YOKOHAMA ― Yuki Kawamura turned 21 years old in May. A month earlier, he strung together a six-game stretch in which he reached double digits in assists every game.
To do so at such a young age boldly underscores his playmaking skills and his potential to be one of Japan's great point guards for years to come.
This season, Kawamura, one of the B.League's rising stars, has cobbled together a similar streak through Sunday, October 16.
Over the past five games, the Yamaguchi Prefecture native has handed out 13, 12, 11, 12 and 12 assists. He leads the B.League in assists (11.2 per game).
