The VI were looking for their 3rd straight title in the Town of Hempstead Summer League and they got off to a great start with two convincing wins... unfortunately Da Boyz then ended the VI 18 game winning streak and the VI dropped to 2-1!
After getting back to form, they captured the #1 seed in the playoffs yet again... rolling through the first two rounds, but got smoked by 20 in the Finals...
See the FULL SCHEDULE here!
Of course the VI will be wearing sharpest uniforms out there!!!
Tom Weber opened up the Spring Season with a couple of jump shots and the VI defense clamped down on Big Dad's in the opener... After opening an early lead, a well-balanced Village Idiot attack highlighted by some key 3-balls from Ty Springer left no room for a comeback as the Dads never pulled within 5 points and the VI sealed the deal from the free-throw line!
Game 2 started out with VI domination on both ends of the court, with the Idiots knocking down big shots throughout the first half and stifling "Our Name" on the defensive end to open up a 22 point half-time lead... the cruise control hit a few bumps in the road in the 2nd half, but, in the end, the Idiots moved to 2-0 with a 68-54 victory!
The VI got out to another comfortable lead against Chi-Chi Get the YaYo in the 3rd game of the Spring Season. The Idiots led by 10 at the break and looked solid in the beginning of the second half, but Chi Chi created fits for the Idiots' Defense crashing the boards and knocking down some big 3's down the stretch. Linc Isetta and Dan Knipscher drove to the bucket twice in the final minutes to stall Chi Chi's comeback, and key rebounds by Ed Caceres locked up the victory for the VI, who are now 3-0 on the season. Final Score 61-56!
Repeating what has become the norm this Spring Hoops season, the Village Idiots (3-0 going into game 4) charged hard out of the gate against Marolda Properties (also 3-0). To open up, consecutive 3-Pt field goals by Ty Springer, Linc Isetta and VI Rookie Chris Bocciolatt set Marolda back on their heels and the swarming VI Defense quickly made it obvious that this was not going to be a close game. After opening up a 28 point lead in the first half, the VI held onto a 45-22 advantage at the break and cruised to a 74-57 win and are now 4-0!
The Village Idiots Basketball team got off to a great start in the Winter Season of the Urban Professionals Indoor Basketball League... and a first round playoff win over "In Denial" moved the VI into the Semifinals against the top-seeded "Snipers from HCG" After opening an 11 point lead in the first half, the Idiots failed to put the nail in the coffin and allowed the Snipers to come back and take the game... the good news is Spring Season has begun!
The VI Hoops Squad make it look easy again as they cruised to a 72-54 victory over Holy Name in the Championship Game of the Town of Hempstead Summer League... Tim Byrnes led all scorers, slashing his way to 17 points... check out one of Byrnes' drives here... Dan Knipscher was firing away from behind the arc and totaled 15 points and Chris Harrison made some big defensive plays to compliment his 14 point performance... see two of Harrison's points courtesy of a nice dish from Matt Shiels here... as usual, an all around effort led the Idiots to their third title... check the final game stats here
