CAC Slap gets their second title in as many calendar years as they overpower a game, but shorthanded, Big Cheesburgers club. MVP Josh Ford had 25 while “Lunchbox” pitched in with 14. 

Monday North Division

Finally dropping the “best team to never win a Basketball City title” moniker, FUBAR collects their first title after many, many bridesmaid appearances. Their 65-49 win over Team 32 was punctuated by Gabe Seidman’s 33 point MVP performance.

Monday Central Division:

Malice 8 and Flatliners played one of the most physical Championship Night games in our Fall ’19 season, but it was newcomers Malice coming out on top, 54-51, as Flatliners lost their second title game in a row. MVP Angel Ayala scored 22 points for the victors.

 TD Securities gets one for the thumb, capturing their 5th title by defeating WebMD 65-52. Mike Beaton (30 pts) took home MVP honors for TD while Sonny Gold (27 pts) kept WebMD in it as long as he could.
