Gardner
DAVANTE GARDNER

American Davante Gardner (203-PF-91) had a great game in the last round for league's leader Niigata Albirex and that's him to receive a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 19.
The 27-year old power forward had a double-double of 25 points and twelve rebounds, while his team edged out Fukuoka Rizing (#5, 4-15) 73-69. It allowed Niigata Albirex to consolidate first place in the Japanese B League. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Niigata Albirex has a very solid 13-6 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. In the team's last game Gardner had a remarkable 78.6% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at Niigata Albirex, through which he has constantly improved. Marquette University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Gardner is league's best scorer averaging so far 26.8ppg. Gardner is in league's top in rebounds (6th best: 11.3rpg) and averages solid 59.6% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 28-year old Zimbabwean power forward Julian Mavunga (203-PF-90, agency: Pensack Sports) of Kyoto Hannar.. Mavunga impressed basketball fans with 41 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists. Bad luck as Kyoto Hannar. was edged by slightly higher-ranked Toyota Alvark (#3, 12-7) 85-82. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in West. Kyoto Hannar. still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 11-8 record is not bad at all. Mavunga is a newcomer at Kyoto Hannar. and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.8ppg (#8). His other stats are also decent: 8.8rpg and 8.8apg.

The third best performed player last round was American Justin Keenan (202-F/C-88) of Akita NH (#5). Keenan scored 29 points and grabbed eight rebounds. He was a key player of Akita NH, leading his team to a 81-61 easy win against slightly higher-ranked SeaHorses (#4, 9-10). The chances of Akita NH not to end season at such low position in Central, however are less than slim as they have already lost 12 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Keenan could try to bring Akita NH's a little bit higher in the standings. Keenan has individually a great season in Japan. After 18 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 21.3ppg (6th best). He also has FGP: 54.1% and 3PT: 40.4%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Robert Sacre (213-C-89) of Hitachi SR - 29 points and 9 rebounds
5. Justin Burrell (207-F-88) of Nagoya DD - 24 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Shinnosuke Ohishi (174-PG-87) of San-en - 23 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Leo Lyons (206-F-87) of Toyama Grouses - 21 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Joshua Smith (208-C-92) of Toyama Grouses - 19 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Gavin Edwards (206-F/C-88) of Chiba Jets - 30 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Alex Kirk (211-C-91) of Toyota Alvark - 21 points and 14 rebounds

The Player of the week is selected 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)

The Player of the Week awards are presented by Interperformances. Interperformances is a full-service agency specializing in the representation of professional athletes the world-over. With more than forty-eight years of experience, INTERPERFORMANCES is well known to all professional teams and clubs. General Managers trust and rely on our opinions and recommendations.
