With playoffs looming and standing tight, it was a moving weekend in the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA Men’s League.
Game one ended with Double Dribble 74 and Fast Break 57. In the upset special, balanced scoring by Double Dribble was the difference as Marlon Brown, 26, Chris Mattina, 24 (5 treys) and Eric Halpin, 19, were too much for the Breakers. Fast Break got 17 and 13 from Jason Holley and Steve Lee but drop their second game of the season, now 7 and 2. Double Dribble improves to 4 and 5.
In game two, Courtmasters closed with 64 and Above the Rim with 56. The big guns fired and Courtmaster Jack Ryan popped for 33 and Above the Rim’s Jamal Berry blasted for 35 but when the smoke cleared Above the Rim had no other player in double figures. Ryan’s sidearms, rookies Greg Carder and Joe Encarnacion took aim at 11 and 9 points respectively and Eric Lai chipped in 8. Courtmaster improves to 4 and 5, Above the Rim drops to 3 and 6.
Game three ended with Got Skills 58 and Hooptown 45. With three players in double digits in scoring, Got Skills improved to 4 and 5 led by sharpshooter Ian Brown’s 19 (6 of 6 from the free throw line) and rookie Kevin Gannon’s 14. Tom St.John added 14 opportunistic points. Hooptown’s Steve Colao posted 15 in the effort. Hooptown can now criticize their own record at 5 and 4.
