Week 2


Indianapolis  - Team 3 pulled away in the second half when Richie Smith came off the bench with a game high 18 points (16 coming in the second half).  Jason Gaither was the player of the game with a solid 16 points 6 rebounds and 6 assists making an assortment of layups and floaters.   Drew Franklin didn't follow through with his pregame promise of 20 points and 10 rebounds and should have aimed for a more modest 8 points and 8 rebounds.  Chris Taylor had a rough second half as his team dropped their 2nd straight game.  After the game Taylor had this to say, “I'm not sure if it was the zone or what, but we just struggled to score.  I tried to spin the ball off the backboard every which I way I could but it just wasn't going in.  One bright spot for Team 2 was the emergence of Will Schnabel.   He already has the best Twitter account in the league but has shown the ability to hit a 3 and is quickly become a fan favorite.   One fan said “if there were PFOL jerseys and I actually wanted to buy one first I would get a Richie Smith jersey but second I would get a Will Schnabel jersey.”

Week 1 Recap


WOW! What an incredible start to the first week of the PFOL Season 10! Both sets of games showed multiple comebacks and tons of heart and passion.

 

Team Elzy faced Team Taylor yesterday in a defensive slobberknocker. This game reminded me of the 2013 Pacers days against pretty much any other all defensive no offensive teams in the league. Team Elzy used their bench very effectively and squeaked out a 35-29 win against the 5-man rotation Team Taylor put on the floor. “It hurts when you don’t have your best lineup,” explained Team Captain Chris Taylor. “I have been here for 2 years, seen Intern Drew become Drew Franklin and never seen him sick a day in his life. Collusion? I hope not.”

 

Today’s matchup with Team Burger against Team Reitan was quite the opposite. This game featured 30 more shot attempts than the previous game with much high shooting percentages. “I’ll admit,” proclaims Jeff Hughes. “I thought we would slaughter this team today. Mad respect.” Our first OT game of the year goes down to the wire and Team Burger sweated out the win against Team Reitan 64-61. We all knew what Branch and Westberry would bring to the table, but what might be most surprising is Team Captain Nathan Burger’s 14 point 7 rebound performance today. “I’m at 2!” shouts Burger from the locker room. Altercations stemmed from an argument between Burger and Elzy regarding how highly Burger thought of himself. “I thought he was a 3 easily,” said Elzy. “Proved me wrong today.”

 

More surprising notes from Week 1:

 

·         Team Burger has 4 players in the Top 10 in scoring, rebounding, and assists

·         Kyle Krol already posting a strong campaign for Comeback Player of the Year leading the league in rebounding

·         Cody Sparks shoots for the Most Improved Award early on with a strong 10 point 7 rebound performance yesterday

·         Can Edmound Elzy overcome a weak 11 point 7 rebound performance in the opener to regain the scoring title? Or will he slowly deteriorate and fall into the shadows of what was the PFOL Elite? Time will tell

·         Strong battle at the top for Rookie of the Year between newcomers Jason Gaither and David Westberry. Gaither posted a 12 point 7 rebound effort and Westberry almost messed around and got a triple double with a 16-6-6 display.


 

Many things to look forward to next week!
