30-year old power forward Vernon Macklin (208-F/C-86) had a great game in the last round for league's best team El Jaysh and receives a Player of the Week award for round 24.
He had a double-double of 38 points and 13 rebounds, while his team outclassed Al Wakrah (#9, 2-9) with 35-point margin 109-74. It allowed El Jaysh to consolidate first place in the Qatari league. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. It's already very far into the season and El Jaysh keeps a perfect 11-0 record. Macklin has many years of experience at El Jaysh, through which he has constantly improved. University of Florida graduate has very impressive stats this year. Macklin is in league's top in points (8th best: 24.9ppg), rebounds (6th best: 10.8rpg) and averages solid 1.5bpg and 60.5% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Marcus Bell (206-C-90) of Al Rayyan. He is American center in his first season at Al Rayyan. In the last game Bell recorded impressive double-double of 30 points and 16 rebounds. Bad luck as Al Rayyan lost that game 80-89 to slightly lower-ranked Al Shamal (#6, 4-7). Al Rayyan managed to keep the same 4th spot in the standings. His team's 7-4 record is not bad at all. Bell is a newcomer at Al Rayyan and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to another Al Rayyan's star - center Marcus Bell (206-C-90). Bell scored 26 points and grabbed sixteen rebounds (!!!). He was another key player of Al Rayyan, helping his team with a 94-67 easy win against the lower-ranked Al Ahli (#7, 4-7). Al Rayyan needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 7 victories and 4 lost games. Bell has a great season in Qatar. After 11 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 14.1rpg (2nd best). He also has 1.5bpg and FGP: 70.2%.

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)
