MANILA, Philippines—Kai Sotto did a bit of everything in Hiroshima’s 80-71 win over Shimane Susanoo Magic in the Japan B.League on Saturday at Hiroshima Sun Plaza.

Sotto collected eight points on 50 percent shooting from the field, six rebounds, three assists and a block for the Dragonflies.

Hiroshima (37-12) extended its winning streak to six games and snapped Shimane’s 18-game run.


Dwight Ramos was also victorious after propeling Levanga Hokkaido past Gunma Crane Thunders, 97-88, win against the Gunma Crane Thunders at Hokkai Kitaeru.

Ramos finished with 14 points, three rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Ravena brothers Kiefer and Thirdy, meanwhile, had contrasting results.


Kiefer helped the Shiga Lakes stop a two-game slide after a 76-65 win over Fighting Eagles Nagoya, 76-65, at Aichi Prefecture. He came away with eight points, five rebounds, six assists and two steals.

Thirdy and the San-En Neophoenix, on the other hand, fell to the Shinsu Brave Warriors, 68-63, at Shizuoka Prefecture.


The younger Ravena also scored eight points that went with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and a block.

Matthew Wright’s 21-point effort was put to waste after the Kyoto Hannaryz took an 83-77 setback at the hands of the Ryukyu Golden Kings.

Carl Tamayo was barely a factor in the Ryukyu win, playing just four minutes and registering three points.
