UBL Saturdays …. Season 17 Playoffs!! Semi Finals upsets! Finals are set!

Andy King UBL Saturday

Playoffs gets deeper into the story as the Semi Finals got lit up with big starts, big buckets, big defense, and big drama no doubt all the usual UBL competitiveness you’d expect when a championship dream is on the line.

Div 2 started out with a big time upset, Pistons the Div2 upstarts, take on the championship franchise the Has Beanz, and it didnt go exactly to plan this time around, Pistons got hot to start off and left an insurmountable gap which the Has Beanz got close to but never close enough to pull themselves out of their shooting woes, Joe P the veteran got 11 and Elliot J on 9, Pistons on the other hand had a shared scored effort due to their extra passes and efficient shooting, Reggie coming up big with 14 points keeping the Pistons composed as Greg M hit 12 to help get their place in the Grand Finals. Unlucky, but Well Done Has Beanz on another great season, it shows that any thing is possible in the playoffs if you heave enough heart and chemistry!

Blouses pushing forward with their eyes on a 2 peat, hungry for the chance to prove they are supreme ballers once again, Al B came to play and pushed forward to ice the game behind some good team work, it was fast break and 3s for blouses vs paint attack and floaters from Vice with the Mid rangers taken care of by top scorer Dan W, unlucky in this game the former champs Miami Vice bow out early, but a great season with some new faces, BLouses go on to face Pistons in a blockbuster event next Saturday!

Cunning Ultra New Team aint so new no mo! establishing themselves as a force, Marty S led the charge with 17, his teeth all lined up and sunken into the mid range game, Jarrod on 11 in the win and advancement against Replacements, who have had a great season to end short in the playoffs, Brendan on 18 points, the blue crew couldnt get enough of a run together to bridge the gap, the crowd on the side of the Cunning Ultras, helping them to a solid win, destiny awaits!

F1Los and Summoners started the game off shaky, with both sides looking for a rhythm, Brett B got it going just in time with 19 points, Mark handled glass affairs in the paint with 11, Summoners the surprising most improved team came out ready to play and had some good buckets keeping it close and low scoring, Drew P on 8 and JOsh on 8 also, they had a good season, watch out for these guys in the new season! F1L0s go on to face the Ultra Cunning crew next Sat!

UBL Saturdays …. Season 17 Playoffs!! Quarter Finals Action!

Andy King UBL Saturday

For the 17th time in history, UBL URAC Playoffs is here in the comp that started it all!!!

Div1 had some classic matchups, some new ones too, Miami Vice took on Balls Deep and Shannon felt his knees were in the right place for him to be aggressively and attacked the rim getting 20 points to go, but the ex champs Vice had another title run that wasnt ending here, Dan W and Chi Ly on 16 points each…solid effort from the duo. Miami Advance to play Blouses!

Pistons werent sure they could stand off with the Div1 teams as they rose from the training grounds of Div2 not so long ago! and here they are, sneaking a quick with on MIC in the QUarter Finals! Dan W raining threes down, enough hitting the mark to top score with 17 and reggie with 12 to help out, Dendi did what he could to stop the bleeding, with 26 points of his own, great effort MIC, big time hustle but unluck this season! Seeya next yer for more!

Div 2 was as usually crazy and up and down like the fastbreaks, that frequent after every loose ball or rebound, Tipping off with Summoners as they take on Lavallerz for aclose matchup but not so close by the end, with Lavallerz main scorers a little more quiet than usual James and Alex on 6 each, Bu the spread scoring and extra pass of Summoners got the W in the end, Luke on 11, Joe on 10 and Drew on 9, good luck in the rest of the playoffs!

Cunning Ultra was not looking like the new team today with a huge win over Vikas and his 20 points, and his crew the Sneaky Prawns, and it was a big gap for what seemed like a close game at times, Kieran getting his numbers with 31 points, Marty S pre-teeth got 28 to beat his way in and teeth out. Cunning ultra advance good luck to all know will be there!

Andy King UBL Saturday

The origional UBL comp comes to the end of its 17th season and it looks like the competition is close, so close the favorites arent so clear.

