Wednesday East (A) Division

Curt’s Brooklyn Ballers put away the Basket Weavers, 70-58. Marcel Esonwune dunked his way to 18 points and the MVP trophy as Curt, Marc and the gang added another chip to the trophy case. Regular season MVP Joe Willman had a game-high 21 for the Basket Weavers

Monday-Tuesday-Weds West 

Larsa Pippen’s Finest proved that they might need to up their standards again with their second-straight Championship since the re-open, as they soundly defeat undermanned Team Cross (who dealt with some untimely late-season injuries) 83-54.  

Monday North Division

The Revival capped their spirited playoff run proving that age is just a number. New additions Tom Leahy and Dan Fallon combined with captain Josh Singer for 49 points as crowd favorites Larry Bottles couldn’t keep up. Final Score: 76-57.

Monday Central Division:

Gummy Bears got sticky with the defense and ran away with another title (even without George’s customary 5 fouls) to push aside Insight Hoops 75-48 in the Atlantic Division. Meanwhile, Knibb High Football truly threw it back to the 90’s, gutting out a 34-32 slugfest over the Shanghai Sharks to win the Pacific Division.

Thursday Atlantic Division

In arguably the best game of the night, Molly’s Men – in front of friends and family, and possibly even Molly herself – outlasted the Bluejays, playing for their injured captain in crutches, Troy Williams. The Kriftcher bros made good on the family name combining for 31 points with help from the crew (Tom, Travis, etc) to claim their first ever Basketball City title. 

Tuesday-Wednesday League

Brigade Capital, just 3-5 in the regular season, took home their 3rd title thanks to a barrage of 3’s from 2x MVP, George Karis in the first half, then holding on for a 73-67 win over Sweet Tarts in the Northwest Division. George hit 9 triples in total.

#2 Team Hussle and #1 The Postmen put on a show in the tightly-contested Northeast Division title game, and while the boys from the burg gave it a go until the very end, it was Team Hussle and their Captain, Jae Seo (23 points, MVP) on top, 76-72

The Tuesday-Wednesday Central title game featured the #3 Generals testing the 7-1 top-seeded LES Nets, matching their physicality and playing their pace. Ultimately the LES roster was pushed over the top by MVP Josh Perez for a 46-42 win. 

In the South title game, there was no doubt that #3 The Basketball Team and #4 Death Row deserved the spotlight after impressive playoff  “upsets” in the semis. Led by 20 from Cam Reed, TBT edged out Nik Davis and Death Row, 63-57

Thursday Pacific Division

 The senior citizenry of Lior, Alon, Joe and Marc combined with MVP Roy Williams (16 pts) to lead Ma Kore to another title before they move on to 40-and-over leagues. Defense was the name of the game in their win over Jason Williams & Friends, as #2 seed Ma Kore (5-3) held the 7-1 #1 seed to just 14 second half points in the 53-39 win.
