Janis
Berzins
Forward Janis Berzins (202-F-93, agency: Players Group) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for top-ranked Valmiera, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 28.
The 19-year old player recorded a triple-double of 26 points addeding also 11 rebounds and 11 assists, while his team crushed Barons kvartals (15-9) with 21-point margin 99-78. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Valmiera to take over top position in the Latvian LBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Valmiera has a very solid 15-9 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. In the team's last game Berzins had a remarkable 54.5% from 2-point range. He turned to be Valmiera's top player in his first season with the team. Janis Berzins has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (5th best: 15.9ppg), rebounds (7th best: 7.3rpg) and averages impressive 56.4% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 25-year old American Keith Chamberlain (204-F/C-87) of Jelgava. Chamberlain had a very good evening with 22 points and 8 rebounds. Bad luck as Jelgava lost that game 88-96 to the higher-ranked Jekabpils (#2, 15-9). Jelgava managed to keep the same 6th spot in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 10-12 record. Chamberlain is a newcomer at Jelgava 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.

Third on the list of top players last round was Polish center Michal Hlebowicki (204-C-76) of league's second-best Jekabpils. Hlebowicki scored 18 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Jekabpils, leading his team to a 96-88 win against the lower-ranked Jelgava (#6, 10-12). Jekabpils needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 15 victories and 9 lost games. Hlebowicki has a great season in Latvia. After 23 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 6.6rpg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Aleksey Adediran (204-C-82) of Liepaja - 16 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Maris Gulbis (202-F-85) of Barons kvartals - 30 points and 3 rebounds
6. Janis Kaufmanis (186-G-89) of Valmiera - 30 points
7. Rinalds Sirsnins (186-PG-85) of Jekabpils - 32 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Kristaps Kanbergs (190-G-88) of Jelgava - 23 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Dairis Bertans (192-SG-89) of VEF Riga - 13 points, 3 rebounds and 10 assists
10. Tyler Cain (203-F-88) of Barons kvartals - 14 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is chosen 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)

Swingman Martin Barrett (196-F/G) had a great game in the last round for Madona/BJSS (they play in Places 13-21) and receives a Eurobasket.com LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 14 (Second Stage).
