Winter 2013: B2 5v5 League Champs: Hurricane Ditka

    Greatest finish in CAC history BSH channels their inner C-Webb as KA wins South Championship
    Kevin Ali 72 Ball So Hard 68

     Tonight is the night where we crown two divisional champions in the B2 5v5 ranks. The first game of the night is the South Division Championship, with Ball So Hard taking on the odds on favorite in Kevin Ali. Great start for Ali, they posted a 14-8 that has them with 21-15 lead. It\'s been a three point shootout since then, and it\'s a 31-27 game in favor of BSH. Tight contest with just under 5 minutes to play, it\'s a 31 all game. Both teams have been going at it like two heavyweight boxers. Lehman gets away with verbal murder, receiving no technical fouls in the process. He\'s a key cog in the BSH offense, but he needs to control his temper because they cant afford to be disqualified. We\'re at the half of this closely contested game, BSH leads KA 39-34. Mayel and Said lead all scores and their respective teams with 12 each, they will have to be a main asset in the second half if either team wants to beat the other.
              BSH continues to stay in the driver\'s seat with a 9-5 start to the second half. They lead 48-39 with just over 17 minutes to go in the game, and after a Green layup, they now have a double digit lead. Cahill hits the mid-range jumper and it\'s a 52-41 game with just over 13 minutes to go. KA calls time-out down 41-54, they seem to be falling behind at a drastic pace. Hopefully \"Wojo\" Weitzer will be able to right the ship and make this a game. Out of the time-out, Weitzer sinks the triple to cut the lead to 11. Surprisingly, Wollocko is scoreless in this game, he needs to step up on the offensive side if KA wants a legit shot at this win. And there it is, Wollocko hits the clutch layup to put some points on the board. It\'s a 55-48 game with just under 10 minutes to go. Weitzer misses the three attempt, but Otto grabs the offensive board and gets the hoop and the harm! He misses the free throw, but his team only down 5. Wollocko with the reverse layup and one! He sinks the free throw, it\'s now a 55-53 game. Said hits the fast break lay in and KA ties this game up on a 14-0 run. Mahoney buries the triple over the outstretched arm on Wollocko to put his team back up 3. The 14-0 run they gave up is responded with a 7-0 run of their own, BSH is now up 62-55. The full court press from a desperate KA team is broken easily with Green finishing with an easy layup. With less than 2 minutes remaining, BSH has a 64-58 lead. This one looks out of reach for KA, but miracles can happen. Birrell with the 3, it\'s a 3 point game! Green misses the one and one free throw, but Otto touches it last and its BSH ball. Costly play for a guy who\'s hustling. Green goes one for two from the line, it\'s a four point game! Carroll can ice it, but he airballs the first free throw. He hits the second, and on the ensuing possession Said hits the three to bring it to two. Holy shit! It\'s a rare strong take from Weitzer to the cup, the game is now tied with under 30 seconds to go. I don\'t know why he does it but Weitzer fouls Green! He\'s staring up at the scoreboard like he didn\'t realize the game was tied! Green goes one of two from the line, and Weitzer makes up for it with a huge three in the corner, his team now leads 69-67! In a homage to Michigan circa 1993 (sidebar: it\'s been 20 years and 4 days to be exact), BSH calls time-out when they don\'t have any in attempt to stop the clock! Bad choice from them, they will get the time-out but lose possession as Weitzer goes 2-2 from the line to pretty much ice it. Wow, what a dramatic finish! Congratulations to Kevin Ali for coming from behind to win the South Division Championship.
