B.League: Kiefer-led Shiga rally falls short vs Wright’s Kyoto

The Ravena brothers could not take home wins in Wednesday’s 2022-23 B.League action on Wednesday.

Kiefer’s late-game heroics fell short at Kyoto City Gymnasium after Shiga suffered a 76-78 defeat at the hands of Matthew Wright and Kyoto.

Kiefer rallied the Lakes from 10 down, cutting the lead to two after a booming triple with nine seconds left.

Ivan Buva was then able to steal the ball from Yoshiaki Kubota but Kiefer was not able to make the tying layup.

Kiefer ended up with 12 points, five assists, three rebounds, and a steal but it was not enough.

Shiga fell to 10-38 but still maintained their lead over the bottom two teams. Kyoto, meanwhile, went up to 17-31.

Wright had himself a game with 22 points, five assists, and three rebounds.

Thirdy, meanwhile, had a turnover-plagued game in San-En’s 63-92 defeat at the hands of an eight-man Nagoya team at Dolphins Arena.

Thirdy committed eight turnovers and only had five points, four rebounds, and two assists.

The NeoPhoenix fell to 19-29. Meanwhile, the Diamond Dolphins went up to 35-13 to keep in range with Hiroshima for the third spot in the west.

Bobby Ray Parks Jr. missed the game.

Good pals Kai Sotto and Carl Tamayo, meanwhile, had limited production in their respective games.

Sotto only had two points, three rebounds, and two assists in just 13 minutes of action in Hiroshima’s 73-65 win over FE Nagoya at Nagoya Biwajima Sports Center.

On the other hand, Tamayo only played six minutes in Ryukyu’s 88-89 loss to Osaka at Okinawa Arena.
