B.League: Kiefer Ravena overcomes injury, but Shiga streak snapped by Hiroshima

Kiefer Ravena and Shiga were dealt a 67-92 beatdown by Hiroshima in the 2021-22 B.League season, Wednesday at Hiroshima Sun Plaza Hall.

Coming off two straight wins, the Lakestars were caught off guard by the trio of Gregory Echenike, Isaiah Murphy, and Thomas Kennedy in the second stanza, falling behind 51-35 at the half.

With four minutes left at the half, Ravena’s left knee was caught by a stumbling Shogo Asayama.

Though Ravena returned and rallied Shiga in the third canto, Kennedy took charge in the final stanza as the Dragonflies went up to 15-9 in the standings.

Kennedy had 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting for Hiroshima while Nick Mayo got a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Echenique added 15 points and six rebounds while Charles Jackson chipped in 13 points and eight rebounds.

Sean O’ Mara paced Shiga with 23 points and 14 rebounds while Ovie Soko was held down to just 12 points and five rebounds.

Shackled was Ravena in the game, finishing with just eight points on 2-of-11 shooting with four assists. He had five turnovers as Shiga dropped to 9-15 entering the new year.

Shiga will face Akita on January 2 and 3 at Ukaruchan Arena.
