The East team(made up of Ben Mahtani from NC, Quinzale Taylor from FC, George Banes from CR and Alex from DG) defeated the West team(made up of Greg Spalding from BP, justin Felt from DG, Jeriah McMillan from FC and Nick from DG) 132-103 in a shootout. The two stars of the game were Ben Mahtani who scored 55 points with 17 three-pointers and George Banes who tallied 12 three-pointers. It was a fun game. Next year, please consider being a part of the All-Star Game as it’s a great time of fellowship since you get to play with players you don’t get to play with normally.
In the three-point shootout, we had 8 contestants. In the first round, Jeriah, George and Justin had 7, Greg had 6, Alex had 5 and Ben had 4. Quinzale and Nick were the two highest in the first round as Nick had 10 and Q had 8. So Q and Nick advanced to the second round. In the second round, Q hit 8 and Nick had 5 so Quinzale won the three-point shootout.
Justin, Nick and Alex from DG all participated in the dunk contest. Each contestant had five dunks and had two attempts at each one. Three judges(Q Jeriah and Ben) awarded points to each contestant for each dunk. Alex won the contest with 46.5 points, Nick had 31.5 and Justin had 24. It was great to have some contestants for that! Please consider sending your dunkers to the competition next year.
It was a great night of fun and fellowship around the roundball. Next year we need to get more teams and players involved. But it was a great All-Star Night.
Good luck to everyone the rest of the way and we hope to see you at the luncheon next week. Please RSVP to Greg Spalding at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone or text (412-436-6907) by next Thursday the 10th so we have enough food for the luncheon after the championship game.
Here is a highlight reel from the night.
