Maurice Kemp
25-year old forward Maurice Kemp (203-F-91, agency: Duran International) put on an amazing game in the last round for Tadamon and receives a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 2 (Second Stage).
He had the game-high 24 points adding five rebounds and two assists for Tadamon in his team's victory, helping them to edge out Moutahed (#2, 12-9) 75-71. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Tadamon maintains the 4th position in Lebanese league. Tadamon is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. But it was their 13th lost game this season out of 20 games. In the team's last game Kemp had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Tadamon's top player in his first season with the team. East Carolina University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Kemp is in league's top in points (6th best: 23.9ppg), rebounds (9th best: 8.7rpg) and averages solid 2.2spg.

Second best performed player last round was Mohamad Haidar (201-F-90) of top-ranked Al Riyadi. He is former international forward in his first season at Al Riyadi. In the last game Haidar recorded impressive double-double of 29 points and 11 rebounds. Of course Al Riyadi cruised to a 79-68 relatively comfortable win over Champville (8-12). The Second Stage is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot. Let's wait for the next round. Haidar is a newcomer at Al Riyadi and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to swingman Fadi El Khatib (198-F/G-79) of league's leader Homenetmen. El Khatib scored 29 points and grabbed five rebounds. He was a key player of Homenetmen, leading his team to a 96-62 easy win against #3 ranked Louaize in a game of the week. Many experts and fans count Homenetmen as a contender for championship title. Another victory and another confirmation that they may be right. Just look at their record: 19 victories and only one lost game. They are currently at the very top of the standings. El Khatib has a very solid season. In 18 games in Lebanon he scored 23.6ppg. He also has 5.7rpg, 3.2apg and and 3PT: 47.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ater Majok (208-C-87) of Homenetmen - 12 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Darian Townes (208-F/C-84) of Champville - 10 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Tarek Ammoury (196-G/F-90) of Byblos - 24 points and 4 rebounds
7. Patrick Rembert (185-PG-89) of Champville - 25 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Ali Traore (207-C/F-85) of Byblos - 21 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Michael Efevberha (193-G-84) of Sagesse - 18 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists
10. Cleveland Melvin (203-F-91) of Moutahed - 14 points, 9 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)
