Carino, Aomori dealt 35-point loss by Sendai in B.League


Coming off a 22-point rout just yesterday, Kemark Carino and Aomori struggled even more in their second round outing against Sendai in the 2021-22 B.League Division II season.

The Wat’s suffered a crushing 88-53 loss to the 89ers, Sunday at the Xebio Arena in Sendai.

Unlike their slow start yesterday, Aomori was able to keep close with Sendai, falling behind by just a solitary point, 20-19, behind the 11 first quarter points of Renaldo Dixon.

Masaharu Kataoka though caught fire in the second frame, scoring on two treys in a 22-point second quarter for Sendai. On the other end, Aomori only put up 11 points.

It was all downhill for the Wat’s from there, struggling to put up points in the second half, especially in the final frame. Aomori only put up seven points in the last 10 minutes of the game, falling behind by as much as 37 points, 88-51, with 1:23 left.

Justin Burrell led the 10-5 Sendai with 22 points on 11-of-13 shooting from the field with eight rebounds.

Jerome Meyinsse scored 19 points from off the bench while Devin Oliver had 18 points. The two combined to shoot 14-of-18 from the field.

Kataoka added 12 points, all from deep.

Aomori, who went down to 1-14 after suffering their ninth straight loss, was paced by the 17 points and 11 rebounds of Dixon.

Carino had four points on 2-of-5 shooting in a foul-plagued game.

Aomori heads to Roth Arena this weekend to face Nara.