With playoffs next week there were just a few match ups needed to complete for final points.

Has Beanz took on MiC and it was close from the startand the end result wasnt far off, with 1-10 margin, Has Beanz complete the season with with a 12 game win streak, and favorites for the title, but anyone can have a bad night, so the title is up for grabs! MIC didnt have enough to get ove the line, Deni on 13 points not enough this tiem as Brook got 18 and JOe 17 for Has beanz MIC take the 5th spot and look to the playoffs to bounce back!

Pistons and BLouses had a great matchup up this round with the final score not going the way of the Blouses boys, defending champs, Greg M got 16 in the win for Pistons, Al B coming off historic performance this week on 28 points, Blouses finish 2nd and Pistons 4th, playoff hopes very much high with a great win on a great team.

Miami Vice continue to won and chase their former glory, Dan W hot on 13, Chi Ly getting some volume in with 12 whereas balls deep fell short of the mark by 10, a spread scoring effort not enough to get Ws
Miami Vice finish 3rd, and Balls Deep an unfortunate last due to some absences. keen to turn it around int he playoffs.

Fil0s cap the season off with a win on Replacements, who are stitting and finsihthe season on 2nd place, F1L0s a 1st place team since way back, 13 game win streak also and looking good, Brendan got 16 in the loss, unable to cover some mismatches that cost them buckets. Brett B on 21 afor F1los as well as mark on 17 for some scoring.

Cunning Ultra take 3rd place, Summoners take 4th place, LaVallerz 5th place and Sneaky Prawns 6th, Wee Giants exit early due to players going home!

UBL Saturdays S17….Round 18! 1 round left! playoffs in sight!

Andy King UBL Saturday

One round left after this round, and teams in the top 6 look to solidify their positions and the lower ranks try to get into the 6 to get a chance to playoff for the grand finals.

Has Beanz on a tear and sitting on top of Div1 taking down Balls deep in a too close for comfort for teams at opposite ends of the ladder, Azza P got 20 showing his skills, improving every game, how good can he get? Carlson on 20 in a close game showing players came ready to ball.

Blouses take down MIC this round the well knit unit getting a big game from Al B on 28, MIC had their main man Blackhole Dendi who notched 26 with some tidy range on show.

Miami Vice took on Pistons and had a short victory behind Dan W with 19 points as they took apart the Pistons defence with extra passes. Dan M got 14 with his range doing the talking, the chemistry of Vice too much this time.

lavallerz had a good game against Wee Giants to tip off Div2 and Tim wall had a great scoring game with 26 points but even that wasnt enough so stop the spread scoring and help of Lavallerz..James on 13 in the win.

Cunning Ultra slid past Sneaky Prawns as Vikas got 20 being right in the position to score off the bat, Jarrod got 24 points in the win and used his height and post skills to ensure his FG% in the paint was on point.

F1Los took down Summoners the 15 point win spearheaded by the post play or Marc, Andrei had his shot hitting the back of the net the right way, a good team effort in a crucial time for alot of teams.

Andy King UBL Saturday

What a round, in the middle part of the season, the matchups never go how you expect.

Azza P and Andrew did well on offense and they kept the game in reach the whole time.

Pistons play a big game against the balls Deep crew and clip them by 1 point just like the first game, Trent F loving the short three point line with 14 points, whilst Jay van M was out to get buckets and keep the BD crew in reach and a hopeful win against a surging Pistons squad.

Miami Vice taking down MIC this round, Dendi getting his stroke going after some nice step backs and deep shits towards 19 points, but wait, The win was awarded to the Vice boys, Dan W on a huge 32 points in the win!

Cunning Ultra new teamDF taking their stride as momentum and take down the Sneaky prawns as Vikus got 14 but had no answers for the Cunning Ultra barrage, keiran on 21 points in the win for the successful merger team!

F1Los faced off against the brightly colored SUmmoners, trying to blind the opponents with not only their jerseys but also their offense and mid range prowess, ti wasnt enough this time. Oscar got 12 in the win for F1l0s, Luke on 12 for the Summoners as they ell short by just over 10 points!
