30-year old power forward Suleiman Braimoh (203-F/C-89) had a great game in the last round for league’s best team H.Jerusalem and receives a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 4.
He had the game-high 33 points adding six rebounds and three assists for H.Jerusalem in his team’s victory, helping them to crush Anwil (#5, 1-3) with 18-point margin 112-94. It allowed H.Jerusalem to consolidate first place in the Basketball Champions League. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but H.Jerusalem already had a very good start winning all 4 without losing a single one. In the team’s last game Braimoh had a remarkable 100.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be H.Jerusalem’s top player in his first season with the team. Rice University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Braimoh is in league’s top in points (8th best: 17.8ppg) and averages solid 1.5bpg,84.6% FGP and 45.5% from behind 3-point line.

Second best performed player last round was Nicolas de Jong (210-C-88) of Pau-Lacq-Orthez. He is Dutch center in his first season at Pau-Lacq-Orthez. In the last game de Jong recorded impressive 35 points and 4 rebounds. It was enough for Pau-Lacq-Orthez to edge the higher-ranked Burgos (#4, 2-2) by 4 points 82-78. Pau-Lacq-Orthez’s 8th position in the standings has not changed. 3 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory Pau-Lacq-Orthez managed to get this year. de Jong is a newcomer at Pau-Lacq-Orthez and quickly became one of team’s most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Chris Wright (185-PG-89) of Torun (#7). Wright got into 30-points club by scoring exactly 30 points in the last round. He went also for six assists. Despite Wright’s great performance Torun lost 95-113 to the higher-ranked Sassari (#3, 3-1). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Torun can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-3 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Wright has individually a great season in Basketball Champions League. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league’s leaders in points with 20.7ppg (3rd best) and assists with 7.0apg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Marco Spissu (182-G-95) of Sassari – 22 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists
5. Dwayne Evans (201-F-92) of Sassari – 29 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Lahaou Konate (196-SG-91) of Tenerife – 17 points and 8 rebounds

10. Moustapha Fall (218-C-92) of Turk Telekom – 13 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists

The Player of the week is selected 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 fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

First defeat of group’s leader Turkish Turk Telekom (3-1) against fourth ranked Spanish La ICL Manresa (3-1) 80-75 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Turk Telekom. It was a key game for the top position in Group A. The hosts trailed by 5 points at the halftime before their 46-36 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. La ICL Manresa looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Italian point guard Frankie Ferrari (185-95, college: USF) who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 7 assists. American guard Ryan Toolson (193-85, college: Utah Valley) contributed with 19 points for the winners. Muhammed Baygul (191-92) replied with 20 points for Turk Telekom. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. La ICL Manresa keeps a position of Group A leader, which they share with Turk Telekom and Sassari. Turk Telekom will play next round against Oostende trying to make it back to the top of the standings. La ICL Manresa will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Hapoel Holon on the road.
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Czech ERA Nymburk (3-1) at the home court. Hosts were defeated by Spanish CB Canarias (4-0) 78-68.

CB Canarias will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.

An interesting game was also home defeat of 4th ranked Greek Peristeri GS in a game in Athens versus Russian BC Nizhny Novgorod (#3) 74-71. The winners were led by Brandon Brown who scored that evening 21 points. Even 21 points and 5 rebounds by Scoochie Smith did not help to save the game for Peristeri GS. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game. BC Nizhny Novgorod maintains third position in Group C with 3-1 record having just seven point less than leader Bakken. Peristeri GS at the other side dropped to the fifth place with two games lost. BC Nizhny Novgorod will meet at home league’s second-placed ERA Nymburk in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

Muhammed Baygul (191-SG-92) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league’s leader Turk Telekom and that’s him to receive a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 3.
The 27-year old shooting guard had the game-high 21 points adding six rebounds and five assists for Turk Telekom in his team’s victory, helping them to beat Lietkabelis (#8, 0-3), the league’s bottom-ranked team 91-77. It allowed Turk Telekom to consolidate first place in the Basketball Champions League. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Turk Telekom already had a very good start winning all 3 without losing a single one. Baygul turned to be Turk Telekom’s top player in his first season with the team. Muhammed Baygul averages just after three games 12.7ppg and 4.3apg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round’s games was 32-year old Nigerian power forward Alade Aminu (207-F/C-87) of Torun. Aminu impressed basketball fans with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Bad luck as Torun lost that game 105-122 to Holon (1-2). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let’s wait for the next round. Aminu is a newcomer at Torun and despite he is not a team leader yet, every game he becomes more reliable player. Hopefully performances like the last one will happen more often.

The third best performed player last round was American Latavius Williams (203-F/C-89) of Holon (#6). Williams scored 18 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Holon, leading his team to a 122-105 easy win against Torun (1-2). The chances of Holon not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 2 games, recording just one victory. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Williams could try to bring Holon’s a little bit higher in the standings. Williams has individually a great season in Basketball Champions League. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league’s leaders in rebounds with 8.3rpg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Darral Willis (205-F-96) of N.Novgorod – 21 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Chris Wright (185-PG-89) of Torun – 25 points, 3 rebounds and 10 assists
6. Jaime Smith (190-PG-89) of Bandirma – 29 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Dyshawn Pierre (198-F-93) of Sassari – 15 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Shaquielle McKissic (196-SF-90) of Besiktas – 20 points and 3 assists
9. Derek Needham (180-PG-90) of Mornar Bar – 20 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists
10. James Feldeine (193-SG-88) of H.Jerusalem – 25 points and 3 rebounds

The Player of the week is selected 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)
