Mantas
Kalnietis
26-year old point guard Mantas Kalnietis (195-PG-86, agency: Interperformances) had a great game in the last round for Lokomotiv and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 14.
He had the game-high 35 points adding five rebounds and seven assists for Lokomotiv in his team's victory, helping them to beat Enisey (#7, 5-9) 94-87. Lokomotiv maintains the 3rd position in VTB United League . They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Lokomotiv will need more victories to improve their 10-4 record. Kalnietis turned to be Lokomotiv's top player in his first season with the team. Kalnietis has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in assists (8th best: 4.3apg) and averages solid 65.5% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Kostas Kaimakoglou (206-C/F-83) of Unics. He is Greek in his first season at Unics. In the last game Kaimakoglou recorded impressive 21 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. It was enough for Unics to edge slightly higher-ranked Khimky (10-4) by 6 points 76-70. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Unics consolidated its place in top 4 of the standings. His team's 10-4 record is not bad at all. Kaimakoglou is a newcomer at Unics and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 14.8ppg (#7). He also registered 5.9 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Manny Harris (196-G-89) of Azovmash (#10). Harris scored 24 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Despite Harris' great performance Azovmash lost 58-74 to the higher-ranked Spartak SP (#2, 10-3). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Azovmash can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 2-12 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Harris he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Harris has a very solid season. In 10 games in VTB United League he scored 11.9ppg. He also has 5.0rpg and FGP: 52.3%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Will Daniels (203-F-86) of VEF Riga - 22 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Davon Jefferson (204-F-86) of Enisey - 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Ian Vougioukas (212-C/F-85) of Unics - 13 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Artem Yakovenko (205-F/C-88) of N.Novgorod - 23 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Darjus Lavrinovic (212-C-79) of Zalgiris - 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Nemanja Nedovic (191-PG-91) of Lietuvos rytas - 19 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Dejan Ivanov (205-F/C-86) of Lietuvos rytas - 12 points and 9 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)

Round 25: Parma still unable to win any game - 4 days ago
The Regular Season in VTB United League is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 5 rounds. Host teams show no mercy winning all games. Bottom-ranked Parma (0-18) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 101-72 loss to second ranked Zenit (17-3) in Saint Petersburg on Saturday evening. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. The g...   [read more]

Colom number one in VTB United League for round 24 - 9 days ago
Spanish Point guard Joaquin Colom (188-PG-88, agency: Interperformances) had a great game in the last round for Unics, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 24. The 28-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, three rebounds and nine assists) to as his team Unics maintains the 5th position in VTB United League. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Unics will need to avoid more loses keep or improve their 1...   [read more]
