2017 – 2018 Men’s League Week6 Results

on Nov 21, 2017 in Basketball, League, Men's Basketball, Stats

Takeaways from Week6   Game1 – was a dandy!  Back and forth affair with league leading players going at it. Both teams had firepower and size but in the end Gold managed a 3 pt victory. Balanced scoring from Gold and Carolina with their big three of Dave-Karmal-Peter did most of the damage. Watch for these two in the February playoffs wk6-gm1   Game2 – Team White’s energy always a given and the 20 pt victory over Green bumped them to 2nd place in the power rankings. Francis brought the heat early, Santi, Chadley and Joseph put in the finishing touches. Without Ervin once again, Franz and Joel was left to carry the load without much help from others wk6-gm2   Game3 – Royal Team might as well play 2 on 5 if Afan (40pts) and Noman (30pts) drops every night. Obviously, guys are not doing their scouting reports. Ford with a late push in the second half was not enough to get Purple a win wk6-gm3...

2017 – 2018 Men’s League Week4 Results

on Nov 8, 2017 in Basketball, League, Men's Basketball, Stats

Takeaways from Week4 Team Carolina’s triple threat of Dave, Karmal and Peter was too much to handle for the Team Red and ultimately handing them their first loss of the season. Great battle of the bigs but Dave got the advantage on this run, would love to see these guys battle it out in the playoffs. Ian from Team Red was well on his way to being the high point man but Carolina adjusted well in the second half even with Rio’s 3 triples in the second half. The ‘Lemon Lime’ match up of Green vs Gold started off well but Green’s defense was no match to Gold’s youth, speed and intensity. Robert with the big first half and then MJ finished them off in the second. You would think with 5 triples from Ervin and 6 from Joel they would pull out the victory but still not enough. Again proving that this league just went a few levels above the average. Gold remains undefeated while Green, non-defeated. The White vs Grey showdown was a back and forth affair. Denni from Grey was solid all night but Richard from Team White said ‘Enuff of this’ in the second half and went on a barrage of steals, lay ups free throws … scoring 15 in the second. Gino and Chadley brought the dawgs out and played each shift to the fullest! Shotcharts   wk4-gm1 wk4-gm2 wk4-gm3...

Takeaways from Week3 Team White gets their first win of the season Low scoring affair between Grey and Gold, with Gold icing late game freethrows The defending champs lose their first game with a barrage of 3pointers from the usual suspects in Afan, Myro and Noman from team Royal Shotcharts   wk3-gm1 wk3-gm2 wk3-gm3...

2017 – 2018 Men’s League Week2 Results

on Oct 30, 2017 in Basketball, League, Men's Basketball, Stats

Takeaways from Week2   Short roster and foul trouble early for team Royal did not get them off to a good start Noman’s rookie debut with 17pts. Team Red is now riding high with 2-0 start with big games from Ian and Christian Carolina’s big man with a league night high of 37 most of them in the paint, gonna be a problem to all teams all year! Peter also knocked down 20 pts on the 80 – 57 victory over Green. Ervin with the early foul trouble limited Green’s ability to come back. Now Green is 0 – 2. You know that saying ‘All that glitters is not gold!” well in week3 it was! with a 33 pt blowout of Team Purple, these new youngbloods have all the firepower the league needs to pay attention to.

on Oct 23, 2017 in Basketball, League, Men's Basketball, Stats

Takeaways from Week1 Red team started off on a good note, Pat hitting multiple 3s, Green team missing Ervin and Dexter. Grey and Carolina almost hit overtime, 0.7 secs left with a chance to take the game to overtime, Jun missed foul shots. Very conflicting styles but entertaining to watch Black and White Tuxedo game was also up and down.

