Fazekas Leads Toshiba To JPL Finals

Former University of Nevada All-American Nick Fazekas has led the Toshiba Brave Thunders to the finals of the Japanese Basketball League.  The championship series with the Aisin Sea Horses begins on Wednesday.

Fazekas scored 23 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in game-three as the Brave Thunders defeated the defending JBL champion Toyota Motors Alvark 64-62 to advance to the finals for the first time since 2004-05.  A year ago the team went 8-34 but the Pack forward has helped the team reach the finals this season.

In 43 games this year Fazekas averaged 21.5 points and 12.3 rebounds per game for Toshiba.  He shot 56.9 percent from the field and 35.1 from behind the arc.
