Fall 2013: Sunday Morning League Champs: DangerZone

    Danger Zone dominates wins back to back championships
    Danger Zone 73 Sunday Morning Legends 56

    Coming into this game I thought Sunday Morning Legends (SML) had the advantage.  Even though Danger Zone (DZ) won convincingly last game, SML was the number 1 seed and had handled adversity pretty well all season.  Plus I wanted to see this series go three games.

    In the first half DZ was just ready to end this thing.  SML took a timeout with about 12 minutes left in the half down 11-8.  As the half continued DZ was just clearly looking like the better team. All things were going right as Bobby gave Cadman a nice pass just before the half ended and swish three made by Cadman DZ was up 41-26.  For SML despite not making a three Ryan still played well 10 pts, 1 oreb and 2 asts.  Also playing well was Hex with 10 pts, 1 oreb, 6 drebs and 1 ast.  For DZ so many guys were playing well.  Bobby C 9 pts, 2 drebs and 6 asts, Mike Cadman 3-3 from three, 1 blk, 2 drebs and 1 ast, Ryan Kelley 10 pts, 1 blk, 3 drebs and Matt Maloney 8 pts and 2 orebs.  If this wasn’t enough, DZ had a special guest.  Can you guess who?  Let me say the three things this person said while he was there.  “Don’t foul out my Bobby.”  I told this person talk to the ref and the reply was no you can control it.  This person also said “Mike you are a little short on the hook shot.”  The last that was said should be duly noted by CAC management.  “You should get paid 100 bucks a game based on all the things they got you doing.”  Who is this genius you ask, none other than Mr. Colantonio Bobby’s dad.  Seriously Bobby I’m inviting him to the next CAC staff meeting.

    Anyway second half was just more of the same, DZ playing great team ball and SML just getting worked.  No need to go into further what transpired  just note the final score was 73-56.  Here’s the video:http://youtu.be/hAJUJAB4JOQ 

    It’d be nice of both teams come back.  Go ahead and give the confirmation here: http://www.cacbasketball.com/discussion/cac-open-thread/sml-winter-2014/   And before I forget let me give some grades.  This may be the last time so enjoy or not.

    Danger Zone:

    Bobby Colantonio (A+) Mostly because his dad was there but no I gave him the MVP so he can never say I don’t give him any credit.

    Mike Cadman (B+) I feel like Mike was one of the main reasons DZ had such a large lead at the half.  His halftime buzzer beater three was nice too.

    Ryan Kelley (A) Another solid shooting performance for Ryan.  He played big when most needed by DZ.

    Matt Connelly (A) I almost gave him MVP because he absolutely stuffed the stat sheet.  This was another solid game for Matt, which was pretty consistent all season long for him.

    Matt Maloney (A) His stats don’t jump off the page at you but he definitely deserved this grade.

    Kevin Tang (C+) Played a smart game and took advantage of his limited opportunities.

    Sunday Morning Legends

    Matt Kaplan (C-) It pained me to give him this grade.  The passing grade is for the assists and rebounding and that nice lefty lay-up.  It wasn’t his fault that his team lost so I couldn’t really go too low here.

    Ryan Fischer (B-) He got his points but they clearly didn’t benefit his team.  He didn’t make his normal threes but still he played an ok game by his standards.

    Mike Fraher (C-) I could say Mike should’ve done more but I guess he did what he could.  I unfortunately have to grade based on stats too.

    Keith Baranoswki (C) Keith played average by his standards.  I definitely would’ve like to see more especially in a do or die game.

    Elijah Heckstall (B-) Hex actually had a solid game.  The Shaq shooting from the free throw line definitely hurt his grade.
