SATURDAY ONLY TOURNAMENT 3/1 - TC THUNDER WHITE

The Thunder White 2014 AAU Season started off at Livermore against the Alameda Vipers. The Thunder showcased three new players to the team (Melvin, Ryan and Remy) and also added last season's Blue Team resident Koby, who now plays full-time for Thunder White. The team found themselves down by 13 with about four minutes left in the game and the defense clamped down resulting in three successive turnovers. The team capitalized with a deuce from Melvin and Alex draining back-to-back treys to trim the lead to five. The Vipers regrouped and were able to pull away in the end. Final score Vipers 49, Thunder 40. In the second game, the Thunder beat Napa Valley Warriors by slimmest of margins, a 36-35 win. EJ and Melvin paced the team with 8 points apiece. Jordan had key steals during the win. The kids seemed to be getting comfortable with each other as they logged tournament game minutes playing together. Against Team Payton Elite, the Thunder showed why this year maybe the best yet for this very young team. They were able to pull off uncontested three point shots multiple times, scored points off second chance offensive rebounds, forced turnovers via relentless defense and were able to push the ball at will. Jerome scored 10 points, five of those points came from the stripe as the desperate Payton Elite resorted to fouling just to get the ball back. EJ and Ryan equaled Jerome's scoring output, scoring 10 points each. Jordan had 8 points in addition to his critical steals off Payton Elite's speedy guards.
