In Week 6, R.I.P. Ent took down undefeated Western Conference powerhouse Malone’s in a 77-71 point victory led by Mitchell Reese (22 pts, 6 rebs) and Darcell Thomas (19 pts), extending their winning streak to three games. In the 5pm game the Flint Tropics took on undefeated KW Appliance in a wild west style shoot out. The two teams combined for a BSWA record 23 three point shots made. KW Appliance controlled the game throughout until Phil Puccia (34 pts, 9 asts, 2 rebs) erupted late in the second half with a multitude of long range shots over the course of three minutes. The Flint Tropics took the lead with only a few minutes left and held on for a 85-84 point victory sending KW Appliance to their first loss of the season. In the 9pm game, Hutch’s took on the last remaining undefeated team in Kronies Jamfest, That’s How We Do Work. That’s How We Do Work was missing the leadership of team captain Reuben Owens and it showed early on as Hutch’s jumped out to a 13 point lead behind the inspiring play of Jon McKissick and their leading scorer Shawn Dotzler. But That’s How We Do Work fought back late and sealed the game behind seven late free throws by Romair Parrett and by the end of the night were the last undefeated team left standing in Kronies Jamfest.
