First Timer and a Three-Peater!

Fall Season Championships..A Great Night of Hoops!

There is no more fitting way to end the year, complete our season and crown two champions than what was witnessed by all in attendance at the MCAL Championships, Monday, November 14th at the Parsippany PAL! We saw four teams, each play their hearts out, play as professional of a game as one can play! No second guessing referees. No yelling, no complaining. Just two great games by 4 fantastic teams and in the end...two Champions...Coastal...for a three-peat and Pavinci Prime Times for their First Ever League Title!

The first game was a low scoring contest early on as it was just 12 - 12 with 8 minutes left in the first half. Then Pavinci started to hit some big shots as game MVP Jarred hit a big three and Tyron hit three threes in a row to pull away at half 29-16. Pick One fought back in the second half, closing the gap to 2 and it went back and forth. Jarred went off in the second half, leading all scorers with 25 as Pavinci took the West Title 61-50!

Then came the East boys, with Coastal, looking for their third title this year and MC Elite, looking to get back to the winners circle faced off in what was an epic battle! Back and forth as Coastals Spence and game MVP was on fire as he torched the nets with 29 points, while MC Elites Jesse hit for 25 and Matt C hit for 20 as the two teams exchanged the lead throughout the entire game! In the end it was Coastal who proved too much as the pulled away with 1 minute left ending with a 68-61 win and title number three this year! Congrats to our winners and what a great night for basketball at the MCAL!

Thank You all for a great season!

Come On Wednesday...It Is Playoff Time!!
