Saturday 8.11.12 saw another day of great play at the Grown Up Sports Saturday Afternoon Adult Men’s Basketball league at WCC in the Houston Heights. Yeah, we missed a week. It happens. Let’s recap the action from this past Saturday.
Dream Elite v. Goalbreakers
Goalbreakers win, 113-64 (see Box Score)
GUS Players of the Game: Charles King (Goalbreakers): 49 points, 12 rebounds, 2 rebounds, 3 assists. Malik Henderson (Goalbreakers): 33 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals. Kris Dao (Goalbreakers): 12 assists, 8 rebounds
JC’s Jets v. LetGetIt
JC, killing. Justin, killing. His name Wale and he came to get it. HIs name Wale and he came to get it. That’s how [Wale is] starting off week 5; kicking in the door and he’s everybody’s problem. On the other end of the court, LetsGetIt started off strong with a lead going into the half, but was unable to pull way due to some late first half shooting woes (free throws included) and foul trouble (Jacko). Tony and Claude provided some much needed firepower to start the second half, but it wasn’t enough to stop the bleeding as the lead dwindled. Down to the wire, late game clutch free throws by Jets’ Justin, Marcus and Wale would seal the deal.
JC’s Jets win, 59-58 (see Box Score)
GUS Player of the game: Wale Alesh (Jets): 19 points, 5 rebounds
Gorilla Mask v. Thunderbeards
Gorilla Mask wins, 81-59 (see Box Score)
GUS Players of the Game: FACE (Gorilla Mask): 14 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals. Greg Phillips (Gorilla Mask): 14 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals.
Westside Connection v. Uno Uno
Westside Connection breaks out to a monster lead in the first half. Sergio and Donald are pouring in buckets left and right and take a 14 point lead into the halfway mark. Josh Davis arrives with 15 mintes left in the second half. His team is defeated. Josh, however, is not defeated. Mr Solo Dolo has the heart of a lion. Josh leads Will, Juan, Davine and Osagie, who were all already playing well, into the lion’s den and hacks away steadily at the lead. Uno Uno goes up with time running down. Westside Connection ties it up and has possession. Final seconds. Josh get a Steal. Breakway. Clock is dwindling. *everyone in the gym take a Saved By The Bell style pause to take blood pressure medication* Josh. Slams. The. Ball. Home. At. The. Buzzer. Controversy abounds. Bucket is good.
Uno Uno wins, 61-59 (see Box Score)
GUS Player of the Game: Josh Davis (Uno Uno): 6 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 epic buzzer beating dunk in 15 minutes of play, 1 shout out to Phi Slamma Jamma
