After 3 seasons in the ARC League, Balboa’s captured 2 championship wins. This season was exceptionally more challenging considering 14 teams were on the bracket. The playoffs had to be separated into two divisions based on wins. Balboa was seeded at number 3 with 6 wins and 2 losses to end the season. In total 9 wins including the championship game. The team faced some outstanding opposition during the playoffs.
First, was Future Ballers which had some size against Balboa. But speed prevailed this day as the boys were able to cruise to a 48-19 win. Second was Playmakers. A superb shooting team that could never be underestimated as the boys found out earlier in the season when they were handed their first lost. Even after trailing by double digits to catch up, time ran out; loosing by 2 pts. The boys couldn’t wait to have the opportunity to play them again. This time the boys were prepared and played some outstanding defense. In which they held Playmakers to 25 points. Opposite of the 30+ during the regular season against other teams. Taking the win 38-24 and moving onto the championship.
The main stage was against GYGR. This team was stacked in which they had both size and shooting skills. Off the gate the boys were focused on the task at hand. Execution was key and execute they did. Shots where dropping, lay ups falling, blocks were happening, everyone showed up to play. Their hunger showed on the floor as they battled their way to a 54-43 win.
This playoff & championship game by far was the best team basketball Balboa’s played to date. Playoffs and championship games are more memorable when you play against a worthy opponent. These teams are more than worthy. Outstanding clubs that is well coached and is a highly competitive caliber type teams.
