Tyler Sealy wins London Foot Locker Down Town Throw Down Event
Tyler Sealy Thunder U18’s and Harris Academy had a great win this evening for himself and the club at the Foot Locker Down Town Throw Down Event held at the ThunderDome. Each player had to shoot 15 basketballs from 3 positions around the 3 point line in just 45 secs. He took the lead about 2/3rds of the way through the event and it looked like he was on course to win with 9 baskets to his credit. In the last minutes Jermaine – Greenwich Titans matched his score which forced them into a tense but exciting shoot out. Tyler won the draw and chose Jermaine to step up first. Jermaine scored 4 of his 15 shots. This left Tyler with it all to do, however he kept his cool and it paid off , giving him a score of 5 with a shot spare. Well done Tyler all that hard work paid off when you needed it too.