Men’s League Winter 2016-2017 Playoffs Round 1 Results

on Mar 7, 2017 in Basketball, Basketball Blog, Events, Men's Basketball

  Game1 – Black at Gold   Takeaways: Ervin put on his cape in the last two minutes and told his teammates “fellas, get on my back and I’ll take us to the promise land!”. I can tell he didn’t want to end the season. He was the only Gold player to score in the 4th with 9pts, none bigger than the 3 with 4 seconds left to take it to OT. Joel and Edward also chipped in 2 each in the extra frame to put the game out of reach Black’s season comes to an end but this was their best outing to date. Big game from Richard but it was not enough late in the game when they failed to foul in those last 4 seconds as they had multiple fouls to give wk11-rd1playoffs Game2 – Green at Purple   Takeaways: This game also did not disappoint! With 1 second left, Richard from Team purple got a clean look out of a sideline inbound play but just a wide left, ball game! Green moves on to the next round and upsets Purple. Green put a lot of pressure on Purple forcing a lot of fouls. With 4 fouls, Santi still managed to drop 23. Richard’s 14 was inspirational but Green proved to be more experienced down the stretch. Even though it was chippy at the start, both teams managed to settle down and get right down to business. Bal’s big layup after a timeout was huge and Purple without any timeouts left can’t regroup. Green now gets the honour of playing Team Red, another upset looming?...

He finished with 35 and Black could not stop him and his partner Afan with his own 27. Myro struggled but Kanav was mugging players all night with 6 steals Even with Ian and Mike scoring 14, Christian and crew could not overcome the barrage of 3s game stats Game2 – Purple at Green (“Don’t Mess with the Ref-Roland Edition”)   Takeaways: Relatively easy night for the Purple squad with the automatic default win as once again Green continued to struggle with their roster. Who steps in, Roland decides to lace it up and show some of the youngbloodz how to score 28! 6 for 12 beyond the arc and 5 for 9 inside. I’ll bet someone will pic this ref up on their squad next season. Arvin was Picasso all night with his paintbrush finishes in the paint all night and dropping 23 in the losing effort. Marcus, Santi and Robin did not take the game lightly and continued with their attack scoring at least 20pts each. game stats Game3 – Gold at Carolina (“Ervin-Effect Edition”)   Takeaways: Carolina was coasting until Ervin showed up! Gold had a balanced attack with huge contributions from Bob’s 11 and Edward’s 12. Carolina relied on Kevin, Alejandro and Allan all night. With full court press in place, a late come back was spoiled with a big three from Marwin. game...

Odd stat, Black team out-rebounded Carolina on the offensive boards 12-2 and still loses game. Overall the difference was on the charity stripes with Carolina making 15 of 20 game stats Game2 – Green at Red (“Trade Edition”)   Takeaways: A first for the league, with only four players on Green, Red gave up Afan combined with two other guests and allowed the game to count. Those guests combined for 43 of the 70 points scored hence the victory Myro went bananas with his 25 for the Red team but it was clear they needed their MVP Afan as they couldn’t pull out the victory, staining their perfect record With 14 steals and 15 more points inside the arc, Green was able to pull out the win game stats Game3 – Gold at Purple (“Santi-Tekounmpo Edition”)   Takeaways: Another close game between this LA LA Land matchup! It was back and forth with these two squads and it was enjoyable to watch Marwin extending his range hitting 2 3’s while Murphy was ‘Sherwin-Williams’ all night ….. doing all his work in the paint dropping 15. Santi-Tekounmpo put his team on his back and delivered but the unsung hero late was Joseph hitting 6 for 6 on the free throw line ultimately making the game out of reach for Gold game...

Soundbites from Rio before his game with Macky, “No Mercy!” He wasn’t lying because Team Black finally gets their first win of the season! On the expense of a Pat injury though 🙁 Get well with that ankle sprain Pat! I think Richard, Rick and Mike were the difference makers with Ian breaking out with 18 points. Good team effort on this night so it paid off. game stats Game2 – Carolina at Purple (“Old Bloodz vs Young Bloodz Edition”)   Takeaways: Another OT thriller for the Purple squad but this time losing out on the veteran Carolina team. A little biased you may say but this was an up and down game with multiple lead changes. The Kevin and Dee show kept Carolina close and ultimately winning in OT. Chris A hit a big left corner three to hush the naysayers and Dee had the block of the year! He must have had R. Kelly’s “I believe I can fly” track on heavy rotation. Charlie pulled out a flu game performance with his 11 pts. Carolina was huffin and puffin without Allan and Alejandro for sure. Team Purple was happy to get Richard back and he was gang-busters all night dropping shots from midrange to 3 pointers to drives to the hoop. Complete game but just fell short. The bucket exchange leading up to overtime was bananas. Santi attacked the paint with his 12. Jose continues to hit big late game shots and also put the lock down on Charles on the last play forcing overtime. game stats Game3 – Red at Gold (“Chef Afan with the shot boi!”)   Takeaways: Highest score in a game, in the history of the league was posted on this night! Give it up for Afan for dropping 48 on the Gold squad that I thought had a chance to finally give this team their first lost Ervin was dropping cross overs left and right, while the Murphy-Joel connection converted on multiple 3pointers Red team continues to set the shooting bar high, you must pick them up at half court because you never know they might pull up on you at half. Myro was cold for the night but that didn’t matter because someone needed to hose down the office of Saleem-Saddique because it was on fire! Afan hit 10 3s while Hamza finished with 5.  Kanav’s best game so far with high efficiency of going 6 for 9 Don’t be shocked, but the game is evolving …. Team Red went 16 for 57 3 pointers. Yes that’s 57 attempted 3 pointers, 3ball is the new dunk! game stats This is what it feels like when you’re playing this Red...

