Brought to you by a Legend
Week 9 was a really weird week and quite frankly was an awesome way to end the regular season. All 4 games were upsets. I only scored 4 points in a win. Tommy dropped 50+! All 4 games were exciting and entertaining and this bodes well as we head into the playoffs tomorrow night. As for the Week 9 Legend of the Week? It was a no brainer…congrats to Mike Strange!
Strange was flat out stupid last Monday playing the best game I have ever seen from him. Not only did Strange put forth a 44 point, 20 rebound, 5 assist line, he also put Free Hat on his back and willed his team to a big win over heavily favored Green Machine. Free Hat was down 20 in the second half and Strange went into beast mode. Strange was literally everywhere, hitting 3s, taking the ball to the rim and draining mid range jumpers with ease. He really impressed me with his effort especially given how tired he looked/was before the game. Talk about digging deep! A truly great performance by Strange gets him this week’s legend of the week honors.
Mike Kuzdeva – 25 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, W
Nate Mendes – 26 points, 6/12 from deep, W
Joe Hoerner – 24 points, 12 rebounds, 5 steals, W
Week 9 Notables:
1. Tommy had a MONSTER game in week 9. He put up 51 and shot lights out from 2. The 51 is the most points scored in A Draft in a single game this season. As DRuff put it: “Damn! T’s on fire!” Yes, he was.
2. Green Machine blew a 20 point second half lead to Free Hat. Free Hat was able to collect their 2nd win of the season with the great comeback.
3. Without BMul in action, Hurricane Season shot 9/34 from deep, or 26%. If BMul were there, this probably would have been around 20%.
4. All 4 teams who had a .500 record or WORSE won this past week. Four games. Four upsets. One Ball was 4-4 before they beat CAC Elite.
5. In his last 3 games, Nate Mendes is 14/29 from deep, or 48%. Get a hand in this guy’s face!
Congrats to Strange for winning this week’s LoW award and playing a great game.
Awards on the way. Playoffs tomorrow. Have a good Monday everyone.
