Team Guam defeated the University of the East, from Manila, 76-68 to claim the Guam Invitational Basketball Tournament title at the University of Guam Calvo Field House Saturday, July 30. With starting guard William Stinnett (191-G-86, college: Wenatchee Valley CC) and big man Curtis Washington (208-F-91, college: Georgia St.) on the bench, Team Guam head coach EJ Calvo looked to his reserves for a short reprieve against a tough University of the East team. In a pivotal point of the game - ahead by just one point at 51-50 - Kyle Husslien and Mekeli Wesley contributed to their teams' next 18 points to help Team Guam to a 67-57 lead. According to Calvo, the win is one that should be remembered. 'This is historical -- we're used to having tough Philippine universities come over to Guam (and win). It's been a tradition; we've seen it over the years. We can't remember the last time that Team Guam has defended home,' Calvo said. For Husslein, it was a game he had been waiting for the entire tournament. 'I was pretty nervous the past few games and my thinking coming into this game was just that I have to produce,' he said. 'I have to come in and play my role - whether it's controlling the tempo or knocking down shots or just playing good defense.' Husslein said whenever the pressure was on, he had to keep reminding himself that he had to continue to push. 'I told myself that I had to play the best game of my life. It was the championship game,' he said. Team Guam fell behind 21-19 in the first quarter and then held a slim two-point lead at 36-34 going into the half. The University of the East relied on an intense full-court press to force numerous Guam turnovers to keep the game close. It was in the end of the third quarter, with Stinnett picking up his fourth foul, when Husslein and Wesley went to work. The duo each hit a 3-pointer to give Guam a 57-50 lead, and after two buckets from the University of the East, Wesley answered with a putback to end the quarter. Heading into the final quarter, the duo added another series of back-to-back 3-pointers, before Wesley was on the receiving end of two passes from teammate Ollie Bradley for his final two baskets and a 10-point Guam lead. 'I was upset with myself, because I had a bad first half, so I just wanted to show something in the second half and help Team Guam claim this championship,' Wesely said. 'We came together, tightened it up in the second half and held on for the victory.' 'This is a summer when we're not in FIBA competition, so this meant a lot for us to get this experience from good, quality basketball teams. We're going to enjoy this experience and having this win on our trophy case ,because it hasn't been done before,' Calvo said. Washington led all scorers with 17 points, while Bradley finished with 15 and five rebounds. Team Guam crashed the boards with Husslein, Stinnett and Darren Hechanova pulling down seven boards each. The University of the East was led by Alvin Pasao, who scored 10 of his 15 points at the line and pulled down eight rebounds, plus four assists. Teammates Ronnie Deleon had 10 points, four rebounds and three assists.
