Kalnins' double-double lands him LBL2 (Second Stage) Player of the Week award - Mar 6, 2017

Juris
Kalnins
23-year old power forward Juris Kalnins (200-F/C-93) put on an amazing game in the last round for Livani (they play in Places 1-1) and receives a Eurobasket.com LBL2 Player of the Week award for round 17 (Second Stage).
He had a double-double of 35 points and 13 rebounds, while his team beat ViA (#4, 14-6) 76-68. Livani maintains the 11th position in Latvian LBL2. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 14 games and recorded just four victories. Kalnins just recently signed at Livani, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Kalnins has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in assists (9th best: 1.5apg) and averages solid 1.1bpg and 55.9% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Martin Barrett (196-F/G) of Madona. He is American swingman in his first season at Madona. In the last game Barrett recorded impressive double-double of 31 points and 13 rebounds. Of course Madona cruised to a 89-80 relatively comfortable win over slightly higher-ranked VeA (#13, 14-2). 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 15th place in Places 13-21. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 10-5 record is not bad and everything may still change. Barrett is a newcomer at Madona and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 28.9ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 12.2rpg and 3.7apg. Former Mount Olive College star Barrett is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Eduards Hazners (192-G-97) of VEF skola (#4). Hazners got into 30-points club by scoring 33 points in the last round. He went also for seven rebounds and four assists. He was a key player of VEF skola, leading his team to a 91-85 win against the lower-ranked Valmiera/ORDO-2 (#18, 6-8). VEF skola needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 10 victories and 6 lost games. Hazners has a very solid season. In 8 games in Latvia he scored 22.3ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Martins Steinbergs (191-G-90) of Kekava - 28 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Rainers Kalnins (188-G-99) of Valmiera/ORDO-2 - 28 points and 8 assists
6. Davids Muiznieks (196-F/G-94) of Turiba - 31 points and 8 rebounds
7. Rihards Ginters (192-SF-93) of RSU - 27 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Agnis Cavars (196-F-86) of Kekava - 15 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists
9. Kaspars Baumanis (184-G-91) of Saldus - 24 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Arturs Skute (202-C/F-86) of Madona - 20 points, 6 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)
