2017 Chicago Summer THURSDAY Hoops – Week 4 (July 6)

Updated: July 13, 2017

I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend, ate a ton of good food and watched some quality fireworks. Speaking of fireworks, Team Lerman created some fireworks by dethroning the #1 Team McNichols. This is a tight race in the standings, and I expect it to get even tougher as the season goes along. Let’s see how teams faired in Week 4…

Power Rankings

1. Team Rhum (Rockin’ Refuel) – 3-1

After losing a heartbreaker to the previously #1 seeded Team McNichols, Team Rhum came back with an impressive win in Week 4, beating Team Mones by the score of 66-44. Marin Kukoc lead the scoring with 28, and Adam Rhum added 15 of his own. This win moved them to 3-1 and bumped them into a tie in 1st place in the standings. They look to separate themselves from the field next week against the solid Team Berkson.


2. Team McNichols (The Bucket List)

Even though they lost their first game of the year, Team McNichols is only going to drop one spot in the power rankings. Dante Logan had 22 points, but it wasn’t enough. They lost by only 6 points to Team Lerman. They look to get right back on track next week against Team Schwartz.


3. Team Neuhausen (Live Clean CHI) – 3-1

Offensive powerhouse Team Neuhausen won their second game in a row this week, beating Team Kaplan 81-59. Leading scorer Calvin Kang had 31 points, and Connor Grotton added 22. They are now tied for first in the standings, and look to turn their winning streak into 3 games next week against Team Mones.


4. Team Berkson (StudentCity) – 3-1

Team Berkson got right back on track after suffering their first loss of the season last week. They beat Team Zhang 77-46, led by 18 points from Matt Kaplan. They continued to spread the ball around well and the scoring was evenly distributed once again. This is a sign of long-term success. Up next for them is the dangerous Team Rhum.


5. Team Dean (Sunset Foods) 2-2

Team Dean lost their second game of the season this week to Team Schwartz, which is why they dropped a few spots in the Power Rankings. Courtney Griffin had 25 and Lawson Thalmaan had 20, but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated by 9 points. They look to jump right back into the winning side of things next week against Team Kaplan.


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

Team Lerman dethroned the #1 seed Team McNichols, handing them their first loss of this young season by the score of 71-65. “Splash Bro’s” Luke Jacobson and Jake Lerman scored 27 and 20 points, respectively. Watch out for this team going forward. Up next for them is the winless Team Zhang.


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

Team Schwartz found the win column for the first time in Week 3, and loved the feeling of victory, so they did their best to stay there and make the winning column familiar territory. They beat Team Dean in Week 4 by the score of 78-69, led by Davis who had 22 and Austin Brown who dropped 19. They aim to keep jumping up the standings next week against the powerful Team McNichols.


Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order)

Team Kaplan (Karyn Collection) – 1-3

Team Kaplan dropped their second game in a row after losing to Team Neuhausen this week by the score of 81-59. Adam Block led the scoring with 20 points. Up next for them is a battle with Team Dean. 

Team Mones (Schweitzer Title) – 1-3

After winning their first game of the season in Week 1, Team Mones has yet to find the win column again, losing three in a row. This week, they fell to Team Rhum by 22 points. Brian Siegel and Matt Siegel had 17 and 15 points, respectively. Next week they play Team Neuhausen. 

Team Zhang (SLA Insurance White) – 0-4

Team Zhang is now winless through 4 games after losing to Team Berkson by 31 points this week. Michael Palacios was their leading scorer with 19 points. They go for their first win next week against Team Lerman.
