MANILA, Philippines—Niigata and Kobe Paras struck a dozen straight losses after they fell to Akita, 79-62, in their East Conference meeting of the 2021-22 Japan B.League season Saturday at their home floor of City Hall Plaza Aore Nagaoka.

The Albirex BB stumbled to a miserable 2-13 slate to tie Ibaraki at the bottom of the conference while the Northern Happinets claimed the sixth seed with an 8-7 record.

Colton Iverson finished with 21 points, seven rebounds, and three assists to lead Akita while Glynn added 18 points, five rebounds, three assists, and four steals.
