Tochigi Brex - Kawasaki BT 89-62

Tochigi Brex cruised past Kawasaki to sweep the series. Tochigi Brex dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Toshiba Thunders' 36. They outrebounded Toshiba Thunders 40-28 including 25 on the defensive glass. Tochigi Brex players were unselfish on offense dishing 26 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Toshiba Thunders' players. American forward Ryan Rossiter (204-89, college: Siena) had a double-double by scoring 20 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals to lead the charge for the winners and the other American import forward Jeffrey Gibbs (188-80, college: Otterbein) chipped in 16 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. Four Tochigi Brex players scored in double figures. International power forward Nick Fazekas (211-85, college: Nevada) responded with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds and American power forward Vernon Macklin (208-86, college: Florida) scored 13 points and 8 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.
Top scorers:
Tochigi Brex: R.Rossiter 20+10reb+4ast, J.Gibbs 16+7reb+4ast, M.Hiejima 14+2reb+4ast, Y.Endo 12+2reb+2ast, K.Takeuchi 9+11reb+1ast, S.Ikaruga 7+1reb+7ast

Ryukyu GK - Nagoya DD 77-53

Ryukyu bruised Nagoya to even the series at 1-1. Ryukyu GK made 16-of-17 free shots (94.1 percent) during the game. Ryukyu GK outrebounded Diamond Dolphins 41-20 including a 32-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. The former international swingman Takatoshi Furukawa (190-87) notched 26 points and 5 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and American forward Jeff Ayres (206-87, college: ASU) supported him with 15 points and 9 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Furukawa is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Even 15 points by American forward Justin Burrell (207-88, college: St.John's) did not help to save the game for Diamond Dolphins. His fellow American import center Hilton Armstrong (210-84, college: Connecticut) added 10 points for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
Top scorers:
Ryukyu GK: T.Furukawa 26+5reb, J.Ayres 15+9reb+3ast, K.Jones 11+9reb, N.Namizato 10+4reb+6ast, N.Tashiro 9+5reb+2ast, I.Brown 3+7reb+2ast
Nagoya DD: J.Burrell 15+4reb+1ast, H.Armstrong 10+4reb+3ast, T.Nakahigashi 10+5reb+1ast, S.Ando 10+1reb+4ast, T.Harimoto 4+1reb, R.Kobayashi 2+2ast

Niigata Albirex - Toyota Alvark 68-71

Toyota Alvark nipped Niigata to advance into the semifinal stage. Toyota Alvark dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Niigata Albirex's 34. Toyota Alvark looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. International Yudai Baba (193-95) orchestrated the victory by scoring 17 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. American center Alex Kirk (211-91, college: N.Mexico, agency: Pensack Sports) contributed with 13 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Four Toyota Alvark players scored in double figures. American Davante Gardner (203-91, college: Marquette) replied with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists and his fellow American import power forward Lamont Hamilton (208-84, college: St.John's) added 17 points and 10 rebounds in the effort for Niigata Albirex. Niigata Albirex's coach Kazuhiro Shoji rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help.
Top scorers:
Toyota Alvark: Y.Baba 17+6reb+6ast, M.Bjelica 14+3reb+1ast, A.Kirk 13+8reb+2ast, S.Ando 11+2reb+3ast, Z.Baranski 8+2reb+3ast, D.Tanaka 6+1reb+5ast

Toyama Grouses' coach Don Beck tested eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game.
Top scorers:
Chiba Jets: Y.Togashi 24+1reb+10ast, J.Duncan 17+12reb+2ast, A.Chambers 15+2reb+1ast, S.Taguchi 12+1reb+1ast, G.Edwards 10+9reb+6ast, M.Parker 9+1reb
