5 guys 1 cup..the reformed Boyz crew got to work on the new season, ballin still, Jack B got a solid 23 which seemed like 50 as did TOmmy Vs 4, short of his usual beastish self, J Clarke has something to do with that as he tried to control the paint with 12 points, Wayne J got 9 also.

Average Joes modest going into the Season not sure what to expect, but neither did their oppoonent as the Dynasty got off to a shaky season opener, BRad H on 5 as top score in the loss, Pat P got 20 and big man Dirk on 14 , AVerage Joes renamed to Not so average joes as their bigs and peices worked for a win.

UBL MONDAYS Grand Finals! Devestation Nation & Mighty Ballerz crowned champs!

Andy King Monday Mens

The first time ever, UBL Mondays has come to an end with the Grand Finals for Season 1! And the finalists are the best of what the divisions had to offer with the top teams going through and facing off for the prize and glory of a UBL championship!

Division 1 was a much anticipated match up with the Number 1 seed Devestation Nation and the Number 2 seed Rilla Raptors taking each other on in what has become a rivalry surmounting to this conclusion, and it started highly defensive, the first quarter didn’t have many points drop as players got their shot on and worked out the other strategies, 13-9 D-Nations way before the short break, Wil D getting warmed up with 4 in the quarter. 2nd quarter had the lock down defense put on the big scorer Mal from Raptors, and Will D got to work with 8 making the lead 32-18 D nations way, a lead that would be hard to overcome for the Raptors the final score 55 – 44 Raptors trying to make a late run, but came up short as the frustrations set in and some players got into foul trouble, allowing D Nation to ice the lead and the Championship!

Standout performances on the night were Mal Picken, 19 points, Corey M on 8, Jamie C on 9 boards, and A Picken with 7pts 8boards from Raptors, and Devestation Nation had Will D the finals MVP on 24points and 7 rebounds, James B got 8 boards to help out the bigs, Nate Connolly got 13 and 4 assists. Dev Nation telling factor was the 12 assists, all other starts were very similar.

Congrats to the Devestation Nation and its people, they are crowned champions in a hard fought match, Rilla raptors fought hard but were unlucky in the end, great effort to those boys too as they made for a solid Grand Finals.


 
Division 2 had the Mighty Ballerz take on Drews Crew, the late season entrants who mounted a great streak and a solid playoff performance in order to get to the Finals, although missing their star forward Dr Elliot Jones, the crew was ready to take on the Ballerz that are mighty, in height and hustle.

Starting their UBL adventure in Division 1 at the start of the season, the team of mixed experience Ballers had some work to do to build their chemistry, and now they have and stayed atop the division till Finals where they had their work cut out playing a team they hadn’t faced much, So big man Ed Steed got to work early, eating glass whenever possible and dishing out to the wings for the breaks, Mighty ballers were up 12-5 after the first horn, starting off strong and stopping all inside play of Drews crew forcing mid range to get going which wasn’t as tuned this time around, Half time it was 29-14,

Mighty Bs not looking back as they pushed the break and exploited the small ball mid range game of the Crew. 3rd quarter flowed on to the next the height of the 2 bigs Stretch n Ed too much on the glass, not allowing many 2nd chance points, resulting in a Mighty Ballerz championship!
Standout performances on the night were Ed Steed, a huge Double Double on 14 points and 17 rebs, a finals MVP performance, whilst Stretch on 10 points and 15 rebounds a Double Double shooting a good percentage for Mighty Ballerz, Brynn got 13 points and 10 rebs for Drews Crew, not getting as many looks as hed like due to the fast reacting D of Mighty Bs, Jay on 10 points and Sab on 8.

Congrats to Mighty Ballerz, Division 2 champions!! Great work also by Drews crew, gracious in defeat and played hard to the end despite the gap they were chasing, they look to bounce back stronger next season.

