The first week of Intramural Basketball is underway and I have my eye on teams that are starting the season with big strides.
On Monday there were a couple of teams that caught my eye. In the game (Computer Blue (53) v. The Incredibles (55)) it was a barn burner that came down to the last shot. Michael Junard came down the court and made a nice jump shot with about 3 seconds left on the clock. (the silence on the court was like thunder) With clutch performances like that we might have to start calling him Michael “Primetime” Junard.
Another Monday contest (Legends (46) v. Team Yolo(66)) Team Yolo is just stacked with local talent. These hometown boys have shot 100%, 60 percent from the field and 40 percent from the free-throw line. With stats like that it will be hard to measure up.
Also as suspected The Goon Squad is off to a hot start. Suspicions arose with a preseason injury but this team has seemed to bounce back with a vengeance.
Stay tuned folks for Chops Power Rankings that will be coming out this Friday. See if your team has enough cream to rise to the top.
The only difference between a good shot and a bad shot is if it goes in or not.
