Akita locks Kiefer Ravena anew as Shiga suffers third straight loss in B.League


Playing hurt, Kiefer Ravena once again struggled against Akita as Shiga was dealt a 67-92 defeat to close out the 2021-22 B.League week, Monday at Ukaru-chan Arena.

For the second straight game, Ravena fouled out in the contest, finishing with nine points on 4-of-11 shooting and five turnovers.

Doomed from the start were the Lakestars, falling behind 10-24 early.

Though cutting the lead down to 10, 29-39, at the half, the Lakestars went cold in the third canto, putting up just 12 points on 6-of-19 shooting from the field.

On the other end, Alex Davis and Takatoshi Furukawa dropped eight points each during the frame to help extend the Northern Happinets’ lead to 64-41.

Akita would maintain its lead to close out the game and raise their slate to 17-9.

Jordan Glynn got 23 points built on five treys for Akita while Davis tallied 14 points, 16 rebounds, and two blocks.

Colton Iverson also notched a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds while Furukawa added 14 points.

Novar Gadson led Shiga with 16 points on 16 attempts with seven rebounds and six assists. Ovie Soko tallied 14 points and nine rebounds as Sean O’ Mara was held down to just four points and five rebounds.

Shiga fell to 9-17 in the standings.

The Lakestars will next face Mikawa at Wing Arena this weekend.
