Forward Anton Bykov (200-F-89) had an amazing evening in the last round for second-ranked Tobol, receiving a Asia-basket.com Higher League Player of the Week award for round 6. The 27-year old player was the main contributor (24 points, seven rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to outclass Irtysh (#9, 1-7) with 42-point margin 95-53. Tobol maintains the 2nd position in Kazakhstan Higher League. They are still close to the very top. Tobol would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 7-1 record. Bykov turned to be Tobol's top player in his first season with the team. Anton Bykov has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (4th best: 17.8ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 10.5rpg) and averages impressive 69.7% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 31-year old Russian center Vsevolod Fadeikin (206-C-85) of league's leader Almat.Legion. Fadeikin had a very good evening with a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds. Of course Almat.Legion cruised to a 96-85 relatively comfortable win over Kapshagay (7-1). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Kapshagay managed to tie with Almat.Legion at the very top position in the standings. His team lost just one game this season, while they won 7 matches. Fadeikin is one of the most experienced players at Almat.Legion and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.0ppg (#7). He also registered 8.4 boards per game.
Third on the list of top players last round was center Vladimir Ivanov (203-C-94) of Okzetpes (#8). Ivanov showcased his all-around game by recording 22 points, thirteen rebounds (!!!) and four assists in the last round. Despite Ivanov's great performance Okzetpes lost 71-72 to slightly higher-ranked Tigers Ast. (#7, 3-6). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Okzetpes can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 2-6 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Ivanov he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Ivanov has individually a great season in Kazakhstan. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 25.1ppg (best scorer) and rebounds with 11.6rpg (#1 in league). He also has 2.1spg and FGP: 54.3%.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Konstantin Dvirniy (192-G/F-88) of Kapshagay - 22 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists 5. Daniil Seleznev (186-PG-90) of Kapshagay - 21 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists 6. Zhandos Kaliyev (197-F-93) of Kazygurt - 10 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists 7.
