Vaughn
Panamanian Forward Dangelo Vaughn (192-F-80) put on an amazing game in the last round for Villa Nueva, receiving a Latinbasket.com Liga Metropolitana Player of the Week award for round 7.
The 37-year old player had a double-double of 20 points and 17 rebounds, while his team beat URL (#10, 0-7), the league's bottom-ranked team 72-59. Villa Nueva is placed at 3rd position in Guatemalan Liga Metropolitana. They would have been even better if they did not have these two lost games earlier in Regular Season. Villa Nueva will need more victories to improve their 5-2 record. Vaughn turned to be Villa Nueva's top player in his first season with the team. Dangelo Vaughn has solid league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (4th best: 9.2rpg).

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old former international swingman Miguel Gonzalez (187-G/F-90) of league's leader USAC. Gonzalez had a very good evening with a double-double of 21 points and 10 assists. Of course he led USAC to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Bantrab (#6, 3-5) 73-48. Of course USAC still keep the league's top spot. He plays for the best team in the league and USAC managed to win all 8 games keeping a perfect record. Gonzalez is a newcomer at USAC, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.1ppg (#8). His other stats are also decent: 9.0rpg and 5.4apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was center Helmut Esquivel (196-C) of Club Force (#4). Esquivel showcased his all-around game by recording 13 points, ten rebounds and four assists in the last round. He was a key player of Club Force, leading his team to a 70-66 win against slightly lower-ranked Bantrab (#6, 3-5). Club Force needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 5 victories and 2 lost games. Esquivel has a great season in Guatemala. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.8ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 11.8rpg (#1 in league).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Luis Menendez (180-G-95) of USAC - 25 points and 9 rebounds
5. Enrique Samayoa (193-F-82) of Villa Nueva - 15 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
6. David Goddard (185-G-89) of Villa Nueva - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Vinicio Enriquez) of Villa Nueva - 18 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists

9. Luis Perez (191-F-97) of URL - 15 points and 11 rebounds
10. Kevin Garcia (96) of Club Force - 9 points, 9 rebounds and 3 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)
