The teams of Kiefer Ravena and Kobe Paras couldn’t snap their losing streaks anew after suffering defeats in Japan’s B.League this weekend.

The Lakestars meet the Sun Rockers anew on Monday.

Dwight Ramos was also on the losing end as the Toyama Grouses were defeated by the Ryukyu Golden Kings, 80-69.
