Mike Karena
MIKE KARENA

Former international Center Mike Karena (208-C-93) put on an amazing game in the last round for Rams and that's him to receive a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 2.
The 25-year old center had the game-high 36 points adding nine rebounds for Rams in his team's victory, helping them to crush Rangers (#7, 1-2) with 23-point margin 91-68. Rams is placed at 4th position in New Zealand NBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this season. Rams will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. Karena turned to be Rams' top player in his first season with the team.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 26-year old American power forward Jalen Billups (198-F/C-92, agency: Haylett Sports) of Huskies. Billups impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 32 points and 15 rebounds. Bad luck as Huskies lost that game 95-105 to Hawks (2-1). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Billups is one of the most experienced players at Huskies and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 24.0ppg (#3). He also registered 10.0 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was another Huskies' star - Craig Moller (203-F-94, agency: MKP Management). Moller scored 27 points and grabbed seventeen rebounds (!!!). He was another key player of Huskies, helping his team with a 100-99 win against Jets (#9, 0-2). The chances of Huskies not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 2 games, recording just one victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Moller could try to bring Huskies' a little bit higher in the standings. Moller has individually a great season in New Zealand. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 13.0rpg (#1 in league).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Kuran Iverson (206-F-95) of Jets - 25 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Ethan Rusbatch (196-G/F-92) of Hawks - 33 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Tre Nichols (180-G-89) of Huskies - 30 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Hyrum Harris (198-F-96) of Sharks - 18 points and 7 rebounds
8. Nick Kay (206-F/C-92) of Saints - 20 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. E.J. Singler (198-F-90) of Hawks - 22 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Shaquille Thomas (201-F-92) of Hawks - 22 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists

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)

The Player of the Week awards are presented by Interperformances. Interperformances is a full-service agency specializing in the representation of professional athletes the world-over. With more than forty-eight years of experience, INTERPERFORMANCES is well known to all professional teams and clubs. General Managers trust and rely on our opinions and recommendations.
