Sunday, January 8 at the Matt Jimenez Community Center the PPBL had its Sunday League championship game between the Hoop Breakers and Genesis, and what a game it was. An easy to way to describe the game would be like a game of tug o' war. Genesis was provided an early spark from Greg who had an outstanding first half when he scored 14 of his 19 points and looking unstoppable. While the Hoop Breakers having an answer of their own from Ben who racked up 3 steals and 12 points in the first half. Both teams got into foul trouble early and many free throws were taken due to the intense defense on both sides. The second half provided us with the fireworks as Finals MVP Mike came to life with 11 points and 4 assists in the 4th quarter, ultimately helping his team achieve the victory, but not without withstanding the Hoop Breakers 4th quarter comeback attempt. There wasn't enough time, and Genesis completed the undefeated season, 73-65. Congratulations to Genesis for their amazing feat, and thank you to the Hoop Breakers for the valiant effort!
