Buffalo, NY- Kronies Jamfest 2011 came to a close not with a whimper, but with a bang as fifth seed KW Appliances finished off their remarkable playoff run with a championship victory over That’s How We Do Work to capture the Eastern Conference title. KW Appliances were led by Anthony Irwin who led KW Appliances with 22 points and was named the Kronies Jamfest Finals MVP. It was a close game throughout, but it seemed that for every run that THWDW went on, KW Appliances had an answer. Final score: 61-57.
In the Western Conference, Fusion took on the Seven-One-Sixers for the Western Conference title. Fusion was led by the inspirational return of team captain Louis Carey, who was sidelined with a lower back injury for most of the season. Fusion took control early and maintained a good lead throughout, finishing off the Seven-One-Sixers 58-45. It was a disappointing end to a great season from captain Nate Quain and the Seven-One-Sixers, who got hot late and cruised through the playoffs only to end up just short of a title. Jordan Vaccaro was named the Kronies Jamfest Finals MVP in the Western Conference, leading Fusion with 17 points, including a number of key baskets down the stretch.
