JERSEY CITY, NJ -- On championship night, the top 2 teams this season went head to head for the trophy and bragging rights.
Hot Boys and nWo met for the first time in the championship game, and boy did they put on a show. The game was highly competitive start to finish, energetic and very fast paced. In the first half, both teams played quality defense and each had a hot offensive start. Adding to that were multiple lead changes. Hot Boys set a lot of screens to get wide open 3’s, but just couldn’t knock them down. nWo went on a 9-1 run to end the half to go up by 10, 32-22 and would hold the lead the rest of the game. At this point Ronald Prophete led Hot Boys with 8 points and for nWo Farod Robinson was the catalyst with 10 points.
The second half began with a hostile altercation between Will Kales and Aaron Gadsden who would each receive double technical and not return. Up to that point, each player had 6 points and their teams would have to continue without their best playmakers. Hot Boys turned it up right away with a 10-2 run to cut the lead to 8, but we all know nWo is great at fixing their mistakes and they were right back on top by 13 points.
Both teams battled to the end, but nWo was able to put the fire out on Hot Boys, taking the trophy home on a 66-58 win. The Hot Boys impressive season was crushed (8-2). Ronald Prophete finished with 14 points, 8 rebounds and 1 steals and Antonio Burnett II added 13 points (all in 2nd half), 2 assists, 5 rebounds and 1 block. nWo’s Farod Robinson led the team to this win with 19 points, 2 assists, 1 steal and 3 rebounds with Matik Jones right behind with 16 points, 4 assists, 3 steals, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. Matik Jones could arguably be the team’s MVP this season.
nWo’s season was overall a very memorable one. They had every team’s number from the first game of the season, letting everyone know they were a force to be reckoned with. Definitely not a team you want to bet against and they proved that by becoming the new champs. This incredible season was led by Matik Jones who averaged 16.4 PPG and a total of 131 points. He also led the team in rebounds with 8.5 per game, steals and blocks also had his name on it. Louis Williams. Jr was next in line with 13.5 PPG and 108 points on the season. Farod Robinson averaged 6.8 RBP and Will Kales led the team with 40 assists. No other player came close to the number. nWo chemistry and talent won them a championship as they took the league by storm. Watch out for the new Champs!!!
