Metropolitan All-Stars defeated the defending champions, the Beltway Bombers
The Metropolitan All-Stars defeated the Beltway Bombers; the APBLs defending champions, 109 106 in a very hotly contested game. The All-Stars, playing at home for the second time this season, remained undefeated by applying a tenacious defensive strategy after half time. The Bombers scored 61 points by half time, which prompted All-Stars coach, Al Brown, to bark at his player you guys are playing like you are playing the defending champions and not like you are playing someone who is trying to take a game from you on your home court. After being down by nine points at the half, the All-Stars held the Bombers to just 17 points in the third quarter while scoring 33 points in the same quarter. Defense is what keeps us in every game that we play says Coach Brown, we were playing against a very talented team and we had to make a defensive statement in order to win. The lead in the game changed hands several times before the All-Stars secured the victory. Terrance Carter took the game high scorer title scoring 31 points in a stellar performance on both ends of the court. Carter scored from every way imaginable, including 3 three point baskets, several driving layups and 5 free throws. The All-Stars also got plenty of help from Burgess Williams who contributed 17 points and controlled the boards and clogged the middle. Cedric Stewart did a masterful job of running the team offence and finding the open man all game long, Cedric also contributed 16 points and many assists and rebounds. Elyon Bush totaled 14 and did a good job of keeping the Bombers leading scorer, Hugh Baby Shaq from having one of his usual big scoring outputs, holding him to 23 points and not shooting a high percentage when it counted most. Antwon Hawkins chipped in with 13 points and a very high energetic performance on both ends of the court. The fans were treated some very athletic and powerful moves throughout the game by both teams. Jamaal Wise helped to keep the Bombers in contention scoring 17 points; the Bombers placed 5 players in double figures. The All-Stars play again this Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 1:00pm at the Richard England Police Boys & Girls Club #14 at 4103 Benning Road N.E., Washington D.C.

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.

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.
