Durell Vinson gets MVP of the Week award for Swiss LNA - Feb 14, 2017

Durell
Vinson
Experienced American Durell Vinson (201-F/C-85) put on an amazing game in the last round for Starwings and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 17.
The 31-year old power forward had a double-double of 23 points and twenty one rebounds, while his team beat Boncourt (#7, 6-10) 88-76. Starwings is placed at 5th position in Swiss LNA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Starwings will need more victories to improve their 9-6 record. In the team's last game Vinson had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range. It was one of impressive evenings for him as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Wagner College graduate has very impressive stats this year. Vinson is in league's top in rebounds (2nd best: 10.9rpg) and averages solid 57.8% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 26-year old American forward Travis Taylor (203-F-90) of league's best team Fribourg. Taylor impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds. Of course he led Fribourg to another comfortable win 88-75 over the lower-ranked Lugano Tigers (#6, 9-7) being unquestionably team leader. Of course Fribourg still keep the league's top spot. His team lost just three games this season, while they won 13 matches. Taylor is a newcomer at Fribourg and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Milton Jennings (206-F-90, agency: Court Side) of Winterthur (#11). Jennings scored 21 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Winterthur, leading his team to a 66-64 win against slightly higher-ranked Lausanne (#10, 4-12). Winterthur can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 1-14 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Too bad for Jennings he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Jennings has a very solid season. In 2 games in Switzerland he scored 15.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Eric Williams (206-C-84) of Lugano Tigers - 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Markel Humphrey (198-F-86) of Monthey - 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Marco Magnani (181-PG-85) of Massagno - 20 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Richard Carter (180-PG-92) of Boncourt - 22 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Marco Lehmann (185-SG-93) of Swiss Central - 25 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Jules Aw (202-F/C-86) of Lugano Tigers - 15 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Jordan Heath (208-F/C-91) of Monthey - 21 points and 11 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)
