B.League: Sotto, Hiroshima fall to Parks-less Nagoya

Kai Sotto and Hiroshima saw their three-game winning streak in the 2022-23 B.League season snapped by a short-handed Nagoya squad, bowing 88-90, Wednesday at Dolphins Arena.

The Diamond Dolphins only had eight players for the game. Ray Parks was one of those players who missed the tilt due to an injury.

Despite being limited to eight points, four rebounds, four assists, and four blocks, Sotto played a vital role for the Dragons.

However, Coty Clarke’s game-winning jump shot at the buzzer ended the Dragonflies’ winning streak, and Nagoya continued their winning streak, improving their record to 30-13.

Meanwhile, Dwight Ramos led Hokkaido to a convincing 96-82 win against Gunma at Hokkai Kita-yale.

Ramos scored 26 points, shot 4-of-8 from deep, and added six rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks. Brock Motum, Shawn Long, Tsukasa Nakano, and Yuta Matsushita also contributed significantly to Hokkaido’s 12-32 record.

In another game, Kiefer Ravena helped Shiga earn an 88-80 victory over the Fighting Eagles Nagoya at Nagoya Biwajima Sports Center.

Ivan Buva and Kelvin Martin also contributed to the Lakes’ impressive win, improving their record to 7-36.

Elsewhere, Carl Tamayo and Ryuku extended their winning streak to five games by beating Matthew Wright and home team Kyoto, 86-80.

Tamayo had a short stint but made the most of his playing time, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds. Jack Cooley led the Golden Kings with 25 points and 14 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Thirdy Ravena San-En suffered their fourth straight loss at the hands of the Shinshu, falling 79-68 and sliding to a 17-26 record at White Ring.
