The Tri-City Thunder Blue Elite squad ventured to Livermore for the 3/16 tournament held by the WCBA. The powerful Thunder squad opened the day matched with the Palo Alto Warriors. The Thunder rolled out to a 34-0 lead, before finishing the game with a 79-11 win. Akshay Aravindan paced the Thunder with 20 points, while Monty San Juan added 12 and Atmar Mundu chipped in 11. For Game two of the day, the Thunder were originally due to battle the Alameda Vipers, however the Vipers requested a change of schedule so they would not have to face our team. It probably saved them some embarrassment as this Thunder Blue squad would have rolled right over them for an easy win. Instead, the Thunder team was forced to play their brothers, the Thunder White squad. This proved to be a better test, as the White squad battled hard and gave the Blue team their toughest match-up of the day. In the end, Blue would prevail by a 73-40 margin with Aravindan once more tallying 20 points, and Kyle Pruhsmeier adding 15. For the final game of the day, the Thunder would face what was expected to be a championship match-up with the Crossover squad from Sacramento. It proved to be no test at all. Once again the Thunder started strong and built a 33-13 halftime advantage, before closing out the day with a dominating 63-23 win. With the 3-0 day, Thunder Blue claimed another championship on the season, and now looks ahead to playing some of the West Coast titans in the West Coast Swing event to close out March.

  1. The Alameda Vipers EMBARRASSED YOUR BLUE TEAM and your WHITE team 3/4 times we've played you. Who encourages players to get into fights? Oh thats right, uneducated low class parents. You are a classless team filled with sore losers. You cheated to win one of the four games when we played you. PLEASE come play us again, we will be delighted to embarrass YOU.
