Intramural Basketball Heats Up At Wilson


BY GREG KOPETSKY, WEB FEATURES EDITOR

It’s a celebration of crossovers, showboating, and terrible shot selection. It’s March, ladies and gentlemen, and intramural basketball is in full swing at Wilson.

This month, 9 teams entered the tournament to compete for the intramural trophy and the bragging rights that come with it. Like every year, games have been played every Tuesday and Thursday in the main gym at STEP. The regular season began on March 3, and ended on March 24 after each team played every other team within its conference once.

On Thursday, March 25, the playoffs began, where teams were matched up by seeding. The day ended with the elimination of four teams: the Golden Browns, the Shrimp Boat Ballers, Mike and Boys, and Lob City.

With the championship game scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 2, the Running Rebels seem to be favorites to win it, having never lost a game this month. However, with the uptown ballers and Vanilla thunder coming off big wins, the title is still very much up for grabs.

Games are rowdy, a heck of a lot of fun, and only one dollar. So get in the spirit of March and get your fill of basketball madness.
