MANILA, Philippines — Thirdy Ravena and the San-En NeoPhoenix continue to roll in the 2023-24 B.League season after routing the Shiinshu Brave Warriors, 95-75, on Wednesday at Toyohashi City Gymnasium.

Ravena delivered the goods with 17 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals as the playoff-bound NeoPhoenix, who rose to a 44-10 record, celebrated their Central Conference championship in their first home game since clinching the division title.

Shinshu dropped to a 7-47 card with RJ Abarrientos hardly making his presence felt with one assist.

Meanwhile, Dwight Ramos is out indefinitely due to an orbital floor fracture according to Levanga Hokkaido after ending the 21-game winning streak of the Utsonomiya Brex last Saturday.

Ramos has already missed back-to-back games including Hokkaido’s latest 98-90 win over Gunma Crane Thunders on Wednesday.

Kai Sotto’s impressive double-double went for naught as the Yokohama B-Corsairs absorbed a 77-55 loss to Seahorses Mikawa.

Wright poured in 17 points, four rebounds, and four assists but  Kyoto Hannaryz fell to Shimane Susanoo Magic, 92-80, dropping to a 15-39 card.
