7:00 PM: Golden Gophers (0-1) vs. MMG (0-1)
Two new teams start week two hoping to hit the win column. This is our first legitimate look at MMG, comprised of some UH personnel.
Player to Watch: Maxx Nakwaasah
The Dallas director takes his talents to plano. I hear he’s pretty good!
8:00 PM: Contract Killers (0-1) vs. Black Beatles (0-1)
The Contract Killers broke out in the fall but dropped a close winter opener to The Soldiers. The Black Beatles are five deep but it’s a talented five. I’m looking forward to seeing how they matchup against the deep Killers.
Player to Watch: Alec Harris
The slasher for the Contract Killers can get buckets. Most of them come at the hoop, where he gets with ease. If the jumper can be more consistent he’s a big weapon.
8:00 PM: Tropics (0-1) vs. The Soldiers (1-0)
Two teams who have been good not great the past couple seasons, with the potential to be great. Or go the other direction.
Player to Watch: Will Haynes
Haynes was spectacular last week for The Soldiers and they got win accordingly. Can he keep it up?
9:00 PM: Easy Money (1-0) vs. Too Much Sauce (1-0)
Likely the game of the night, unless Too Much Sauce was just teasing us last week.
Player to Watch: Alec Gerber
The point guard for the Sauce will go up against the league’s finest in BJ Valentine. How he does will be a good barometer going forward.
9:00 PM: Giv3 N’ Go (1-0) vs. Torch (1-0)
The night ends in an intriguing matchup. Both teams are better than they were the last time they played, with Giv3 N’ Go sporting some new pieces and the Torch returning from a hiatus.
Player to Watch: Tim Moore
Moore was huge last week for the Torch, who could use a dominant presence to help the combat the star-heavy league. Let’s see what he’s got for an encore.
