Luka Zoric claims Euroleague weekly honour - Mar 16, 2013

Luka Zoric
Croatian Luka Zoric (211-C-84) had an amazing evening in the last round for Unicaja and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 11 (Top 16).
The 28-year old center had a double-double of 21 points and twelve rebounds, while his team edged out Real Madrid (#2, 9-2) 77-74. Unicaja maintains the 5th position in Euroleague group E. Unicaja is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. But it was their 5th lost game this season out of 11 games. It's Zoric's second year at Unicaja and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Luka Zoric averages this season 12.3ppg and 5.2rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old American point guard Ricky Hickman (189-PG-85) of Maccabi T-A. Hickman impressed basketball fans with 30 points and 2 rebounds. It was enough for Maccabi T-A to edge slightly higher-ranked Khimky (6-5) by 1 point 80-79. Maccabi T-A's 6th position in group F has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 6-5 record is not bad and everything may still change. Hickman is a newcomer at Maccabi T-A and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 13.7ppg (#9). He also recorded 3.0 assists per game.

The third best performed player last round was Australian Nathan Jawai (208-F/C-86) of top-ranked FCB Regal. Jawai scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a key player of FCB Regal, leading his team to a 86-61 easy win against the lower-ranked Besiktas (#8, 0-11). Many experts and fans count FCB Regal as a contender for championship title. Another victory and another confirmation that they may be right. Just look at their record: 10 victories and only one lost games. They are currently at the very top of the standings in group F. Jawai has a very solid season. In 21 games in Euroleague he scored 7.3ppg. He also has 4.7rpg and FGP: 66.7%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jordan Farmar (188-PG-86) of Anadolu Efes - 29 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Bostjan Nachbar (207-PF-80) of Brose Bask. - 24 points and 2 rebounds
6. Jonas Maciulis (199-F/G-85) of Panathinaikos - 16 points and 6 rebounds
7. Ante Tomic (217-C-87) of FCB Regal - 11 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Kyle Hines (198-F-86) of Olympiacos - 10 points and 11 rebounds
9. Dimitris Diamantidis (196-G-80) of Panathinaikos - 8 points and 9 assists
10. Casey Jacobsen (198-G/F-81) of Brose Bask. - 12 points, 4 rebounds and 8 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)
