/ 9 March 2022

It has been a month since the Filipino import Ray Parks saw action for Nagoya as he played last January 29, and their break has been extended following that their scheduled weekend games against league No. 2 Chiba Jets were postponed.

After falling into the hands of the Utsunomiya Brex, 93-79, Nagoya is now at seventh place with its 21-9 record and will try to advance as the latter will face Thirdy Ravena and San-En this Wednesday.

Ravena recently returned to Japan after playing in the Manila qualifiers of the 2023 FIBA World Cup held on Feb. 24-28 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum but have yet to play in their teams’ matches over the weekend.

As Ravena and Co. have a fair share of rest, the team will also try to recover with their 5-30 standing.

Meanwhile, Dwight Ramos who returned to Japan in the same week with Ravena, also did not play for Toyoma Grouses over the weekend; still, the Toyoma bounced back as they completed the weekend with a 16-22 card after trouncing SunRockers Shibuya.

Other Filipino imports are also trying to advance with Kiefer Ravena and the Shiga Lakestars having a 10-21 card after losing to Kawasaki Brave Thunders (26-10) and Matthew Aquino and the Shinshu Brave Warriors who are at 18-19 standing.

Javi Gomez de Liano and the Ibaraki Robots are now at 8-28 record, while Kobe Paras and Niigata Albirex BB are at 5-31 standing after facing Alvark Tokyo (25-8) at City Hall Plaza Aore Nagaoka.
