MANILA, Philippines—Shiga took its latest setback at the hands of SR Shibuya, 95-82, in the Japan B.League on Monday at Aoyama Gakuin Memorial Hall.

Eager to get back on the winning track, the Lakestars appeared poised to end their slide after heading into halftime with a 48-44 edge.

But Shiga failed to sustain their form in the second half as the Sun Rockers outscored the Lakestars, 30-16, to take control of the game in the third quarter.

Shibuya swept its two-game series with Shiga, which got waylaid, 102-75, on Sunday.
