ACS 72, Skyy Vodka 35

The ACS Investors took full control of Sunday night’s game getting everyone involved, thus getting themselves the 72‐35 win over Skyy Vodka here in the Yigo gymnasium.

From the beginning of the game you can tell the Investors were not going to take this team lightly. After winning the jump ball, they weren’t going to waste any time trying to get the lead so they gave the ball down low to Reed Mayer for the first basket in the game. . From there ASC bombarded Skyy Vodka with perimeter and three point shooting giving them a 13­‐0 run in the first 6 minutes of the game.

Skyy Vodka was hesitating, trying to get some momentum going to stop the bleeding, but eventually, Carlito Edvada gets to the free throw line and sinks two of his free for the first point for his team.

But before heading to the end of the half, with ASC committing back-­‐to-­‐back turnovers, Skyy Vodka took advantag giving them the 7-­‐2 run with a long three pointer from David Santos and short jumper from Carlito.

Different from the first half, ASC Investors became more aggressive on defense with double teaming and giving them the open breaks. Learning from the mistakes they made in the first half, ASC took the game up a notch by collectively scoring 58 points in the 2nd half.

Reed Mayer got the crowd on its feet and putting them in awe as he took flight to throw down the tomahawk. Despite getting the technical, ASC were going to let one call put them down. They continued getting shots from Blas and Carlos, plus drives from Sebastian.

Within the 12th minute of the game, the lead was out of reach for Skyy Vodka, Even though they dropped 13 points in the last 2 minutes of the game, it was not enough to match the excellent shooting and fast breaks from ASC.

Reed Mayer led the game and his team with 16 points, with teammate Blas contributing 13 points. David Santos led the Skyy Vodka with 14 points overall.
