As they face the number-one team, Justice League. They look to knock them off of their top spot, and secure a spot in the playoffs.

4. Dat Ain’t Fair (4-3)

DAF dominated in the beginning of the season with winning their first four games, but recently have struggled the last three games coming up on the losing end. Last game, DeMarco Paige dropped 28 points, but it wasn’t enough as they fell to Justice League by two points. Coming into the last game of the regular season, they look to gain that winning mentality back as they play All or Nothing for one of the final spots in the playoffs.

Last week, after their second time defeating All or Nothing this season, Y-Lie is looking to do whatever it takes to secure a spot in the playoffs. Last game, Y-Lie’s Johnnie Brown led his team with a double-double with 14 points and 15 rebounds. This week as they take on BBB, Y-lie is going to need a win if they want to possibly secure a spot in the playoffs. 

6. Balkan Brother Brand (1-6)

After the game of the night last week, BBB finally gained their first win of the season. Both teams were neck and neck the entire game. With a few seconds on the clock, Alfonzo Eggleston inbounded the ball to Devon Keating, who swooped passed the defense for the game-winning layup. The young talent on this team shined as Devon finished with 33 points and 6 rebounds, and Alek Kume ended with 29 points and 12 rebounds. With the strong, young core on this team, we will hopefully see them return next season, back and stronger than ever.
