Grind Time controlled from the early stages of the game and never looked back. Grind Time utilized the entire roster getting production from every single player in a team win over Box Out. Jonathan Harvden went off for 21-10-3-3 and Norman Penola added 9-9-4-3 in the W. Grind Time looked very comfortable throughout the game and outhustled Box Out on the glass by a margin of 14. D'Andre Hospedales once again was the only player to score in double digits and this has to be a concern for GM Calvin Lee. Box Out only shot 33% from the floor and that needs to change if they plan on turning this season around.
SWISH jumped out to a double digit lead and held on. SWISH picked up their first W of the season while The Investment Academy took their first loss. Matthew Walker (not known for his offensive skills) finished with a team best 15 points including 3 of 4 from beyond the arc and 8 boards in the win. Both teams struggled from the field and The Investment Academy pretty much lost this game at the line missing 12 free throws. KWE led TIA with 19 points but he was the only player in double digits.
This game was all What’s Luv in the 1st half as they jumped out to a 18 point at the halftime break. UNRULY was without 3 players and did not have enough tank in the gas to recover in the 2nd half. Rookie Jevon Jacobs was nice in his 2nd game scoring a game high 23 points including 4 of 8 from 3pt range. McDonald added 17 and Nettey chipped in with 16. For Unruly they got lots of production from their 5 guys, but obviously not enough. Jeff Asiamah with an all-around line of 18-12-7 in the loss. Gulam and Bendahan also with double doubles.
