In the final home game of the season, the Varsity Boys’ Basketball team defeated rival Yokota, 67-60, to capture ASIJ’s third consecutive Varsity Boys’ Basketball Kanto Plain league title. The following week the Mustangs returned to the Far East Tournament as defending champions and by virtue of winning their final three games came away with the third place prize going 5-2 over four days. In “the game of the tournament” ASIJ fell to eventual champions Faith Academy (Philippines) in a close contest that saw the two teams combine for 25 successful three point shots.
This season the team was very busy! ASIJ also participated in the Hong Kong International School tournament in November and six games against Japanese high schools. The Mustangs overall final record was 20 – 11.
