NOTE: IF YOUR TIPOFF BELOW
IS BLANK OR SAYS “TBD”, THAT MEANS IT IS STILL SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
YOU SHOULD NOT BE ASSUMING YOUR TIPOFF IS ANY PARTICULAR TIME UNLESS THERE IS ACTUALLY A TIME STATED.

purple matchup = one or both of the teams has a doubleheader
green matchup = one or both of the teams has player(s) on another team
THU 5/7 (11:45AM) — I’ve already been in contact with all captains in SF and OAK about the schedule, and the schedule is listed below and final. In SJ, you have the mini-final-four in the Losers Bracket and the one Winners Bracket game.
WED 5/6 (11:00AM) — Been a crazy last two days, with towing my car from SJ to SF, Steph MVP announcement, our t-shirt/hoodie pre-sale with Savs, and the Warriors loss in Game 2 — Mike Conley hat tip, what a baller! Thank goodness Steve Kerr gave the team a much-needed day off. Currently updating final scores from this past Sun 5/3 and then will update the brackets.
This Sun 5/10 is Mother’s Day, but we were planning to forge ahead and get these playoffs done asap before Memorial Day Weekend. If there are any major issues with that, have your captain text me. I’ll be in touch with all captains, anyways, about the summer season coming up, soon.
THU 4/30 (2:15PM) — Schedule for this Sun 5/3 is now done. See playoff brackets to see how your remaining bracket plays out.
THU 4/30 (12:00PM) — Draft is up! Just finalizing the last few teams. Check the bye list in red at the bottom, necessitated in SF and OAK by various difficulties with scheduling, all discussed already with captains. There are some gaps at ISAH and BCRC. Those will be fleshed out soon as we determine if there are “friendship” games between already-elimianted teams.
THU 4/30 (2:15AM) — Still haven’t heard back from all the captains, so I’ll try again in the morning. Also I might be able to fill in some voids with “friendship” games between teams that were double-eliminated or just eliminated. I’ll be texting a lot of teams to see if they want to fill in, although they’ll likely need to bring the $35 game fee PLUS a $20 gym fee — I don’t make any money off those games; those are just to defray ref+scorekeeper+gym costs since those are above and beyond regular season as well as playoffs.
WED 4/29 (6:00PM) — Playoff brackets have been updated and the scheduling for this Sun 5/3 has begun, albeit fraught with various difficulties in SF, OAK, and less so in SJ. So it will take some time for all the variables to settle, but it’s very likely I’ve already been in contact with your captain as most of the games are affected by special requests.
FRI 4/24 (7:00AM) — Sorry for the delay on BCRC (and STCC). We were waiting on the exact timeframe of availability from Franchize last night, then that amazing game happened, so I wasn’t able to update the schedule until now. Everyone’s still in their timeframes even after adding the missing Winners Bracket game (Franchize vs Stephen’s Curry). Stephen’s Curry? Hmmmm, maybe that was good luck!
THU 4/23 (5:00PM) — After further examination, the Steph vs Franchize game will be inserted at either 130p or 230p. BCRC will still start at 930a as you can see stacked up below. Dragon vs Mirror will thus be pushed back to 230p, pending approval from Dragon (Mirror has approved). So all of this will be updated probably by late tonight, but you can estimate your tipoff in OAK if you’re one of the first five games… (4:45PM) — Looks like I may have inadvertently left off the Steph’s vs Franchize game (see brackets) from the OAK schedule. Therefore, the BCRC schedule has been put on ice (no tipoffs) as I try to squeeze that one in. I’m gonna be busy all night so this will have to wait until late tonight — thought I had it all done. Oh well. *sigh*
THU 4/23 (3:45PM) — Tipoffs are posted, because rather than wait any longer for Benchwarmers, I went ahead and postponed some games as mentioned before, creating a situation where there would be no back-to-back doubleheader in OAK (or no doubleheader, period).
The only remaining issue is what time we will start STCC. Looks like 330p with ARYC’s last tip being 145p, but still waiting to hear back from the gym director… (3:30PM) — Forgot to mention, still waiting on Benchwarmers captain reply on latest tipoff (130p), so there’s that.
