B.League: Thirdy, San-En suffer three-game sweep at hands of Shimane

For the third time in five days, San-En faced Shimane on Wednesday.

And just like the first two games, the result was the same as the NeoPhoenix were given a rough 65-91 beating by the Susanoo Magic in the 2021-22 B.League season, Wednesday at Toyohashi City Gymnasium.

Rough was the start of San-En as it went just 8-of-19 from the field for 16 points while allowing the visitors to shoot 66.6-percent from the field for 25 as the duo of Nick Kay and Ryosuke Shiramane blasted the NeoPhoenix defense.

It got worse in the second stanza as Perrin Buford and Seiya Ando joined in the act, giving their side an imposing 52-31 edge.

The Susanoo Magic did not let up from their, leading by as many as 29 points, 91-62, with 56 seconds left in the game.

Shimane completed its sweep of San-En with the win as it also took an 87-71 win last Saturday and an 88-80 victory a day later. Both of those games were held at Hamamatsu Arena.

The Susanoo Magic went up to 34-10 with the win while dropping the NeoPhoenix to an 8-34 record.

All five Shimane starters finished in double-figures in the contest.

Kay led Shimane with 19 points, six rebounds, five assists, and two steals while naturalized Japanese player Nyika Williams got 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Buford tallied 16 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds while Shiramane and Ando chipped in 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Max Histake was the sole double-digit scorer for San-En with 20 points to go along with 20 rebounds as Elias Harris went just 4-of-16 from the field for nine points.
