The Sharks Club improved to a 2-2 record in the GYBA Drug Free 18-and-under boys basketball division Wednesday after defeating the Malesso Red team 37-23 at the Guam Sports Complex gym.

In a battle of north vs south, the Sharks built an early lead and never looked back. GSPN high all-star John Buan controlled the transition game for the Sharks to help his team cruise to victory.

The Sharks quickly built a 10-2 lead led by 6 early points by Buan. The Reds’ Nolan Paras ended the run after a timeout with a baseline jumper.

Evander DeGuzman hustled on both ends of the court for the Shark’s Club to close the half recording 2 steals and scoring 4 points with a comfortable 18 point lead.

“We wanted to work on good ball movement and execute on our plays,” said De Guzman of their game plan.

Coming out of halftime, Cody Aflleje and Seth Surber each hit 3-pointers for the Reds to trim the Shark deficit to 12 points. The Sharks’ Anthony Castro made the “and 1” lay-in and converted on the free throw to halt the Reds’ momentum. In the final period, Chris Yerten and Buan answered every basket by Malesso to close out the game.

“We are a small team but we work really hard and our goal is to just do our best and have fun,” said De Guzman.

Buan led all scorers with 15 points, he also had 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Yerten had 7 points, De Guzman had 4 points, 8 rebounds and 3 steals for the Sharks.
