Octane Infinity 57, HGI 48

13 10 2008

Chris TurmanWinning season, fellas!  Adam came out to support the team, and we unveiled our new uniforms to a great win!  I’m not washing mine until we lose again (but don’t worry, I will -  from Lisa), so let’s go 7-0 for Fall season #2 and make me the stinky man.

The better team won last night, and we had a nice even game from everyone.  Once again Chris and David carried the rebounding load with 24 total boards.  David was more active on his shooting, taking 11 shots and keeping his temper under control as he said he would.  Mike focused on his 2-point shooting and ended up with a FANTASTIC 50%!!!!  He still managed to hoist up 12 3′s and made five of them.  John was Mr. Free Throw, hitting six of seven for 86%.  The game’s highlight was Marcus getting his free throw attempts with no time on the clock, and actually hitting the backboard!  HGI made a little come back at the end of the game, but we had it well in hand and it was a good end for our most successful season ever.  Way to go Octane!

Octane Infinity 49, Corbett Fish House 55

6 10 2008

Scott NelsonThe Octane Infinity had a chance to redeem themselves against Corbett Fish House last Monday, October 6, 2008 at The Courts in Beaverton, OR. In their previous matchup, Corbett Fish House decisively defeated the Octane Infinity by 18 points.

The Octane Infinity gave a solid effort, working hard on defense which resulted in nine team steals. The score was close throughout the game and was eventually determined at the free throw line.

“They were pretty patient, passed the ball around to the open guy and then swished their open 3′s,” said Edwin Tanedo. “We were close throughout the game and Mike admitted that they locked down on him and there wasn’t much he could do shooting-wise.”

Chris Turman led the team with 14 points, eight rebounds, and three steals. Mike R. contributed 11 points while Tanedo chipped in nine points.

“We have a chance next week to end our season on the winning end, so I’m looking forward to next Monday,” added Tanedo. “And we did some good things tonight, definitely a lot better than the last time we played them!”

The Octane Infinity were without guard Adam Crane and forward John Le.

Octane Infinity 72, Cascade Microtech 27

29 09 2008

Scott NelsonThe Octane Infinity would never have expected a lopsided victory against Cascade Microtech at The Courts in Beaverton, OR, last Monday, September 29, 2008.

Tenacious defense and high percentage shooting provided the Octane Infinity a 34-17 lead at the half. But the halftime break did not cool off the Octane Infinity as they continued to dominate the game and even limiting Cascade Microtech to 10 points in the second half.

“I realized after that game that if there is a blow out for either side just feels like a Saturday Ballys day,” remarked Mike R. “We are loose and free, hence the turnovers but it is fun.  The most satisfying wins are the close ones.”

Mike R. led the Octane Infinity in scoring with 22 points, shooting 9-of-20 from the field, grabbing six rebounds and snatching three steals. Chris Turman and David Camp both managed to achieve double-doubles for the night with Turman getting 16 points and 16 rebounds and Camp notching 12 points and 19 rebounds.

“One of the fun things about that game is that we played (and almost always play) very well together,” commented Turman. “We definitely struggle when we go up against a tall D-league team when they’re our second of a double-header, but we tend to challenge almost everyone we play.”

Octane Infinity 62, Al’s Gators 68

22 09 2008

The Octane Infinity played against Al’s Gators last Monday, September 22, 2008, at The Courts in Beaverton, OR. The Octane Infinity exploded early in the first half and built a huge lead over Al’s Gators. But Al’s Gators kept chipping away at the lead and by halftime, they cut the lead down to five. Unfortunately for the Octane Infinity, Chris Turman had to leave the game due to a prior commitment and did not play the second half. Al’s Gators took full advantage and rallied to take the lead with minutes left in the game. In the end, Al’s Gators just passed around to milk the clock as they won, 68-62.

“Close game last night, I blame it on Chris because look at his line! 2/8, 2 rebounds, 1 block? Come on man, you gotta be more selfish!!! Taking only 8 shots, only getting 2 boards? What were you doing?” questioned Edwin Tanedo. “It’s as if you only decided to play one half and then bail out on us. Were you trying to be like Kobe? Show us a lesson?”

Mike R. led the Octane Infinity in scoring with 28 points, hitting eight three-point shots for the night. David Camp contributed 10 points and eight rebounds, and Edwin Tanedo added 10 points.

“I should be back in full selfish greedy-ass form next week,” warned Chris Turman. “Good luck prying the ball out of my hands, fellas!”

Octane Infinity 91, Mondays Indis 63

15 09 2008

Things were just clicking for the Octane Infinity against the Monday Indis at The Courts in Beaverton, OR, last Monday, September 15, 2008. Between scoring the most points and committing the least turnovers in a single game in their team history, the Octane Infinity were just too much to handle for the Monday Indis.

The Octane Infinity built up a 13-point lead by half time. Then despite David Camp’s mini-ejection in the second half, the Octane Infinity still managed to increase their lead to 28 points, overwhelming the Monday Indis, 91-63.

“My favorite of the night was Scott’s steal and drive to the hoop,” recalled David Camp. “Highlight material!”

Chris Turman had a great all-around game of 18 points, 16 rebounds, six assists, four blocks, and two steals. Mike R. lead the team in scoring with 30 points, shooting 6-of-12 from outside the three-point line. John Le and Jonas Reyes both added 14 points each.

“While we had the game early on, we really demoralized our opponents with Jonas’s fast break 2′s, Mike’s open 3′s, and John stroking too from the outside enroute to 4/6 from beyond the arc,” stated Edwin Tanedo. “This is John’s last game for this season, so nice way to go out big fella, the Bomb!”

8 09 2008

However, Coordination Optional converted some unbelievable three point shots, holding off the Octane Infinity, 61-53.

“Once again, as in our previous game with Coordinational Optional, the referees swallowed their whistles on a lot of fouls,” remarked Edwin Tanedo.

Mike R. led the Octane Infinity in scoring with 15 points while Edwin Tanedo and Jonas Reyes contributed 10 points each.
