Marco Chacon
International Power forward Marco Chacon (192-PF-96) had a very impressive game in the last round for Grecia, receiving a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 5 (Second Stage).
The 22-year old player was the main contributor (31 points, eight rebounds and two assists) to as his team The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Grecia moved-up to the 4th position in Costa Rican LBS. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked at the very bottom. They already lost 5 games and recorded just one victory. In the team's last game Chacon had a remarkable 100.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Grecia's top player in his first season with the team. Marco Chacon has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (2nd best: 20.3ppg), rebounds (7th best: 8.8rpg) and assists (8th best: 2.3apg).

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old former international Jose Solano (189-SF-91) of U Costa Rica. Solano had a very good evening with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. It was enough for U Costa Rica to edge slightly lower-ranked Grecia (#4, 1-5) 84-83. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. U Costa Rica consolidated its place in top 3 of the standings. 4 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory U Costa Rica managed to get this Second Stage. Solano is one of the most experienced players at U Costa Rica and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was international forward Rohel Wilson (197-F/C-89) of league's top team Escazu. Wilson scored 15 points and grabbed fifteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Wilson's great performance Escazu lost 53-58 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. Escazu had another "accident". It may be a crucial game and cause dropping from the group of top ranked teams. The record is still good, but 1st lost game is hopefully really an accident. Wilson's teammates are also very good. That's why having such high stats is even more impressive. Wilson has a great season in Costa Rica. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 12.3ppg (7th best) and rebounds with 10.3rpg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Mario Bogantes (175-PG-88) of Grecia - 11 points, 4 rebounds and 10 assists
5. Jerson Harris (196-F/G-88) of Grecia - 21 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Stephan Campbell (197-PF-98) of Grecia - 12 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Jose Palma (PG-91) of U Costa Rica - 15 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Juan Vargas (C-92) of U Costa Rica - 16 points and 5 rebounds
9. Jeffney Anderson (208-C-83) of ARBA - 11 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Carlos Quesada (198-C-85) of Escazu - 15 points and 8 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 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)
