Date Posted: 2009-11-11

George Leach, Jeff Newton, Taketo Aoki, Anthony McHenry and Shigeyuki Kinjo ganged up on the Takamatsu Five Arrows for a pair of surprisingly simple victories on the road.

Okinawa began the basketball weekend early, whipping the Five Arrows 89-68 Friday with Newton and Aoki each scoring 13 points, while Leach added 12. Newton also hauled in 16 rebounds, George Leach grabbed 13 and McHenry pulled down 10.

Saturday was no different as the Golden Kings ran their record to 6-2 with George Leach tallying 20 points and a game-high 22 rebounds in a 77-69 contest. Leach’s former Indiana University teammate, Jeff Newton, added 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Shigeyuki Kinjo added 17 points.

Elsewhere in the Basketball Japan League Friday, Rizing Fukuoka scored a home court overtime victory over the Shiga Lakestars, 80-76.

The Saitama Broncos swept a pair from the Niigata Albirex BB over the weekend, winning an 82-81 squeaker Saturday, then having a slightly easier 73-69 time winning on Sunday. The Broncos are now 3-7 on the year, while the Albirex fall to 2-6, with four of those losses by four points or less.

The Sendai 89ers continued to find ‘There’s no place like home’ as they kept their unbeaten home string alive with a pair of home court victories over the Tokyo Apache. The 89ers won 88-76 in the first contest, with Chris Holm pacing Sendai with 13 points and 17 rebounds. Sunday’s matchup was no walk in the park as Tokyo kept the pressure on right to the very end. Sendai finally put the game away, 91-85, for a sixth home victory as they improved to 8-2 on the season. The Apache are now 4-6.

The Oita HeatDevils and Osaka Evessa worked the weekend into a series split, with Lynn Washington pouring in 21 points to lead Osaka to an 83-69 road win Saturday. The HeatDevils bounced back Sunday, picking up an 81-78 win as they ran their record to 3-5 on the year. The win-lose weekend left Osaka with a 4-4 season record.
