B.League: Juan GDL scores 10 as Tokyo Z swept by Kagawa

Juan Gomez de Liaño played more minutes compared to his debut yesterday. Still, Tokyo Z had a worse showing against Kagawa in their second outing in as many days.

Gomez de Liaño and Earthfriends suffered a crushing 85-100 loss at the hands of the Five Arrows to close out their opening weekend campaign in the 2021-22 B.League Division II tournament, Sunday afternoon at Kanonji City Gymnasium.

Gomez de Liano played just 3:33 against the same team yesterday for two points, an assists, and a steal with two turnovers. This time, he was on the court for 16 minutes.

The former University of the Philippines combo guard tallied 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting from the field, 2-of-5 from downtown. He also had two rebounds and a steal.

Tokyo Z head coach Hugo Lopez called up the spitfire Filipino guard during the second stanza as the Five Arrows tried to pull away. Gomez de Liaño scored five points during that span to keep his side within striking range.

However, Kagawa went on a huge third quarter spurt. They scored 29 points while limiting Tokyo Z to just 14 points, nabbing their second win of the season.

Former Shiga import Angus Brandt once again had an efficient outing with 26 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field, with eight rebounds and four assists.

Terrance Woodbury added 20 points and seven assists, while Hiroki Taniguchi also had seven assists along with 15 points.

Eddy Norelia paced Tokyo Z once more with 16 points, eight rebounds, and four assists. Combo guard Mark Burton added 15 markers.
