It’s Hot Outside but Sizzlin’ inside SARC for Thursday Night ASSC 3s Basketball!!

Wherever you were last Thursday night, we bet it didn’t compare to what was going on at SARC for ASSC 3s basketball!! Let’s break it down and check the scores and action!

 

FSU had a rough night, unable to post a Dub-yah in the Win Column. They first took on CP3 and O and made a game of it early. Matching shot for shot for most of the game, they needed some key baskets late to keep pace. CP3 and O got hot with some nifty screens and outside shooting that proved to be the difference. Final score, FXU 15, CP3 and O 20. In their second game, FSU looked tired and winded, only able to post 9 points against Haters Gonna Hate’s 20. Ouch!

 

On the flip side, FMSP played 2 tough games and came out on top in both of them. They had their hands full with Poodles but managed a skinny 20-18 win. In their next game, The Real Ultimate Warriors also proved to be a worthy opponent with an awesome defense. In the end, however, FMSP held on for the 18-15 win. Nice!

 

Shots! Shots! Shots! needed more shots, shots, shots for any kind of win, win, win! They were only able to post 8 points against the always tough Haters Gonna Hate. They seemed to find their groove and made some nice 3s against CP3 and O but fell just short in the end, 17-20. Uh-oh!

In the night’s upset, the always tough Super Sloths couldn’t seem to get anything to work…..offense, defense, passing….you name it! They went up against The Real Ultimate Warriors, who only had 3 players show up for the entire night. They played hard and got hot early. In the surprising upset, they took down Super Sloths 20-6! Wow! Poodles were also able to take advantage of Super Sloths struggles and take a close one, 20-16. Tough night for the Sloths!

After the games, Toss Pizzeria was the place to be if you were wearing an ASSC jersey! Kickball and BBall players all showed up to throw back some brewskies and throw down some challenges for next week. We’ll see you then!!

 

 

ASSC’s 3s Basketball at SARC on Tuesday Nights…..Did You Catch It?

If you drove by SARC on Tuesday night and wondered what all the shouting, cheering and yelling was all about…..it was none other than ASSC 3s Basketball! Here’s how it all went down:

 

Wish I was a little bit Taller was doing just that on Tuesday night! They had 2 hard fought games for the night but came up just shy of posting a Dub-Yah. Drunk Dribblers took them out first with a 20-16 win. Then Air Ballers barely notched them on a last second shot that found the bottom of the net as time ran out. Air Ballers 19, Wish I was a little bit Taller 18! Ouch!

Shiner Blocks is known for their defense and now we know why! They held both their opponents of the night to single digit totals while their offense was a scoring machine! Air Ballers could only manage 8 points while Drunk Dribblers notched only 7! Wow!!

In their first game of the night, Dream Team had a little trouble finding open shots and couldn’t keep up with Summertime Squad to take the 13-20 loss. They caught their second wind in their next game against BoozeHounds and managed an awesome 20-9 win with some stellar defense! Nice comeback!

Speaking of BoozeHounds, their night did not get much better when they faced off with Summertime Squad in their second game. They only managed 5 points up against Summertime Squad’s 20! Double ouch!!

When I Dip You Dip We Dunk also had a night to forget! They only managed single digit totals in both their games going up against some tough opponents. WTF Ref put it to them hard and heavy, then OFFENSIVE FOWL made it another lopsided victory scoring 20 before time even ran out. There’s always next week Dip and Dunkers!

With both teams coming off impressive wins, WTF Ref went up against OFFENSIVE FOWL to see who could go unbeaten for the night. WTF Ref held on to a slim lead throughout the game and pulled out the 18-15 victory. Nice!

Speaking of blowouts, Not One, Not Two, Not Three… had a couple of their own for the night! Can you say steamrolled?! First up Net-Swishaz only managed 8 points in their first game of the night while The Wampus Cats only managed 9! Now that is a defensive slaughter by Not One, Not Two, Not Three…!

Finally, Be Humble was also able to notch a couple of wins for the night, first going up against The Wampus Cats. They had just come off a humbling loss and had something to prove. Although they improved from their first game, The Wampus Cats still only managed 15 points to Be Humble’s 20. Next up, Net-Swishaz held on as long as they could before Be Humble took home the 20-15 victory. Great night Be Humble!!

After the games, it was off to Toss Pizzeria for some hot food and cold brews! With the season in full swing, it’s anybody’s race to the Championship!

Give-N-Go….In-N-Out….Coast-To-Coast….Too Many Hyphens!

Looking for some stellar 3s basketball action on Thursday nights? Head on over to SARC and check it out!

