Spring 2011: SML League Champs: Sunday Morning Legends

    Kaplans Sunday Morning Legends team completes near perfect season.
    Sunday Morning Legends 76 Team Bring It 67

    The championship game was between two good teams Team Bring It (TBI) the # 2 seed and the Sunday Morning Legends (SML) the # 1 seed.  Tibbs was on hand to film the action and BFab was there to ref.  TBI gave the SML their only loss way back in week 2 by a mere 2 points.  SML was riding an 8 game wining streak coming into the finals.  Although traditionally the winner would get a golden 40 OZ it wouldn’t be the case today.  The teams were playing for one thing and one thing only their names on the banner.  On to the action.

    TBI was ready to play early on as they led 6-0 after the first few minutes.  With about 10 minutes remaining in the half, TBI now only led 16-14 as you could sense the momentum was shifting and SML was getting over their Saturday night partying.  As the half continued, the game went back and forth but SML closed the half leading 31-27 mainly due to the strong play of John Mazzone and Jon Press.  Both guys combined for 22 points.  On the TBI side, Jim Bayley who was fresh off attending Yao Ming’s retirement party led the way for his team with 8 points, 4 rebounds and an assist.

    5 minutes into the second half, SML went on a 13-5 run and now led by 10 (44-34) and looked to put this game out of reach, but if you know TBI they never give up.   TBI went on a run of their own (12-5) led mostly by Drew Legare (16 second half points) and now trailed by only 3 (49-46) with 9 minutes remaining.  Despite a great effort by Bobby Colantonio who scored 10 of his 17 points in the second half, the game wouldn’t get any closer than 3 points.  Mazz and Press proved to be too much and Will Diieso (6-8 from the freethrow line all in the second half) basically sealed the deal.  Final score 76-67 SML wins.

    Co-MVP were Mazz and Press.  I usually prefer to give MVP to one guy but both guys were key to the victory. Good season by TBI and congratulations to SML
