The Eagles played two more tough games today to finish the tournament. After a slow start against Santa Teresinha the boys got it together and played a competitive second half but were unable to make up the difference from the first half. On the game against EAB even though our team was undersized we did a great job playing defense and holding the Bulls back. At half-time the score was practically tied, but the Eagles got into some foul trouble and the Bulls were able to pull out the win at the end.
I'm very proud of how we played as a team, always being positive and supporting one another. This team showed great sportsmanship, heart and courage as they faced some of the best teams in Brasilia this weekend. Congratulations to all players for your success in this tournament. Andrew (our top scorer), Goro (most steals), Letsie (best defensive player), Kwame (our main scorer from the left side - see video), Frizald (excellent drives to the hoop), Alex (excellent as center), Adnan (great in movement and assists), Wilko (great ball handling and passing around the perimeter - he also won every jump ball), Rowen (good job playing defense up top and down low). Way to go Eagles!