Jose with a big left corner three to take it to first overtime and ‘Santi’ Claus delivered the presents for the black team in the second overtime with a huge 3 of his own, ballgame! If you had 6 more turnovers and did not protect the boards from 15 offensive big ones then there’s a good chance you might loose. Team black hopes 2017 will be a whole different story game stats Game2 – Red at Carolina   Takeaways:   ‘Battle of the Undefeated’ went down as a classic with Carolina getting a chance to tie late in the game but fell short with some questionable calls 🙂 Red went 19 for 37 in 3-pointers, apparently Carolina didn’t get the memo that these are a group of snipers, with Myro and Hamza leading the attack. Afan was somewhat contained with his below average 18pts Rd 2 of round robin should be awesome! With Carolina missing a couple of key pieces in Dee and Alejandro, they still managed to keep this game close. Kevin finished with 25 while Charles finished with 16 Red was so efficient that they took 11 less shots than the opponent and still took got the victory, team to beat for sure as they remain perfect for the season! game stats Game3 – Green at Gold   Takeaways:   Hats  off the the green team as this proved to be the upset of the night! Considering they didn’t have their big man in Carlo, Nowell stepped up with 12 boards to help out the squad. Ford continues his super efficient performance shooting 9-for-13, nearly 70%. Bal lit it up with his 5 3-pointers Ervin “Tim Hortons” Campbell did his usual damage, with double-doubles! 22 pts, 17 boards and 7 assists ….. I have no doubt he will get the triple dip before the season is over. Keep in mind Dexter and Marwin was not dressed for this game and gold really needs Bob back from that ankle injury but Alvin Sr. played a huge part in this game with his 12 pts game summary is almost even across the board but green hitting more 3’s I think was the difference game...

on Dec 17, 2016 in Basketball, Basketball Blog, Events, Fall Ball, Men's Basketball

Game1 – Black at Gold Takeaways: Rio stepped up for team black this week scoring 12 on 4 3 pointers, still not enough with Christian’s 20 to get them their first win for the season Big night for Alvin Jr. scoring 19 for team gold having a super efficient game going 8 for 11 inside the arc Murphy chipped in with 10, while Ervin did his usual with 17 and monster 19 on the boards looking at the side by side, the black team’s loss could be caused by having more turnovers game stats   Game2 – Purple at Red Takeaways: Purple squad is also quickly realizing this league is no joke as they too are facing an 0 and 3 start. Lots of fouls committed got the Red team in early bonus The Red ‘Huskies’ of North Delta continued to howl with their main scorers in Afan (28), Hamza (22) and Kanav (16). Can they go 4-0 in week4? This is what you call a ‘volume’ game, between the two teams … 45 shots converted out of 123! Whoa, good thing we don’t have a shot clock in this league game stats     Game3 – Carolina at Green Takeaways: Give the game ball to Carlo for team green in week3, 7 for 8 in the field finishing with 14pts. Louie finally came and dropped 8 pts for his first game with the squad Give the game ball to James for team carolina, James went off with 24 pts going 7 for 15 beyond the arc. Even with a depleted roster, all players scored that night and found a way to win, together. They remain 3 and 0. game...

