Dyckman League Wk 5: UTMs Kedar Edwards Drops 29

(INWOOD, NEW YORK CITY) – After a week off due to the 4th July holiday and bad weather, Dyckman was back in action for Week 5.


Monday night, Team Kemba set the tone for the week after a convincing 81-63 win over Blank Ink. They added former Tennessee Volunteer to the squad, Kevin Punter Jr. (Tennessee ’16) and he scored 15 points in his season debut. While Punter played well, it was teammate Rickey McGill who had the hot hand. The Iona guard scored a game-high 22 points including 5 three-pointers.


Taylor Made followed that game up with a 71-57 victory over The Label. Dyckman’s current leading scorer, Andre Armstrong (Coppin State ’12) took a backseat this game as his teammate, “Day Day” as was written in the scorer’s book, went off for a Dyckman season-high 40 points. Mostly high-flying dunks and 11 free throws, The Label could not find an answer for “Day Day.”


Tuesday night, Dyckman headed indoors for the first time this season, and activated at their rain site. The gym was the perfect place for Team Fancy as their squad is made up of all professional basketball players. With Malcolm Grant (Miami ’12) and D’Angello Harrison as new additions this week, they defeated Ave Life 90-70. Grant (17 points) and Harrison (16 points) combined for a third of the team’s points. Joel “Air Jamaica” Wright led the way with a game-high 22 points, 18 coming in the second half. Ave Life was competitive for most of the game and their new addition Vincent Council (Providence ’13) played well scoring 20 points.


In the nightcap, BK Stompers defeated Strictly Business, 74-61. Big man AJ West (Nevada ’15) was dominant on both ends of the floor for BK Stompers, scoring a game-high 20 points and blocking a game-high 7 shots. Teammate Bryce Jones (Murray State ’17) chipped in with 15 points including 3 three-pointers. The lone bright spot for Strictly Business was guard Jessie Sapp who hit 5 three-pointers, finishing with 15 points.


Wednesday night we were indoors again. Rodney Park started things off with a 61-47 victory over Team 914. Kedar Edwards (UT-Martin ’17) was the guy for Rodney Park this game, finishing with a game-high 28 points. In the first half, Edwards and Miguel “Miles High” Millien (Idaho ’09) combined for 32 of the team’s 34 points. Millien would go on to finish the game with 18 points.


The main event of the night was certainly that, as Heavy Reign took on Showstoppers/TMT. Heavy Reign called in some reinforcements and suited up Los Angeles Clippers’ forward Montrezl Harrell. Harrell not only led the team in scoring with19 points, but also made the play of the game as he posterized a defender. On said play, Steven “Abby” Ruple was leading the fastbreak and dropped off a bounce-pass alley-oop to the trailing Harrell, the defender went for it and Harrell converted the dunk and caught an and-1. Pandemonium ensued.
