The Dawgs moved into within a game of the lead in the Robbie McIntosh Division with a tight 55-53 win over Lost Treasurez. (And yes, young people still use the letter "z" instead of "s". It's like it's 25 years ago and Tupac Shakur is still alive.) The Dawgs held a 32-26 lead at the half and held on for the win. In other games:
--Glass Monkeys 67, Frosty Hesson 56 - Lonnie Lee had a monster day for Frosty, pouring in 31 points, but it was not enough to overcome the 34-point output by Chance Strawderman of the Monkeys.
--Treway Squad 60, Icy Hots 59 - Treway Squad had four players in double figures as they hung on for an exciting 60-59 win over Icy Hots. The Squad is one of only three undefeated teams left in the league as we head into the final two weeks of the regular season.
--Really Big Team 51, DTC 50 - Yet another one-point game in a season full of them. Really Big team was led by Dominic Dicochea with 29 points.
As mentioned before, we will take the Sunday after Thanksgiving off; the entire league is off that day. Over the many years, we have tried to have games on that day, but it just didn't work out. A lot of people want to play on that day to work off some of that over-eating that they did. But other teams would have people who were still out of town for the holiday. All too often, it turned into a forfeit frenzy.
