Elvis
Endzels
Point guard Elvis Endzels (188-PG-94) put on an amazing game in the last round for Turiba (they play in Places 1-1), receiving a Eurobasket.com LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 12 (Second Stage).
The 22-year old player got a double-double of 24 points and 17 assists, while his team crushed ViA (#4, 12-4) with 18-point margin 94-76. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Turiba to consolidate first place in the Latvian LBL2. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. It's already very far into the season and Turiba keeps a perfect 17-0 record. In the team's last game Endzels had a remarkable 53.8% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 6 attempts. It's his second year at Turiba and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Elvis Endzels has solid league stats. He is in league's top in assists (4th best: 6.3apg) and averages impressive 63.6% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 24-year old Ronalds Elksnis (203-C-92) of Jelgava. Elksnis had a very good evening with a double-double of 24 points and 10 rebounds. Of course he led Jelgava to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Livani (#11, 1-13) 96-76. This victory allowed Jelgava to move up to 3rd position in the standings. His team's 13-4 record is not bad at all. Elksnis is a newcomer at Jelgava, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was guard Nikolajs Zotovs (182-PG-98) of VEF skola (#15). Zotovs scored 28 points and passed seven assists. He was a key player of VEF skola, leading his team to a 98-71 easy win against the lower-ranked Jekabpils II (#19, 3-10). VEF skola needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 8 victories and 5 lost games. Zotovs has a great season in Latvia. After 15 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.5ppg (8th best) and assists with 5.5apg (7th best). He also has 2.7spg and FGP: 53.2%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Oskars Hlebovickis (197-G) of VEF skola - 24 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Niks Saknitis (203-F-92) of Kekava - 23 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Davids Ozolins (201-C-98) of LU/BS Riga - 22 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Sandis Bets (194-G-92) of Ogre/Kumho Tyre - 24 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Davis Klegeris (184-G-97) of LU/BS Riga - 28 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Roberts Mednis (205-C-89) of Gulbenes Buki - 17 points, 17 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Maris Baranovskis (198-C-79) of Gulbenes Buki - 30 points and 15 rebounds

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)
