Best players of Latvian LBL round 40 - Apr 15, 2013


POSTED BY:

Justin
Hamilton
American Justin Hamilton (210-C-90) had a very impressive game in the last round for VEF Riga and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 40.
The 22-year old center had a double-double of 23 points and fourteen rebounds, while his team outclassed U18 (#11, 1-19) with 52-point margin 113-61. VEF Riga maintains the 4th position in Latvian LBL. VEF Riga has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 19-1. Hamilton just recently signed at VEF Riga, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Justin Hamilton averages this season 21.8ppg and 9.6rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was another VEF Riga's star - 28-year old former international forward Gatis Jahovics (200-F-84). Jahovics impressed basketball fans with 26 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Of course together with Hamilton he helped VEF Riga with another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked U18 (#11, 1-19) 113-61. VEF Riga's 4th position in the standings has not changed. His team belongs to top of the standings with 19-1 record and is considered one of the main candidates for the league title. Jahovics is one of the most experienced players at VEF Riga and similarly like Justin Hamilton has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Todd O'Brien (213-C-89) of Jekabpils (#3). O'Brien scored 18 points and grabbed fourteen rebounds (!!!). Despite O'Brien's great performance Jekabpils lost 79-86 to #2 ranked Barons kvartals. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing Jekabpils needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 19 victories and 15 lost games. O'Brien has a great season in Latvia. After 34 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 15.7ppg (5th best) and rebounds with 9.5rpg (2nd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Roberts Mednis (204-C-89) of Jurmala - 19 points and 11 rebounds
5. Jamar Diggs (187-G-88) of Barons kvartals - 21 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Keith Chamberlain (204-F/C-87) of Jelgava - 12 points and 9 rebounds
7. Tyler Cain (203-F-88) of Barons kvartals - 11 points and 11 rebounds
8. Arturs Duselis (201-F-89) of Jelgava - 23 points and 2 rebounds
9. Maris Gulbis (202-F-85) of Barons kvartals - 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Ervins Jonats (203-F-91) of Jurmala - 22 points and 6 rebounds

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)
