Fall 2006: A2 League Champs: The Funky Bunch

    The Born Gamer at it again as Funky Bunch takes down Little Nasty for the Golden Cup
    Little Nasty 66 Mike D & The Funky Bunch 76

    JaySar, feeling no ill effects from the previous night's loss, was up to his old tricks (26 points, 6 rebounds) in leading the Funky Bunch to the A2 Championship.  After nailing 14 of 14 free throws, many of them down the stretch to keep Little Nasty at arm's length, he was voted MVP by the panel of esteemed observers in attendance.  I wasn't going to argue, as the Born Gamer put on a show  that's becoming routine for him when the glare of the playoff lights are brightest.  My vote, however, would have gone to Fred Barone (23 points).  Fred was all over both ends of the floor.  On offense, he was driving to the hoop and getting guys in foul trouble.  On defense, we was harassing anyone who was bringing the ball up.  Maybe his most notable achievement was keeping Eric Hinton scoreless, just two nights after he set a career high.  Little Nasty had a 1 point lead at the break thanks to a prayer from Tim Deihl (30 points, 7 rebounds) at the buzzer.  The Reihl Deihl simply wouldn't miss on this night, repeatedly dragging Little Nasty back from double digit deficits.  Playing like a man possessed, Deihl drove to the hoop, grabbed loose balls and fired LN up when they needed a kick.  Trevor kicked in 14 points as well, but the Funky Bunch used a 10-0 run immediately after the half to build a lead that they would never surrender the rest of the way.  The big guys, Steve O (18 points) and Phi Slamma Jamma (6 points, 10 rebounds), controlled the paint from the get go and made life tough on Little Nasty when the drove to the hoop.  The Funky Bunch wrap up a great season with a huge victory and I owe them all a few rounds at the 99 the next time I get out there.
