The Toothfairies defeated Phoenix 108-94 in a Guam Basketball Association playoff game at the Father Duenas Phoenix Center Thursday night, advancing to the next round. It was an aggressive game between two well-matched teams, with a combined 47 fouls. Phoenix had 28 fouls while the Toothfairies had 19, and Phoenix racked up 17 points on free throws while the Toothfairies notched 27. Phoenix jumped to a 24-21 lead in the first quarter and kept that lead for the majority of the second quarter. With 48 seconds left in the half, the Toothfairies took the lead before William Stinnett (191-G-86, college: Wenatchee Valley CC) made a 3-pointer for the Phoenix to tie the game at 46-46 at the half. The second half was all about the Toothfairies, as the defense stepped up to slow down the Phoenix offense. The Toothfairies led 75-67 at the end of the third quarter, and were able to extend their lead, winning 108-94. 'I think it was just defensive pressure,' said Kirk Long. 'We kept up the energy and were able to get stops and fast breaks which ignited our offense. We were able to get steals which gave us easy baskets and deflated them and got our confidence up.' Long was the leading scorer for the Toothfairies with 25 points. He also had eight rebounds and five steals. William Stinnett led Phoenix with 27 points and 11 rebounds despite missing much of the second half after getting into foul trouble. The Toothfairies started the season out with an undefeated streak before losing games and dropping to the fifth seed of the playoffs. With their win over Phoenix, the only team they hadn't beaten going into the playoffs, they feel confident moving forward. 'It's definitely big,' said Long. 'Now that we've beaten Phoenix tonight, we've beaten every team once. That should give us the confidence to keep moving forward. Any team could beat us moving forward, but we have to realize if we play within our strengths and stay focused we can beat anybody.' The Toothfairies will play Team Justice on Sunday in the semifinals.
MVP defeated the University of Guam Tritons 104-82 in the second Guam Basketball Association game of the night. The Tritons were leading MVP 23-20 after one quarter, but struggled in the second half, going six minutes without making a basket. MVP took advantage and was able to take a 54-34 lead into halftime. MVP outscored the Tritons 34 to 11 in the second quarter The lead stayed at 18-22 points all the way to the final buzzer. The Tritons were led by Eric Reyes (191-F-67) with 28 points and eight rebounds, and Andrew Carlos added 14. MVP had six players in double figures, led by JP Cruz with 18. MVP will play the Bombers in the GBA semifinals Sunday at the UOG Calvo Field House.