Did not help when Joel went 0 for 9 beyond the arc. game stats     Game3 – Green at Purple Takeaways The trio of Bal (13), Ford (13) and Macky (12) took care of business against the youngbloodz The trio of Jose (12), Santi (12) and Richard (14) did not get enough help for the rest of the squad, now they find themselves 0 and 2 to start the season game...

on Dec 13, 2015 in Men's Basketball

The tables are set for your ‘Road to the Finals’ matchups Playing for 3rd and 4th – Blue vs Black, tipoff at 8:15pm Playing for 1st and 2nd – Grey vs Red, tipoff at 9:15pm Here’s what went down on Week#7 Takeaways: Ian and Christian Apanay your usual suspects for Red with 20 and 14 respectively. Even though Jass, Mark and Ford in double digit scoring they still couldn’t stop the Red Army. Difference definitely from the free throw line with Red making 17 to Blue’s 7. Red gets the match up they want for a third time to get a win against the Grey squad. Grey definitely turned up the defense come playoff time by shutting down Bal to 2pts. They also had a well-balanced attack with the return of Kit and Rondo’s all around game of rebounds, scoring and steals. Ryan and Allan had an efficient night shooting with 61% and 72%. Announcements: Please stick around after each game for awards This will be the last ball session for 2015. The gym will be closed until we open up for open-gym runs in 2016 starting Monday, January 11. Happy Holidays everyone!

204 Men’s Basketball – Fall 2015 Week#6 Results

on Dec 4, 2015 in Men's Basketball

A buzzer beater to kick off the night! Takeaways: 1-pt victory for the Red squad, on a shot fake 3 pointer by Pat with 8 seconds left on the clock …… we call that Ice! Blue had the early lead and the return of Jass seemed like it was headed for a great ending, only to see their lead disappear. Way to ruin it for James’ MVP night with his 17 point performance! Allowing Ian and Christian Apanay on Red squad score 47 together and get out-rebounded by 20 is not a good thing for any team. You must respect every player in this league otherwise they will make you pay just like Pat did. I’d say Black team is peaking at the right time, when 4 guys score in double digits … you’re in trouble. Alejandro, Bal, Gil and Matthew went gangbusters on Grey. Missing Kit’s contributions for the Grey team became evident this game, Black squad just outplayed Grey and hit some big shots late in the game. It doesn’t help when you have 7 more turnovers and double the amount of fouls.

Teams ‘TAKE FLIGHT’ in Week#5   Takeaways: Michael from the Grey squad was firing on all cylinders with his 23 pts Joshua and Ford, the only Blue players in double digits with 10 and 11 respectively Grey team pulled out victory by out-rebounding and making free throws, this was the difference in the game Black team’s 3-ball threat and players that can finish in the paint will get them far in this league. Alejandro, Gil and Bal gives you a barrage of 3-pt and midrange shots while Matthew and Earl punish you in the paint. Bal, highlight night with 23pts Black’s effort was still not enough with Richard’s best game with 15 for the Red squad. Not to mention Rick’s 3 trifectas! Red team was just more efficient with their shooting and capitalized on free throw percentage See you all on Week#6   Boxscores and Shotcharts:  Game1: Blue vs Grey click here for download 204MensBasketball-Fall2015-Wk5Gm1 Game2: Black vs Red click here for download 204MensBasketball-Fall2015-Wk5Gm2...

