J.P. Prince
American J.P. Prince (203-G/F-87) had a very impressive game in the last round for Azad and that's him to receive a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 15.
The 29-year old swingman had the game-high 26 points adding seven rebounds for Azad in his team's victory, helping them to edge out Tabriz (#4, 9-6) 63-62. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Azad maintains the 3rd position in Iranian Superleague. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Azad will need more victories to improve their 10-5 record. In the team's last game Prince had a remarkable 80.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Azad's top player in his first season with the team. University of Tennessee graduate has very impressive stats this year. Prince is in league's top in points (5th best: 19.3ppg), assists (6th best: 3.6apg) and averages solid 2.3spg and 56.3% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 32-year old Croatian Filip Toncinic (212-C/F-84) of Gorgan. Toncinic impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 23 points and 10 rebounds. Of course he led Gorgan to another comfortable win outscoring Shiraz a.s Pipe (#10, 0-15) 84-60. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. Gorgan keeps 9th position. 12 lost games are too many comparing to just three victories Gorgan managed to get this year. Toncinic is a newcomer at Gorgan and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.6ppg (#7). He also registered 8.8 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was American Quinton Hosley (201-F-84) of Arak (#6). Hosley showcased his all-around game by recording 18 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the last round. Despite Hosley's great performance Arak lost 79-98 to slightly lower-ranked Kashan (#7, 7-8). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Arak needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 8 victories and 7 lost games. Hosley has a great season in Iran. After 13 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.7ppg (6th best) and assists with 3.6apg (5th best). He also has 3.1spg and FGP: 59.3%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ivan Koljevic (187-PG-84) of Kashan - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists
5. Zvonko Buljan (206-C-87) of Kashan - 25 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Arsalan Kazemi (200-SF-90) of Army - 11 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Joseph Jones (206-C/F-86) of Azad - 21 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Daequan Cook (195-G-87) of Chemidor - 28 points and 3 rebounds
9. Saeed Davarpanah (190-G/F-87) of Naft Abadan - 21 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Saman Taherpour (203-PF-91) of Shiraz a.s Pipe - 20 points and 12 rebounds

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)
