Official 2006 BSC Recap
Well the 4th annual BSC is in the books. The Chicago UntouchaBULLS played
with determination and resolve and have now matched Philly with 2 TITLES.
Overall I think the
tourney went well, we had our most exciting playoff game to date in Philly-DC.
If you weren't there....that's right....you missed it. Classic.

2006 BSC Final Power
Every year, the power
rankings change. Here you have it for 2006.
Chicago: If you don't know, now you know. This team has now
become the official team to beat. This appears to be a dynasty in the
Tourney MVP Joey Maldonado played lights out. Solid play
as always from Josue Flores and the Hamgeri bros. Biggest stat: Undefeated
in 2006. Will they make it 3 in a row?
This squad had its best playoff run in team history. I think a lot of
people wrote them off after scraping into the playoffs with a 2-3 record.
Still, they beat Toronto in the first round, and then played what I can only
describe as the best,
most intense game in the 4 year history of the BSC.
An overtime thriller, which they won 29-28, to propel them to their 2nd Final
appearance. They were a tired team by then, and only lost to the champs by
4 pts. 2007. Big things.
The Philly Ballaz continue to be a playoff team that plays hard till the last
second. Philly was the #2 seed in this year's tourney and a rematch of
last year's final seemed pretty likely.
Then the Philly-DC game happened.
The intensity level in this game seemed greater than in all the previous games
over the 2 days. Philly lost the game, but I see this as a true motivating
factor for them in 2007.
to Long Island. There were many teams that looked past this squad in '06,
and rightfully so after the past 2 years. But S.Island re-joined the
contenders list with a 5-2 overall record, defeating DC in the regular season,
and defeating Texas in the first round of the Playoffs.
Shout out to Toronto for coming out this year.
They brought a full squad and finished with a 2-4
record. Probably their biggest highlight was their
19-18 overtime win over Texas.
team made the playoffs in its first year.
Nothing to hang your head over. We look forward to
seeing you guys next year!
This team went through a lot to get to the 2006 BSC.
Many players from '05 couldn't make it, but they still
sucked it up and came out. Means a lot. Even
though this team finished with a 2-4 record, they made
it into the playoffs, and played their highlight game
against Strong Island in the playoffs. They
managed to take it into overtime before falling to the
Stunnaz, but they
should be commended
for doing as much as they did considering their roster.
Like Texas, Brooklyn was without 2 of their best players this year. But
they didn't make excuses, they still came out and fought hard. Their team
highlight was their
win over Gburg.
Look forward to seeing you guys next year!
Ay yi yi....well this team.....came out. No, but this is my team, I'll
ride this till the wheels fall off. They were pretty much handled by every
team they played. Shout out to team leader Arun for atleast giving the
team a boost and creating a scoring option, but without a big man, the team was
hopelessly out-rebounded spelling its doom. But it's all good.
GBURG IN 2007!!!
2007 BSC - First
look: The 2007 BSC is a very interesting prospect. Chicago
will be back, and possibly
with Big Dave. You know Philly and DC will be
in the mix. Texas, however will be in the championship game, in my
opinion. Think about it. Add Benson Samuel & Kevin/Jason Flores to a
roster that made the playoffs without them, AND gave S.Island a run for their
money. Should be interesting.
In conclusion ladies
and gents, it's our intention, God Willing, to continue these tournaments in the
years to come.
Thanks for supporting us in 2006.
