Best players of Japanese JBL round 9 - Dec 3, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Nick Fazekas
American Nick Fazekas (211-F-85) had a great game in the last round for Toshiba BT and that's him to receive a Player of the Week award for round 9.
The 27-year old forward had a double-double of 19 points and nineteen rebounds, while his team beat Tochigi Brex (#7, 4-14) 68-60. Toshiba BT maintains the 4th position in Japanese JBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Toshiba BT will need more victories to improve their 10-8 record. Fazekas turned to be Toshiba BT's top player in his first season with the team. The University of Nevada graduate has very impressive stats this year. Fazekas is league's best scorer averaging so far 23.3ppg. Fazekas is in league's top in rebounds (3rd best: 11.7rpg) and averages solid 60.2% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 35-year old American Jameel Watkins (211-C/F-77) of Panasonic T.. Watkins impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 17 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Panasonic T. lost that game 77-89 to the lower-ranked Hokkaido L. (#8, 2-16). Panasonic T. managed to keep the same 3rd spot in the standings. His team's 11-7 record is not bad at all. Watkins is a newcomer at Panasonic T. and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 17.9ppg (#3). He also registered 12.5 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was another Panasonic T.'s star - Takanori Onishi (195-F-83). Onishi scored 28 points and grabbed seven rebounds. He was another key player of Panasonic T., helping his team with a 92-77 easy win against the lower-ranked Hokkaido L. (#8, 2-16). Panasonic T. needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 11 victories and 7 lost games. Onishi has a very solid season. In 16 games in Japan he scored 11.1ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Jamar Smith (206-F/C-80) of Hitachi SR - 24 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Jameel Watkins (211-C/F-77) of Panasonic T. - 20 points and 14 rebounds
6. J.R. Sakuragi (206-F/C-76) of Aishin SH - 17 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists
7. Jeff Gibbs (188-F-80) of Toyota Alvark - 13 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Takehiko Orimo (190-G-70) of Hokkaido L. - 22 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
9. J.R. Sakuragi (206-F/C-76) of Aishin SH - 13 points, 15 rebounds and 2 assists

The Player of the week is choosen 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)   

B League D3 Round 23: Aisin AW is defeated by Toyoda Gosei in a derby game - 12 hours ago
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL. The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Aichi: Toyoda Gosei (#5) and Aisin AW (#7). Aisin AW was defeated at home 56-64 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. Toyoda Gosei dominated down low during the game scoring 50 of its points in the paint compared to Aisin AW's 28. They outr...   [read more]
