2019 BSC Power Rankings
Baltimore Bullets: After
losing the 2018 title game, Baltimore was
looking to make 2019 a coronation, best two out
of three. Baltimore won its second title in team
history with the #4 seed at the 2019 BSC. Led by
2019 MVP Teddy Owusu and All-Stars Jonathan
Fenwick and Brandon Farmer-Younger, this team
defeated Gburg, survived against Philly in OT,
and through sheer will and grit, found a way to
win its second title against Newark with only
seconds remaining in the game. An EPIC year for
this franchise. The question must now be posed,
are we looking at a DYNASTY? This is the team to
beat in 2020 regardless of their seeding.
The best year in franchise
history. That's quite a statement since Newarks
first year at the BSC was 2002. Newark followed
up three straight playoff appearances with their
highest seeding in team history, the #2 seed
with a 4-1 record. This team beat Strong Island
in the playoffs in an EPIC game, advancing to
their first title game. They were literally two
seconds away from a title of their own in the
championship against Baltimore. This team has
the respect and attention of every team in
attendance. Look for them to return in 2020 with
unfinished business on their minds!! Aby Jacob
was selected for the second straight year as an
What a year for Philly!
Freshly infused with young talent from Flight,
the Ballazz showed renewed energy and finished
the season undefeated as the #1 seed, beating
both participants in the 2018 title game. Kachi
Nzeh was selected as an all-star for the first
time and he seems to have a bright future ahead.
This team is highly motivated to add to their
three championships in 2019!
Strong Island Stunnaz:
The 2018 champions opened
up with a strong win against Baltimore. They
were the only team that had to play 6 regular
season games which may have affected their
stamina as the tournament progressed. Strong
Island finished as the #4 seed, defeated DC in
the playoffs and were eliminated in a close game
against Newark. Strong Island had Abel Abraham
selected as an all-star and Benson Alexander won
the three-point contest. Look for this team that
now has championship mettle to return to form in
Gburg is rising. For the second straight year,
they made the playoffs which is a first in
franchise history. They also had two players
selected as all-stars, Calvin Thomas & Joshua
Thomas. Gburg defeated DC for the first time in
team history. Look for this team to build off of
two straight solid years.
DCZ Finest: DC had their
worst year in franchise history in 2019. The
lack of players and depth ultimately cost them.
This team played with 3-4 players in many of the
games on Friday and still made them competitive.
A testament to their championship pedigree. Even
with the tough year, they still had two players
selected as all-stars, Jarvis Thomas & Kareem
Suma. Look for them to return to form in 2020.
Chicago gave several teams
a run for their money, but ultimately couldn't
close out 2019 with victories. Look for them to
return in 2020 with reinforcements!
2020 BSC First Look:
As the BSC moves to our 18th year, we
remain in our
most competitive ERA ever. Baltimore was tested
by multiple teams in route to their
championship. Five different teams have won the
title in the last 6 years. That
is amazing!! Look forward to seeing you there
and hopefully the return of Brooklyn, Texas and
