Mindaugas
Kuzminskas
Forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas (205-F-89) had a very impressive game in the last round for top-ranked Zalgiris, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 15.
The 23-year old player was the main contributor (22 points, eight rebounds and two assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush Enisey (#8, 5-10) with 25-point margin 86-61. It allowed Zalgiris to consolidate first place in the VTB United League . Zalgiris has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 14-1. Kuzminskas has many years of experience at Zalgiris, through which he has constantly improved. Mindaugas Kuzminskas averages this season 8.9ppg.

The second best player in last round's games was 28-year old Nigerian Michael Efevberha (197-G-84) of CEZ Nymburk. Efevberha had a very good evening with 24 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. It was enough for CEZ Nymburk to edge the higher-ranked VEF Riga (#4, 9-6) 89-85. This victory allowed CEZ Nymburk to move up to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-9 record. Efevberha is one of the most experienced players at CEZ Nymburk and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Curtis Millage (185-G-81) of BC Donetsk (#7). Millage showcased his all-around game by recording 17 points, five rebounds and nine assists in the last round. He was a key player of BC Donetsk, leading his team to a 96-87 win against the higher-ranked Krasnie Krilya (#2, 11-4). The chances of BC Donetsk ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 9 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Millage could help BC Donetsk to bring them higher in the standings. Millage has a very solid season. In 6 games in VTB United League he scored 5.5ppg.

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)
