Spring 2012: A Draft League Champs: IMPALAS

    9-1 Regular Season Means Nothing - YUUUUUUUUUP
    The Strong Persuaders 64 Free Hat 76

    It’s been a while since this game happened so I will do my best to give as good a summary as possible. We had a semifinals matchup between the top seeded Strong Persuaders and Free Hat. 

    Strong Persuaders looked good early as Dennis showed why he is the league MVP. Dennis hit his first 3 deep balls giving SP a 7 point lead. Even Frank hit a 3 as he came out o the gate FIRING! Free Hat has that stiff named Tibbs though and he really had his way with the “bigs” of SP. Tibbs was great in the first half, owning kids in the paint while showing everyone that he isn’t completely inept. Tibbs sngle handedly brought Free Hat back as Free Hat trailed by 2 with 7 minutes to go.

    Free Hat really looked good thoughout after the opening minutes. The front line of Tibbs and Nestler dominated the game on both ends of the floor. Nestler was blocking shots like crazy and Tibbs played a strong game offensively. Overall Free Hat’s collective team play was really good as they led by 5 at the break.

    In the second half, offense for SP was tough to come by. SP really had to rely on the long ball from Dennis and Chanel as the Tibbs-Nestler combo inside proved to be tough to overcome. Hoerner was able to give SP a spark inside with his strong drives to the rim and terrific energy level but I felt like SP was going to have to win this game from the outside.

    The second half was truly a good one as both teams really left it all on the floor. Free Hat clung to a 2 point lead with 10 minutes to go and it was at about this time Vladi went crazy. Vladi his some epic threes in the late minutes and this was really the difference. With 2 minutes to go Free Hat led by 5 and Vladi shut the door on SP with his 8/9 FT performance. Free Hat moves on to the finals as they end Strong Persuaders season unfulfilled.
