Spring 2014: B2 5v5 League Champs: Steamboats

    Steamboats holds off Is it the Shoes in second half
    Steamboats 71 Is It The Shoes? 62

    Halfway through the first half, Is it the Shoes\' Phillip Samayoa took an elbow to the nose. He stumbled back, swayed, then sat down on the court in order to stop play. Play was stopped Samayoa tried to get back up on his feet. He swayed again and his teammates implored him to take a seat – he did. Similarly, any time Is it the Shoes tried to bolster a rally, Steamboats seemed to say, “No, no – you don\'t look too good – you better take a seat and rest.”

    The Steamboats\' Jamey Guess led the efforts with 29 points, shooting 44 percent from beyond the arc. Guess\' play didn\'t skyrocket until the second half; the Steamboats\' led by only four points at the break.

    With 13 minutes left to play, Is it the Shoes was able to tie things at 45 each, but then the Steamboats\' play took off and so did the chances of Is it the Shoes moving on to the unification game.

    Is it the Shoes was led by Roy Ghantous (20 points, five rebounds, five assists) and Eric Benvenuti (16 points, 11 rebounds, two assists). The Steamboats\' languid, fast-paced play was too much for Is it the Shoes\' defense to handle, though – obviously, or I wouldn\'t have written all I just wrote about the Steamboats winning this game. It\'s a shame, too, because Is it the Shoes is such impressive team name, especially with the addition of the question mark. Unfortunately, I had to exclude the question mark from this write-up because it just makes things grammatically muddled. I\'m truly sorry for that.
