Fall 2008: A 5v5 League Champs: Wolverines

    Sweet redemption for the Wolverines
    Bad Man Soup 71 The Wolverines 76

    Breaking out of the pre-game huddle of the Wolverines they say ìhard workî and that is precisely what they needed in this one. Coming into this game BMS where the heavy favorites with MVP candidate Demuth suited up for this one it looked like things might go by the wayside. BMS had the height advantage in almost every position so it seemed they had advantages on the defensive and offensive ends of the floor. BMS was seemingly in control of this uptempo physical game from the get-go which forced the Wolverines to call a relatively quick timeout. After gathering their thoughts and settling into what they wanted to do on the defensive end the Wolverines were able to weather the storm and make counter punches of their own, thanks in large part to the stellar first half performances from Hugh Coleman and Zack Ray.

     

    Towards the end of the 1st half Ray went up for a layup when he was undercut by Crotty and landed squarely on his back. After getting up and gingerly hitting 1 of 2 ftís he took himself out and wouldnít return till the 2nd half of play. From seeing this I thought the Wolverines would be in big trouble as Ray was having a great game finding the open man and pushing the tempo of the game as he saw fit. The Wolves close out the 1st half on a 9-2 run.  Halftime and its 36-33 in favor of BMS

     

    Second half starts and Z Ray is still wincing on the bench insert Shawn Brown for the Wolverines who is one of the best shooters on either team. The Wolves grab their first lead of the game at the 13 minute mark in the 2nd half and the teams make lead changes for the next 6 minutes. Zack X-Ray comes back in with 6 mins to play and hits a 3 right off the bat. BMS up now 70-67 with 3 minutes left to go and this one seems to be pretty much wrapped up. Ohhh but wait here is the tremendous outside shooting of Hugh Coleman who dropped 25 points and 5 boards on the night. BMS was effective at shutting down Shawn Brown and Ed Walker but this team has too many weapons. Like I said before anyone of these guys could be the leading scorerís in the league.

     

    Tie game (70-70) with 1:22 left on the clock and Crotty is fouled at the top of the key by Big Nic and he has fouled out of the contest with 10 points, 3 boards, 2 steals, and 1 block. He played great defense on all the big men from BMS. Crotty hits one of 2 from the line and BMS would not score again despite their best efforts. Hugh, and X-Ray knock down some clutch FTís to seal the W for the Wolverines.

     

    Wolverines will take on Eat It to Beat It on Thursday night at 8pm at the Boys and Girls Club
