The 9th Blessan Samuel Classic is in the books! Special congratulations to the
now 3-time champion DCZ Finest, a team that did something no other team in the
tournament's history has been able to do, win 3 in a row! Truly epic performance
by Big Baby aka David Kadiri who was also the Tourney MVP this year.
GAME OF THE YEAR: There are several candidates this year, but I'm going to
go with Game 1 of the tournament a 27-25 OT win by Gburg to kick off the BSC on
a high note!

Final 2011 BSC Power Rankings
The first team in tournament history to win three straight titles, enough said.
If they can win four in a row, that feat may never be duplicated. Dynasty
Status. Strong performances from David Kadiri, Alvin Rathinam, Aba Udofa, Justin
Thomas, Marqus Young and Sam John. Game Highlight: Winning a 3rd
David Kadiri aka Big Baby
BSC MVP: David Kadiri aka Big Baby
Chicago cemented their contender status by again atleast reaching the final in
every year they've attended. No other team can boast the same stat. An injury to
Manny Hamgeri hindered their ability to win a fourth title, however rumor has it
another Hamgeri may return to the Chicago arsenal in 2012. Game
Highlight: Beating DC in the regular season.
Again, this team can never be underestimated. It seems like every year they are
in the final four. Great performances by Ricky Roy. Game Highlight:
Beating Chicago in the regular season.
All Star: Ricky Roy
What a RETURN! This team rocketed up the final rankings in their return after a
three year absence. Great performances by Shannon Jacob and Shane Thuraisingham.
Game Highlight: Both games against DC, they came very close to winning
both games. I was most impressed with this team.
All-Star: Shannon Jacob
Solid performances this year by Justin George and
Terrill George. This team has made the playoffs two
straight years since returning. With the return of James
George next year, I expect big things! Game
Highlight: 37-30 win over Gburg.
All-Star: Terrill George
This team managed to make the playoffs for the fifth
straight year, but they lack true cohesion and
explosiveness. They need to take the next step and win a
playoff game. Game Highlight: 27-25 OT win over
Texas to kick off the tournament.
Had a rough year, lost some close games, solid performances by George Jolly.
This team needs better cohesion. Game Highlight: 41-15 victory over
While having both an all star and three-point champion on this team, Irene
derailed this team toward the end of the day Saturday with most players having
to head back home. Still, they almost beat DC and would have done some damage
had they stayed. Game Highlight: 45-33 win over Yonkers.
All Star: Jordan Burnett
This team was in games but really missed out on not having team captains Jacob
George and Jensen Thomas present. Game Highlight: Gave Yonkers a run.
2012 BSC - First
