Canadian forward Bikramjit Gill (201-92, college: Ball St.) produced 25 points and guard Hiroshi Fujita (190-92) added 9 points and 5 assists respectively for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Shimane Magic maintains first position with 44-10 record. Kagoshima lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with 47 games lost. Shimane Magic will face Orange Vikings (#4) in Matsuyama in the next round.
