Lawrence
Blackledge
American forward Lawrence Blackledge (206-F-86, agency: Top Notch Sports) had a great game in the last round for Iwate Big Bulls, receiving a Asia-basket.com BJ League Player of the Week award for round 24.
The 26-year old player had a double-double of 19 points and 12 rebounds, while his team outclassed Saitama Bron. (#11, 2-18) with 44-point margin 97-53. Iwate Big Bulls maintains the 3rd position in Japanese BJ League. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Iwate Big Bulls will need more victories to improve their 16-6 record. In the team's last game Blackledge had a remarkable 70.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Iwate Big Bulls' top player in his first season with the team. Former Marquette University star has very solid stats this year. Blackledge is in league's top in rebounds (9th best: 9.8rpg) and averages impressive 2.9bpg and 54.7% FGP. Worth to mention Blackledge played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

The second best player in last round's games was 29-year old American Rodney Webb (200-F-83) of league's leader Niigata Albirex. Webb had a very good evening with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists. Of course he lead Niigata Albirex to another comfortable win 95-76 over the lower-ranked Shinshu BW (#6, 13-11) being unquestionably team leader. Of course Niigata Albirex still keep the league's top spot. His team has currently 17-6 record. Webb is a newcomer at Niigata Albirex, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Thomas Kennedy (201-F-87, agency: Global Sports Plaza) of league's second-best Yokohama BC. Kennedy scored 27 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Yokohama BC, leading his team to a 76-52 easy win against the lower-ranked Tokyo Cinq R. (#8, 8-14). Yokohama BC needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in the standings. Their record at this point is 16 victories and 6 lost games. Kennedy has a great season in Japan. After 22 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.0ppg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Lawrence Blackledge (206-F-86) of Iwate Big Bulls - 20 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Dexter Lyons (198-F/G-81) of Takamatsu FA - 14 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists
6. Draelon Burns (194-G-85) of Yokohama BC - 30 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
7. D'Mario Curry (201-G/F-85) of Shinshu BW - 13 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Nile Murry (193-G-83) of Niigata Albirex - 19 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists
9. Carlos Dixon (201-F-81) of Iwate Big Bulls - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Michael Bell (206-F-82) of Osaka Evessa - 16 points and 13 rebounds

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)
