  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Hector Chur
Forward Hector Chur (179-F) had a great game in the last round for second-ranked Club Force, receiving a Interperformances Liga Metropolitana Player of the Week award for round 19.
The player was the main contributor (34 points, five rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to outclass URL (#9, 1-7) with 41-point margin 97-56. Club Force is placed at 2nd position in Guatemalan Liga Metropolitana. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Club Force will need more victories to improve their 7-3 record. In the team's last game Chur had a remarkable seven three-pointers out of 14 attempts. He turned to be Club Force's top player in his first season with the team. Hector Chur has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (6th best: 19.8ppg) and averages impressive 52.5% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was another Club Force's star - 18-year old Helmut Esquivel (196-C). Esquivel had a very good evening with 18 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Of course together with Chur he helped Club Force with another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked URL (#9, 1-7) 97-56. This victory allowed Club Force to move up to second position in the standings. His team's 7-3 record is not bad at all. Esquivel is well-known at Club Force and together with Hector Chur are proven team's leaders.

Third on the list of top players last round was guard Luis Menendez (179-G-95) of URL (#9). Menendez scored 19 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Menendez's great performance URL lost 68-74 to the higher-ranked GMS (#5, 4-4). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. URL can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-7 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Menendez he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Menendez has individually a great season in Guatemala. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.3rpg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jorge Castaneda (189-F-82) of GMS - 17 points and 5 rebounds
5. Luis Perez (185-G-95) of URL - 13 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Anthony Guerra (178-PG-97) of GMS - 12 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Kevin Garcia (96) of Club Force - 6 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Joshua Sandoval (98) of Club Force - 12 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Erick Palma (80) of GMS - 14 points, 8 rebounds 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.
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)