THU 4/23 (3:15PM) — We’re close to being done, but there are still a couple of issues that I need to let settle. The updated draft version below should have the last game at BCRC listed in the Comments as “postpone?” If it does not show this, come back to this page in about 30 minutes to let it refresh the Google Spreadsheet update…
- In SJ, waiting on confirmation of only two hours needed at STCC. The end of the ARYC set, which will probably start at the same time as the last two Sundays, will flow right into the last two slots at STCC, i.e., we’ll move the entire operation from one gym to the next.
- In OAK, first of all AHSM is unavailable despite previously announcing it was available. We will postpone the Winners Bracket of OAK-DL Undrafted vs Basic Addition. At first, this was a tipoff timeframe issue, but then I remembered that there are a few players on Basic that haven’t paid their roster spot yet. Having their next game (see Playoff Brackets) on 5/3 should give them enough time to either pay or explain their situation to me, on an individual basis. If I don’t hear from them at all, then I reserve the right for an auto-forfeit. Unfortunately, an auto-forfeit only hurts the players on the team that owned up to their spots — it’s unfair, but there is a lesson in there: don’t pickup teammates who cannot hold up their end the bargain, otherwise the whole ship sinks.
Also note that the postponement of Undrafted vs Basic Addition also results in the postponement of the 2nd game of the mini-final-four in their Losers Bracket, which is indicated by the aforementioned “postpone?” comment in the Comments column of the last BCRC game.
- In SF, we will postpone the Winners Bracket of SF-DL/Gold, SF-DL/Silver, and SF-NC due to rather difficult timeframe issues. Each one of those cases, I believe I have discussed with each captain. If you have any questions on those, please have your captain contact me asap for an explanation. It all boils down to team availability and me trying to be as fair as possible with having non-depleted rosters for the “Final Three” in each bracket.
So, still a little bit of waiting to do. Hopefully some of the above iron themselves out by 5pm tonight.
THU 4/23 (12:45PM) — MDLS is not available for that one game, so we do have some issues there. Hoping for TYIM as a backup… (12:30PM) — I might still juggle around the SJ schedule at ARYC/STCC, but most of the teams are available for most of the times, anyways. Stay tuned… (12:15PM) — Made some minor updates. Added list of bye teams at bottom in red. Here are the probable gym start times: ISAH late morning, MDLS midday, AHSM morning, BCRC evening, ARYC mid-morning, STCC mid-afternoon. Still waiting on confirmations for MDLS and AHSM. Not sure what to do if we don’t get MDLS. If we don’t get AHSM, move all those to BCRC… (8:45AM) — Playoff brackets updated and draft for Sun 4/26 posted. Still working on a few things. Hope to get it done by 5p today.
THU 4/16 (11:30PM) — Forgot to mention that #7 Basic and #3 Sqad in the OAK-DL have byes due to that side of the bracket going faster than the #1’s side (see Playoff Bracket page, link is below this paragraph)… (10:15PM) — Made one last change which swapped the 6p/7p timeslots at ISAH. All captains involved have been informed. Final version below… (7:15PM) — Tipoffs have finally been posted… (6:30PM) — Almost done with the scheduling. Should be done by 8pm tonight… (12:00PM) — Draft is up. Still waiting for a couple things to settle, thus, there’s no tipoffs listed yet… (10:15AM) — Made the executive decision to keep SF-NC Losers Bracket the way it is, with the diversity of scheduling. That pushes everything back. So there won’t be a mini-final-four. See bracket. Same thing with SF-DL/Silver. This means the survivor of the Winners Bracket will have to take a bye next week. Sorry!… (9:00AM) — Currently going through all the responses I got last night. Also, might need to re-match SF-NC because all of the teams in the Losers Bracket have strict timeframes. Got thrown one wrench from left field. So anyways, I think I’ll need all day to finish up everything.
WED 4/15 (4:15PM) — Still waiting for some responses back from teams on availability to go outside timeframe. This happens a lot when there’s a lot of Losers Bracket teams to eliminate. So anyways, just remember that all the matchups can be seen on the Playoff Brackets page (link below)… (4:00PM) — Friendly reminder to SJ-TA teams: top four teams get a first-round bye.
