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.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Branko Cvetkovic (200-F/G-84) of BC Astana - 31 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Obie Trotter (188-PG-84) of N.Novgorod - 17 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists
6. Will Daniels (203-F-86) of VEF Riga - 24 points and 2 rebounds
7. Nick Calathes (198-PG-89) of Lokomotiv - 19 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists
8. Armands Skele (192-G-83) of Kalev/Cramo - 20 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Valdas Vasylius (203-F-83) of Neptunas - 16 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Chuck Eidson (203-F-80) of Unics - 18 points, 4 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)
