Atsushi
Nogami
There were just 9 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. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of Aisin AW (1-1) in Aichi on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Tokyo Cinq R. (8-6) 87-72. They made 19-of-25 free shots (76.0 percent) during the game. Tokyo Cinq R. shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 60.9 percentage. It was a good game for Atsushi Nogami (184-86) who led his team to a victory with 14 points and 9 rebounds. American forward Deangelo Kirkland (203-89, college: Columbus St., agency: Interperformances) contributed with 18 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American forward Kevin Kotzur (203-89, college: St.Mary's, TX) answered with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 13 rebounds for Aisin AW. Aisin AW's coach rotated ten players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tokyo Cinq R. maintains third place with 8-6 record having five points less than leader Koshigaya A. Aisin AW at the other side dropped to the ninth position with one game lost. Tokyo Cinq R. are looking forward to face Toyoda Gosei (#8) in Aichi in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Aisin AW will play at home against the league's second-placed Tokyo Excel. and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
An interesting game for Koshigaya A. (13-1) which played road game in Saitama against 4th placed Saitama Broncos (5-9). Second ranked Koshigaya A. had an easy win 94-71. American players dominated the game. Kyle Richardson (201-91, college: Portland St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 41 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds (on 18-of-22 shooting from the field) for the winners and Josh Peppers chipped in 12 points and 5 assists. The best for the losing side was center Joshua Crawford (211-88, college: Indiana St.) with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 10 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Koshigaya A. have an impressive series of twelve victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Tokyo Excel. Saitama Broncos lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourth place with nine games lost. Koshigaya A.'s supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tokyo Tokyo Big Blue.
Bottom-ranked Tokyo Big Blue is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their second consecutive match to seventh ranked Kagoshima (3-11) 92-87 on Sunday evening. Antone Warren nailed a double-double by scoring 21 points, 18 rebounds and 9 blocks for the winning side. Andre Murray came up with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds for Tokyo Big Blue in the defeat. Tokyo Big Blue's coach tested ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Kagoshima moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Iwate Big Bulls. Loser Tokyo Big Blue still closes the standings with two games lost. Kagoshima will meet higher ranked Gifu Swoops (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Tokyo Big Blue's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tokyo to the arena Koshigaya A..
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Gifu Swoops (4-10) and Toyoda Gosei (2-0), which took place in Aichi. Higher ranked Gifu Swoops lost to leader Toyoda Gosei in a road game 68-84. The best player for the winners was Brian Voelkel who scored 6 points, 20 rebounds and 14 assists. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Toyoda Gosei moved-up to eighth place. Gifu Swoops lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted team keep the fifth position with ten games lost. Toyoda Gosei's next round opponent will be higher ranked Tokyo Cinq R. (#3) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Gifu Swoops will play against Kagoshima and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