204 Men’s Basketball – Fall 2015 Week#4 Results

on Nov 17, 2015 in Men's Basketball

    Week 4 was a dandy giving us two overtime games! Takeaways: Attention Black team: Scouting report on Harp is simple, guard the 3-ball. Looked like black team was close to getting their 2nd win but big 3s in the second half crushed that chance. Efficient once again with 6 for 10 shooting, with 4 out of 8 beyond the arc. Ford impressive with his own double double stat line of 18 pts, and 15 rebs, with 8 of those points coming from the free throw line. While Joshua went for volume with 7 out of 19 he still managed to bring the intensity. Rogelio with 3 steals for the night. Black and Blue went back and forth in game1 ….. Alejandro doing the double-dip with 20 pts and 11 rebounds. Those 20 pts came from 9 of 11 shooting. Dexter’s best game so far for the Blacks with 8 pts on the night. Gil and Nowell combined for 2 for 19 on the floor, this doesn’t happen often. Grey team needs to cancel their membership from the DeAndre Jordan school of free throws because they stunk up the gym! A lot of missed freebies on the charity stripe late in the game that could have prevented overtime. My name is Christian Apanay, you cannot post me, you cannot defend me, you cannot foul me, you can’t overplay me …….. and yeah you can’t guard my 3pt shot either! Can somebody please figure out this phenomenon! Thanks for dropping 24 pts on us, I was just joking when I said you only scored 19 on week3 🙂 Ian contributed with 21 pts and he was crossing up guys all night Allan’s best night so far with 13 pts. Welcome back Mike, out of the slump he scores 20 and 6 rebs Rock with two big threes in the second half Word of the night: Meta Ford Peace, EarlBron James See you all on Week#5   Reminders: I know some of y’all get excited over the stats and such but please refrain from checking in with the scorekeeping team to allow them to do their job as efficient as possible. Absolutely, no disruption of the scorekeepers during games, in between timeouts, in between game warm ups. They are constantly making sure that scores and stats match up so if you’re interested in checking how well or how bad you did that night, please wait till the night is over or till the blog post happens. The way I see it, you wouldn’t want these guys to be distracted and miss out on a point or a stat from your team would you? Also, St. B is not a big gym so please make sure they have clear line of sight with the game action as well as the referees so they can document proper fouls and stat. Thanks for understanding ballers!

204 Men’s Basketball – Fall 2015 Week#3 Results

on Nov 16, 2015 in Men's Basketball

Week 3 proved to be another close one with victories from the Black and Blue Takeaways: The return of Joshua was the difference with Blue’s victory. With 17 pts, he was able to cover a lot of real estate and scored buckets from multiple spots on the floor. TJ and James also in double digits to balance out the attack. Black squad struggled behind Ryan’s 19 who had a chance late in the game to tie. The defending champs now have their backs against the wall with the announcement of Kit’s fractured finger injury, out for the season! The return of Ian added 10 pts for the night but Christian Apanay logged less than his average with 19. Still a great output but they could not sustain Black’s hustle. Welcome back Alejandro! Just like Joshua, his fresh legs and youth was the difference to this already hustle-and-flow offense. It was him, Earl and Gil that scored double digits for the night and was very efficient on the floor. Don’t sleep on this team as they have the long ball and NBA-like 3-pt percentages of 42% Gil and 38% Bal See you all on Week#4 Boxscores and Shotcharts:  Game1: Grey vs Blue click here for download 204MensBasketball-Fall2015-Wk3Gm1 Game2: Red vs Black click here for download 204MensBasketball-Fall2015-Wk3Gm2 Upcoming...

204 Men’s Basketball – Fall 2015 Week#2 Results

on Nov 8, 2015 in Basketball Blog, Men's Basketball

Week 2 brought us some exciting games once again. Close game between Red and Blue squads, while the defending champs had 11 deep on game night.   Takeaways: Players of the week goes to Christian Apanay and Kit with 30 and 24 respectively Red team needs more production from Richard and the rest of the squad to help out the reigning league MVP Jass’ first game for the Blue was a solid output with 15 , and Mark B’s monster 20 boards kept the team close. Ford and James also had their best games with 11 each. I think overall well balanced just not enough to get the victory over points in the paint from Red team. Black’s attack with Gil, Bal and Matthew fell short as well with Grey’s full squad of 11 on Monday night. Earl had an off night and that had an impact but I think bringing in Alejandro should add more firepower to the black attack on week 3. Kit for the Grey team single handedly controlled the tempo of this game and Mr. Consistency delivers yet again.

Here are some of the takeaways: Takeaways: first game with Blue and Black showcased both team’s abilities to shoot the ball. Harp is proving to be the ringer of the year. Welcome back James! second game had Mike and Christian going head to head …. remember both were previous League MVPs! Christian opens the season just like he left it, scoring buckets! 30 pts on the stat sheet is not a bad way to start. Don’t really have an award for Defensive Player of the League but TJ has it won by sacrificing his body on opening night. Injury update: TJ (elbow) and Metta “Ford” Peace  (shoulder) got banged up on opening night so we await to see if they’re a scratch for week2. James Har”Dean” was held scoreless so looking for him to bounce back. The draft never lies! Overall, any of the teams can win on any given night in this well balanced league. No easy path to greatness as they say.

