To close out the regular season we had some great games. Here’s a quick recap of what went down.
In this first game, The Investment Academy went to work on a shorthanded Hardwood Nemesis team. The trio of Michalski, Dahnoun and Edwards outscored HWN as they combined for 69 points. Each of them had arguably their best games of the season in the win. HWN had a tough time on the glass and did not have their full squad.
The second game was a good as it gets. Classick and The Fraternity went back and forth all game. This is the first time Penola and Goodridge played against their former teams. Ahsan Mahmood scored 23 and iced a pair of free throws to put this game out of reach. Great all-around game for Kirk Daly in the loss with 6-13-11.
In the third game, possibly the biggest upset of the season. The Titans handed Grind Time their first loss of the season in a 51-47 win. Jason Miller had a ball game with 21-16 and Dave Robertson was super clutch with 16 points on 6/7 shooting. Grind Time struggled on both ends of the floor, however, keep the #1 seed thanks to their tie-breaker win.
In the final game, Swish Squad made a courageous effort in the 2nd half but they fell short losing by 4. Zac Bendahan with 21 and D'Andre Hospedales with 20 in the victory. Craig Hanson had a monster 25-16 in the loss.
