American Guard Desmond Holloway (191-G-90) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Pinheiros, receiving a Player of the Week award for round 3 (Second Stage).
The 27-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, two rebounds and five assists) to his team's victory, helping them to outclass Olimpia (#11, 1-2) with 36-point margin 106-70. Each game in Second Stage is important. but the teams lost the distance to top of the standings. Pinheiros is placed at 10th position in Liga SudAmericana. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this stage. Pinheiros will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. In the team's last game Holloway had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He has many years of experience at Pinheiros, through which he has constantly improved. Former Coastal Carolina University star has very solid stats this year. Holloway is in league's top in points (2nd best: 22.7ppg), assists (7th best: 5.0apg) and averages impressive 62.1% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 39-year old Argentinian Javier Martinez (188-G-78) of Olimpia. Martinez had a very good evening with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Bad luck as Olimpia lost that game 70-106 to Pinheiros (2-1). The Second Stage is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Martinez is a newcomer at Olimpia, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was Dominican Rep. guard Rigoberto Mendoza (190-G-92) of Estudiantes C. (#9). Mendoza scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds. Despite Mendoza's great performance Estudiantes C. lost 75-89 to Flamengo (#12, 1-2). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Estudiantes C. needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 2 victories and 1 lost games. Mendoza has a great season in Liga SudAmericana. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.8ppg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Olivinha Rodriguez (203-F-83) of Flamengo - 6 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Ronald Ramon (183-G-86) of Flamengo - 19 points and 3 assists
6. Joao Paulo Batista (205-C/F-81) of Flamengo - 13 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Felipe Ruivo (189-G-98) of Pinheiros - 11 points and 7 assists
8. Cordero Bennett (188-G-88) of Pinheiros - 11 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists
9. Arthur Bernardi (206-F-90) of Pinheiros - 10 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Germerson Barbosa (202-SF-93) of Pinheiros - 17 points and 2 rebounds

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
