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.

The Panthers are off to 5-0 start. Aguon scored 18, 34, 19 points in wins over Notre Dame, Southern, and George Washington. The senior is leading the Panthers to improve on their past two seasons and contend for a championship.

Jeddou Antonio – Okkodo

The Bulldogs record stands at 5-1. Returnee Jeddou Antonio has led the Bulldogs with his steady play. His best performance came against St. Paul. Antonio had 26 points and 12 rebounds. The Bulldogs will rely on his leadership in trying to repeat as champions this season.
