der List
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in B League D2.

The most exciting game of round 40 in the B League D2 took place in Nagano. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 3rd ranked Kumamoto V. (29-9) to sixth ranked Shinshu BW (11-28) 83-82 on Sunday evening. The hosts trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 20-16 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of Dutch power forward Jeroen van-der-List (213-89, college: Indian Hills CC) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds and Canadian center Chad Posthumus (211-91, college: Morehead St.) who added 18 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Shinshu BW's coach Ryutaro Onodera used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side American forward Reginald Warren (204-81, college: W.Florida) responded with 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Shinshu BW maintains sixth position with 11-28 record. Kumamoto V. at the other side keeps the third place with nine games lost. Shinshu BW are looking forward to face league's second-placed Fukushima on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Kumamoto V. will play against Aomori Watts and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Yamagata (20-18) against fifth ranked Tokyo Excel. (14-23) on Sunday night. Visiting Yamagata was defeated by Tokyo Excel. in a tough game in Tokyo 70-74. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Yamagata. The winners were led by guard Tatsuya Nishiyama (171-88) who scored that evening 15 points and 9 assists and Hiroaki Tobita supported him with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Even a double-double of 20 points and 15 rebounds by American center Markhuri Sanders-Frison (203-88, college: California) did not help to save the game for Yamagata. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Tokyo Excel. maintains fifth position with 14-23 record. Yamagata at the other side keeps the third place with 18 games lost. Tokyo Excel. will play against league's leader Gunma on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Yamagata will play against Kagoshima in Renova and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Aomori. One of their biggest challengers host Aomori Watts (16-22) lost to fourth ranked Orange Vikings (18-20) 88-81. Craig Williams fired a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Alan Wiggins produced a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds for lost side. Aomori Watts' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Orange Vikings have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 18-20 record which they share with defeated Aomori Watts. Loser Aomori Watts keep the fourth place with 22 games lost. Orange Vikings will meet at home Iwate Big Bulls (#6) in the next round. Aomori Watts will play against Kumamoto V. and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Tokyo. 3rd ranked host Tokyo Z (16-23) lost to second ranked Shimane Magic (31-6) 73-58. It was a very good performance for Ryan Reid who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds. Shimane Magic have an impressive 13-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. Tokyo Z at the other side keeps the third place with 23 games lost. Shimane Magic's next round opponent will be Bambitious Nara (#4) at home. Tokyo Z will play against the league's second-placed Dragonflies in Hiroshima and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
B League D2 top team - Toyotsu FE (28-10) had no problems winning another game on Sunday. This time they crushed fifth ranked Cyberdyne IR (14-24) in Tsukuba 90-65. Worth to mention a quality performance of Solomon Alabi who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Toyotsu FE maintains first position with 28-10 record. Cyberdyne IR lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 24 games lost. Toyotsu FE will face Kagawa FA (#5) in Takamatsu in the next round. Cyberdyne IR will play on the road against the league's second-placed Nishinomiya S. in Hyogo and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 40: Fukushima won against Kagawa FA on the opponent's court 83-79. Iwate Big Bulls unfortunately lost to Nishinomiya S. in a home game 53-65. Kagoshima recorded a loss to Bambitious Nara on the road 80-85.

B League D2 top team - Toyotsu FE (28-10) had no problems winning another game on Sunday. This time they crushed fifth ranked Cyberdyne IR (14-24) in Tsukuba 90-65. The game was mostly controlled by Toyotsu FE. Cyberdyne IR was better in second period 21-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a quality performance of Nigerian center Solomon Alabi (216-88, college: Florida St.) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds and forward Shyuhei Muto (192-91) who added 17 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side American forward Scootie Randall (198-90, college: Temple) responded with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his eight free throws) and his fellow American import power forward Rick Rickert (211-83, college: Minnesota) produced a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds. Four Cyberdyne IR players scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Toyotsu FE maintains first position with 28-10 record. Cyberdyne IR lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 24 games lost. Toyotsu FE will face Kagawa FA (#5) in Takamatsu in the next round. Cyberdyne IR will play on the road against the league's second-placed Nishinomiya S. in Hyogo and hope to win that game.
