Quinnel
Brown
American Quinnel Brown (198-F-83) had a very impressive game in the last round for Halifax R. and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 20.
The 29-year old forward had a double-double of 19 points and twelve rebounds, while his team beat St.John M.R. (11-12) 102-89. Halifax R. is placed at 4th position in NBLCanada NBL Canada. Halifax R. is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 11-12 record. Brown turned to be Halifax R.'s top player in his first season with the team. Auburn University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Brown is in league's top in rebounds (6th best: 7.7rpg) and averages solid 51.0% FGP and 44.4% from behind 3-point line.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old Ghanian guard Papa Oppong (193-G-87) of Oshawa P.. Oppong impressed basketball fans with 21 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists. It was enough for Oshawa P. to edge the lower-ranked Moncton M. (#6, 11-15) by 2 points 102-100. Oshawa P.'s 3rd position in the standings has not changed. His team's 12-9 record is not bad at all. Oppong is a newcomer at Oshawa P. and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. Eastern Kentucky University alumni Oppong played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which is considered top summer league for players who want to play basketball overseas.

The third best performed player last round was American Oliver McNally (190-G) of Moncton M. (#6). McNally showcased his all-around game by recording 19 points, six rebounds and six assists in the last round. Despite McNally's great performance Moncton M. lost 100-102 to the higher-ranked Oshawa P. (#3, 12-9). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Moncton M. ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 15 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, McNally could help Moncton M. to bring them higher in the standings. McNally has a great season in NBL. After 25 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 7.0apg (2nd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Elvin Mims (196-F-79) of London L. - 16 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Hillary Haley (198-G-88) of Halifax R. - 15 points and 8 rebounds
6. Larry Diamond (188-G-86) of Oshawa P. - 18 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Anthony Anderson (180-G-81) of St.John M.R. - 14 points, 4 rebounds and 9 assists
8. Jeremy Williams (200-SF-87) of London L. - 15 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Sylvania Watkins (206-F-84) of Moncton M. - 9 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Cedric Moodie (187-G-78) of Halifax R. - 20 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists

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)
