Osaka Evessa star Lynn Washington lifted his team to a pair of wins last weekend. For his extraordinary efforts, the power forward was named the Circle K Sunkus Player of the Week, the bj-league announced on Tuesday.

Washington had a 21-point, 21-rebound, three-assist, three-steal, two-block effort on Saturday against the Rizing Fukuoka. A day later, he had 27 points and 17 rebounds.

He is the league’s No. 2 scorer (24.5 points per game) and is No. 3 in rebounds (13.5).
