Rinalds
Sirsnins
Ukrainian point guard Rinalds Sirsnins (186-PG-85) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's second-best Jekabpils and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 17.
The 27-year old playmaker had a double-double of 20 points and ten rebounds, while his team beat Valmiera (#1, 11-4) 83-70. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Jekabpils maintains the 2nd position in Latvian LBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Jekabpils will need more victories to improve their 9-7 record. In the team's last game Sirsnins had a remarkable six three-pointers out of 12 attempts. He turned to be Jekabpils' top player in his first season with the team. Rinalds Sirsnins averages this season 15.2ppg and 6.7apg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old forward Lauris Mizis (198-F-89) of Jelgava. Mizis impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 18 points and 14 rebounds. It was enough for Jelgava to edge the higher-ranked LU (#5, 7-8) by 2 points 89-87. Jelgava's 8th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 6-7 record. Mizis is a newcomer at Jelgava and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Earl Rowland (188-G-83) of VEF Riga (#6). Rowland showcased his all-around game by recording 17 points, six rebounds and ten assists (!!!) in the last round. He was a key player of VEF Riga, leading his team to a 100-69 easy win against the lower-ranked Liepaja (#9, 5-8). VEF Riga is closer and closer to the top of the standings. They will still need more victories. But 6-1 record is not that bad... Rowland has a very solid season. In 5 games in Latvia he scored 11.4ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Kristaps Dargais (198-G-90) of LU - 21 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Zanis Peiners (204-G-90) of LU - 33 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Sandis Silavs (195-G-88) of Jelgava - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Janis Timma (201-F-92) of Ventspils - 16 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Ronalds Zakis (207-F/C-87) of Ventspils - 10 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Dairis Bertans (192-SG-89) of VEF Riga - 10 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Greg Plater (185-G-89) of Liepaja - 21 points and 6 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)
