23-year old shooting guard Juan Miguel Suero (196-SG-93) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Gaiteros and receives a Player of the Week award for round 3.
He had the game-high 27 points adding eight rebounds and two assists for Gaiteros in his team's victory, helping them to beat Trotamundos (#2, 3-1) 73-65. Gaiteros is placed at 3rd position in their group in Venezuelan league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 3 games and recorded just one victory. In the team's last game Suero had a remarkable three three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He just recently signed at Gaiteros, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Suero has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 23.0ppg. Suero is in league's top in assists (6th best: 3.3apg) and averages solid 51.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Axiers Sucre (199-F-78) of league's second-best Gigantes. He is former international forward in his first season at Gigantes. In the last game Sucre recorded impressive double-double of 23 points and 16 rebounds. It was enough for Gigantes to edge Marinos (0-2) by 3 points 84-81. His team has extremely good start of the season. They won both games so far. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Sucre is a newcomer at Gigantes and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to center Sani Sakakini (204-C-88) of league's second-best Trotamundos. Sakakini showcased his all-around game by recording 26 points, nine rebounds and four assists in the last round. He was a key player of Trotamundos, leading his team to a 89-76 easy win against #3 ranked Gaiteros in a game of the week. Trotamundos needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in Western Conference. Their record at this point is 3 victories and 1 lost games. Sakakini has a great season in Venezuela. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.3ppg (7th best), rebounds with 9.7rpg (2nd best) and assists with 3.0apg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Devan Downey (175-G-87) of Guaiqueries - 25 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Michael Flores (192-G-85) of Guaiqueries - 23 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Juan Herrera (197-F-81) of Marinos - 21 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists
7. John Flowers (200-F-89) of Cocodrilos - 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Lazar Hayward (225-SF-86) of Guaros - 19 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Cesar Silva (190-G/F-81) of Guaiqueries - 27 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists
10. Harold Cazorla (175-PG-91) of Gigantes - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 7 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)