 
Many thanks to all the teams that entered into the competitions and all competed for the UBL playoffs, the first season was an epic show of competitiveness and sportsmanship, next season looks to be even bigger, with more teams having entered to compete as more free agents join the UBL Monday league. Congrats again to the winners , and best of luck next season to those who did not win it all, Stay tuned as we return October 2nd or 9th!!

UBL MONDAYS Semi Finals action..the Finals matchups are set!

Andy King Monday Mens

The Semi Finals is here and it was a mix of knockout punches and close ones decided on final plays in the dying minutes, but it has now set the scene for the Grand Finals next weeks!

Rilla Raptors got their game on against The Boyz, playing strong lately, the challenge was there to beat a very strong reg season team, TOmmy V got 11 , and Andy K on 10 in the heartbreaking loss, Mal P got his offense going with a 15 point game pushing the drives through the middle, Rilla Raptors now proceed to the Grand Finals!

Devestation Nation on a tear and come into the playoffs as the #1 seed in the regular season, they took on Slam Drunks with their shared scoring effort couldnt mount enough poitns to get over the constant 5-10 gap they were chasing, H Wills, ANf and J Clarke on 11 each, but Will D got 18 and Nate C got 16 in the win for Dev Nation and a trip to contest the Raptors for the title!

Mighty Ballerz getting their focus in the right place as they took on South Coast SuperSonics and won in the end as their overall height got the better of the rebounding, Ed Steed on 14 and John on 10 getting the W and trip to the Div2 grand finals, Jarrod got 6 in the loss, Sonics looking to next season to step up!

Drews Crew advance the Finals with a win o Sweaty richards, but not an easy one, only 5 points in it, the lead was in jeopardy many times as Richards pushed the offense till the very end, D Mac on 11 and Gerry H on 11 also, whilst Elliot beasted with 17 points and Sab on 10…..who will get the upper hand next week?

Good luck finalists and great season to the ones that bowed out early, seeya next season!

Stay Tuned for the UBL Grand Finals for mondays!

UBL MONDAYS PLAYOFFS is HERE!! Locked in! When it counts!

Andy King Monday Mens

The Playoffs at Berkeley is now here for the very first time on a MONDAY night! With some teams hoping for chance to scrape through to the semis, the hustle was at a high point!

The Boyz took on Dunkings, the 3 vs 6 slot and it went down with a bang as from the tip off the Dunkings struggled to adjust to the slashing game of the Boyz, facing a bare bones Boyz squad the load was carried amongst a few players…Clint C did well with 12 points to try keep the team in the running, Aiman got 8, on the other end, Tommy V a huge game for him with 28 points, just shy of his career high, cant be stopped, can he be contained? Jack B a monster on the and1s with 23 points, Unlucky Dunkings, great effort against a veteran squad, Great season and good luck in the future hope to see you back on the court at UBL soon!

South Coast Supersonics got the Div2 main events started against White Iverson, still adjusting to line up changes mid season, they had glimpses of putting a run together, but they couldnt bridge the gap by the end David K on 12 points, Kade M on 11 in the win and advancement to the Semis for Sonics, Josh B got 9 points for White Iverson, shared scoring, but just not enough of it! great season and just a little unlucky in the playoffs, seeya next season!

UBL MONDAYS Round 18! THE FINAL round! DOUBLE POINTS, PLAYOFFS next!

Andy King Monday Mens

Season 1 regular season is over!! 18 games down and the battle wear ballers get their minds set for the PLayoffs, with the ranks now sorted, the matchups are in and the week long mental prep and conditioning starts!! But this round was great, in fact it was DOUBLE POINTS!!!

The absolute game of the round, the potential Grand Finals matchup in 3 weeks, The table topping Rilla Raptors took on the #2 rank Devestation Nation, the winner would take #1 spot and it was just like a grand finals game, with the lead changing back and forth, Devestation looked to have a slight edge til the final minutes, Rilla stepped up and had the Dev NAts on the back foot, down by 3 Nate hit a bank 3 to tie, and bring the final play back to raptors, who were fouled and hit 2, only to have Larry hit a BANK 3 on the buzzer in the absolute final moments, clutch, and as a result nab the top spot going into playoffs! Great season to Rilla raptors fo staying undefeated for so long, Dev nation might have the key!

