The teams of Kiefer Ravena and Kobe Paras couldn’t snap their losing streaks anew after suffering defeats in Japan’s B.League this weekend.

Niigata fell 79-62 in the first match the previous day before dropping an 89-58 decision.
Shiga lost for the seventh straight time to fall 6-9 while Niigata dropped to 2-14 after a 13th consecutive defeat.
Ravena struggled for Shiga with just four points on 1-of-8 shooting with three assists and two steals in 15 minutes.
The Lakestars meet the Sun Rockers anew on Monday.
Paras scored only five points on 1-of-7 from the field in the second match for Niigata.
Dwight Ramos was also on the losing end as the Toyama Grouses were defeated by the Ryukyu Golden Kings, 80-69.
Ramos had 14 points, four rebounds and two assists for the Grouses, who got swept by the Golden Kings in their two-game set for a 4-12 record.
The San-En Neophoenix fell to 3-13 after losing twice to the Mikawa Sea Horses minus Thirdy Ravena, who served a two-game suspension for smashing a signboard after a loss last month.
