    RYO Terashima got the friendliest of friendly bounces as he nailed the game-winning triple for the Hiroshima Dragonflies in overtime, knocking off Niigata Albirex BB, 105-102, from the 97th Emperor's Cup on Sunday at Kishiwada City Gymnasium.

    It was the biggest of Terashima's four triples as he went perfect from rainbow country to register 18 points and six assists.

    The Terashima three spoiled the late-game heroics of Kobe Paras, who grabbed his own miss and scored on a putback with 3.1 seconds left in extra time to tie the game at 102.

    Paras actually had a shot to win the game for Niigata in regulation, but he could only muster a split from the line to tie the game at 89 with 39.9 seconds left.

    Greg Echenique, however, also missed his free throws on the other end for the Dragonflies, opening one last shot for the Albirex but Hiryu Okamoto flubbed his jumper as time expired.
