Tuesday, November 23, 2010, Singapore Brunei Barracudas committed 3 turnovers in the final 2 minutes not only cost them a game, but maybe a ticket to the playoffs too.

With the scores frozen at 74-70 and the Barracudas down by 4 points in less than 2 minutes to play, Chester Tolomia (191-G-80), Chris Commons (204-F-84, college: USC Aiken) and Ramsey Williams (178-G-80, college: Hawaii) each had a turnover in consecutive Barracudas possessions, causing the Barracudas the failure to execute any offensive plan to stay in the game. The Barracudas turned the ball over 16 times in the entire game including 8 in the forth quarter alone, in contrast the Slingers only had 8 in the entire game.
The Slingers were still reeling off of a devastating loss to the Philippines Patriots last week as they faced a high spirited Brunei Barracudas team, coming off a big win over Satria Muda Britama. The Barracudas started hot with a 10 -2 run behind 2 consecutive 3 pointers from Chester Tolomia but the Slingers retaliated with a 7 0 run of their own off a couple of baskets from Avenido Leonidez (186-G). Brunei would hold on to a 25 21 lead though as Tolomias hot streak continued, knocking down 2 more threes.

The Slingers started the second quarter with their running game again, taking the lead for the first time in the match at 33 31 with 6:50 remaining in the second quarter but the Brunei Barracudas, realizing that Jeffers Kyle (206-C-85, college: Oregon St.) was on the bench with 2 fouls from the first quarter, began an onslaught in the paint with Christopher Garnett (211-C-80, college: Indiana SE), Chris Commons and Bryan Faundo completely dominating the paint, scoring all 20 of their teams second quarter points. Slingers were keeping the game close as Skinner Marcus (201-F-86, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) caught fire, knocking down a variety of buckets for 12 points.

The game was becoming a battle in the paint for both teams with the return of Jeffers Kyle in the thrid as they began trading baskets in the paint. The Slingers once again got off to a quick start though with Vergara scoring 2 consecutive baskets but neither team was able to gain control of the game as they begun trading baskets. Both teams kept within 4 points of each other throughout the quarter as it ended at 64 - 65 with Brunei still in the lead.

Both teams were having terrific offensive game in the first three quarters, as the Slingers shooting 47 % from the field compare to Barracudas 50 %. Both teams were able to score 20 or more points in each of the first three quarters, but things changed when defence was the prominent theme in an ugly forth quarter with both teams only scoring a combined 15 points. The Singapore Slingers defence was holding strong, keyed off 3 steals by Leonidez Avenido, allowing only 5 points in the forth. The Barracudas were showing their defensive prowess as well but quick baskets from Marcus Skinner, Desmond Oh as well as a clutch basket from Steven Khoo propelled the Slingers to a 74 70 lead which they would hold for the remainder of the game. The Brunei Barracudas had a total of 8 turnovers in the forth quarter which cost them the seventh defeats of the season.

Slingers led by red hot Marcus Skinner, scoring 29 points on 12/19 shooting and grabbed 12 boards. Leonidez Avenido wasnt quite himself with 5/21 from the field, but able to contribute 12 points and 7 boards to Slingers must needed victory. Desmond Oh added 11 points 5 rebounds and captain Jeffers Kyle, who was in foul trouble in the first half, had 10 points and 5 boards.

Christopher Garnett scored 21 points for the Barracudas, but only manages to grab 4 rebounds and turned the ball over 6 times. Bryan Faundo provided a double-double with 18 points and 13 boards, Chester Tolomia chipped in 5 treys in 12 attempts to add 15 points along with 6 boards. Chris Commons added 14 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists.

With this victory, instead of getting themselves tangled up with the Barracudas for the forth place battle, the Singapore Slingers successfully (5-4) claimed back the third position by half game ahead of the Westports KL Dragons (4-4) . However for the Brunei Barracudas (3-7) , their playoffs hope is started to fade out as there are only 5 games remaining but the hole may be too big for them to fill.
