Nagoya used a strong second half to dump Kyoto 91-58 in the Japan B.League on Saturday at the latter's turf at Kyoto City Gymnasium.

Bobby Ray Parks had 5 points and 3 steals for the Diamond Dolphins, who now hold a 10-7 record.

Meanwhile, at Aoyama Gakuin Memorial Hall, Kobe Paras was held to just 3 points and 3 rebounds as Niigata lost to Shibuya, 79-70. 

The Sunrockers were able to fend off the Albirex's fourth quarter fight-back as Kosuke Ishii fired 7 of his 12 points in the last five minutes.

Niigata came back into the game by clawing back from an 18-point deficit and fought within 64-62 with 5:23 to go.

But Ishii orchestrated a 12-4 run to save Shibuya.
