MANILA, Philippines—Hokkaido stunned Niigata and Kobe Paras for its first win, 88-75, in the East Conference of the Japan B.League season Saturday at Hokkai Kitayell.

The Levanga snapped their disappointing four-game losing streak at the start of the season to improve to 1-4 while Paras and the Albirex BB dropped to 2-3.

Hokkaido was relentless in the opening quarter as it outscored the Albirex BB 31-10 and that was all the Levanga wrote as they rode that outburst throughout the contest.

Hashimoto Ryoma finished with a game-high 20 points for Hokkaido while five of his teammates also finished in double figures.
