Spring 2010: Women’s 5v5 League Champs: CAC Me If You Can

    Clock Strikes Midnight on CACerella
    CAC Me if You Can 43 CACWoWW 42

    Ladies - It's that time of the season.  Check out the Fall 2010 Info and the 3v3 Info for August 14th/15th! Also, you saw my Women's 5v5 Awards, right?!

    Yes, I know, the tip time of 9:45 PM is brutal, just as much, if not more so, for me. 

    From the 'preview' of this game, found in the awards!

    "Unless Fenn goes absolutely BANANAS in this one, and Becky is shooting 100%, I fear it will be a long night for the WoWWers. "

    Well, BOTH of those things pretty much happened AND CAC Me was completely overwhelmed, whether by the late tip time, the pressure of being huge favorites, or simply by looking at BFab's stunning 15 bill weight loss in this night alone, we may never know.

    Longest run on sentence EVER.

    Anyway, this game started off as a sign of things to come, WoWW 'jumped' out to a 6-2 lead 7 minutes into this game.  Maybe it was the lack of warm up time.  I don't know, something was off for CAC Me.

    They fixed it, for the only time in this game, over the next 4 minutes. 13 quick points gave them a double digit lead and the swagger to seemingly cruise to the win, as expected by the gigantic line (again, read the awards people!).

    CACWoWW was having none of that!  Fenn did go B-A-N-A-N-A-S, the crowd support was behind WoWW and they dug in on defense.  CAC Me only scored 4 points in the second 'quarter' of this game.  And it's not like thy can blame the ref, they went to the free throw line 12 times (hit 8) but only hit 5 shots.  Yes, we had a 17-19 score at the end of the first half of a playoff game.

    You were NOT keeping me awake ladies.

    KMc, aka The Harpy, aka The MVP, was scoreless in the first 22.  Her wrist injury from last week clearly had a negative impact on her game and she wasn't swatting everything into the wall like she normally does. Jill Downer wasn't on the all-defensive team for nothing people! She was doing great work locking down the paint against the Harpy, Lyons, and Daisy Dukes.  Just great work all around.

    But KMc is the MVP for a reason. She snapped out of it in a big way in the second half.  Hell someone had to eventually score for this squad! Loren was worried about getting to work, Tory was, i don't know, worried about Scal's future in Boston or elsewhere, and the team was out of sync (yes still).

    but WoWW didn't just fade way.  Fenn was s till hitting shots (3 3s in the 2nd), Downer hit her free throws and Becky started to be money from mid range.  With Kim finding the hot hand, they stuck close.  So close, in face that Fenn's 3, with 3 minuttes left, gave WoWW a 37-35 lead.  Katie was the only one scoring for CAC Me

    Back and forth we went.  A Britt steal (and 2 free throws, she'd hit her first 5 before going 1-3 down the stretch, shhhh), freebies by Jill to tie it at 39, then a Becky break away to give WoWW a 2 point lead with a minute left.

    Then let's fastforward past all the missed free throws.  There were a bunch.  But again, CAC Me ended up shooting 22 on the night, more than Koz EVER called for any of you!  Somehow CACWoWW was up a point.  They just had to hold on for the final 10 seconds and they'd improbably advance to the Finals.  No one saw this coming. The crowd was PUMPED up, everyone had been cheering all game, just great support by the WoWW(ettes?!)

    Alas, it was 10 seconds too long. The MVP had the ball in her hands and wasn't giving it up.  A silky smooth KG-esque long jumper gave her team the winning margin as time ticked away. 

    Just a hell of a fight and near colossal upset by CACWoWW and definitely one of the best women's games I've been a part of (from the sidelines, you all would torch me).  Great effort by WoWW, we hope to see you next season!

    If CAC Me doesn't bring better offense next week (8:30 PM @ Winter Hill) they'll be in trouble against TENacious.
