UBL Saturdays UOW Open Day….Round 5..2OT in Div1

Andy King UBL Saturday

OPEN DAY!!!

With crowd sizes at record numbers, the teams put on a show, early season players still get their intensity on.

Has Beanz back to their winning ways, mainly because of Azza P on a massive 36 points, casual point scoring for him, toppled Blouses ending their 5 win streak, for the current champs.Al got his long range going trying to keep up the race, managing 27 points, only 5 total points in it by the final buzzer

MIC starting to get some momentum as they take down the Miami Vice crew, MICs quick offense and athletic finishes finall paying off for the team, Chen H Li on 19 points in the win, an underwhelming effort from Vice with Ftiz on 12 and Joel on 8…locked down on D!

Pistons and Balls deep in the game of the round, double OT!!! With the score doing back and forth, noone could get the lead and late game even scores, Aron G got 12, and hit one of his 4 threes to get up by 3!! but wait, its not over, on the last play, the massive pass went to Dan Muller who performed a Lebron-esque ice cold turn around bank shot, drawing the game up and forcing an over time that didnt make a winner, so it went to penalty shots, Greg vs Shannon, Greg got the better, hittin all his shots late to clinch the win.

The SUmmoners surprised by the subs on the matchup, took on Lavallerz, and were keen for their first win, Jourdain on 22, hitting shots from everywhere, James sharpshooters Murph on 19, doing his damage from long range, but it wasnt enough, 2 more 3s wouldve helped!!

Cunning Ultra on a big matchup with the WEe Giants who were on a 3 game win streak and saw it come to an end, Jarrod with 20, matched by Noah WG on 20 also in the close match. Wee Giants height not outdoing the small ballin Cunning Ultra.

F1L0s cruisin, Uni Riggs frantic to stop the 3s. but Brett B so chill hitting huge 3s and getting 2 short of 30 (28) in the win, Vikus and Kitto got their 2 points buckets on, 19 and 14 respectively. F1L0s new favorite?? or does Replacements have something to say?

UBL Saturdays @ UOW….Round 5..OT in Div1!

Andy King UBL Saturday

Div 1 had all the action this round, starting with a Haz Beanz vs MIC face off, quickness and hustle vs structure and mid range efficiency, Has Beanz get the W in this one behind Elliot J on 19 and Sean Q on a 17 points tear form the get go, Lui got 14, and Chen 12, unlucky they couldnt close the gap before full time.

Blouses and Pistons in the game of the round, Overtime!!!, Blouses had the lead most way, only just, but PIstons kept coming at them finally getting some clutch plays towards the the end to force extra time, Ed B on 13, Connor B 11, Pistons had Greg M step up again with 17 points, Dan M 13. Great game closed out by the defending champs of Div1 vs the Div2 champs.

Miami Vice playing the opponents Ball Deep well getting big Man Mat L into foul trouble early, with a man down, not much could stop Dan Ws 34 points, not even jay van M on 19 and Carlson on 14, great matchup decided by a mere 4 points.

F1l0s took on Replacements and hammered the crew wearing blue with Threes and fast break points, Brett B on 16 points, whilst the Replacements had Matt C on 11, Sam K on 10, not able to put a big enough run together to overcome the F1l0s chemistry.

Wee giants looking strong and taking names, Summoners fall short with Drew P on 7 points, jordan for Wee Giants got 12 in a shared effort for scoring, some tall guys in this game, but no dunks…this time!

UBL Saturdays @ UOW….Round 4, almost OTs, lead changes frequent!

Andy King UBL Saturday

Round 4 is getting tense, with Div1 and Div2 games close for the majority, the last second efforts of some rewarded, but others, not as compensated for their efforts, so what happened?

Haz Beanz in Div 1 took on Miami Vice, and Has Beanz got started early and never looked back, Elliot J on 22, Andy W on 15 outshining the Dan Duo P & W! 23 points for Perg and 17 for Wiz! a convincing win for the Has Beanz, who have been looking to mount a run.

