    Indonesian-American winger Brandon Jawato finally made his debut for the Brex but went scoreless as he missed both of his shots in three minutes of action.

    Utsunomiya was hardly threatened in the game as Ibaraki failed to keep up and even stared at a 32-point deficit, 82-50, ater a Hirohide Araya layup with 4:49 remaining in the game.

    Chehales Tapscott paced the Robots (0-5) with 18 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals, Eric Jacobsen got 17 points, four boards, and two dimes, and Kohei Fukuzawa scored 10.

    Ibaraki is looking to bounce back as it meets Utsunomiya anew on Sunday.
