Max's All Stars improve to 2-0

Max's All Stars improved to 2-0 with a forfeit win over Team #3 Brandon A - Purple last night. Instead of a Fall 2011 92Y Adult Basketball League A-Division Championship Game rematch, Max's All Stars faced a team of last minute replacement players and won by a final score of 80-63. Kevin Young made a guest appearance, replacing Dave Seagers in the lineup. Angel Gonzalez and Kevin Major made their Spring 2012 debut and were joined by Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias, Marvin Billups Jr (who threw down quite a few impressive dunks), Mike Viola and Patrick James. It was a sloppy win against a team no one expected to face, but an important W and a fun evening nonetheless.

Max's All Stars win Spring 2012 92Y season opener

Last night, Max's All Stars won their Spring 2012 92Y Adult Basketball League A-Division season opener by a final score of 78-53 against Team #6 - Jon L. It was total domination from start to finish. Michael Orock and Dave Seagers (16 points) made their debut with the team memorable as both guys turned in very impressive performances. They were joined by six returning members - Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias (30 points), Marvin Billups Jr, Mike Viola, Patrick James and Ronnie Worthen Jr - all of whom made major contributions as well. Max's All Stars were firing on all cylinders, it was a complete team effort from top to bottom.

Max's All Stars add two new players leading up to Spring 2012 season

Max's All Stars fell just short of winning a championship in Fall 2011, but are gearing up for big things in Spring 2012. The team will be adding two new players to the roster.

First off, Michael Orock from Wagner College. The 6'7"/233 lbs big man has a solid Division I background, having played 110 games, staring 50 with career averages of 4.3 PPG, 3.1 RPG and 0.6 BPG. Orock's best statistical season came as a senior in 2009-2010 when he averaged 10.5 PPG, 6.23 RPG and 1.06 BPG. He is big, strong and expected to provide a dominating presence down low.

Also joining the roster will be former Dowling College standout, David Seagers (otherwise known as "Super Dave"). Seagers briefly played with Angel Gonzalez at Dowling and is familiar with everyone on the roster. He has big game experience in college and high-level leagues such as Nike Pro City and Dyckman. "Super Dave" usually plays for the famed Bodysnatchers Basketball Team, but will be joining Max's All Stars for the time being. Seagers averaged 17.0 PPG, 5.54 RPG and 2.98 APG in 109 career games at Dowling and should provide stability and explosiveness to Max's All Stars.
