WHIS, Houston -- GRC (G) Ed Tan (team-high 19 pts) has been on a tear lately almost single-handedly leading his team to a 4-2 start. However, if they want to win down the road, the rest of the Fellowship need to step up, and they did not disappoint this week.
Tan got GRC off to a hot start making a couple 3FGs early on. He also found teammate GRC (F) Kevin Ma for several easy shots and racked up all 5 of his asts in the 1st half. HSP (F) Michael Lu's struggles continued as HSP was without (C) Aaron Tsai (game-high 25 pts) for the beginning of the game. GRC's defense keyed in on Lu and made the rest of HSP try and beat them. Unfortunately, the rest of HSP seemed to suffer the same struggles as Lu.
It wasn't until Tsai showed up when HSP finally showed some life. However, it may have been a little too late. Despite shooting well and penetrating the defense, Tsai couldn't bring the Spotlighters back from their deficit, and this was all thanks to the strong play of GRC's role players.
GRC (G) David Hong (12 pts) continued his strong shooting and provided some much needed support since teammate (F) Brandon Kang went down with an injury. GRC (C) Jaewon Hong (game-high 13 rebs) has been a workhorse on the glass and continued to perform well. For once, Tan did not have to shoulder the load. -- Stan Van Ghandi
