Funches
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.

Chaz Dudley
Beltway Bombers - 2 months ago
The 2X American Professional Basketball League (APBL) champion Beltway Bombers do not use the the "defending ". Bombers CEO and Head Coach Chaz Dudley has instructed his players and assistant coaches to not say defending champs. "It connotates a defensive posture" says Coach Chaz. "What we accomplished last year in winning our 2nd APBL chip was a great achivement, but this season is a new journey. We are not defending, we instead are aggressively pursuing our 3rd". While the Bombers are d...   [read more]
