Josh Davis
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in B League D2.

Fourth-ranked Orange Vikings (24-24) made lots of trouble for first ranked Shimane Magic (40-7) in Matsuyama on Sunday. The visitors from Shimane managed to secure only two-point victory 80-78. However their fans expected easier game. The best player for the winners was American forward Josh Davis (203-91, college: San Diego St.) who had a double-double by scoring 18 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists. The other American import center Wayne Marshall (211-86, college: Temple) chipped in 18 points and 12 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). American forward Lawrence Blackledge (206-86, college: Marquette, agency: Interperformances) produced 16 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks for the hosts. Orange Vikings' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Shimane Magic maintains first position with 40-7 record. Orange Vikings at the other side dropped to the third place with 24 games lost. They share the position with Yamagata. Shimane Magic are looking forward to face league's second-placed Dragonflies in Hiroshima in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Orange Vikings will have a break next round.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Fukushima (26-22) against sixth ranked Iwate Big Bulls (12-36) on Sunday night. Host Fukushima was crushed by Iwate Big Bulls in Fukushima 96-74. American power forward Nicchaeus Doaks (201-87, college: Chattanooga) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 14 rebounds and 4 blocks. Donald Lawson contributed with 17 points and 14 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for the winners. Iwate Big Bulls' coach felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Cedric Bozeman (198-83, college: UCLA) replied with 19 points for Fukushima. Iwate Big Bulls maintains sixth position with 12-36 record. Fukushima lost third consecutive game. They keep the second place with 22 games lost. Iwate Big Bulls will play against higher ranked Aomori Watts (#5) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

Very important is a road loss of third ranked Yamagata (24-24) against fifth ranked Cyberdyne IR (22-26) on Sunday night. Visiting Yamagata was crushed by Cyberdyne IR in Tsukuba 92-66. Scootie Randall had a double-double by scoring 20 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Yuichi Ishikawa responded with a double-double by scoring 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Cyberdyne IR have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place. Yamagata lost third consecutive game. They keep the third position with 24 games lost. They share it with Ehime OV. Cyberdyne IR will meet at home league's second-placed Fukushima in the next round and it may be the game of the week.

Toyotsu FE's next round opponent will be Tokyo Excel. (#4) on the road. Tokyo Z will play against the league's leader Nishinomiya S. in Hyogo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Aomori. First ranked Gunma faced 4th ranked Aomori Watts. Guests from Gunma (31-17) defeated host Aomori Watts (21-27) 70-65. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Aomori Watts. The best player for the winners was Abdullahi Kuso who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds.
