3 games left to decide a champ

Its 'Final Four Week' in the Patrick Ewing division. Three games left to decide the first Champion in the Lake Como League. 

The first game features the up-tempo offense of Splash Bandicoot (5-5 regular season) and the regular season division leaders, The View (9-1). 

The View defeated Splash both times they two met this season.  In the first game Doug Boor (13/12) had a double double for the SB, but the Views dynamic duo of Mel Pitts (20/7) and Ky Meredith (19/6) proved to be too much to handle. 

Ty Roshala (19/5) had himself a nice game the second time they squared off but again, Mel Pitts (21 points) led the View to the comfortable win. 

Splash Bandicoot know they have their hands full and are going to have to play near perfect ball if they want to pull the upset. 

The late game features two teams who were about as evenly matched as you can get this season. Back in February, the SuperSonics (7-3) lost to the Tigers (6-4) by 3 points and then 4 weeks later beat Tigers by 4 points. 

The Sonics’ Alex Levchenko (21 ppg) will look to keep pace with the Tigers two headed scoring machine of Jermaine Jackson (23.6 ppg) and Andrey Bonelli (24 ppg). 

It should be a pair of fast paced, exciting games Sunday night as we come one week closer to crowning a champion at the Shore. Good Luck to all teams.
