Championship Tuesday has arrived! Along with the two pre-season favourites, Parlez De Nous (9-0) vs Monstars (8-1).
This is sure to be a game worth watching as both teams are chomping at the bit to get the Championship trophy awarded to them.
PDN has remained unbeaten this season with strong play from any given player on any given Tuesday. A very important piece to their game plan is the play of their guards who seem to do it all, filling the stat sheet on a consistent basis. Last week, Harvey messed around and got a triple double and seems to be playing his best basketball at the right time. Manny Campbell on the court has been the constant leader for the team and will be leaned on heavily to close out the season. But do not count out their bigs, Hattin, Licorish and Darrell can all put up points and protect the rim. A well balanced attack all season from PDN. Can they complete the perfect season?
Monstars have a wealth of height and a deep bench which keeps a steady rotation of fresh players on the court. Monstars will be looking for redemption as the only time they suffered defeat this year was against PDN in a hard fought battle. This team seems like they have been playing together for years as their chemistry is second to none. They can seamlessly turn on the power button at any time in the game and pull away with a lethal inside out attack. Johnson, Hunt, Michaud, Christie and Dowhaniuk are all great passing big men who take the ball hard to the rim and shoot. This core of big men might be the best group of passing big men collectively the NBBL has even seen. The bigs can definitely bang and the guards are great defenders that spread the rock and have been on fire from beyond the arc.
Get your popcorn ready because this is going to be a battle of two championship caliber teams looking to for that sweet sweet victory.
