The GaelNation guard put on a show Monday night

Scott Machado may have traded in his Team Fancy jersey for a GaelNation uniform in #TBT2018, but one thing has remained constant: the Iona alum can ball with anybody in the world. After averaging 13.7 ppg and 5 rpg in TBT 2017, Machado followed it up with 11.5 ppg, 6 rpg and 4.5 apg last summer, even while playing with arguably the deepest backcourt in the whole tournament. On Monday night, he showcased his skills on a different national stage. Along with Talladega Knights forward Samme Givens, Machado and Maccabi Haifa paid a trip to California for a preseason matchup with the Kings. Although Sacramento got the 132-100 win, Machado poured in 15 points on 6-10 shooting from the field and 3-5 from three. In addition, he dropped four dimes and grabbed two rebounds in 25 minutes of play. Different venue, same results.

Givens also had a solid game for Maccabi Haifa, adding six points and three rebounds in 22 minutes. Willy Workman, who played with Team Krossover in 2015, had two points and five rebounds. The team continues its NBA tour on Thursday when they take on the Clippers at the Staples Center.
