Wins by Scrap Attack and Tropics, coupled with losses by Trees and Deadly Venoms, have created a five-way tie for first in the Melvin Franklin Division with just one week left in the regular season. Scrap Attack got 22 points from Johnny Williams in a 71-51 win over Benchwarmers. Meanwhile, Tropics edged Sour Patch Kids, 70-68 to join the others atop the Division.
Trees were dropped by Young Gunz, 75-50, and Venoms gave David Ruffin Division co-leader Heroes all they could handle in an exciting 106-101 loss. Jon Brogan had 36 points for Heroes, while Marcus Campbell tossed in 33 in a losing effort for Venoms.
In other games, former Player of the Week Dylan Johnson scored 27 points in leading Illuminati to a 91-75 win over Lambert Legends. Gabriel Verdugo had 23 point on six threes for the Legends. Stephen Salaz had 18 points to lead W.O.B.S. over Straight Pippen. I messed up in an earlier post in identifying W.O.B.S. as Wizards Of Ball Street. They are actually Wolves Of Ball Street. Sorry.
We are taking the next two Sundays off while the high school has the gym floor resurfaced. We will return on August 10 with the last week of regular-season games. The single-elimination playoffs begin August 17 and continue through August 31. Because we had so many teams this season and because of the two-week layoff, the championship games will be played on Labor Day Weekend. It's not the first time that has happened, but I generally try to avoid it. The next (Fall 2014) season begins on September 7th and runs through mid-December.
Please don't forget. When we come back on August 10, the only thing allowed in the gym will be water. No food, no snacks, no Gatorade, Powerade, or energy drinks. And no exceptions.Thank you for your cooperation.
One last thing: The school got a complaint about people hanging around in the parking lot, blasting music from a car stereo. As the saying goes, when the game is over, you don't necessarily have to go home, but you have to get on up outta' here. Please don't linger in the parking lot. It reflects badly on the League and perhaps even threatens our relationship with the school. thanks.
