“It’s great to watch teams work hard on the court for their wins. It’s a bonus for the fans to watch teams double up on their efforts for a victory in overtime,” stated tournament coordinator Elsa Ulloa.

In the 30 plus competitive division it was a heated battle between the brother teams Tamuning Typhoons I (3-1) and Tamuning Typhoons II (1-2) that saw the score tied 72-72 at the end of game regulation. At the end of two minutes it was Typhoons I walking away with the win 79-77 in overtime.

Typhoons I big men Allan Chang and Larry Packard Jr. stepped things up in OT scoring in the paint and finishing at the free throw line for a combined seven points to seal the win.  A made three pointer by Typhoons II Joel Balbaestro and a jumper in the paint by Brian Hahn was not enough to tie the game for a second overtime.

Packard Jr. scored a game high 29 points followed by Balbaestro with 26 points.
