Steve In A China Shop

Steve (CC) was looking to go ham tonight and he was doing that in the paint until he started running people over, three quick fouls had him sitting for the rest of the half.  After he sat, Cowboys settled for unruly 1v1 shots that weren’t falling. SPK found themselves up one at the intermission and decided to crank it up in the second. Their mid-range jumpers were falling which put them up 10. The outcome seemed like a foregone conclusion but the no energy, non-shot making Cowboys were awaken by Andrew (CC). His 9 straights points helped cut their deficit to only 4 with minutes to go. Miles (SPK) said no way Jose as he went on a run of his own, a 3-ball corner pocket and a beautiful majestic eurostep that put the squad up by nine to seal the win. Tip: Tell Steve that those All-Madden turbo hit-stick charges aren’t fouls in another sport.

Tale of the Tape: Miles goes the extra mile for the SPK win.

1st 2nd Final
Immortals 61 - 61
Stud Muffins 30 - 30

Half Baked

Stud Muffins found themselves with only four player tonight, against some teams you’ll still have a shot but because the almighty Immortals were their opponent, they got pulverized. As predicted, Studs put up a great effort but it was nowhere near enough for the win. Demetrius' (I) 7 threes beat Studs into a halftime submission. Tip: ....

Tale of the Tape: The muffins were halfway cooked.

Team PwC 15 25 40
Space City Dream Team 33 14 47

SUB! I Can't Breathe!

Space City was cruising in the first half with the help of Foni (SC) and Jacoby (SC) who combined for 16 points and 19 boards. Down 18 at the break, Team PwC cranked it up, specifically, Mike ‘n Mike, Mike N with back-to-back bombs and Mike C with steals and tough finishes at the rim. Their play and Space City’s rushing helped get them within four but the missed free throws in crunch time killed all their momentum. Space City gets the win and kudos to Jacoby on the dunk attempt, somebody check his shoes! Tip: Limit the turnovers PwC and this game would’ve been yours.

Tale of the Tape: Space City Dream Team go EY for the win. (Please tell me you get it….JEEZ!)
