In another weekend of the 2012 Summer Jam basketball tournament, the Inarajan Hawks defeated the Sixers 67-50 Sunday afternoon at the Tamuning gym.

Though the Hawks’ Cory Lorenzo showed up late to their game, the point guard was still able to rack up 18 points to lead his team to victory.

The Hawks were off to a rough start as the lead seesawed between the two teams. The first half saw the Sixers take an early 11-6 lead after Adam Lloyd contributed back-to-back baskets and another short jumper a few minutes later. Subsequently, making a difference from the get-go, Lorenzo jumped in immediately, picking up a foul and nailing his free throws to tie the game at 13 apiece. In the ensuing play Lorenzo recorded a three to take the 16-13 lead for the first time of the match.

The Sixers answered back going on a 10-0 run to take the lead once again. Enough was enough for Lorenzo as he recorded back-to-back-to-back layups to tie the game at 31-all and take the 33-29 lead at the half.

The Hawks dominated the second half, keeping their lead the entire way. The Sixers tried to rally back behind Stefan Whitehurst’s three three-pointers and the stealthy hands of Lloyd, however their efforts were diminished as the Hawks went on to outscore the Sixers 34-21 in the last half. With a little over three minutes left in the game, the Hawks stopped any attempts at the basket and went on a 12-0 run to end on their night on a high note.

In the losing effort, Whitehurst led all scorers with 19 points, while Lorenzo’s 18 was the next highest. Lorenzo ranks third as a top-scorer in the league, recording 82 points in six games. With the win the Hawks improve to 5-1 while the Sixers drop to 2-4.
