The stage is set for Championship Weekend as Team First and the VeryAggressiveGuys advance in the West and Court Justice and R.I.P. Ent advance in the East.
Buffalo, NY- Saturday just may have been the best weekend of Kronies Jamfest yet. Two white knuckle 20 minute play-in games, a triple overtime thriller, and the top two seeds knocked off in the East. In the first play-in game the Billies cruised by Swagged Out, despite a strong finish to the season by Will Castro who led all scorers with 14 points. In the following game number two seed Hit It & Quit It fell to the VeryAggressiveGuys in triple overtime behind a strong game by Mike Bennett, who scored 24 points in the game. After an hour break the Billies were back in action against the number one seeded Team First. After jumping out to a ten point lead, the Billies got cold, allowing Team First to go on a big second half run and cruise into the finals next week against the VeryAggressiveGuys.
In the 5pm slot R.I.P. Ent faced off against AXA in a twenty minute play-in game, overcoming a nine point deficit to advance to play Swoopin’ In On Ya Girl in the 6:30 game. In the 5:30 game Sponge Bob Square Pants played another BSWA classic against Court Justice. After leading most of the game behind the dominant inside game of Jon Burgio (33 points), Court Justice fought back into the game with an intense full court press, cutting the lead down and eventually pulling off the one-point win to advance to the finals. Next up was the Eastern Conference scoring champion John Papincak, who led number one seed Swoopin’ In On Ya Girl against R.I.P. Ent. In another nail-biter R.I.P. Ent squeaked out a one point victory to advance to the championship next week against Court Justice.
Consolation Bracket Madness
In the East, DJ Dovey Ent beat the Hoosiers in another one point game, but in a strange turn of events the Queen City Stampede delivered the BSWA and Kronies Jamfest their first ever no-show/forfeit. In their place the Hoosiers played a doubleheader against the Pick N’ Tootsie Rolls and narrowly pulled out a three point victory to advance to the Consolation Bowl in a rematch against DJ Dovey Ent.
In the Western Conference Healthy Buffalo cruised by the Wolfpack to advance to the Consolation Bowl against Team Rocket, who knocked off hoops unlimited in another close 62-59 point game.
The conclusion of Kronies Jamfest 3 unfolds this Satuday. Will R.I.P. Ent repeat in the East? Can the VeryAggressiveGuys upset number one seed Team First? Find out this Saturday!