WED 4/15 (2:15PM) — Currently doing the first draft of the schedule. Here are the submitted special requests (official link is at the bottom of the right-hand panel) for this Sun 4/19, since the spreadsheet is overflowed at the moment — hopefully will be corrected soon…
SF Warriors DL MYee sf-dl 4/19 9a 2p
RNS sf-ta 4/19 4p 9p
XiaYu sf-ta 4/19 7p 9p
SJ Gunners sj-ta 4/19 12p 3p
TUE 4/14 (6:45PM) — Twelve-team SJ-TA bracket (just one division in SJ) is now up on the Playoff Brackets page (see link below). The final standings and rankings are listed on the SJ tab in the schedule sheet below. An explanation of the SJ-TA bracket will now be written up on the Playoff Brackets page. Next up: drafting a schedule for this Sun 4/19 based on all updated brackets.
MON 4/13 (4:15PM) — Just updated the brackets. However, I have not filled out the SJ 12-team playoff bracket yet. Click on the Playoff Bracket link below for the info on SF and OAK.
Sun 4/12 (bye 4/5 for Easter)
THU 4/8 (2:00PM) — Apparently, not enough of you whom I gave a private invitation over the last 24 hours, want to meet and greet Jim Barnett, or at least are motivated enough to fill up the available spots, so I’m opening it up to everyone.
There are only 24 3-Point Shootout spaces available, so it’s first-come-first-served. You can still meet JB even if you don’t want to shoot — just request a Guest Pass. The event is “free”, but since I’m paying for the gym time out of my own pocket, I’m requesting a $5 donation at the door.
There will be some giveaways at the event, too. I myself could spend a day talking to Jim about hoops, but if you don’t think JB is worth the drive or the donation, no offense taken!
THU 4/8 (7:15AM) — SF tipoffs are now up as well. WED 4/8 (10:45AM) — OAK and SJ tipoffs are now up. SF is nearly done, just waiting on a few confirmations from staff.
TUE 4/7 (1:45PM) — In SJ, I’m 99% going with the 4 games that are listed in SJ. For various reasons which I will discuss with in detail with each captain, BBOF (7 players), 408DGG (short on payments) and Bay Kingz (really short on payments) will not finish the regular season with 6 games played. We will start SJ playoffs on 4/19 and hopefully 408 and BayK will be caught up by then. If not, we will proceed without them in “THEE MASSIVE” 12-team SJ playoff bracket, which you can view on the Playoff Brackets page. There’s also a mock SJ playoff schedule below as one of the tabs (scroll all the way down or hit the jump links at the bottom of the last post).
As for SF and OAK, I’m letting those schedules marinate. I don’t foresee any wrenches thrown in from left field on those.
TUE 4/7 (10:00AM) — Very rough first draft of the schedule for this Sun 4/12 is now online, scroll down or hit the jump link. I’m still going to do a detailed write-up of the brackets on the Playoff Brackets page, but here is a summary, city-by-city:
- SF — First off, you’ll notice a small anomaly currently labelled, “playoffs1: SoleLe/TeamU then Loser vs Cleatonkees”. I will explain that one later, here. There’s another announcement to be made shortly at MDLS as well, so stay tuned.
- OAK — Nothing out of the ordinary to report here, although you can see that there are plenty of teams with a bye, due to various reasons to be explained on the brackets page. BCRC will open in the early afternoon.
- SJ — We will only go with 4 games at ARYC this Sun 4/12. The main reason is that I’m fed up with the CCCM people, who didn’t refund me the $500 cleaning deposit from our non-use of the gym on 3/29, until I asked for it yesterday. I had to pay off my credit card balance yesterday as well, so basically I’m “out” $500 until the next credit card bill when I get it back. Assholes! So we’re sticking with just the 4 timeslots available at ARYC: 11,12,1,2. That means some teams will get a bye. I will be deciding on whom, shortly.
