This week’s previews are presented by: the Star Factory



This matchup projects to be a defensive battle. While the Kekambas have their struggles offensively, they are the league’s second-best rebounding team. Look for this game to be won on the boards as Sportslook struggles to rebound as a team. This is a great match up for the Kekambas to take the next step in the league.

Players to watch: Bryan Acevedo (Sportslook), Chris Aaron (Kekambas)

  • Aaron: 16 points, four rebounds, four assists and four blocks in week 5
  •  Acevedo: 19 points, four rebounds in week 5

Potential Breakout Players: Davin Sirpenski (Kekambas), Eric Green (Sportslook)

  •  Sirpenski: six points, four rebounds in week 5
  •  Green: 10 points, one steal in season debut week 5

Since joining the Cereal Killers, Tyrhon Coward hasn’t enjoyed the same success as he did last season with the Brotherhood. Make no doubt about it: this will be a high stakes game with a lot of behind the scenes drama involved. Look for Mike Davis to really unleash the beast in his first real test since debuting this season in week 5.

Players to watch: Adam Samuel (Cereal Killers), Mike Davis (The Brotherhood)

  • Samuel: 45 points, eight rebounds in week 5
  • Davis: 17 points, 14 assists in week 5

Potential Breakout Players: Michael Masciola (Cereal Killers), Tim Adanti (The Brotherhood)

  • Masciola: 14.2 PPG, 7.0 RPG
  • Adanti: 30 points, 7 rebounds in week 5

9PM: RUN TMC (1-4) vs BLOOD, SWEAT & BEERS (4-1)

Run TMC collected their first win of the season last week over One Time, while BS&B were handed their first loss from Sportslook. Run TMC will look to remain hot and try to knock of BS&B to earn their second straight win. BS&B has proven their grit time and again this season, and have proven they can play with the best. Despite a tough loss last week, look for them to get back on track against a less-talented Run TMC team.

Players to watch: Kevin Blake (Run TMC), John Brolet (BS&B)

  • Brolet: 13 points, seven rebounds last week
  • Blake: 12.4 PPG, 69.4 FG%

Potential Breakout Players: Andrew Sampietro (BS&B), Reggie Stewart (Run TMC)

  • Sampietro: 11 PPG tied for the team high
  • Stewart: 18 points in season debut last week

Legacy Leagues Predictions:

Will: Run TMC

Tyler: Blood, Sweat & Beers

Eric: Blood, Sweat & Beers

9PM: TEMPTATIONS (4-1) vs NO LIMIT (4-1)

This is looking like the best matchup of our week 6 slate, as two of the power house teams in this league will square off. No Limit’s starting rotation, the self-proclaimed “Core Four,” of Tarell Vargas, Howie Miller, John Rullan and Ronte Byrd is a tough match up for any team in this league. Carmine Santorelli and his high-powered Temptations offense will look to slow down this red hot No Limit team.

Players to watch: Carmine Santorelli (Temptations), Tarell Vargas (No Limit)

  • Santorelli: 21 points and five rebounds in week 5
  • Vargas: 27 points, 11 rebounds and ten assists in week 5 (BTX Global Player of the Week)

Potential Breakout Players: Fred Milfort (Temptations), Ronte Byrd (No Limit)

  • Milfort: 11 points and six rebounds last week
  • Byrd: 12 points and six rebounds in week 5

Legacy Leagues Predictions:

Will: Temptations

Tyler: Temptations

10PM: TITANS (0-5) vs ONE TIME (0-5)

Since losing Eric Rankin prior to week 3, One Time has been free-falling. Mike Cody has done what he can, but this team is quite frankly out of its league. The Titans have been playing their best basketball of the season, and all signs are pointing towards them getting their first win of the season this week. The Titans chemistry is much approved and it has translated positively on the court.

Players to watch: Steven Echols (Titans) , Mike Cody (One Time)

  • Echols: 11.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG
  • Cody:  32 points and eight rebounds last week

Potential Breakout Players: Derrick Edwards (Titans), Kyle Murphy (One Time)

  • Edwards: 15 points and seven rebounds last week
  • Murphy: Seven points and five rebounds last week

Legacy Leagues Predictions:

Will: One Time

Tyler: Titans

Eric: Titans

Ian:  Titans


10PM: AIR BALLERS (0-5) vs GOON SQUAD (4-1)

It has been a tough season for the Air Ballers and they will not be shown and mercy as a surging Goon Squad team awaits them in week 6. Goon Squad knocked off the Titans last week and are shaping up to be a strong playoff contender in this league. Matt Marconi’s hot shooting, combined with his team’s high-energy approach on defense, makes this team a lot to handle for a struggling Air Ballers team.

Players to watch: Jaylon Smalls (Air Ballers), Matt Marconi (Goon Squad)

  • Smalls: 19.2 PPG, 9.0 RPG
  • Marconi: 20.8 PPG, 6.8 RPG

Potential Breakout Players: Pablo Rosa (Air Ballers), Matt DelMonte (Goon Squad)

  • Rosa: 17 points and six rebounds in week 5
  • DelMonte: 9.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG

Will: Air Ballers
