B.League: Kai Sotto puts up solid line as Hiroshima completes sweep of Ibaraki

Kai Sotto is proving to be a force in the B.League.

The 7-foot-3 Filipino sensation had another solid outing for Hiroshima, helping the Dragonflies rack up an 87-83 victory over Ibaraki, Sunday at Adastria Mito Arena.

The former Adelaide 36er filled up the stat sheet with 14 points, nine boards, three assists, and two blocks, helping Hiroshima rise to a 31-11 record.

Kerry Blackshear led the Dragonflies with 22 points and five rebounds, while Dwayne Evans added 15. Isaiah Murphy also finished with 14 markers.

Asahi Tajima paced the Robots, who fell to 15-27, with 14 points, while Eric Jacobsen tallied 13 points and six rebounds.

Over at the Toyohashi City Gymnasium, Thirdy Ravena once again came up huge for San-En. He scored 15 points and collared 12 rebounds for his second straight double-double.

Unfortunately, the NeoPhoenix fell to Sendai (14-28) in overtime, 83-86, dropping the home team to a 17-25 record.

Meanwhile, Carl Tamayo had four rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block in Ryukyu’s 69-58 win over Shinshu at White Ring.

The Golden Kings went up to 33-9 while the Brave Warriors dropped to 19-23.

Kiefer Ravena, on the other hand, went scoreless in Shiga’s 85-94 loss to Toyoma at Toyama City Gymnasium.

The Lakes dropped to 6-36 — tied with Niigata at last place.

Finally, Matthew Wright’s 14-point outing went for naught as Chiba (38-4) romped Kyoto (16-26), 83-62, at Kyoto City Gymnasium.
