Killer Bees (3-0) vs Sharks (1-2)

 

Killer Bees are the team to beat this season after defeating a solid Fil-Act team last week. Sharks are starting to find chemistry as each player has started to find their roles on the team. They are finding more success as they develop teamwork skills on court.

 

The KB’s dynamic duo of Corson Maguire and Ryan Moore have been dominant this season. Maguire leads the league in scoring with 12.0 ppg and also leads in rebounds with 16.0 rpg, while Moore leads the league in assist with 2.5 apg.  Nathan Pitt has become a fan favourite and his ball handling skills are a must see for a kid his age.

 

Sharks had a tough game last week without the teams top two scorers Michael Pua and Isaiah Pua-Wise. However, this opened up opportunities for others to shine. Kymani Lue, who leads the team in assist, showed great leadership on the court and hopefully can get his fellow teammates to be more aggressive on offense.

 

Both teams will be hungry for the win and this has the makings of a potential finals match up. Game Tips-Off @ 2:30 over at Logos Fellowship Centre (33 Mallard Rd - 3rd floor)


 

Fil-Act (1-1) vs G-Men (1-2)

 

Fil-Act is a team of raw talent harnessed by the reigns of Coach Sigmund. Despite picking up their first L of the season against Killer Beez in Week 3, they are still a solid contender for the first ever Megacity Youth Championship. G-Men picked up their first W last week over a shorthanded Sharks team. They look to carry the momentum into this game and pick up back to back wins.

 

Fil-Act has been lead this season by the one two punch of Dante and Nathaniel who will have recruiters in a frenzy after this season. Christian C also has had a solid Winter 2018 season so far as he sits 2nd in scoring on the team w 8.0 ppg. If the Fil-Act big 3 have a solid game they will be tough to stop.

 

G-Men can do damage when they all are on the same page. Sometimes when you have too many leaders in one spot there is a moment of uncertainty of who should take lead. Once they understand that they all are be leaders and tap into that strength, I'm certain you'll see amazing things will happen in the gym. The treo of Jeremiah Cruz, Jordan and Noah Somoza have carried much of the defensive workload for the team. Kailin Alvir is leading G-Men with rebounding with 6.3 rpg and hopefully will be around to contribute in Week 5.

 

We expect the two teams will be aggressive on both ends of the floor in this contest and the team who controls the glass will emerge with a victory.  Game Tips-Off @ 2:30 over at Logos Fellowship Centre (33 Mallard Rd - 3rd floor)
