Pohnpei - Yap: 83-77
Kelvin Sam 44pts 19/38FG 5rbs
Cassidy Shoniber 11pts 3/7FG 6rbs

Pohnpei has a solid starting five but a very weak bench, 6th man Wallace Jacob being the only valuable contributor. Unfortunatly, none of the starter was consistent enough to lead the team during the entire tournament and the team missed a go-to-guy in the important moments. Kelvin Sam scored a tournament-high 44pts in the classification games and hit 21pts vs a strong Guam team but he needs to be more a leader on the floor. In the backcourt, JR Sonden and Cassidy Shoniber showed some nice stuffs but they seemed limitted against strong defences like Guam or RMI. Inside, Tomasi Mawi was a nice anchor in the paint while Branson Amida proved that he's a strong rebounder at the Micronesian standarts.

Vibes clinches U25 title - 8 months ago
Vibes banked on a good start en route to a 64-51 title win over the Ol'Aces 2 in the U25 division of the 2016 TanHoldings Christmas Basketball Tournament last Saturday at the Gillette Multipurpose Gymnasium. A 23-13 scoring spurt in the first quarter gave Vibes the early momentum and though the Ol'Aces 2 threatened the eventual champion a bit in the second period, the Matt Duenas-anchored squad still posted a double-digit winning margin in the one-game finals. Duenas and Franklin Macahito...   [read more]
