[CCU BASKETBALL] Wake Up Call

After a long week, the guys had their second game this Saturday. It was an early morning game at 9:00a. It seemed like we all needed a wake up call. I think I missed a few baskets in my scorebook so if you think you made more than I wrote, sorry about that!

Sunset Church started strong out of the gate with a quick 5-0 lead. Our guys were able to catch up with Tony Wong getting an offensive rebound and putting it in the hole and then later with a basket AND 1. Jacky Guan hit a 3 point shot and we were all hoping for another big game from him. Unfortunately though, he and Yulin Deng got into early foul trouble.

In the first half, SFEFC kept pace with Sunset for the most part, but then Sunset started pulling ahead. Jason Liao kept it closer at the half by hitting two 3-point shots in row within the last minute. The score at halftime: 20-27. The second half Sunset came on strong and led the whole way, defeating SFEFC 30-43.

Even in defeat, Jason Liao had a terrific game with 13 points (two 3-point shots, 1 free throw) along with 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal. Tony Wong played hard and scored 6 points (2 free throws), 6 rebounds and 1 steal. Jacky Guan was quiet this game with 3 points, 1 rebound and 1 assist. Yulin Deng had 2 points and 3 rebounds. Jonathan Ching and Tao Huang both had 2 points, 2 rebounds. Back from school, Calvin Ho contributed 2 points. Emmu Zhao had 1 steal and Jason Chen had 1 rebound.

This is only the second game though and the guys played hard. We know that SFEFC can learn and adjust and come on strong next week. We could always use more fan support! Their next game is Saturday June 18th at 11:00a at Washington High School.
