DIV2 Consolation Game (8:45am) – GFC (2-4) vs CSBC (1-5)
GFC routed CSBC by 19 points in Week 1 behind Brandon Brown’s 25 points & 6 rebounds, but both teams are different now, showing significant progress throughout the season. The “big men” of both teams will play a big role in deciding who the winner will be as rebounding & maintaining possessions will be keys in this game. A fun matchup to look out for will be All Star teammates, Brandon Brown & Mu Hwang.

DIV1 Consolation Game (9:45am) – JWU (1-5) vs DLP (1-5)
It’s fitting that these 2 teams will be facing off against each other in their final game as both teams had high expectations heading into the 2K12 season. These teams just couldn’t get into the rhythm & now find themselves in the consolation bracket of a very competitive DIV1. The key for JWU is to control the rebounding & flow of the game as DLP loves to jump out on the fast break. Protecting the perimeter is important as well as DLP has 3-4 guys that can knock down the long ball.

DIV2 3rd Place Game (10:45am) – ICC (3-3) vs IVCC (2-4)
Their game in Week 2 ended strangely as ICC had a 3-point lead with less than 10 seconds to go, but IVCC didn’t foul them & let the clock run out & lost 36-33. You can be sure that IVCC won’t let that happen again after a strong showing during Playoff Weekend, taking out CSBC. Look for 3 Point Shootout Champion, Reggie Bryant, to knock down some long-balls & for All Star Joel Ruiz to have a big game as both will try to lead their teams to 3rd place in DIV2.

DIV1 Consolation Game (11:45am) – PBC (3-3) vs POP (2-4)
These 2 teams were supposed to square off in Week 4, but a forfeit by PBC postponed that meeting & in doing so, ultimately cost them the 4th seed & Championship Playoff berth in DIV1. POP has been without their leading scorer, Drew Bryant, for several weeks now & will need someone to step up should he miss their final game. All Star Kenneth Lou seems poised to do so, but the strong, hustle play of PBC’s Keenan Henry may pose a problem.

DIV1 3rd Place Game (12:45pm) – HTSB (2-4) vs FCI (2-4)
FCI found themselves in a great position heading into Playoff Weekend. With both POP unable to play in their scheduled playoff game & PBC unavailable for the time slot, as the 6th seed, FCI moved up in the rankings to face an undefeated CWC with the winner advancing to the DIV1 Championship Game. They ended up losing that game & now find themselves playing for 3rd place. HTSB’s All Star duo of Ruben Carreon & Jesse Munrayos played great in the All Star Game & will look to carry that momentum into this game. However, HTSB will need to find someone to match up against FCI’s Ian Mesa, who is a terror down low. 

DIV2 Championship Game (1:45pm) – TUMC (5-1) vs FBC (5-1)
These 2 teams have some history since Week 3 & have been eyeing each other ever since. After suffering a buzzer-beating loss to ICC in Week 1, TUMC has rattled off 5 straight wins & is heading into the DIV2 Championship Game with a lot of confidence. TUMC’s Coach/Player Sal Tiongco said that his team has worked extremely hard this year & the hard work has paid off as they look to carry on their win streak. On the other side, however, is FBC whose only loss came at the hands of TUMC in Week 3. In an interview, Team Captain Miguel Medina expressed his team’s desire to face TUMC in the Championship Game & now the time has come.

A big key in this game is found in FBC’s All Star, Nick Kinnart. Nick had a strong showing in the All Star game & will be a big factor for this game as well. Another person to watch on FBC is Mark Futalan, last year’s Rebounding Champion. Because Mark has missed a few games this season, it’s very easy to overlook him, but he’s definitely a player that can easily erupt for a double-double.

DIV1 Championship Game (2:45pm) – CWC (6-0) vs FLC (6-0)
These 2 teams have been on a tear this season & inevitably would have to cross paths sometime. That time is now – the DIV1 Championship Game. Boasting unblemished records, this is going to be an intriguing matchup, a Clash of the Titans in more ways than one.

As power-houses in DIV1, these 2 juggernauts will finally square off & the play of the bench may be the key. CWC’s bench is a lot deeper, bringing in shooters like Joshua Freedenburg & rebounders like Greg Neal, whereas FLC’s bench is limited to just 2 people. However, I wouldn’t count out FLC as they have been doing this all season long.

Another titanic matchup is found in the middle with All Stars & MVP Candidates, John Temidara (CWC) & Bryce Anderson (FLC). We got a little preview of this on Saturday during the All Star game where both players were guarding each other. John Temidara won the battle, contributing more points & rebounds & leading his All Star team to victory, but will he win the war for the Championship Game?

It’s also interesting to note that on an individual level, John & Bryce are also head-to-head in leading the league in points per game (John – 22.6 PPG; Bryce – 22.0 PPG) & rebounds (John 14.8 RPG; Bryce – 11.0 RPG).

So don’t miss out the exciting close to the JWU Basketball League 2K12, this Saturday 04/28/12.





AS1 78 – AS2 58

The 2nd JWU Basketball All Star game didn’t disappoint as both teams played hard & put on a great show for everyone. Both teams were a little short-handed as the AS1 team, coached by Benny Del Castillo of JWU, were missing 2 players from PBC (starting shooting guard, John Chun & Randy Choi), & 2 players from TUMC (Alfred Labrador & Lester Concepcion) & AS2 team, coached by Manny Medina of FBC, were missing starting small forward, Drew Bryant (POP) & starting shooting guard, Jeff Masangcay (DLP). Sliding in as the starting shooting guard for AS1 was JWU’s Jason Acda & Dario Sanchez got the call at small forward along with Nick Kinnart at point guard for AS2.

The AS2 team started off quickly & set the tone for the 1st half. Nick Kinnart couldn’t miss & was hitting from everywhere, scoring 11 points in the 1st half. Bryce Anderson also started strong, scoring 8 points in the paint. The AS2 team led by as many as 7 points in the 1st half. However, the front court of AS1 featuring MVP Candidate John Temidara, Kevin Perriman & Ruben Carreon couldn’t be stopped as they combined for 33 of their team’s 39 points in the 1st half. At the end of the 1st half, it was a close game with AS1 39 – AS2 36.

The 2nd half saw the AS1 team pick up their defense & force turnovers, which seemed to be the difference in the game. This led to many fast break dunks by John Temidara which brought on cheers from the crowd. AS1’s Jesse Munrayos attacked the defense & finished with a game-high 7 assists. Nick Kinnart carried the AS2 team as far as he could, scoring an additional 9 points in the 2nd half & finishing with 20 points & Curtis Carter (last year’s All Star MVP) began to find his stroke as he finished with 12 points, connecting on 4 from downtown. However, AS1’s Brandon Brown scored 10 of his 12 points in the 2nd half & Ruben Carreon added another 10 to bring his point total to 19 as they pulled away from the AS2 team & finished them off by 20 points.
