OnPoint Men's League hits the ground running

by jessie Williams

The completely overhauled OnPoint Men's Basketball league launched with a bang this past Sunday with some exciting plays and great games. The first game of the afternoon matched the SW Warriors from Anadarko against JReed's team M.O.B., who put up a league high 110 points to the SW Warriors 68.  Devin Ponder, who currently leads the league in scoring finished with 32 points and an emphatic 2-handed alley-oop slam from Justin Harris who contributed 23 points.  It wasn't all bad for the SW Warriors who has the league's second leading scorer; Josh Parton who dropped a silky smooth 27 points in the loss.

The second game of the day featured N.W.A.'s prep team squaring off against the OnPoint Outlaws who couldn't overcome a slow start in a losing effort that saw NW.A. put on a dunk fest towards the end of the game with DeAndre Williams leading a balanced scoring attack with 21 points followed by Rylan O'Brien dropping 20, Darnell Johnson putting in his bid with 17, and Terrell Phipps with 13.  The Outlaws were led in scoring by Ray Prince with 21 points and Steve Courgill with 20.  Big Scott Chestnut threw in a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds in the losing effort for the Outlaws who fail 98-84.

Phipps (N.W.A.) with the reverse jam.

The third and final game of the evening was perhaps the most competitive game of the night that came down to the final seconds as the Finesse Squad edged the M.V.P.'s by just 3 points, 76-79.  The M.V.P.'s were led by D. Finley with 21 but it wasn't enough as Finesse Squad, led in scoring by D. Tipton with 18, got the victory in a back-and-forth game that saw multiple lead changes throughout and was never a runaway in favor of either team.
