2 FOR SIXTY+ @ H.I.T.S.

SATTERFIELD & BARRETT GO FOR 60 PLUS IN 4th OF JULY WEEKEND CLASSIC at Hoops in the sun…

Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks can’t compare to the spectacle displayed Saturday afternoon in a monumental hoops in the sun classic between PR Pride/K1X and Hoop Street.

A week prior to this game, the infamous “The Cab Driver” broke “Serious Satellite” Kenny Satterfield’s scoring record at “The Beach” with 65 points. A first guess would indicate that Satterfield didn’t take the news very well and looked to set things straight quickly…

PR Pride/K1X (incl. K-Sat & L.A. Clipper Andre Barret), after losing in a shootout last week against Bingo’s All-Stars, took the indoor-floor vs. Hoop Street. Both teams came in looking for their first victory of the season and those who stayed in the city for the holiday weekend were rewarded with an all-time classic. it quickly became apparent that this would be a high scoring affair with both teams tied at 44 at the end of the first quarter. PR Pride/K1X led Hoop Street 88-73 at halftime (!!) with Satterfield posting up 36 points while Barrett had 29. Satterfield took the back seat to his teammate in the third quarter letting Barrett go to work. But all hell broke loose in the fourth as both players hit shot after shot after shot. Layups, NBA three-pointers and Joe Dumars-like in-your-face buckets were handed out like business cards. Obviously all players and the buzzing crowd realized they were witnessing history in the making.

With less than a minute remaining, Satterfield (65 points) hit a three point bomb that sent the crowd into a frenzy giving him 68 points for the game and breaking “The Cab Driver’s” 7 day-old scoring record. Barrett, who had 63 points with two seconds remaining, hit a three point shot from the corner as time expired giving him 66 points for the game and capping the afternoon off with an historical 178-165 victory over Hoop Street.

But there were more records broken besides Satellites new scoring milestone (68 pts): PR Pride/K1X scored the most points by a team in a game (178), both teams combined for the most total points (353), PR Pride/K1X scored the most points by a team in a half (88), Satterfield broke the record for most three-point shots made by a player in a game (11) and PR Pride/K1X now owns the record for the most three-point shots made by a team in a game (23). Not bad for a days work!

H.i.t.s. WEEK ONE

TRAIN WRECK: HARDY NETS HOME 54 vs MONEY TRAIN

Day one was capped off with a battle between the two Co-MVP’s of the 2007 season, Dwight Hardy and “Serious Satellite” Kenny Satterfield. Dwight Hardy of R2K led his team to victory over the notorious Money Train, 121-117 Saturday afternoon. With the Trains’ backcourt of “Antifreeze” Antawn Dobie & “Serious Satellite” Kenny Satterfield, it wasn’t enough to uplift a victory due to Hardy’s 54 point performance. Hardy’s 54 points is the most scored by a player in an opening season game, as well as breaking Satterfield’s record of most points scored by a player in a half, with 37 points coming in the second half. Money Train kept it close behind Satterfield’s 38 points & 26 points coming from the “The Undertaker” Corey Underwood, but when it came crunch time, Dwight Hardy was there to stop the Money Train dead in its tracks and let everyone know that he’s a problem. Money Train found that out up close and personal.

URSPRING ACADEMY # 1

the urspring academy is to high school basketball in germany, what the celtics were to the nba during the sixties: the cream of the crop. coach ralph junge’s under-19 squad won back-2-back titles (2007 & 2008) in the coveted nbbl competition by defeating alba berlin 84:76 in front of a frenzied crowd in langen last weekend. this closes another extremely successful season for junge & czerny, who already left a lasting impression internationally, by beating out armani jeans milano and bergamo for the ‘chip in italy earlier this year. the basketball academy has brought forward a number of stellar alumnis (like nikolai simon and ncaa ballers jermaine raffington, Vince Polakovic & lucca staiger), and looks to build on this tradition with young guns like go-getter maurice stuckey, nbbl rookie of the year kevin bright (see him at the nba without borders camp in istanbul next week), nbbl mvp chris standhardinger, the general frank wiesler etc. etc.

on a personal note, k1x is extremely proud to see team urspring build up a most unique winning tradition in k1x uniforms! y’all even look better than the competition. but guys, you forgot to chop down those victory nets in the background!?
