Abdullahi Kuso's triple-double lands him B League D2 Player of the Week award - Apr 17, 2017

Abdullahi
Kuso
Nigerian Forward Abdullahi Kuso (206-F-84) had a very impressive game in the last round for top-ranked Gunma, receiving a Asia-basket.com B League D2 Player of the Week award for round 55.
The 32-year old player recorded a triple-double of 20 points adding also 11 rebounds and 10 assists, while his team beat Cyberdyne IR (#3, 26-28) 86-71. It allowed Gunma to consolidate first place in the Japanese B League D2. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Gunma has a very solid 35-19 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. Kuso turned to be Gunma's top player in his first season with the team. Abdullahi Kuso averages this season 13.5ppg and 8.8rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old American Nigel Spikes (208-C-89) of league's second-best Fukushima. Spikes had a very good evening with 32 points and 9 rebounds. It was enough for Fukushima to edge the lower-ranked Aomori Watts (#5, 24-30) 89-88. Fukushima's second position in East has not changed. His team's 28-26 record is not bad at all. Spikes is a newcomer at Fukushima, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was Canadian center Chad Posthumus (211-C-91) of Shinshu BW (#6). Posthumus scored 22 points and grabbed twenty six rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Shinshu BW, leading his team to a 82-78 win against the higher-ranked Toyotsu FE (#2, 38-16). Shinshu BW can only dream about fighting for top spots in Central. They have rather bad season and 13-41 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Posthumus he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Posthumus has individually a great season in Japan. After 23 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 11.4rpg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Chehales Tapscott (195-F-90) of Kagawa FA - 29 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Wayne Marshall (211-C-86) of Shimane SM - 27 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Will Creekmore (205-C-89) of Tokyo Z - 20 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Alan Wiggins (206-F-85) of Aomori Watts - 30 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Kyle Barone (208-C-89) of Aomori Watts - 21 points, 15 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Josh Davis (203-F-91) of Shimane SM - 13 points and 11 rebounds
10. Mitsutaka Izawa (194-F/G-93) of Yamagata - 23 points and 3 rebounds

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)
