Bobby Ray finally gets one over Kiefer as Nagoya snaps Shiga streak in B.League


It took a change of scenery for Ray Parks to finally get one against Kiefer Ravena at the professional level.

With Parks leading the way, Nagoya cruised to a dominant 39-point win over Shiga, 107-68, to extend their win streak to four games in the 2021-22 B.League season, Saturday at Park Arena Komaki.

No longer in minutes restrictions, Parks played 25 minutes, tallying 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting with four rebounds and four assists. He was a plus-25 in the contest.

In contrast, his rival Kiefer Ravena only had five points on 1-of-13 shooting with three assists, three steals, and two rebounds. He was a minus-19 as well.

Parks, a starter, waxed hot right from the get-go, scoring seven points in Nagoya’s 13-2 start.

One-sided was the contest as the Diamond Dolphins even doubled the Lakestars’ total offensive output in the second stanza.

The lead would grow to as high as 41 points in the lopsided affair that raised Nagoya’s slate to 4-3 while snapping Shiga’s four-game winning streak and dropping them to 5-2.

All in all, Nagoya knocked down 13 triples compared to just two for Shiga.

Scott Eatherton was the man in the middle for Nagoya, finishing with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Coty Clarke also had a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds for Nagoya while Takumi Saito, who has become one of Parks’ close friends in the team, added 12 points, five assists, and five rebounds.

Ovie Soko was one of the few bright spots for Shiga in the contest, tallying 27 points. Sean O’Mara added 15 points and eight rebounds.
