Game 96 - vs. Southern|
Following up a tough loss to the Phenoms, the Os sought to continue their trend of winning every other game. Unfortunately, Southern proved up to the challenge. With E-Bomb in Europe scouting for future Os, the Os were also short-handed, clearly the difference in the game.
The Os got off to a tremendously slow start and it did not get much better for the rest of the game. Scoring only 7 points in the first half, the Os had a large deficit to overcome. Some sharp shooting by Roster Guard and some inside baskets by Mr. Smooth were among the few bright spots for the team.
Only 4 of 7 Os managed to score, reflecting the poor team performance. Lil' Joe, the reigning Ophy holder, had 5 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists. Roster Guard put up 9 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals. However, the Ophy went to Mr. Smooth who had an out-of-character 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists. In addition, he hit 3 of 3 free throws putting his career percentage back over 50%.
