Earlysia
Marchbanks
-year old Earlysia Marchbanks (180-SF, agency: Interperformances) had an amazing evening in the last round for Kerava and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 36.
She had a double-double of 32 points and 18 rebounds, while her team was edged out by BC Nokia (#10, 5-25) 79-77. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on the top of the standings. Kerava moved-up to the 9th position in the Finnish SM-sarja. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 21 games and recorded just nine victories. In the team's last game Marchbanks had a remarkable 64.7% from 2-point range. She turned to be Kerava's top player in her first season with the team. Oregon State University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Marchbanks is in league's top in points (4th best: 19.0ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 13.8rpg) and averages solid 2.5spg.

Second best performed player last round was Jelena Reshetko (184-C/F-86) of top-ranked Catz. She is Russian in her 8th season at Catz. In the last game Reshetko recorded impressive double-double of 21 points and 16 rebounds. Of course she lead Catz to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked PeKa (#2, 25-5) 81-59. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Catz consolidated its place in the very top position of the standings. Her team belongs to top of the standings with 28-2 record and is considered one of the main candidates for the league title. Reshetko is one of the most experienced players at Catz and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to swingman Jasmin Holliday (182-G/F-90) of Huima (#7). Holliday scored 23 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). Despite Holliday's great performance Huima lost 68-93 to the higher-ranked Honka (#4, 18-12). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Huima needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 15 victories and 15 lost games. Holliday has a great season in Finland. After 30 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.0ppg (9th best). She also has 2.2spg and 1.0bpg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Phebe Smith (183-F) of HyPo - 22 points and 18 rebounds
5. Jordan Murphree (183-G-87) of Honka - 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists
6. Kenya McBee (192-C-83) of ToPo - 28 points, 15 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Nina Hyvarinen (175-F-80) of BC Nokia - 27 points and 10 rebounds
8. Alberta Auguste (180-F-85) of BC Nokia - 15 points, 14 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Brittany Hedderson (175-G-90) of TuRi - 25 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Melissa Jeltema (175-G-88) of Honka - 27 points and 8 rebounds

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)
