Fall YMCA Basketball, Week 9

We have just finished the 9th week of the season. One more set of games next Wednesday, then we take a hiatus until the playoffs which begin on Wednesday, January 3rd.

FREE BALLIN VS. ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES

This was a very interesting game in that Free Ballin had EJ back but no Zack or Nick M. The Edges ran with just four for most of the night; fortunately one of them was Terrance. Free Ballin featured a multi-pronged attack led by Brandon who was both play maker and point-maker with 17 points and 7 assists. The bulk of the points came from EJ who is back from a sprained ankle. Nick P. added 13 including four treys, and Dereke phi slamma jamma-ed 3 times along the way to 12 points. Wil Blades added his trey.

Jeremy got shut out (for the first time). Felix downed a triple and one layup. Gabe added a 2. The Free Ballin defense managed to lock Terrance for only 59 points, six less than his last game versus Z-Team. Once again, it wasn’t quite enough. Free Ballin bounced into the 3rd seed in the playoffs with a 71-69 win.

The Glory were led by Joel who tied or set a new record for treys with 13 for the night, many of them contested and at least one banked in. He poured in 44 points. Abner also set a personal best with 33 points. Joe grabbed 13 rebounds to lead all players for the night. Patrick scored six but he also dished for 8 assists to go along with 5 more great passes that should have led to scores. Final score: Team Caldwell 117 – 89 Morning Glory.
