Winter 2018: Saturday Draft League Champs: Venereal D

    VD secure top spot
    Venereal D 76 Bi-Koller Disorder 53

    Preamble

    In a game that meant nothing I had a good time covering celebrity guest Chas fill in for BKD. He would end the day with 11pts, 8 rebounds, 1 steal, and 2 assists. However, VD would come away with the W as they locked up the #1 seed.

    Game Notes

    • I am hella late and hella tired so I’ll be using bullets for this recap; plus it adds a certain fast paced aesthetic IMO.
    • McQ scored first off a kick by Jeff for an open triple. BKD seemed disinclined to cover him from deep all game. He would go 2/2.
    • Seun had a nice dime to a streaking Daley for the quick 5-0 lead. I had to make sure it was Seun and not Zak on that long pass, but it checked out.
    • BKD got going with Koller hitting Chas outside for his first triple (3/3 on the day) after a steal, and then putting the ball back inside. I cannot state this enough; Koller was the AWESOME in this one and the primary reason it was a game.
    • Koller shimmied Zak inside (no dream shake) but the MVP favorite hit a long ball to stay out in front, 14-9.
    • Chas second triple to start the second quarter made things spicy, 18-19!
    • EJ did not hit a triple immediately upon entering this week, but his second attempt was good off a Daley feed! However, Koller again slipped inside and converted, 20-22.
    • Jeff, who had been absent for a bit, definitely made his presence felt with a big SWAT on DWill.
    • Koller was simply on FIRE as he hit a 10 footer, then assisted DWill on his to make him feel better following the swat, 26-32.
    • VD’s offense started humming with a couple of quick scores, notably Zak’s long pass to McQ followed by McQ’s long pass to…. Zak! Zak wasn’t done though, hitting EJ for another triple for their biggest lead, 35-24.
    • With the clock winding down VD took time, called out a play (I have no idea what it was supposed to be), but ended with a back breaking, buzzer beating, McQ triple!!! 41-32 VD.
    • Second half was more of the same; Koller carrying BKD and VD moving the ball beautifully to stretch the lead slowly.
    • Seun blocked DWill a couple minutes in. Poor DWill.
    • Zak had a tough finish (for him) inside, then followed that with an easy skip pass to Jeff for a 55-38 going into the 4th
    • Seun passed the ball to, and hit, Tobi, who was NOT playing in this game.
    • DWill stopped the bleeding with a jumper off a Chas dime, but it was way too late, 40-61, with about five minutes left. However he would then assist Chas on his last triple of the day a couple plays later, 48-67.
    • Koller’s last assist to a cutting DWill made it 52-69, but it would never get closer than that.
    • VD win big, 73-53, securing the top spot in the playoffs!
