Kodama drained the game-winning trey with 1.3 seconds to spare and left Michael Craig without much time to respond as Kagawa swept the two-game series.
It capped off a wild sequence for the Five Arrows, which needed big baskets from Terrance Woodbury and Angus Brandt to tie the game twice in the final 1:07.
Hiroki Usui had a chance to win the game for Aomori, but his shot went off and led to Kodama’s heroics in the waning seconds.
Woodbury led Kagawa (6-2) with 24 points, six assists, four rebounds, and two steals, while Brandt also got 24 points, nine boards, and three assists.
