    EARTHFRIENDS Tokyo Z continued their winless start in the 2021-22 B.League second division, stumbling to their 12th straight defeat after a 91-80 loss to the Koshigaya Alphas Saturday at Wing Hat Kasukabe.

    Tomoya Hasegawa buried killer treys in the payoff period to ignite the hosts' 16-2 run to turn the game from a 70-all deadlock to an 86-72 advantage with 4:03 left to play and frustrate their lackluster visitors.

    Hasegawa shot 4-of-7 from downtown for his 14 points, five assists, and two rebounds as Koshigaya sustained its hot streak with this ninth straight win to improve to a 9-3 card.

    Isaac Butts was just as feisty down low with his 25 points on a perfect 12-of-12 clip from the field, to go with his 15 boards and three assists, as Craig Brackins also had his double-double of 13 points, 12 rebounds, and six assists.

    Jonathan Octeus also scored 11 off the bench to keep the Alphas in step of the leaders in the second division.
