      With much making up to do from Monday Night's "A" Division Playoff debacle with player eligibility, tonight's final made up for all of the stuff! We had a "A" Division Final for the ages, with Overtime. A big comeback, Players fouling out, and injured player playing on one leg, back and forth action and of course high energy! In a game that was a two point game at half, with The Grasshopper leading the way, it took The Grasshopper's Brandon, Manny and Corey to give Swamp Squads Hazel, Brian d, and Brian B all they could handle as the game went to Overtime to determine a Champion! In the end, The Grasshopper went home with the first place trophy as the beat the Swamp Squad 81-77 in an overtime thriller!
      The B Divison Games was equally exciting as Pick 1 had started out with a cold hand, yet Team Klitch was converting on three's at an alarming rate! Klitch's 3 point sharpe shooter Harry hit for 6 three's and ended with 24 points, as then Pick 1's Louis got started! Back and forth with the three point shots as both teams lived and died with the three pointer. Pick One's very balanced attack, was not enough in the end as Team Klitch hoisted thier first everr MCAL Title. Once again it was a great night for MCAL Basketball!!

      Our 2015 Winter Champions...Center Grove's Finest!
      The fans (and there were many) that came out to witness the 2015 Winter Season Championship Game between the 2 seed..Old As Dirt and the 6th seed, Center Grove's Finest were treated to a classic match. A game that went back and forth in the early going where Old As Dirt took off with a 12 - 4 lead. Center Grove then evened the score at 22 all and it was a back and forth game all evening. As the first half came to a close, the hot shooting of Center Grove's MVP, Jack, hit for 8 points in what seemed like 30 seconds and Center Grove took a 31 - 26 halftime lead going into the intermission.
      The second half started and Old As Dirt took off with a 6 - 0 run and it was Old As Dirt with a short lead with 5 minutes gone into the second half. Once again back and forth until Center Grove's Chip hit for three three's in a row as Center Grover roared back in the lead. It was such a clean game a pleasure to watch as the short bench of Old As Dirt led to their demise as Center Grove pulled away in the last few minutes and ended with a 67 - 56 victory! It was Center Grove's second title in a row, as they were our Fall Season Champs and now repeat champions! Ceneter Grove's Jack and League MVP led all scorers with 26 as John, Rob and Kyle had 15 each in a losing effort!
      All players received their hardware after the contest and teams were very satisfied for a job well done! Great stuff by both sides and congrats to our 2015 Winter Season Champions - Center Grove's Finest!!
      Come watch what should be a great game!
