follow us on
The Undefeated Metropolitan All-Stars escaped with a narrow victory over the Capital City Express.
The Metropolitan All-Stars, playing for the second time in as many days, came away with another victory by defeating the Capital City Express 106 97. The All-Stars came out a little flat but still managed to lead 29 24 after the first quarter and 54 41 at the half. The express, a determined and scrappy group came roaring back in the fourth quarter cutting the lead to three on three different occasions before succumbing to the bigger All-Stars. Terrance Carter again led the way for the All-Stars with 22 points. The All-Stars got lots of help from newcomer, Raason Young, a high flying, sharp shooting 65 guard, who scored a career high, 21 points, including several gravity defying slam dunks that really got the crowd excited. Cedric Steward, the teams floor general, had a very solid performance scoring 15 points, on many slashing moves to the basket, handing out many assists to open team mates and playing solid defense against the Expresss point guards, forcing many turnovers down the stretch. Antwon Hawkins turned in a very high energy performance scoring 16 points and playing tenacious defense all over the court, his athletic ability was very evident and he made several high flying blocks. Elyon Bush 13 points and Will Schwartzstein 11 points rounded out the double digit scoring for the All-Stars. All-Stars coach Al Brown says, This was a very hard fought game for both teams, the players are very familiar with one another and go at each other very competitively, we were still a little banged up from our game yesterday and it showed down the stretch, at one point we missed 7 of 8 free throws. The owner of the team, Calvin Brown, Jr., who is currently in Lima, Peru completing the playoffs there, said, Its good to have played and defeated the three other teams in our division, especially since they include the defending APBL champions and the Goodman summer league champions. We still have a lot of work to do, but if we can stay healthy and continue to improve, I like our chances, Im looking forward to coming home very soon. The Express were led in scoring by Quentin Morrow 22 points, Darin Mancy 19, Will Southhorn 15, Nicholas Griffin 12, Wesley Hunt 11 and Andre Hardy 10. Both teams are in actions again next week with away games. The All-Stars play @ the Rockville Victors and the Express play @ NYC 524.

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.
