Latvian LBL round 28 best performance: Artjoms Butjankovs - Apr 4, 2017

Artjoms
Butjankovs
Power forward Artjoms Butjankovs (205-F/C-91) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Liepaja/Triobet, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 28.
The 25-year old player was the main contributor (22 points, nine rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush Valka/Valga (#10, 3-15) with 23-point margin 108-85. Liepaja/Triobet maintains the 4th position in Latvian LBL. Liepaja/Triobet is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 15-15 record. In the team's last game Butjankovs had a remarkable 70.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Liepaja/Triobet's top player in his first season with the team. Artjoms Butjankovs has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (3rd best: 15.0ppg), rebounds (7th best: 7.2rpg) and averages impressive 55.9% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old Guntis Sipolins (206-C-93) of BK Ogre. Sipolins had a very good evening with 22 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course BK Ogre cruised to a 95-85 relatively comfortable win over the higher-ranked Ventspils (#1, 25-3). BK Ogre's 8th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 12-17 record. Sipolins is well-known at BK Ogre and is a proven leader in his second season with the team.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Tyler Larson (190-G-91) of Barons Riga (#5). Larson scored 18 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Barons Riga, leading his team to an 81-51 easy win against the lower-ranked LU (#9, 5-24). The chances of Barons Riga ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 14 games, recording just thirteen victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Larson could help Barons Riga to bring them higher in the standings. Larson has a great season in Latvia. After 16 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.1ppg (best scorer) and assists with 4.4apg (8th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Edmunds Elksnis (187-G-90) of Jurmala - 23 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Viktors Iljins (212-C-91) of Jurmala - 14 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Folarin Campbell (189-G/F-86) of Ventspils - 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Denis Krestinin (202-F-94) of Barons Riga - 15 points and 12 rebounds
8. Carl Montgomery (203-F) of Liepaja/Triobet - 16 points and 8 rebounds
9. Marcis Vitols (183-PG-92) of BK Ogre - 24 points and 7 assists
10. Renato Lindments (202-F-84) of Valka/Valga - 17 points and 7 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)

Latvian LBL round 3 best performance: Eduards Hazners - 5 minutes ago
Guard Eduards Hazners (192-G-97) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Valmiera, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3. The 20-year old player was the main contributor (28 points, four rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to edge out Valka/Valga (#6, 1-2) 75-71. Valmiera is placed at 8th position in Latvian LBL. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 4 games and recorded j...   [read more]

LBL Round 3: Ventspils keep a leadership position - 1 day ago
Ventspils smashed Jekabpils at home 76-50. Ventspils looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. It was a great evening for the former international point guard Ingus Jakovics (186-93, college: BS Liepaja) who led his team to a victory scoring 14 points and 8 assists. American guard Blake Hamilton (198-94, college: Buffalo) helped adding 10 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. Ventspils' coach Roberts Stelmahers felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowe...   [read more]
