Chris Ayers was the man-of-the-hour Saturday with 27 points, and Jeff Newton pumped in 24 on Sunday as the Ryukyu Golden Kings swept a pair from the Rizing Fukuoka, 94-69 and 72-68.

Ayers, the Okinawa center, also hauled in 15 rebounds as the Golden Kings made easy work of Fukuoka. Anthony McHenry and Jeff Newton tallied 11 points each. McHenry was instrumental again on Sunday, dumping in 17 points while gathering in 14 rebounds, while Yosuke Sugawara scored 10 points as the western division leading Golden Kings pressed the record to 35-11.
