Kjellbom's 19 points and 8 rebounds give him Player of the Week award - Mar 15, 2017

Kjellbom
37-year old center Joakim Kjellbom (212-C-79) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for second-ranked Norrkoping Dolphins and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 33.
He had the game-high 19 points adding eight rebounds and two assists for Norrkoping in his team's victory, helping them to crush Uppsala (#4, 17-11) with 25-point margin 91-66. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Norrkoping maintains the 2nd position in Swedish league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Norrkoping will need more victories to improve their 20-8 record. Kjellbom has many years of experience at Norrkoping, through which he has constantly improved. Northern Arizona University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Kjellbom leads league in rebounds with 8.6rpg. Kjellbom is in league's top in and averages solid 2.2bpg and 61.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was George Valentine (203-F-88, agency: Mansfield and Associates) of Umea. He is American forward in his first season at Umea. In the last game Valentine recorded impressive double-double of 15 points and 15 rebounds. It was enough for Umea to edge the higher-ranked Jamtland (#5, 15-14) by 4 points 87-83. Umea's 8th position in the standings has not changed. 25 lost games are too many comparing to just five victories Umea managed to get this year. Valentine is a newcomer at Umea and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to center Dartaye Ruffin (205-C-91, agency: Dynamics Global Management) of Nassjo (#7). Ruffin scored 19 points and grabbed ten rebounds. Despite Ruffin's great performance Nassjo lost 60-82 to the higher-ranked BC Lulea (#1, 22-7). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Nassjo ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 17 games, recording just thirteen victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Ruffin could help Nassjo to bring them higher in the standings. Ruffin has a great season in Sweden. After 30 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.9rpg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Nicholas Spires (210-C-94) of Sodertalje - 14 points and 5 rebounds
5. Toni Bizaca (202-F-82) of Sodertalje - 22 points and 3 assists
6. Mikael Lindquist (193-SG-83) of Norrkoping - 18 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Jabril Durham (185-G-94) of Jamtland - 25 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Brandon Rozzell (188-G-89) of BC Lulea - 15 points and 4 rebounds
9. Jordan Peltier (193-G-95) of Malbas - 21 points and 5 assists
10. Josh Ritchart (206-PF-92) of Malbas - 19 points and 8 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)
