Alex Scales
Experienced American Alex Scales (192-G-78) had a great game in the last round for league's leader Mumbai Ch. and that's him to receive a Court Side Player of the Week award for round 4.
The 38-year old guard had the game-high 45 points adding three rebounds and four assists for Mumbai Ch. in his team's victory, helping them to beat Haryana G. (#4, 0-2), the league's bottom-ranked team 123-110. It allowed Mumbai Ch. to consolidate first place in the Indian UBA League. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. But it's just the very beginning of the season and Mumbai Ch. won both games without losing any. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Scales had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range and got six three-pointers out of 12 attempts. He just recently signed at Mumbai Ch. and just after two games he already turned to be a very valuable addition to the team. University of Oregon graduate has very impressive stats this year. Scales is league's best scorer averaging so far 41.5ppg. Scales is in league's top in and averages solid 69.6% FGP and 54.5% from behind 3-point line.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old American guard Dermaine Crockrell (185-G-89) of Punjab S.. Crockrell impressed basketball fans with 42 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Bad luck as Punjab S. was edged by slightly higher-ranked Delhi C. (1-1) 99-96. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in North. Punjab S. still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 1-1 record is not bad at all. Crockrell is one of the most experienced players at Punjab S. and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 33.0ppg (#5). His other stats are also decent: 5.5rpg and 7.0apg. Bemidji State University alumni Crockrell played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which is considered top summer league for players who want to play basketball overseas.

The third best performed player last round was American De'Sean Mattox (185-G) of Haryana G. (#4). Mattox got into 30-points club by scoring 39 points in the last round. He went also for nine rebounds and seven assists. Despite Mattox's great performance Haryana G. lost 110-123 to #1 ranked Mumbai Ch.. But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Haryana G. can only dream about fighting for top spots in North. They have awful season losing so far all 2 games. Too bad for Mattox he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Mattox has individually a great season in India. After only 2 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 38.5ppg (2nd best), rebounds with 9.0rpg (5th best) and assists with 6.0apg (8th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ronald March (196-G-93) of Delhi C. - 30 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists
5. Jimmy Scroggins) of Mumbai Ch. - 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Janbandhu Vinay) of Delhi C. - 17 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists
7. Gurvinder Singh Gill (200-F/C-96) of Punjab S. - 19 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Ajay Pratap) of Delhi C. - 16 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Eban Hyams (196-G-81) of Haryana G. - 15 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists
10. Prakash Mishra (183-G-82) of Haryana G. - 20 points, 4 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)

The Player of the Week awards are presented by Court Side. Court Side is the global leader in basketball management, and is widely regarded as the most dynamic and innovative company of its kind. It was the first Basketball Agency to launch its own website, and the first to have its own database. Court Side has more agents and manpower within its organization, than any other competitor, and its international network of basketball contacts is still unparalleled.
