Fall 2012: A Draft League Champ: Overrated

    Overrated Stays Strong Knocks Off Ballz
    Overrated 72 Ballz On Yo Momma 62

    This game followed the script that so many Overrated games have followed this season.

    They played pretty tight early, went on a little run to get some breathing room, then managed to hang out by making just enough plays in the end. Will that translate into playoff success? It remains to be seen.

    Early on, it was all Pete Wilson for Overrated. He knocked down his first three triples of the game, en route to an 11-9 lead for his team. Despite his hot shooting (and the absence of Joe Hoerner), Ballz was able to keep in this game, tying it at 11 on an aggressive move by Mike Weinstein.

    Overrated would score the next 6 points, though, and go up 17-11, then 28-21. They ended the half up 15, and it seemed like they\'d be able to coast against a Ballz team missing it\'s tallest and longest defender. 

    They lead stayed between 12 and 15 for the third quarter, and at 56-41, Overrated was in the driver seat. Vladi was finally able to knock down a couple shots, however, and found Jacob for a few easy buckets, and all of a sudden they\'d cut the lead to 64-61.

    Pete Wilson stepped up again. A huge putback, followed by a steal and layup put Overrated up 7 with less than 2 minutes to go, and Ballz had no comeback magic for this one.

    Three Stars:

    Pete Wilson, Overrated

    Started strong, finished strong -- basically a microcosm of this game for Overrated. Finished with not only 23 points, but also 15 boards and 5 assists, for a massive stat line and a complete game.

     

    Two Stars:

    Stephen Wolf, Overrated

    Had to work for it, but can\'t not reward a 26-17-4 line. For anybody else, that\'s a career type game.


    One Star:

    Vladi Nechev/Jacob Golden, Ballz on Yo Momma

    Kind of cheating splitting the star in half, but they both came through huge in the comeback effort. Vladi actually got the bucket in addition to dishing out 10 assists, and Jacob led his team with 28 points, including 4-7 from deep.

     

    Odds and Ends:

     

    • Mike Weinstein was way more aggressive early in this one than he was last week -- that\'s a good sign for a Ballz team that\'s going to need him to carry a big scoring load going forward.
    • Overrated got called for two fouls the entire game.
    • Jacob lead all scorers (again?), an impressive feat for a late round pick. 
    • Brian\'s defense really made Stephen work all day, other defenders could take a page out of his book when it comes to slowing down the lanky forward.
    • Seriously, Overrated went like 25 minutes without being whistled for a foul. I\'ll put it this way: there were probably a combination of factors at work.
    • Overrated is thisclose to locking up the top seed.
