Allen Durham
ALLEN DURHAM

American Power forward Allen Durham (198-F/C-88) had an amazing evening in the last round for Shiga L-Stars, receiving a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 56.
The 30-year old player had a double-double of 34 points and 14 rebounds, while his team edged out Kyoto Hannar. (#3, 29-27) 90-88. Shiga L-Stars maintains the 5th position in their group in Japanese B League. Shiga L-Stars is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 17-39 record. Durham just recently signed at Shiga L-Stars, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Former Grace Bible College star has very solid stats this year. Durham leads league in rebounds with 13.6rpg. Durham is in league's top in and averages impressive 53.7% FGP. Worth to mention Durham played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

The second best player in last round's games was 28-year old Zimbabwean Julian Mavunga (203-PF-90, agency: Pensack Sports) of Kyoto Hannar.. Mavunga had a very good evening with a double-double of 30 points and 13 assists. Bad luck as Kyoto Hannar. was edged by slightly lower-ranked Shiga L-Stars (#5, 17-39) 90-88. Kyoto Hannar. managed to keep the same 3rd spot in West. His team's 29-27 record is not bad at all. Mavunga is a newcomer at Kyoto Hannar., but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.1ppg (#5). His other stats are also decent: 8.6rpg and 8.7apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was Canadian center Robert Sacre (213-C-89) of Hitachi SR (#4). Sacre got into 30-points club by scoring 31 points in the last round. He went also for ten rebounds . Despite Sacre's great performance Hitachi SR lost 73-81 to #3 ranked Toyota Alvark. But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. The chances of Hitachi SR ranking at the top of East, however are very questionable as they have already lost 29 games, recording just twenty seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Sacre could help Hitachi SR to bring them higher in the standings. Sacre has a very solid season. In 56 games in Japan he scored 19.5ppg. He also has 9.1rpg and FGP: 52.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Davante Gardner (203-PF-91) of Niigata Albirex - 25 points, 14 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Vernon Macklin (208-F/C-86) of Kawasaki BT - 28 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
6. David Doblas (206-C-81) of Hokkaido L. - 24 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Justin Burrell (207-F-88) of Nagoya DD - 22 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Hilton Armstrong (210-C-84) of Nagoya DD - 18 points and 21 rebounds
9. Isaac Butts (208-C-89) of SeaHorses - 13 points, 16 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Nick Fazekas (211-F/C-85) of Kawasaki BT - 25 points and 11 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.
