Our First Two Hall Of Fame Nominees Announced. Congrats, Chase and Mike!
Each week, we search through our 360 media coverage to highlight the week that was in Ultimate Hoops Leagues.
Two players are getting featured this week as the first two nominees for the Ultimate Hoops Hall of Fame have been announced. Michael Mastro of New York and Chase Skinkis of Las Vegas are the first two of the 14 nominees to be announced. Both have had immense success in their respective regions. For full breakdowns of their Hall of Fame resumees, you can visit our official Hall of Fame page.
Donald Dangmuk won his first-ever Ultimate Hoops championship on Tuesday night when The Arhritics defeated Eight Bad Knees 64-63 to win the Tempe vet championship. Dangmuk had six points and six assists in the win, and he finished one point shy of hitting 1,000 career points in the win. It won't take long for Dangmuk to reach that next season.
A couple other players finished their seasons inches away from a milestone, which will have to come in the Spring season.
Anthony Muscat currently sits at 1,498 career assists. Muscat played in the Shelby vet league in the Winter. If he comes back in the Spring, expect to see him in the 1,500 assist club soon.
Paul Ferber finished the Winter season with 698 blocks. It won't take him long into the Spring season in Bloomington South to surpass 700 blocks. He would be just the third player in Ultimate Hoops history to have 700 blocks or more.
