THE THUNDERBIRDS COMPLETE THE SAN JOSE CITY COLLEGE TIP OFF TOURNAMENT 1-2
The Thunderbirds have completed there first 3 games at the San Jose City College Tip Off Tournament. The Thunderbirds won there opener against the Foothill College Owls ranked #3 in the north and 6th in the state by the score of THUNDERBIRDS 79 Foothill 62.
In round 2 the Thunderbirds took on the host San Jose City College Jaguars and in a ugly game and a horrible free throw shooting performance of 22/40 from ft line the Thunderbirds came up short by 5 points. San Jose 64 THUNDERBIRDS 59.
In round 3 the consolation championship the Thunderbirds took on the Lassen College and came up 3 points short in overtime final score Lassen 90 THUNDERBIRDS 87.
What can be taken from the past 3 games is that the THUNDERBIRDS are extremely talented but are in the process of developing team cohesion. Increased focused on free throw shooting, boxing out and overall team shot selection discipline throughout each game will produce the success the THUNDERBIRDS are looking for in the near future.
