Best players of Latvian LBL round 23 - Jan 24, 2013

Tyler Cain
American Tyler Cain (203-F-88) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league's leader Barons kvartals and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 23.
The 24-year old forward had a double-double of 22 points and sixteen rebounds, while his team beat LU (#8, 8-13) 76-63. It allowed Barons kvartals to jump to the first place in the Latvian LBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Barons kvartals has a very solid 12-7 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. Cain turned to be Barons kvartals' top player in his first season with the team. Tyler Cain averages this season 15.9ppg and 11.8rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 36-year old Polish center Michal Hlebowicki (204-C-76) of Jekabpils. Hlebowicki impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds. Of course he lead Jekabpils to another comfortable win 91-76 over the lower-ranked Jelgava (#6, 9-10) being unquestionably team leader. Jekabpils' 3rd position in the standings has not changed. His team's 12-8 record is not bad at all. Hlebowicki is a newcomer at Jekabpils and despite he is not a team leader yet, every game he becomes more reliable player. Hopefully performances like the last one will happen more often.

The third best performed player last round was Zanis Peiners (204-G-90, agency: Interperformances) of LU (#8). Peiners scored 26 points. Despite Peiners' great performance LU lost 64-74 to slightly lower-ranked Liepaja (#9, 7-13). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of LU not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 13 games, recording just eight victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Peiners could try to bring LU's a little bit higher in the standings. Peiners has individually a great season in Latvia. After 21 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.3ppg (2nd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. P.J. Hill jr. (182-PG-87) of Jekabpils - 24 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Salvis Metra (195-G/F-84) of Barons kvartals - 16 points and 10 rebounds
6. Arturs Bricis (196-SG-92) of Liepaja - 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Arnolds Helmanis (200-PF-92) of Liepaja - 10 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Ingus Jakovics (185-PG-93) of Liepaja - 19 points and 3 rebounds
9. Jurijs Aleksejevs (202-C-85) of Jekabpils - 8 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Kristaps Dargais (198-G-90) of LU - 14 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)
