YMCA 2017 Basketball, Week 7

Z-TEAM VS. FREE BALLIN

For Z-Team, Paul Reiter came out firing. He ripped the nets for four treys in the first half before finishing with 8 triples for the evening. B. Riley had it going as well. Free Ballin got pushed back on their heels by the Z-Team onslaught. EJ was the closest thing that Free Ballin had to an anti-Paul. He made some nice mid-range shots to complement his finishes around the basket to finish with 29 points. Big Zack also had a very nice game knocking down contested shots from around the key and strong moves to the cup to finish with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Free Ballin’s Brandon stepped it up in second half in pursuit of the Zs. But the Z-Team support squad was strong with B. Riley putting up 26 points and some stout defense against much taller competition. Matt made some key shots around the basket in the second half. Nyima also came alive in the second half with three triples and some beautiful passing to Luke, Matt and Paul. Final score: Z-Team 89 – 85 Free Ballin.

ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES VS. MORNING GLORY

For those of you who have been following the weekly progress of the league, you know that Jeremy and his Rough Around the Edges crew have been struggling. They have had a hard time keeping their roster together among other things. Morning Glory has been an up and comer with an excellent line up of post players, guards and rebounders. The Rough Edges made some key acquisitions to bolster their line up. Felix is a power player known for his strong drives to the hoop. Terrance Wiley is a YMCA legend who can put the ball in the cup from anywhere. With the addition of these two players, the Rough Edges found their way…in a big way.

Terrance danced his way through the defense while lighting them up for 28 points. Felix powered his way to 15 points and 9 rebounds including a rainbow three that almost hit the gym ceiling before dropping in.  Angelo also had a career night with 23 points. Morning Glory was sorely missing their big man, Evan, who was stuck in Davis. They struggled to score. Jerry was the one highlight with 15 points. Rough Edges finally made their way to the win column. With their revamped line up, they are now poised to make a run at a playoff spot. Final Score: Rough Around the Edges 83 – 38 Morning Glory.