Blouses in a thriller against balls Deep, Jay Van M hungry for buckets early with 32 massive points, but in the final moments it was a bucket difference, the last minute had the whole gym watching as the final moments were decided by some free throws but not much before that a huge come back 3 pointer on a set play from Tim T and blouses, getting it even then getting an extra bucket to win, great close matchup!

Pistons still firing well, taking on MIC, and the boys got hot on the break first, trying to answer Pistons halfcourt in side out game, Chen L on 14 points, jett on 13 in the loss, Greg M led his squad to the win with 16 as Div2 champs continue to take down any1 that stands n their way!

Wee giants still crushing it, and putting numbers and blocks on the opponents, Noah on 19 and Tim Wall on 14 for the Wee-Gs another win in a row, but Lavallerz stood up to them joaquin on 13 and NIck on 10, who can match the size?

Fil0s looking back to their former Div1 selves, having fun and chilling all at the same time, and winning, this time on The Summoners, Luke got 10 to resist the cahrge, But oscar on 15 and a shared effort got the F1L0s the win!

UnI Riggs, still unnamed and still bulding, get a much needed win on Cunning ultra, Brett on 20, marty on 10 in the not so ideal result for them, Uni Riggs had Vikus eat glass and take names in the post with 17.

UBL Saturdays @ UOW….Round 3! Ankle breakers & tip jams!

Andy King UBL Saturday

Div1 is all up side down!! with foundation div1 teams going down to the underdogs everywhere!!

Balls Deep slippery and too good in the middle against the new formed Has Beanz, Elliot J still getting his numbers with 13 points in the loss, Robbie N on 13 and Carlson and Matt got 10 each in the win for the first time this season! nice work go balls deep!

Blouses looking untouchable for now, their cylinders firing with Ed B on 16 points, Harro on 15 points, with the small ballin team getting their other guys going too, Kang wins, fatality…MIC had Captain Charlie step up and eat glass on his way to a cool 20, MIC playing well lately.

Pistons the Div2 champs coming up to the big boys unsure of their fate, but i think its established, they belong in Div1 taking down many time ex cahmps Miami Vice, Chi had a mad game with 24 points and Joel E on 16, but Greg M putting his midrange and 3s for 19 points in the PIstons win!

Replacements getting no stop signs on the way to the bank as Sam KH stepping up his game with 22 points, clipping the usual scoring leader Brendan who got 17, Cunning Ultra going down despite Marty s and his 19 points, still merging in process they look to take out teams once they get their groove.

Lavallerz took on Uni Riggs, still not renamed and showing some of former greatness, or thereabouts, luni Riggs had no early answer for james on 23, 3s like layups at times,gap too much for D Breslin on 19 and his crew, who went down this time.

Wee Giants showing the league they are not backing down to nobody, with around the back no look passes and allyoop dunks just some of the plays that got them a win over the smaller F1L0s, Noah on 22 points, Tim W on 12. whilst Froi lost bu got 18 points, Russ 8…

UBL Saturdays @ UOW….Round 2! Quick starts and slow finishes, the grind begins!

Andy King UBL Saturday

Round 2 in effect, New teams are still finding their feet and analyzing the opponents before making a run at the division title in many many games.

Div 1 had the Haz Beanz take on the Pistons, 2 former champions ready to test Div1 vs Div2 at its best, Elliot J got his beast mode on top scoring for has Beanz, the matchups were good but has beanz got out early and didnt look back, Pistons first Div1 loss.

MIC locked in and now know their enemy after spending some time working out the kinks of their tactics, look to be stepping it up and getting a win on Balls Deep, jay V M on 23 points leading the Balls Deep crew, not enough against the long range bombs from Dendi, and MIchael charging through getting buckets with 17 each. Great win the division is close!

Blouses had a tight game against Miami Vice and got the better for them in the end on a shared scoring effort with huge defensive stops to stifle the Vice offense, Dan W got his buckets, finding gaps to get his smooth jumper off for 18 points, But Connors 10 just slightly over shadowed everyones 8s and 9s as the team all got involved in the win, Blouses style…

Div 2 had short round with a few games that simply got out of hand scorewise, but reasonably out of hand at about 20ish.

