Playoffs start tomorrow and we have some very interesting matchups.
Games will start at 12:00 showcasing the B league first, then the a-league playoffs will begin at 4:00 and finish around 8pm.
12 - the first game of the day will be forest green (#1) versus atomic blue ( #8). The teams matched up earlier this season on opening week resulting in a forest green victory 105 -65.
Forest green is led by a big three of Cam Hayes, Brennen Lawton and Aaron Smith.
Forest has struggled to field more than 5 players as of late so player attendance may skew the odds.
Atomic blue is lead by Travis Moyer 16 ppg. Atomic Blue will look to shock the league with the first game of the playoffs. stay tuned
1: at 1:00 we have the number two seed (Grey) versus the number 7 seed (Orange)
This game should be entertaining to say the least as Jonathan Codrington has shown that he can single-handedly take over a game.
Grey is led by Jared Conklin at 26 points per game followed by Stevie Melendez with 23. Dylan Jaklitsch also led the league in assists 85 (12 apg).
These teams met earlier in the season and the end result was 87 to 63 Grey. Jonathan Codrington was not at that game 23.0 ppg 4.2 apg 11.2 rpg
at 2:00 p.m. we have the three (Tennessee Orange) versus six (purple) game.
Danny Lapin (iron Man & most improved) has corralled this free agency team to a playoff berth after an impressive win to clinch the 6th seed versus orange.
Captain Danny Lapin was quoted saying "it might not be much of a game but I'm thankful for the opportunity to play versus Zimmer and Danny"
Cam Best & Jordan Brown will aim to put forth a valiant effort to knock off Tennessee orange.
Tennessee orange is led by Danny Njoku , Damian Zimmer & Zayier Lawrence.
These teams faced off week one of the season with orange winning 99 to 53.
3: finishing off the b-league playoff excitement for the day is number four versus five seed Black versus blue. There was a three-way tie for a third place and seating ultimately went to head to head in point spread.
Royal blue beat Black 82-77 earlier in the season. So I'm expecting a rather close game.
Royal blue is led by Ray Williams with 21 points per game then there is a rounded out core effort with several guys over 10 points per game.
The black team is led by the beach Brothers & Colin Adam. The black team by far has the most team chemistry out of any team in the league and if Tim Vandemark is there the overall point spread will swing by 2 points.
This very well could be the best game of the day.
With only six teams making playoffs this year for the a league I decided to try a different format so that teams can be fresh for the championship next weekend.
4 pm - black versus white should be a very very entertaining matchup. These teams matched up earlier in the season and white came out victorious 66 to 63.
Jake Van dusen (White) was quoted saying " oh that's exactly who we wanted, you just made my day.) When hearing of the potential playoff rematch vs Black.
MVP Zan Stewart will look to continue to show up in big games. The MVPs statistical numbers are skewed due to sitting out in games that were not close.
Black is led by 6th man of the Year Lester McCarthy & Pablo Quinones
I believe that Isaiah Barnes could have a significant impact on this game.
The winner of the 4:00 p.m. game will go on to play grey at 6:00 p.m.
5pm: the plot was thick but it continues to thicken with another rematch of Carolina Blue vs Vegas Gold. What people should know is that Dan Njoku (Carolina blue) is fresh off a championship competing with several members of the Vegas Gold team.
Both of these teams were my preseason favorites and it'll be very interesting to see who prevails.
Carolina blue is led by Danny and the joker with 22 points per game followed by George and z (17.5 & 22)
George Foti's stats are skewed after he got placed into quarantine (locked down by Cam Hayes - zero 3s)
Vegas gold has a very challenging scoring triage of Aaron Smith Frank Desti and John Brennan. Vegas gold has not been at full strength the last couple of weeks due to Easter and other vacations but they will look bounce back with a vengeance after missing last week's games.
These teams have met twice this season splitting 1-1, with each game being decided under seven points.
There are tons of shooters throughout expect this to be a high scoring game.
The winner of the 5:00 game will go on to play Red at 7:00
