Marko
Marinovic
Serbian point guard Marko Marinovic (183-PG-83) had a very impressive game in the last round for second-ranked Levski Sofia, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 25.
The 29-year old player was the main contributor (30 points, two rebounds and nine assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Cherno More (#8, 10-15) 86-77. Levski Sofia maintains the 2nd position in Bulgarian NBL. They are still close to the very top. Levski Sofia would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 21-4 record. In the team's last game Marinovic had a remarkable eight three-pointers out of 9 attempts. He turned to be Levski Sofia's top player in his first season with the team. Marko Marinovic has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (6th best: 16.3ppg), assists (3rd best: 5.3apg) and averages impressive 65.0% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 24-year old American James Tyler (218-C-88) of Chernomorets. Tyler had a very good evening with a double-double of 25 points and 15 rebounds. Of course he lead Chernomorets to another comfortable win 83-69 over slightly lower-ranked Spartak Pleven (#9, 5-20) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Chernomorets 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 10-15 record. Tyler is a newcomer at Chernomorets, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.9ppg (#2). He also registered 13.6 boards per game. Former star Tyler is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Brian Ormon (201-F-84) of Tundja Yambol (#5). Ormon scored 23 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Tundja Yambol, leading his team to a 98-95 win against slightly higher-ranked Rilski Sportist (#4, 15-10). Tundja Yambol needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 13 victories and 12 lost games. Ormon has a great season in Bulgaria. After 19 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.2rpg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Atila Santos (208-C-83) of Balkan - 17 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Bogdan Boev (196-SG-82) of Chernomorets - 24 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Darryl Watkins (211-C-84) of Lukoil Academik - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists
7. Asen Velikov (185-PG-86) of Cherno More - 18 points, 3 rebounds and 9 assists
8. Nemanja Milosevic (204-C/F-87) of Tundja Yambol - 12 points and 12 rebounds
9. Tony Gugino (207-C-86) of Rilski Sportist - 17 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Martin Durchev (204-SF-87) of Tundja Yambol - 22 points, 2 rebounds and 5 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)
