The Japan Times can authoritatively report that Draelon Burns and Thomas Kennedy both made 9 of 14 shots from inside the 3-point arc and led the Yokohama B-Corsairs to a 92-81 victory over the Akita Northern Happinets in their bj-league series opener on Tuesday.

Burns, who'll play in Sunday's All-Star Game at Ariake Colosseum, scored a game-high 27 points, adding 13 rebounds and eight assists off the bench. Kennedy poured in 25 points and grabbed 11 boards. Kenji Yamada finished with 16 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, for Yokohama (19-8 overall, 10-5 home contests), Masayuki Kabaya contributed nine points and Senegalese big man Pape Faye Mour added eight.

The B-Corsairs held the visitors to 15 points in both the second and fourth quarters, outscoring them 51-30 in that span in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa Prefecture.

Marshall Brown led Akita (14-9) with 26 points on 9-for-15 shooting overall, and knocked down 3 of 6 3-pointers. Dan Fitzgerald added 10 points and seven rebounds and Dion Harris had eight. Ryosuke Mizumachi, Shigehiro Taguchi and Yuki Yamaguchi all scored seven points apiece for the Happinets, who led 27-21 entering the second quarter.

The C-Corsairs are 3-0 against the Happinets this season.

Akita attempted more 3s (13-for-37) than 2s (17-for-34).

The series shifts to Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium for Wednesday's rematch at 7 p.m.

89ers acquire Hargrow

High-scoring guard Maurice Hargrow has joined the Sendai 89ers, the bj-league team announced Tuesday.

Hargrow fills a roster spot vacated by forward Kevin Coble, who was released on Monday.

As a Chiba Jets standout in 2011-12, Hargrow, a University of Minnesota product, and ex-Rizing Fukuoka star Kevin Palmer shared the league's No. 2 scoring spot among all players (21.6 points per game).

"Maurice Hargrow brings us veteran leadership and experience," Sendai coach Bob Pierce told The Japan Times on Tuesday. "His ability to create his own shot, and to create shots for others, will be extremely valuable during the second half of the season."

Coble, who attended Northwestern University, appeared in 24 games for Sendai, averaging 13.0 points. He shot 31.1 percent on 3-pointers and 40.4 from inside the arc.

Sendai (9-15) is currently in ninth place in the 11-team Eastern Conference, with three less wins than the East's current sixth-place team, the Jets (12-12).

Six teams in each conference qualify for the playoffs.
