Here we go! A crazy four-way tie among teams at 1-2. Only the top four will make the playoffs. Excitement!
Before stats, a quick note: a substitute player's stats will count for the team stats of the team he's subbing for, but not for his individual stats. Example: Steve Reiter subbed in last night for The Cray's Nest. He scored 4 points. Those 4 points go into the team total, and any foul shots he made or missed would have counted for the team free throw percentage. But those 4 points will NOT count for his individual stats. A player is only credited for points he scores playing for his own team.
Player of the Week: Geoff Nelson
Nelson hit a league record 7 3-pointers, including 4 in the second half, while leading the Hospital Bombers to a thrilling 45-44 win over Beast of Burden. He scored over half of his team's points. Geoff will receive a used set of steak knives and a miniature wooden likeness of former NBA great Rick Barry.
Honorable Mention: Vance Tucker and Keith Gormley
Tucker scored 12 points and led a depleted Cray's Nest squad to a 29-27 win over Dunk-a Schoen. His driving layup with 15 seconds remaining was the difference in the game. The stunning win preserves their dream of the GABL's first undefeated season.
Gormley set a league record with 12 field goals, and tied another with 26 points, in Layup Line Heroes' losing effort. He accounted for 81% of his team's points.
Both players will receive $10 gift certificates to Big Sarge's NBA Emporium on Roosevelt Avenue in Topeka, Kansas.
