Lob City


Lob City is picking up where they left off last season. Led by Victor Kashouh, they beat the Boston Blazers by 47 and had complete control all four quarters. This team is deep with talent, having several scorers on the floor at any given time, and are defensively anchored by a rebounding and shot blocking machine named Joey Coro. Lob City is the team to beat so far this Winter as many expected entering Week 1.




The Werewolves had a very efficient outing against Duje’s Boys, making 61 percent of their field goals. Brian Heston going 12-for-16 and having a game-high 25 points boosted his team to a 25-point victory. They held Duje’s Boys to 37 percent from the field and only 20 percent from 3. This team can defend the floor and runl the offense efficiently with a multitude of scorers, but can they keep this up against stiffer competition?




Boom-Shakalaka started out sloppy against the Skyhookers. By trying to push the ball up the court quickly every chance they had, they turned it over a lot and missed layups. But in a close game, Cole Ferguson and Lucas Martin held on to a small lead by being their teams go to scorers. Boom-Shakalaka also looks as if some of their players are adjusting to the lower rims, which takes time. Look for increased efficiency in the upcoming weeks from these guys.


Halfway Crooks


The Halfway Crooks are one of two teams who did not play in Week 1, but are being talked about as a top-3 team. The additions of Justin Kolenda and Brett Cody to a solid core of Dylan Lincoln and Jared Hanson could make this team a tough out come playoff time. They will make their debut in Week 2, and will look to show how dominant they can be.


Swish Kabobs


The Swish Kabobs did not play in Week 1, but are reloaded and ready to make a run deep into the playoffs this season. Tyler Barbosa and Greg Bell return from last season’s team, but a new cast of teammates will make their debut in Week 2. Knowing what the Swish Kabobs have done in the past, they are one of the teams expected to be in the top portion of these rankings week in and week out.


Alaskan Bull Worms


Although shooting just 13 percent from three and 38 percent from the floor, the Alaskan Bull Worms beat the Pizza Rolls in both team’s first Legacy Leagues game. Aaron Morrell and Justin Simmons look to take on the scoring load this season, combining for over half of the team’s points. They may want to consider attacking the rim more as they had success on the offensive glass. The rest of the team needs to shoot more efficiently if this team wants to continue winning.




Although these guys have two big men in Zach and Chase Almond, they weren’t able to use their size to their advantage. They tied with Boom-Shakalaka in the rebound battle, and neither big man scored in double-digits. They may want to consider staggering their bigger players playing time so they don’t crowd the paint.  Improvements in free throw and 3-point shooting can earn this team wins over the course of the season.


Duje’s Boys


The Duje’s Boys struggled to make threes this week, only connecting on 20 percent of them while jacking up 30 attempts in their game against the Werewolves. John Coutu put up 18, but it wasn’t enough to earn the win. Duje’s Boys may not have enough scorers to compete with some of the top dogs, but we’ll see if Jordan Lugo and Brian Lattimer can come back from a poor shooting week.  Rebounding is another weakness they need to address, having been outrebounded 36-28 in Week 1.


Boston Blazers


The Boston Blazers looked like a new team to the league in Week 1, and should improve as they adjust to the lower rims. Although their first game was against the defending champions in Lob City, the Boston Blazers looked very off with many of their jump shots. Corey Strickland looks to be an athletic guard who’s not afraid to put up shots. He may be a player to watch during this season as he gets accustomed to the league.  


Pizza Rolls


The Pizza Rolls shot 29 percent from the floor in their loss against the Alaskan Bull Worms. Leading scorer Benjamin Floyd put up 19 points, making half his attempts and hitting four out of nine threes. The rest of the team shot 25 percent or lower, other than Zachary Dionizio who shot 38.5 percent. The Alaskan Bull Worms also outrebounded them 44-26. The Pizza Rolls should look to get Floyd more shot attempts if he continues to make them at a high rate.
