Special thanks to all
of the team captains of the BSC. Each captain
was given an award in appreciation of the effort
they put in every year!
The following recap was written by Justin

time champs. There’s not much to say about this
team other than they are the most dominant team
in BSC history. Not having much of a bench the
second day may have played a role in their
fatigue but they had an unstoppable weapon in
David Kadiri. Find a way to stop Big Baby, then
you have your answer in stopping them from
getting their sixth next year. Oh by the way, he
had the highest scoring output in the tourney
this year (13ppg). No big deal.
team definitely improved from last year
especially with the solid play of their core 3
starters. Their inside game improved in defense
and rebounding. Jabar stepped up in the finals
and single-handedly carried Brooklyn, giving
them a chance to win the game. If they can
learn to gel together as a team, they are right
there to win the chip again!
Just to give some comparison from last year,
they were in sixth place going into the
playoffs. Adding Jonathan Fenwick to the squad
really changed the way they played and Teddy’s
play also improved with him on the court earning
him a first team all-star spot. They gave DC
their first regular season loss in a while and
entertained the spectators with a historical
triple overtime win against Philly. Gburg always
manages to surprise teams so don’t count them
out next year.
worth mentioning that Gburg had not won a
playoff game in its history...till 2014.
by their all-star, Drew, and leading rebounder
of the tourney (6 rpg), Shane, this team had
another solid year. The addition of the Montreal
guys really helped them as well, but they have
to find a way to get out of the semis to truly
be contenders. After tasting the finals in 2012,
they have not been able to make it to the finals
since then. If they can add a few more solid
pieces and get it together, there is no reason
why they cannot make finals every year and
eventually win this tournament.
making finals next year to coming into the
playoffs with a losing record this year, there
was a notable difference in how they played.
Their teamwork and ball IQ remained consistent,
but maybe it’s those years of wear and tear that
are finally catching up to them. Vinil & Ricky
stepped up this year which helped them make the
second team all-star team. Their days are fast
approaching, but they are still in that group of
teams that still win it.
their second year, the Stunnaz continue to turn
heads and get people talking. Benson’s
leadership and play on the court really
facilitated in this team’s progression as a
strong squad. The loss of Abel and other key
contributors hurt them immensely especially
going into the playoffs. Overall, they have
gotten better but still need to develop those
other areas to make some noise.
word: awesome. This team gradually increases
their level of play every year. From not winning
any games in 2012, to winning their first in
2013, to winning two games in 2014. If the trend
continues, they can be a positive team in 2015!
Calvin Thomas, everyone. Remember that name. The
kid that practiced in his driveway every day
hoping to become a great player achieved his
dream by getting first team all-star. He had the
second highest scoring output (11.2 ppg) after
none other than Kadiri. Yeah, take a moment to
let that sink in. Truly, one the greatest
stories in this tournament’s history. Just goes
to show you how the level of competition is
improving even with younger and younger players.
a one-year absence, this six-man team gave every
team a run for their money and a win over
Yonkers The one-two punch of Jacinth and Aby led
the team and game those two well-deserving
second team all-star spots. They need to add
more to their bench so their starters can get
some rest time. Either way, good job, fellas!
After a two year absence, Yonkers returned led
by team captains James & Justin George. 2014 was
a tough year for them however their team had a
lot of young players. Look for improvement in
2015 as the new players have become acclimated
to what the BSC is all about.
2015 BSC First Look:
DC is the team to beat, everyone knows that.
Having said that, Gburg, Toronto & Brooklyn
pushed them to the brink. Will one of those
teams claim the prize in 2015. Will another team
emerge? Texas? Chicago? Look forward to seeing
you next year!
