Bay Area Kings (47) v. Tenacious D (44) F/OT A defensive battle between these two upstart teams came down to the wire. Tenacious D's Tony (15pts 5reb) hit a last second, game-tying shot with 00.1 seconds on the clock. Unfortunately for TenD, there was too much of the tandem of TK (24pts 5reb) and big man Hamilton (14pts 13reb). On a side note, Hamilton was supposed to join TenD, but decided not to add him to the roster because they thought he was too tall! But after the commish measured the center and found out that he met the 6'2 height limit he joined the Kings. Sorry Tenacious D!

Eagles DC (68) v. Jumpmen (56) After an exciting first half that saw the Jumpmen down by 2pts, the Eagles DC turned on the afterburners to win the game going away. Led by Joachim (13pts 6reb) and Chris (19pts 5reb) the Jmen stayed in the game for 3qtrs, but didnt have enough steam for a 4th qtr! The young legs of Arj (15pts 5reb) and Uriel (16pts 5asts) turned out to be too much for the Jmen to handle.

PayProTec (91) v. City Stars (78) PayProTec jumped out to a 30-12 1st qtr lead and never looked back! PPT led by Moe (17pts 13reb) and Barry (19pts 5reb) put it in cruise control for the rest of the game. Big games from Mike R (25pts) and Ant (24pts 5reb 4asts) were not enough to beat PPT. Watch out for City Stars in the near future, JBel (16pts 6asts) says that there will be some faces added to their roster by the cutoff period next week!

Islanders (59) v. Dawgs (63) Maybe they're better with 4 players! The Islanders took a 34-27 lead into the "locker room" led by Buba (22pts 6reb 4asts) and Tony (23pts 6reb). The Dawgs were led by Ryan (22pts 5reb 4asts) and James (14pts 6reb) who both had big 2nd halves. The Dawgs were without leading scorer Tyler but managed to prevail in this "dawg" fight.

Rangers (63) v. Pandas (33) The Rangers jumped out to a 15-3 advantage. The team was led by Tay (21pts) abd by a strong 1st qtr by Szeto (14pts 5reb). The Pandas, who never found their groove, were led by Joe (12pts 9reb) and Wally (11pts 3reb 3asts). A special shout goes to my fellow SI alum Matt Lai who grabbed a season high 11rebs!
