Money Train: 57 vs. Cobras: 62
In our first game of 2012, Cobras came away with a hard-fought W. Money Train played the entire first half with 4 players, and shortly into the second half their fifth player showed up. Despite playing a man down, Money Train kept the game close with Ari Betancourt scoring 25 points and hitting six 3 pointers. In the end Ben Bertot and Kyle Hughes were able to fend off the comeback with their combined 42 points and 24 rebounds, as both recorded a double double. Corbin also found himself with a double double in 11 points and 16 rebounds.
Metro Church: 52 vs. Old School: 64
This was the Powell brother show, as Wesley 23 points 10 rebounds and Jason 26 points 10 rebounds dominated the game. In their first game they needed no time to warm up and proved they are going to hard to stop this season. Metro Church made several runs, but anytime they were able to get within striking distance, the Powell brothers ended it. Metro Church showed a balance attack as they had 3 players in double figures, with Jake Polk scoring 10, Caleb Polk 16 and Brandyn Meuse adding 14.
Runnin’ & Gunnin’: 53 vs. Tar Heels: 48
Jeff Moreira lived up to his team name that night as he busted out with 31 points. He was Runnin’ & Gunnin’ and nobody on the court could stop him, it was a night to be remembered. Runnin’ & Gunnin’ also had a great inside presence as Joe Washaby hauled in 10 rebounds, and Justin Rowe grabbed 15. Wilbur Mathurin, or as I like to call him Mr. Reliable, didn’t disappoint as he recorded his first double double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds. It was a closely contested game, but Jeff would not be denied the win.
Flight 612: 72 vs. Antioch: 27
In their first game of the season Flight 612 came out and flying. They were led in scoring by James Hunt with 16, but 3 other players finished in double digits. Flight 612 was also dishing out the basketball well as they finished the game with 11 assists. Flight 612 began the game on an incredible run, and Antioch was unable to answer. Antioch was led by Mike Davis who had 6 points and 4 rebounds.
