HUMP day Wednesday was busy at the Tamuning Gym as the Bud Light Golden Hoops Classic 2012 Fall Tournament hosted four games at Tamuning Gym.
Several games on the evening gave everyone in attendance tons to cheer about. In one of the more exciting games of the night, the Tamuning Typhoons took on a very tough Four Stars team. Both teams showed up with their A-game. However, in the end only one walked out victorious and it was Tamuning who edged out their opponents 37-35.
Throughout the game, neither team was able to build and hold a substantial lead. The battle back and forth continued through both halves. However, it wasn't until late in the game when Four Stars began to make a move. With only minutes left in the game, things seemed to be working in favor of Four Stars as they began to close the gap in hopes of gaining a come-from-behind win. The Typhoons proved too strong defensively and were able to put a halt to the surge for the win.
The Typhoons’ Pierce Evangelista and Andrew Borja led the offensive scoring with 12 and 11 points apiece. In the losing effort, the Four Stars’ Teks Erwin drained 11 points, while teammate Jayme Saperna chipped in nine.
Bud Light Golden Hoops action resumes later this weekend with several games on schedule.