So, I don’t want to go back to CCCM for awhile and that’s my plan for Sun 4/19 as well. That being said, teams like Gunners and Hit Squad will have had two byes in a row. Therefore, I’ll figure something out where they can maybe have an “extra” game (against each other, idk?) on Sun 4/19. We’ll cross that bridge next week. Meanwhile, I’ll have to build out the probably playoff structure so I can estimate our needs at other gyms on Sun 4/26 and 5/3 for the first two rounds of playoffs. Hopefully we can go back to Bascom or something (?).
MON 4/6 (10:30AM) — My plan for the rest of the day: draft out this Sun 4/12 based on the brackets/timeframes/requests, as well as SJ matchups, because I need to figure out the upcoming gym schedules; then explain the brackets… MON 4/6 (10:15AM) — First revision of the playoff brackets has now been posted. Click on the Playoff Brackets link below (below the one for “Jump down to top of schedule”).
MON 4/6 (6:45AM) — Been sick for a good majority of last week, so I’m now catching up on all the playoff bracketing from Sun 3/29 (no games occurred on Sun 4/5 due to Easter). That will be the next update. The playoff brackets, which will include dates of future matchups, will show you the roadmap of the remainder of the season schedule, barring unforeseen circumstances such as gym issues or teams asking for byes.
FRI 3/27 (6:45AM) — Tipoffs are good to go. Any questions, have your captain text me… THU 3/26 (11:00PM) — Almost done! The latest draft is now below, scroll down or hit the jump link. Sorry for the delay. Been a rough day. I think I had an ulcer tbh (3-4 hours of lost time and in pain) — half of that due to all the Dream League haters out there lol. I’m okay now, though. Still working through the wee hours of the night double-checking everything and getting refs and scorekeepers lined up.
THU 3/26 (4:15PM) — Getting notified that JS23 wants to change their timeframe to 9a-2p has caused a domino effect. In fact, the brackets as-is weren’t going to work. Look at Benchwarmers 9a-12p timeframe. Therefore, OAK schedule needs to be revamped. I’ve taken those games off-line.
THU 3/26 (11:15AM) — Correction. AYRC can’t be opened til late morning so there will be some rework.
THU 3/26 (7:45AM) — Draft version of the schedule for this Sun 3/29 is up, scroll down. You can see the list of teams with a bye in red at the bottom. I hope to finalize soon. Any questions about the playoff matchups or seeds, please have your captain text me asap. Here are probable gym opening times:
- ISAH: early morning
- BCRC: morning
- ARYC: early morning
WED 3/25 (4:45PM) — Two versions of upcoming 3/29 and 4/12 SJ matchups are now up. I’ll put that on the backburner now and work on OAK brackets that Peter has already assisted on. Then we’ll start scheduling all the first-round playoff matchups. Here are the gyms in play…
- SF: ISAH and MDLS
- OAK: BCRC and maybe an early one at AHSM
- SJ: AYRC, no restrictions on start or end time
WED 3/25 (11:45AM) — In SJ, I’ve added next two matchups thru Sun 4/12 (Sun 4/5 is a bye due to Easter), but I’d like to squeeze as many games as possible at AYRC this Sun 3/29 because, quite frankly, I don’t like dealing with CCCM’s gym directors. So to entice teams to do so, I’m offering to pay for scorekeeper fees if you play on Sun 3/29 — caveat: any team playing Bay Kings or 408 Da Go Gettas, who both have a bye this Sun 3/29, are mathematically unable to take advantage of this offer (also Regulators vs Thunder must occur on 4/12 because both are already playing DHs on 3/29).
WED 3/25 (11:30AM) — Quick update of where we are at. There are some “bogeys” in the way, such as teams in SF or OAK that have asked for byes even though we are about to start playoffs, so there’s a lot of work to be ironed out in the next 48 hours…
- SF — Bracketing is done. You can see this on the SF tab.
- OAK — Bracketing almost done. Might have a game or two at AHSM again, but mostly at BCRC.
- SJ — Still in regular season. We are back at ARYC for this Sun 3/29 and will try to give as many teams that can do makeup doubleheaders as we can.
