Martin
Barrett
American Martin Barrett (196-F/G) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Madona (they play in Places 13-21) and that's him to receive a Court Side LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 13 (Second Stage).
The swingman had the game-high 36 points adding four rebounds and five assists for Madona in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Riga/Ridzene (#20, 1-10) with 41-point margin 114-73. The game was not the highest importance and did not have significant influence on top of the standings. Madona is placed at 17th 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 7-5 record. In the team's last game Barrett had a remarkable 78.9% from 2-point range. He turned to be Madona's top player in his first season with the team. Mount Olive College graduate has very impressive stats this year. Barrett is league's best scorer averaging so far 27.9ppg and leads league in rebounds with 12.9rpg. Barrett is in league's top in and averages solid 2.3spg. Worth to mention Barrett played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was another Madona's star - young center Emils Petersons (196-C-99). Petersons impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds. Of course together with Barrett he helped Madona with another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Riga/Ridzene (#20, 1-10) 114-73. Similarly like above, the game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. But Madona managed to improve slightly their position in standings taking 17th place in Places 13-21. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 7-5 record is not bad and everything may still change. Petersons is well-known by Madona fans and together with Martin Barrett they both established positions among team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was Armands Osins (190-PG-91) of Limbazi (#8). Osins got into 30-points club by scoring exactly 30 points in the last round. He went also for four assists. Despite Osins' great performance Limbazi lost 83-85 to the higher-ranked RSU (#5, 9-8). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Limbazi can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 5-12 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Osins he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Osins has individually a great season in Latvia. After 16 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.5ppg (9th best) and assists with 5.6apg (6th best). He also has 2.6spg and FGP: 62.3%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Gatis Justovics (184-G-87) of Jelgava - 14 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists
5. Ivars Ikstens (183-PG-90) of RSU - 24 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Ronalds Elksnis (203-C-92) of Jelgava - 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Davis Klegeris (184-G-97) of LU/BS Riga - 21 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Ricards Melderis (188-SG-96) of LU/BS Riga - 20 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists
9. Daumants Pabrieza (183-G-87) of Livani - 27 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Janis Engers (200-F-95) of ViA - 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 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)

The Player of the Week awards are presented by Court Side. Court Side is the global leader in basketball management, and is widely regarded as the most dynamic and innovative company of its kind. It was the first Basketball Agency to launch its own website, and the first to have its own database. Court Side has more agents and manpower within its organization, than any other competitor, and its international network of basketball contacts is still unparalleled.
