Guatemalan Liga Metropolitana round 4 best performance: Helmut Esquivel (by Interperformances) - Aug 4, 2018

Helmut
Esquivel
Center Helmut Esquivel (196-C) had a great game in the last round for top-ranked Club Force, receiving a Interperformances Liga Metropolitana Player of the Week award for round 4.
The player had a double-double of 16 points and 13 rebounds, while his team beat La Villa (#8, 0-2), the league's bottom-ranked team 69-55. It allowed Club Force to consolidate first place in the Guatemalan Liga Metropolitana. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. But it's just the very beginning of the season and Club Force won both games without losing any. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. It's Esquivel's second year at Club Force and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Helmut Esquivel has solid league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (2nd best: 13.0rpg) and averages impressive 3.0bpg,3.0spg and 70.0% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 34-year old Salvadorean Ricardo Amaya (191-G-84) of league's second-best ELOHIM. Amaya had a very good evening with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course he led ELOHIM to another comfortable win 93-75 over Amatitlan (#7, 0-2) being unquestionably team leader. ELOHIM's second position in the standings has not changed. His team has extremely good start of the season. They won both games so far. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Amaya is well-known at ELOHIM and is a proven leader in his second season with the team.

Third on the list of top players last round was Jose Valenzuela (95) of Amatitlan (#7). Valenzuela showcased his all-around game by recording 17 points, ten rebounds and four assists in the last round. Despite Valenzuela's great performance Amatitlan lost 75-93 to the league's current leader ELOHIM (#2, 2-0). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Amatitlan can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 2 games. Too bad for Valenzuela he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. The season just started for Valenzuela as he played only first game. But it already looks like he can be team's leader.

Other top performing players last week:
4. David Monterroso (180-PG-79) of ELOHIM - 20 points and 10 rebounds
5. Kevin Garcia (96) of Club Force - 10 points, 14 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Walter Gasparico (89) of Amatitlan - 13 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Walter Ramirez (97) of Amatitlan - 21 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Joshua Sandoval (98) of Club Force - 7 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Marcelo Arriola (168-PG-98) of ELOHIM - 9 points and 2 assists

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.
