Power forward Svenja Greunke (188-F/C-89) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Marburg and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 13. The 27-year old power forward had a double-double of 23 points and twelve rebounds, while her team beat Hannover (#6, 6-7) 75-69. Marburg maintains the 4th position in German DBBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Marburg will need more victories to improve their 8-5 record. In the team's last game Greunke had a remarkable 62.5% from 2-point range. It's her second year at Marburg and it's hard to imagine this team without her. Svenja Greunke averages this season 13.0ppg and 7.3rpg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old Canadian forward Kim Pierre-Louis (183-F-93) of Donau-Ries. Pierre-Louis impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 23 points and 10 rebounds. It was enough for Donau-Ries to edge the lower-ranked BG 89 Avides (#12, 3-10) by 5 points 63-58. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. But Donau-Ries managed to improve slightly their position in standings taking 9th place. Her team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-8 record. Pierre-Louis is a newcomer at Donau-Ries and it seems she did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.2ppg (#2). She also registered 8.9 boards per game.
The third best performed player last round was American Sheylani Peddy (170-PG-88, agency: LBM Management) of second-ranked Wasserburg. Peddy showcased her all-around game by recording 23 points, seven rebounds and four assists in the last round. Despite Peddy's great performance Wasserburg lost 72-75 to #1 ranked Keltern. But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Wasserburg had another "accident". It may be a crucial game and cause dropping from the group of top ranked teams. The record is still good, but 2nd lost game is hopefully really an accident. Peddy's teammates are also very good. That's why having such high stats is even more impressive. Peddy has a great season in Germany. After 13 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 5.0apg (best passer). She also has 4.3spg and FGP: 64.8%.

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)
