HURLEY'S COURT, JERSEY CITY, NJ -- On championship night, Antonio Burnett II and Victor Rosario scored 18 point and 19 points respectively, propelling the Scrappy SZN hoops team to an improbable 50-44 championship victory over the previously undefeated Hoop There it Is.
Congratulations to Scrappy SZN!
They finish the Winter Season with a 9-3 overall record. Rosario ended up the league leader in scoring and rebounds, while Burnett II was the overall assist leader.
After suffering a couple late-season losses (52-54 to the Wolfpack and 61-64 to the Alligators), they rebounded with a vengeance, defeating the Wolfpack 56-51 in Round 1 of the playoffs, and then put an exclamation point on the season with a hard-fought championship win.
For Hoop There it Is, their season came crashing down. Prior to the final game, they had rattled off 11 straight wins. They conclude their impressive season with an overall 11-1 record.
Congrats to both squads for their incredible performances throughout an awesome season of hoops.
The league office is happy to report that Scrappy SZN will be BACK to defend their Title. The question is - who's up for the challenge?
The Spring League starts in 2 weeks! We'll see you at the court....
