Rick Rickert
33-year old Rick Rickert (211-C/F-83) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Cyberdyne IR and receives a Asia-basket.com B League D2 Player of the Week award for round 48.
He had a double-double of 29 points and 15 rebounds, while his team outclassed Iwate Big Bulls (#6, 10-36) with 43-point margin 98-55. Cyberdyne IR maintains the 5th position in their group in Japanese B League D2. Cyberdyne IR 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 20-26 record. In the team's last game Rickert had a remarkable 86.7% from 2-point range. He turned to be Cyberdyne IR's top player in his first season with the team. University of Minnesota graduate has very impressive stats this year. Rickert is in league's top in points (2nd best: 18.7ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 12.7rpg) and averages solid 51.3% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Justin Herold (203-PF-91) of Tokyo Excel.. He is American forward in his first season at Tokyo Excel.. In the last game Herold recorded impressive double-double of 23 points and 11 rebounds. Of course Tokyo Excel. cruised to a 80-73 relatively comfortable win over slightly lower-ranked Shinshu BW (#6, 12-35). Tokyo Excel.'s 4th position in Central has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 18-27 record. Herold is one of the most experienced players at Tokyo Excel. and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Josh Davis (203-F-91) of league's leader Shimane SM. Davis scored 26 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Davis' great performance Shimane SM lost 78-81 to the lower-ranked Kagawa FA (#5, 14-32). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Shimane SM had another "accident". It may be a crucial gamestill good, but 7th lost game is hopefully really an accident. Davis' teammates are also very good. That's why having such high stats is even more impressive. Davis has a great season in Japan. After 43 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 11.2rpg (4th best). He also has 1.3bpg and FGP: 60.9%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Kenta Tateyama (188-SF-90) of Aomori Watts - 27 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Scootie Randall (198-F-90) of Cyberdyne IR - 18 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Ryan Stephan (208-C-94) of Tokyo Excel. - 19 points, 15 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Chad Posthumus (211-C-91) of Shinshu BW - 21 points and 15 rebounds
8. Nigel Spikes (208-C-89) of Fukushima - 24 points and 11 rebounds
9. Abdullahi Kuso (206-F-84) of Gunma - 14 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Luke Evans (203-C-91) of Tokyo Excel. - 16 points, 7 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)
