James
Weatherspoon
24-year old forward James Weatherspoon (198-F-92) had a very impressive game in the last round for second-ranked Baerum Basket and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 20.
He had a double-double of 32 points and 13 rebounds, while his team crushed Asker Aliens (#7, 11-12) with 22-point margin 115-93. Baerum Basket maintains the 2nd position in Norwegian league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Baerum Basket will need more victories to improve their 18-5 record. Weatherspoon turned to be Baerum Basket's top player in his first season with the team. The University of Toledo graduate has very impressive stats this year. Weatherspoon is in league's top in points (6th best: 21.5ppg), rebounds (7th best: 10.5rpg) and averages solid 64.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Espen Stien (186-G-86) of Asker Aliens. He is former international guard in his 13th season at Asker Aliens. In the last game Stien recorded impressive 57 points and 2 rebounds. Bad luck as Asker Aliens lost that game 93-115 to the higher-ranked Baerum Basket (#2, 18-5). Asker Aliens managed to keep the same 7th spot in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 11-12 record. Stien is one of the most experienced players at Asker Aliens and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.4ppg (#9). He also recorded 3.7 assists per game.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Nick Victor (196-G-92) of Gimle BBK (#4). Victor got into 30-points club by scoring 32 points in the last round. He went also for eight rebounds . He was a key player of Gimle BBK, leading his team to a 103-74 easy win against the lower-ranked Persbraten (#10, 1-22). Gimle BBK needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 14 victories and 10 lost games. Victor has a great season in Norway. After 14 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 4.1apg (8th best). He also has 2.1spg, 1.1bpg and FGP: 58.5%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Aksel Bolinz (201-G/F-90) of Centrum - 21 points and 11 rebounds
5. Magne Fivelstad (198-G/F-89) of Gimle BBK - 18 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Eric Gilchrese (183-PG-87) of Baerum Basket - 25 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists
7. Kahlil McDonald (194-G-87) of Nidaros Jets - 31 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Earl Simba (204-PF-92) of Nidaros Jets - 6 points, 22 rebounds and 9 assists
9. Stian Mjos (183-PG-89) of Baerum Basket - 26 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists
10. Torgrim Sommerfeldt (198-SF-89) of Centrum - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 5 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)
