May 4th, 2024 Updates (Championship)

FC 103 StE 92- Rob Sims of FC poured in 32 points, Kison 22, Shaq Hager 21 and Jordan 17 as FC defeated the two-time defending champions. Breeze Williams lead the defending champs with 27 points, Jake B had 16, Tim P had 15 and John had 14. It was a well-played game and a fitting ending to the season. Unfortunately, Paul McQueen, last season’s championship game MVP, was not at the game. The fourth place team won the championship for one of the few times in our history as they beat both the first seed and the second seed. Congrats to Friendship for their first ever championship and also congrats to StE for a great season as well. Rob Sims of FC won the MVP for his 32-point effort but it was a tough choice between him, Shaq, Jordan and Kison. All of them played a huge part with big buckets and great defense. Jordan of FC got the Leadership Award for doing a lot of the little things to help his team win. Thank you everyone for a great season and we look forward to our 40th campaign next January. Have a great offseason and we’ll see you next year!

This was a thrilling game. As far as I can remember we have never had a triple OT game, especially in the playoffs. In our first season, Beulah beat First Reformed in double overtime for the championship. As they always say, “It’s a shame someone had to lose this game.” Geno just missed tying it up at the buzzer with a layup attempt that fell short.
