Blue Chips show promise

Milos Miletic, Captain of Blue Chips

The Blue Chips have successfully started the quest for the new championship ring by beating No Limit Soljas by one point.

The beginning of the game showed no indication that we are going to struggle. Bryan Gadson’s, a.k.a. B-Gadson, shooting gave us a seven-point lead.

However, after that, and all the way until five minutes left in the second half, No Limit Soljas were in command. Those guys played really fine ball, and it would not have been undeserved if they got the ‘W’ on Monday.

Nonetheless, luck follows the brave, right? So, Gerald “Mr. Cheeks” Mickie, and Mark “Primetime” Aikens took over the game with several “and one!” plays to lead us to the ultimate victory.

We were lucky tonight, and No Limit Soljas may have been a better team, but the individual quality of Blue Chips prevailed. Summa summarum – Blue Chips are 1-0.

Every journey begins with a small step. It is better if that step is forward, and ours is. Take care, and word to the God.

Team Speed 77, Sigma Epsilon 20

TJ Riggie, Captain of Team Speed

Team Speed, the 2006 Flag Football Champions, are back to their dominating ways as the 2007 IM basketball league kicked off this week.

Team Speed built their lead utilizing a full-court press that forced Sigma Upsilon to turn the ball over leading to easy fast break points.

Sigma Upsilon showed their pride as they played hard until the final buzzer, but Team Speed’s Combination of defensive trapping and accurate shooting proved to be too much. It was a balanced attack as TJ Riggie, Fred Lewis, Dan Brechbill, Brett Prate, Leo Sorice, Andy Pridonic, Neil Luketic and Ali all scored in double figures.

Team Speed’s next game is Wednesday Feb. 3rd, 9 p.m. at the wellness center.

Glory Days stifles Team We Got Next

Tyler Trutza, Glory Days captain

For the second game in a row, Team Glory Days played hard and well throughout the entire game on Thursday night. Although their opponent’s team name was We Got Next, Team Glory Days spoke of who’s next. While We Got Next was constantly looking for someone to guard, Eric Hughes of Team Glory Days put in a quiet 25 while shutting down We Got Next’s best player “Chicago.” Although We Got Next played well, Team Glory Days showed its true form in the second half, going on a 15-0 run midway though the second half leading to a 50-25 lead. While continually forcing the ball down the court, and with the inside presence of Mitch Hutchinson and David Wasserman, We Got Next ended up falling to Team Glory Days, 60-29, thus pulling Team Glory Days’ record to 2-0 with an average winning margin of 34.5 points. Good luck to the rest of the teams the rest of the year.
