b.good Players of the Week – Week 2

The b.good player of the week has come back to life, much like the “TOM BRADY IS THE BEST QB EVER” proclamations after last night’s masterful fourth quarter

Throughout the Winter 2015 season, each league will have a b.good Player of the Week nominated by their league scribe. We used to do this way back in the day, but with modern technology, it’s so much easier to redeem your free burger in 2015. Winners just need to download the b.good app and they will get a coupon for a free burger! Head to your nearest b.good purveyor for the tastiest burger in Boston!

Even though we only had a handful of leagues play last week, we are still rewarding these players for their outstanding efforts

WEEK 2 WINNERS (1/26-2/1)

B Draft East – Matt Wetherbee, Headband Funk –  Matt hit 8 threes and carried his team to victory, despite being 5.5 point underdogs to Once You Go Blackborow. It’s uncommon to outduel Matt Fermon in a shootout but on this night, it happened. Wetherbee was straight cash from all over the court and got his team a victory that it simply had to have. ~ Boss Bradshaw

B2 5v5 Mid – Andrew Knight, Whammy – The stat line does not tell the whole story with Andrew Knights. Knight showed up late with his team down by nine points about halfway through the first half. His team went on a 12-0 run before he stepped on the court. He helped with six points, 11 rebounds and six assists, but it was just his presence that helped Whammy roll to a win. ~Roach

B Draft West – Tim Lens, A Gronking to Remember – Tim Lens was B Draft West’s Week 2 B. Good Player of the Week. After receiving a potential snub last week (40 points in Week 1) Tim outdid himself against former captain Matty Bells. Lens had a 47 point, 8 rebound, 5 assist statline, and erased a double digit lead in the final minute single-handedly. I’m sure he’d rather have the win, but a burger will suffice. ~Boyer

B2 5v5 East – Mike Baker, Natural Poppin – In the closest nail biter of a game this week Mike was on point throwing up solid numbers in every category on the sheet. Though in the end they may have lost by just 1 point, without Mike and his ability to create opportunities and score points they may not have been in it at all, and for that the kid deserves a burger. – Ben

B2 5v5 West – Kameel Lashley, Migos Never Die – Kameel had a great debut for the Migos with 15+ points and board, but it was his offensive rebound with under a minute left that allowed the Migos to go up two possessions after free throws and seal their week 2 win! ~Tibbs

B2 5v5 North Xin Zhou AShow – He lit up the score boards for his 2nd consecutive 30+ point game and leading his team to the win. ~Earnest

B1 5v5 West – Nick Weber, Intramural Heroes – Some players dominate the game with skill, while others overwhelm their opponents with superior athletic ability. Nick definitely falls into the latter category and his athleticism was on full display this past week. He led IMH to their first win, filling up the stat sheet with 20 pts, 8 rebs (4 offensive), 3 steals, 2 blocks and 2 dimes. He is a bully in the post, able to outwork and out-muscle taller players, while still possessing the touch to finish his drives. Nick is a player to watch this season in the stacked B1 5v5 West league. -Mazz

SDL – Eric Benvenuti, Saturday Special Pizza Delivery – With his team trailing 35-34 at the break, Benvenuti went off. He scored all of his team’s points in a furious 13-5 run early in the second half to help his team take a 47-39 lead. They would eventually win 71-63. There is no video evidence of it, but what this dude was pretty special. During the run he buried three bombs from deep, including two in a row, the last of which came after he shook a defender at half-court with a behind-the-back dribble to gain space before pulling up. He finished the game with a monster line of 44 points and 19 rebounds. He also finished with a steal and a block while hitting three 3-pointers and shooting 11-15 from the line. He was locked in a serious, physical battle with Marc Bartholdi of Oral Llamas for most of this game. The Llamas actually played some nice D on him, throwing different guys at him (Bartholdi, Dave Baxter and Scott Hammond) while utilizing some double-teams, but there was no stopping EB on Saturday. He had 16 of his team’s 34 at the break, before exploding for 26 in the second frame. He also showed off his usual assortment of moves on the block, turnarounds, fade-aways and post scores. ~Haas
