BARRY FARMS — For the third summer in a row, there is a new regular season champion in the Goodman League.
Team J, in their second season Inside the Gates, claimed the 2017 Regular Season title. In the two games of the season, they defeated two Goodman League Powerhouses, Madness and Funkhouse.
Madness was regular season champs two summers ago but could not knock off the new hot team in the regular season Finals.
Team J defeated Madness and Funkhouse by a margin of 14.5 points, averaging 52 points in both contest.
The only this season came against Bump n Run earlier this season. They avenged that loss later in the summer with a 51-49 victory, which help them stay in contention for the regular season title.
Seven different players led Team J in scoring in all their wins this season. That kind of depth will be needed during the playoffs, when most teams bring out their ″wild-cards″.
Team J will start their quest for a Goodman League title Tuesday, as they take on Face Mob. The last team to claim both regular season and Goodman League title was Madness. Can Team J run the table? Stay Tuned!
Team J is the GOODMAN LEAGUE REGULAR SEASON CHAMPS defeating MADNESS! CONGRATULATIONS TO TEAM J!
