Sablan pointed out that the game against the Phillippine National 13U boy’s team caught them off guard with their tenacious defense. “The national team was impressive to watch and we learned a lot from the loss,” said Sablan.
He added that conditioning and staying healthy are important elements when competing off island. “Due to injuries or foul problems in a game it came down to a rotation of seven players that kept us on the tour,” said Sablan.
The Typhoons return to Guam on Tuesday and will switch gears as they get ready to play in the SummerJam Tournament playoffs at Tamuning Gym.
