The team’s former management submitted a notice of withdrawal to the league due to severe financial woes last Wednesday, and Wakayama’s continuation in the men’s hoop circuit was considered to be in jeopardy. In fact, it was believed until the news conference that it would be difficult for the team to continue playing this season.
