There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in WJBL.

The most exciting game of round 27 in the WJBL took place in Kawasaki. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of second-best Toyota A. (22-5) to fourth ranked Fujitsu RW (17-10) 62-61 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the eight-game winning streak of Toyota A.. The hosts trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 20-14 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was international forward Yoko Nagi (175-82) who scored 22 points and 9 rebounds. Power forward Ishikawa Mai (179-85) chipped in 12 points and 8 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was international guard Maya Kawahara (167-87) who recorded 19 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Fujitsu RW maintains fourth place with 17-10 record. Toyota A. at the other side keeps the second position with five games lost. Fujitsu RW are again looking forward to face league's second-placed Toyota A. in Nagoya in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