Slam Drunks a solid win on Dunkings, MIchael B on 7 points and Hayden A on 7 also in the slight loss, only less than 10 points in it, Slam Drunks take the season closer with J Clarke on 15, Connor on 12, Dunkings gained some div1 experience, but look to pursue a chip in div2 next season!

Sweaty Richards finish with a win whilst Fruit Flys ends with a loss Jack H on 7 ,Mark got 12 in the win for Sweaty Richards Fruit flies had an up and down season riddled with injuries and the serach for their structure, keen to get better and stronger for next season, but playoffs are still next!

South Coast Supersonics huge when it counts, David K on 16 points in the win, the double points win projecting them up the ladder close to the bunch as they get this W on White Iverson and Carson Bs 11. White Iverson slip out 2nd spot and will need to play the quarters to make their run to the title.

Drews Crew hanging tough and taking names, this time on the top team in the div! Mighty Ballerz, Stretch got 13 points and Jon Jo on 13 also in the loss, mainly due to the precision of Dr J aka Elliot on 28 points, who can stop that man?

Great season by all teams and the playoffs is everyones/anyones game, so get hungry and look out for the gaps int he lane, playoffs is where it counts, big prizes on the line!

UBL MONDAYS Round 17! OT in Div1! 1 round left till Playoffs!

Andy King Monday Mens

With only 1 round left of the regular season, the ladder sites nicely with the favorites on top and the teams below scraping for points as the next round is DOUBLE POINTS, so ladder points can switch up the standings and affect your playoff run, this round was crucial for those wanting to jump 2 ladder spots, as the top and bottom are tight!

Dev Nation taking on the boys in a blockbuster, 1 point in it by the final buzzer, Nathan C get bucekts with 15 points for Dev Nation, Will D on 11. The boys did well against a title favorite, Jack B opening up his offensive arsenal with 20, Tommy V did ok too with 9 points in the loss.

Mustard and Pickles closing out an epic OT game against Slam Drunks, 2 points in it by the end, nick T got close to 20 with 18 points, Dan S on 8, trading buckets and struggling with J Clarkes in side game who got 17 points, the OT loss points (2) helps with the ladder as Slam Drunks ball without Wayne their usual top scorer.

Rilla Raptors getting by with some good buckets against the Dunking Crew, hayden A got 7, And Aiman E on 7 also, unlucky form the get go as Rilla Raptors get their last win in their old jerseys. Dan B and Jon B 32 combined, Corey with 13.

MIghty Ballerz still mighty and against White Iverson they got their streak on with a convincing win before playoffs are nearing, Matt L and Stretch got 12 each, finding their way without their other big man Ed, Carson and Dylan got 6 each in the loss, looking for an offensive spark.

Drews Crew looking formidable, Elliot on 26 points, Sab on 24, almost getting cheesburgers 13 points shy, had their way with Fruit Flys, Jack H on 9 points hoping they can focus on their defensive structure to limit some opponent scoring.

UBL MONDAYS Round 16! 2 rounds left!! Last chance to push for rank!

Andy King Monday Mens

The season is drawing to a close and with 2 rounds left its the last chance to get better ladder rank and an easier path to the finals!

Devestation Nation got their streak on with Nate C finding his touch lately, slashing to 23 points, Larry on 14 in a solid W against Aimen Es 16 points for Dunkings, an unlucky loss.

Mustard and PIckles getting the jump on Rilla Raptors, a fiery match with big plays and many and1s not to mention the physical nature of the game not getting to M&P a win on Mal P and his 10 points, Corey on 8.

The Boyz finally getting strong lately with a win on Slam Drunks, James got 17 points tearing up the post, causing probs for the back line, but TOmmy V thought hed drop 1 more point with 18 and the win!

