Omar Samhan showed he could multi-task, playing effective basketball while carrying on running conversations with anyone – refs, spectators, opposing players, an ESPN camera man as he walked off the court at half with Gale Force leading by 25 – as Gael Force rolled to a 95-48 win in the second round of The Basketball Tournament.
The Basketball Tournament organizers added a new wrinkle to their winner-take-all, $2 million event with the Elam Ending. Under the Elam rules, at the first dead ball with under 4 minutes remaining, seven points is added to the leading team’s score to set a target score. In the case of sixth-seeded Few Good Men and No. 11 Team Utah on Friday night, the score was tied at 77 so the target became 84.
Gael Force never trailed, led by double digits after Ian O’Leary’s dunk with 4:38 left in the opening quarter and cruised to an 82-54 win over Air Force Bomb Squad in the TBT opener at Lewis and Clark High School.
The Basketball Tournament schedule-makers appear to have a keen sense of TBT’s short history as well as the best rivalry in the West Coast Conference. Sixth-seeded Few Good Men, which includes six former Zags, opens the winner-take-all, $2 million tournament against No. 11 Team Utah at approximately 7 p.m. in the Hoopfest pod at Lewis and Clark High.
Few Good Men picked up a sixth seed and a first-round matchup with No. 11 Team Utah in The Basketball Tournament’s Hoopfest pod.
Few Good Men, comprised of former Zags and probably a few others who played at schools in the region, will be joined by Gael Force (featuring Saint Mary’s alums), Team Utah (Ute alums) and TBTBombSquad (Air Force alums).
