Despite a season-high 39 points and 12 rebounds production from William Sanborn (187-G-89, college: Ramapo), SKC's (2-7) balanced team effort delivered a 83-75 against the Chargers (5-4) on Sunday. The two teams were close on the outset with SKC holding on to a slim lead 25-22 at the first quarter. The Chargers would turn the game around in the 2nd, leading by 2 at the end of the half and as many as 7 in the third. However, SKC managed to slice the lead down to a single possession game in the fourth. With SKC up 76-75 with less than a minute to go, Sih Yong Jie hit a big three to put SKC up 79-75. After failing to respond with a field goal on the next possession, the Chargers would concede a game and give SKC their 2nd win of the season. Gerald Toh led SKC with 16 points and 12 rebounds, while Teo Jie Ming came off the bench with 18 and 7 rebounds. Zeagues had little held for Sanborn apart from Joel Villasin's double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Game 2: Tagawa 60 - SG Basketball 69
The other upset of the night saw seventh place Tagawa (4-5) drop another game 60-69 to SG Basketball (3-6). Tagawa held a 25-16 lead at the end of the first, and was up 38-29 at the end of the half, but a costly 7 point third quarter would cause the lead to be down to a single point 45-44 by the end of the third. SG Basketball would take their first lead of the game with Lim Shengyu (192-F/C-90)'s three-pointer, putting his team up 49-47 with 7 minutes left in the 4th. Chan Wai Hon would then score 6 straight points on a shot and the foul and a three, stretching SG Basketball lead up 56-48, and allowing them to hang on for the win. Singaporean national Lim Sheng Yu had 22 points and 8 rebounds for SG Basketball. Ng Shi Yang (182-SF-89) had 13 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists while Chan Wai Hon added 17 points and 4 rebounds off the bench for the team. Yi Chen led Tagawa with 12 points off the bench, while Hibshamir had 11 points and 8 rebounds, but saw little help on offense from the rest of the team.
Game 3: Adroit 75 - GHUB 84
GHUB's (7-2) strong second quarter play prove to be the difference (3-5) as the 4th placed team defeated a stubborn Adroit Widodo (4-5) 84-75 in a thriller. Justin Monroe (193-G-87, college: Morehouse) led GHUB with 33 points and 11 rebounds, and Jonathan Hart (196-F, college: Barton, NC) added 24 points and 16 rebounds. But GHUB's stifling defense on Adroit's star Kenneth Smith (195-G/F-87, college: Lourdes) proved to be effective. Smith finished the game with only 16 points from 6 of 22 shooting. While GHUB held a 12 point lead at the start of the fourth, Adroit's big man Koa Wei Quan would come alive, scoring 8 of his 19 points in a stretch. With 2 minutes and 47 seconds left the game, Kenneth Smith hit a big three to bring his team to within 1 point 72-73. However, Justin Monroe would respond with 8 straight points of his own to put the Adroit out of reach.
Game 4: Proform 64 - Falcons 71
In another thrilling game, Proform (3-6) nearly handed Falcons (8-1) their 2nd consecutive loss at Delta. However, they suffered a major mental lapse in the last four minutes, enabling the Falcons to go on a 22-2 run to close the game. It was a low-scoring affair with multiple lead changes in the first three quarters, with the Falcons holding on to a slim 28-24 lead by the half and the game was tied at 45 apiece at the end of the third. Proform would then go on a 17-4 run to start the 4th quarter. Gu Qiaodong would hit three unanswered three-pointers and Navin Crump would hit a jumpshot to put Proform up 62-49 with 4 minutes and 55 seconds remaining. Burrage Kannon (190-G-90, college: UTSA) hit a three with 1 minute and 39 seconds remaining to reduce Proform's lead to just 1, 63-62. Amir Boucenna (185-G) would convert another three with 1 minute and 6 seconds left to put the Falcons up 65-64. The Falcons would score 6 more unanswered points to claim the victory. Burrage Kannon led the team with 33 point s and 9 rebounds, while Boucenna who came alive in the fourth added 12 points and 6 rebounds. Gu Qiaodong and Samer Anouti had 14 points apiece to lead Proform, while Navin Crump added 11 points and 12 rebounds. Usually high-scoring guard Noel Pollock (185-PG-88) was held to just 10 points.
Game 5: SAFSA 31 - Supras 106
It was an entirely one-sided affair as the league-leading Supras (9-0) kept SAFSA (0-9) winless in a merciless 106-31 victory. SAFSA was held to just 22% shooting behind Supras defense. The game was literally over in the first half when Supras jumped to a 48-13 lead. Jemell Swafford (196-F-85, college: Cal.Baptist) recorded a triple-double with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, while Jamond Powe (182-PG-84) had 17 points, 8 rebounds, 10 assists and 8 steals for the night. SAFSA had little to celebrate in this game, with no players in double figures.
