B.League: Javi GDL a DNP as Ibaraki snaps skid at Osaka’s expense

Ibaraki got back at Osaka, eking out an 81-72 win in the 2021-22 B.League season, Sunday at Ookini Arena Maishima.

Coming off a 72-90 rout just yesterday, the Robots went on a third quarter surge to stun Evessa.

Knotted at 54-all with 2:39 left in the third canto, the Robots went on a 10-2 run sparked by a Marc Trasolini triple, and capped by Kohei Fukuzawa stab underneath.

The Robots maintained their lead in the final frame, with Trasolini and Atsunobu Hirao stopping every rally attempted by Evessa.

The win snapped Ibaraki’s three-game slide to rise to 2-9 in the east while dropping Osaka to 4-7, also in the east.

Trasolini got 22 points on 66-percent shooting from the field with seven rebounds and three steals. Eric Jacobsen added 15 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.

Kenta Tsurukami had 11 points, while Chehales Tapscott and Hirao had 10 points each.

Javi Gomez de Liano did not play in the game.

Kyle Hunt paced Osaka with 29 points and 11 rebounds, while Perry Ellis added 22 points. Ira Brown grabbed 12 rebounds but was limited to just four points on 2-of-12 shooting.

Ibaraki will next face Shibuya on Wednesday at 6:05 PM over at Sumida Ward General Gymnasium.