Cunning Ultra got their Cap back on deck as Marty S got 24 points in his first round back and the win, against Summoners, a new team building chemistry, everyone getting involved, Drew P on 10 and Luke on 9, going down but having fun doing it!

Replacements looking to be the big Dawgs of Div2 now, get another win on the downtowners and new team Lavallers, James with some huge buckets with 27 in the loss, a tough loss but great effort against a well oiled squad of the Replacements!

UBL Saturdays @ UOW….Round 1! Season 17 tips off! New teams, new challenges!

Andy King UBL Saturday 0 Comments

Welcome to SEASON 17 of UBL @ URAC!!! Welcome to the new teams, and the current teams goodluck in the regular season!

Blouses the defending champions faced off against a new looking Haz Beanz, minus a few Puljics..Blouses went straight for the man on man D, forcing some 1v1 matchups, Elliot and Sean getting the scoring going for Has Beanz but Blouses,Tim and Al pushing the midrange and getting the W, keeping their grandfinals momentum.

Miami Vice loving the return from the break hungry for some regular wins again,MIC went down with some great shooting by Dan W, top scoring, MIC mounted a good back and forth for most of the game but in the last third of the match Miami ran away with it, captilizing on some turnover from MIC.

Pistons had some doubters ,mainly internal, but the 2 time Div 2 champs come into Div1 with a BANG! And W! Greg M got the boys going with shots from all around, keeping his efficiency going throughout, Dan M got some 3s, John and Bud controlled the glass, Reggie protected the ball and kept turnovers low, Balls Deep seemed Rusty, post game interview with star 2 guard Carlson said itjust wasnt there, the break making the build up of rust too much to shake off in time for the final buzzer.

Replacements looking the favourite based on last seasons standings, with Pistons trying their hand at Div1, its theirs for the taking, Uni Riggs looking very different as they used their core squad to find a few new pieces which seem to fit perfectly, chemistry will come. Brendan and Ray carrying the scoring load, in the win, Uni Riggs, unlucky in a shared scoring effort, glimpses of greatness viewed throughout.

The battle of the new teams! LaVallerz took down Summoners in a Huge way, main James Murphy hit what onlookers reported as ‘like 10 threes’ as he bombed away trouncing the Summoners, a spread scoring effort, and a lot of effort which will translate so some wins in the near rounds no doubt! Welcome to both teams!

Cunning Ultra have merged with House Dunk and its looking like a success! Taking down a depleted F1l0s, Froi getting some nice buckets to help his squad to within 10 points of a win, but just short this time, Connor played well in the win, more chemistry to build, could this be a top 2 team this season?

URAC Season 16 GRAND Finals! Pistons Take Div2 Back2Back, Blouses dream run beat Vice!

Andy King UBL Saturday

A big season leading to a much anticipated grand finals for Season 16, and the final teams aren’t as they used to be in previous years showing the emergence of the new youth and next generation of ballers in UBL, and there is a Strong presence in Div2 going for their back 2 back, looking for future greatness in Div1!

Division 1 saw the big dynasty of Miami Vice on their three peat go against the underdog Blouses, who have fought their way from the Quarter finals on a bare roster overcoming the impossible to land at the finals no doubt up against a massive task to bring down the Black and Silver Miami Vice crew.

The game was bucket for bucket 3 for 3, and fastbreak for fast break, Tim T getting out strong at the start along with Harro who ended up with a double double 19 points and 10 rebounds taking it upon himself to get buckets, Ed Steed the difference with 19 rebounds, 9 offensive, and 12 points for a solid big man double double.

Dan W was hoping to shoot the lights out but wasn’t as efficient from 3 but still notched 19 points in the loss, along with 13 rebounds, a BOSS double double, Chi Ly had 12 points with some solid 3s and Cj K on 10 points and 12 rebs for a solid performance, but not all the Js were dropping for Vice, The rebounding all the difference in the end by 20 less than Blouses, overall shooting percentage was only 27% vs 43% of Blouses, even though Blouses turned the ball over 15 times, Miami couldn’t capitalise and therefore misses out on their 2nd 3peat, unlucky Vice, always a solid competitor!

