After showing once again that they are the class of the league, the seemingly unstoppable trio of Tarell Vargas, Howie Miller, and John Rullan combined for 71 of the team’s 83 points in their win over Goon Squad this past week. A showdown with the Temptations stands between them and a perfect regular season. Despite being first in the rankings, they most likely will not be the no. 1 seed in the playoffs, as the tie breaker of point differential looks like it will go to the Cereal Killers.

green arrow up 1 After yet another dominant win, the Cereal Killers check in second in the Power Rankings. Their high-powered offense was in full gear this past week, as six of their eight players scored in double figures, totaling 108 points. While their pressure defense continued to be effective with 12 steals, Goon Squad may have something to say about this team finishing the regular season undefeated. They will look to secure the no. 1 seed in the playoffs via the point differential tie-breaker with a win.


Red-emption logo


green up 1 on gray After passing their latest test of the season, defeating the Monstars in Week 9, Red-emption finds themselves climbing up the Power Rankings at the right time of the season. MVP candidate Jalen Graham continued his spectacular play with 28 points and 13 rebounds, hitting timely bucket after timely bucket to secure the win. With Scott Corchard back on the court, they will look to continue their hot play next week against Goon Squad, as they are definitely a team to watch come playoffs.


Monstars logo


red down 2 white One of the few teams that completed their season on-time last week, the Monstars perhaps did not end it the way they would have liked. In their loss to Red-emption, rotation issues reared its ugly head, as star players Corey Jacobs and Reggie Stewart were on the bench with under 3 minutes left in a five-point game. They now sit and watch how the seeding will shake out, giving them time to prepare for a deep playoff run.


Temptations logo


After a two game skid, the Temptations rebounded with an impressive win over Run TMC. Carmine Santorelli seems to be back to his old tricks, with a near triple-double of 30 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists. The Temptations still have two games left to play, but have nearly secured themselves as a top-five seed, owning the tie-breaker over the only team within striking distance: Run TMC.

Despite a loss this week to the Temptations, Run TMC find themselves in the same spot as the previous Power Rankings. Without their full squad, having only five players, they took the Temptations down to the wire, led by Kevin Blake’s breakout performance. They need at least one win, out of two games, next week to supplant The Firm as the six seed, pending tie-breakers. With games against Lob 203 and Sportslook, a top six seed seems very much in play.

After another tough loss, Goon Squad finds themselves where they left off Week 7. With no Matt Marconi, they put up a tough fight against no. 1-ranked No Limit, but ultimately fell short. They have three wins to date, and two very tough games ahead of them against Red-emption and the Cereal Killers. Lob 203, who owns the head-to-head tie-breaker, is on their tails for seeding as the playoffs await.


The Firm log


After a shocking loss to the Avengers, The Firm rebounded with an offensive explosion against a shorthanded Light It Up squad. A balanced attack was the formula for victory, as three players scored 20 points. They will need to wait and see what happens next week to find out their playoff destiny, as competing teams Run TMC and Renegades both play twice. It’s looking like the Firm can finish anywhere from seeds 6-10.

After finally getting their first win of the season two weeks ago, Lob 203 picked up their second consecutive win, this time against Sportslook. The dynamic duo of Paul Mirmina and Andrew Martino continue to the lead the way with 29 of their team’s 57 points against Sportslook. They will look to climb past other three-win teams (Stranger Danger and Goon Squad) in the standings next week as they take on Run TMC and the Renegades.


Renegades logo


After previously being winless without star player Ty Reed, the Renegades pulled through with a Reed-less victory over White Magic. Zeek Howard and Davin Sirpenski picked up the slack, scoring 42 of their 60 points as a team. They will look to get Reed back and build more momentum towards playoff success next week against both the Temptations and Lob 203. The Renegades can finish anywhere from seeds 6-12, making these last two games very important.


The Rookies logo


green up 2 gray Ending their season on a high note, a two-game winning streak, The Rookies have the week off and will wait and see where they finish in the standings. Potential All-Star Jhamal Jones dropped 30 points on the Avengers in their blowout win. Despite closing out the season well, they will have to wait and see what three-win teams Stranger Danger and Goon Squad do to find out their finalized playoff spot. The lowest they can fall to is the 12-seed.


stranger danger logo


Despite dropping their second-consecutive game, Stranger Danger finds themselves right where they left off in the previous Power Rankings. In their blowout loss to the Cereal Killers, key player Steve Echols was ineffective. He will need to rebound next week against Sportslook as they push for a top-10 seed in the playoffs. Stranger Danger is looking like they will finish somewhere between the nine and 12 seeds.

red down 2 gray The disappointing season continues for previously powerful Sportslook. Their last loss to the recently-winless Lob 203 was their sixth loss of the year. Missing star Tyrell Holmes and only mustering up a measly 40 points did not help their cause for a victory. They do, however, have two games remaining, against Stranger Danger and Run TMC as they try to avoid finishing in the bottom two seeds.

green arrow up 1 The Avengers had an inspired win over The Firm in a shortened Week 8, but the momentum was abruptly halted the following week against the surging Rookies. Sharpshooter Zach Shapiro came out cold from deep, shooting 4-for-13 from three. With their season all finished up, they will look for one and two-win teams (Sportslook and Lob 203) to have poor showings next week to improve their playoff standing. Avengers have the head-to-head tiebreaker over White Magic, so the 14-seed is their floor.

red down 1 on gray Finishing their season with a tough loss to the Renegades, White Magic finds themselves in a familiar spot at no. 15 in the Power Rankings. Despite the loss, Steven Buczek continued his solid play with 23 points, but with only one other play scoring in double figures, White Magic will need better team play come playoff time. This team now waits to see how things shake out, with the possibility of finishing 12-15 still in play.


Light It Up logo


After losing their sixth-straight game, Light It Up once again holds the final spot in the Power Rankings. With only four players available for their last game, the lack of depth took its toll on the defensive end, as they gave up 105 points to The Firm in the loss. They will be up against monumental odds in the playoffs, facing off against either Cereal Killers or No Limit pending on how things shake out in week 10.
