  Final 2017 BSC Power Rankings


Baltimore Bullets: Baltimore showed tremendous heart and removed any doubt of always being a "contender" by finally securing the hardware. Led by MVP Teddy Owusu and an breakout all star performance by Chris Adams Jr, any and all doubts have been removed. This team looks to be contenders for years to come.


DCZ Finest: A champion's heart was almost enough. Led by the all star performances of David Kadiri and Jarvis Thomas, DC came extremely close to achieving Jordan status. But that will have to wait till next year, when they attempt to secure a BSC record 6th championship.


Newark: The surprise team of the 2017 BSC! To put this in perspective, prior to this year, Newark's highest win total in a single year was one. In 2017, they won four games, including their first playoff win in team history against the defending champs, Brooklyn. Quite simply an epic turnaround. Led by team captain Jacinth Panicker and all star performances by Joby Jacob and Sam Kurian, a new era has begun for the Newark squad. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds!


Philly Ballazz: The veteran team that never seems to go away. Philly entered Saturday of the BSC without their best player, Vinil Abraham. They still managed to make the playoffs as the sixth seed and win a playoff game after their all star Ricky Roy was out for most of the second half of that playoff game. They may be aging, but never count out the heart of a championship team.


Strong Island Stunnaz: Strong Island posted their highest win total at the BSC since 2006. Led by an all star performance from Abel Abraham, the veteran presence of Josue Flores and the sharp shooting of Bensen and Daniel Oomman. The injury to Joseph Joshua was difficultto overcome, but look for Strong Island to bounce back in a big way in 2018. 


Brooklyn: The defending champions gave it their all, but were unable to repeat as champions without their all stars, Josh and Jordan Burnette. Still, there is great hope for the future. Jabar Williams was voted an all star, and Kareem Suma established himself as a rising star in the BSC with his first all star selection. Brooklyn's future is looking bright for years to come.


Lanham Legends: Lanham did not win any games at the 2017 BSC, but they were in all of them. Just ask the teams they played. They showed tremendous heart and will look to take the next step next year!


Philadelphia Flight: A valiant effort by this year's brand new team produced no wins, but it was a great learning experience for this team. There is definitely young talent on this squad, that will improve over time, and eventually they will take their rightful place amongst the playoff teams of the BSC and beyond!

2018 BSC First Look: As the BSC moves to year 16, and with four different champions in the last four years, it truly is anyone's trophy to raise! Will Baltimore be able to start a dynasty? Will a sleeper team step up and surprise us all? Will the rumors of the return of the Chicago UntouchaBULLS come true? Look forward to seeing you there!!
