DWIGHT Ramos and the Toyama Grouses split their two-game homestand against Akita with a tough 80-64 loss in the Japan B.League amid a series of postponements due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) health and safety protocols.
Mr. Ramos played limited action following a hard fall in the second period and finished with six points after sizzling for 22 markers in their 99-91 win on Saturday at the Toyama City Gymnasium.
Mr. Ramos suited up for only eight minutes and did not return to the game as the Grouses slid to 10-18 card behind Brice Johnson’s 17 points and 12 rebounds. Akita improved to 18-10.
Toyama will have a long break before plunging back to action against Mikawa on Jan. 22.
The B.League on Friday suspended multiple matches featuring the squads of other Filipino imports in Ray Parks, Jr. (Nagoya), Kobe Paras (Niigata), Javi Gomez de Liaño (Ibaraki), Matthew Aquino (Shinshu), Kiefer (Shiga) and Thirdy Ravena (San-en).
Prior to that, the Japanese league had also scrapped the All-Star Game scheduled in Okinawa this week.
The B.League said several players participating in the All-Star and in the regular season games are under protocols after either testing positive for COVID-19 or being close contacts. — John Bryan Ulanday
