BS&B upset a short-handed Cereal Killers team last week to improve to 4-0 on the season. This game will prove if that victory was a fluke or not. After an ejection, Sportslook was down to four men in their heartbreaking loss to Goon Squad last week, their first of the season.

Players to watch: Andrew Sampietro (BS&B), Bryan Acevedo (Sportslook)

  • Sampietro: 12.3 PPG, 4.0 RPG
  • Acevedo: season-low 7 points in week 4

Potential Breakout Players: John Brolet (BS&B), Scotty Crochard (Sportslook)

  • Brolet: 8.8 PPG, 7.3 RPG
  • Crochard: 16.0 PPG

The Kekambas beat Run TMC handily last week, 71-54, but they run into one of their biggest tests in week five. The Temptations coasted to an easy victory over the Air Ballers, despite the absence of point guard Nick Santorelli.  With him back, they look to continue their winning ways against the Kekambas.

Players to watch: Chris Aaron (Kekambas), Carmine Santorelli (Temptations)

  • Aaron: 34 points last week vs Run TMC
  • Santorelli: 29.0 PPG (2nd in league)

Potential Breakout Players: Aaron McAlpine (Kekambas) , Erik Silva (Temptations)

  • McAlpine: 14.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG
  • Silva: 23.3 PPG on 80.4 percent shooting from field

No Limit is quickly ascending toward the top of the league, after they thrashed the Titans last week, 68-45. The three-headed monster of Tarell Vargas, John Rullan, and Howie Miller determine this team’s destiny. They have made nine more threes any other team. The preseason favorite of the rookie teams was the Cereal Killers, but they are off to a rocky start, now having dropped their last two games including last week’s overtime thriller to BS&B.

Players to watch: Howie Miller (No Limit), Will Hudson (Cereal Killers)

  • Rullan:  24 points, including 6-of-7 from behind the arc in week 4
  • Hudson: 19 points, 11 rebounds in week 4

Potential Breakout Players: Tarell Vargas (No Limit), Michael Masciola (Cereal Killers)

  • Vargas: 18.5 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 4.3 APG
  • Masciola: 20 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks in week 4

9PM: TITANS (0-4) vs GOON SQUAD (3-1)

The Titans showed promise with the first joint start of the Echols’ brothers – they are better than their record indicates. Goon Squad is a tenacious defensive team lead by Matt Marconi, who has been steadily ascending the power rankings.

Players to watch: Steven Echols (Titans), Matt Marconi (Goon Squad)

  • S. Echols: 14.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 4.3 APG
  • Marconi: 17 points, 9 rebounds in week 4

Potential Breakout Players: James Echols (Titans), Brandon Massaro (Goon Squad)

  • J. Echols: 11 points, 3 rebounds in week 4
  • Massaro:  11.3 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 3.5 APG

Will: Goon Squad

10PM: RUN TMC (0-4) vs ONE TIME (0-4)

One of these teams will capture their first win of the season. Run TMC’s preseason rankings did not indicate they would struggle to find their first victory, but here we are in week 5 and they are still winless. One Time is still searching for the replacement of Eric Rankin in the scoring department, and will need someone else to step up to earn their first victory.

Players to watch:  Nic Civale (Run TMC), Mike Cody (One Time)

  • Civale: 18 points in the one game he played in
  • Cody:  16.0 PPG, 7.7 RPG

Potential Breakout Players: Joey Zocco (Run TMC), Steve Koripsky (One Time) 

  • Zocco: 5.8 PPG, 5-for-17 from three
  • Koripsky:  9.8 PPG on 41.7 percent shooting

The Brotherhood were in full-gear last week as Player of the Week Russ Payton set a Legacy Leagues record with 60 points on 28-0f-33 shooting from the field. With the expected return of last year’s MVP Michael Davis, the only question in this matchup is the final margin of victory. Jaylon Smalls continues to be the lone bright spot for the Air Ballers, as they look to capture their elusive first victory.

Players to watch: Jaylon Smalls (Air Ballers), Russ Payton (The Brotherhood)

  • Smalls: 19.3 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 5.8 APG
  • Payton: 60 points on 28-for-33 shooting in week 4

Potential Breakout Players: Jonathan Cordero (Air Ballers), Michael Davis (The Brotherhood)

  • Cordero: 10.0 ppg, 8-for-40 from three
  • Davis: Reigning regular season and Finals MVP (expected first game back this season)
