Winter 2008: Women’s 4v4 League Champs: Ladies First

    Ladies My Mercedes - Ladies First Holds 2 Titles
    Icebox 50 Ladies First 63

    With resident Ladies Man BWad (for this past season anyway) watching from the balcony, Ladies First went on a 9-0 run to start the 2nd half and push their slim lead to double digits.  Playoff MVP 'Magic' Johnson ( 22 points, 5 assists) was pushing the pace and finding Ashley (18 points) on the wing to drop bombs.  It was 'only' a 5-12 performance but enough to give Ladies First the extra option they needed to repeat this season.

    Their offense wasn't as efficient or as high-powered as they had been the last half of the season, but they had enough to get it done.  Kellie (17 points, 10 boards) added the third fire-breathing orafice in Ladies First's Chimera.  She ended the season with the highest player rater in 4v4 and pulled a Hakeem to the Gripp's (13 points, 5 blocks) David Robinson (come one people, get with it, http://www.hoopsvibe.com/nba/nba-articles/cotd-hakeem-olajuwon-murks-david-robinson-ar46425.html ).  Ok, that was a little mean, as Ladies First clearly had the better team on this night.  Fay (4 points) and LJ (12 boards) didn't score as much as last week, but they did what it took to win.  They played good D on the regular season MVP and they crashed the boards hard.   

    The Rainmaker (13 points, 6 assists) and Daisy Dukes (12 points, 8 boards) finally started to find the bottom of the well late in the second half, but by then they were down almost 20.  The Nose tossed in 8 points to go along with her defensive prowess.  Speaking of the defense, they played Ladies First as well as anyone had all season long, 10 points below their average isn't anything to sneeze it.  But with Caitlin not hitting a field goal in the second half they weren't able to capitalize.  Ladies First played some good D as well.

    Yea, tempers flared down the stretch, but Ladies, remember this is a rec league, there's no need for the excessive trash talk in the league, especially when it's mean spirited, or the retaliation.  The ref will keep the game in hand, there's no need to try and do it yourselves.  Take the high road, talk trash about the team behind their back later that night, or worst case scenario, take it out on O'Cal, he's used to being abused by every woman in his life.  It's only the natural order of things.

    Ladies First goes out of the League on top with their second straight Golden Pump.  Each of the three teams that has won the Pump has repeated, now who is next?? Icebox will come back next season with the same squad and will have to be the heavy favorites, especially after starting this past season 9-0.  Will the Summer 08 session be their time?
