|MAY 16, 2006 -- Back on Sunday 5/7, the East Bay Cardinals' Karl Gusner and Ross Lim pulled another rabbit out of the hat with their 2nd comeback overtime win in as many weeks. Meanwhile, Jeremy DelaCruz triple-doubled Play Hard past Game Time, but turned back into Dr. Jekyll as Driven's Ryan Cruz and Sunny Margate forced a showdown in the Last Losers Bracket Game versus the Wildcatz.|
The winner of Driven vs the Wildcatz will then face the East Bay Cardinals in the championship. If the Cardinals lose, we'll have to figure out when to play a repeat championship.
Key matchups for Driven vs the Wildcatz: Margate vs Will Wagner and Cruz vs Teraz Lee down low, the shooting of the Catz' Mike Reding in which Driven ought to think about going big with Christian Fullecido down low and the lengthy Cruz on Reding, the three-point shooting of Carlo Lacsamana vs James Chuong, and whether or not Driven's point guard Sean Caiola has healed from his sprained ankle.
Key matchups against the East Bay Cardinals: preventing Lim and Gusner from casting their late-game magic, whether or not small forward Huy Nguyen will catch fire, and whether it's point guard Johnson Bui or center Andrew Lee or both who step up to complement the Big Three.
