American Forward Tyren Johnson (201-F-88) put on an amazing game in the last round for top-ranked Blois, receiving a Interperformances ProB Player of the Week award for round 2.
The 31-year old player was the main contributor (33 points, five rebounds and three assists) to his team’s victory, helping them to edge out Fos-Provence (#17, 0-2), the league’s bottom-ranked team 101-98. It allowed Blois to take over top position in the French ProB. But it’s just the very beginning of the season and Blois won both games without losing any. It’s too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team’s last game Johnson had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at Blois, through which he has constantly improved. Former University Louisiana at Lafayette star has very solid stats this year. Johnson is in league’s top in points (3rd best: 17.0ppg) and averages impressive 4.0spg and 70.0% FGP.

The second best player in last round’s games was 30-year old American Caleb Walker (194-G-89) of Fos-Provence. Walker had a very good evening with 34 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Fos-Provence was edged by Blois (2-0) 101-98. 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. Walker is a newcomer at Fos-Provence, but is already one of team’s top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.5ppg (#4).

Third on the list of top players last round was guard Mehdy-Sofian Ngouama (188-PG-95) of Souffel (#5). Ngouama showcased his all-around game by recording 16 points, five rebounds and seven assists in the last round. He was a key player of Souffel, leading his team to a 81-59 easy win against Saint-Chamond (1-1). Souffel needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 1 victory and 1 lost game. The season just started for Ngouama as he played only first game. But it already looks like he can be team’s leader.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Stephane Gombauld (202-PF-97) of Blois – 19 points and 4 rebounds
5. Terry Smith (185-PG-86) of Nantes – 25 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Ruphin Kayembe (201-F/C-92) of Evreux – 20 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Tyran De Lattibeaudiere (201-SF-91) of Denain – 20 points and 8 rebounds
8. Rene Rougeau (198-F/G-86) of Nantes – 17 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Jean-Victor Traore (203-PF-85) of Lille – 9 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Marquis Wright (185-PG-95) of Denain – 15 points, 2 rebounds and 9 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 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)
