AMAURYS RIPOOL

Experienced Naturalized Dominican Rep. Forward Amaurys Ripool (196-F-86) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league's second-best ARBA and that's him to receive a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 3 (Second Stage).
The 32-year old forward had a double-double of 26 points and fifteen rebounds, while his team outclassed Grecia (#3, 1-3) with 31-point margin 85-54. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. ARBA maintains the 2nd position in Costa Rican LBS. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this stage. ARBA will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. In the team's last game Ripool had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He has many years of experience at ARBA, through which he has constantly improved. Ripool has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (2nd best: 21.0ppg), assists (8th best: 2.0apg) and averages solid 61.5% FGP and 53.3% from behind 3-point line.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was another ARBA's star - 27-year old American guard Dijon Farr (201-G-91). Farr impressed basketball fans with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course together with Ripool he helped ARBA with another comfortable win outscoring Grecia (1-3) 85-54. The Second Stage is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot. Let's wait for the next round. Farr is a newcomer at ARBA and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.5ppg (#5). He also registered 7.5 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was Stephan Campbell (197-PF-98) of Grecia (#3). Campbell scored 9 points and grabbed twenty three rebounds (!!!). Despite Campbell's great performance Grecia lost 54-85 to #2 ranked ARBA. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Grecia can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-3 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Campbell he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Campbell has individually a great season in Costa Rica. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 11.0rpg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Isaac Conejo (182-G-94) of ARBA - 4 points, 6 rebounds and 11 assists
5. Rohel Wilson (197-F/C-89) of Escazu - 17 points and 5 rebounds
6. Georgio Milligan (187-PG-90) of Escazu - 9 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
7. David Shedden (197-F-95) of ARBA - 12 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Alonso Sanchez (174-PG-85) of Escazu - 10 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Juan Cordero (98) of U Costa Rica - 18 points and 7 rebounds

The Player of the week is selected 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)

The Player of the Week awards are presented by Interperformances. Interperformances is a full-service agency specializing in the representation of professional athletes the world-over. With more than forty-eight years of experience, INTERPERFORMANCES is well known to all professional teams and clubs. General Managers trust and rely on our opinions and recommendations.
