89ers stretch winning streak to eight games

Date Posted: 2010-03-24

The Sendai 89ers are 25-12 on the season as they search for a playoff spot in the Basketball Japan League, pushing their win streak to eight games with a win over the Toyama Grouses.

Sendai’s Josh Peppers picked up 18 points as the team tallied 10 of 23 three-point shots. Kenichi Takahashi tallied 17 points in the game, including going 4-for-5 from the three-point zone. Brian Harper had the team-high 19 points for the grouses, who fall to 14-23 with the loss.

The Ryukyu Golden Kings had the weekend off as they sit atop the Western Conference standings. Okinawa holds a commanding two-game lead in the conference with a record of 26-14.

Elsewhere, The Shiga Lakestars picked up a 93-75 home court win over Rizing Fukuoka. Mikey Marshall was the big man for Shiga with 34 points, 12 rebounds and three steals. Gary Hamilton had 16 points, 20 rebounds and five assists. Shiga, now 22-19 and in fourth place in the Western Conference, played without services of starting center Ray Schaefer, who missed the game as his wife Sarah gave birth to twins—a boy and a girl—on Saturday.

Rizing Fukuoka is now 23-16, and sits in second place in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, the Oita HeatDevils squeezed out a 98-85 home court victory over the Takamatsu Five Arrows, led by Ricky Woods’ 42 points. The HeatDevils are now 19-22, while Rizing Fukuoka is on the low end of the standings with an 11-28 record.

The Osaka Evessa drubbed visiting Kyoto Hannaryz, 80-61 in weekend action. Evessa ran its record to 21-16 behind the shooting of David Palmer and Lynn Washington, who each scored 11 points. Washington was fresh back in the lineup after a three-game outing due to a leg injury. The Hannaryz are now 14-23.