Game 6: AMK 93 - Eunos 56
In another predictable game, AMK Bravehearts (7-2) handed their Eunos United (2-7) their third straight loss in a resounding 93-56 victory. Marshall Tyrone (203-C-92, college: Colorado St.-Pueblo) had a monster game with 34 points and 17 rebounds, while Brewer Tre (198-G-90, college: CS San Bernar.) added 28 points, 4 rebounds and 3 steals. Guillermo Amengual was the high man for Eunos with 16 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists, but he received little help from his teammates. Eunos' leading scorer Ignacio Leonori was held in check and managed just 10 points. After a slow defensive start in the first quarter, the Bravehearts managed to play good defense, jumping to a 40-20 lead by the half. The lead grew to 55-22 on Tyson Lawrence (193-G-88, college: CS San Bernar.)'s layup with 6 minutes to go, but Eunos would go on a quick scoring run to end the quarter 67-41 Bravehearts. It was still insufficient to change the outcome of the game as the Bravehearts cruised to an easy victory.

Jobstreet.com Singapore Slingers (ASEAN League) strengthened their roster with addition of experienced 35-year old Australian ex-international center Luke Schenscher (216-120kg-82, college: Georgia Tech).

For the fourth straight time, the Singapore Slingers found a way to outplay the defending champions Westports Malaysia Dragons. On Friday night, the Slingers got a hard-earned overtime 112-110 win over the Dragons at the House of Champions, Gem-In Mall, in Cyberjaya, Malaysia. Singapore's two World imports Xavier Alexander (198-G-88, college: S.Nazarene) and Justin Howard (209-C-81, college: Mercer) powered their way into monster numbers in the victory. Howard tallied 32 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists. Alexander meanwhile put up 34 points, even going 16-for-22 from the line, and pulled down 15 rebounds. He also did damage on the defensive end with 6 steals. In another highly-contested and certainly action-packed game, both teams displayed incredible grit and fortitude. Alexander rescued the Slingers from the jaws of defeat as he forced the overtime period. He sank three-free throws and got two steals in the overtime period but it was Wei Long Wong (187-G-88) who sealed the win after making two free throws with 20 seconds left to extend their lead 112-108. 'We came out with a team spirt. We full court pressed them. We got into our game,' Slingers head coach Neo Beng Siang said. The Dragons had a 10-point lead late in the second period thanks largely to their latest addition, Kiwi Gardner (170-PG-93, college: Providence). The point guard came out firing and the Dragons played inspired as they had a 52-43 advantage heading into halftime. All momentum was in favor of the Dragons until the Slingers finally woke up in the third period. Slingers employed pressure defense to slow down Kiwi Gardner and executed better offensively. As a result, they overwhelmed the Dragons in the third period, outscoring them, 32-16. The tide shifted towards the visiting team heading into the final frame. Singapore even mounted an 8-point lead, 88-80, in the last six minutes of the game. However, the Dragons had a run of their own to cut down the deficit. The Slingers have had a couple of games this season wherein they would blow leads in the dying minutes. In their previous game, they even allowed the Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions to come out of a 20-point hole. 'Stamina wise, we are undermanned,' explained coach Siang. 'We need to get ourselves adjusted to that.' Malaysia got the lead momentarily off of Skylar Spencer (208-F/C-94, college: San Diego St.)'s free throws. Fortunately for the Slingers, Alexander was there to save them, hitting a tough shot underneath the basket with three seconds left to force overtime. In the extra session, the Slingers were able to execute on both ends of the floor to seal the win. Kiwi Gardner, the Dragons' latest recruit, tried valiantly to carry his team. He finished with 37 points, including 5 three-pointers, 8 assists, and 7 steals in his ABL debut. He suffered cramps early in the fourth quarter and was in-and-out of their lineup in the closing moments of overtime. 'Kiwi Gardner today killed us. Luckily, he's not fit right now. But he's a good insert for the KL Dragons,' coach Siang commended. 'He's amazing. He got 37 points in his first game. We expected him to go for 40 because we heard about him. He's quick, he's fast.' After playing his career game in their last win, Ng Han Bin had another good shooting night as he made 4 of his 6 triples and scored 13 points. Wei Long and Leon Kwek combined for 20 points. For Westports Malaysia, Spencer and Joshua Munzon served as Kiwi Gardner's main back-ups. The World import finished with 27 points and 16 rebounds while the Heritage had 19 points and 4 steals but he was not able to finish the games as he fouled out in the extra period. The Slingers improve to a 10-3 record with this win. They've now finished their season series with both the Dragons and the Long Lions. 'The most important thing for us is we're trying to get us is trying to get the home-court advantage,' the coach concluded. Courtesy of: aseanbasketballleague.com
