SANI SAKAKINI

30-year old center Sani Sakakini (204-C-88) put on an amazing game in the last round for Yulon Luxgen and receives a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 7.
He had a double-double of 29 points and 13 rebounds, while his team crushed KKL (#2, 10-5) with 16-point margin 100-84. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Yulon Luxgen maintains the 3rd position in Taiwanese league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Yulon Luxgen will need more victories to improve their 10-6 record. Sakakini turned to be Yulon Luxgen's top player in his first season with the team. Sakakini has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 24.3ppg and leads league in rebounds with 14.2rpg. Sakakini is in league's top in and averages solid 1.1bpg and 53.2% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Wei-Han Lin (178-PG-90). He is former international guard in his 2nd season at Yulon Luxgen. In the last game Lin recorded impressive double-double of 25 points and 20 assists. Of course Yulon Luxgen cruised to a 106-98 relatively comfortable win over the lower-ranked Bank of Taiwan (#7, 3-12). Yulon Luxgen's 3rd position in the standings has not changed. His team's 10-6 record is not bad at all. Lin is well-known at Yulon Luxgen and together with Sani Sakakini he already established his position as one of the team's leaders.

Third place about best performers goes to center Anthony McClain (211-C-88) of Dacin Tigers (#5). McClain scored 23 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Dacin Tigers, leading his team to a 92-89 win against the higher-ranked KKL (#2, 10-5). The chances of Dacin Tigers ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 8 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, McClain could help Dacin Tigers to bring them higher in the standings. McClain has a great season in Taiwan. After 13 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.7ppg (8th best) and rebounds with 13.1rpg (4th best). He also has 2.0bpg and FGP: 64.1%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. O.J. Mayo (193-G-87) of Dacin Tigers - 28 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Charles Garcia (208-F-88) of Fubon Braves - 20 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Kyle Meyer (208-C-93) of Pauian - 24 points and 10 rebounds
7. Eric Dawson (206-F/C-84) of Yulon Luxgen - 19 points and 10 rebounds
8. Po-Hsun Chou (197-PF-91) of Taiwan Beer - 20 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Wei-Che Lin (182-G-92) of Fubon Braves - 17 points, 3 rebounds and 9 assists
10. Jia-Qing Li (190-F-82) of KKL - 21 points and 9 rebounds

The Player of the week is selected 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)
