THUNDER BLUE - NBBA SPRING INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT - 4/27

The Thunder Blue Elite U13 squad travelled to Marin to take part in the NBBA Spring Invitational event. The Thunder would be facing a trio of ranked foes, with only seven players and missing several key big men, so the challenge would be immense. In game one, the Thunder matched up with the Cool Kids from Oakland. In the past, the Cool Kids would have the Thunder's number, but this time around it was the Thunder who would hold the advantage. In the game, the Thunder would lead from start to finish, however, due to injury and foul trouble, they would see an 11 point lead slowly erode and hold on for a thrilling 48-47 victory. Hekili Jordan and Richard Pabalate led the way with 10 points apiece. Game two of the day was a physical affair that saw the powerful One Team One Dream squad from Tracy dominate on the interior en route to a 46-32 victory. This was a poorly-officiated game that let things spiral out of control and the Thunder performed poorly overall in the loss. Again, the short bench hurt the squad as two starters would foul out and the Thunder lacked the size and firepower to compete. Ramon Barragan led the Thunder with 14 points in a lackluster defeat. The final game of the day had the Thunder matched with the tournament host NBBA (SMITH), the third ranked team in Nor Cal. This was a competitive game for the most part, but the Thunder could never quite get over the hump every time to closed the gap and would lose in the end 57-46. Hekili Jordan led the Thunder scorers with 11, while Tyler Lynch added 10 and Atmar Mundu 9.
