GAME 1 with Koshigaya, who is leading the B2

In the middle of the 1Q, #6 Otsuka aggressively attacked Fukuoka, and the offense began to turn around, and #43 Nagayoshi’s 3P shot extended the lead.

[Comment from HC Ramon Lopez Suarez]
It looks like there were two games, 40 minutes from 1Q to 4Q and overtime. I think we were able to win the match in 40 minutes, but I missed the free throw at an important point, and I failed to communicate that I would make a foul before the 3-point shot was hit, so I allowed the 3-point shot. . From there, we went into overtime, and many of our key players fouled out, so we weren’t able to maintain the same level of quality as we did from the 1st quarter to the 4th quarter. I am glad that I was able to play against Koshigaya, who has been playing great basketball throughout the season. Unfortunately, we lost, but I am proud of the players who put up a great fight, and I felt that this was a match that showed us a lot of potential of our players.
