Experienced Lithuanian Darius Songaila (204-C/F-78, agency: Priority Sports) had a great game in the last round for BC Donetsk and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 4.
The 34-year old had the game-high 25 points adding seven rebounds and two assists for BC Donetsk in his team's victory, helping them to beat Azovmash (#7, 1-3) 75-68. Thanks to this victory BC Donetsk moved-up to the 6th position in the VTB United League . BC Donetsk is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 2-2 record. Songaila turned to be BC Donetsk's top player in his first season with the team. Wake Forest University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Songaila is in league's top in points (3rd best: 17.3ppg), rebounds (9th best: 6.7rpg) and averages solid 3.3spg and 59.5% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 29-year old American guard Earl Rowland (188-G-83) of VEF Riga. Rowland impressed basketball fans with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. Bad luck as VEF Riga was edged in overtime by slightly higher-ranked Enisey (#3, 2-1) 96-93. This loss caused VEF Riga to drop to 5th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 2-2 record is not bad and everything may still change. Rowland is a newcomer at VEF Riga and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 21.8ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 7.3rpg and 5.8apg.

The third best performed player last round was another BC Donetsk's star - American Ramel Curry (192-G-80). Curry scored 27 points. He was another key player of BC Donetsk, helping his team with a 75-68 win against slightly lower-ranked Azovmash (#7, 1-3). BC Donetsk needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 2 victories and 2 lost games. Curry has a very solid season. In 4 games in VTB United League he scored 13.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Chuck Eidson (203-F-80) of Unics - 18 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Terrell Lyday (191-G-79) of Unics - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Deividas Gailius (200-F-88) of Neptunas - 24 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Vladimir Dragicevic (206-C/F-86) of Spartak SP - 20 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Ksistof Lavrinovic (210-C-79) of Zalgiris - 19 points and 8 rebounds
9. Vladimir Veremeenko (208-F-84) of Unics - 15 points and 4 rebounds
10. Bamba Fall (217-C-86) of Kalev/Cramo - 15 points and 8 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)