Men’s Basketball – The 2014 Finals

on Nov 23, 2014 in Men's Basketball

Game#1: 3rd Place Final – Silver vs Red   Silver continued to play short handed to end their season and it cost them once again. Silver came short with a last minute 3ball to win and this year just didn’t have enough to get over the late heroics from Red. Silver finishes the league with back to back losses while Red bounces back from the semis game vs Purple.   Takeaways:   Red’s leading scorer in Chris Asuncion was forced to be a cheerleader due to a hamstring injury Joshua’s line, 7 for 15 scoring 15 pts TJ”s line, 4 for 14 scoring 12 pts Matthew’s line, 8 for 18 scoring 18 pts TJ and Rondon with 11 steals combined Best game for Andrew with 8 pts Christian did his usual damage, 10 for 14 scoring 21 pts Brad and Daniel with 16 and 17 Red out-rebounds Silver 44 – 35 Silver with 7 more turnovers Big congrats to Christian Apanay for ‘cleaning house’ with multiple awards …. League Leading Scorer and MVP! Check out the boxscores and highlights!   Game#2: 1st Place Final – Black vs Purple ‘The Main Event’   The main event did not disappoint. Black thought they had the game in the bag but with a late barrage of 3point buckets from Purple it seemed like the comeback was going to be complete. Black had other plans with continuous attack to the hoop and excellent rebounding for easy transition scores.   Takeaways:   Ian Alcoreza went 7 for 20 ending with 17 pts No one else scored more than 6 pts for Purple team, didn’t get enough production from the rest as most of their pts came in the second half No Starvin for points with Ryan’s stat line, 11 for 22 scoring 27 pts Lou hit a three! Charles put in 11 pts and a monstrous night on the boards with 19 total rebounds Kit solid with his 14 pts Allan and Charles’ Block party with combined 5 blocks Purple team had a tough shooting night with 17 for 71 Check out the boxscores and highlights!   Just wanna give a big shoutouts to my family for always supporting this passion and I truly couldn’t make this league work without them. I’m always in the lab with them coming up with ideas for keeping this league fresh! #mamacee4luvs, #killah.ink, #58prblmz, and #kairamoore …. I Love You Guys! Thanks to our committed referees as well for keeping games classy! See you all in the...

204 Customs Men’s Basketball – 2014 Fall Week7

on Nov 9, 2014 in Men's Basketball

Game1: Purple Advances to the Finals! Purple team’s deep roster was the difference this game plus the guard play from their young bloods. Red tried to catch up but a little too late. Takeaways: Christian Amurao saved his best game of the season with 4 for 5 shooting ending with 10pts Red’s top guns in TJ and Chris Ascunsion had a rough outing TJ 1 for 8 Chris 4 for 20 Matthew and Rondon did their usual disruption of defence and boards Patrick went 2 for 3 from long distance Outside shooting from Ervin and Christian A did a lot of damage. Let me guess Bal is going to show up for the Finals! 🙂 Check out the boxscores and highlights!   Game2: No repeat for the Silver team in 2014. With a depleted roster losing their two bigs they had a big task ahead of them to advance. They had the momentum going into the second half with Christian Apanay’s buzzer beater to put them up 6 but Black put on the pressure to go on a run of their own. Better outlet and fastbreak for the Black team and I think that was the difference. Takeaways: Black with 16 steals and 6 blocks, good defensive effort Silver with 20 turnovers Held Rio scoreless Brad with 19, Christian with 18 Black team with 13 assists to Silver’s 4 ……. big shift from previous games Ryan D, Mark S, Prab and Rick B’s presence was definitely missed! Check out the boxscores and highlights!  ...

