Oita Miyoshi benches Bagunas, drops to 0-20 in V.League

Bryan Bagunas and his Oita Miyoshi dropped to 20 winless games, Sunday afternoon.

Weisse Adler succumbed to JTEKT anew, 17-25, 21-25, 17-25, in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 Men’s Tournament at the Cycle Shop Kodama Osu Arena in Oita.

The 6-foot-5 outside spiker did not play in today’s match, while fellow import Curtis Stockton only played limited minutes.

The questionable move by Oita coach Naota Kobayashi to not play Bagunas, his best player, had left fans searching for answers.

Pacing Weisse Adler was Kenta Koga with 16 points on 36 spiking attempts.

Yuji Nishida once again led the Stings with 15 points on 10 hits, three block kills, and two service aces.

Felipe Fonteles also had 14 markers of his own, built on nine attacks, three blocks, and two aces.

JTEKT earned its second-straight win after a five-game slide dating back to Dec. 4 last year, hiking its standing to 12-8.

Weisse Adler will try to break their season-long curse when they face fellow cellar-dweller VC Nagano on Saturday, Feb. 6, 1 pm, at the Logitech Arena in Ina, Nagano.
