Best players of Latvian LBL round 26 - Feb 15, 2013

Zanis
Peineris
Zanis Peiners (204-G-90, agency: Interperformances) had an amazing evening in the last round for LU and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 26.
The 22-year old guard had the game-high 32 points adding seven rebounds and six assists for LU in his team's victory, helping them to beat Turiba (#10, 7-16) 90-75. LU is placed at 7th position in Latvian LBL. LU 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 10-14 record. In the team's last game Peiners had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at LU, through which he has constantly improved. Peiners has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 20.1ppg. Peiners is in league's top in assists (9th best: 3.0apg) and averages solid 51.7% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old Ukrainian point guard Rinalds Sirsnins (186-PG-85) of Jekabpils. Sirsnins impressed basketball fans with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Bad luck as Jekabpils lost that game 88-95 to the lower-ranked Liepaja (#9, 8-15). Jekabpils managed to keep the same 3rd spot in the standings. His team's 13-9 record is not bad at all. Sirsnins is a newcomer at Jekabpils 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 Tyler Cain (203-F-88) of second-ranked Barons kvartals. Cain scored 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Despite Cain's great performance Barons kvartals lost 74-87 to #1 ranked Valmiera. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing Barons kvartals needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 14 victories and 8 lost games. Cain has a very solid season. In 11 games in Latvia he scored 15.5ppg. He also has 11.1rpg, 1.5bpg and FGP: 62.0%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Matiss Rudmiezis (190-F-91) of Turiba - 15 points and 4 rebounds
5. Janis Berzins (202-F-93) of Valmiera - 20 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Zanis Peiners (204-G-90) of LU - 22 points and 7 rebounds
7. Atis Ozols (199-F-81) of Jurmala - 14 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Raimonds Gabrans (185-G-84) of Valmiera - 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
9. P.J. Hill jr. (182-PG-87) of Jekabpils - 16 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Janis Kaufmanis (186-G-89) of Valmiera - 10 points, 3 rebounds and 6 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)

Guard Eduards Hazners (192-G-97) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Valmiera, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3. The 20-year old player was the main contributor (28 points, four rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to edge out Valka/Valga (#6, 1-2) 75-71. Valmiera is placed at 8th position in Latvian LBL. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 4 games and recorded j...   [read more]

Heidelberg tabs Carson Puriefoy, ex Valmiera - 4 days ago
