Game 1: Zeagues Chargers 52 - Proform Basketball 78
The first game of Round 10 saw Proform Basketball Club (4-6) bounce back from a disappointing loss against Falcons Basketball Club last week to take down the slumping Zeagues Chargers (5-5) 78-52. It was a low scoring but defensive first half which saw Proform taking a 14-point lead to go up 33-19. The Chargers could not get their offense going for the entire game as Proform stretched its lead to a maximum of 32 points with 3 minutes left in the game. The Chargers also committed a season-high 28 turnovers. Usually high-scoring William Sanborn (187-G-89, college: Ramapo) from Zeagues Chargers was limited to a dismal 11 points in this game. Joel Villasin on the other hand was the high man for the Chargers with 16 points and 13 rebounds, but had little help from his teammates. Singaporean-American standout Navin Crump led Proform, filling the stats sheet at virtually every category 15 points, 12 rebounds, 6 steals, 3 assists and 2 blocks. Team Captain Noel Pollock (185-PG-88) added 20 points and 4 steals for Proform.
Game 2: Eunos United 81 - SKC 77
SKC's (2-8) playoff hopes were dashed by Eunos United (3-7) in a thrilling game that saw Eunos come up tops 81-77. SKC had recorded their second win against the Chargers just a week before, whereas Eunos was coming off a loss to AMK Bravehearts. The shift in the starting line-up that saw Eunos' 6'11 Vijay Ragaven seated on the bench prove effectively as the team managed to trade height to match SKC's speed for most of the game. The first half was a tight encounter with SKC holding a slim 1-point lead at the end of the 1st quarter and Eunos holding a 2-point lead at the end of the half. However, a high-scoring 33 point third quarter would make a difference as Eunos led by 19 points to go up 65-46 at the end of the 3rd. SKC managed to launch at late comeback in the 4th. Sim Zhen's made free-throw cut the lead down to single-digits with 2 minutes left to go, and Low Remus (183-F-94)'s three-point shot would cut it down to just 6 with 51 seconds left. After Russ Sarip of Eunos was fouled, Sim Zhen hit another three to trim the lead to just 4 points, 77-73 with 41 seconds left in the game, but Amengual would knock down two free-throws to seal the deal for his team. Mikhail Stamenov was the high man for Eunos with 20 points and 18 rebounds, while Ignacio Leonori and Guillermo Amengual added 23 and 16 points apiece. Sim Zhen would lead SKC with 15 points, while Low Remus has 13 points in this encounter.
Game 3: SG Basketball 75 - AMK Bravehearts 99
AMK's Big Three combined for 85 points as AMK Bravehearts (8-2) demolished SG Basketball (3-7) 99-75 to record their 5th straight win. Brewer Tre (198-G-90, college: CS San Bernar.) recorded a triple-double, leading the Bravehearts with 29 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 2 steals. Marshall Tyrone (203-C-92, college: Colorado St.-Pueblo) who played through a injured finger still managed 29 points and 10 rebounds, while Tyson Lawrence (193-G-88, college: CS San Bernar.) regained his shooting form and contributed 27 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists. As AMK jumped to a 35-24 first quarter lead, there was no turning back for the high-powered offense team. The lead increased to 15 points, 52-37 at the half and 18 points at the third with no hopes of a SG Basketball comeback. Lim Shengyu (192-F/C-90) led SG Basketball with 22 points but shot only 8 for 22 from the field. The sharp-shooting SG Basketball brothers Fang Ching and Fang Cie contributed 16 points apiece, but it was insufficient to stop the surging Bravehearts from dominating the entire game. With this win, the AMK is now 8-2 with one game left in the regular season against potential playoff rivals GHUB which holds a similar 8-2 record. A win will allow AMK to finish the season as the 3rd seed.
Game 4: Singapore Supras 106 - Adroit 80
The Singapore Supras (10-0) maintained their perfect record once again with a 106-80 win over Adroit (4-6). Supras jumped quickly to build a 17-point 31-14 lead at the end of the first quarter, but fielding their reserves in the second quarter would prove costly as Adroit quickly trimmed the league down to 10 points with 5:36 left in the second quarter on Dorjee's fouled on layup. Jemell Swafford (196-F-85, college: Cal.Baptist) to wide the point margin again with a thunderous dunk that saw Supras go up 45-28 once again. However, the lead was down to 10 as Zhou Zhen Jie sank a three for Adroit. The quarter would end with Poh Wei Hao missing an easy shot for Adroit and Jemell Swafford capitalising on it to give Supras the 12-point lead at the half. The second half was an entirely different story as Adroit struggled to connect on offense. Supras would built a 29 point lead at the end of the 3rd and cruise for the rest of the game. Jemell Swafford led Supras with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists, while Spencer Templeton came off the bench with 18. Zhou Zhen Jie would lead Adroit with 18 points, but his team was out rebounded 30-44 by the overpowering Supras squad.
Game 5: GHUB 89 - Tagawa 73
A strong second quarter would prove to the difference as GHUB (8-2) edged out slumping Tagawa (4-6) 89-73 to set up battle of the 3rd place with Bravehearts. At the end of first quarter, the score was close as GHUB held a mere 2-point lead against their opponents. However, Jonathan Hart (196-F, college: Barton, NC) and Justin Monroe (193-G-87, college: Morehouse) came alive in the second quarter scoring at will to put GHUB up 43-28 by the half. The second half was a close encounter by both teams, but Tagawa was unable to reduce the double-digit lead for the entire game. Jonathan Hart would lead GHUB with 31 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists while Justin Monroe added 31 points and 9 rebounds. Hibshamir bin Ibrahim came of the bench to lead Tagawa with 16 points and Yi Chen added 15 points in the loss.
Game 6: SAFSA 48 - Falcons 84
Burrage Kannon (190-G-90, college: UTSA) had 32 points and 9 rebounds while Amir Boucenna (185-G) had 19 points and 7 assists as Falcons Basketball (9-1) blowout SAFSA (0-10) 84-48 in the final game of the night. Falcons jumped to a 26-12 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the second quarter would look shaky as the normally high-scoring Falcons could only manage 10 points. The second half would be a different story, as the Falcons managed to maintain their solid defense while outscoring SAFSA 52-29. SAFSA had little offensive power to match the Falcons, shooting just 28% from the field for the entire game. Alvin Hartono would be the high man for SAFSA with 14 points and 6 rebounds while big man Alvin Chun had 6 points and 11 rebounds.

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
