Duck & Cover
Congratulations goes to The Ducks for winning the 2013 Fall 2 season at St Bernard in Tosa. The were able to beat Controversy 75-62 in the championship game and claim their first MUSA basketball title knocking off the defending champion. This was a rematch of a very close regular season game which saw The Ducks squeek out the win by 3 but Controversy would not get their revenge. Donte Daugherty led all scorers with 15 points but there were 3 players right behind him with 14 including Bobby Komorowski who led Controversy. Controversy out rebounded The Ducks but they won the turnover battle turing the ball over just 3 times compared to 8 for Controversy and really the big difference in the game. Congrats to both teams for making that far.
6:00pm game #7 Strictly Business (2-4) vs. #8 Spartans (0-6)
The night started off with the winless number 8th seed Spartans taking on number 7 Strictly Business. Spartans looking for their first win would come up short as Dujuan Cherry leading 20 points was not enough to help them get the victory. Antoine Roby lead Strictly Business with 18 while Anton Convingont was huge on the glass raking in 10 boards and making sure they walked out with the 69-58 win.
7:00pm #5 TMNT (3-3) vs. #6 F.I.G. (2-4)
Next was the 7pm game between TMNT and F.I.G. These teams played the week earlier and TMNT was able to pull out the 60-56 victory but it wasn’t meant to be this night as F.I.G. got the lead and wouldn’t look back beating TMNT 69-56 and securing their 3-4 record. F.I.G.’s Austin Shackelford gets Player of the Game as his double double of 12 points and 12 boards earned him the victory. Doug Gentry’s double double of 13 points and 11 rebounds just wasn’t enough to get the win or POTM.
8:00pm #3 Fresh Habits (4-2) vs #4 Basket Brawlers (3-3)
One time MUSA basketball champion Basket Brawlers were looking at ending their season on the good side of .500 but standing in their way was #3 seed Fresh Habits. The Brawlers fall from grace would take another knock as Fresh Habits was able to fend off the Brawlers 2nd half run and finally beat them 68-61. Fresh Habit’s Jamison Montgomery lead all players with 23 and even though Basket Brawlers out rebounded Fresh Habits 42-29, it still wasn’t enough to save the season.