THU 3/19 (10:45PM) — Finally put the SF tipoffs to bed!… (10:15PM) — Almost done with SF tipoffs as you can see below. Need a couple more look-overs… (9:45PM) — Forgot to mention that I swapped the 630p/730p games at BCRC in OAK. Running Rebels needed to be in that 630p slot… (9:30PM) — Good news for SF. I’m able to get TIYM as a backup gym. Working on finalizing things now… (6:45PM) — Still waiting on responses from teams for both the late OAK and midday SF issues (SJ is ready to roll). Gonna go rest now as we await those reponses; been feeling under the weather. Hope to have an update by 9pm, let’s say… (5:45PM) — Got a problem with the OAK schedule, so I’ve taken it offline. Only involves the late games, so don’t worry too much (unless you’re a late game)… (5:30PM) — Still working on that beast of an SF schedule below, and I’ve decided to solidify the OAK and SJ tipoffs. The SJ tipoffs were tweaked slightly when TSA wanted a later game, so I tried to limit the disruption and moved them to 2pm and shifted what was originally at 2pm to 1pm (Bad News vs SJ Hibachi).
Scroll down a ton or hit the jump link, or maybe read some of the previous scheduling paragraphs below these jump links…
THU 3/19 (1:30PM) — OAK and SJ tipoffs are pretty much done, but let’s let it marinate a few hours. For OAK we will probably open up BCRC at 930am and so hopefully the 30-minute shift to find a compromise in the timeframes of the matchups works okay for everyone there. In SJ, CCCM opens at the usual time. So you can extrapolate the chronology from there. In SF, I’m waiting to see if certain teams can play at certain hours because if not, then we won’t have the matchups that I’d like to see. So in SF we’re at a bit of an impasse until more information comes in.
Btw in OAK, AHSM seemed to be a huge hit as a venue, but unfortunately it will not be available until 4/19. Ah well! In SJ, we will be at CCCM another two weeks, then we’ll see. I haven’t been pleased with the people that run that place. They like to nickel and dime charges here and there. My wish is to go back to AYRC where the floor is not all that great, but the people are (that goes such a long way in my book), but it may not be available for quite some time.
WED 3/18 (2:00PM) — I’ve done the SJ and OAK matchups. The SF matchups are almost done and pending schedule availability for certain matchups by certain teams. I hope to finish that up by late tonight and then have the draft of the schedule up tomorrow morning, then finalize tipoffs by tomorrow afternoon.
WED 3/18 (11:15AM) — My OAK staff will be able to help out with the rankings later today, so I’m gonna update the +/-, then start working on the schedules for SJ and SF for this Sun 3/22, since I did the rankings for those already.
WED 3/18 (11:00AM) — Made a tweak to the SF bracket stratifications. Keep in mind, if you’re not in the top (“The Association”, or TA), where the best should get rewarded — i.e., being a #1 seed of an entire city should come with some advantages — then I don’t feel it’s right to force a team to play a doubleheader when it’s not in Losers Bracket yet. That’s why you see some brackets below have teams probably taking a first-round bye.
SF-TA — 8 teams, winner of #8 and #9 likely to have dh 1st round
SF-DL/Gold — 5 teams, teams other than #5 vs #4 likely to get 1st round bye
We Goofy — I feel like they don’t have height/athleticism for SF-TA
Splash City — only one player over 6’0″
SF Homenetmen Fire
Team USA — big guys were missing in 2 losses this past 3/15
SF-DL/Silver — 5 teams: #1 likely to get 1st round bye
Flight Club Cobras
SF-DL/Bronze — 8 teams
Stache Brothers — says top player Edmund Ho is out with injury, moved down from SF-DL/S
Pump Fake Travel
All Show No Go
SF-NC — 6 teams: #1 and #2 seed might have a bye 1st round, or give DH to #5, #6
Chongqing Fly Dragon
SF Free Agents A
TUE 3/17 (4:15PM) — Btw as far as payments go, if you paid full price at the beginning, thank you and I’ll catch up soon. Not worried about those teams. The ones that have been paying one by one, those are the ones that routinely run into trouble because it’s hard to keep up with your most delinquent guys. That’s where I come in. I will be contacting captains to find out about the players that haven’t come up with their spots yet. It is very important that I talk directly with them, as I wrote before below the last SF playoff post.
