Pippen Ain't Easy 39  Cobert Parish 54

Easy Win for Cobert Parish

The difference in this one was 3-pointers. Cobert Parish was able to put it away racing out to an early lead on the back of some early 3s by Will. Michaud chipped in 9 points and 6 rebounds and juiced the teams offense with some nice hustle plays.

 

Pippen on the other hand couldn't connect from deep shooting 5 of 16 from downtown. Trevor led the way for Pippen with 13 points.

Bus Drivers 67  Hot Rim Action 40

Big win for bus drivers

Bus Drivers led this one start to finish opening up a 41-23 halftime lead and never looked back. James led the way with 27 points including 5 three pointers and a stifling team effort on defense held HRA to 40 points.

 

Outside of some impressive runners from Hartjes HRA wasn't able to muster much offense. The team's offense faltered shooting a combined 5 of 17 from deep.

Addition by subtraction?

What’s good? @thePaulReeves here, filling in for whoever tonight. I forgot how hot it gets in the Morse school in the summer! Man! It’s like being fully dressed in a sauna in here..

 

Not knowing anything about these two teams beforehand, I was skeptical of the team that showed up in their own red jerseys. Those aren’t CAC jerseys, boys! Tech’s for everyone! JK..

 

BGTD jumped out to a big lead early. Corey Fein had 11 of his teams first 15 points, and it looked like BGTD would roll in this one. Then Noah scored a couple buckets, Chris put one in, and Dan sank a 3, and it was 24-10 BGTD, and I was tempted to write “GAME OVER” on my sheet.

 

Then Escalade--I mean Gene Roundtree--checked in. He didn’t have a huge impact at first offensively, but his presence made driving lanes harder to come by for BGTD. A few minutes later, Sam Stolper, who had been playing well early, went down hard and immediately grabbed his shoulder. I guess he’s done this before, because he barely reacted like it hurt, more like dislocating his shoulder was an annoyance.

 

Anyway, while the game restarted after the injury, all I could think was “please don’t let Sam try to Lethal Weapon his shoulder back into place in front of me”, but luckily he just left, presumably to go to the emergency room.

 

From this point, It was a different game. I’m not saying Sam’s absence helped PS, as in addition by subtraction, but maybe they wanted to win one for the gipper.

 

Almost immediately after Sam left, Rylan went off. He had missed his first two 3 point attempts, but he kept shooting, and proceeded to hit his next 7. Four in the first half, and 3 more in the second half, before missing his final 3 attempt late in the game.

 

Rylan’s shooting got PS back into the game as the first half wore on, and PS went on a 12-2 run to close out the frame. At the half, BGTD led 26-22.

 

In the second half, although it was a close game by the score, it seemed that PS was in complete control. BGTD inexplicably went away from Chris “Big Country” Whitney, who had been getting whatever he wanted in the paint in the first half, and as a team they couldn’t find their outside shot, going 0/7 from deep in the final frame.

 

At one point, Jordan Staiger hit a 3 to put PS up 38-31, and BGTD just didn’t have the firepower to get closer than 3 points as the clock wore down, and Corey Fein missed a shot at a game tying 3 at the buzzer, letting PS hold on for the win.
