Fogg Returns to MVP Form and Leads Overseas Elite back to Championship Game

Fogg had his best game of the tournament on Thursday night

Although Kyle Fogg is a two-time TBT MVP, he entered tonight’s semifinal game averaging only nine points on 33% shooting from the field in #TBT2018. Fortunately, he could rely on his co-stars DJ Kennedy and Errick McCollum to produce victories while he struggled to score.

Fogg snapped back into MVP form tonight. The Arizona product went off for 38 points in a convincing win over the Golden Eagles (Marquette) and punched Overseas Elite’s ticket to its fourth consecutive championship appearance. Fogg, who spent last year playing professionally in China, scored the first seven points of the contest and led the way to Overseas’ 26-4 start to the game.

The 28-year-old was well-aware of his sluggish play coming into the game. In his words, “I’ve been bumming it all tournament.” He credits McCollum with preparing him this past week for his scoring outburst tonight.

Overseas Elite now finds itself just one game away from yet another TBT title and the $2 million prize. If Fogg repeats what he did on Thursday, there’s no reason to think his team won’t be raising its fourth banner in as many years.

Hear what Fogg and head coach Marc Hughes had to say in the post-game press conference regarding Fogg’s breakout game.
