OBA All-Stars 78  The Kids 65

OBA fights back to .500 with Rusty Nails looming

Tibbs stepping in for Tej last night as I had a rash of call-outs, forfeits and calls to resign for making people play. Not sure why, nothing else was going on last night that could possibly trump CAC basketball games!! 

After the first game of the night I'm prepared to announce that the OBA All-Stars are BACK! I glance in at all my league pages each week, and I can't begin to describe how shocked I was a few weeks ago when I saw OBA in the basement of the league at 0-3. That was not what I expected when the season starts

https://www.cacbasketball.com/discussion/cac-league-discussion/b2-5v5-mid-preview/

So it's good to see them back on track. Good if you like rooting for the Empire, the Harkonnens, or the Forsaken I supposed. I know most of you got one of those references. If you got two without googling I'm impressed. All three? You should join my book club

Anyway, Jay O'Keefe led OBA in the first half with four triples. On the other side, Massey and Inno both hit a couple early 3s themselves to keep the game close. Everyone was fired up, we only had one ref, but all in all a solid first half. 

The game turned during a 6 minute stretch of action. The last 2 minutes of the first half, OBA ended  it on a 7-1 run. The first 4 of the second half, they went on a 13-2 run to expand their lead to double digits  Ryan O'Keefe led the way in that run with a couple deep threes and a couple really nice blocks. 

For the mathmatically challenged, that's a 20-3 run over a 6 minute stretch and was the deciding 

The rest of the way, the Kids hung close, but could never make a push to challenge for the game. Cummins had a nice second half, Inno put in a couple more long balls, but when you shoot 9-32 from downtown and your opponent shoots 12-21 its going to be hard to beat them. That's some impressive effeciency! 

My internet service was super spotty last night, kind of like the spots you all saw when you took Js on the far side of the court, but I did manage to fire off some tweets during the games. Check them out! 

 
GAME OF THE SEASON goes down next week as the Rusty Nails look to improve to 7-0, while OBA looks to show the league the first third of the season doesn't matter because everyone makes the playoffs and they'll be the team to beat regardless of their seed.

Rusty Nails stay undefeated with OBA looming

The 7 & 8 PM games last night both featured forfeits, but the 9 PM game was committed! Thankfully for all involved, we swung this game to 7 PM and got everyone out early so they could go home and get a good night's rest.

I've got to say, neither team shot the ball particularly well in this one. They combined to shoot under 30% from downtown and were probably not much better of lay-ups and midrange jumpers 

Team Cheese came into this one as a pretty big dog (line closed at 15.5, so they did cover) but Dubuque's long ball kept the team in it in the first half. He and Robbie looked like they were going to have great shooting nights, but their Js disappeared shortly after the opening frame. 

Nesbit is having a great season, and his hot shooting led the Nails early. OBA stayed after their game to scout and quickly realized that they'll have their hands full slowing Nexbit down next week. 

Coming out of halftime, with his team up just 3 points, Mike Novak asked how many assists he had so far. Now, as someone who regularly checks how many blocks i credit credit for, I don't really blame him for it, BUT there's a time and a place you know. Plus, know who you're dealing with!!

Rusty Nails steadily increased their lead in the second half as Team Cheese went cold from downtown in the early minutes. Matt Novak was getting layups, Jake Chory put in a couple while he wasn't mocking Mike's thirst for stats.

Dana kept trying to rally the Cheese troops in the second half, but to no avail in this one. If they ever get more than 5 guys on the court, especially for it's a playoff game, you're all going to regret taking this team lightly based on their record! 

Lastly, if Mike Novak really wanted that triple double, he should have passed a whole lot more. Anyone can pick up 5 assists while I'm on the scoreboard (#beststatkeeperalive), hell Jake Chory DID (7 to Mike's 5), so don't nitpick if you're not going for double digits! 

Meanwhile Matt Novak just kept getting buckets. The problem was, he didn't point to me after each one, didn't micormanage my statsheet or taunt his teammates about missing lay-ups when (if) he passed them the ball. As a result he mostly gets ignored despite laeding the way with 26 points.

Rusty Nails cruised down the stretch to another win! I didn't get to tweet nearly as much as I wanted to last night, which was a bummer, but I managed to roast Mike Novak TWICE, so my ratio is on point.
