Max's All Stars earned their fifth straight win with a hard fought effort against the previously undefeated Team #4 Ray S - Red by a final score of 74-62. Neither team was at full strength, but Team #4 had a five-point halftime lead. Despite looking flat at times, Max's All Stars overcame some poor officiating and their first halftime deficit of the season. Dave Seagers played the whole game and hit a number of clutch buckets (scoring 31 points), but the exclamation point came with 6+ minutes remaining when Patrick James and Marvin Billups Jr (14 points) were subbed in. Up by 7, James won a jumpball and Billups hit a huge 3 that essentially put the game away. Angel Gonzalez (playing on a bad ankle), Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias, Kevin Major and Ronnie Worthen Jr all made valuable contributions as well. It was a tough, sometimes sloppy game, but Max's All Stars got the all important win and now sit alone atop the standings.

Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias, Dave Seagers (22 points), Kevin Major, Marvin Billups Jr (22 points), Patrick James and Ronnie Worthen Jr all played, making significant contributions to the win. There were some sloppy moments and inconsistent officiating, but Max's All Stars overcame it and improved to 4-0 this season.

Max's All Stars improved to 3-0 with an 84-69 win against Team #5 Rob C - Royal Blue. It was a solid all-around team effort. Max's All Stars led the whole game, going up by 20 midway through the second half. The team size and depth advantage were the key to victory as all seven players (Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias - 20 points, Dave Seagers - 15 points, Kevin Major, Marvin Billups Jr, Patrick James and Ronnie Worthen Jr - 17 points) made major contributions against an established 92Y A-Division opponent.
