Hoop Dreams

A week before the Big Dance,  we got to see two action-packed games during the BBBL (Baby Boomers Basketball League) Final Four.

The league is going strong after 15 years, and now includes about dozen teams.

We asked one of the players after the first semi-final game, which went down to the final possession (his team was favored), Why didn’t you guys pull that one out?

“Sometimes it just wasn’t meant to be,” he said.  “That’s why they call it March Madness.”

This weekend’s Finals showcases team Tighten Up with Bernard Blunt (formerly of St. Joseph’s–PA) versus  B&B Lounge with (former SU point guard) Lazarus Sims.
