MANILA, Philippines—Dwight Ramos helped Levanga Hokkaido reach the next round of the Japan B. League’s Emperor Cup as they trashed Altiri Chiba, 96-68, at Windhill Kushiro Super Arena on Sunday.
Ramos finished with nine points, two rebounds, an assist and a steal on the defensive end.
His Filipino counterpart Kobe Paras had seven points for Chiba, which bowed out of the tournament.
The Nagoya Diamond Dolphins and the San-En NeoPhoenix also advanced.
Nagoya moved on after clipping Justin Baltazar and the Hiroshima Dragonflies, 89-85, despite Ray Parks not seeing action for the Diamond Dolphins.
Thirdy Ravena, meanwhile, only played two minutes in San-En’s 84-53 rout of the SunRockers Shibuya at Hayamizu Park Sports Center.
Greg Slaughter, like Parks and Baltazar, did not play in the Rising Zephyr Fukuoka’s loss to the Ibaraki Robots, 74-62, at White Ring Arena.
