KFC Bombers are the 2017 GBA Champs - Jun 1, 2017


On Tuesday night for game three of the Guam Basketball Association Season Three Finals, the KFC Bombers defeated the regular season's best, MVP Stars 103-96 at the UOG Calvo Field House. The Bombers finished the regular season 9-3 to the MVP Stars 12-0. Each team swept their opponents in the semis and split the first two against each other. KFC Guam President Frank Cruz said it was an exciting final and that he's happy to have built an association with the Bombers, who for many years were known as the team from Andersen. 'This is the third season and we've sponsored the Bombers for two seasons. KFC as a corporate group wanted to connect with the armed forces and we wanted to reach out and connect through sports,' said Cruz, 'I personally am a fan of basketball and I've known Gerrard Barnes, the Bombers coach, for years so this was a good opportunity for us.' Last year, the Bombers had lost a key player and did not make it to the finals.This year, MVP ran an undefeated season and only lost to the Bombers twice in the finals. 'The Bombers peaked at the right time. Even as MVP did not have key player Joe Blas, the third game was the best game of the three with lots of back and forth in the third quarter,' said Cruz, 'but it was a three-point shot by Tony Moses that put the Bombers out of reach.' The Bombers are the only military team out of the seven teams. All are sponsored by local businesses except for the varsity team from the University of Guam. "We will continue to support the Bombers and we also want them to network with the local teams and the GBA is the NBA equivalent for Guam,' said Cruz, 'and I want to thank the GBC who runs the league and for putting up the league, which the island has been missing. Without them, the league wouldn't be where it is today.' In game one of the finals the Bombers upset MVP, 113-94. And in game two MVP game back to dominate with a 102-90 win over the Bombers.
