The Yokohama B-Corsairs successfully survived the humiliating prospect of demotion to the second division in the B. League’s inaugural season with a 74-53 victory over the Hiroshima Dragonflies in the promotion/demotion game at Yoyogi National Gymnasium on Sunday afternoon.

Center Jason Washburn gave a dominant performance in the paint and posted a game-high 27 points and 13 rebounds to lead the B-Corsairs, who were forced to play in the decider after they fell 79-71 to the Toyama Grouses in a first-division survival playoff on May 19 in Tokyo.
