Two of the lower-ranked teams in the league will face each other this week. White Magic is still searching for their first win, while Light It Up will be going for their first win in since week 3. With neither team being known for their high scoring, this should be a game where offense and hitting shots is the difference.

In order to achieve victory, Goon Squad’s Matt Marconi and DJ Ellis will have to make their shots, get rebounds and play really tight defense.
