Power Rankings

1. Team McNichols (The Bucket List) – 3-0

Team McNichols impressed us once again this week after winning a nail-biter against Team Rhum by the score of 59-57. Romeo Magloire looked unstoppable once again as he scored 17 for the team. They look to stay undefeated and atop the leaderboard next week against Team Lerman.

 

2. Team Dean (Sunset Foods) – 2-1 

Team Dean picked up their second victory in a row, beating the previously undefeated Team Berkson by 6 points, 60-54. Michael Mulroe dropped 23 points this week after scoring 24 last week. I warned you all last week about this team picking up momentum. Team Schwartz will try to slow them down next week.

 

3. Team Rhum (Rockin’ Refuel) – 2-1

Team Rhum deserves to stay in the #3 slot as they narrowly lost a heartbreaker to the #1 seed Team McNichols. Adam Rhum and Andrew Marks both had 18 points. They are 2-1 on the year, and look to get right back into the winning column soon. They will have that opportunity next week against Team Mones.

 

4. Team Berkson (StudentCity) – 2-1

They suffered their first loss this week, losing to a very talented Team Dean by only 6 points. Sam Selby was their leading scoring with 13 as they spread the ball around nicely. They will try to keep up with Teams Dean, Rhum, and McNichols in the standings, and could use a win next week against a winless Team Zhang to do so.

 

5. Team Neuhausen (Live Clean CHI) – 2-1

Team Neuhausen got right back into the swing of things after a tough loss last week by beating Team Zhang 73-49 this week. The trio of Evan Zahniser, Todd Neuhausen, and Calvin Kang combined for 41 points. Watch out for this offensive powerhouse going forward. Up next for them is Team Kaplan.

 

6. Team Lerman (SLA Insurance Blue) – 1-2

The missing piece to Team Lerman has finally made an appearance on the court, and helped lead his team to their first W of the year, 94-35 against Team Mones. That missing piece is Jake Lerman, who scored 31 points, to lead the entire league in scoring this week. His “Splash Brother,” Luke Jacobson, was impressive again, scoring 31 of his own. They look to get another win next week against the tough #1 seed Team McNichols.

 

7. Team Schwartz (Schweitzer Title) – 1-2

Just like Team Lerman, Team Schwartz also picked up their first win of the season in a closely contested battle against Team Kaplan. The final score was 66-63. Derrick Davis scored 21 in his first game of the year. They look to turn this win into a winning streak next week against Team Dean. 

 

Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order)

Team Kaplan (Karyn Collection) – 1-2

Team Kaplan unfortunately could not bring the momentum from the win last week to this week, as they lost to Team Schwartz by 3 points. Adam Block scored 26 points and Daniel Turner had 19 of his own. They try to get back to the win column next week against Team Neuhausen in what should be an offensive battle. 

Team Mones (Schweitzer Title) – 1-2

Team Mones got smoked by Team Lerman this week, losing by 59 points. This was an uncharacteristic game for them, as they are usually tough competition. Brian Siegel was the only player that scored double digits for them. They want to get back on track next week against the impressive Team Rhum.

Team Zhang (SLA Insurance White) – 0-3

Team Zhang is winless through 3 games after losing to a tough Team Neuhausen. George Sanitize continues to be a bright spot for this team and lit up the score books again by scoring 24 points (which was half of his team’s total points). They go for their first win next week against Team Berkson.