First up, The real Ultimate Warriors vs CP3 and O. Good close game between these two teams as they went point for point, rebound for rebound. Tough game to play but easy to cheer for! Both teams played social ball throughout the whole game but there had to be a winner and a “non-winner.” When the final whistle blew, CP3 and O sank 20 points and The real Ultimate Warriors 18. Great game!!

FSU had an up and down kind of night. They were flying high with some timely baskets in their first game, taking the 20-14 win over FMSP. They had their hands full in their second game in a closely fought battle with Super Sloths. FSU came out tough in the beginning but couldn’t hold on in the end. Final score, Super Sloths 20 and FSU 16. Oops!

Shots! Shots! Shots! had a similar night with 2 tough games that could have gone either way. They first faced off against the always tough Super Sloths. They took the early lead and it looked like another win for Super Sloths. Shots! Shots! Shots! came roaring back with some nifty defense and their shots began to fall. In the end, Shots! Shots! Shots! 20-16! Speaking of close games, Shots! Shots! Shots! went up against another powerhouse in FMSP. Shot for shot, they went back and forth. FMSP led late and barely held on for a 20-17 win! Nice!!

Poodles played hard, ran hard and sweated hard to eek out a win and barely miss out on another. CP3 and O had some nifty screens and some nice female shots to get on the board quickly. They took the win, 20-14. Poodles came back with a nice 20-16 win over Haters gonna hate to even things out for the night.

The real Ultimate Warriors (LIGHT PINK) (A) 13 AT Haters gonna hate (ROYAL BLUE) (H) 20
The real Ultimate Warriors (LIGHT PINK) (A) 18 AT CP3 and O (MAROON) (H) 20

The real Ultimate Warriors also had frustrating night….unable to notch a Dub-yah for the night.  Against Haters gonna hate, they couldn’t seem to get much going and left a few baskets out on the court. In the end, they went down 13-20. They did seem to catch a second wind and gave CP3 and O all they could handle. CP3 and O had to make a last second desperation shot, that found the bottom of the net, to steal the win. Final tally, 20-18 in favor of CP3 and O.

What a great night for basketball and for socializing, since there was a huge crowd headed over to Toss Pizzeria to keep the party going. With ASSC basketball and kickball teams both showing up, we definitely represented. Another awesome night in the books and we can’t wait to do it all again next week.

 

 

ASSC 3s Basketball……It’s Hot Outside….but Hotter Inside….what tha…..?

The basketball courts were smokin’ hot for Tuesday ASSC 3s Basketball at SARC! You could fry an egg on the hardwoods with some awesome play from Austin’s favorite 3s basketball teams. Let’s see how it all went down:

Game of the night goes to Wish I was a little bit Taller taking on Dream Team. Wish I was a little bit Taller was obviously the better of the 2 teams but anything can happen on any given Tuesday! Each team seemed to match the other shot for shot the entire game. Dream Team was down by one with seconds ticking off the clock. A veteran chick launched up a shot and a prayer to possibly steal the win…. wait for it…..she sank it with time running out!! Dream Team 20 and Wish I was a little bit Taller 19! Wowee…what a game!!

 

Net-Swishaz had an interesting night with some awesome highlights and some not so awesome low-lights. Just off their amazing earlier win, Dream Team couldn’t quite keep up and fell 16-18 to Net-Swishaz. Great game! In their second game, they took on Wish I was a little bit Taller. They only managed 10 points to Taller’s 20. Ouch!

OFFENSIVE FOWL couldn’t seem to find their rhythm in either of their games. Although close early in the game, Not One, Not Two, Not Three ran away with the 20-13 win. Next up, Be Humble who held them to only 6 points made quick work of OFFENSIVE FOWL. Tough night for the birds!

Next up, BoozeHounds also had a rough night, notching up 2 loses for the evening. First, Be Humble took them to the cleaners 20-8. Not One, Not Two, Not Three….also held them to only 10 points while posting up 20 of their own. Double ouch!!

 

On the other side of the coin, Shiner Blocks was on a roll with 2 dominating wins. They held both their opponents to 8 points each!! Now that’s some stellar defense!! While When I Dip You Dip We Dunk were one of those teams, they came back strong in their second game against The Wampus Cats. They were able to take the win at 20-15! Nice comeback!

Drunk Dribblers looked pretty sober in both their games pulling out wins of 20-17 in each contest. They took the first win off WTF Ref then posted their second win of the night against Summertime Squad. Awesome night!

Finally, Air Ballers certainly lived up to their name with a couple of lopsided losses to show for it. They only managed to score 5 points against Summertime Squad then posted the same number of points against WTF Ref. They didn’t let their losses dampen their spirit, however and definitely showed up for the fun! Great sportsmanship!

