Donald
Lawson
American Center Donald Lawson (208-C-88) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Iwate Big Bulls, receiving a Asia-basket.com B League D2 Player of the Week award for round 43.
The 28-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 11 rebounds, while his team crushed Kumamoto V. (#3, 32-10) with 17-point margin 84-67. Iwate Big Bulls maintains the 6th position in their group in Japanese B League D2. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 32 games and recorded just ten victories. It was one of impressive evenings for Lawson as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Donald Lawson averages this season 10.5ppg and 10.0rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 33-year old American Rick Rickert (211-C/F-83) of Cyberdyne IR. Rickert had a very good evening with a double-double of 25 points and 14 rebounds. Of course he led Cyberdyne IR to another comfortable win 88-72 over slightly higher-ranked Bambitious Nara (#5, 15-27) being unquestionably team leader. Cyberdyne IR's 5th position in Central has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 17-25 record. Rickert is a newcomer at Cyberdyne IR, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 19.0ppg (#1). He also registered 12.7 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was Nigerian forward Chukwudiebere Maduabum (206-F-91) of Kagoshima (#6). Maduabum scored 21 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Maduabum's great performance Kagoshima lost 71-92 to the higher-ranked Nishinomiya S. (#2, 29-13). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Kagoshima can only dream about fighting for top spots in West. They have rather bad season and 5-37 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Maduabum he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Maduabum has a very solid season. In 41 games in Japan he scored 11.8ppg. He also has 9.0rpg and 2.4bpg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Solomon Alabi (216-C-88) of Toyotsu FE - 28 points and 15 rebounds
5. Terrance Woodbury (201-G-87) of Bambitious Nara - 25 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Josh Davis (203-F-91) of Shimane SM - 19 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Daiji Yamada (200-C-81) of Hiroshima D. - 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Shinya Murakami (172-PG-91) of Fukushima - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Daniel Dillon (193-G-86) of Hiroshima D. - 15 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists
10. Nigel Spikes (208-C-89) of Fukushima - 16 points, 12 rebounds and 3 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)

Shimane Susanoo Magic (B League D2) signed experienced 35-year old naturalized Brazilian forward Kazuya Hatano (192-97kg-82). It is actually his comeback to Shimane Magic as he has played here before. Hatano played last season at Ryukyu Golden Kings Okinawa in the B League. In 60 games he had just 2.8ppg and 2.5rpg. B League D2 will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. Hatano helped them to end the regular season as a second best team in B League West Division. H...   [read more]
