B.League: Aquino sits as Kishimoto winner breaks Shinshu’s heart

Ryuichi Kishimoto nailed a clutch trey with 2.9 seconds left to lift Ryukyu to a come-from-behind 86-85 win over Shinshu, Wednesday at White Ring.

The league-leading Golden Kings rallied from as much as 13 points down in the contest, cutting the deficit down to one, 84-83, after a trey by Kishimoto with 14 seconds left.

On the other end, Anthony McHenry split his charities to give Ryukyu a shot at the winner.

With no timeouts left, Kishimoto ran the length of the floor, knocking down a booming triple from the top of the arc to give Ryukyu the lead.

Also with no timeouts left, Reo Maeda had no other choice but to throw a Hail Mary which missed as the Brave Warriors’ upset bid fell short.

Ryukyu went up to 24-3 with the win while snapping Shinshu’s two-game winning streak. The Brave Warriors fell to 12-17.

Ryukyu saw five Golden Kings score in double-figures with Kishimoto and Jack Cooley leading the way with 16 points each. Cooley also grabbed 12 rebounds.

Keita Imamura and Hayato Maki both got 13 points apiece, knocking down two triples each, while Allen Durham produced a double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds as well.

Maeda’s 22-point game went for naught for Shinshu. The Japanese sniper knocked down four treys in the game.

Both Wayne Marshall and McHenry added 20 and 19 points, respectively, while each grabbing eight boards.

Fil-Japanese Matt Aquino did not play in the game.

Up next for Shinshu is Osaka this weekend, still at White Ring.