Who says you have to be on the floor to have fun…..there were tons of spectators who show up to cheer on their team and enjoy the “spirit of the stands.”

That spirit followed everyone over to Toss Pizzeria for the post game revelry….good food…..great beverages and continued sportsmanship! That’s how we roll at ASSC! See you all again next week!

 

 

ASSC 3’s Basketball Getting Tighter on Thursday Nights at SEMP!

Thursday night basketball at SEMP is getting tighter and tighter with so many teams so evenly matched. Let’s take a closer look at these games as teams start to gel:

 

Shots! Shots! Shots! scored some baskets, baskets, baskets….unfortunately, their first opponent scored more baskets, baskets, baskets! The Real Ultimate Warriors led for most of the game and added a couple of late female goals for icing on the proverbial cake. They took the 20-15 win. Shots! Shots! Shots! was just getting warmed up though. They were caught in a hard fought battle with Poodles and trading baskets for most of the game. They had a one point lead going into the final seconds of the game and managed some stingy defense to take the 20-19 win. Awesome!

Speaking of close games, FSU won a squeaker against Poodles, who was just coming off a heartbreaking loss. Again, both teams had timely shots and key steals to keep it close. In the end, FSU took the 20-17 win. Nice! In their second game, however, FSU looked winded and couldn’t seem to get on the board. The Real Ultimate Warriors scored early and often and made quick work against FSU for the 20-10 win.

FMSP had an interesting….and confusing night! In their first game, they creamed CP3 and O 20-8, then were dumbfounded when they could barely get on the board against Haters gonna hate. FMSP scored first and looked like they brought their momentum in from their first game to run away with their second. Haters gonna hate got hot with their shooting and some timely female shots that started racking up the points. In the end, Haters gonna hate 20, FMSP 9! Ouch!

Finally, Super Sloths game out of the gate strong for their first game then hit a wall in their second. Haters gonna hate was just coming off of an awesome game and were just getting warmed up. This was a great game with lots of possession changes and 3 pointers from outside bombs! Guys….girls….benches….everyone was scoring! Haters gonna hate had a chance to tie it up at the buzzer but the shot fell short. Score at buzzer: Super Sloths 20, Haters gonna hate 18! Fantastic game!! In their next game, Super Sloths couldn’t seem to keep their momentum going late. CP3 and O had an earlier defeat so were looking for redemption and managed to stay a couple of points ahead the entire game. In the end, CP3 and O 20, Super Sloths 15.

As always, Toss Pizzeria was the place to be for hot food and cold brews after the games! With the teams coming together mid season, it’s anybody’s guess who will come out on top for the Championship. Let’s do it all again next week!

Where Can You Score 1, 2 and 3 Points….All In The Same Game?! ASSC 3s Basketball!!

What a great game…everybody gets to play…..you can score all kinds of points from all over the court…..plus…..being a chick definitely has it’s advantages!! Let’s see how it all played out Thursday at SARC:

For FMSP, can you say Groundhog Day?! They managed to score 12 points in both their games while their opponents both scored 19 points to take the victories! What?! In their first game, they went up against Poodles, who proved to be tougher than their team name suggests! Poodles went out to an early lead and never looked back. As time ran out, FMSP 12 and Poodles 19. Next up, The Real Ultimate Warriors also scored 19 points while FMSP also scored 12 points. Note to teams…..it’s okay to score more than 12 or 19 points!

The purple jersy’d Super Sloths notched a couple of nice wins for the night. Their first game was hard fought where both teams held tight on their defenses and made some timely baskets to keep it close. At the buzzer, Super Sloths 20, The Real Ultimate Warriors 16! Great game! With momentum in their favor, Super Sloths took on Poodles, who were just coming from an earlier victory. The Poodles looked tired and winded and fell 12-20 to give Super Sloths their second win of the night!

Shots! Shots! Shots! couldn’t seem to make them drop! drop! drop! They had a nail biter against Haters gonna hate, with both teams poised to take the win. It literally came down to the last shot and Haters gonna hate took the layup right down the lane to win by 1! Awesome game! Next up for Shots! Shots! Shots! was CP3 and O. Their earlier, narrow defeat, seemed to linger and they lost any momentum they had. CP3 and O took it to them early and often taking the 20-8 win! Oops!

Finally, FSU had their hands full in their first game against CP3 and O. They were just coming off a dominant win and looked unstoppable. FSU fell behind early but took a well advised timeout to regroup. They must have all drunk the same punch because they came out like a different team! Screens, pick and rolls even an alley oop led them to a 20-17 victory! Great game! But….wait….they still had another game to play. They went up against Haters gonna hate, who were riding high from an earlier win. FSU had some miscommunication issues and were certainly winded from their earlier game. Haters took advantage of their momentum and took it to FSU 20-12! Ouch!

