Parks Jr. shines anew; Nagoya repeats win over Toyama

Asia's Tech News Daily

RAY Parks Jr. played splendidly once more as the Nagoya Diamond Dolphins scored 99-74 to repeat an emphatic win over the Toyama Grouses team of fellow Filipino import Dwight Ramos at the Toyama City Gymnasium on Sunday.

After his 15-point performance on Saturday that resulted in a 94-68 win over Toyama, Parks dropped a game-high 17 points this time around and added seven rebounds, four steals and two assists to lead Nagoya D to a 3-3 win-loss card.

“I appreciate coach Shaun for allowing me to play and my teammates for trusting me and believing in me. We got the job done today, and hopefully, we can continue to grow and build,” the 28-year-old Parks said during the post-game interview.

Leading by just five points, 45-40, the Diamond Dolphins pulled away with a 22-6 run to seize a 67-46 lead at the 2:54 mark of the third quarter. Nagoya D grew the advantage to its biggest at 30 points, 95-65, with 3:08 left in the game.


However, the 6-foot-4 Parks wasn’t the only one on the rampage. Scott Eatherton registered 15 points, seven rebounds and two assists. Coty Clarke unloaded 14 markers, six boards, four dimes and three steals. Takumi Saito came through with 12 points and eight assists while as Tenketsu Harimoto put up 11 points.

Meanwhile, Ramos cashed in nine points, four rebounds and three assists in his first start for the Grouses, which fell to a 0-6 slate.

Former TNT Tropang Giga import Joshua Smith led Toyama with 13 points and six rebounds. Julian Mavunga backstopped him with 11 points, seven assists and four boards.

Another victorious Pinoy import today was Kiefer Ravena, who put up six points, four rebounds and three assists. Though Ravena’s numbers were not eye-popping, his team, the Shiga Lakestars, still blew out the Kyoto Hannaryz, 95-72, to a 5-1 slate, which was good enough to share the top spot in the West district.

Kiefer’s brother, Thirdy, as well as other Filipino imports, Kobe Paras and Juan Gomez de Liaño, also saw action today, but they ended up losing their respective games.

Thirdy and the San-en NeoPhoenix bowed to the Hiroshima Dragonflies, 72-84, for the second time in a row. Thirdy poured 12 points, two rebounds and two steals as San-en fell to a 2-4 slate.

Paras fired 18 points, three rebounds and three assists, but it wasn’t enough for his team, the Niigata Albirex BB to win. Niigita succumbed to Levanga Hokkaido for the second time in a row, 69-72. NeoPhoenix dropped to a 2-4 record.

De Liaño’s team, the Earthfriends Tokyo Z, has now lost five times in as many games as there were in the Division 2 action. Tokyo Z fell to the Sendai 89ers, 61-84. Starting for the first time, de Liaño scored one point, four rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes of play.
