Mullens
BYRON MULLENS

British-American Center Byron Mullens (213-C-89) had a great game in the last round for Hokkaido L., receiving a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 59.
The 29-year old player had a double-double of 39 points and 14 rebounds, while his team Hokkaido L. maintains the 6th position in their group in Japanese B League. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 49 games and recorded just ten victories. In the team's last game Mullens had a remarkable 64.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Hokkaido L.'s top player in his first season with the team. Byron Mullens averages this season 20.9ppg and 10.1rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old American Davante Gardner (203-PF-91) of league's leader Niigata Albirex. Gardner had a very good evening with a double-double of 34 points and 10 rebounds. It was enough for Niigata Albirex to edge the lower-ranked Yokohama BC (#6, 14-45) 89-88. Of course Niigata Albirex still keep Central's top spot. His team has currently 44-15 record. Gardner is one of the most experienced players at Niigata Albirex and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 27.9ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 11.0rpg and 3.8apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Justin Keenan (202-F/C-88) of Akita NH (#5). Keenan got into 30-points club by scoring 38 points in the last round. He went also for eleven rebounds . Despite Keenan's great performance Akita NH lost 73-78 to the higher-ranked Tochigi Brex (#2, 49-10). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Akita NH can only dream about fighting for top spots in East. They have rather bad season and 17-43 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Keenan he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Keenan has individually a great season in Japan. After 53 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 22.8ppg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Leo Lyons (206-F-87) of Toyama Grouses - 25 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Alex Stepheson (208-F/C-87) of Yokohama BC - 24 points and 21 rebounds
6. Ryan Rossiter (204-F-89) of Tochigi Brex - 24 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists
7. Julian Mavunga (203-PF-90) of Kyoto Hannar. - 29 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Justin Burrell (207-F-88) of Nagoya DD - 23 points and 19 rebounds
9. Joshua Smith (208-C-92) of Toyama Grouses - 20 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Eric Jacobsen (208-PF-94) of Fukuoka Rizing - 16 points, 10 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.
