Gavin
Edwards
American Power forward Gavin Edwards (206-F/C-88) had a very impressive game in the last round for top-ranked SeaHorses, receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 55.
The 28-year old player had a double-double of 30 points and 17 rebounds, while his team edged out Ryukyu GK (#3, 25-28) 90-87. It allowed SeaHorses to consolidate first place in the Japanese B League. SeaHorses have a solid 43-10 record. In the team's last game Edwards had a remarkable 52.6% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at SeaHorses, through which he has constantly improved. Gavin Edwards averages this season 14.9ppg and 7.6rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 32-year old American Reyshawn Terry (203-F-84) of Ryukyu GK. Terry had a very good evening with a double-double of 29 points and 10 rebounds. Bad luck as Ryukyu GK was edged by slightly higher-ranked SeaHorses (#1, 43-10) 90-87. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in West. Ryukyu GK still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 25-28 record. Terry is a newcomer at Ryukyu GK, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Diante Garrett (196-PG-88) of league's second-best Toyota Alvark. Garrett scored 28 points and passed six assists. Despite Garrett's great performance Toyota Alvark lost 78-84 to #3 ranked Chiba Jets. But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The last thing Toyota Alvark needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams in East. Their record is 38 victories and 15 lost games. Garrett has a great season in Japan. After 51 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.0ppg (7th best) and assists with 3.9apg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Leo Lyons (206-F-87) of Akita NH - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Ira Brown (193-F-82) of Hitachi SR - 22 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Michael Parker (202-F-81) of Chiba Jets - 19 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Greg Mangano (208-PF-89) of Sendai 89ers - 22 points and 7 rebounds
8. Narito Namizato (172-G-89) of Shiga L-Stars - 20 points and 8 assists
9. Mo Charlo (203-F-83) of Kyoto Hannar. - 20 points and 8 rebounds
10. Josh Harrellson (208-F-89) of Osaka Evessa - 19 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)
