Experienced American Andy Panko (203-F-77, agency: BeoBasket) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's leader Fuerza Regia and that's him to receive a Latinbasket.com LNBP Player of the Week award for round 27. The 39-year old forward had the game-high 34 points adding six rebounds and two assists for Fuerza Regia in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Toros (#3, 16-11) with 33-point margin 92-59. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Fuerza Regia to consolidate first place in the Mexican LNBP. Fuerza Regia has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 27-1. In the team's last game Panko had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range and got six three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Fuerza Regia's top player in his first season with the team. Andy Panko averages this season 17.4ppg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was -year old Canadian forward Grandy Glaze (204-F) of Correcaminos. Glaze impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 25 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Correcaminos lost that game 89-101 to the higher-ranked Barreteros (#6, 11-16). Correcaminos are still at the very bottom. 21 lost games are too many comparing to just six victories Correcaminos managed to get this year. Glaze is a newcomer at Correcaminos and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.
The third best performed player last round was American Paul Marigney (192-G-82) of Barreteros (#6). Marigney showcased his all-around game by recording 28 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the last round. He was a key player of Barreteros, leading his team to a 101-89 win against the lower-ranked Correcaminos (#10, 6-21). The chances of Barreteros ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 16 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Marigney could help Barreteros to bring them higher in the standings. Marigney has a very solid season. In 27 games in Mexico he scored 17.2ppg. He also has 5.7rpg, 4.0apg, FGP: 53.2% and 3PT: 42.7%.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Justin Keenan (202-F/C-88) of Soles - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists 5. Irvin Avalos (201-F) of Santos - 20 points and 3 rebounds 6. Carl Jones (180-PG-91) of Barreteros - 19 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists 7. Wayne Chism (206-PF-87) of Garzas - 21 points and 9 rebounds 8. Cesar Cortes (200-F/C-81) of Fuerza Regia - 17 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists 9. B.J. West (211-F-89) of Santos - 17 points and 10 rebounds 10. Fernando Benitez (204-F/C-89) of Panteras - 16 points and 5 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)

Club Atletico Olimpia Montevideo (LUB) added to their roster experienced 35-year old American swingman Dwayne Mitchell (196-82, college: La-Lafayette). He played last summer at Zonkeys de Tijuana in Mexican CIBACOPA. In 32 games he recorded very impressive stats: 17.6ppg, 5.5rpg, 4.8apg (top 4) and 1.7spg (in top 5). Mitchell helped them to make it to the semifinals. A very spectacular season in his career as he was voted to Mexican CIBACOPA All-Star Game. He also played that season for Lobos UAD Mazatlan (also in CIBACOPA) where in 20 games he averaged remarkable 19.1ppg, 4.9rpg and 3.6apg. Great season indeed as he was voted to Mexican CIBACOPA All-Star Game. In 2006 Mitchell was drafted by Yakama Sun Kings (CBA) in second round (20th overall). He attended University Louisiana at Lafayette and it is his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball. The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Mitchell was voted Eurobasket.com All-Israeli League Player of the Year and Eurobasket.com All-Israeli League Import Player of the Year back in 2011. He is quite experienced player. Mitchell's career allowed him to visit four different continents, while he played in eight different countries. Mitchell tasted the life as pro basketball player in Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America. He has played previously professionally in France (Paris-Levallois), Germany, Sweden (KFUM Jamtland), Ukraine (Mykolaiv), Venezuela (Bucaneros), Israel (Maccabi Rishon), South Korea (SK Knights) and D-League (Los Angeles D-Fenders, Iowa Energy and Westchester Knicks). Mitchell is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at Olimpia. On Mitchell:
A very athletic perimetral player, who can easily go inside to finish. Thanks to great 1-vs-1 skills, can beat any opponent, but sometimes plays out of control. Can spend time in the 2 and 3 positions, needs to improve his FT accuracy, because he gains lots of fouls and he's not able to "capitalize" them all.
