Troy Gillenwater

33-year old forward Troy Gillenwater (205-F-88) put on an amazing game in the last round for Shandong H. and receives a Hoops Agents Player of the Week award for round 32.
He had the game-high 45 points adding eight rebounds and three assists for Shandong H. in his team’s victory, helping them to edge out Shanxi L. (#9, 17-11) 116-112. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings. Shandong H. maintains the 10th position in Chinese league. They would have been even better if they hadn’t lost a few games earlier this season. Shandong H. will need more victories to improve their 16-12 record. In the team’s last game Gillenwater had a remarkable 69.2% from 2-point range and got six three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Shandong H.’s top player in his first season with the team. Troy Gillenwater averages this season 16.9ppg.

Second best performed player last round was Dakari Johnson (213-C/F-95) of Qingdao E.. He is American in his 3rd season at Qingdao E.. In the last game Johnson recorded impressive double-double of 30 points and 24 rebounds. Bad luck as Qingdao E. lost that game 88-93 to the higher-ranked Zhejiang GB. (#3, 22-6). Qingdao E. is still in a red zone at 16th spot in the standings. 20 lost games are too many comparing to just eight victories Qingdao E. managed to get this year. Johnson is one of the most experienced players at Qingdao E. and has a reputation of one of team’s most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Rongxiao Sun (200-F-95) of Nanjing TX MK (#20). Sun got into 30-points club by scoring 34 points in the last round. He went also for ten rebounds and seven assists. Despite Sun’s great performance Nanjing TX MK lost 109-129 to the higher-ranked Liaoning FL (#1, 25-3). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Nanjing TX MK can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have extremely bad season and 1-27 record places them at the very bottom of the standings. Sun has individually a great season in China. After 26 games, he made it on the list of the league’s leaders in assists with 1.3apg (5th best).

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)
