Gregory
Echenique
International Center Gregory Echenique (206-C-90, agency: Pensack Sports) had a great game in the last round for top-ranked Guaros 2, receiving a Latinbasket.com LNB Player of the Week award for round 4.
The 27-year old player had a double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds, while his team beat Comuna (#4, 3-3) 95-85. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Guaros 2 to consolidate first place in the Venezuelan LNB. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Guaros 2 already had a very good start winning all 4 without losing a single one. Echenique turned to be Guaros 2's top player in his first season with the team. Former Creighton University star has very solid stats this year. Echenique is in league's top in rebounds (2nd best: 9.7rpg) and averages impressive 1.3bpg and 68.4% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was young Enderso Ramos (185-G-95) of Atleticos. Ramos had a very good evening with 27 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Atleticos lost that game 72-86 to the higher-ranked Aduaneros (#3, 3-3). Atleticos are still at the very bottom. 6 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Ramos is a newcomer at Atleticos, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 14.7ppg (#8). He also recorded 4.0 assists per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Guaros 2's star - former international swingman Jose Vargas (195-G/F-82, agency: Pro Sports). Vargas scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds. He was another key player of Guaros 2, helping his team with a 95-85 win against #4 ranked Comuna in a game of the week. Guaros 2 started extremely well this year. They recorded 4 victories without losing a single game. Vargas turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Vargas has a great season in Venezuela. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.3ppg (best scorer), rebounds with 6.8rpg (7th best) and assists with 3.0apg (8th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Anthony Perez (206-F-93) of Cangrejeros - 21 points and 4 rebounds
5. Nestor Colmenares (203-PF-87) of Guaros 2 - 19 points and 4 rebounds
6. Pedro Chourio (186-PG-90) of Aduaneros - 17 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Leonardo Berroteran (192-F/G-81) of Comuna - 12 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Christian Marquez) of Atleticos - 13 points and 8 rebounds
9. Lenin Lopez (198-F-91) of Metropolitanos - 15 points and 7 rebounds
10. Jesus Martinez (206-F/C-86) of Aduaneros - 10 points and 8 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)
