Nishinomiya S. dominated down low during the game scoring 64 of its points in the paint compared to Tokyo Z's 28. They outrebounded Tokyo Z 48-32 including a 37-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of swingman Naoki Tani (193-88) who helped to win the game recording 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists and American forward Larry Owens (201-83, college: ORU, agency: Three Eye Sports) who added 15 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. Nishinomiya S.'s coach felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American center Will Creekmore (205-89, college: Missouri St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Toyotsu FE. Tokyo Z at the other side keeps the third place with 30 games lost.
