Max's All Stars lost their Spring 2013 Harlem4Life season opener against the defending champions, Harlem Ballers, by a final score of 55-53. Aaron "Problem" Williams, Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias, Dave Seagers, Kevin Briggs, Kiwan Smith, Marvin Billups Jr and Patrick James all played hard throughout the game, maintaining a five-point lead in the final minute. However, horrible officiating all game long made it hard for Max's All Stars to finish things off and secure the W. Bad calls, missed calls, just awful refereeing contributed to the loss. It's a tough way to start the season, but a valuable learning experience moving forward. Max's All Stars will look to turn the page with two games next week on Wednesday, May 1st and Friday, May 3rd.
