Lee-Ingram
Anthony Lee-Ingram (195-F-88, agency: Beo Basket) had a very impressive game in the last round for Kumanovo and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 5 (Second Stage). He is American forward in his first season at Kumanovo. In the last game Lee-Ingram recorded impressive double-double of 24 points and 12 rebounds. It was enough for Kumanovo to edge the lower-ranked Teodo Tivat (#6, 2-7) by 6 points 96-90. Kumanovo's 3rd position in the standings has not changed. His team's 5-4 record is not bad at all.

Second best performed player last round was 23-year old center Uros Lukovic (212-C-89). He had a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds, while his team beat Teodo Tivat (#6, 2-7) 96-90. Kumanovo maintains the 3rd position in Balkan League . They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier in Second Stage. Kumanovo will need more victories to improve their 5-4 record. Lukovic turned to be Kumanovo's top player in his first season with the team. Lukovic has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (4th best: 16.9ppg) and averages solid 2.5bpg and 63.9% FGP.

Third place about best performers goes to center Aleksandar Radulovic (207-C-84, agency: BBEH Cokrlija) of Teodo Tivat (#6). Radulovic scored 18 points. Despite Radulovic's great performance Teodo Tivat lost 90-96 to the higher-ranked Kumanovo (#3, 5-4). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Teodo Tivat can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 2-7 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Radulovic he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Radulovic has individually a great season in Balkan League. After 12 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 15.5ppg (7th best) and rebounds with 7.6rpg (2nd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Manuel Johnson (201-F-83) of Teodo Tivat - 19 points and 8 rebounds
5. Mladen Pantic (209-C-82) of Levski Sofia - 16 points and 6 rebounds
6. Stefan Djordjevic (206-C-89) of Teodo Tivat - 17 points
7. Marko Marinovic (183-PG-83) of Levski Sofia - 21 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Terry Smith (185-PG-86) of Rilski Sportist - 19 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Aleksandar Kostoski (186-G-88) of Kumanovo - 18 points and 6 assists
10. Srdjan Subotic (195-G-88) of Teodo Tivat - 15 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists

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)
