Sashays boys hoops is still providing the spectators and supporters with some exciting action. All the high school basket boys teams had faced defeat in the young season, but the Leone Lions appear to control the momentum after beating the Samoana Sharks last Friday.

Coaches are strictly enforcing disciplinary measures against their players, that is they are benching players for being absent, skipping classes, or failing to make the minimum 2.0 grade point average (GPA).

Leone is now starting to find their team chemistry. They are a good defensive team, averaging 45 points per game so far. They are beating their opponents on accurate middle range shooting.

Samoana had a good start but they are now showing signs of inconsistency, resulting in poor shootings and slow transition.

The Nu'uuli PolyTech (NPT) Wildcats lost their first two games, but they are now making a tremendous turnaround and a team to reckon with. They are a good rebounding team at both sides of the court, and always had second-chance shots at that their opponents.

The Marist Crusaders have yet to win a game, and they are the only team with less than ten players on their roster. They don't have enough bench players, no supporting cast, and no other scorer beside their scoring machine, Nicholas.

The Faga'itua Vikings and the Tafuna Warriors are still tough defensively against their oppositions, but lack inside domination and two of the very poor shooting teams. They will be tough teams to compete with if outside shooting improves.




1st Quarter:

NPT started with a 3-pointer by #25 Aumaga, then Faga'itua made a 4-0 run until NPT #7 Dantley, scored two points. Both teams have two players to score points, Aumaga and Dantley for NPT, while Ata and Daniel score baskets for Faga'itua. NTP 5 - Faga'itua 4.

2nd Quarter:

Faga'itua forced the pace of the game with quick passes and pushed the ball over to the other side of the court, which made NPT foul. Faga'itua made just 2 free-throws out of 9 times at the line, however, they steadily pulled away from the struggling NPT. Five of their players all scored points during their 11-3 run in the second. NPT continued to struggle at their shots, missing 12-of-12 before #43 Peni, sank a triple from above the arch. Faga'itua 21 - NPT 10.

3rd Quarter:

Faga'itua continued to missed from the line, while NPT continued to miss from the field. NPT scored just 3 points in this quarter, all by #33 Scott. Daniel of Faga'itua led his team in the third with 4-points, and Ata went to the line 6 times and missed all his throws. Faga'itua 27 - NPT 13.

4th Quarter:

#20 Iao, connected a 3-pointer to open the fourth for NPT, followed by Aumaga, Matthew, Sherman scoring deuces, and JB scoring 4 points.

Faga'itua sophomore star center #42 Ata, highlighted the game with his spectacular dunk that prompted spectators to their feet cheering his sensational show. He had 10 points in the fourth and 25 total points, and was outstanding in rebounding the ball at both ends of the court. He led all players in scoring and rebounds.

Final score: Faga'itua Vikings 43 - NPT Wildcats 26