204 Customs Men’s Basketball – 2014 Fall Week6

on Oct 9, 2014 in Men's Basketball

Game1: “Silver is the new Black”   I swear to God I thought I was looking at my Grade9 team’s shot chart. Black continues to struggle in the points department with now a 2-game losing streak. A lot of missed lay-ups in the paint would have kept the game close but we gotta figure out a way to move that ball more often. It got physical early and it sustained because the game ended with 27 fouls total between the two teams. For a while I thought Daniel was playing a baseball game cuz he sure looked like he was playing a perfect game. Imagine going 5 for 5 in 2pt range, 1 for 1 in 3pt range, 4 for 6 on the free-throw line, 4 rebs, 3 helpers and 1 steal ………… WOW, impeccable efficiency! Daniel, whatever you had prior to that game, please do the exact opposite before the semis, Black don’t need a stat line like that again. Brad could have been playing for In-N-Out Burgers with his version of a double-double, he served up 24 pts and 17 rebs! Quiet night for Christian (good to see him take a 3pt shot),  The Bal Brothers were like Windex, great for cleaning the glass … with 17 boards together. No wonder they walked away with the 69-54 victory. Click here for the box scores and shot chart   Takeaways: Jeff and Louie for the Black team held scoreless Allan fouled as much as he scored, I commend his courage in battling down in the low block. I know it’s hard buddy! Charles 0 for 12 in 2pt range, unheard of! Ryan and Charles combined for 48 shots! Brad and Daniel led the attack and the role players stepped up Rick had 2nd most shot attempt for Silver with 11 (Brad with 16) and continues to fall in love with that corner 3ball Mark S scores 7 off the bench Rio is off this game enjoying his Tea’s and Crumpets   Game2: Ian the “Iceman” makes his debut   Team Purple is on a 3 game winning streak! Ian’s breakout party was quite the performance. Regulation time was not enough to settle the score and this game came down to heart and effort. Lot’s of ups and downs and I’ll bet that was more entertainment than your Raptors and Kings pre-season game from Sunday. The difference to Ian’s game that night was that he never settled for the 3. He could have been called the Ginsu knife, because of his ability to cut through the defense and score And1 after And1’s. He went 7 for 12 inside the arc and 9 for 12 on the free-throw line, sounds like a Karl Malone stat line. Alejandro also did some damage with 19 of his own, 6 for 8 in 2pt range and 2 for 4 outside the arc. It reminded me of the Twilight Movie series … young vampires out for blood! Ian, Alejandro and Jas killed it with 50 of the team’s 64 pts. Joshua started the game off hot and ended up with 11 pts on 5 for 5 inside the arc and big 3pt shot in the second half. MVP for the Red team was Matthew hands down. He brought the rebounding energy at key moments in the game none bigger than the offensive putback to send the game into OT. Chris Ascuncion took that final shot early in the shot clock with about 5-seconds left in overtime. I think they could have gotten a better shot than a fading-left distance 3 but he vowed that he would come back with a vengeance. I can’t wait for the rematch during the semis! Click here for the box scores and shot chart   Takeaways: Jeff fouls out early and forced to watch the game with 6 mins left, ow my bad add another 3 mins on top of that because of overtime I realized that James and Dexter would rather dance than be in the game 🙂 Pretty impressive display of moves gentlemen If I told you Gil only scored 2 pts would you believe me they still won the game? 2 big free throws that is! TJ’s only score was a comeback 3pt shot late in the game, not enough to get the team over the hump Rondon must have numerous burglary records because he added 5 steals to his defensive reputation Good to see Iggy back!

204 Customs Men’s Basketball – 2014 Fall Week5

on Oct 1, 2014 in Men's Basketball

Game1: Black vs Purple – “Purple Rain”   It’s rainy season! Purple’s 45% shooting from 3pt range did the Black team in, not to mention running with only six players. With Allan, Marwin, Ramil and Dean out of the lineup Gil and James decided to have their breakout game with 3 and 4 3pointers respectively. Alejandro bounces back with 17 of his own. The main difference in this game came down to long-distance shooting, with Black team resorting to zone-defense, they refuse to recognize the streak shooting of the Purple team and failed to close out early to those shooters. Also noticing the ball sticking in Black’s offense with less ball movement, it kills me not being out there with the troops. This game is all about adjustments so we’ll see come playoffs how both teams adjust. Great job Purple team for handing Black team their first loss! It was either Purple Rain or Make It Rain ….. I didn’t think the latter was appropriate, I would think that’s more for their celebration if they win the championship. Stay tuned. Notables: Mike (18), Kit (14) and Ryan (11) as the usual suspects for the Black team Alejandro (17), Gil (15) and James (12) made it rain late in September Jeff U almost gets a double-double with 8 pts and 10 rebs Jas and Bal with their efficient 60% shooting in the field (Jas we gotta work on those air balls bruh!) Click here for boxscores and shotcharts!   Game2: Silver vs Red – “The Hunt for Red October”   The Red team is hawngry! With the streak they’re in since the return of Chris Ascuncion in the lineup, October could be the month where they gain momentum into the playoffs. What does that tell you when Rondon scores only one point the whole game but still manage to pull out a victory against the defending champs? …… That’s called teamwork! Everybody hit the box scores, including Carlo …… officially the team’s new Cheerleader and Mascot! Way to get the crowd hyped! Silver continues to struggle with 19 turnovers and contributing to 20 steals by the Red team, they were lucky to extend it to overtime but just wasn’t enough and perhaps unprepared for the constant full-court press the tireless Red team unleashed on them. Notables: Chris A with 23 pts Mathew with 11 pts Patrick snaked around the paint with 10 But TJ, damn! .750 shooting percentage going 3  for 3 inside the arc and 3 for 5 outside Rondon alone got 9 steals Rick L getting into double digits with 10 Brad with hard-earned 20 Christian “the softest-hand in the business” Apanay with 16 Click here for boxscores and shotcharts!

