The JFK Islanders toppled the St. Paul Warriors Tuesday evening and the Tiyan Titans held down the Guam High Panthers as the GSPN Preseason Basketball Tournament is approaching it’s final rounds.

Islanders 76, Warriors 67

JFK closed the 3rd quarter on a momentum stealing run to propel towards the big victory. Down 52-43 in the final four minutes, the Islanders closed the quarter on a 12-1 run to take a 55-53 lead. Rim protection from Islanders Jonah Hahn, who had five blocks on the night, and post playmaking from Chris Morikami kept JFK ahead for good.

The Warriors got 20 points from DeAngelo Gallardo and 18 from Jahmar White, but the all-around effort from JFK proved too much as St. Paul made their tourney exit after reaching the championship game in 2017.

Titans 59, Panthers 52

Marc Evangelista was clutch for the Titans on both sides of the ball, scoring five of the teams final seven points to go along with five big blocks was enough to hold off an 18-point night from Raven Taitague. The Titans will advance to the next round Thursday.
