Every game, the team has started off slow. No different in this one as the team finished 1st quarter down. In the 2nd quarter, after a few lineup changes, the team would have it's best defensive quarter, limiting Don Pedro to 6 points.
Winning the rebound battle allowed Bermuda to score in transition and they would eventually take the lead back by halftime 33 – 28.
With the addition of youth mixing with the veterans, consistency and team chemistry are important, but this is what the development tour is about. Bermuda would make a few defensive stops but then allow their other opponent to go on significant offensive runs which kept the score close.
Mykal Glasgow continued to be a scoring threat, not settling for perimeter shots, on drives to the basket. Eric Lambert was a welcome surprise with his individual defensive effort in the second half.
Sullivan Phillips in his role as a player-coach sat most of the second half. However, he came into the game with about 3 minutes left and Bermuda down by 3 and turned the deficit into a 6-point lead.
Bermuda would eventually win 70 – 66.
Bermuda coach Mackenzie summarized the game mirrored the previous game where the game was won, but the team could've played a lot better.
Glasgow and Caelin Peters led Bermuda in scoring with 15 points each, while Adam McDonald added 11 points.
