Missing leading scorer Reggie Stewart (24.8 PPG) was critical in Run TMC losing for the first time this year, in Week 8 to the talented Redeem Team. When Stewart  is on the floor, there is no doubt that this team is a contender. However, when he’s not there, the rest of the team hasn’t stepped up. Having one double digit scorer in Dom Langston with 23 points isn’t going to cut it in the playoffs, but with Stewart back we could be seeing them in the Finals.




Having to play two games in Week 8, the Flint Tropics still pulled off two big wins, one being against rival Shocker City. The league’s second highest scorers as a team with 702 points talks the talk, and walks the walk. The Flint Tropics play a fast-paced style, and they love to get out in transition. Led by reigning MVP Mike Bozzuto (19.7 PPG), and getting major contributions from Nick Japs and Dom Migliaro, the Flint Tropic seem hungry to secure the Summer 2019 championship.



After losing to Shocker City in Week 7, Redeem Team knocked off previously undefeated Run TMC in Week 8. This team is very tough to play, no matter who is on the floor. Tenacious on defense, Redeem Team’s Eric Singleton leads the league in steals with 31, and Melquan Horton leads the league in rebounds (86). When this team is clicking, it will be hard for any team to stop them. Having every single player on the roster averaging over 10.0 PPG doesn’t hurt either.




NickStrong is arguably the most red hot team in Legacy Leagues right now. Since Week 4, when they added Chris Leak to the roster, NickStrong has streaked to five-straight wins and doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Led by Michael Vessicchio’s 20.3 PPG NickStrong will just keep running without getting tired. This team is ferocious on the boards, and Vessicchio runs a balanced offense with key players like Chris Leak and Ryan Florentine. This team’s strength and durability could carry them far in the postseason.



I don’t think Shocker City would be this low if they had only lost to the Flint Tropics in Week 8. However, in their first game of this past week, the team came out flat and was upset by a young Scott’s Tots team. Don’t get me wrong, this team is talented, but right now something just isn’t clicking. Carmine Santorelli was held to just two points against the Flint Tropics, and the team is missing leading blocker David Armstrong (25 blks) for the rest of the season to an injur. Although leading the league in points with 726, Shocker City will have to get some momentum going into the playoffs.



Sportslook’s four-game losing streak came to an end after an impressive victory over Tune Squad. Although down to four men, this team battled for the victory. Tune Squad’s Jaden Battle had 41 points this week, but the balanced offense of Sportslook was too much to overcome. Matt Marconi, Dan Kokkoros and Bryan Acevedo did their thing in Week 8, and look to turn things around just in time for the postseason. Don’t count out Sportslook who is a team full of players who have made deep playoff runs.



Scott’s Tots improved to 3-5 after upsetting Shocker City in Week 8. This team doesn’t necessarily have the highest-powered offense, but they certainly play as a team. Scrappy, and hard to knock off the ball, Scott’s Tots plays as though this isn’t their first time playing together, because it isn’t. Led by Noah Raffone’s 15.3 PPG, this team is tough and will become a nuisance to any team in the playoffs.



Tune Squad fought hard, but came up short to a shorthanded Sportslook team in Week 8. Essentially, this team is surrounded around two players in Jaden Battle (22.8 PPG) and Chad McKoy (20.0). However, as of late, McKoy has been having a tough time finishing at the rim. When it comes down to it, Battle is the one player this team has, and needs to continue to rely on if they want to win. Posting 41 points in their Week 8 loss, Battle is extremely tough to stop when he is feeling it.



The Silly Sehnders dropped its third game in a row, with a 50-point loss to NickStrong in Week 8. On the offensive side, this team is actually pretty talented. Bolstered by Brendan Carey (15.0 PPG) and Brendan Bucher (14.9 PPG), the Silly Sehnders could be a threat when they get going on offense. However, it is down low where this team struggles. They lack a big man to protect the basket, and are the only team in the league with single digit blocks (8) this season.



Week in and week out, the Brick Layers have improved in all aspects. The team is led by Jason Bindner’s 20.1 PPG who is in contention for a possible All-Star nod. The team plays a decent brand of basketball on the offense side, but it is defensively where this team seems to struggle. Having only held three opponents under 100 points, the Brick Layers will need to become feistier in the paint if they want to succeed in the playoffs.
