Oita Miyoshi misses Bryan Bagunas, suffers 23rd loss in V.League

Filipino superstar Bryan Bagunas was sorely missed by Oita Miyoshi as their losing skid extends to three games, Saturday afternoon.

Weisse Adler yielded to league-leading Suntory in straight sets, 21-25, 22-25, 16-25, in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 men’s tournament at the Beppu Arena.

Bagunas was still out due to some lower back pain hampering him. However, he is eyeing a return next week.

“Next week laban na ulit! Medyo umo-okay na naman (ang likod ko),” the National University product told Tiebreaker Times.

Curtis Stockton carried the fight for Weisse Adler with 18 points while Kota Yamada got 10.

No other Oita player breached at least six points as they dropped to 2-23.

The Sunbirds’ 7-foot-2 giant Dmitriy Muserskiy unleashed 16 points for the victors.

Masahiro Yaganida delivered 12 markers, while Kenya Fujinaka had nine as Suntory rose to 21-2.

The Bagunas-less Oita Miyoshi will have another crack against the Sunbirds tomorrow, 1 pm, at the same arena.
