Earlier this summer, Pohnpei participated in the 2006 Micronesian Basketball Tournament in the Northern Marianas Islands. The team lead by scoring forward Kelvin Sam only won two games there and ended the tournament at the 7th spot.

JR Sonden 27pts 11/26FG 9rbs
Tom Mawi 25pts 9/14FG 10rbs

classification games:
Pohnpei - Chuuk: 79-87
Cassidy Shoniber 21pts 8/18FG 7rbs
Tom Mawi 16pts 8/17FG 7rbs

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.
