HOME TEAMS SPLIT YIGO YOUTH TOURNEY

The 2015 Yigo Youth Basketball League concluded in dramatic fashion Saturday evening with the Guam teams splitting the two championship matches with the visiting teams from the Philippines.

16U Yigo 60, Philippines 58

Yigo’s Jason Diaz and Josh came up big in the clutch while holding off a late-game rally from the visiting Philippines team in the second half. In the final minute, Philippines Sorita got hacked and sank both free throws to get within a single possession 60-58, but the Yigo defense held strong to give the Philippines team their first loss in the tournament.

14U Philippines 42, FBLG 32

The high flying Hawks couldn’t get past the undefeated Philippines stars in the finals. The visiting team held a double-digit lead through most of the contest, with the Hawks getting as close as only eight points in the second half.
