Despite an even-scoring second half, it was a strong first half that helped J’s, Treys and Fadeaways earn a win in their first game of the Summer 18 season, 76-62. J’s, Treys and Fadeaways’ Joe Nemchek made his debut in the Legacy Leagues and led all scorers with 23 points.
Dinner’s Served (0-1) fell behind early, trailing 19-11 after the first quarter. They would lose the second quarter as well, facing a 14-point deficit heading into halftime. All teams take some time to adjust to the Legacy Leagues, and it appeared J’s, Treys and Fadeaways had an easier time adjusting.
J’s, Treys and Fadeaways (1-0) took control of the glass (35-26), but struggled shooting from behind the arc. They shot just 23.8 percent from deep, but that seemingly did not affect their ability to score from inside the arc. J’s, Treys and Fadeaways shot 47.7 percent from the floor compared to Dinner’s Served 35.2 percent.
Three players on each team scored in double figures. Dinner’s Served was led by Matt Terrasi who dropped 21 points including four 3-pointers. Both of these teams rank in the middle of the league in 3-pointers made through one game, so continuing to hit the deep ball will be a key to competing week in and week out.
J’s, Treys and Fadeaways heads into Week 2 preparing for a matchup with The Throne, who are coming off a loss to a tough Team Moose team. Dinner’s Served looks to get their first win against a 1-0 Run TMC squad.
