    Hex Marks the Spot And Van Houghton Delivers Smellies take the Title
    6 Man Wolf Pack 42 The Team You Could Smell Like 53

    • Great that we had two referees for this one as it is hard enough for Mazz alone to try and determine where the three point line is. Another ref should definitely help things on that front. .
    • No DeStadler in this one I thought spelled doom for the Smellies as this was going to be a close one already. The kid is a stud on defense!
    • Both of these teams are relatively mild mannered when it comes to the refereeing. I don't remember any one of these guys making a peep to the ref. Good for them – we need way more of that in the B2 East!
    • I will have you know that the Obama tax-cut plan will have no effect on CAC employees next season. After hard lobbying by CAC management, the bill explicitly exempts CAC staff from receiving the benefit of a tax cut.  
    • From the opening tap, Muse is off early, By my expert math, he missed his first 6 three point attempts - he needs to get going for the Wolfpack to have a chance.
    • Acunzo responds with his own slow start from the outside, leaving Greg to do all of the heavy lifting from behind the arc (hitting on his first 2 of 3 and giving the Smellies a very important early lead).
    • Sachin the Dream is saddled by foul trouble, but ends up with a double-double anyway.
    • Hex? Well, he had a great game – 17 points, 9 rebounds and another thunderous block. But he struggled from the line (3 for 10).
    • Muse picked it up in the 2nd half and ended up with a double-double, but as expected, he and Hex pretty much canceled each other out.  Individual battle in this one definitely went to Hex though.
    • All said and done, not the greatest Finals game I have ever seen played. Both team struggled to some extent. And it was a bit choppy. I thought the Semifinals were much more exciting and well played – maybe it was a letdown game for BOTH teams. Or maybe we should move the league to the Kennedy Museum?
    • 4 for 17 from behind the arc ultimately did the Wolfpack in. Acunzo was able to pick it up a bit in the second half to finish with 13 points (3 for 7 from behind the arc)
    • Greg was the Finals MVP for sure with 16 points (huge in the beginning of the game) and 12 boards. And he played great defense on Sachin the Dream in the post. I wouldn't say he came out of nowhere to win the Finals MVP because he had a solid season and was always a presence, but if someone asked me before the game who on the Smellies may get the Finals MVP, he'd have been 4th on the list (and maybe 5th if Amber showed up!).
    • Great season by the Wolfpack. They were an exciting team all year round. Muse obviously had a great year, Sachin the Dream emerged as a star, Dally is a monster in the middle, and Ben/Sokol/Satyan had major contributions too. A great group of guys and we hope to see them next season.
    • Congrats to the Smelllies. I definitely challenged them all season long to step up their intensity as there were some weeks where they looked bored. But they stepped it up big time in the playoffs and took care of business. No way a team with this much talent should lose – and they didn't. Great work and thanks for a great season.
