For their outstanding performances, each of them earned a $50 Tribe gift certificate courtesy of the league’s corporate sponsor, Atkins Kroll Saipan.

Fidelino’s six three-pointers allowed The Game Elite to deflate the AK Toyota Wheeler by 10 points, 86-76.

Currently, Schmidt is leading the league in assists per game while Fidelino is leading in rebounds per game.
