24-year old guard Sean Hill (188-G-92) put on an amazing game in the last round for Kaspiy Aktau and receives a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 12. He had the game-high 40 points adding six rebounds and four assists for Kaspiy Aktau in his team's victory, helping them to beat Barsy Atyrau (#2, 6-10) 90-80. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Kaspiy Aktau maintains the 3rd position in Kazakhstan league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked at the very bottom. They already lost 14 games and recorded just two victories. In the team's last game Hill had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range and got five three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He just recently signed at Kaspiy Aktau, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Sean Hill averages this season 20.3ppg.
Second best performed player last round was Trevin Parks (180-PG-91) of league's second-best Barsy Atyrau. He is American guard in his first season at Barsy Atyrau. In the last game Parks recorded impressive 27 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists. Of course he led Barsy Atyrau to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked Kaspiy Aktau (#3, 2-14) 95-67. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Barsy Atyrau consolidated its place in top 2 of the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 6-10 record. Parks is a newcomer at Barsy Atyrau and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 21.4ppg (#1). He also recorded 4.0 assists per game.
Third place about best performers goes to another Barsy Atyrau's star - forward Pavel Micheev (201-F-83). Micheev scored 19 points and grabbed five rebounds. Despite Micheev's great performance Barsy Atyrau lost 80-90 to #3 ranked Kaspiy Aktau. But his team cannot count on just these two top stars as they also need help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The chances of Barsy Atyrau not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 10 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Micheev could try to bring Barsy Atyrau's a little bit higher in the standings. Micheev has individually a great season in Kazakhstan. After 14 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 10.2ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 5.6rpg (2nd best). Pavel Micheev has also Kazakhstan passport and can play in the league with a status of domestic player.
