RYAN STEPHAN

American Center Ryan Stephan (208-C-94) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for top-ranked Tokyo Excel., receiving a Interperformances B League D3 Player of the Week award for round 3 (Second Stage).
The 24-year old player had a double-double of 25 points and 12 rebounds, while his team edged out Koshigaya A. (#2, 3-3) 90-87. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Tokyo Excel. to consolidate first place in the Japanese B League D3. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but Tokyo Excel. already had a very good start winning all 4 without losing a single one. In the team's last game Stephan had a remarkable 81.8% from 2-point range. He turned to be Tokyo Excel.'s top player in his first season with the team. Former Mesa State University star has very solid stats this year. Stephan is in league's top in points (2nd best: 24.0ppg), rebounds (4th best: 13.3rpg) and averages impressive 68.2% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old American Kyle Richardson (201-PF-91) of league's second-best Koshigaya A.. Richardson had a very good evening with a double-double of 35 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Koshigaya A. lost that game 75-88 to Tokyo Excel. (4-0). The Second Stage is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Richardson is well-known at Koshigaya A. and is a proven leader in his second season with the team. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.5ppg (#3). He also registered 11.1 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Tokyo Excel.'s star - American forward Jordan Faison (201-F-94). Faison showcased his all-around game by recording 29 points, twelve rebounds (!!!) and seven assists in the last round. He was another key player of Tokyo Excel., helping his team with a 90-87 win against #2 ranked Koshigaya A. in a game of the week. Tokyo Excel. started extremely well this Second Stage. They recorded 4 victories without losing a single game. Faison turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Faison has a great season in Japan. After 51 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 22.1ppg (4th best) and assists with 5.0apg (4th best). He also has 1.9bpg and FGP: 63.8%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Titus Robinson (201-PF-90) of Iwate Big Bulls - 23 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Chris Olivier (203-F-92) of Tokyo Cinq R. - 26 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Michael Allison (206-C-90) of Gifu Swoops - 26 points and 6 rebounds
7. Shelton Boykin (198-F-92) of Kagoshima - 26 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Marcus Cousin (211-C-86) of Iwate Big Bulls - 23 points and 10 rebounds
9. Gjio Bain (211-C-85) of Kagoshima - 20 points and 11 rebounds
10. Kodai Takahashi (180-SG-91) of Tokyo Cinq R. - 12 points, 5 rebounds and 6 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)

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.
