Urban ASAK wins thrilling opener vs. UA Team Speed 58-56 in Vegas

July 26, 2018

Less than two hours after getting off the plane from Austin to Las Vegas, Urban ASAK stepped on the court to take on Under Armour Team Speed.

ASAK jumped out to an early 5-2 lead, but fell behind for the majority of the next two quarters. When Team Speed tried to pull away, ASAK would go on a quick scoring run to get right back in the game.

With under a minute left to play, Shasirae Harvey settled into the corner and knocked down a three-pointer amidst solid contact from the defender, drawing the foul and eventually converting the and-one to give ASAK its first lead of the fourth quarter.

Team Speed had its chances with under 30 seconds left in the game to tie or even win, but Urban’s defense was relentless and ultimately Austin’s finest came away with a 58-56 victory.

Caleb Golden led all scorers with 22 points, converting four separate and-ones as he continued to draw contact and finish strong.

Urban ASAK will get some much needed rest, then play again tomorrow night at 8:15 p.m. against Nike EYBL Mac Irvin Fire out of Chicago.
