David Simon

36-year old center David Simon (208-C-82) had a great game in the last round for second-ranked Kyoto Hannar. and receives a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 39.
He had the game-high 36 points adding eight rebounds and four assists for Kyoto Hannar. in his team's victory, helping them to beat Nagoya DD (#3, 21-18) 89-82. Kyoto Hannar. is placed at 2nd position in their group in Japanese league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Kyoto Hannar. will need more victories to improve their 22-17 record. In the team's last game Simon had a remarkable 72.7% from 2-point range. He turned to be Kyoto Hannar.'s top player in his first season with the team. Purdue University Fort Wayne graduate has very impressive stats this year. Simon is in league's top in points (2nd best: 24.1ppg) and averages solid 2.2bpg and 59.4% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Marqus Blakely (201-F-88) of Shiga L-Stars. He is American forward in his first season at Shiga L-Stars. In the last game Blakely recorded impressive double-double of 28 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Shiga L-Stars lost that game 70-83 to the higher-ranked Toyota Alvark (#3, 27-12). Shiga L-Stars managed to keep the same 6th spot in West. 31 lost games are too many comparing to just eight victories Shiga L-Stars managed to get this year. Blakely is a newcomer at Shiga L-Stars and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Nick Fazekas (211-F/C-85) of league's second-best Kawasaki BT. Fazekas got into 30-points club by scoring 31 points in the last round. He went also for eleven rebounds and four assists. He was a key player of Kawasaki BT, leading his team to a 83-81 win against the lower-ranked San-en (#5, 17-22). Kawasaki BT needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in Central. Their record at this point is 23 victories and 16 lost games. Fazekas has a great season in Japan. After 36 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 22.1ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 11.0rpg (8th best). Nick Fazekas has also Japanese passport and can play in the league with a status of domestic player.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Gani Lawal (206-F/C-88) of Shiga L-Stars - 33 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Jeffrey Gibbs (188-F-80) of Tochigi Brex - 18 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists
6. Davante Gardner (203-PF-91) of Niigata Albirex - 25 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Joshua Smith (208-C-92) of Toyama Grouses - 19 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists

10. Alex Kirk (211-C-91) of Toyota Alvark - 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists

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)
