Week 5 Preview

What a wild weekend we just had, as Week 4 of the 2019 season included early gym lockdowns, overtime thrillers, multiple buzzer beaters, and a historical blowout that wound up actually being fun thanks to the efforts of our announcer George and Legacy’s once-in-a-lifetime shooting. Seriously, if a whole team ever gets that hot again all at once, building maintenance may have to turn on the sprinklers to put out the blaze.

With all that happening, it’s hard to it could get any better, but there are still seven weeks to go. And the domestic pros haven’t even been cleared to play yet! With that said, there are still plenty of reasons to get to the gym early and get real comfortable this weekend because some of these matchups look to be absolute doozies.

On Friday, not only will Legacy get to test their hot streak against a gritty Panthers team itching for revenge after barely losing to Public Enemy last Saturday, but the exciting young preps of All In and Tuff Crowd (featuring Shareef O’Neal) will clash to see if the next generation can upset their slightly older peers. CABC is hard to miss, too, and Pandas will be hungry to snatch their first win of the season off their undefeated opponents.

Saturday, we’re looking at wall-to-wall action as Hometown Favorites with Cassius Stanley collides with the underrated but not-to-be-overlooked Black Pearl Elite, who very nearly upset MHP on Sunday with a last-second, full-court shot that just barely missed the buzzer.

Later, Khalil Ahmad, Bryce Peters, and their slumping Prodigy squad will try to right the ship against the Nationwide Blue Devils, who added a ton of exciting players from other teams and look to return at full strength. 

Finally, Sunday’s slate of games will see the resurgent Problems, with their full complement of players, take on the reloaded Blazers, who finally have their entire team ready to play.

Undefeated champions Redemption will bump up against CABC, who may very well still be undefeated themselves, meaning one team’s perfect record so far may be at risk. Both teams will fight tooth-and-nail to keep a goose egg in the loss column, so that is definitely one to watch.
