Sport Stars reports that given their own chance to shine, NorCal’s Asian-American Hoopers made the most of their First All-Star event.
Kobe Ordonio hit his fifth 3-pointer of the game and the NorCal Asian Senior All-Stars bench shot up in excitement while the better-than-average crowd at Cal State University East Bay oohed.
Ordonio had just tied the inaugural NorCal Asian-American All-Star Game at 112-112 with 2:37 left to play against the Asian Undergrad All-Stars. It was part of a spirited comeback by the Seniors, who trailed by at least 10 multiple times during the final period.