Drews crew with another win and their sights set on the playoffs, getting up on Sweaty Richards, Mark M had 6 points, James E on 6 also but had no answer for Elliot Js 15 points, Doctor Jones operating on another level.

Mighty Ballerz too big and too polished this game against the Supersonics, Jade M got 9 points with shared scoring for them in the convincing loss, stretch got 21 points taking up all positions at times to get the win.

UBL MONDAYS Round 14! New Team added to Div2! Divs even out!

Andy King Monday Mens

Round 14, and just in time for Playoff blackout period we have a new team enter, for now, Drew Crew will get a chance to compete UBL style in Season 1!

In Div 1 Rilla Raptors back to winning as they scrape one out against Slam Drunks, Wayne J always getting top scoring ranks with 22, J Clarke on 14 in the loss, Jono B had 23 in the win and Dan B 22, Raptors will try to keep their 1st spot.

Devestation Nation playing well and grooving against some of the best defenses in the league, Mustard and Pickles getting the loss this time unable to compete with the inside slashing and put backs of D-Nation, Daniel S hit some 3s to try bridge the gap for 24 points but it wasnt enough.

The Boyz looking strong led by Tommy V on 21 points, this time they showed DUnkings why they should be feared late game with a tidy run to jump ahead of the Dunkings troops, Aiman E on 13, Trent F on 9 unluckily taking home the loss.

White Iverson took on Sweaty Richards and the score keeps getting closer and closer, but result hasnt changed yet, Sweaty Richards go down despite Chris H’s 8 and Dan Ms 7, J Norriss just too good on the touch with 14 points.

Mighty Ballerz looking pretty good, just slightly better than Fruit Flys on this night, Kyle got 19, Markus on 9 in the defeat, Ed Steed putting his foot down and gettin busy with 20, Mighty Ballerz seem to be finding their rhythm!

New team Drews Crew jump out to a quick start and get a win on South Coast Supersonics, showing signs of solid basketball, Jade M on 15 points on some great buckets, but D Jones UBL Veteran got busy and scores MJs number, 23…good first in guys!

UBL MONDAYS Round 13! Rilla Raptors finally go down to Dev Nation! The streak ends..

Andy King Monday Mens

Big round for 1st times!!! the almighty Rilla Raptors go down after an 11game win streak and undefeated run since the season start…unprecedented run stopped by the Nation of Devestation, who devastated the glass and Defensive lanes, Captain Nate C stepping up big time with a cool 20 points, Andrew B on 11 whilst the Pickens and co, pushed their style of ball and fell just short mid game and couldn’t recover! A picken with 14. Good work and great game by both teams,all streaks must end eventually!

The Boyz still cruisin and on a 3 game win streak, this time they played for burgers, mustard and pickles included, and they ate em up quick going on a 21-0 run and cruising to a victory, Tommy V on 24 points, Nick T on 13 CBD on 12, M&P keen to have their full squad so they can get back to winning.

Slam Drunks taking a game off Dunkings this round, Aiman getting his beak wet with 11 points, Wayne J won the day for Slam Drunks with 26 points, pushing to the rim on every possession, which got them 20 up…Dunkings defensive structure leaving a few gaps the Drunks stumbled their way into..

Div 2 was all sorts, a lop sided game, and a close one which was a rematch of last round but with different players! White Iverson got out strong, Pierce on 15 points, smooth finishing using his rep skills to outsmart the Might Ballerz’ defense, Stretch got 15 points, locking down the paint and using the soft touch to rattle in a few. solid game,

Sweaty Richards back in strength and looking for the top spot…Mark Mon 17, James Ellem back from abroad but still staying downtown for 16, losing no momentum from when he left. Fruit Flys were in a fix, with their captain going down late game, the heads dropped and the shots weren’t falling…Jack H with a modest 6 but a huge percentage of his teams points!
