Asia Taylor
American Forward Asia Taylor (188-F-91, agency: LBM Management) put on an amazing game in the last round for top-ranked Sydney, receiving a Australiabasket.com Player of the Week award for round 17.
The 25-year old player had a double-double of 28 points and 15 rebounds, while her team beat Melbourne (#7, 4-17) 72-67. It allowed Sydney to consolidate first place in the Australian WNBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Sydney has a very solid 16-6 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. In the team's last game Taylor had a remarkable 57.1% from 2-point range. She turned to be Sydney's top player in her first season with the team. Former University of Louisville star has very solid stats this year. Taylor is in league's top in points (5th best: 17.3ppg) and rebounds (4th best: 8.4rpg).

The second best player in last round's games was 36-year old Croatian center Suzy Batkovic-Brown (195-C-80) of Townsville. Batkovic-Brown had a very good evening with 31 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. It was enough for Townsville to edge slightly lower-ranked Bendigo (#5, 11-10) 83-77. Townsville's 4th position in the standings has not changed. Her team's 13-9 record is not bad at all. Batkovic-Brown is one of the most experienced players at Townsville and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American swingman Samantha Whitcomb (178-G/F-88) of Perth (#3). Whitcomb showcased her all-around game by recording 27 points, seven rebounds and five assists in the last round. She was a key player of Perth, leading her team to a 84-72 win against the lower-ranked Canberra (#6, 11-10). Perth needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 14 victories and 7 lost games. Whitcomb has a great season in Australia. After 21 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 24.1ppg (best scorer) and assists with 4.2apg (7th best). She also has 2.8spg, FGP: 54.9% and 3PT: 41.9%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Suzy Batkovic-Brown (195-C-80) of Townsville - 26 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Kelsey Griffin (188-F-87) of Bendigo - 28 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Marianna Tolo (196-C-89) of Canberra - 20 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Mia Murray (184-G-88) of Townsville - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Alex Ciabattoni (183-G/F-94) of Adelaide - 17 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Mikaela Ruef (190-F-90) of Canberra - 11 points, 20 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Lauren Mansfield (170-G-89) of Canberra - 18 points, 5 rebounds and 5 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)