After the games, teams headed over to Toss Pizzeria for camaraderie, cold beers and more sportsmanship to spread around. This is how we do it at ASSC! Come join us next week!

Swoosh, Swoosher, Swooshiest! ASSC BBall on Tuesday Nights at SARC!!

What do you do on Tuesday nights? We play some awesome 3s BBall at SARC…..come check it out!

First up, Shiner Blocks took on WTF Ref in one of the closest and hard fought games of the night!  Lots of great offense and defense from both sides but, more importantly, these 2 teams kept it social the entire game! In the end, Shiner Blocks took the last shot and the win at 20-19! Nice!

With their momentum in high gear, Shiner Blocks next took on Be Humble and got out to a roaring lead. They never let up and took the decisive win 20-9 to go 2-0 for the night! Bring on the beer!

 

No worries, Be Humble came back strong in their next game winning a close one against Dream Team 20-17! Great turnaround! The same can’t be said for Dream Team in their next game of the night, going up against WTF Ref. They must have gotten the calls they needed, taking down Dream Team by 6 points for a 20-14 win!

 

When I Dip You Dip We Dunk struggled Tuesday night to post enough points for a win. They first fell to Not One, Not Two, Not Three…..11-20 then took another beating by Summertime Squad, losing out 10-20! Yikes!

 

Wish I was a little bit Taller also ran into some winners, looking for any kind of victory on the hardwoods. Not One, Not Two, Not Three….held them to only 8 points to their 20 but they fared a little bit better against Summertime Squad by managing 17 points. Wish I was a little bit Taller looked like they were finally hitting their groove but ran short of time as the seconds ticked off their second game. Oh well, let’s hope they can pick up where they left off next week!

 

Air Ballers had an interesting night, notching both a win and a loss. They first ran up against the powerful OFFENSIVE FOWL team and gave them a run for their money. They couldn’t convert late or penetrate a tough defense and fell just short, 16-20. They regrouped in their second game and had a nice come back against Net-Swishaz, taking the 20-15 win! Nicely done!

Net-Swishaz night went from bad to worse, only able to post 8 points to OFFENSIVE FOWL’S 20 points! Ouch!

The Wampus Cats also had an interesting night by blowing out their first opponent then falling to another strong team. They only allowed 4 points against BoozeHounds while scoring 20 easy points to take the dominant win. In their second game, they ran into Drunk Dribblers who seemed pretty sober on this night! Although close in the beginning, Drunk Dribblers made some key baskets late to take the 20-13 win.

Drunk Dribblers was not through for the night, showing BoozeHounds they had come to play and took no prisoners! They racked up 20 points while holding BoozeHounds to only 7 points! Dominating!

 

Whew….what a night at SARC! The fun and frivolity continued over to Toss Pizzeria for some tasty grub and frosty brews! ASSC happy hours are awesome and the games aren’t bad either! Let’s do them both again next week!

 

New Season, New Teams, New Sneakers….New 3s Basketball Excitement!!

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to the Summer ASSC 3s Basketball season at SARC!

We’ve got some new and old faces and some clever new team names, to kick off another exciting season of ASSC 3s basketball. Let’s take a look at what went down Tuesday night at SARC:

Be Humble had a nice opening night with a pair of victories to get things going. They had some strong offense and defense beating Not One, Not Two, Not Three 20-13. Next, they went up against a strong new contender, When I Dip You Dip We Dunk and had a battle on their hands. In the end, they won a close one 20-17.
When I Dip You Dip We Dunk turned right around and won a close one themselves against the veteran Dream Team 20-13. Nice comeback! Speaking of Dream Team, they continued to struggle with their defense losing another close one to Not One, Not Two, Not Three….16-20.

Offensive Fowl was a little slow in getting their offense in-line but squeaked out a low scoring win against The Wampus Cats 14-11. They picked up their game and their scoring to get a victory off BoozeHounds 20-13 in their second game.

Let’s talk about defense….let’s talk about Air Ballers. They were all over their opponents to keep them both under 10 points each game!! Wow! BoozeHounds could only muster up 5 points while Drunk Dribblers must have hit happy hour BEFORE the game, only able to put 9 points on the board. Ouch!

Drunk Dribblers must have sobered up before their second game, taking a hard fought win off Net-Swishaz 20-16! Nice comeback! Net-Swishaz continued their struggles when they fell to The Wampus Cats 11-20 in their second game.

