American guard Perry Petty (185-G-88) had an amazing evening in the last round for Giurgiu, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 26. The 24-year old player had a double-double of 30 points and 11 rebounds, while his team outclassed Dinamo B. (#16, 1-25) with 39-point margin 101-62. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on the top of the standings. Giurgiu maintains the 12th position in Romanian Division A. Giurgiu is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 9-17 record. In the team's last game Petty had a remarkable 100.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Giurgiu's top player in his first season with the team. Former University of Texas-Pan American star has very solid stats this year. Petty is in league's top in points (4th best: 17.3ppg), assists (9th best: 4.2apg) and averages impressive 2.2spg and 54.2% FGP. Worth to mention Petty played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.
The second best player in last round's games was 25-year old American Jeremi Booth (195-G-87) of Farul Const.. Booth had a very good evening with 29 points and 6 rebounds. Of course he lead Farul Const. to another comfortable win 82-63 over the higher-ranked Pitesti (#11, 12-14) being unquestionably team leader. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. Farul Const. keeps 14th position. 21 lost games are too many comparing to just five victories Farul Const. managed to get this year. Booth is a newcomer at Farul Const., but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was former international center Catalin Burlacu (210-C-77, agency: Court Side) of Ploiesti (#3). Burlacu showcased his all-around game by recording 20 points, eight rebounds and six assists in the last round. He was a key player of Ploiesti, leading his team to a 89-79 win against the lower-ranked Timisoara (#7, 17-9). Ploiesti needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 19 victories and 7 lost games. Burlacu has a very solid season. In 26 games in Romania he scored 13.7ppg. He also has 6.3rpg and FGP: 57.4%.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Louis Darby (196-G-84) of Rovinari - 26 points and 10 rebounds 5. Goran Martinic (183-PG-87) of CSM Bucuresti - 25 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists 6.

Titus Nicoara (203-PF-88) of Gaz Metan - 14 points and 12 rebounds
The Player of the week is choosen 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)

He played last season at Steaua CSM EximBank Bucuresti in Romanian Liga Nationala. In 17 games he had 13.9ppg, 2.3rpg and 3.4apg. Troupe helped them to win the regular season and make it to the semifinals. He also played for CS Energia Rovinari Targu Jiu (also in Liga Nationala) that season where in 20 games he recorded 14.5ppg, 3.2rpg and 3.2apg. Troupe also played 12 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he recorded very impressive stats: 16.2ppg, 3.6rpg, 4.3apg and 1.3spg. The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he was voted Eurobasket.com All-Romanian League 3rd Team in 2015. Troupe has played on three different continents (Europe, Asia and of course North America). He has played previously professionally in Cyprus (Apoel), Lebanon (Al Moutahed) and IBL (Vancouver Volcanoes). Troupe attended University of Portland until 2002 and it will be his 15th (!!!) season as a professional player. He could be described:
Porter is a combo guard that can also move to the 3 position in some leagues. Possessing a deadly shooting stroke, he is a great asset to any team. As a big guard he is also effective posting smaller players but is usually too quick for players his size. Having played point guard in the past, Porter has a great understanding of where all his teammates are on the floor. Porter is very dangerous in a pick and roll situation as both, a scorer or a provider. Defensively, Porter is at his best playing the passing lane using long arms to discourage passes and create turnovers. On the ball is very good at containing the ball handler. He can also lend a helping hand rebounding although this isn't his strength. Porter would be an asset to any team playing in the Eurochallenge or Eurocup.
