Kiefer Ravena bounced back from his horrid shooting game yesterday.
However, it did not result in a win, as San-En got back at Shiga. They took a 93-80 victory to snap their nine-game losing streak in the 2021-22 B.League season, Sunday at Hamamatsu Arena.
Coming off a 1-of-10 shooting game in the Lakestars’ 104-100 win, Ravena caught fire in this one. He scored 28 points on 10-of-15 shooting to go along with eight assists, four rebounds, and three steals.
The NeoPhoenix, though, rode a huge third quarter that saw Kazuma Tsuya, Elias Harris, and Robert Carter fire on all cylinder. They also limited the Lakestars to just 5-of-17 from the field to gain a 68-51 lead entering the final frame.
San-En’s lead grew to as high as 24 points, 81-57, with 6:43 left.
Ravena would not go down easily, however, scoring 13 points in the final frame. Unfortunately, the lead was insurmountable to overcome.
San-En went up to 5-28 with the win while dropping Shiga to 10-18.
Harris led San-En with 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Carter and Tsuya finished with 14 and 12 points respectively.
Third did not play in the game due to national team duties
Sean O’ Mara supported Kiefer with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Novar Gadson added 15 points, nine rebounds, and four assists.
Shiga will come back home on Wednesday to host Toyama. San-En, meanwhile, heads to Toyohashi City Gymnasium to take on Tokyo next weekend.