WTF Ref is now 2-0 going into next week thanks to Wish I was a little bit Taller and Summertime Squad. They took both wins by 20-14 and 20-12. Nice opening night!

Finally, Shine Blocks had an up and down kind of night with a 20-10 win against Wish I was a little bit Taller but hit a wall in their second game. Their offense couldn’t seem to find the bottom of the net and they took the 10-20 loss.

After the season opener, teams headed over to Toss Pizzeria for some hot pizza and cold beers to share their wins and losses. New teams met old teams and new challenges were thrown down for next week. It’s going to be another exciting season on the hardwoods, so join us again next week!

 

Hot Outside….Cool Inside….. Hot Play….Cool Vibe!

It’s Thursday night at SARC and you thought all the heat was outside! Step inside to see Austin’s hottest 3s basketball in town! Here’s a rundown of week 1 of the summer season:

Super Sloths got off to a great start to the season with a pair of wins with both games coming down to the wire. In their first game, they took on FMSP in a nice, tight game. FMSP kept it tight but Super Sloths came out on top with a 20-17 win. Next up, Super Sloths took on Shots! Shots! Shots! in another close one. They seemed to match each other shot for shot but, in the end, Super Sloths made a couple of key baskets to take the 20-16 win. Nice night Super Sloths!!

Shots! Shots! Shots! was still looking for their first win going up against FSU. The game was close for the first couple of possessions but FSU ran way with the 20-10 win. Tough night Shots! FSU stayed the course and took on FMSP in their second game of the night. They continued their strong offense and stingy defense to take the win at 20-13. Nice!

Haters gonna hate had a tough night, but it wasn’t because of lack of effort. They fought hard in their opener with CP3 and O who couldn’t be stopped. When the final whistle blew, it was CP3 and O on top 20-13.

Haters gonna hate met up with an old rival in The real Ultimate Warriors in the night’s final game. These 2 teams battled it out to the end with Pink hitting a game winning shot to take it 20-18! Awesome! Lots of friendly trash talking between these 2 teams that even carried over to happy hour at Toss Pizzeria after the game. Every single team showed up at Toss for buckets of cold Bud Lights and even a few shots. Outstanding! The expectations are high for next week but we’ll be there….will you!

 

ASSC 3s Basketball Hoists Another Championship Banner!

Awesome, fun night at SARC, Thursday night basketball for this season’s 3s Championships. The stands were packed! Seemed as if every team brought friends and or family members to come watch them play in the play-off games. We had 4 of the toughest teams to play in the playoffs and they all showed some of the best sportsmanship all season!

Here are some of the preliminary results from other games leading up to the finals:

Rim Jobs had a consistent night against both their opponents but……by only scoring 18 points to their opponents’ 20, they came off on the losing end for both games! In their first game, Hoops There It Is took them to the limit and had a buzzer beater by one of their females to take the 20-18 victory. Speaking of 20 points, Hoopsters also tacked on some male and female shots to take out Rim Jobs 20-18. Can you say deja vue?

In an awesome, defensive game, Facebook Ballers barely edged CU Next Thursday for a 17-14 win.

In another exciting game, both Hoopsters and Hoops There It Is did NOT want to lose this game! They fought and scraped for every point, whether they were headed to the finals or not! In the end, only 2 points separated these teams and the last 1 standing was…..Hoops There Is Is! Great game and great season!

In the top bracket of the semi final action, Facebook Ballers took on RIP Charlie Murphy in what turned out to be a lopsided affair. Facebook Ballers ran into a power house defense and could only manage 8 points for the entire game! RIP Charlie Murphy took the 20-8 win!

In the other side of the draw, CU Next Thursday went up against Bad News Ballers with the winner advancing to the big show….the Championship game! This was a close game throughout with Bad News Ballers always managing to keep a couple of points ahead. In the end, CU Next Thursday couldn’t seem to close the gap and took the 12-20 defeat. Teammate Kristina went down with an injury and the entire team escorted her to the ER! Now that was spirited support!!

With some great play-off games, the Championship game was even better! The 2 teams that played, were truly the 2 teams that deserved it. If the winner was based off more the just the final score, however, the banner and bragging rights might have gone to Bad News Ballers. This team displayed good sportsmanship against a very tough team! They were out matched by both height and skill, but when it  came to heart, they were true champions! They managed to hold RIP Charlie Murphy to just 16 points as time ran out, to their 8 points. What an awesome season and tournament as everyone headed to Toss Pizzeria for some post game celebrations.

Lots of cold beer and hot pizza to celebrate another successful, and social season with ASSC! Check your schedules and see if you can join us for another great season…ASSC style!
