Sixth-ranked Shiga L-Stars (10-35) made lots of trouble for first ranked Tochigi Brex (36-9) on Sunday. The visitors from Tochigi managed to secure only two-point victory 82-80.

The best player for the winners was American power forward Ryan Rossiter (204-89, college: Siena) who had a double-double by scoring 30 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. His fellow American import forward Jeffrey Gibbs (188-80, college: Otterbein) chipped in 9 points and 6 rebounds. Tochigi Brex's coach Thomas Wisman used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game.
