Week 03: Game Previews

Aug 5, 2018
Vancouver Basketball Pro-Am

Royals vs Thunderbirds

The Royals have a tough task ahead as they look for their first win of the season against the Thunderbirds. Josiah Mastandrea has led the Royals in the first two weeks, but he will need help from his teammates if they want to take down the undefeated Thunderbirds. With their 2-0 record, it’s easy to choose the Thunderbirds as an early favourite for the Championship. With newcomers Jadon Cohee and Manroop Clair lighting it up from outside and Patrick Simon and Grant Shephard pouring in buckets from inside, they will be tough to be beat. The Royals and Thunderbirds will tip-off at 7:00pm.

Academy vs West Coast

Academy is hungry for their first win of the season in Week 03 and they will have their chance against West Coast. Academy will look to Diego Kapelan to lead the charge but will need contributions from the likes of Bret Macdonald and Colin Plumb if they want to be successful. West Coast is coming off a commanding victory over the Blues in Week 02 where their defense held the Blues to just 42 points. Academy and West Coast tip-off at 8:00pm.

Falcons vs Blues

The Falcons will look to continue their winning ways against the Blues in Week 03. With Brody Greig pushing the tempo and support from Elliot Mason, Domiyck Coward and Garrett Ling Lee, the Falcons will be a tough competitor everynight. The Blues are still looking for their first win of the season and will need big nights from veteran leaders Hassan Phills and Denver Sparks-Guest if they want to take down the 2-0 Falcons. Catch the Falcons and Blues play at 9:00pm.

Team XV vs Vikes

Team XV is looking to continue their win streak against the Vikes in Week 03. With Vick Toor and Sukhman Sandhu leading their offence, and teammates knocking down 3’s, Team XV can shoot their opponent out of the game on any given night. The Vikes are looking to bounce back after a Week 02 loss against the Falcons. Al Macintosh as carried lots of the offensive load in the first two weeks, can the other Vikes step up to power their team to victory? Team XV and the Vikes will play at 10:00pm.
