Winter 2011: A2 League Champs: Genzyme

    Genzyme advances to Finals
    Genzyme 100 Bed Intruders 75

    Had a pretty nice live-blog all written up for this game, couldn\'t wait to post it.

    Then, at the end of the night, as I sorted all my things, I dropped my laptop onto the ground...apparently, breaking my hardrive. I\'ve lost all my writeups... :-(

    Anyway, here\'s how it went.

    Despite what was easily Bed Intruder\'s best effort of the season, Genzyme proved to be far superior, pulling away in the second half for a 25-point win.

    Things were close early on, Vladi started out 3-3 from deep, keeping his team close while the late-arriving Cousins got \"warmed up.\"

    It was possibly the Intruders best half of basketball all season, despite a no-show from Terry. Tibbs was finishing with flair, Burke (when he wasn\'t missing threes) was on his way to a double-double (assists/rebounds) and the defense, amazingly, didn\'t suck.

    Sadly, for BI, no matter how well the defense was played, Tim O\'Keefe wasn\'t missing, Thursday night. Dude had 24 in the first half and played a huge role in spreading out Gezyeme\'s lead before the first buzzer.

    Tibbs\' layin had cut the lead to one with five minutes left in the first frame, but after a quick timeout, Gezyeme swiitched gears, ending the half on a 12-2 run.

    They brought that momentum with them into the second half (accompained by Ryan O\'Keefe) and simply played at another speed that Bed Intruders.

    Despite Cousins\' best efforts (and I mean that literally), Genzyme had no trouble in running away with the win, and punching their ticket for a championship game agaisnt ManBearPig.