204 Customs Men’s Basketball – 2014 Fall Week4

on Sep 26, 2014 in Men's Basketball

Game1: Black vs Red – “no Dean, no problem” Black goes on an early run causing the red team to call an early timeout. Red then goes on a run of their own and almost evens things up at half, 30-29. Good all around play for both teams for the first half. Red team managed to stay close with their ball movement on the zone defense but then the ‘Kit’ factor kicked in … with his savvy drives to the hoop, the clever guard went 5 for 7 on the charity stripe. The trio of Chris Ascuncion (19), Rondon(12) and Carlo(9) did most of the damage with Matthew(8) not far behind.  The black team had a balanced attack with Ryan(13), Kit(12), Marwin and Allan (9each), and Charles(8). Injury news: Ramil will be out for the season due to a severe right-ankle sprain that will leave him cheering on the sidelines for the next few months …. ouch it hurts to write that! Click here for box scores!   Game2: Purple vs Silver – “Mr. Consistency” Another classic showdown with physicality written all over it. I don’t know what it is with this purple team with playing close games in the end. I’m thinking this is going to be a dangerous team in the playoffs. Their record may now show it but they could beat you with that deep roster. Alejandro had an off night but his teammates stepped up namely Ervin(10), Bal(9), Jeff(8). This is supposed to be a shooter’s dream team but the long range bombs are being contested and passes are not making its way around the horn efficiently and this is why we’re not seeing more 3pt success. The defending champs are finding out the hard way how difficult it is to defend a championship. With their hard-nosed shooting guard, Ryan D, possibly out for the rest of the season according to league sources, the silver team will need to step up the D and start climbing back up the rankings. With Brad and Christian in double-digits, a depleted front-court … they’re gonna need a lot more help from that formidable front court. They have great consistency in Christian(19) and Brad(11) but need more production from the rest of the team. But this team will figure it out so don’t count them out.

204 Customs Men’s Basketball – 2014 Fall Week3

on Sep 17, 2014 in Men's Basketball

Game 1: Red vs Purple – “the Comeback” With a 34-12 lead at half time you would think the Red team would be doing the ‘Shmoney’ dance en route to a win. But hold up, here comes Bal (5 for 11), Ervin (5 for 10) and Jass (5 for 8)! The comeback  would have been complete but Chris Ascunsion had other plans. Returning from his Mexican vacation, he brought out the Aztec in him with a padded stat line of 22pts, 6 rebs, 3 steals and a block, not to mention 3 for 4 behind the arc. Good to see TJ back with 16 of his own and help close this one out with the team! Click here for game stats! Game 2: Black vs Silver – “no love for Dean” Black and Silver usually means Raider nation but this game was like a Football injury stat line. Marwin’s knee and Ryan’s heel could be costly for both teams. We wish them well and a healthy recovery. Black focused on Brad (2 for 18) because it was obvious nobody could stop Christian (55%). The black attack consisted of Charles (18pts), Kit (16pts) and Ryan (13pts). Jeff with a breakout game of 8 pts made up for a scoreless Mike and Marwin. Dean was clearly fouled and should have been on the free-throw line, that would have at least drawn some cheers from the crowd. The trio of Christian (23pts), Brad (13pts, 9 of 11 at the line) and Rio (12pts) was not enough to get the win. I’m sure game #2 of this series will be primetime just before the playoffs!
