He had the game-high 32 points adding four rebounds and nine assists for VEF Riga in his team's victory, helping them to edge out Valmiera (#1, 11-5) in overtime 107-105. VEF Riga is placed at 5th position in Latvian league. They are still close to the very top. VEF Riga would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 7-1 record. In the team's last game Rowland had a remarkable 54.5% from 2-point range and got five three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be VEF Riga's top player in his first season with the team. Earl Rowland averages this season 14.8ppg and 6.7apg.

Second best performed player last round was Janis Timma (201-F-92, agency: FCM) of Ventspils. He is international forward in his first season at Ventspils. In the last game Timma recorded impressive triple-double of 13 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Of course he lead Ventspils to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked U18 (#11, 1-9) 96-62. Ventspils' 3rd position in the standings has not changed. His team lost just one game this season, while they won 8 matches. Timma is a newcomer at Ventspils and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Lauris Mizis (198-F-89) of Jelgava (#7). Mizis scored 14 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Jelgava, leading his team to a 108-94 easy win against the lower-ranked Turiba (#10, 3-12). Jelgava needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 7 victories and 7 lost games. Mizis has a great season in Latvia. After 14 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.6rpg (2nd best). He also has FGP: 56.8% and 3PT: 43.2%.

10. Klavs Strazdins (192-F-93) of LU - 17 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists

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)
