In the men’s division, Guam totally outmatched the Solomon Islands, leading 48-0 at halftime on their way to an 88-13 win.

The Solomons shot 5-for-43 from the field (12%) as they faced the traditionally-daunting Guam defense.

Point guard and former IIAAG MVP Kurtis Silva led the way with 18 points while team captain Jeddou Antonio added 14 points. Harvest star Kobe Sotelo pumped in 12 points and four steals.
