Despite last Friday's abrupt end to the B. League season, the campaign gave fans a number of memorable feats since its opening weekend last October.

What’s more, there isn’t a 2019-20 B. League champion. Instead, there are three division champs based on their final win-loss records before league chairman Masaaki Okawa announced the season was done due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This adds an interesting element to next season’s storyline. Technically, the Alvark Tokyo, back-to-back title winners over the past two years, will still be defending champions – though I think it’s fair to suggest that all teams will enter the upcoming season with a fresh outlook and a clean slate.
