The Sendai 89ers-Niigata Albirex BB game on Friday was canceled due to the 7.3 magnitude earthquake (at 5:18 p.m.) and, the tsunami that followed in Tohoku.

Sendai issued an announcement around 6:30 p.m., about 40 minutes before the scheduled tipoff of its bj-league series rematch against the visiting Albirex.
