Toshiba trump Toyota in the JBL - Nov 3, 2012

In the first of their weekend match-ups the league-leading Toyota Alvark went head-to-head with the second ranked Toshiba Brave Thunders Friday night in Yoyogi Gym, Tokyo.

Most in the crowd were expecting a home victory for the Alvark after their impressive demolition of the Aishin SeaHorses last Sunday.

Few would have predicted the eventual 49-71 thumping the hosts took at the hands of a Takuya Kita led Toshiba Brave Thunders.

Things started out on an even keel with the early headway made by Toyotas center Philip Ricci (202-F-80, college: Oregon St.), nipping in for four before the visitors found their footing to level the scores at 13 apiece come the end of the 1Q.

The second period saw Toshiba pull ahead, taking a 4-point lead into the half time break, much of their play centered on former Nevada University man Nick Fazekas (211-F-85, college: Nevada).

At this point things were, however, still being played out on a pretty even court.

And then Fazekas caught fire.

Dominating the third period under both baskets, at times almost scoring at will on his way to a rebound/points double double, 13 in the former, including 11 DRs, 19 in the latter, he even offered up a rather odd little dance after one successful penetration of a porous Toyota defence.

Naoto Tsujii added a further 10 points for Toshiba, pitching in a further 8 rebounds, 6 assists and a brace each in the turnover and steals columns.
For the hosts, as was the case against Aishin a week ago, Don Beck 's leading guards, Taishi Ito and Takeki Shonaka showed just how much their own performances affect the team overall, bagging just one field goal from 15 attempts combined!

Philip Ricci topped the score chart for the hosts at 14 but at times went almost single handedly against a Toshiba team looking to make it physical from the tip-off, Ricci drawing four of his teams 22 total fouls.

South Korea retains slim hope of William Jones Cup glory after beating Japan - 3 days ago
SOUTH Korea have kept alive their hopes of winning the William Jones Cup in Taiwan - but Canada and Lithuania remain the title favourites. After seven of nine matches in the relentless tournament at the Taipei Peace International Basketball Hall, Canada and Lithuania lead the standings with six wins each. One win further back is South Korea, who beat Japan 101-81 on day seven. Jong-Kyu Kim (207-C-91) hit 21 points as he finished with a perfect shooting record of 11-for-11, including nine-...   [read more]

Jo Kurino-Dews signs at Toyotsu Fighting Eagles Nagoya - 4 days ago
Toyotsu Fighting Eagles Nagoya (B League D2) landed experienced 37-year old naturalized American forward Jo Kurino-Dews (195-98kg-80, college: Mount Olive) from Shimane Susanoo Magic.

The previous (15-16) season Kurino-Dews played at Dragonflies (NBL). But in 51 games he had only 1.6ppg and 1.8rpg. He has spent his entire career in Japan playing for fi...   [read more]

Seiya Ando agreed terms with Toyota Alvark - 4 days ago
Toyota Alvark Tokyo (B League) strengthened their roster with addition of 25-year old guard Seiya Ando (184-92) from Akita Northern Happinets. In 62 B League games he recorded 10.6ppg, 4.5rpg, 3.0apg and 1.0spg last season. Great year indeed as he was voted to Japanese B League All-Star Game. Among other achievements Ando won NBL Canada Atlantic Division championship title in 2015. He received also Asia-Basket.com All-Asian U18 Championships 2nd Team award back in 2010. Ando was a member...   [read more]
