7:00 PM: MMG (2-2) vs. Easy Money (4-0)
Staff battles! MMG are very confident in their ability to make a statement and quite the statement it would be. Easy Money haven’t played a competitive game in a while, having blown out the Torch and the Golden Gophers.
Matchup to Watch: Maxx Nakwaasah vs. Brandon Barkley
Two guys who do everything on the floor. Everything. Including running leagues.
8:00 PM: Tropics (2-2) vs. Giv3 N’ Go (3-1)
After starting 0-2, the Tropics have won two in a row. Giv3 N’ Go has lost one game this year, to Too Much Sauce by four points in week three.
Matchup to Watch: Adam Miller vs. Adam Bush
Two big man who rebound extremely well. But what makes these two so good is their offensive ability and soft touch around the basket.
8:00 PM: Golden Gophers (0-4) vs. The Soldiers (4-0)
The Gophers haven’t won in the winter, The Soldiers haven’t lost. Nothing will change.
Matchup to Watch: Deron Posey vs. Paul Starr
Posey does what Starr does. He shoots a lot. Fortunately, they both make a ton of them and thus are two of the league’s most electric scorers.
9:00 PM: Contract Killers (1-3) vs. Torch (1-3)
Last season’s darlings have stumbled out of the gates. The Killers three losses are by a combined 11 points. The Torch have defeated the winless Gophers and done nothing else so far.
Matchup to Watch: Alec Harris vs. Kreston Martin
Harris gets to the basket as well as anyone in the league. Martin can get there too. He also has a underrated three point shot. Both are also premier on-ball defenders.
9:00 PM: Black Beatles (0-4) vs. Too Much Sauce (3-1)
The Beatles are the other team without a win and it would be a shock to have it come this week. Too Much Sauce have won two in a row and their only loss was a close game against Easy Money where they had yet to acquire Jeremiah Hopkins.
Matchup to Watch: Kendall Britton vs. Alec Gerber
Two point guards from the Plano (Britton, West; Gerber, Central) high school systems will duel like old times.
