LIVE BASKETBALL….at the UOG Fieldhouse – dubbed “Showdown at the Fieldhouse” The Guam National Team took on The PBA Talk ‘N Text Texters.
Mangilao – GUAM – The crowd was out and showing love for the visiting Philippines pro team, The Talk ’n Texters. The national team looked great coming out! Guam able to get some early critical buckets to fall early. JP Cruz, also winner of the 3 point contest, showing his long range ability. Guam National Team get the early start and lead, they lead by 9 at the half. Talk ’N Texters, not a pro team for no reason, they are able to re-access and change their game plan during the break. Texters come out with a purpose in the sec ond half. The former Guam RedBull, current PBA Texter, Larry Fonacier was key in the Texters scoring surge! They go on to outscore GUAM, 33-14 in the 3rd quarter alone. The 4th was ALL TEXTER, Matt Ganuelas, he scores 8 of his 12 point to help put Guam away. Guam’s Seve Susuico had a solid game. He lead Guam with 22 points despite the loss. Everyone gets a shot in this one, National Team head coach EJ Calvo plays every player for the professional competition exposure. Guam National Team loses in the end, 94-66 the final at The Field House.
When I heard about the exhibition match between the Guam and the P.I., I thought to myself, “Not another slaughter!” 94-66 is nothing to shout about unless you’re a member of the P.I. team. While we’re at it, let’s match the varsity teams against the jv teams in interscholastic sports just to make the games more exciting.
