Four Toshiba Thunders players scored in double figures. Toshiba Thunders' coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Aishin Sea Horses have an impressive ten-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 17-3 record behind leader Toyota Alvark. Toshiba Thunders at the other side keep the fourth place with ten games lost. Aishin Sea Horses' next round opponent will be league's leader Toyota Alvark in Fuchu and it will be for sure the game of the week. Toshiba Thunders will play on the road against Panasonic Trians in Osaka and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
