The 2007 BSC Champions:  Philly Ballazz

Monday, August 27, 2007 - Chung Lao     

Full 2007 BSC Tournament Recap

A.  Well the 5th annual BSC is in the books.  The Philly Ballazz captured their 3rd title, and first since 2004, thus cementing their status as the first BSC dynasty.  I also have to give much respect to Chicago.  They came undermanned, with a minimal bench, and almost pulled off the 3-peat.

Overall I think the tourney went fine.  There were injuries, heated competition, but in the end, the event succeeded.  As always, there is room for improvement, and we'll be on top of it.

Best Game of 2007.  Philly-Texas: Playoffs.

**Hundreds of pictures are coming in.  Should have them up later in the week.  Keep it locked.

Shout outs:  I want to take this time to shout out the following people.  Without their help, this event could not have happened.  Crystal George, Binu Varughese, Vinod Varghese, Danny Lopez, Julie Mathew, Soumini John, Stanley John, Sam John, Ricardo Avendano, Judah Asomugha, Josh Kurikeshu, Greg Smith, and to anyone I missed, many thanks for your support.

2007 BSC Tournament MVP: Binu Chacko

2007 BSC Joe Rosado 3-Point Champion: Tyson Titus

2007 BSC Fan Challenge Winner: Randy Singh

2007 BSC All-Stars: Justin Thomas, Tyson Titus, Binu Varughese, Jeremy Flores, Joe Hamgeri & Alvin Rathinam


Every year, the power rankings change.  Here you have them for 2007.

Philly:  Philly re-established themselves in 2007 as the team to beat.  They are the first dynasty in the history of this tournament.  Binu Chacko, the 2007 BSC MVP played lights out in the 2nd round matchup against Texas, making 2 clutch free throws, without which, they would have lost the game.  They got overall solid play from Blesson Chacko, Rocky Singh and Ricky Roy to help propel them to their 3rd title.


Chicago:  Once again, major props to Chicago.  They came undermanned, but seemed to will themselves back into the final.  The Hamgeri's continue to be the cause of great annoyance to the rest of the BSC with their excellent play.  :)  I think its a major accomplishment that this particular team made it as far as they did in 2007.


Texas:  Texas had outstanding play from Kevin Flores this year, and were within a hair of making the championship game.  Anybody that sleeps on this team in 2008 is making a major, major mistake.  This was a championship caliber team.


DC:  This team is always going to put up a fight.  DC took its best record since 2002 (4-1) into the playoffs and received a very high seed, the #2 spot..  Still, they weren't able to capitalize on that and finally make it happen.


Strong Island:  Strong Island started out 3-0, and made it to the playoffs for the 2nd year in a row.  The addition of Sijin helped their inside game, but it wasn't enough to overcome Chicago.


Gburg:  How about some R-E-S-P-E-C-T?  That's right, Gburg made the playoffs!  The addition of Iffy and Ikay made this team in every game it played (except for the Texas game).  They actually pushed Philly/DC and Strong Island to the brink.  Last year, this team was in the 8th place spot.  The only place to go is up!


Toronto:  Shout out to Toronto for making the long trip.  They had a lot of injuries this year, which affected their play.  It was a tough road for sure, but we look forward to seeing you guys in 2008.


Brooklyn:  This was not a banner year for Brooklyn's Finest.  Props for coming out and putting up a fight, but this team simply didn't have the bench to be effective.


2008 BSC - First look:  I look for Chicago and Texas (especially so) to return with some fire and attempt to beat Philly.  Most of all though, I look for the guys to come together and have a good time.

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 2007
