SIS’ Ku Nishi­mura maintained a controlled pace for his team as the quick guard prevented potential turnovers. Ken Song, another asset for SIS, contributed 5 points in the first half to give his team a one-point lead against Da’ok, 12-11.

Despite a tough quarter for Da’ok, Jordan Encabo made an impact, scoring 5 points in the first 12 minutes of play. He showcased a variety of skills on the floor as he kept Da’ok in the game. Encabo also contributed defensively to prevent SIS from expanding its gap.

SIS’ Robbie Schorr and Ku Nishimaru opened the second half with 11 points coupled with a remarkable defense that applied pressure on Da’ok.

Both teams then exchanged baskets, but Nishimaru and Schorr were simply unstoppable. SIS won, 31-19.

MHS 3 beats MHS JV

The undersized MHS 3 bested the MHS JV team whose players, for their part, showed heart and determination.

Height didn’t matter as the MHS 3 players stood their ground and showcased quick plays. They made every stop count and converted basket after basket to give their team the lead in the first half, 16-14.

In the second half, Raven Francisco of MHS 3 scored a game high of 10 points to lead his team to a 25-22 victory.

Five other games were played Tuesday night. KHS JV slipped past MHS Varsity 25-22; MCS Varsity trounced KHS3 38-18; SSHS overpowered KHS Varsity 34-19; and Agape overwhelmed MCS 3.
