Team FOE Comes From Behind to Beat Sideline Cancer

By: TBT Staff


For the second straight day, Team FOE found themselves coming from behind to stay alive in TBT2017. Sideline Cancer shot 47.2% from the field (17-36) in the first half compared to just 37.8% (14-37) for Team FOE – but that only turned into a 40-38 lead for Sideline Cancer at halftime.

The shooting momentum switched sides in the second half, as Team FOE shot 55.2% from the field and Sideline Cancer went cold, shooting just 36.7%. FOE took the lead and didn’t look back – clinching a spot in the Super 16 with a 82-75 win.

It was a true team effort for FOE, with five players scoring in double figures. Vincent Simpson led the way with 15 points, Mario Little was right behind him with 14, Tyshawn Taylor dropped 13, Sean Evans added a dozen and Scott Rodgers chipped in 10. Aaron Brown was the high man for Sideline Cancer, putting up 21 points on 8-13 shooting.

FOE will be back in action on July 20 as they take on the top-seeded FCM Untouchables in Brooklyn
