He had the game-high 24 points adding five rebounds and nine assists for Canterbury in his team's victory, helping them to outclass, the league's bottom-ranked team Nelson G. (#6, 0-3) with 34-point margin 114-80. Canterbury is placed at 4th position in New Zealand league. Canterbury 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 2-2 record. In the team's last game Kendle had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 7 attempts.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Mitchell McCarron (191-G-92) of league's second-best SC Rangers.

The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
