Hey everyone, I am Lee D this is where I will cover all things intramural sports related. Below is a wrap up off week three alongside a preview of week 4. Stay tuned for the latest stories in the world of WKU Intramural Sports.
“Down goes Frazier”! Just like in 1972 when George Foreman knocked out the champ Joe Frazier to claim the championship. The Hot Shotz defeated Alpha Delta Pi 48-39, to take out the defending champs from the realm of the unbeaten. Phi Mu withstood a furious comeback from Chi Omega. They hung on to win 31-26 and were led by Audra Roach, who put together another big game. WKU Soccer fell to 0-2 after they were defeated by AOII 24-19. This women’s leagues seems to be on a crash course to the final. Phi Mu versus the Hot Shotz, but only time will tell.
Upsets seem to have been trending this week, as we had another defending champ go down. The Big Red Ballers were handed their first loss since week two of last year. They lost 49-35 to Cash Money Records, who got their star Zach Weinstein back and he sure did make the difference. Jessica Lucas showed off her shooting, while Kinsey Mudd showed of her skills in the win. Sigma Chi and AOPi battled the Hill-floppers for first placed and they fought to a 41-41 tie, they both sit atop that division tied for first place. Phi Mu/Pike and the RECing Balls both remained undefeated at 3-0 on the season. There is not one clear favorite in this league, but as we look to March and the playoffs this will be fun to watch.
The “Game of the Week” came of the men’s league, and featured two teams vying for first place. Free Ballin’ squeaked out a four point win to defeat The Rockets 51-47 and take control of the division. Popout GANG overcame a first half deficit to defeat The Shockers 40-32. Wavy Inflatable Tubed Men won another game in dominating fashion to remain undefeated. They will battle for first place against Team Bye Week, a squad who is very talented, but does not get the recognition they deserve. They have one of the players in the league in Kyle Jeffers. The Chasers also remained perfect after they beat The Cartel 55-42. There’s still not a team that I can see challenging Jared and his boys, but that is why we play the game.
You can compare this fraternity league to the sky, because that’s how wide open it is. There has not been one team to step up and assert themselves as favorites in this league. KA Gold, Fiji Purple, Sigma Chi Blue and SigEp Red all seem to be fighting for that title, as they all remain unbeaten and atop their divisions. CHOP Basketball are the ones to beat and nobody seen it coming. This team is top three in offense and defense, all their victories have come by an average of 33 points per game. They may not be the favorite, but they are playing the best and for sure making a name for themselves. This year basketball is at a premium and down the stretch we shall see fraternities their finest.
The Road to a Championship, Bragging rights and more importantly a T-Shirt will not be easy for any one team. We are off to a great start, be on the lookout on Twitter (@wkuintramurals) for our game of the week to see if it will feature your team. I LeeD will see you all next week.
