On the first night of action in the Summer 2017 season of Legacy Leagues, Stranger Danger was able to pull off a 69-57 win against The Double Dribblers. With all 20 teams using the first week as a stepping stone to see where their future in this league lies, Stranger Danger took its first step in the right direction.
Stranger Danger found scoring from new addition Zacarri Graham who lead the way with 20 points and nine rebounds while shooting 90% from the field. Graham, along with former 2-time All-Star Steven Echols, who provided 13 points and 6 assists, commanded the game and never let the Double Dribblers get comfortable or take control.
“We were pretty good in the first half moving the ball, and then we kinda got complacent in the second half…settling for jumpers, ” Stranger Danger’s Tyler Feldman said. “Once we started working off screens and moving the ball we were a much better team”.
For the Double Dribblers, they were working all game to fine tune their offense and find something of an offensive rhythm. Unfortunately for them the offense seemed to be stagnant, Jesse Doucette contributed 17 points on 6-of-9 from the field but the offensive cohesion was not there for the Double Dribblers. With only 18 rebounds as a team and 6 assists, the Double Dribblers must come into next week with a better game plan or they are in danger once again.
Stranger Danger will look to continue their little winning streak next week when they face The Throne who played phenomenal against the defending champion Monstars. The Double Dribblers will have an easier task at hand as they will face Flight club who are winless coming into week two as well.
