Loren Woods
American-Lebanese Center Loren Woods (218-C-78) had an amazing evening in the last round for top-ranked Al-Hala, receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 1.
The 39-year old player had a double-double of 33 points and 20 rebounds, while his team edged out Al-Ahli (#8, 0-1), the league's bottom-ranked team 82-80. It allowed Al-Hala to take over top position in the Bahrain Premier League. But it's just the very beginning of the season and Al-Hala won just one (their first) game. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. It's Woods' second year at Al-Hala and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Former University of Arizona star has very solid stats this year. Woods is league's best scorer averaging so far 33.0ppg. Woods is in league's top in rebounds (3rd best: 20.0rpg) and averages impressive 3.0bpg and 92.3% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 26-year old American Antwan Wilkerson (201-F-91) of league's second-best Al-Ittihad. Wilkerson had a very good evening with a double-double of 19 points and 18 rebounds. Of course he led Al-Ittihad to another comfortable win outscoring Samaheej (0-1) 90-56. His team has extremely good start of the season. They won their first game. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Wilkerson is a newcomer at Al-Ittihad, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Calvin Godfrey (206-F-90) of Al-Riffa (#6). Godfrey scored 25 points and grabbed sixteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Al-Riffa, leading his team to a 65-50 easy win against Al-Bahrain (#9, 0-1). Al-Riffa has a very good start of the season. But there was just one game played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Godfrey also has a very good start of the season with very strong stats. The season just started for Godfrey as he played only first game. But it already looks like he can be team's leader.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Haminn Quantance) of Al-Najma - 10 points, 26 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Aleksandar Maric (211-C-84) of Al-Muharraq - 13 points and 17 rebounds
6. Mile Ilic (215-C-84) of Al-Nweidrat - 20 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Ashraf Moaweya) of Hidd - 19 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Hussain Lulu) of Hidd - 32 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Quinton Doggett (206-F-90) of Al-Ahli - 22 points and 12 rebounds
10. Sidy Sall (206-F) of Al-Bahrain - 21 points, 23 rebounds and 2 assists

The Player of the week is chosen 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)
