Seoul American, Humphrey victorious in basketball
On Korea’s hardwood Friday night, Seoul American’s boys remained unbeaten at 9-0, but it wasn’t easy as the Falcons outlasted Yongsan International-Seoul 47-40 on the Guardians’ home court.
“Worst game of the season,” Falcons coach Steve Boyd said. “But you need a few of those. Any time you shoot 27 percent, you’re not doing well. We’re a far better shooting team than that.”
Further south at Osan Air Base, the Humphreys boys got the second win in the program’s young history, 76-68. The Blackhawks are comprised mostly of players who came over from Osan when Humphreys opened, so it had the look of an Osan vs. Osan game.
Though Humphreys’ girls fell by five points at Osan, Blackhawks coach Ashley Gooch was pleased with her players’ effort. “Best my team has played this season,” she said. The Blackhawks held Cougars scoring star Andrea Carandang to nine points.
