High-scoring forward Michael Parker is the Rizing Fukuoka’s undisputed No. 1 player.

After another sensational weekend — a 22-point, 11-rebound, three-assist, three-steal, two-block effort in Saturday’s win over the Shiga Lakestars and a 44-point performance and a number of other big statistical numbers a day later in Fukuoka’s 96-93 overtime triumph — the bj-league recognized him the Circle K Sunkus Player of the Week, it was announced on Tuesday.

Parker leads the bj-league in scoring (26.3 points per game).
