Tiago Raimundo gets MVP of the Week award for Portuguese Proliga - Nov 20, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Talented Tiago Raimundo (194-G/F-90) had a very impressive game in the last round for Illiabum and that's him to receive a Proliga Player of the Week award for round 5.
The 22-year old swingman had a double-double of 18 points and eleven rebounds, while his team edged out Sangalhos (3-2) in overtime 64-61. Illiabum is placed at 5th position in Portuguese Proliga. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost two games earlier this season. Illiabum will need more victories to improve their 3-2 record. Raimundo turned to be Illiabum's top player in his first season with the team. Raimundo has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (7th best: 14.4ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 11.0rpg) and averages solid 2.4spg and 65.2% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was -year old American center Chano Rashiduddin (208-C) of Terceira. Rashiduddin impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Terceira lost that game 51-68 to the higher-ranked Angra (#7, 2-3). Terceira are still at the very bottom. 5 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Rashiduddin is a newcomer at Terceira and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.0ppg (#5). He also registered 12.4 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was Cape Verdean Flavio Gomes (194-G/F-89) of Angra (#7). Gomes showcased his all-around game by recording 19 points, fourteen rebounds (!!!) and five assists in the last round. He was a key player of Angra, leading his team to a 68-51 easy win against Terceira (#11, 0-5). The chances of Angra ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 3 games, recording just two victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Gomes could help Angra to bring them higher in the standings. Gomes has a great season in Portugal. After only 5 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.6rpg (8th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Pedro Rocha (190-G/F-87) of Ginasio - 19 points and 10 rebounds
5. Mario Neves (190-G/F-77) of Electrico FC - 8 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Pedro Belo (214-C/F-92) of Benfica B - 15 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Jose Almeida (199-F-86) of Guifoes - 16 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Tiago Barreiro (187-G-83) of Ginasio - 19 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Alvaro Pontes (190-F-85) of Angra - 13 points and 10 rebounds
10. Pedro Loth (188-G-79) of Angra - 16 points 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)

Diogo Dias
Dias is back at Terceira - 11 hours ago

Terceira Basket SUSIARTE (Proliga) signed 21-year old swingman Diogo Dias (193-95). It is actually his comeback to Angra Heroismo as he has played here before. Dias played last season at Lusitania in the LPB. LPB was a little too high level for him, where in four games he had just 0.8ppg. Proliga will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time.

Andre Calabote (ex Torrelodones) agreed terms with Lusitania - 11 hours ago

S.C. Lusitania EXPERT (LPB) strengthened their roster with addition of 23-year old Portuguese point guard Andre Calabote (181-93). He played most recently at Torrelodones in Spanish EBA league. But in 16 games he recorded just 1.6ppg, 1.2rpg and 1.3apg last season. Part of previous (2014-15) season Calabote spent at Igualatorio Cantabria Estela Santander (also in EBA) where in 9 games he averaged only 1.4ppg. He also played that season for CAB Madeira. In two LPB games he did not score an...   [read more]
