Congratulations to team Rebellion for winning the very first ever Pinoy Pride Basketball League recreation division championship! The game was full of excitement from the very beginning. The Hennessy Boys had their runs and the Rebellion always answered back with their own runs. The game was like watching a tennis championship match going back and forth to the last second. A key block by Jerome and a key play by Al put the game away. Rebellion, lead by Mikko with 25 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists won the finals MVP. The Rebellion did a very good job containing the regular season MVP John Mortera, holding him to 11 points, 10 rebounds and 1 block, cutting his regular season scoring average in half. Hennessy Boys, lead by Darnell with 22 points, 8 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks, but not enough to help the Hennessy Boys. Again congratulations to Rebellion! Next season, will we see a repeat from the Rebellion? Or will we see a new champion?
