Fall 2016 Season Wrap-up - Championship Games and League Top Scorers!


Elite/A Division


Repeat Offenders took down the Mighty Men in a thriller game that was closer than the final score suggests! Tim Stanos hit the early 3's to set the tone, and Jamal (League MVP) took it from there with 14 big points!



MVP Jamal!

Adept over Squires!

The season was a bit of a roller-coaster, as competing leagues and priorities caused our numbers to vacillate between 5-12 people per game. All season, though, we were anchored by the outstanding play of Pan Wang and Lampros Tsontzos, both former college basketball players and current beasts. 
The finals mirrored the ups and down of the season in a way - we were down nine at half and couldn't seem to buy a bucket on offense.  But when we needed them, Pan and Lampros came up big and scored nearly all of our late second-half points together.  Kevin Wang and Daniel Cooper were outstanding all game, and Tim Chang came up with a big block to seal the game in the last few seconds.  
While there were ups and downs all season, we were fortunate to end on a high point this season.

MVP Albert!

Squirrely Flyers put together a strong second season in the league.  Backed by a rapid-fire offense and consistent defense, the eight returning Flyers ended up with an eerily similar road to the finals as they followed during their inaugural season.  Finishing with a 6-1 regular season, with the only loss coming during inter-divisional play, they secured the top seed and a first round bye.  
 The semi-final game proved once again to challenge Squirrely Flyers' resolve.  Facing a surging Dealers team, the Flyers found themselves trailing early and down by 15 at the half.  The second half brought little relief for the Flyers, as the Dealers held ground and led by 10 points with 2 minutes remaining.  Squirrely Flyers began intentionally fouling to extend the game.  Dealers hit most of their free throws, but the Flyers, anchored by five 3-pointers by Gene, started chipping away at the lead.  Trailing by one point with 0.6 seconds remaining, Rob was able to get a quick shot off from the corner ahead of the buzzer for the improbable comeback and a 1-point Squirrely Flyers win.
 During a rematch of the spring season finals, Squirrely Flyers and Bucket List once again faced off.  In a hard fought game by both teams, Squirrely Flyers led most of the way and closed out the season with a solid win.  Congratulations to Gene for his selection as MVP based on his consistent outside shooting threat and clutch scoring in the playoffs.  Squirrely Flyers look forward to the winter season and continued play against quality opponents.
 

MVP Eugene!
