Andrew
Fitzgerald
27-year old Andrew Fitzgerald (202-C/F-90) had a great game in the last round for Kanazawa Sam. and receives a Asia-basket.com B League D2 Player of the Week award for round 14.
He had a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds, while his team beat Tokyo Z (#6, 5-10) 70-64. Kanazawa Sam. was forced-out from the top positions in Japanese B League D2. Kanazawa Sam. 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 8-7 record. Fitzgerald has many years of experience at Kanazawa Sam., through which he has constantly improved. The University of Oklahoma graduate has very impressive stats this year. Fitzgerald is in league's top in points (2nd best: 22.2ppg) and averages solid 62.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Thomas Kennedy (201-F-87) of league's second-best Gunma. He is American forward in his 3rd season at Gunma. In the last game Kennedy recorded impressive double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Gunma lost that game 78-98 to slightly lower-ranked Kumamoto V. (#3, 10-5). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in Central. Gunma still maintains its place in the top 2 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 8-7 record is not bad at all. Kennedy is one of the most experienced players at Gunma and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 21.4ppg (#3). He also registered 6.9 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Herbert Hill (208-F-84) of Toyotsu FE (#5). Hill scored 15 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Toyotsu FE, leading his team to a 69-62 win against Shinshu BW (8-7). Toyotsu FE needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams in Central. Their record at this point is 8 victories and 7 lost games. Hill has a very solid season. In 15 games in Japan he scored 13.3ppg. He also has 7.7rpg, 1.4bpg and FGP: 59.7%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Reginald Warren (204-F-81) of Kagawa FA - 27 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Billy McShepard (208-F-87) of Yamagata - 22 points and 8 rebounds
6. Terrance Woodbury (201-G-87) of Kumamoto V. - 26 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Josh Hawkinson (208-F-95) of Toyotsu FE - 20 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Takumi Furuno (179-PG-93) of Kumamoto V. - 16 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
9. Josh Peppers (201-F-85) of Fukuoka Rizing - 21 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Rick Rickert (211-C/F-83) of Cyberdyne IR - 16 points and 13 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)
