Gauchos fall to Team Philly

READING, PA - The End of Summer Classic at Albright College marks the end of AAU season for quite a few NY teams.

It also gives College coaches one last opportunity to check out talent and make a final impact on players with their attendance. In a game that contained multiple comebacks, the Choz would finally succumb to resilient Team Philly squad 65-57.

Team Philly jumped out the box 19-4 early in the first half before 6'7" Arthur Edwards (10 points) from St. Thomas More would spark a Gauchos comeback, cutting Team Philly's lead to 28-20 with 3:12 on the clock

Staving off the Gauchos surge that included buckets by Dennis Green (16 points) and a 3-pointer by Jevon Thomas (16 points) with 22 seconds left, Team Philly take a 38-26 lead into the second half.

Good inside-out play by 6'7" Brandon Taylor (13 points) would extend Team Philly's lead to 42-28 but another comeback by the Choz would once again slice into the lead.

Buckets by Edwards and Thomas would cut Team Philly's lead down to a minuscule 49-47 with 5:40 left in regulation.

5'9" Maurice Watson (19 points) from Boys Latin HS would expand, Team Philly advantage back to seven point in transition in a about a minute and back up to 58-49 with 2:54 left in regulation.

Out of time out and with Thomas saddled with 5 fouls, the Choz still manages to make one last run. A bucket by the recent St. John's de-commit pulled the Gauchos to within 2 points with a minute remaining.

Unfortunately for the Choz, Watson would lead a 6-2 Team Philly run to close the curtain in the Bronx, NY squad.
