follow us on
The Metropolitan All-Stars, down by six (6) points with 17.5 seconds remaining in regulation, pulled out a miraculous victory by scoring 8 straight point to hand the Rockville Victors their first defeat of the season 108 to 106. The All-Stars were led in scoring by Cedric Steward and Antwon 'The Hawk' Hawkins with 20 points each, followed by Elyon Bush with 19, Curtis Massey with 18 and Curtis Crews with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Coach Al Brown said " it's always good to see how your team responds to adversity early in the season, especially when you have several new players to fit into your rotation." One of those new players, Cutis Massey, had an excellent debut with the All-Stars. Playing limited minutes, Massey made the most of his time on the court scoring 18 point and getting several key offensive rebounds to help secure the victory for the All-Stars. Antwon Hawkins and Cedrick Stewart both had steals and lay-ups in the final seconds of the game to lead their team to their first win of the new season. Our guys never give up, they always believe that they can win no matter what the situation, that's what I love about this team" says Brown, "they believe in themselves when nobody else in the gym does, and they play for 48 minutes, that's our motto (48 GRIND)". The All-Stars were also playing without several of their key players, including Eric Poole, Terrance Carter, Andrew Harding and Calvin Brown. These four players accounted for over 55 points and over 30 rebounds and over 15 assists last season, all of them will be in action next week with the exception of Calvin Brown, who is just stating the play-offs in Lima Peru. The All-Stars play the APBL defending champions, the Beltway Bombers, on Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 1:00pm @ Central High School, 200 Cabin Branch Road, Capitol Height, MD 20743 and the All-Stars also play this Sunday, November 11, 2012 @ 1:00 against the Capital City Express @ the Benning Road Recreation Center on Benning Road in North East Washington, DC. Anthony Williams 21 points, Tavares Cooper 18 points, Armond Hill 17 points and Pierre Johnson 14 led the Victors in scoring in defeat. The victors made (9) 3 point baskets and led most of the game, but the All-Stars defense down the stretch made the difference in the games outcome.

A weekend filled with intense basketball ended much like the 2015 championship. Defending champion New Jersey Thunder needed a late basket to win the APBL title, this time it was a one-point victory over Hudson Valley Kingz.
In a wild back-and-forth affair, New Jersey took a slim 22-21 lead after one quarter. Hudson Valley played much more confident in the second to lead at halftime 52-46.
Both teams made runs in the third quarter with the Thunder first. After the home team build up a six-point advantage 67-61, the Kingz stormed back and by the end of the quarter led 76-74.
A close fourth quarter followed with Hudson Valley building a five-point lead with 4:57 to play. New Jersey would not go down easy, but still trailed by five with 1:38 left. That margin was cut to one with :14 remaining. A foul was called on the next play and after two free throws New Jersey led 98-97!
Hudson Valley did not panic, taking possession with :09 to play. A drive to the paint by Shereef Taylor resulted in a pair of free throws for the Kingz, who led 99-98 with just :04 on the clock. After a timeout the Thunder inbounded the ball from half court and found a streaking Charles Funches (6'8''-F-88, college: Hampton) under the basket. Although contested Funches easily scored to make it 100-99. Hudson Valley called timeout, but threw the ball away and their shot at the championship.
