The University of Guam Recreation Department Trident Men’s Basketball Club broke their 14 game losing streak on Tuesday night in the Guam Men’s College Basketball League with a 103-51 rout over Pacific Islands University Tide in the UOG Calvo Field House.
Pacific Island was late showing up to the game and had only 4 minutes to get prepared for the contest, so the Tridents took advantage and went out to an early lead that PIU could never recover from.
The Tridents went up 49-18 at half and while the Tide settled down in the 2nd half, the game was never in doubt as the Tridents ran hard and scored a lot of uncontested lay-ups in the 2nd half.
Davin Sudo led the Trident MBC with 29 points on the night and Nikka Lekka added 13 points as the Tridents spread the scoring out to 12 different players. Dinery Lorenzo scored 24 points for the Tide, the only double digit scorer for PIU.
The Tridents improve to 1-2 on the season while PIU falls to 0-3 so far. The Tridents take on Harvest Baptist Bible College on Friday at 6:15pm while Pacific Islands takes on league leading UOG Tritons at 8:00pm in the UOG Calvo Field House.
In the 2nd game of the evening, 2nd place Guam Community College defeated Harvest Baptist 87 to 65 to push their record to 3-1 in the league. HBBC is now 1-2 in the GMCBL. GCC begins the 2nd half of the season on Saturday, at 4:00pm, against the Trident Men’s Basketball Club, while Harvest Baptist Bible College plays the Trident MBC on Friday night at 6:15pm in the UOG Calvo Field House. The first half of the GMCBL ends on Friday night, while the 2nd half of the season starts on Saturday.