TUE 3/17 (4:15PM) — Slight mods made below with Silver and Bronze… (4:00PM) — Because I see the SF teams every week, I went ahead and came up with a first draft of the playoff bracket stratifications. Just had to scratch that itch, even though catching up on payments is an urgent to-do.
Playoff stratification is supposed to happen next week, as Sun 3/29 (not this Sun 3/22) is the first week of double-elimination playoffs. Here’s what I came up with. If you have any objections, please have your captain text me and I can explain my reasoning for putting you in that bracket — of course, things can change between now and next week…
TUE 3/17 (2:15PM) — I will be attempting to catch up on all the payments today. If you know that your team is behind on payments, please have your captain text me so that we can discuss it. I think you all know that, over the years, I’ve become a reasonable person — some might say “generous” — when it comes to these things. I’ve helped out countless ballers out there who, for whatever hardship or specific circumstance, were unable to pay this or that. By the same token, thanks to those out there who have stepped up honorably and taken care of their financial responsibilities to Dream League. Thanks as well to having patience as I deal with the issues that need our attention.
Also, thanks to those of you who have reached out to try and help the stats process. I will get to you after the above task is complete. Please bear in mind, the issues are with available time and resources — certainly not due to laziness — so if we are able to work together, I’m sure we will achieve our common goals. Talk to you in the near future about that!
MON 3/16 (2:30AM) — Trying something new here. Thought I would give my short thoughts to each of the results below. As they say, “better than nuthin'”. Any thoughts, have your captain text me and I can make small adjustments here and there. “The more you know”…
sf-nc/dl : Chongqing Fly Dragon at Frisco Hawks – Frisco 68-56 … Gabe Ross is unstoppable at this level. Be interesting to see how he would do in higher comp.
sf-ta : RNS at Xia Yu – XiaYu 76-61 … Both teams depleted. RNS not having Tyrone Dickerson is a bigger loss than any of Xia Yu’s.
sf-nc : Aubergine at SF Free Agents A – SFFAA 46-43 … Nice rematch of before. Aubergine apparently played better this time. Good improvement game for them.
sf-dl : Pump Fake Travel at Stache Brothers – Stache 46-41 … Didn’t see this one.
sf-nc : Disgustingly Modest at Illuminati – Illumi 45-29 … Didn’t see this one.
sf-ta : Splash City at Wet Boys – WetBoy 45-39 … Didn’t see this one, but Splash City was on 2nd of dh. I’ve yet to see Wet Boys this season.
sf-dl : Lob City at All Lin – LobCit 43-38 … All Lin definitely not “NC” considering the teams that a truly NC this season.
sf-dl : Flight Club Cobras at Sole Legit – SoleLe 71-64(o) … Dez Breaux buzzer-beater sent this into OT. See our Instagram post!
sf-dl : Kuyabruddaz at All Show No Go – Kuyab 47-45 … Glad to see Kuyab finally win one. Perhaps their big man is finally settling in.
sf-ta : LetsGoWarriors.com at Bus Drivers – BusDri 50-37 … LetsGo didn’t have Jon Hall, who is the whole team.
sf-ta : We Goofy at BallsOut – BallsO 57-50 … Brent Crews was the difference for BallsOut. Can he make every game though?
sf-ta : SF Homenetmen Fire at CoolGuys – CoolG 49-28 … SFHF probably belongs in DL. Only 28 points.
sf-dl : SF Warriors at Team USA – SFWar 69-68 … SFW is slightly better than last season, Team USA slightly worse, although seemed depleted. SFW will be stronger when Joe Kim comes back.
sf-dl : Braddaz at Cleatonkees – Bradda 63-55 … Cleatonkees only 5 guys. Both teams missing star point guards.
sf-nc : Bayi Rockets at CC – CC 66-54 … CC was making shots. Do they normally do that?
sf-dl : Team USA at Prodigies – Prodig 94-52 … Team USA on 2nd of dh, plus Quentin Wu went Westbrook mode for 2 quarters. Guards of Prodig too much.
o/sf-ta : Revolutionaries at Splash City – Splash 66-61 … Didn’t know Revolu had Joe Scott. Splash beating them with Scott is impressive.
