BMaze faced a monster task Sunday morning with the fearsome Houston Defenders lining up across the sideline.  Clad in yellow, the Houston Defenders brought a daunting mix of quickness and toughness.  Were the BMaze Elite 17u men up to the task?

The game ended 74-68 with BMaze Elite on top. 

Tamba Island

The Defenders fearlessly attacked the BMaze big and most of the BMaze team defended away from the basket.  The three main-court officials really let the guys bang and Tamba tried to use his body to defend.  Unfortunately, BMaze left him on an island too many times and the Defenders capitalized. Edwards did dig down a couple times and it mattered.  Not often enough the BMaze men collapsed and helped Tamba. 

The Attack

BMaze ran much of its offense through BJ Edwards and Quante Berry.  The slashing guards found some gaps, but the help defense in the first half was tremendous from the spunky Houston Defenders.  Just because Berry beat his first man he still found plenty of resistance in the lane.  The Defenders lived up to their name and then some. 

BMaze’s favored lineup was:

C Handje Tamba Handje Tamba 7'0" | C Knoxville Catholic | 2022 State TN
F Braeden Ilic
