    SAN-EN NeoPhoenix flamed out in the second half, losing grip of an 18-point lead to kneel to SunRockers Shibuya, 70-64, in the 2021-22 B.League season Saturday at Aoyama Gakuin Memorial Hall.

    James Michael McAdoo put on a show in the fourth quarter, scoring nine of his 31 points as he willed the hosts back from a 41-23 third quarter deficit. He also grabbed 14 rebounds and five steals to make up for his seven turnovers.

    Josh Harrellson also tallied a double-double of 13 points and 11 boards to help Shibuya win back-to-back games and rise to 7-3.

    The two imports conspired in the telling 24-6 third quarter barrage that allowed it to knot the game at 47 and set up the frantic finish.

      It was another frigid night for Ravena, who only shot 2-of-8 from deep and missed all three of his three-pointers to settle for just four points, three rebounds, an assist, and a steal against four turnovers.

      The NeoPhoenix sunk to 3-7, but will have a chance to redeem themselves in the second of this two-game series on Sunday.
