Shadkami stars as Blues capture Bronze in Taiwan

Toronto 94, Chien Hsin Tech 89... Before another overflow crowd of better than 5,000, 6’0″ Evan Shadkami had 28 points and clinched the game late with 4 clutch free throws as U of T captured the Bronze medal in Taiwan.  CHU is the second local team in the tournament out of Taoyuan City, Taiwan.

Blues also got a break-out game from 6’3″ freshman Inaki Alvarez who had 17 points and 5 assists in 21 minutes, helping run Blues efficient offense.  Toronto played a strong road game, shooting 83% from the free throw line and turning it over just 7 times the entire game.

6’3″ Nic Paradina added 18 points on a very tidy 8-12 shooting from the floor including a pair of threes, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the Blues in a tight game that Blues led by 5 at the half.  6’8″ Daniel Johanssen had 12 points and 3 boards in 28 minutes.

Shadkami added 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals while going 6 for 16 from downtown and was named a tournament all-star.

Blues now return home to get set to face Duke Blue Devils in about four weeks.
