James
Weatherspoon
American Forward James Weatherspoon (198-F-92) had a great game in the last round for second-ranked Baerum Basket, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 24.
The 24-year old player had a double-double of 33 points and 10 rebounds, while his team crushed Persbraten (#10, 2-25) with 19-point margin 98-79. Baerum Basket maintains the 2nd position in Norwegian BLNO. 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 21-6 record. Weatherspoon turned to be Baerum Basket's top player in his first season with the team. Former The University of Toledo star has very solid stats this year. Weatherspoon is in league's top in points (4th best: 25.0ppg), rebounds (4th best: 11.2rpg) and averages impressive 67.1% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was another Baerum Basket's star - 27-year old Stian Mjos (183-PG-89). Mjos had a very good evening with 29 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Of course together with Weatherspoon he helped Baerum Basket with another comfortable win 98-79 over the lower-ranked Persbraten (#10, 2-25) being unquestionably team leader. Baerum Basket's second position in the standings has not changed. His team's 21-6 record is not bad at all. Mjos is one of the most experienced players at Baerum Basket and similarly like James Weatherspoon has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 25.4ppg (#2). He also recorded 4.4 assists per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Jeff Harper (203-F-87) of Froya Basket (#4). Harper scored 21 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Froya Basket, leading his team to a 56-48 win against the lower-ranked Tromso (#8, 9-18). Froya Basket needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 17 victories and 10 lost games. Harper has a very solid season. In 12 games in Norway he scored 14.3ppg. He also has 9.5rpg and FGP: 54.0%. Harper attended one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.

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)
