Latvian LBL2 round 9 (Second Stage) best performance: Martin Barrett - Feb 2, 2017

Martin
Barrett
American Swingman Martin Barrett (196-F/G) had a great game in the last round for Madona (they play in Places 13-21), receiving a Eurobasket.com LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 9 (Second Stage).
The player had a double-double of 25 points and 21 rebounds, while his team beat BJBS Riga (#21, 0-8), the league's bottom-ranked team 94-86. Madona is placed at 3rd position in Latvian LBL2. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier in Second Stage. Madona will need more victories to improve their 6-4 record. Barrett turned to be Madona's top player in his first season with the team. Former Mount Olive College star has very solid stats this year. Barrett is league's best scorer averaging so far 27.5ppg and leads league in rebounds with 15.3rpg. Barrett is in league's top in and averages impressive 2.2spg and 40.6% from behind 3-point line. Worth to mention Barrett played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

The second best player in last round's games was young Arvids Dambenieks (186-G-98) of LU/BS Riga. Dambenieks had a very good evening with 28 points and 3 assists. Of course he led LU/BS Riga to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Riga/Ridzene (#20, 1-8) 93-61. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. LU/BS Riga dropped in the standings to 17th position. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 5-3 record is not bad and everything may still change. Dambenieks is one of the most experienced players at LU/BS Riga and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was center Roberts Mednis (205-C-89) of Gulbenes Buki (#12). Mednis scored 18 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Mednis' great performance Gulbenes Buki lost 78-79 to slightly higher-ranked Saldus (#10, 3-13). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Gulbenes Buki can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-12 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Mednis he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Mednis has individually a great season in Latvia. After 17 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 10.2rpg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Matiss Caune (186-G-93) of Livani - 17 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Daumants Pabrieza (183-G-87) of Livani - 11 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Agnis Cavars (196-F-86) of Kekava - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Aivars Dambis (183-G) of BJBS Riga - 24 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Nauris Rikveilis (189-G-94) of Gulbenes Buki - 18 points and 8 rebounds
9. Aigars Strelis (200-F-87) of Livani - 17 points and 8 rebounds
10. Davis Bigestans (179-G-99) of BJBS Riga - 27 points, 5 rebounds and 2 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)
