Juan
Miguel
Suero
Dominican Rep. Shooting guard Juan Miguel Suero (198-SG-93) had a great game in the last round for Gaiteros, receiving a Latinbasket.com Player of the Week award for round 4.
The 23-year old player was the main contributor (43 points, six rebounds and two assists) to as his team Gaiteros is placed at 3rd position in their group in Venezuelan LPB. Gaiteros is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. But it was their 4th lost game this season out of 6 games. Suero just recently signed at Gaiteros, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Juan Miguel Suero has solid league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 25.7ppg. Suero

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old American John Flowers (200-F-89) of league's leader Cocodrilos. Flowers had a very good evening with 23 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course he led Cocodrilos to another comfortable win outscoring Toros (#5, 0-4) 90-66. Of course Cocodrilos still keep Western Conference's top spot. He plays for the best team in the league and Cocodrilos managed to win all 8 games keeping a perfect record. Flowers is one of the most experienced players at Cocodrilos and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was international center Gregory Echenique (206-C-90, agency: Pensack Sports) of Guaros (#4). Echenique scored 16 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Guaros, leading his team to a 81-57 easy win against #2 ranked Trotamundos in a game of the week. Guaros can only dream about fighting for top spots in Western Conference. They have rather bad season and 1-3 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Echenique he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Echenique has individually a great season in Venezuela. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.5rpg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Sani Sakakini (204-C-88) of Trotamundos - 25 points and 6 rebounds
5. Zach Graham (198-G-89) of Guaros - 20 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Kyle Fuller (185-PG-92) of Toros - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Windi Graterol (204-C-86) of Bucaneros - 19 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Luis Julio (201-F/C-80) of Panteras - 20 points and 8 rebounds
9. Marcus Melvin (206-F-82) of Guaiqueries - 18 points and 7 rebounds
10. Ricardo Powell (199-F-83) of Trotamundos - 25 points, 6 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)
