Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Bottom-ranked Tokyo Big Blue (0-4) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their fourth consecutive match to fourth ranked Saitama Broncos (7-9) 99-72 on Sunday evening. Saitama Broncos outrebounded Tokyo Big Blue 52-39 including 22 on the offensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. American Darnell Martin (198-91, college: CS Dominguez H.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 17 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and his fellow American import center Joshua Crawford (211-88, college: Indiana St.) chipped in 20 points and 9 rebounds. At the losing side point guard Jey Yoshikawa (182-92) responded with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Saitama Broncos have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 7-9 record. Tokyo Big Blue at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. Saitama Broncos are looking forward to face Gifu Swoops (#6) at home in the next round. Tokyo Big Blue will play against Iwate Big Bulls (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Iwate was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Kagoshima (5-11) played at the court of 8th ranked Iwate Big Bulls (3-13). Kagoshima defeated Iwate Big Bulls 92-78. American center Antone Warren (208-93, college: Antelope Valley CC) nailed a double-double by scoring 28 points and 12 rebounds for the winning side and Kenta Tateyama accounted for 27 points and 5 assists. Kagoshima's coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Guard Yuta Kusano (185-97) came up with 21 points for Iwate Big Bulls in the defeat. Kagoshima have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They maintain fifth place with 5-11 record. Iwate Big Bulls lost eighth consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 13 games lost. Kagoshima will play against Aisin AW (#9) in Aichi in the next round. Iwate Big Bulls will play on the road against Tokyo Big Blue and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Aichi: Toyoda Gosei (#7) and Aisin AW (#9). Toyoda Gosei (3-1) won against visiting Aisin AW (1-3) 83-73. Patrick Simon fired a double-double by scoring 25 points and 16 rebounds for the winners. Toyoda Gosei's coach used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Yuki Ishihara produced 34 points (!!!) for lost side. Toyoda Gosei maintains seventh place with 3-1 record. Loser Aisin AW keeps the ninth position with three games lost. Toyoda Gosei will meet league's leader Koshigaya A. in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Aisin AW will play against Kagoshima (#5) in Renova and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 13 Gifu Swoops lost to Tokyo Excel. on the opponent's court 67-80.



Iwate Big Bulls - Kagoshima 78-92

The game in Iwate was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Kagoshima (5-11) played at the court of 8th ranked Iwate Big Bulls (3-13). Kagoshima defeated Iwate Big Bulls 92-78.
