Rossiter
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most interesting game of round 40 in the B League was only one-point a home defeat of their biggest opponent Toyota Alvark (29-8) to first ranked Tochigi Brex (30-7) 77-76 in the game for the first place. It ended the two-game winning streak of Toyota Alvark. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The guests trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 18-14 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Tochigi Brex outrebounded Toyota Alvark 49-34 including a 22-8 advantage in offensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Ryan Rossiter (204-89, college: Siena) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 11 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists and the other American import forward Jeffrey Gibbs (188-80, college: Otterbein) who added 13 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. Tochigi Brex's coach Thomas Wisman used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side the former international forward Daiki Tanaka (191-91) responded with 29 points and 6 rebounds (made all of his seven free throws). Tochigi Brex have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 30-7 record. Toyota Alvark at the other side keeps the second place with eight games lost. Tochigi Brex are looking forward to face Toyama Grouses (#6) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Toyota Alvark will play against Shiga L-Stars (#6) and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Important game to mention about took place in Nagoya. Fifth ranked Ryukyu GK (17-22) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging much higher ranked Diamond Dolphins (21-18) 77-75 on Wednesday evening. The winners were led by American forward Reyshawn Terry (203-84, college: N.Carolina) who scored that evening 23 points (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) and Lamont Hamilton supported him with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Ryukyu GK's coach Tsutomu Isa allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even a double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds by American forward Jerome Tillman (201-87, college: Ohio, agency: Inception Sports) did not help to save the game for Diamond Dolphins. Ryukyu GK maintains fifth position with 17-22 record. Diamond Dolphins lost third consecutive game. They keep the second place with 18 games lost. Ryukyu GK will play against higher ranked Chiba Jets (#3) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Diamond Dolphins will play against the league's second-placed Sanen Neophoenix in Hamamatsu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Fifth-ranked Akita Happinets (11-28) gave a tough game to third ranked Chiba Jets (26-13) on Wednesday. Chiba Jets managed to secure only three-point victory 67-64. However their fans expected easier game. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Akita Happinets. Americans were the main players on the court. Tyler Stone fired 24 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Evan Ravenel produced 22 points and 6 rebounds for lost side. Chiba Jets have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 26-13 record having seven points less than leader Tochigi Brex. Loser Akita Happinets keep the fifth place with 28 games lost. They share the position with Sendai 89ers. Chiba Jets will meet Ryukyu GK (#5) in the next round. Akita Happinets will play against the league's leader Aishin Sea Horses in Kariya and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Osaka Evessa (19-20) against sixth ranked Shiga L-Stars (9-30) on Wednesday night. Host Osaka Evessa was defeated by Shiga L-Stars in Osaka 84-68. It was a very good performance for Tomonobu Hasegawa who helped to win the game recording 24 points. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Shiga L-Stars maintains sixth position with 9-30 record. Osaka Evessa at the other side keeps the third place with 20 games lost. Shiga L-Stars' next round opponent will be league's second-placed Toyota Alvark in Tokyo and it may be quite challenging game. Osaka Evessa will play on the road against Niigata Albirex and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Niigata Albirex (19-20) against fourth ranked Hitachi Sunrockers (18-19) on Wednesday night. Visiting Niigata Albirex was defeated by Hitachi Sunrockers in Tokyo 94-84. Worth to mention a great performance of Ira Brown who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists.

(#4) at home in the next round. Niigata Albirex will play against Osaka Evessa and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
