What a night of SSC basketball at Factory of Champions! For only being Week Two, there was definitely no shortage of excitement as there were many close games along with some upsets.
The night began with Recess Rejects losing to Butts and Nuts, a new team who have come out strong, winning both of their games and landing themselves in third places out of our 15 teams. The only teams that are above them currently are last season’s champions, Tallest Midgets, and another newcomer, Sacks and Racks.
Don’t Make Me Popovich had a big time win against Cold cuts and another against Practice. They’re sitting at #4 after this week and look like an extremely solid team. It will be very interesting to see how they match up against Suicides Squad next week as they will need to address the height disadvantage as well as find a way to score on the Squad’s stingy defense.
Another match-up to look forward to next week will be Sacks and Racks vs. Butts and Nuts. Their names alone are enough to make this one entertaining but the 1 and 3 seeds playing is sure to make for a great game of basketball. Butts and Nuts has an extra rough schedule next week as they will also face the 2 seed Tallest Midgets.
This season is full of brand new faces and we are excited to welcome some brand new faces to SSC. Practice is one of these teams and they are this week’s Social Team of the Week. They show sportsmanship and friendliness on the court and always have smiles on their faces.
Next week we will kick off Week Three and the midway point of our season. Teams will have to fight hard because as the season continues wins become more and more important and hold playoff implications. We’ll see you all next week on the courts!
