25-year old forward Josimar Cardoso (201-F-87) had an amazing evening in the last round for Alges and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 6. He had a double-double of 27 points and 12 rebounds, while his team edged out Lusitania (1-4) in overtime 94-91. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on the top of the standings. Alges is placed at 9th position in Portuguese league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 4 games and recorded just one victory. In the team's last game Cardoso had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He turned to be Alges' top player in his first season with the team. Cardoso has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 9.0rpg) and averages solid 46.7% from behind 3-point line.
Second best performed player last round was Al Rapier (200-F-89, agency: Dynamics Global Management) of Sampaense. He is American forward in his first season at Sampaense. In the last game Rapier recorded impressive 21 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. It was enough for Sampaense to edge slightly higher-ranked CAB Madeira (#5, 2-2) by 3 points 72-69. This victory allowed Sampaense to move up to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 2-3 record. Rapier is a newcomer at Sampaense and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.4ppg (#1). He also registered 8.0 boards per game.
Third place about best performers goes to guard Nuno Oliveira (186-PG-89) of Barcelos (#8). Oliveira showcased his all-around game by recording 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists in the last round. Despite Oliveira's great performance Barcelos lost 73-75 to the league's current leader Benfica (#1, 5-0). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Barcelos not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 4 games, recording just two victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Oliveira could try to bring Barcelos' a little bit higher in the standings. Oliveira has individually a great season in Portugal. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.3ppg (7th best).
Other top performing players last week: 4. Marcel Momplasir (205-C-81) of Lusitania - 19 points, 14 rebounds and 3 assists 5. Paulo Cunha (200-F-80) of Vitoria SC - 16 points, 16 rebounds and 2 assists 6. Rui Quintino (194-SF-83) of Alges - 13 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists 7. Miguel Miranda (205-F-78) of Ovarense - 18 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists 8. Jose Miguel Barbosa (176-G-90) of Ovarense - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists 9. Joao Gomes (201-SG-85) of Benfica - 21 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists 10. Seth Doliboa (203-F-80) of Benfica - 9 points and 16 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)
