B.League: Thirdy Ravena’s all-around game not enough to snap San-En’s skid

The woes of Thirdy Ravena and San-En continued on Christmas day, suffering a harsh 69-97 beatdown at the hands of Mikawa in the 2021-22 B.League season at Wing Arena Kariya.

Crushing was the defeat as it was the NeoPhoenix’s 14th straight loss. San-En, who dropped to 3-19 in the B.League West, have yet to win a game since October 24.

And San-En could not stop Davante Gardner’s second quarter explosion that led to the rout.

With the game knotted at 24-all to end the opening frame, the product of Marquette dropped 13 of his 28 points during the second stanza, going 6-of-7 from the field to give the Seahorses a 49-42 edge.

Gardner continued his rampage in the third canto, scoring nine points, while Avi Schafer joined in by scoring eight as Mikawa blew the game wide open.

A Masashi Hosoya trey with 1:07 left in the third frame gave Mikawa a 97-66 lead.

A demoralized NeoPhoenix team only scored nine points in the final frame.

Mikawa, who went up to 13-9, saw Gardner also rack up 11 rebounds.

Jarrod Uthoff added 20 points while Schaffer got 12 points and seven rebounds.

Thirdy Ravena scattered 10 points, six rebounds, three assists, and a steal for San-En.

Yoshiyuki Matsuwaki and Elias Harris both had 13 points each with the latter also grabbing seven rebounds. Robert Carter added 11 points.

Both teams face off again tomorrow.
