The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 10 rounds. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Tochigi Brex (40-10) on the court of third ranked Chiba Jets on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by Chiba Jets 92-80. It ended at the same time the eight-game winning streak of Tochigi Brex. Americans were the main players on the court. Worth to mention a great performance of Tyler Stone (203-91, college: SE Missouri St., agency: Diamond Sports) who helped to win the game recording 29 points and center Hilton Armstrong (210-84, college: Connecticut) who added 14 points and 10 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side forward Jeffrey Gibbs (188-80, college: Otterbein) responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Chiba Jets maintains third position with 35-15 record having nine points less than leader Tochigi Brex. Tochigi Brex at the other side still keeps top place with ten games lost. They share the position with SeaHorses. Chiba Jets are again looking forward to face league's leader Tochigi Brex at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Tochigi Brex will have a break next round.
Sixth-ranked Shiga L-Stars (12-38) gave a tough game to second ranked Ryukyu GK (25-25). The visitors from Okinawa managed to secure only two-point victory 75-73. However their fans expected much easier game. The winners were led by American power forward Lamont Hamilton (208-84, college: St.John's) who scored that evening 14 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists and Syota Tsuyama supported him with 14 points. Even 14 points and 7 assists by guard Narito Namizato (172-89) did not help to save the game for Shiga L-Stars. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Ryukyu GK have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 25-25 record having nineteen points less than leader Tochigi Brex, which they share with Hitachi SR. Shiga L-Stars at the other side keep the sixth place with 38 games lost. Ryukyu GK will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Shiga L-Stars will play again at home against the league's second-placed Ryukyu GK (#2) and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Kanagawa. First ranked host Toshiba Thunders (43-8) defeated their biggest opponent Sanen Neophoenix (27-24) 89-76. Nick Fazekas fired a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!) and 16 rebounds for the winners. Josh Childress produced a double-double by scoring 27 points and 13 rebounds for lost side. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Toshiba Thunders have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 43-8 record. Loser Sanen Neophoenix keeps the second place with 24 games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
