Funk House Wins Big In OT!
Funkhouse for the second time this week, plays in a big game and answer the moment, moving to 5-1 after a 76-67 victory over the BF Crazies.
FunkHouse got off to a good start, building a 23-10 lead in the first 6 minutes of the game, Justin Black leading the way, scoring 18 points in the first half. The Crazies were a little short on players and got a couple guys from out the stands, one of them being NBA pro, Quinn Cook. But even with Cook on the court, the Crazies still found themselves down early, something they have been doing all summer.
Of course they would make a run, playing good defense on the perimeter. Malcom Clark and Dev took on the scoring load early for the Crazies, combining for 16 of the Crazies 31 first half points. Maryland Dude Lou also scored the Crazies’ first 5 points but only finished with 7 points.
Malcom ended up with 18 points leading all Crazies.
The game was back and forth for much of the second half and both teams had moments where they could have won the game. With nine minutes remaining, FunkHouse had a 4-point lead before they gave up a three-ball to Cook that made it 51-53. FunkHouse built another 5-point lead with two minutes remaining but a three-pointer from Trey made it a two-point game with a little over a minute remaining.
It was that type of game.
Both teams traded free throws in the last minute, leaving the game tied with 14 seconds on the clock possession arrow to the Crazies. Malcom got the play call and set up Trevelin “Real Deal” Queen on island, going by him before hitting the go-ahead layup with .04 seconds remaining. At that point the home crowd thought it was over and the Crazies would steal one from FunkHouse. Instead, Justin Black drew the foul that sent him to the line, knocking down two free throws to send it into overtime.
The Real Deal then added to his short Goodman resume, scoring all ten points for FunkHouse in overtime; two threes, two dunks, and a block, giving him 18 for the night. If you thought Thursday Night was a fluke, guess again. The kid can boogie and even former Washington Wizard, now Sacramento King, Garrett Temple, came up to speak with the 19-year old after the game.
Quinn Cook finished with 16 points and was a little upset about the loss after the game. He admitted that he was not prepared to play tonight, but he seen that the Crazies needed some help. From his comments, this might not be the last time we see the former Blue Devil Inside The Gates.
Black led all scorers with 34 points, continuing his push for MVP. Even with a pro on the floor, Black was still the best player on the court. No one could stop him from getting to his spots and he lived inside the paint, he was basically unstoppable.
Funkhouse will now be tied for first place after Lincoln Park and Drew All-Stars. Loser of that game will be outside looking on the race for the Regular season title game. Stay Tuned!
