#3 FOE ADVANCES TO TITLE GAME
August 10, 2018 By Sean Brunson Share:
ESPN was in the building, it seemed as if the whole city packed into the gymnasium on the campus of Baltimore City Community College, and the players were ready to put on a show. The highly anticipated matchup between FOE and PTF last month was expected to be a fight, outside of the unfortunate exchange between Aquille Carr and Roscoe Smith, there wasn’t one.
In the blink of an eye FOE was down double-digits and would end up losing the game 80-54.
Now they’ll have a chance at redemption.
#3 FOE (9-2) defeated #10 Team Dream (6-5) in a defensive battle by a final score of 59-52 on Friday night to advance to the title game.
Aquille “Crimestopper” Carr led the way for FOE with 21 points including going 6-6 from the free throw line. Malcolm Delaney, still recovering from his ankle injury, was their second leading scorer with 8 points and led the team in rebounds and assists with 6 and 4 respectively.
Team Dream was looking to advance to the title game and pull off another upset in the tournament after already knocking off #2 Sam’s Ballers, but it was not meant to be.
Nardie Bogues led Team Dream with 16 points, but after being on fire from deep the last four weeks, he finally went cold from beyond the arc and went 1-6 from deep. Bogues has now reached THE FOUR and come one win short of reaching the championship game three years in a row. Antoine “Fresh” Myers was the team’s second leading scorer with 15 points and former Syracuse star C.J. Fair had 6 points and 5 rebounds.
FOE and PTF were the two teams most of Baltimore expected to reach Sunday’s championship game and they have. If the size of the crowd for the regular season game between these two teams is any indication of what to expect Sunday night I have one suggestion for everyone planning to be in attendance, GET THERE EARLY!
