There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in B2 League. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Gunma (42-16) at the home court on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by second ranked Sendai 89ers (38-20) 97-86. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Gunma. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. Sendai 89ers made 22-of-25 free shots (88.0 percent) during the game. Sendai 89ers outrebounded Gunma 32-20 including 23 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Jerome Tillman (201-87, college: Ohio, agency: Inception Sports) who helped to win the game recording 32 points and 9 rebounds. The other American import center Daniel Miller (211-91, college: Georgia Tech) contributed with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. American forward Thomas Kennedy (201-87, college: Detroit Mercy) replied with 29 points and 5 rebounds for Gunma. Gunma's coach Fujitaka Hiraoka rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sendai 89ers maintains second position with 38-20 record having four points less than leader Shinshu BW. Gunma at the other side still keeps top place with 16 games lost. They share the position with Shimane SM. Sendai 89ers are looking forward to face Aomori Watts (#6) at home in the next round.
