Experienced American-Filipino Eugene Phelps (198-F-1990) delivered an outstanding performance in the last round for league leader Ehime OV, earning him the Hoops Agents B2 League Player of the Week honor for round 3.
The 32-year-old big led his club to an 87-78 victory against Fukuoka R. (#6, 1-3) with a double-double of 23 points and 16 rebounds. As a result, Ehime OV was able to maintain their lead in the Japanese B2 League. If they hadn’t dropped that one game early in the season, they would have been even better.
Despite having a strong 3-1 record, Ehime OV shouldn’t be too confident about maintaining first place. Phelps had a fantastic 61.5% shooting from the free throw line in the team’s most recent game.
The 4th in points ranking in the league
He has worked at Ehime OV for a long time, and throughout that time, he has continuously developed. This year’s statistics for a graduate of Long Beach State University are really outstanding. Phelps averages a respectable 1.8 bpg and 50.8% FGP, and he is fourth in the league in points (40.8ppq).
The second most impressive performance in the previous round’s games came from Fukuoka R.’s teenage American point guard Marvelle Harris (196-PG-1993, agency: Slash Sports). Harris wowed spectators with 34 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists. Unfortunately, Fukuoka R. lost the game 78-87 against Ehime OV (3-1). The season is still young, and this lost game may not be as significant if they start winning games. Let’s see what happens next round. Harris is a rookie to Fukuoka R. and appears to have had no difficulty becoming one of the team’s leaders. With 27. 3ppq (#2), he is one of the league’s top scorers.
American Evan Ravenel (204-C/F-1989) of Chiba (#3) was the third best performer previous round.
Ravenel finished with 25 points and 12 rebounds (itl). Despite Ravenel’s outstanding effort, Chiba fell to second-ranked Yamagata 77-85. However, his squad cannot rely on a single player since he requires the assistance of his colleagues, especially in such an important game. Ravenel is having a fantastic season.
In four games in Japan, he averaged 15.8 points per game.
