Win or go Home!

Design Playoffs

It’s playoff time and most of the town has basketball fever. In order to capitalize on the craze, the Sunnyside Diner has temporarily added several tv screens to attract customers who would otherwise be watching the games somewhere else. Whether you are a casual viewer or a hardcore fan, you will have no trouble finding a spot to experience the games. Good luck to all the teams playing.

Inside tip: It quickly becomes very clear who is a basketball fan and who isn’t.

Nothing but Net!

Design Basketball

Falls is near but summer in Griddle Creek is not over yet. The weather is still nice enough to shoot some hoops outside. If you’re in town today get out and enjoy it.

What to do: If you are like Hugo, you go out and try to capture some video footage to post to your social media page.

Where to do it: Hugo is down at Early Bird Park trying to convince people he is the third Splash Brother. Right now, he looks more like a distant cousin.

Inside tip: If Hugo asks you to film one of his trick shots, make sure you have fully charged phone and a lot of patience.

Bring your “A” Game!

Design Bracketology

The Intramural 3-on-3 basketball tournament is underway at the Griddle Creek Gymnasium. The brackets have been drawn and all the first-round games have been played. If you missed any of the game action, here is the recap of the results:

Instant Domination vs Inferno of Vengeance
Inferno of Vengeance’s championship hopes went up in flames as they were easily defeated by Instant Domination. Brandi set a fast pace early for Instant Domination and Inferno of Vengeance could not catch their breath. Sean took advantage of a worn-down Inferno of Vengeance defense by making well over 60% of his shots. Hugo chipped in 8 rebounds in a winning effort while still having time to order a victory pizza.

Reflex Victory vs Triple Action
Reflex Victory played a great first half but ultimately fell victim to the three-point prowess of Triple Action in the second half. Team Reflex Victory simply did not have enough long-range shooters to keep pace with Triple Action. Fluffy dominated on the boards for Triple Action with 15 rebounds while DeCaffe went 6 of 9 from the three-point line to lead all scorers with 25 points.

Triple Jeopardy vs Police Academy
The Triple Jeopardy versus Police Academy game came down to the wire with Triple Jeopardy losing on a last-second shot. The game really could have gone to either team. Police Academy had a balanced offensive attack with Officer Long and Officer Cakeman each scoring 18 points. They needed every last one of those points to win.

Sunnyside Ballers vs Dukes of Danger
Sunnyside Ballers advances past Dukes of Danger in a game that ceased to be competitive once Duke of Danger’s best player pulled a hamstring and was forced to watch a large portion of the game from the bench. Christy led the way for Sunnyside Ballers with 18 points and 10 assists while Sonny led all players in personal fouls with 6. Sonny swears that he did not foul anybody the whole game. However, the bruises on the opponent say different.

Time out!

Design Tournament time

It has been a fun season and now the time everybody at the Griddle Creek Gymnasium has been waiting for is almost here. Well not quite everybody, really just the ones that play in the 3-on-3 Intramural Basketball League.

What to do: There is nothing more you can do at this point. It’s the last game of the season before the playoffs begin.

Where to do it: All of the tournament games take place at the Griddle Creek Gymnasium. Check the board to find out which team you’re playing against.

Insider tip: Get some rest, eat your vitamins, and say your prayers because winning this tournament won’t be easy. Instant Domination is once again favored to win it all. Will any team be able to beat them? Hugo is so confident he is not even taking this last game seriously.
