23-year old guard Thomas Ble (185-G-89) had an amazing evening in the last round for second-ranked Centrum and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 21. He had a double-double of 33 points and 10 rebounds, while his team beat Froya Basket (#4, 9-10) 83-72. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Centrum maintains the 2nd position in Norwegian league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Centrum will need more victories to improve their 13-6 record. In the team's last game Ble had a remarkable 55.6% from 2-point range. He turned to be Centrum's top player in his first season with the team. Ble has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (8th best: 18.4ppg), rebounds (8th best: 6.3rpg) and averages solid 52.4% FGP. Worth to mention Ble played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.
Second best performed player last round was Ronald Timus (197-G/F-84) of Ammerud Bskt. He is American swingman in his first season at Ammerud Bskt. In the last game Timus recorded impressive double-double of 28 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as Ammerud Bskt lost that game 79-102 to the higher-ranked Froya Basket (#4, 9-10). Ammerud Bskt are still at the very bottom. 16 lost games are too many comparing to just three victories Ammerud Bskt managed to get this year. Timus is a newcomer at Ammerud Bskt and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 19.4ppg (#5). His other stats are also decent: 7.2rpg and 3.2apg.
Third place about best performers goes to another Centrum's star - forward Marko Lepovic (194-F-94). Lepovic showcased his all-around game by recording 11 points, fifteen rebounds (!!!) and four assists in the last round. He was another key player of Centrum, helping his team with a 83-72 win against #4 ranked Froya Basket in a game of the week. Centrum needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 13 victories and 6 lost games. Lepovic has a great season in Norway. After 18 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 6.8rpg (7th best).

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)
