    Rizing Zephyr claim B2 title - May 20, 2018


    In Akita, Fukuoka's rise in the B. League hierarchical structure is complete. The Rizing Zephyr claimed the B2 title, bragging rights and promotion to B1 a year after making the jump from B3 to B2. Coach Ryuji Kawai's club triumphed in a must-win Game 2 to force the mini-game tiebreaker, then spoiled Akita's fairy-tale season with another victory. Fukuoka had ended Akita's 22-game win streak on April 1. On Sunday, they gave the hosts a run for their money and came out on top twice. In Game 2, veteran star Josh Peppers (201-F-85, college: Cent.Florida) scored 19 points, Eric Jacobsen (208-PF-94, college: Arizona St.) had 17, Daisuke Kobayashi (188-G-87) poured in 15 and Faye Pape Mour chipped in with 14 points and rebounds for the Rizing Zephyr (51-14 overall). The visitors sank 22 of 28 foul shots. For Akita (57-8), Keisuke Takabatake (183-G-90) had 13 points on 5-for-5 shooting. Kadeem Coleby (206-C/F-89, college: Wichita St.) scored 12 and Nigel Spikes (208-C-89, college: Marshall) 11. The hosts made 38 percent of their shots from the floor. They were 7 of 14 at the foul line. In Game 3, Peppers and Jacobsen each had four points and Kobayashi handed out two assists for Fukuoka. Akita led 7-6 after the first 5-minute half in the mini-game.
