Isaiah Swann
31-year old point guard Isaiah Swann (188-PG-85) had an amazing evening in the last round for Marinos and receives a Player of the Week award for round 6.
He had the game-high 27 points adding seven rebounds and four assists for Marinos in his team's victory, helping them to beat Guaros (#4, 2-4) 99-88. Marinos maintains the 4th position in their group in Venezuelan league. Marinos is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 3-5 record. In the team's last game Swann had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range. He just recently signed at Marinos, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Isaiah Swann averages this season 14.8ppg.

Second best performed player last round was Juan Guerrero (201-F-93, agency: Basket Management Solutions) of Toros. He is Dominican Rep. forward in his first season at Toros. In the last game Guerrero recorded impressive double-double of 30 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Toros lost that game 86-98 to slightly higher-ranked Gaiteros (#3, 3-5). Toros managed to keep the same 5th spot in Western Conference. 6 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories Toros managed to get this year. Guerrero is one of the most experienced players at Toros and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 17.8ppg (#6). He also registered 8.1 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to center Maurice Sutton (211-C-89) of league's leader Cocodrilos. Sutton scored 25 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Cocodrilos, leading his team to a 94-69 easy win against #3 ranked Guaiqueries in a game of the week. Many experts and fans count Cocodrilos as a contender for championship title. Another victory and another confirmation that they may be right. Just look at their record: 11 victories and only one lost game. They are currently at the very top of the standings in Eastern Conference. Sutton has a great season in Venezuela. After 12 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.3rpg (3rd best). He also has 1.8bpg and FGP: 53.0%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ricardo Powell (199-F-83) of Trotamundos - 29 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Axiers Sucre (199-F-78) of Gigantes - 20 points and 12 rebounds
6. Al Thornton (203-F-83) of Gaiteros - 27 points and 11 rebounds
7. Jordan Hamilton (201-G/F-90) of Bucaneros - 17 points and 16 rebounds
8. Julian Vaughn (208-C-88) of Gaiteros - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Juan Miguel Suero (198-SG-93) of Gaiteros - 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Trey Gilder (206-PF-85) of Panteras - 22 points, 7 rebounds and 2 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)
