Andrew James Ogilvy gets MVP of the Week award for Turkish TBL (by Efes Pilsen) - Mar 14, 2011 (by Eurobasket News)
Australian Andrew James Ogilvy (211-C-88) had an amazing evening in the last round for Besiktas ColaTurka Istanbul and that's him to receive a Efes Pilsen Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 21.
The 22-year old center had the game-high 22 points adding nine rebounds for Besiktas in his team's victory, helping them to beat Fener.Ulker (#1, 18-3) 92-84. Besiktas maintains the 5th position in Turkish TBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Besiktas will need more victories to improve their 14-7 record. Ogilvy turned to be Besiktas' top player in his first season with the team. Andrew James Ogilvy averages this season 12.9ppg and 6.6rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old American guard Keith Simmons (196-G-85, agency: Interperformances) of Banvit Basketbol Kulubu. Simmons impressed basketball fans with 23 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Bad luck as Banvit lost that game 76-84 to the lower-ranked Karsiyaka (#6, 14-7). Banvit managed to keep the same 3rd spot in the standings. His team's 16-5 record is not bad at all. Simmons is well-known by Banvit fans and he already established his position as one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Ali Karadeniz (203-F-80) of Trabzonspor Basketbol (#11). Karadeniz scored 28 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Despite Karadeniz's great performance Trabzonspor lost 77-89 to the higher-ranked Efes Pilsen (#4, 15-6). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Trabzonspor not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 13 games, recording just eight victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Karadeniz could try to bring Trabzonspor's a little bit higher in the standings. Karadeniz has individually a great season in Turkey. After 20 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 22.3ppg (best scorer) and rebounds with 8.0rpg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Vincent Grier (195-G/F-83) of Mersin - 23 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Mire Chatman (187-G-78) of Besiktas - 16 points, 4 rebounds and 10 assists
6. KZell Wesson (201-F/C-77) of Turk Telekom - 14 points and 14 rebounds
7. Marvis Thornton (194-G-77) of Efes Pilsen - 11 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists
8. Gerrod Henderson (192-G-78) of Antalya - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Charles Davis (202-F-84) of Banvit - 17 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Kimani Ffriend (211-C-77) of Bornova - 14 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists

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)
