Jordan Heath
American Jordan Heath (208-F/C-91, agency: Inception Sports) had a great game in the last round for league's second-best Monthey and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 4 (Second Stage).
The 25-year old power forward had a double-double of 25 points and eighteen rebounds, while his team beat Geneve Lions (#4, 14-10) 75-65. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Monthey maintains the 2nd position in Swiss LNA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier in Second Stage. Monthey will need more victories to improve their 17-7 record. In the team's last game Heath had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range. He turned to be Monthey's top player in his first season with the team. Canisius College graduate has very impressive stats this year. Heath is in league's top in rebounds (5th best: 9.0rpg) and averages solid 1.7bpg and 63.8% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 22-year old American forward Brandon Taylor (201-F-94, agency: Three Eye Sports) of Massagno. Taylor impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds. Of course Massagno cruised to a 89-81 relatively comfortable win over slightly lower-ranked Winterthur (#11, 3-21). The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. Massagno keeps 10th position. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 8-15 record. Taylor is one of the most experienced players at Massagno and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Jordan Loveridge (198-F-93) of Lausanne (#8). Loveridge scored 18 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Lausanne, leading his team to a 95-81 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Massagno (#10, 8-15). The chances of Lausanne ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 13 games, recording just nine victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Loveridge could help Lausanne to bring them higher in the standings. Loveridge has a very solid season. In 5 games in Switzerland he scored 16.2ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jonas Bergstedt (210-C-91) of Massagno - 13 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Warren Niles (196-G-89) of Massagno - 19 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Marco Lehmann (185-SG-93) of Swiss Central - 19 points and 6 rebounds
7. Shane Southwell (201-F/G-92) of Winterthur - 11 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Jordan Downing (196-G-92) of Winterthur - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Anton Wilson (196-G-94) of Lausanne - 20 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Pankracije Barac (196-G-81) of Monthey - 19 points, 8 rebounds and 3 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)
