Petr Benda
Center Petr Benda (203-C-82, agency: Court Side) had a great game in the last round for CEZ Nymburk, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9.
The 30-year old player had a double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds, while his team beat Tsmoki-Minsk (#10, 0-9), the league's bottom-ranked team 65-56. CEZ Nymburk maintains the 8th position in VTB United League . CEZ Nymburk 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 4-5 record. Benda has many years of experience at CEZ Nymburk, through which he has constantly improved. Petr Benda averages this season 9.8ppg and 5.6rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 33-year old American Lynn Greer (186-PG-79) of Azovmash. Greer had a very good evening with 32 points and 6 assists. Bad luck as Azovmash lost that game 88-94 to the higher-ranked Lietuvos rytas (#5, 5-4). Azovmash managed to keep the same 8th spot in the standings. 7 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories Azovmash managed to get this year. Greer is a newcomer at Azovmash, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 15.7ppg (#5). He also recorded 4.8 assists per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Earl Rowland (188-G-83) of VEF Riga (#4). Rowland scored 24 points and grabbed six rebounds. Despite Rowland's great performance VEF Riga lost 72-77 to #3 ranked Lokomotiv. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing VEF Riga needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 6 victories and 3 lost games. Rowland has a great season in VTB United League. After only 9 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.7ppg (best scorer), rebounds with 6.7rpg (7th best) and assists with 5.8apg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Aleks Maric (211-C-84) of Lokomotiv - 14 points and 12 rebounds
5. Davon Jefferson (204-F-86) of Enisey - 19 points and 13 rebounds
6. Deividas Gailius (200-F-88) of Neptunas - 21 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Nick Calathes (198-PG-89) of Lokomotiv - 21 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists
8. JaJuan Smith (188-G-85) of Tsmoki-Minsk - 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Nenad Krstic (212-C-83) of CSKA - 16 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Renaldas Seibutis (198-SG-85) of Lietuvos rytas - 18 points, 3 rebounds and 6 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)
