Colonia, Yap – Guam’s ladies kept their feet on the gas against Chuuk after securing an 84-point victory in Day 2 of the Micro Games. Guam’s Joy Pangilinan scored a break-away bucket to give Guam 101 points, to much delight of the fans in the building. The 101-17 score says it all.

Destiny Castro led the way with 20 points and Pangilinan added 18.

Men run down Kiribati

A few highlight slam dunks from Guam’s Ben Borja was enough to win the crowd as Guam cruised over Kribati 71-49. A strong showing of offense in the first half left Kiribati in the dust 48-20 by halftime.

The starters got a lengthy rest in the closing quarters as the team will next play Pohnpei on Wednesday, which will feature the tournament debut of Mikeli Wesli, who arrived Tuesday night.
