Week in Review: 12.9.2017

Each week, we search through our 360 media coverage to highlight the week that was in Ultimate Hoops Leagues.

Player Spotlight

We have had leagues running in Las Vegas since the Summer of 2011. It has taken over six years, but a player in Vegas has now won over 300 games. L.C. Comine won his 300th game last week, the 26th player in UH to accomplish this feat. He won all four of the games he played in Vegas this week, putting his total up to 304. There is, and have been, a lot of talented players to play in Green Valley or Summerlin, but none of them have won as much as Comine has. 


Milestones

Kyle Meade played in his 450th Ultimate Hoops game on Wednesday in Bloomington South. He is just the 18th player to ever play 450 games in UH.

Sonny Young-Graves is just one point away from scoring his 8,500th point in UH. The Minnesota Rec Playoffs start next week, giving Young-Graves the opportunity to reach the milestone if he can score just one point. I like his chances. 

Mike Mastro needs 13 rebounds next week in Syosset to reach 4,000 for his career. Typically we wait until a player is within five or so to highlight the chance of a milestone, but Mastro is averaging over 15 rebounds per game in the Syosset open league this season. If the average bears out, he'll be the third player to ever grab 4,000 rebounds in Ultimate Hoops.

Gibbs and Williams Jr. both had great performances in the Arizona championship game, but Gibbs' Hard Work came out as the champions.
