Pro players dont come around Guam too often, let alone play a game of their profession. Last Saturday night, local basketball fans were treated to a level of basketball not scene in person too often as the PBAs Talk N Text Texters played an exhibition game against our Guam National Mens Team. Thanks to organizers Bojo Molina, Ferdinand Permalino and Frank Cruz in cooperation with Guam head coach E.J. Calvo, we got a chance to watch a great exhibition between Micronesias best team and perennial Pacific Games powerhouse versus the PBAs reigning champions. Its never been done before. With a large Filipino community on island, it was as expected a pro Talk N Text crowd, but our boys came to play. We charged out to a 7-0 lead and actually led at halftime. Seve Susuico was a man possessed, holding his own inside as Guams tallest player and knocking down both his midrange and outside shots. J.P. Cruz, who earlier won the 3-point contest before the game stayed hot during the game and dropped some bombs from the outside like he normally does. Imagine if we had our off-island bigs playing with DeAndre Walker, Earnest Ross and Mekeli and Tai Wesley. But something at halftime told me things were going to change in the second half. Theres no way these pros were going to come here and lose, could they? That would be pretty embarrassing. Heck, if Guam beats them, it would say a whole lot about the PBA. As expected, Talk N Text flipped the switch in the third quarter as they threw us a lineup that averaged 65″ and applied a defense that suffocated our team, they could do nothing but shoot 3′s. They were too tall and too long. Jay Washington (200-C-81, college: Eckerd), Harvey Carey (188-F-79, college: Sonoma St.), Larry Fonacier (185-F/G-82) and Matthew Allen Ganuelas (195-F-90) were just too tall and too talented for our Guam boys. Offensively, it was a thing of beauty. The crisp passing. The precision cutting. The obvious fluidity and chemistry you would expect from a professional team. They turned a 41-34 halftime deficit into a double-digit lead in a snap of a finger and never looked back. The final score is irrelevant. The big winner here is Guam basketball. Never have they been able to get in a game like this on Guam. They look to the Andersen Bombers for their biggest competition and it ends there. Our team did great and theres nothing to be ashamed about. They made Guam proud that night. On the same week the Guam Legislature passed Bill 388 that would provide help to renovate the Tiyan Gym to become home of Guam Basketball, our national team gets a chance to face a pro team. Two huge accomplishments in a matter of days.
