There were just 14 rounds played in Regular Season of B League D2 and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

Forward Herbert Hill (208-84, college: Providence) contributed with 15 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Anthony McHenry (202-83, college: Georgia Tech) replied with a double-double by scoring 13 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists for Shinshu BW.
