Spring 2008: B1 5v5 League Champs: ODB

    Friday The 13th Part XXX A Corporate Slaughtering
    ODB 69 The Corporation 53

    Voorhhiess strikes again...

    ODB knocks off the #1 seeded Corporation last night by a margin of 16 in the 5v5 B Championship Game. As I predicted, Championship MVP Phil ìMr Friday the 13thî Van Voorhies, was the hand that rocked the cradle, returning from a 2 week, multi-city killing spree to slice up The Corp for 23 points.

     

    Phil was unstoppable, rattling top-notch Corp defender, Pete Mugar, with a barrage of bank shots, swooshes, full-throttle slashes to the hoop and what seemed like endless jays. Mugar kept him honest and was in his face all-night, but Philís offensive dominance provided a consistent flow of points for ODB.

     

     The Corp just couldnít keep up offensively, thanks to the Berlin-Wall like structure, better known as the Rolls Royce, surrounding the paint. Except, instead of soviets he was denying all capitalist Corporate moguls entry, serving up a game high 4 blocks (one that he sent all the way back to Russia) and 5 stealsó1 for each finger. No member of the Corporation was safe in the lane. On the perimeter, Cheese brought the Corps best outside shooter, Josh Farnsworth to his knees, forcing him into the lane where he collided with the Berlin Wall on more than 1 occasion. He allowed Farnsworth only one trey, leaving him to collect most his points from the free-bee strip.

     

    Offensively, Riordan and Mugar led the way for The Corp with 11 a piece and Farnsworth wasnít far behind. Mugar was gettin to the rack and flashed some smooth pull-up jays, while Riordan handled the outside, pullin the trigger around Pistol Pete whenever he could. Gauvin and Lendler did their best underneath, fighting for boards and bangin with Royce. Halvorsen was quiet offensively, but given his defensive showdown with Royce, holding him to just 15, he did more than his fair share of work!! Gauvin played excellent help D smashin up ODB with 3 blocks and makiní sure Royceís life was a living hell down low allowing him mostly outside shots.

     

    While ODB lead the entire game, The Corp was close on their heels. Both teams got their hustle on as I witnessed Halvorsen, Phil and Pistol Pete all lay-out for loose balls, talk about gettin down ní dirtayyyy. Kip was a beast on the boards, rippin down rebounds and sneakin past The Corp defenders for some hard earned buckets to help maintain the lead. Sylvester stepped up poppiní in a few mid-rangers and drawing the AND1 call, and Jack Knife stuck a big 3 helping to fend off a Corp come back.

     

    As Mugar fouled out with just under 2 minutes to play, I knew that was it for the Corporation. Collectively, both teams put up a great effort. Of all the teams in this league, these 2 are probably the most team oriented with everyone contributing on both ends of the floor, and their overall success can certainly be attributed to this.

     

    Itís been a blast guys, thank you so much for making this league so enjoyable to watch, score and sensationalize!! I hope to see most of you back in the fall!!

     

    Forever Yours,
