For three straight meetings, the SOUTHORN Tigers started very quickly against the M.I.B. but also for the third time when the two teams meet, the M.I.B. come back strongly in the second half, and this time they were even closer. Still, the SOUTHORN Tigers were relieved as they saw Leo Chow��s potential game winning shot fall short as time expired. When M.I.B. is only down by two with only seconds left in the game, Leo Chow stole the ball from Tigers captain Benny Wong as he grab an in-bound pass and run beyond the arc for a three-point shot. The M.I.B. could have had their second win of this season should this shot gets in. Tigers forward Terence Chan made a shot off the glass, guard Benny Wong made two three-pointers in the first period as the team lead 11-4 entering the second period. Both teams were shooting terribly in the second period, when the Tigers shot 2 on 15, and M.I.B. shot only 1 on 12 from the field. Benny Wong did not shoot but had two steals in this period. M.I.B. forward-centre Adrian Chou made three free throws and teammate Jefferson Tong scored two points in the period and reduce the deficit to 6 points at the half time break. Missing all shots in the first half, Tigers new guard William Leung started the scoring on his own, scored all the team��s first eight points in the 3rd period. he swished two treys and a short jumper, followed by two jumpers from teammate Wilson Chow to conclude all points in the 3rd period. In the period, Jefferson Tong had 5 points including one trey but he found limited help on the offensive. However, the M.I.B. did not think the game is over, while the Tigers may. The stamina of the Tigers looked to decrease sharply and none of them looked like they could make shots, missed all nine attempts from the filed. All the four points were from the free throw line, when they made only 4 on 14 Tigers Wai Chun Wong grabbed all his three offensive boards in the final period and along with a steal and two fouls stopping the opponent��s fast-break. Tigers forward Terence Chan had 15 rebounds but he made only one field goal. He scored all his three points in the first period, missed all 9 attempts from then. Teammate Benny Wong scored 6 points made half of the shots but scored only one point from the free throw line in the second half. M.I.B. guard Leo made his first shot in the final period after nine missed attempts but scored nine points in the period by three treys. Jefferson Tong was fouled out in the final period. After a 4-point performance, he bounced back to gain his third career double-double with 10 points and 15 rebounds. Gilbert Fu attended the game but did not dress. He was not on the active roster. All Tigers had at least two turnovers, and the team has a total 24 TOs by eight players.
