Buffalo, NY- Saturday’s games featured what were perhaps the best slate of games of the season. In Game 1, R.I.P. Ent cruised past We All We Got to take sole possession of first in the East. R.I.P. Ent is wrapping up what is perhaps their best regular season performance in franchise history and appears to be the most complete team in the league at this point. M.V.P. Network Consulting gave up a 16 point lead to a feisty United Hoops squad, which is quickly becoming a fan favorite with their fast-paced hard working brand of basketball. Michael Marsh led Ball Never Lies over Team First in Game 3 to stay a half game ahead of United Hoops for the final playoff spot in the East with one game remaining.

White Men Can’t Jump suffered a heart-breaking loss against Pimpin’ Ain’t East in the first game of Western Conference action of the day. Frank Musso scored a game high 24 points to stay in the hunt for the scoring title, but it wasn’t enough to carry WMCJ to victory.
