The Japan Times

Ryukyu Golden Kings shooting guard Shigeyuki Kinjo has become one of the finest perimeter marksman in the bj-league, as evidenced by his 13.3 points-per-game average and a 35-point outing, including six 3-pointers, in an eight-point victory over the Takamatsu Five Arrows on Saturday.

Kinjo, 24, is the Circle K Sunkus Player of the Week, the bj-league announced on Tuesday.

He added 21 points on 8-for-14 shooting, including 4-for-8 from long range, in Ryukyu’s 94-84 win on Sunday.
