Best players of Japanese B League D2 round 47 - Mar 20, 2017

Joshua
Crawford
American Joshua Crawford (211-C-88) put on an amazing game in the last round for Ehime OV and that's him to receive a Asia-basket.com B League D2 Player of the Week award for round 47.
The 28-year old center had a double-double of 21 points and seventeen rebounds, while his team beat Kagoshima (#6, 6-40) 75-67. Ehime OV maintains the 4th position in their group in Japanese B League D2. Ehime OV is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 24-22 record. In the team's last game Crawford had a remarkable 52.9% from 2-point range. It was one of impressive evenings for him as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Joshua Crawford averages this season 10.7ppg and 8.1rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old American guard Deon Jones (198-G-93) of Tokyo Z. Jones impressed basketball fans with 28 points and 8 rebounds. Of course he led Tokyo Z to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked Bambitious Nara (#5, 17-29) 102-65. Tokyo Z's 3rd position in Central has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 19-28 record. Jones is a newcomer at Tokyo Z 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 18.5ppg (#3). He also registered 10.0 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was American Chehales Tapscott (195-F-90) of Kagawa FA (#5). Tapscott scored 25 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Tapscott's great performance Kagawa FA lost 64-80 to the higher-ranked Shimane SM (#1, 38-7). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Kagawa FA not to end season at such low position in West, however are less than slim as they have already lost 32 games, recording just fourteen victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Tapscott could try to bring Kagawa FA's a little bit higher in the standings. Tapscott has individually a great season in Japan. After 46 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.1ppg (best scorer) and assists with 3.0apg (9th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Nicchaeus Doaks (201-F/C-87) of Iwate Big Bulls - 17 points and 16 rebounds
5. Will Creekmore (205-C-89) of Tokyo Z - 26 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Toshino Tatsuhiko (185-G-88) of Ehime OV - 28 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Donald Lawson (208-C-88) of Iwate Big Bulls - 19 points and 14 rebounds
8. Draelon Burns (194-G-85) of Nishinomiya S. - 18 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Toshino Yoshihiko (186-SG-92) of Ehime OV - 20 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Takumi Furuno (179-PG-93) of Kumamoto V. - 23 points, 10 rebounds and 2 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)
