Visual Basics and Shotcallers Fight for Right to Face Ballaz By Law
JUNE 9, 2005 -- Scores from the past few weeks, updated playoff brackets, and previews of this Sunday's matchups will be posted shortly...
Ballaz By Law Improves to 10-0
MAY 19, 2005 -- #1-seeded Ballaz By Law won their 10th straight game and remains the only undefeated team throughout Dream League this season. They eliminated the single-elimination-status Natural Born Brickers (West #3 seed, 3-5 sub-.500 regular season), 36-29, on Sunday. Paul Perez led BBL with 9 points in the abbreviated game, which was imposed by league rule and gym scheduling and cost constraints due to team(s) arriving well after tipoff time. NBB was led by V.Yang with 11 pts 10 reb.
In the Losers Bracket game, the Shotcallers wiped out an anemic DrunkenMasters team, 52-39, a final tally which was a lot prettier than the 13-2 and 32-9 first and second quarter margins. The DrunkenMasters shot 0-for-10 in the first quarter and added kerosene to the fire by committing 8 turnovers, then went 3-for-12 in the second quarter (zero turnovers, though!). The third quarter wasn't much of an improvement at 4-for-16, but they actually outscored the Shotcallers 13-10 in that quarter. The Shotcallers had a balanced attack, with five players tallying 8, 9, or 10 points. The leader, however, was Roy Kim, who 6 dished out assists to go along with 5 rebounds. Sharpshooter Ryan Dang led the DrunkenMasters with 14 points, connecting on three of his last four shots from downtown after going just 1-for-8 in the first three frames.
This sets up a rather weird scheduling situation where the Shotcallers will remain idle with no one else to play against in the Losers Bracket for the time being. Sure, we could have scheduled them against the loser of the Winners Bracket game between BBL and the Visual Basics on the same day, but then that wouldn't have been fair to the Winners Bracket team because they would have had to play two in one day as compared to the Shotcallers' one.
So we revert back to the standard Final Three setup on 6/5 when the loser of BBL/VBs goes up against the Shotcallers, then the winner of that game must recharge itself as best as possible and face the Winners Bracket winner that same day, on the Winners Bracket's home turf, which will definitely be San Mateo High School since both BBL and the VBs call San Mateo home (even though the schedule below says TBD -- it's a database issue, btw).
The Shotcallers' game will be in Oakland if the VBs lose and San Mateo if BBL loses, due to the better regular season record getting homecourt advantage. If it's the VBs versus Shotcallers, you can see that the VBs have beaten the Shotcallers twice, although the Shotcallers have the better regular season record at 6-2 compared to 5-3. One could argue that the VBs schedule was in a tougher conference, but for now, that's how the rules are, but if we see a disturbing trend develop in future seasons, we will take action and change the rule accordingly.
