valmiera/ORDO (LBL) added to their roster experienced 36-year old Latvian ex-international guard Kristaps Valters (190-78kg-81). He has played for the last two seasons at Turk Telekom in Turkish BSL league. In 6 games he recorded 4.2ppg, 1.0rpg and 2.2apg last season. Valters also played 2 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he averaged 3.0ppg, 1.5rpg and 1.0apg. The previous (14-15) season he played at Barons Riga. In 8 LBL games he had 12.0ppg, 2.5rpg and 4.5apg.

The most important game in the last round took place in Riga between third ranked Jekabpils (12-10) and seventh ranked Barons Riga (10-10) on Sunday night. Jekabpils were defeated by Barons Riga in a tough game on the road 66-71. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Jekabpils won fourth quarter 23-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Barons Riga made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. Great defens...   [read more]

American Martin Barrett (196-F/G) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Madona (they play in Places 13-21) and that's him to receive a Court Side LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 13 (Second Stage). The swingman had the game-high 36 points adding four rebounds and five assists for Madona in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Riga/Ridzene (#20, 1-10) with 41-point margin 114-73. The game was not the highest importance and did not have significant influen...   [read more]
