It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of JX Sunflowers. The hosts trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 50-43 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Swingman Tika Yamamoto (175-91) scored 21 points to lead the charge for the winners and power forward Megumi Shinohara (184-91) chipped in 13 points during the contest. The former international power forward Yuka Mamiya (184-90) responded with 38 points (!!!) (on 17-of-20 shooting from the field). Fujitsu RW maintains fourth position with 16-10 record. Defending champion JX Sunflowers still keep top place with four games lost. They share the position with Toyota A..
