Winter 2014: Women’s 4v4 League Champs: Mary Tyler Moore Tyler Moore Moore Moore

    MTM are W4v4 Champs
    Mary Tyler Moore Tyler Moore Moore Moore 84 Chasing Mavericks 62

    If I told you in the beginning of the season, that a group of girls who didn\'t know each other from a hole in the wall were to take on, in my opinion, the most complete team in the league and beat them handedly to win the championship, would you believe me? I didn\'t think that Mary Tyler Moore was going to knock off the likes of Pam Robinson and Kia Minor, but they did more than knock off, they knocked out!!

    The ladies of Mary Tyler Moore are comprised of players that signed up to play in the league without a team to their name and what they did was simply fascinating! They finished the regular season 7-2 with losses to Reboot and eventual runner-up Chasing Mavericks, and put on two classics against another formidable team in BUFF, one went 4 OTs and the one to put them in this game went to Triple Overtime! The Mavericks had a late surge once Robinson started making it to games, and the one-two punch of Minor and the aforementioned Robinson were too tough to handle for most teams.

    The first half of this game was a tough one to call. Both squads were going back and forth with neither team grabbing a significant hold of the lead. MTM was looking good, but you could just sit their and think, that eventually CM would turn on the jets and start to run away with it, but that never happened. CM played this game as if they already won, while MTM was playing to win. They outhustled, outrebounded, and outplayed CM in every aspect. But CM was running off straight talent in the first half and after CM\'s big Shafir knocked down a couple of mid-range jumpers, they started to get in the groove. At the half, MTM had a slight 39-38 lead over CM, but what happened next was out of the ordinary.

    Just as tight as the first half was, the second was the complete opposite. It started out real tight again, but Gustafson and Vitagliano began to hit the shots that complimented Cullitty\'s career night (20 pts, 10 rebs). Scoring 17 of her 25 in the second half, Gustafson dropped bucket after bucket inside and out while Vitagliano began lighting it up from downtown to give her team the big lead. Shafir went dormant and Pacione was invisible on offense as Robinson tried to carry the load of her team on her shoulders. Minor\'s offense went away and the MTM ladies kept pouring it on. Before you knew it the lead was 16 and it was way out of reach. 

    Congratulations to Mary Tyler Moore on winning their first (and hopefully not only!) Women\'s 4v4 League Championship! They had an incredible season that was capped off with a 84-62 win over one of the better teams in the league. Kudos to Chasing Mavericks for playing hard to the final whistle, better luck next season ladies! I\'ll see you in May!!
