Spring 2019: A 5v5 League Champs: The Avengers

    Second-half run sparks Avengers to title
    The Basketball Team 88 Avengers 102

    Avengers scored the first 21 points of the second half to turn a 10-point lead into a 31-point lead and rolled to a 102-88 win over The Basketball Team to win the A League title.

    Avengers rolled thanks to the duo of Anthony Gurley and Raheem Singleton. Singleton had 34 points, nine boards, and five assists. Gurley had 35 points, 10 rebounds and five dimes and shot 8-15 from three.

    Avengers also got solid performances from Justin Rosa (13 points & four assists) and KC Erickson (lockdown defense) to slow down TBT's shooters.

    The lead flipped hands five times in the first nine minutes before Avengers took the lead for good midway through the first half.

    Alex Barlow threw everything he had at Avengers with a 38-point, 17-rebound performance but the shots didn't fall with consistency in the second half. Isaiah Nelson had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds including a game-high eight offensive boards.
