    EUGENE Phelps led Ehime Orange Vikings to an 84-57 rout of Earthfriends Tokyo Z in the 2021-22 B.League second division on Saturday at Ota City General Gymnasium.

    The former Phoenix import exploded for 31 points, 19 rebounds, and two assists to make up for his subpar showing in the first of the two-game roadtrip.

    Phelps' eruption was key in Ehime's 20-9 third quarter pullaway where it turned a close 37-33 affair to a commanding 55-37 lead with 43 seconds left in the frame thanks to an 18-4 blast.

    Andrew Fitzgerald was also a huge spark for the Orange Vikings with 26 points, six boards, and three assists, as Ryan Kriener scored all of his nine points from beyond the arc, to go with four rebounds and two assists.
