Another good night Inside the Gates Monday Night. Team On-Point defeated Team Ulico in the first game of the evening, 53-41, while the hometown team BF Crazies pulled off a comeback victory against the Showstoppers, 48-39.
On-Point walked into Halftime with a 29-20 lead. They finished the final three minutes of the first half with a 12-4 run, never relinquishing the lead. Ulico had a rough shooting night, especially PJ and Phil who could not find the bottom of the net. High-Flyer, Conrad, finished with 12 points which was the team high for Ulico.
On-Point didn’t have an outstanding night from the field either but Ulico’s scoring droughts gave them more opportunities to score the basketball. Raymar led all scorers with 13 points, also leading the charge in the second half to put On-Point up by as much as 17.
In the main event, the Showstoppers were looking to end the Crazies’ 3-game win streak but fell victim to the home team. Gary Jr., who played the entire game, finished with 12 points but had two big buckets in the final 5 minutes that put the Crazies up 7, one of which being an And-1.
“We coming for that championship this year! The home team, 20th year! Gary Said.
The Crazies core group is still there, such as Malcom who led the Crazies with 17 points, but the supporting cast of Sean, Devin, and Ryan made are why they're still undefeated.
“My team saved the day, I couldn’t do to much. Even though I was missing a lot of shots, they believed in me so we pulled through.”
The Crazies caused back-to-back turnovers that led to Gary’s two buckets. Prior to that, they were down 32-28. J-Dubb looked like he was on his way to leading the Showstoppers to victory but he and the rest of the Showstoppers became sloppy with the ball. Dubb was the only player that scored in double-figures for the ShowStoppers finishing with 18 points. Dubb made some tough highlight plays but he only scored 6 points in the second half, which wasn’t enough being the only offensive threat the Showstopper had.
The Crazies won’t play again until next monday, taking on Corey Allmond, Marcus Ashton and the rest of Team Ariyuan. Will they be able to keep their record unblemished or will the best offensive backcourt be too much for the Crazies? Stay tuned!
