Swingman Jeremy Lamb (195-G/F-92) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Tulsa 66ers, receiving a USBasket.com Player of the Week award for round 33. The 20-year old player was the main contributor (30 points, eight rebounds and two assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush Los Angeles D. (#7, 7-15) with 23-point margin 107-84. Tulsa 66ers maintains the 4th position in D-League. Tulsa 66ers is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 12-11 record. In the team's last game Lamb had a remarkable 81.8% from 2-point range. He just recently signed at Tulsa 66ers, being already a very valuable addition to the team. Former University of Connecticut star has very solid stats this year. Lamb is league's best scorer averaging so far 22.8ppg. Lamb is in league's top in and averages impressive 50.9% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old D.J. Kennedy (198-G/F-89, agency: Interperformances) of Erie Bay H.. Kennedy had a very good evening with a double-double of 24 points and 16 rebounds. Bad luck as Erie Bay H. lost that game 96-107 to slightly lower-ranked Ft.Wayne MA (#6, 12-13). Erie Bay H. managed to keep the same 5th spot in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 12-10 record is not bad and everything may still change. Kennedy is a newcomer at Erie Bay H., but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.5ppg (#9). His other stats are also decent: 8.7rpg and 5.2apg.
Third on the list of top players last round was forward Luke Harangody (201-F-88, agency: Priority Sports) of Ft.Wayne MA (#6). Harangody scored 29 points and grabbed seventeen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Ft.Wayne MA, leading his team to a 107-96 win against slightly higher-ranked Erie Bay H. (#5, 12-10). The chances of Ft.Wayne MA ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 13 games, recording just twelve victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Harangody could help Ft.Wayne MA to bring them higher in the standings. Harangody has a very solid season. In 11 games in D-L he scored 20.5ppg. He also has 13.6rpg and and 3PT: 41.7%.
