Early-Season Tournament Championship Game: [#1] Pimpology2 vs [#3] LoL

#1 Pimpology2
Captain: naptownplayers
Tournament Record: 8-2

ROAD TO THE FINAL
* Pool Phase #1
Pimpology2 122-95 CR Veterans
Team Wafu 103-105 Pimpology2
Pimpology2 102-111 Old School All-Stars

* Pool Phase #2
LoL 107-120 Pimpology2
Manchester Rain 97-105 Pimpology2
Pimpology2 98-108 Animal House
Pimpology2 108-94 Team Wafu
Pimpology2 88-85 NFL Blitz

* Quarter-Final
[#1] Pimpology 2 102-99 [#8] Old West

* Semi-Final
[#1] Pimpology2 111-95 [#4] Manchester Rain


Why They Will Win
* Traditional Build with 2 scorers per line with a Rebounder, Blocker and Leadership player on each line has worked very well for them.
* They're the #1 seeds
* They only teams they have lost to are out of the tournament
* They beat LoL previously

Why They Will Lose
* Lack of Defense
* Lack of multi-facted players - Are they using specialties?
* LoL is the defending champion of the West League whereas Pimpology2 didn't exist last year
* Lack of 3pt Shooting on the bench




#3 LoL
Captain: mattya802
Tournament Record: 6-3

ROAD TO THE FINAL
* Pool Phase #1
Manchester Rain 107-104 LoL
LoL 104-97 Pacific Rimmers

* Pool Phase #2
LoL 107-120 Pimpology2
Animal House 120-123 LoL
NFL Blitz 73-99 LoL
LoL 87-96 Manchester Rain
LoL 119-104 Team Wafu

* Quarter-Final
[#3] LoL 98-92 [#6] Team Wafu

* Semi-Final
[#3] LoL 108-101 [#7] CR Veterans


Why They Will Win
* Defending Champions. They have the experience in finals - That showed in their semi-final performance
* Can't win against Manchester Rain - but they aren't playing Manchester Rain in the final. Their 3 loss record is deceiving due to that one team
* Mattya802 is the best captain in the game. He's had the #1 seeded team 2 seasons in a row and won the championship with LoL last season, along with his teams playing eachother in the semi-final of the tournament
* 4 Leadership players - Make his team hard to scout.

Why They Will Lose
* They have lost in their previous matchup to Pimpology2
* Lack of Blocking on the bench
* Lack of strong Rebounders
* 4 Leadership players - Can this work for the early-season tournament?



Who's side are you on? Predict the game.

Re: Early-Season Tournament Championship Game: [#1] Pimpology2 vs [#3] LoL

I predict Pimpolgy2 wins pretty easily, but I'm biased since MR is 4-1 against LoL and 0-2 against P2.

I'd go with P2 since they knocked out Old West in the Quarterfinals.  We did beat them just the other day though big_smile

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: [#1] Pimpology2 vs [#3] LoL
Aside from the first and last baskets of the quarter, Pimpology2 held the ascendancy for the entire first quarter. LoL was right there though with the lead never get better than 4 points. LoL's formidable scoring pair of Jarvan IV and Darius scored the first and last baskets of the quarter to give LoL a 20-19 lead at the quarter.

The second quarter was much of the same with LoL and Pimpology2 battled it out with LoL's lead being as big as 2 points and Pimpology's lead being as big as 5. Once again, Pimpology had the lead most of the quarter. Pimpology had an even scoring attack while LoL's scorer's Darius had 16 and Jarvan IV had 10 at the half. LoL very much relies on those scorers to get them going, and with Jarvan IV being particularly quiet - It may have been no surprise that Pimpology held a 44-42 lead at the half.

With Jarvan IV only scoring 4 more points in the next 6 minutes of the 3rd quarter, Pimpology maintained their slight lead 58-55. In contrast, Darius dropped 13 points in his 6 minute stint in the third quarter to finally give LoL a consistent lead at 74-70 at the conclusion of the third quarter - their biggest lead of the game.

With Pimpology2 staying in the same gear and Darius kicking it up a gear - It looked like LoL was prepared to go on a run and try and take the game. However, the Pimpology bench weren't prepared to like their lead slip so easily - with their duo of Bull Horn and Fly Guy starting the 4th quarter on a 10-6 run to tie the game at 80-80 with around 7 minutes to go. With the score standing at 85-80, in LoL's favour, when the starters came back in - It looked like the last 6 minutes were going to be heated.

It wasn't to be. LoL's starters scored on their first 6 possessions with Nidalee and Jarvan IV leading LoL on a 13-7 run to put the score at 98-87 with 3 minutes to go. Blackie Dee dropped two 3's for Pimpology on the ensuing possessions to try and get Pimpology back in the game, but it wasn't enough. With time not on their side and Jarvan IV getting an And-1 and a lay-up on back-to-back possessions, Pimpology couldn't contain the score. LoL finished the game at 105-95 in an entertaining final.

Finals MVP: Darius, LoL, 37 points

GG Nap! Was a close one, as I figured.

And again, big thanks to Harbour for doing all of this!