Congrats to Blouses, a huge Grand Finals win after a loose season, showing never giving up counts for everything! SEASON 16 Div1 CHAMPS!


In Div 2, Pistons had a great season, backing up from their Grand Finals win last season, they are at it again and hungry for another title to add to their legacy, this time they are up against the Replacements, finally finding their chemistry, and making it through tot he Grand Finals looking to topple the dominance of the Pistons.

Reggie came out strong, a very very efficient game, he ran the point and got the rest going, giving options to his team-mates, and pushing the break every time, he ended up with a game high 20 points, on 60% shooting, along with 7 rebs. Greg McDonald always putting in work got 14 points 7 rebs and 3 steals, making plays down the stretch, Dan Muller long range coverage in effect with 2 3s and 12 points!

Brendan always on his game got some shots up to the effect of 12 points, and 9 rebs, Sam Kh 9, and Matt c and Ray on 8 in a spread scoring effort, but at times the Replacements looked stifled by the perimeter D of the Pistons, needing a point guard to get some penetration or rolls off a pick to get the offence moving, with a 30% FG for the game, Pistons managed 48% on more assists, the rest of the stats mirrored almost, only the extra shots and quick start meaning the difference in this one

Pistons back up their last Championship with another one!! Congrats to the Pistons, a strong team but not for their hard work and team chemistry, back to back titles wouldn’t be possible!! Season16 Div2 Champs!

Great season to all teams, well done for sticking to your game and balling every weekend! Keep your mindset ready for the next season! Season 17 is upon us in a few weeks!!

URAC Season 16 SEMI Finals! lock down Defense, fouls everywhere! Finals are set!

Andy King UBL Saturday

The Final 4 of each division face off for the Semi Finals this round, and it was a huge round of big time step ups by players to fight for their lives to keep in contention and advance to the big show…the GRAND FINALS!

Blouses in Div1 , a massive huge and almost impossible win against a REBELs crew not down as many players as Blouses. The points gap wasnt huge only a few buckets in it, with REBELs up by 7 with 3 mins left, all they had to do was hold up the play and close out the game, but Blouses had other ideas, pushing the defense and the break getting fouled in the process, and Tim T got 28 which helped, and big man Ed Steed with 14. Ross M on 17 for Rebs Fil M on 12, not enough to get to the finals this time!

Miami Vice looking at a huge run of championships, looking at the Haz Beanz hoping all their cogs lock into place and perform well come gametime, and they did, Dan W with 20, Joel and Chi getting 14 each and the convincing win, Boz top scored showing hes just clutch when needed, 14 points from all spots, Brook and Joe on 10, the midrange not dropping as much as usual. Has Beanz down some of their regulars that made this rivalry the hot ticket for UBL Saturdays, but the torch may be slowly transferring, Miami look to next week, is it their time again?

Replacements getting buckets this round, taking on Uni Riggs, Mos T racking up some fouls in the first half, and 12 points for the game to lead his team, Michael B got 10 as well in the loss, heartbreaking but keen to reform and get a better start next season as the chemistry continues to build. Brendan, the beast, 15 points for Replacements, Matt C and Sam Kh on 9 each. Replacements advance to the finals, to face their old school rivals, Pistons who are reigning champs!

Pistons trying to go back to back even without some crucial pieces, and the only team standing in their way to advancing was the formidable F1l0s, with James headlining with 15 points, they came out strong and kept up the pace, points back and forth as these two teams do, but in the end, Reggie and Greg M get 12 each and the win by 2 and a bit buckets. F1l0s unlucky again, but they have a never say die attitude which may get them to the finals again next season, Pistons and Replacements face off next week!

Good luck to the teams that will advance, and to the rest, great effort!, and see you next season!

URAC Season 16 Playoffs are here!! Epic advancements! Quarter Finals!

Andy King UBL Saturday

The Playoffs are here!!

With the top 6 going through to the PLayoffs, the top 2 of each division get advanced automatically to the Semi Final Round, leaving 3v6 and 4v5 to battle for the chance to advance or to go home early!

