Latvian LBL round 25 best performance: Edgars Krumins - Feb 5, 2013

Edgars
Krumins
Swingman Edgars Krumins (194-G/F-86) had a very impressive game in the last round for Jelgava, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 25.
The 26-year old player had a double-double of 28 points and 11 rebounds, while his team beat Turiba (#10, 7-15) 87-80. Jelgava maintains the 6th position in Latvian LBL. Jelgava 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 10-10 record. In the team's last game Krumins had a remarkable six three-pointers out of 11 attempts. He has many years of experience at Jelgava, through which he has constantly improved. Edgars Krumins averages this season 12.9ppg.

The second best player in last round's games was young Janis Berzins (202-F-93, agency: Players Group) of league's second-best Valmiera. Berzins had a very good evening with 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Of course Valmiera cruised to a 93-83 relatively comfortable win over the lower-ranked LU (#8, 8-14). This victory allowed Valmiera to move up to second position in the standings. His team's 13-8 record is not bad at all. Berzins is a newcomer at Valmiera, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 15.5ppg (#5). He also registered 7.2 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was guard Kristaps Dargais (198-G-90) of LU (#8). Dargais showcased his all-around game by recording 19 points, ten rebounds and seven assists in the last round. Despite Dargais' great performance LU lost 83-93 to the higher-ranked Valmiera (#2, 13-8). But his team cannot count on just a single player 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 14 games, recording just eight victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Dargais could try to bring LU's a little bit higher in the standings. Dargais has individually a great season in Latvia. After 22 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.3rpg (2nd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Guntis Sipolins (206-C-93) of Turiba - 14 points and 13 rebounds
5. Artis Ate (191-G-89) of Liepaja - 23 points and 5 rebounds
6. Andris Epners (198-F-92) of Barons kvartals - 21 points and 16 rebounds
7. Artjoms Butjankovs (205-F/C-91) of Valmiera - 10 points and 13 rebounds
8. Ronalds Zakis (207-F/C-87) of Ventspils - 17 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Andzejs Pasecniks (211-C-95) of U18 - 14 points and 6 rebounds
10. Zanis Peiners (204-G-90) of LU - 24 points and 4 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)
