TEAM SELECT 4TH ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE DAY INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT - TC THUNDER BLUE

The Thunder Blue squad travelled to Brentwood for the 4th Annual Independence Day Invitational hosted by Team Select. Over the course of two days, the Thunder boys would have a good showing by going 3-1 and collecting a second-place finish. The Thunder opened the tourney with a dominant 59-40 victory over the SJ Falcon, led by Hekili Jordan's 18 points. Koby Silva chipped in 10 in the win. In game two, the Thunder would battle an old rival the SV Stars Blue. Despite a shaky start that saw the Thunder fall behind by 9 points, the team reeled off a 14-0 run and would lead steadily throughout in a closely contested game. In the end, the Thunder prevailed with a 45-37 win behind Hekili Jordan's 21 points. Ramon Barragan added 8 as the Thunder finished the day 2-0. With the win, the Thunder would open the next day in what basically amounted to a championship game with the home team, Team Select. The game started off close in the early minutes, but an injury to Tyler Lynch and foul trouble, put the Thunder in a bad position and the team would go on to be soundly beaten 76-39 in a disappointing effort. Devonte Johson and Hekili Jordan each had 11 in the loss, while Ramon Barragan finished with 10. Despite the loss, the Thunder had one more game to close out the tourney and rebounded with a 72-44 blowout of the BFS Blackout. Atmar Mundu led all scorers with 18, while Akshay Aravindan poured in 14. Overall, this was a successful tournament run for the Thunder boys and a good warm-up for the Cal State Games.
