MANILA, Philippines—Niigata and Kobe Paras lost to Mikawa anew, 77-75, in their inter-conference matchup in the 2021-22 Japan B.League season Saturday at Niigata Higashi General Sports Center.

The Albirex BB have now dropped fifth straight for a 2-6 record in the East Conference while the Seahorses improved to 6-2 in the West.


Paras drew things even at 75-all floating in for a jumper with 10 seconds left in the game but Davante Gardner answered with the winner putting in the hook shot with barely a second left.
