Winter 2017: A 5v5 League Champs: GTL

    Yup
    Treys for Days 90 Zards 72

    Indeed, there were Tres for Days in this one and Mathias did a great job of finding his boys for open 3s all day. TFD went 11-for-18 from deep in the first half while Mark Phillips kept Zards somewhat close with 4 or 5 putbacks, as they trailed 49-39 at the break.

    Mayer started to attack in the second half and he led an 8-0 run to make it 67-62, but Folliard did a decent job of D'ing him up and Fitzgerald hit a couple more of his 6 3s, while Jay and USA (Matt) also nailed triples to suddenly make it 78-64 and secure a finals appearances.

    GTL Hangs On

    This looked the finals just based on athleticism and quality of play and GTL came out with the intensity like it was just that.

    Jake Page running the offense and barely missing a shot while Tony fancied himself a point forward setting up Preston with a mismatch down low.

    An and-1 from Tongo right before the half made it 38-30 GTL at the break and they opened that to 47-34 on a 3 from Tony.

    Gummy Bears pushed to get back into it once Xavier became more aggressive and Andrew Hope hit a 3 to make it 49-42, but they couldn't close the gap.

    Connor was distraught to see that they were still down 11! (actually 9) despite the fact that he kept hitting contested threes down the stretch, because ya know, GTL was making FTs.
