The top two teams are the best Div 2 had to offer, it was the reigning champs ThreeBallers, and the Splash crew who are looking for their WEd night glory and hoped this would be the night.
The game started out with the ThreeBallers getting hot to start and getting some consistent movement, but paul G splashed a few threes and the momentum kept shifting, both teams looking for the shot but with the defense being played, it was hard to get some cuts going.
By the end of the 1st half the score was 27 -25 3Ballers way with only 1 bucket in it, Shannon had 13 at the half to lead scorers, and Paul G on 9 as Splash fought to stay in contention, the second half started and the Splash crew came out looking for a burst of energy, but Oscar and the Bigs of Ballers kept the wall up and the glass owned as they pulled down slightly more rebounds.
It was 46-39 at the 3rd quarter buzzer, Doug leading with 16 Paul G on 15, but the fourth quarter the lead was established and it looked like another Splash dissapointment was to be witnessed.
At end game Paul G had 16 points, 7 rebounds, Adrian G on 14 and Ahmad on 10, a massive 34 3s attempted, it just wasnt splashing this night, as they bow out standing tall to have made it to the final game, great season SPlash!
