American Davante Gardner (203-PF-91) put on an amazing 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 57.
The 27-year old power forward had a double-double of 29 points and nineteen rebounds, while his team edged out Kawasaki BT (#2, 38-20) 80-78. 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 42-15 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. Gardner 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 27.8ppg. Gardner is in league's top in and averages solid 61.5% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 26-year old American center Joshua Smith (208-C-92) of Toyama Grouses. Smith impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 25 points and 13 rebounds. It was enough for Toyama Grouses to edge the lower-ranked Yokohama BC (#6, 14-44) by 2 points 99-97. This victory allowed Toyama Grouses to move up to 3rd position in Central. His team's 31-28 record is not bad at all. Smith is a newcomer at Toyama Grouses and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Allen Durham (198-F/C-88) of Shiga L-Stars (#5). Durham showcased his all-around game by recording 23 points, fourteen rebounds (!!!) and eight assists in the last round. He was a key player of Shiga L-Stars, leading his team to a 92-60 easy win against the higher-ranked Nagoya DD (#2, 30-27). The chances of Shiga L-Stars not to end season at such low position in West, however are less than slim as they have already lost 39 games, recording just eighteen victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Durham could try to bring Shiga L-Stars' a little bit higher in the standings. Durham has individually a great season in Japan. After 15 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 13.6rpg (#1 in league). Durham attended one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.
