PNG: MEN’S BASKETBALL TO PLAY FOR GOLD

Guam’s only loss in the 2015 Pacific Games was avenged Saturday afternoon as Guam trounced Tahiti 89-57 behind a huge third quarter from Joe Blas and a steady performance from Tai Wesley. The win punches Guam a ticket to the gold medal game against Fiji, which they beat in an overtime buzzer-beater Wednesday night.

Blas hit all of his three pointers in the 3rd quarter and capped off the afternoon with a 22-point performance as Wesley added another double-double with 26 points and 10 rebounds.

Guam played suffocating defense and held Tahiti to just 22 points in the first half while grabbing a 16-point lead (38-22).

Guam last won gold in 1979, ironically in Fiji. Since then, it’s been a string of silver medals.
