    DWIGHT Ramos and the Toyama Grouses seek to advance in the 97th Emperor's Cup on Wednesday, as they face the Kawasaki Brave Thunders in the fourth round at Kawasaki City Todoroki Arena.

    With Ramos, Julian Mavunga, Joshua Smith, and Brice Johnson, as well as locals Keijuro Matsui and Naoki Uto, Toyama reached the third round of the All-Japan Basketball Championship by beating the Aomori Wat's, 105-71; the Shimane Susanoo Magic, 81-77; and the Ibaraki Robots, 94-87.

    Toyama has a tough match against a Kawasaki squad relying on naturalized center Nick Fazekas and Akatsuki Five staples Ryusei Shinoyama and Yuma Fujii.

    The winner of the duel will advance to the quarterfinals set on Jan. 5 next year against the winner of the clash between Alvark Tokyo and Osaka Evessa.
