Max's All Stars win ABC Hoops Junior Basketball League first round playoff game vs Flightz
Yesterday, Max's All Stars won their ABC Hoops Junior Basketball League first round playoff game vs Flightz by a final score of 35-34. It was a back and forth, seesaw battle between two evenly matched teams. Both squads struggled offensively throughout the contest, but late in the first half Max's All Stars heated up from behind the arc - Luke Duggan, Malek Graham, Ricardo Velez and Savdeep Gill all hit crucial threes. Late in the game, Gill lost his cool and was assessed a technical foul giving the Flightz momentum. Down three in the final minute, Gill atoned for his mistake by tying the game with a clutch three-pointer. Max's All Stars got the ball back in the final seconds and Keone Billey was fouled on a shot attempt as the buzzer sounded to end the game. Billey went to the line and calmly sank the winning free throw. Malek Graham was named player of the game for his efforts. Darryl Ottley, Keshaun Cameron, Rameik Golden, Sandeep Singh, Sean Eustace, Stewart Talleyrand and Travis Sukdevsingh also contributed to the first youth basketball playoff win in Max's All Stars history. This team showed a lot of heart - battling back from a late deficit and overcoming mistakes to earn victory.
