Erick Palma
38-year old Erick Palma (80) had an amazing evening in the last round for GMS and receives a Interperformances Liga Metropolitana Player of the Week award for round 11.
He had a double-double of 31 points and 11 rebounds, while his team beat La Villa (#10, 0-4), the league's bottom-ranked team 74-65. GMS is placed at 7th position in Guatemalan Liga Metropolitana. GMS is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 1-2 record. In the team's last game Palma had a remarkable 73.3% from 2-point range. He turned to be GMS's top player in his first season with the team. Palma has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (7th best: 18.3ppg) and averages solid 60.7% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Gilberto Escobar (F) of Pampichi. He is a forward in his first season at Pampichi. In the last game Escobar recorded impressive 31 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Pampichi lost that game 58-68 to slightly higher-ranked URL (#8, 1-2). This loss caused Pampichi to drop to 9th position in the standings. 3 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory Pampichi managed to get this year. Escobar is a newcomer at Pampichi and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 19.0ppg (#5). He also registered 6.3 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Luis Menendez (179-G-95) of URL (#8). Menendez scored 20 points and grabbed twelve rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of URL, leading his team to a 68-58 win against slightly lower-ranked Pampichi (#9, 1-3). The chances of URL not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 2 games, recording just one victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Menendez could try to bring URL's a little bit higher in the standings. Menendez has individually a great season in Guatemala. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 9.3rpg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Anthony Guerra (178-PG-97) of GMS - 14 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists
5. Mynor Maldonado (F-95) of La Villa - 12 points and 10 rebounds
6. Sergio Hurtarte (188-G/F-90) of La Villa - 13 points and 11 rebounds
7. Rudy Morales (99) of URL - 23 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Irving Calderon (93) of URL - 12 points

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.
