    THIRDY Ravena and San-En NeoPhoenix suffered their eighth straight defeat, 90-83, at the hands of the Shinshu Brave Warriors in the 2022-23 Japan B.League season on Wednesday at Toyohashi City Gymnasium.

    Ravena made only one of his nine shots to finish with six points, seven rebounds, six assists, and one steal as the home team dropped to an 8-11 record.

    San-En started the season 8-3 yet but has never been the same since an injury sidelined former league MVP Kosuke Kanamaru for the past 10 games.

    Isaiah Hicks led the NeoPhoenix with 26 points, 10 boards, and three assists, as Ryusei Sasaki got 20 points and seven assists.

    Injuries also continued to haunt Pinoy imports in Japan with Matthew Wright and Bobby Ray Parks among the latest to be sidelined.

    Wright suffered an ankle sprain in Kyoto Hannaryz' 81-65 defeat to Ryukyu Golden Kings at Okinawa Arena.



      The Fil-Canadian shooter only played the first 1:17 of the game for Kyoto and he watched his side drop their fourth straight loss to sink to 7-12.

      Parks, meanwhile, sat out Nagoya Diamond Dolphins' 80-79 loss to Hiroshima Dragonflies at Hiroshima Sun Plaza due to a concussion suffered in their team's last game over the weekend.

      He no longer made the trip as Nagoya saw its four-game win streak come to an end to fall to 14-5.

      Justine Baltazar, on the other hand, was benched by Hiroshima as it claimed its third straight victory to climb up to 15-4.

      Dwight Ramos (ankle) and Kiefer Ravena (leg) continued to miss games for their respective teams.

      Ramos' Levanga Hokkaido took a 99-83 loss to Gunma Crane Thunders at Ota City Sports Park Citizen Gymnasium to fall to a 5-14 slate after this third straight defeat.

      Ravena's Shiga Lakes also absorbed a 68-59 nipping to Fighting Eagles Nagoya at Shiga Daihatsu Arena to lose back-to-back games and slump to 4-15.
