A match up of two very talented teams took place Monday night between the Flint Tropics and the Young Kings.
The Young Kings came into the game 0-2, but had played well against tough opponents in Team Moose and Shocker City. The Flint Tropics came in undefeated and they showed tonight why they should be considered as one of the top teams in the league.
Mike Bozzuto could not miss from three point range. He hit all of his threes in the first quarter, helping the Flint Tropics to jump out a 24-9 lead. Bozzuto totaled six threes for the game, with 24 total points and nine rebounds. Mike Druan added 19 points and six boards, as well.
“I thought we played a lot of good defense and that’s what got us good looks,” said ‘ Dom Migliaro. “Bozzuto couldn’t miss today and that got us flowing offensively finally. We had a good start to the game and that’s what got us the W”.
The Young Kings held tough throughout, with Deston Simmons and Myles Raymond both tallying 15 points. The Young Kings tried to keep it close and actually outscored the Flint Tropics 18-15 in the third quarter, but the early lead proved to be insurmountable and the Flint Tropics came away with the 87-53 victory.
“If we get it rolling, we are the team to beat” said Bozzuto. as they prepare to face Sportslook after the two week holiday layoff.
