Brennan
McElroy
There were just 7 rounds played in Regular Season of B League D3 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 derby games, favorites losing the games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Tokyo HT as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Tokyo HT smashed bottom-ranked Tokyo Big Blue at home 98-61. Tokyo HT dominated down low during the game scoring 72 of its points in the paint compared to Tokyo Big Blue's 44. They outrebounded Tokyo Big Blue 57-26 including a 41-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. Tokyo HT looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Brennan McElroy (201-91, college: Indianapolis) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). His fellow American import center Wendell Lewis (208-89, college: Alabama St., agency: HMS) contributed with 14 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. point guard Kota Goto (176-94) answered with 16 points and 4 steals for Tokyo Big Blue. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Tokyo HT have a solid series of four victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Tokyo Big Blue at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. Tokyo Big Blue will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. Tokyo HT will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Tokyo Excel.. It will be extra interesting game as Tokyo Excel. is their local rival from Tokyo.
Undefeated Saitama Broncos (3-1) recorded its first loss at the home court. Hosts were rolled over by seventh ranked Toyoda Gosei (2-2) 101-65. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Saitama Broncos. It was a great evening for American forward Patrick Simon (203-92, college: Seattle Pacific) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 11 rebounds. Ryoma Yanagiuchi helped adding 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals. At the losing side point guard Nishi Yutaro (176-92) responded with 23 points. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Toyoda Gosei moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Otsuka A. Saitama Broncos at the other side dropped to the second position with one game lost. Toyoda Gosei will play against Kagoshima (#7) in Renova in the next round. Saitama Broncos will play on the road against Tokyo Cinq R. (#8) and hope to get back on the winning track.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tokyo: Tokyo Excel. (#3) and Tokyo Cinq R. (#8). Tokyo Excel. (2-0) crushed visiting Tokyo Cinq R. (1-3) by 26 points 106-80. It was an exceptional evening for Justin Herold who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!) and 11 rebounds (on 16-of-20 shooting from the field). Drew Martin came up with 34 points (!!!) for Tokyo Cinq R. in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Tokyo Excel. maintains third place with 2-0 record having 2 victories less than leader Tokyo HT. Loser Tokyo Cinq R. dropped to the seventh position with three games lost. They share it with Kagoshima. Tokyo Excel.'s supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tokyo to the arena Tokyo HT.
Another exciting game was again a derby between two teams from Tokyo: Tokyo Excel. (#3) and Tokyo Cinq R. (#8). Tokyo Excel. (2-0) won against visiting Tokyo Cinq R. (1-3) 75-69.

Kagoshima's fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after three consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Tokyo, where they defeated Otsuka A. (2-2) 77-63 on Saturday. American players dominated the game. It was a very good performance for Darnell Martin who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 25 points and 15 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Despite that victory Kagoshima went down to seventh position due to points difference, which they share with Tokyo Cinq R. Loser Otsuka A. dropped to the fourth place with two games lost. Kagoshima will face higher ranked Toyoda Gosei (#5) in Aichi in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Tokyo HT - Tokyo Big Blue 100-53

Very predictable result when leader Tokyo HT (4-0) rolled over at home bottom-ranked Tokyo Big Blue (0-4) 100-53 on Saturday. Tokyo HT dominated down low during the game scoring 76 of its points in the paint compared to Tokyo Big Blue's 36. They outrebounded Tokyo Big Blue 53-32 including a 40-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. Tokyo HT looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by Tokyo Big Blue's players. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Tokyo HT made 7 blocks. Quite impressive performance for American center Wendell Lewis (208-89, college: Alabama St., agency: HMS) who helped to win the game recording 28 points and 6 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field). His fellow American import power forward Alex Jones (206-87, college: Seattle) contributed with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Forward Bryan Simpson (197-84) answered with 13 points and 6 rebounds and guard Kengo Funabashi (189-93) added 15 points in the effort for Tokyo Big Blue. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Tokyo HT have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Loser Tokyo Big Blue still closes the standings with four games lost. Tokyo HT's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tokyo Tokyo Excel..
