After having a game an hour before, the Anderson Bombers showed no signs of debilitation after getting the big 79-46 win against the smaller, yet tough, Team Justice at the Tamuning gym for the Golden Hoop Classic.

Team Justice seemed to be confident after scoring the first basket in the opening half, which then became the only lead they had throughout the whole game. The Anderson Bombers retaliated with a comeback three by Ollie Bradley, which then led to 13-0 run. A few possessions later, the Bombers were able to bring the lead to 24-6 with Ledget Glover getting 3 consecutive fast break layups.

Despite the height difference, Team Justice played physical and it was able put a halt to the Bombers run in the half. In a couple of plays later before the half ended, Rogue Charfauras and Joe Terlaje put up strong defensive efforts that led to easy fastbrooks.

In the end, the efforts of Team Justice were not enough to bring the lead down for a comeback. The Anderson Bombers’ Ledget Bradley and Brian Cooper tied for top scorer both scoring 18 points. For Team Justice, Joe Terlaje scored a total of 14 points and Rogue Charfauras with 13.

Tamuning Typhoons I 94, Tamuning Typhoons II 64

The score was close in the end of the first half with Typhoons II trailing Typhoons I 41-31. However, after halftime Typhoons I started to pull away from their brother team as Will Stinnett and James Collins started attacking the boards and the help of other teammates come up big of defense, thus widening the gap even more.

Typhoons I got the easy win with Will Stinnett leading all scorers with 22 points. Followed by James Collins and Seve Susioco both putting in 16 points. For Typhoons II, Earvin Jose led his team with a total of 20 points and Ryan Nangauto with 15.

Andersen Bombers 57, Four Stars 36

With a very physical and down to the wire game played, the Andersen Bombers were able to triumph over the small, but quick, Four Stars 57-36. Dispute the lack of height Four Stars had to compete with; they were able to use speed and evasiveness to crash the boards to even get a chance to get over the tall Anderson Bombers.

Ledget Glover and Brian Cooper of the Andersen Bombers tied for top scorer with both scoring a total of 13 points. Despite the loss, Julius Mackwelung led his team with a score of 11 points.
