Adamu Saaka
American-Ghanian Adamu Saaka (198-SF-88) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Al Arabi, receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 3.
The 28-year old player had a double-double of 36 points and 14 rebounds, while his team outclassed Al Rayyan (2-1) with 28-point margin 83-55. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Al Arabi is placed at 3rd position in Qatari D1. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this season. Al Arabi will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. In the team's last game Saaka had a remarkable four three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He turned to be Al Arabi's top player in his first season with the team. Former Furman University star has very solid stats this year. Saaka is in league's top in points (7th best: 24.3ppg).

The second best player in last round's games was another Al Arabi's star - 29-year old Nigerian Manny Adako (203-F/C-87, agency: Court Side). Adako had a very good evening with a double-double of 23 points and 18 rebounds. Of course together with Saaka he helped Al Arabi with another comfortable win outscoring Al Rayyan (2-1) 83-55. The season is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot. Let's wait for the next round. Adako is a newcomer at Al Arabi, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Dominic James (180-PG-86) of league's second-best El Jaysh. James showcased his all-around game by recording 22 points, five rebounds and ten assists (!!!) in the last round. He was a key player of El Jaysh, leading his team to a 115-70 easy win against Al Wakrah (#7, 1-1). El Jaysh has a very good start of the season. But there were just 2 games played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. James also has a very good start of the season with very strong stats. James has a great season in Qatar. After only 2 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in assists with 7.5apg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Sammy Monroe (198-F-85) of Al Gharafa - 28 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Rickey Young (205-PF-90) of Al Khor - 26 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Fadi Hani Abilmona) of El Jaysh - 27 points, 4 rebounds and 11 assists
7. Michael Taylor (186-G-86) of Al Gharafa - 31 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Quinton Doggett (206-F-90) of Qatar Club - 28 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Boney Watson (183-PG-78) of Al Shamal - 21 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists
10. Dairese Gary (185-PG-88) of Al Khor - 23 points, 12 rebounds and 9 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)
