Max's All Stars won the Fall Hoops Showdown 2013 Championship yesterday with 3 dominating victories at Hooperstown in Mount Vernon. The first one came against the defending champions, Blue Team, by a final score of 66-32. Then, after a long 2.5+ hour break, the team was in the semifinals against the Red Team - winning 53-40 to clinch a spot in the championship game against the Black Team. After a 3-point shooting contest, the championship game finally took place and Max's All Stars went on to defeat the Black Team by a final score of 47-26 to take home the title and $1,500 cash prize! Angel Gonzalez, Branden Gibson, Corey Orgias, Doug Herring (who was named Most Valuable Player), Kevin Pegram, Patrick James, Rob Thomas and Shaun Diaz worked together and played hard to finish the day 3-0. Also, Coach Carl Gibson was instrumental being vocal with the players and referees. It was a total team effort and a great day for Max's All Stars!