Blouses started off the Div1 Quarters against the Show time MIC crew, Dendi getting some good buckets from beep before giong down to an ankle injury, the other boys stepped up, GD on 9 but not enough to surmount Tim Ts 14 points and Connor Bs 10 in the win and chance to play for a Grandfinals seed in the next playoff round, Great season MIC, now you are well accustomed to the teams, watch out next season for this team to get a good start!

Miami Vice getting their championship swagger on and faced off against Balls Deep, a great team but flaky at times, their defense not able to stop Dan W and a huge game on 28 points, splashing buckets from mid range to deep, Miami another title run in their sights, Balls Deep a valiant effort this season but fell short even though Jay Van M hit 17 and the cannon with 9.

Division 2 was pumping and so was the scorelines showing there was a distinct gap in who ‘showed up’ for their team in every sense of the word, hustle, grit, and high focus was required to get the extra possessions, and the advancement to the next round.

Pistons the defending champs were up against the upstart House Dunk, led by Kieran K on 18 points, doing all he can with calculated moves but the individual effort wasnt enough to bury Greg Ms 17 and Bud Gs 16, going down to the post and back out, whilst exposing that middle of the key area in the zone, can PIstons go back 2 back? House Dunk, good season, seeya next season for more challenges!

Uni Riggs getting their pieces together for the playoffs, and MOS T felt like he wanted to play, and he ripped in 22 points on the Depleted Cunning Ultra, Michael K on 8 MArty S on 7 in the loss, going down by 10+ the usual hustle just wanted there all game ! Cunning ultra had a solid season fighting back mid way to rise off the bottom despite the external factors, great work Cunnings!

Round 17!..Regular Season is over! Has Beanz & Replacements top their Divisions!

Andy King UBL Saturday

The 16th Season of UBL Saturday regular season has come to an end and the Divisions are nice and close to finish, not many points between the top teams which will make for yet another great playoffs with a no doubt epic finals!

Has Beanz the #1 team in Division 1 finish off with a win on #2 seed REBELs, revenge for the last time they faced off with the contorvesial time expiry foul call, the basketball gods honoured the effort from Elliot J on 18 points in the win, ROss M on 12 for Rebels, so close to the mark, 1 bucket in it! Rebels finishing 2nd and will advance to Semis, Has Beanz will be waiting for them if they meet again.

Balls Deep a solid game on BLouses, a mix matched crew on both sides, Carlson stepped up as he has been lately, with 23, taking down BLouses and Connor b and Harro got 15 each as BLouses finish 3rd in the final standings, Balls Deep slipped a few games back and end on 5th.

Miami Vice showing up this game and take on the high energy MIC, a game which got scrappy and physical, Miami Vice taking a personal approach and pushing the break, the tempo and other things, Dan W keeps his head down and puts in work with 19, CJ too on 17, whilst Dendi getting 21 only to be ousted early in the game before what looked like a huge game, Chen L got 21 also keeping up the pace. MIC end on 6th place and scrap into the playoffs, Miami ending on 4th not the same kinda finish as previous seasons, the will to win is more than ever.

Div 2 sparked a bunch of close as games, 2-3 to 6 points max and it was good to see. Replacements finish a great season with a win and a number 1 seed for Div2, this game was a potential finals preview with PIstons, the current champs finishing 3rd, and checking out what they may face in a few weeks, Brendan 18 points a beast from everywhere, Bud green contrasted that to his post game with 16, With both teams strong and feeling confident, who will get the upperhand if they face off?!

Cunning Ultra new team, get a quick win on F1l0s, who finish the season in #2 spot earning them a rest and advancement to the semis, Mark got 12 in this game, closed out at the end from CUnits, Nate C on 20, they finish 4th in the season and will face off in the quarter finals for chance to advance.

Wee-Giants, the ersearch over, not making playoffs due to late entry, they entered the Div with a BANG and finished it off with this win on House Dunk, Kieran K had 14 in the loss, Tim Wall 20 for the winners Wee-Giants, House dunk scrape into 6th seed for a playoffs run.

Great season to all for all who didnt make the playoffs! so stay tuned for more action, the PLAYOFFS IS UPON US!
