After 10 rounds played we can already see who rules in the B League D3 and who belongs to weaker ones. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Toyoda Gosei (2-1) on the court of third ranked Tokyo Cinq R. on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by Tokyo Cinq R. 77-66. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Toyoda Gosei. They outrebounded Toyoda Gosei 48-24 including a 36-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. American forward Deangelo Kirkland (203-89, college: Columbus St., agency: Interperformances) had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 14 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Senegalese Bira Seck (204-90, college: Idaho, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 18 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side American Patrick Simon (203-92, college: Seattle Pacific) responded with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 10 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tokyo Cinq R. maintains third position with 9-6 record having five points less than leader Koshigaya A. Toyoda Gosei at the other side dropped to the seventh place with one game lost. Tokyo Cinq R. are again looking forward to face Toyoda Gosei (#7) in Aichi in the next round.

B League D3 top team - Koshigaya A. (14-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed tenth ranked Tokyo Big Blue (0-3) 96-75. American Josh Peppers (201-85, college: Cent.Florida) notched 22 points and 6 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws) to lead the effort and Luke Evans supported him with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Even 21 points and 9 rebounds by forward Bryan Simpson (197-84) did not help to save the game 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. Koshigaya A. have an impressive 13-game winning streak.
