Tre Brewer
In the final game of the Elite 8 Playoffs group stage, the 2nd seed Falcons Basketball took on the 3rd seed Bravehearts in a rematch of last year's finals. While Falcons Basketball had previously defeated AMK Bravehearts 79-75 in the regular season, it was the Bravehearts who took this game 96-87 to top Group B.

Burrage Kannon (190-G-90, college: UTSA) of the Falcons Basketball had a monster game with 54 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 blocks, including 8 three-pointers. But it was Brewer Tre (198-G-90, college: CS San Bernar.) and the Bravehearts that finally edged out a win.

It was a close encounter with the Bravehearts holding a slim 2-point lead to go up 18-16 at the end of the first quarter. But in the second quarter, DingLoon Tay would hit a three-pointer to bring the Falcons Basketball up by 5 (31-26) at the 6 minutes 24 seconds mark. Brewer Tre immediately responded with two back-to-back threes to put the Bravehearts back up 32-31. Bravehearts took an 8-point lead to end the half when Derek Aw hit a three with 27 seconds left. The game would go into the half-time break at 50-42 Bravehearts.

A Marshall Tyrone (203-C-92, college: Colorado St.-Pueblo) dunk on the fast break would give the Bravehearts lead of the game 59-44 with 6 minutes and 53 seconds. But Burrage Kannon would start to catch fire after drawing a foul on Marshall Tyrone on a layup. That was the start of his 22-point 3rd quarter outburst. He would hit a total of 5 threes in the third quarter alone, erasing the Bravehearts lead to single-digits in less than two minutes. Brewer Tre would pick Sze Tuan Teo's pocket and score on a fast-break layup to put the Bravehearts back up 71-66. But Kannon would hit a dagger three before the 3rd quarter break to reduce the Braveheart's lead to 2, ending the quarter 71-69 Bravehearts.

The fourth quarter would be a game of runs. Victor Jones hit a three at Falcon's first possession to put the Falcons Basketball up 72-71 since the second quarter, and starting a 14-2 run. Capitalising on Bravehearts' miss baskets, Wei Xiang Chen of the Falcons Basketball would hit a circus layup shot to give the Falcons Basketball their biggest lead of the game 83-73 with 6 minutes and 37 seconds to go. After a timeout by the Bravehearts, Gary Yeo would draw a foul and one on Falcon's Gaddafi to slice the lead down to 8. Marshall Tyrone would then check back into the game and hit a layup, then Tyson Lawrence (193-G-88, college: CS San Bernar.)'s jumper broke the Bravehearts back to within 3, 82-85 with 3 minutes and 55 seconds to go. Gary Yeo would split a pair of free throws, then Brewer Tre who force a turnover on Burrage, picking his pocket and a layup to give the Bravehearts back the lead 88-87 with 2 minutes remaining.

It was all Bravehearts from that moment on. Between some crucial stops, Marshall Tyrone would hit a bankshot, Tyson Lawrence split a pair of free throws, then Brewer Tre to deflect Ding Loon's inbound pass for the easy layup to put the Bravehearts up for good.

Brewer finished the game with 30 points, 6 rebounds and 4 steals. Tyson Lawrence had 30 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists, while Marshall Tyrone finished with 20 points, 15 rebounds and 2 blocks.

Said Brewer after the game, "We knew going into the game we would have a tough one. We didn't expect it to be a walk in the park. We knew all we had to do was stick to our game plan from Coach Tan and the rest would handle itself. We got big stops when we needed them and forced them to play through one person. Gary and Derek were big for us today. On to the Final 4!"

With this win, the Bravehearts are now atop Group B and will face GHUB in the semi-finals, leaving the Falcons Basketball to take on Jeffers Kyle (207-C-85, college: Oregon St.) and the Singapore Supras, the winner of Group A.
