Lynn Washington Osakaユs Ace ヤplayer of the hourユ

Date Posted: 2009-05-07

It all came down to the hot hands of power forward Lynn Washington, the man who led the Osaka Evessa to a second round playoff opportunity in a mini-overtime.
Osaka and the Takamatsu Five Arrows split a two-game series Saturday and Sunday, plunging the right to advance to a ten-minute mini-game. Washington was far and away the star, pouring in 16 points and hauling down seven rebounds to spur his Evessa to a 31-17 win. Osaka, the three-time defending league champions, advances to the second round match-up to the Western Conference finals in Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, where theyユll face the winner of the Ryukyu Golden Kings ミ Rizing Fukuoka semi-finals.
With two starters out of the lineup Saturday, Osaka relied on the bench for help, and they delivered. Shota Konno and Jun Nakanishi proved up to the task, with Konno scoring a season-high 19, while his teammate tallied 18 in an 88-81 home court win over the Five Arrows at Moriguchi City Gymnasium in Osaka Prefecture.
Takamatsu Five Arrows refused to bow to Osaka Sunday, trouncing the three-time champions 88-64 to force the mini-game.
