Dyckman League Wk. 4: Iona’s Washington Drops 29

(INWOOD, NEW YORK CITY) – Week Three at Dyckman is officially in the books and while it is still early, we are starting to see who will be the “contenders” and who will be the “pretenders” this season.

 

Monday night we saw Shane Rector (Utah State ’17) carry Team Kemba to their first victory of the season over Final Four, 81-60. Rector was lights out from behind the arc, hitting 5 three’s in total.

 

In the nightcap, we saw Showstoppers/TMT take down whom many considered the best team in Dyckman this season (at least on paper) Team Fancy, 71-63. As if they weren’t already stacked, Fancy added Scott Machado (Iona ’12) to the squad but Showstoppers weren’t impressed and gave them all they could handle. Their bench was the deciding factor in this game with Devin Brooks (Creighton ’15) and Basil Harley notching 15 points apiece in the victory.

 

Tuesday we saw The Label earn their first victory of season with a 85-70 win over Strictly Business who is now 0-2 on the year. High school phenom Markquis Nowell led the way with 15 points as he battled fellow Harlem guard Jesse Sapp (’09).

 

We finished the night with Brooklyn Stompers vs. Taylor Made, which was the first game to go into overtime in the young season. BK Stompers came out on top 88-82, thanks to a dominating performance by Kinu Rochford (FDU ’13), who had 28 points and 14 rebounds. Last year’s scoring champion Stanley Cespedes put up 31 in the losing effort.

 

Wednesday night we saw Ave Life rout last year’s runner-ups Rodney Park, 64-43. Jordan Washington (Iona ’17) was an absolute beast in the paint, dropping a game-high 29 points in the process.

 

Defending champions Skull Gang also had a rough night, falling to Heavy Reign 50-46 despite being the better team on paper. Heavy Reign gutted out the victory with a complete team effort, Edis Dervisevic (Long Beach State ’12) led them with 15 points.

 

Friday night Team 914 made their season debut and it was not pretty. The new look squad saw their best player from last year, Antoine Mason, on the opposing sideline with Team Jimmy Jazz. Kidani Brutus (Manhattan College ’12) was stroking it from three-point land, hitting 5 of his 7 attempts in the 67-48 victory.

 

Lastly, Dominican Power also fell short in their season debut, losing 57-53 to Black Ink. On paper it wasn’t even a contest, but that’s why we play the games. Corey Chandler (William Paterson ’12) went off for a game-high 18 points, leading Black Ink to their first victory of the season.
