Polish-German Katharina Fikiel (193-F/C-87) put on an amazing game in the last round for Wasserburg and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 2. The 25-year old power forward had the game-high 26 points adding eight rebounds and three assists for Wasserburg in her team's victory, helping them to beat Sint Katelijne (#4, 0-2) 88-77. Wasserburg is placed at 3rd position in Eurocup group D. They need more victories to improve their 1-1 record. In the team's last game Fikiel had a remarkable 80.0% from 2-point range. She turned to be Wasserburg's top player in her first season with the team.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 33-year old point guard Edwige Lawson-Wade (168-PG-79) of league's best team Lattes Montp.. Lawson-Wade impressed basketball fans with 32 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course Lattes Montp. cruised to a 87-76 overtime win over Chevakata (1-1). Her team has extremely good start of the season. They won both games so far. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Lawson-Wade is well-known by Lattes Montp. fans and she already established her position as one of team's most reliable players.
The third best performed player last round was American Kristina Santiago (185-F-89, agency: LBM Management) of Dunav 8806. Santiago scored 24 points and grabbed ten rebounds. Despite Santiago's great performance Dunav 8806 lost 80-84 to #2 ranked Botas. But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Dunav 8806 can only dream about fighting for top spots in group F. Too bad for Santiago she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. The season just started for Santiago as she played only first game. But it already looks like she can be team's leader.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Geraldine Robert (183-F-80) of Lattes Montp. - 18 points and 11 rebounds 5. Emma Cannon (188-F-89) of Wasserburg - 23 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists 6. Marie Malone (191-C-89) of SISU - 14 points and 23 rebounds 7. Anais Le Gluher (175-SG-82) of Landes - 27 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists 8.

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)
