Sweetney
25-year old swingman Devin Sweetney (198-G/F-87, agency: Pro One Sports) had an amazing evening in the last round for Moncton M. and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 21.
He had the game-high 36 points adding eight rebounds and two assists for Moncton M. in his team's victory, helping them to beat St.John M.R. (#6, 11-13) 116-105. Moncton M. is placed at 4th position in NBLCanada league. Moncton M. 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 12-15 record. In the team's last game Sweetney had a remarkable 87.5% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Moncton M.'s top player in his first season with the team. St.Francis College (PA) graduate has very impressive stats this year. Sweetney is league's best scorer averaging so far 24.3ppg. Sweetney

Second best performed player last round was Jushay Rockett (197-F-84) of Oshawa P.. He is American forward in his first season at Oshawa P.. In the last game Rockett recorded impressive double-double of 25 points and 18 rebounds. Bad luck as Oshawa P. lost that game 109-115 to slightly higher-ranked London L. (#1, 21-2). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Oshawa P. still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 12-10 record is not bad at all. Rockett is a newcomer at Oshawa P. and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Anthony Anderson (180-G-81) of St.John M.R. (#6). Anderson scored 28 points and passed ten assists (!!!). Despite Anderson's great performance St.John M.R. lost 105-116 to slightly higher-ranked Moncton M. (#4, 12-15). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of St.John M.R. ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 13 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Anderson could help St.John M.R. to bring them higher in the standings. Anderson has a great season in NBL. After 24 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.6ppg (2nd best) and assists with 7.0apg (2nd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Isaac Butts (208-C) of Moncton M. - 20 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Elvin Mims (196-F-79) of London L. - 19 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Kevin Loiselle (198-F) of Windsor Exp. - 12 points and 14 rebounds
7. Jermaine Blackburn (200-G/F-83) of London L. - 22 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Nick Okorie (185-PG-88) of Oshawa P. - 20 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists
9. Tim Ellis (193-G-81) of London L. - 18 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Marvin Phillips (201-F-83) of London L. - 16 points and 7 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)
