    DWIGHT Ramos missed a desperation three as the Toyama Grouses suffered a 12-point collapse to fall anew to the Ryukyu Golden Kings, 83-80, on Sunday in the Japan B.League at Toyama Seibu Sports Center.

    It was a bitter defeat for the home team which led, 67-55, with 9:21 remaining as Ryuichi Kishimoto and Naoki Tashiro willed the visitors back in the game with a 20-6 run to grab a 77-73 Ryukyu lead in the last 2:23.

    Ramos kept the Grouses within striking distance, and had a chance when Jack Cooley split his shots from the charity stripe with 10.9 ticks left. But Toshiki Kamisawa and Ramos could not convert on their potential game-tying long bombs.

    The loss kept Toyama the only winless team in the first division as it drops to a 0-8 card.

    Ramos had 12 points and six rebounds as the Grouses remain at the cellar.
