MANILA, Philippines — Dwight Ramos returned to Levanga Hokkaido on Saturday after a long layoff due to an ankle injury in the Japan B League.

Ramos, however, was still far from his usual form in his first game in two months as Hokkaido was eliminated by the Yokohama B Corsairs, 98-82, at the Hokkaido Keito Gymnasium.

Returning to form after missing 20 games, Ramos had just two points on 1-of-8 shooting from the field and two rebounds in 17 minutes of play. Sean Long led Hokkaido, who fell to 7-24 with 25 points.

Bobby Ray Parks Jr. and Nagoya, meanwhile, defeated the Ibaraki Robots, 90-71, at the KAmisu Disaster Prevention Arena.

Parks had seven points, four rebounds and two assists as the Diamond Dolphins, one of the league’s top teams, went 23-8 for fifth place alone.

Matthew Wright and Kyoto Hanarez also lost to the Gunma Crane Thunders 88-81 at Kyoto City Gymnasium.

Wright recorded 25 points made on five triples on top of four assists, but his efforts still weren’t enough as Kyoto fell to 11-19.

Trey Jones had 22 points, seven boards and five assists for Gunma.

Kiefer Ravenna’s Shiga Lakes met a similar fate at the Shiga Daihatsu Arena.

Ravena recorded 11 points and three assists for Shiga, which dropped to 5-27.

Third Rowena lost to Rockers Shibuya 103-93 at National Yoyogi Stadium.

Thirdy was limited to five points and five assists while Kyle O’Quinn had a double-double with 26 points and 15 rebounds in the losing effort.

In B2 action, Jordan Heading and Nagasaki Velca outlasted Bambitius Nara, 101-94, at Nara Prefecture Gymnasium. Heading scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting from the field.

Kobe Paras and Alteri Chiba (25-7), however, lost a close game to the Ehime Orange Vikings, 79-76, at Awami Shirasato Arena. The Paras were struggling with just six points after missing six of their eight shot attempts.
