THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PLAYED IN THE LEAGUE THIS YEAR! It was a great year of fellowship of the roundball!
God bless you all! I hope to see most of you at the lunch but if you’re not able to make it, have a great offseason and we hope to see you for season #31!

All Star Night

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 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.

Updates & Playoff Schedule

Thanks to everyone who helped with the article in the Tribune last Thursday. I think the reporter did a really good job and you guys had some good
things to say. Thanks so much. I have a few extra copies so if anyone would like a hard copy of the article let me know and I’ll bring you one.
I’m very thankful for the article. It’s a great way to celebrate. I appreciate all you guys. Like Clint always says to his players and coaches, “I love you guys.” I appreciate the fellowship we share through basketball and the Lord. God bless all of you guys. It’s been a great year.

Final- 4/12- Championship, Birthday party and luncheon

10 am- Championship
Then we will have the birthday party for the league, luncheon and hopefully a guest speaker 30 minutes after the game is over.
So please invite everyone you know to come to the championship and then to the luncheon afterwards. Just let me know how many are coming so I can make sure we have enough food. We will have catered food and hope to set up tables and eat right in the gym afterwards.
