The IIAAG boys basketball season kicked off on January 17th with a rematch of last year’s championship game between Okkodo and St. John’s. The Bulldogs prevailed over the Knights. Simon Sanchez pulled off a big upset over north rival Okkodo 47-45 last Friday night.

The following Saturday night, JFK blew out Sanchez 71-41. The game of the season so far was the Okkodo win over the JFK Islanders and Guam High’s 65-57 double overtime win over FD on Saturday.
