Robert Hite
EASYWAY made it two out of two in Group C of the Mum Bakery Cup with an 88-67 victory over Morsjaya Juramas last night. American import Robert Hite (188-G-84, college: Miami, FL, agency: TNG), who is overcoming a stomach virus, produced a game-high of 22 points to pace Easyway in the win. Compatriot Michael Pilgrim (203-F-84, college: LSU-Shreveport) added 18 points while Jamri Ramlee chipped in 11 points, which included three triples. On the other hand, Robert Sanz (191-G/F-81) topscored for Morsjaya with 20 points. Vincent Superio contributed 17 points while John Foronda added 13 points to a losing cause. It was a foul plagued matchup right from the start and it was Morsjaya who suffered most when Filipino import Foronda had to be taken out with a minute left in the opening period after picking up his third foul at the Brunei Basketball Association court in Batu Bersurat. Easyway were getting the ball to their imports for points with Hite and Michael Pilgrim each notching eight points in the frame. A three-pointer by Charlie Bolias at the buzzer put them up 23-13 heading into the second quarter. Morsjaya started off the second period with five unanswered points and drawing three fouls from their opponents within a minute. Easyway regrouped and managed to maintain their lead. It was sloppy midway through with turnovers by both sides and Foronda eventually picked up his fourth with more than three minutes left to halftime. Easyway led by as many as 12 points but Morsjaya got back from the charity stripe - who knocked down a total of 15 attempts in the quarter - to close to 37-31 with more than a minute left. But Easyway answered with an 8-2 run including back-to-back treys to carry a 44-34 lead into halftime. Morsjaya closed to within 46-39 just two minutes into the third quarter but things took a turn quickly as Easyway went on a 9-0 run. It was clear that Morsjaya were out of steam and Easyway took advantage to score on the break and extended their advantage to 66-51 going in to the final period. Easyway went with none of their imports to start the fourth period and even managed six offensive rebounds in the first minute. Morsjaya managed to close in to 70-60 midway through but a 6-0 personal run by Hite sealed it for Easyway. Easyway coach Kevin Reece praised his opponents for the tough game and also hopes that his charges will improve further with time. 'I take my hat off to our opponents as they came out and played hard but the only thing is that they ran out of gas. We are defensive minded as always and teams can play us through three but not four quarters,' said Reece in an interview with The Brunei Times after the triumph. 'We didn't execute that well on offence and had a lot of turnovers. We are continuing to gel as a team but it is good to have the imports as they are like two extra coaches on the floor,' he added. 'We will continue to play better just like every other team in the competition and will play every game like it is a championship match,' concluded the former national coach. The earlier game saw Akira/Kim Engineering beat Infrared 81-76 in Group D. The competition continues tomorrow with D'Sunlit against I-Cyber in Group A at 7.30pm. The second game pits TLR against Concepts Computer in the same group at 9pm.
