B.League: Dwight Ramos, Toyama cruise past Gunma for win no. 8


Dwight Ramos and Toyama scored a bounce-back win, taking down Gunma 89-77 in the 2021-22 B.League season, Saturday at Toyama City Gymnasium.

Coming off back-to-back losses against Ray Parks and Nagoya, Kaijuro Matsui took the initiative for the Grouses in the opening frame, scoring eight of his 15 points in the opening frame.

Matsui ended up with a near triple-double with 15 points built on three treys.

Though Gunma rallied back in the third canto, cutting the Toyama lead to just one, 54-53, with 3:36 left, Julian Mavunga and Brice Johnson took charge in a 13-2 rally to restore order.

The lead would not go below the nine-point barrier in the final frame.

Toyama, who rose to 8-14, was led by Joshua Smith, who had 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting from the field with 10 rebounds and six assists. Mavunga also had 15 points, 10 assists, and eight rebounds.

Dwight Ramos was limited to just five points on 2-of-7 shooting with three rebounds and two steals. Naoki Uto added 11 points while Johnson scattered 10 points and eight rebounds.

Gunma dropped to 10-12 and was led by the 18 points of Aki Chambers. Trey Jones added 17 points, six rebounds, and five assists while Kyle Barone finished with a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

The two teams meet again tomorrow.
