New player added to roster

Point guard, Michael Klein, has been added to the roster and made his debut last night at the McBurney YMCA. Klein is the former high school teammate of Eric Olsen at Marlboro (NJ) and has played in various intramural basketball leagues over the years. He was a member of the "3 Balls" intramural team at the University of South Carolina in 2009 when they won the 5th annual South Carolina Intramural Recreational Sports Association (SCIRSA) State Palmetto Classic Extramural Basketball Tournament, resulting in an automatic bid to the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Regional Basketball Tournament where they reached the semi-finals and earned the Sportsmanship Award.

Max's All Stars drop to 3-2 after a double-forfeit loss at the McBurney YMCA

Max's All Stars drop to 3-2 after a double-forfeit loss at the McBurney YMCA. The game against "Underrated" ended after just three quarters with the score at 38-33 in favor of the opposition. However, Max's All Stars made an 11-0 run to end the period after being down by 16. Trash talking led to fighting between both squads and the fourth quarter of the game was called off after #16 on "Underrated" threw a punch towards Eric Olsen. #16 was immediately ejected and his status for the remainder of the season is unclear. Both teams received a double-forfeit loss and sit at 3-2 with three games remaining.

Max's All Stars bounce back with 66-60 win over "Knights"

Max's All Stars improve to 3-1 at the McBurney YMCA after a shorthanded, sloppy win over "Knights" by a final score of 66-60. The team blew a 21-point second half lead, but held on for the victory. Missed FTs still plagued Max's All Stars and the team continued to struggle on defense at times, but Mike Viola and Eric Olsen showed signs of improvement. The roster is still a work in progress as players are shaking off rust and learning to trust each other more.

Max's All Stars suffer disappointing defeat in third game at McBurney YMCA

Max's All Stars drop to 2-1 at the McBurney YMCA after a sloppy loss to "Bouncers" by a final score of 47-45. Darryl Harvey, Jr. made his season debut, but the team played poorly on defense, missed a couple of crucial layups and struggled mightily at the free throw line. There were a few bad calls from the referees and the scorekeepers might have missed a couple of points on both sides after Max's All Stars went up 21-8 in the second quarter. #3 for the "Bouncers" had an excellent game, torching the defense all night.
Max's All Stars will be back at it next Tuesday against "Knights" at 8:30 PM.