o/sf-ta : Savs at GoGetIt – Savs 68-67 … Probably the game of the season and I missed it. Ant Navarrette exploded against a tight-knit veteran GoGetIt team.
o-nc/dl : Warriors at Benchwarmers – Warr 54-48 … Benchwarmers were reportedly depleted. Pete Chong having 9 assists at NC level means Warriors played good team ball.
o-nc/dl : WWWD at Franchize – Franch 56-39 … No surprise here. Franchize is legit-DL. One of those timeframe matchups I talked about last week.
o-nc/dl : Kryptonite at Frisco Hawks – Frisco 80-54 … This was going to be a forfeit by Rich’s Rayguns, but Frisco filled in last minute. Gabe Ross is MJ in NC level!
oak-dl : 51OFA at Dragon – 51OFA 57-42 … Not necessarily surprised 51OFA won this, am surprised by the 15-point spread.
o-dl/ta : Sqad Up at Marvel Unit – Marvel 49-41 … I believe Marvel’s best player, Arj Santos, was out. As such, +8 win in a TA vs DL matchup makes sense.
oak-dl : Heem Team at Mirror Force – Mirror 73-50 … This result surprises me. Will need to hear from my OAK staff.
oak-nc : Stephen’s Curry at Last Minute – Steph 45-30 … The +15 difference surprises me. Again, need to hear from my OAK staff.
o-nc/dl : Dreaming at JS23 – Dreami 52-40 … This one also surprises me. Need to hear from my OAK staff.
oak-dl : Basic Addition at Undrafted – Basic 58-55 … Glad to see this one was a close one. Assuming both rosters stay the same for playoffs, could be a nice playoff preview for DL top division (below TA).
oak-dl : Face Jam at Running Rebels – Runnin 54-45 … No real information to report on this one.
sj-dl : Gunners at Basketballs Of Fury – BBOF 62-49 … BBOF has won each of their 3 games by double-digits.
sj-ta : SJ Hibachi at Bay Kingz – SJHib 75-70 … Hibachi seizes No. 1 ranking. Two words: Aaron Buckner.
sj-ta : Bad News at Dem Boyz – BadN 50-47 … Bad News gets revenge for last season’s playoff loss. So much parity at the top here in SJ-TA.
sj-ta : 408 Da Go Gettas at TSA Santa Clara – 408Da 58-38 … This one surprises me. Didn’t expect TSASC to lose by that much. Perhaps 408 got their main guys back?
sj-ta : Hit Squad at Thunder – Thund 52-50 … 3rd straight one-possession loss by HitSquad. Again, a top-heavy SJ-TA division this season!
sj-dl : Regulators at Old Guns – OldGun 63-44 … Might portend a long season for Regulators, but we’ll see.
MON 3/16 (1:45AM) — The sheet below has been re-adjusted so that the rankings sheets SF, OAK, and SJ appear right after the latest slate of Sunday games. SJ rankings have been updated. I’d like to do SF and OAK rankings update next, but I’m debating whether or not to do more Instagram and Twitter posts first… (1:30AM) — All final scores have been entered. Some stat recaps have been posted on our Twitter, https://twitter.com/dreamleague and some Players Of The Games have been posted on our Instagram, http://instagram.com/dreamleague. More info to follow.
THU 3/12 (7:15PM) — With approval of all 4 teams involved, 3p AHSM got swapped with 7p BCRC, so that Heem vs Mirror will now occur at 3p and Basic vs Undrafted will now occur at 7p… (3:30PM) — SF tipoffs are now set, as well as OAK and SJ before that. Any questions, have your captain text me. Per the SF and OAK rankings sheets: Vikings, Check, Oakland Sonics all have byes. Doubleheader teams are in purple, as usual.
THU 3/12 (11:45AM) — Just talked to my OAK staff. Well, this Sun 3/15 is that week you could call “Armaggedon”. Take a look at the all the timeframes listed on the OAK ranking sheet. Can you see all the ones that are *either* 9a-2p *or* 4p-9p? That creates problems, big problems. So this Sun 3/15, we have a lot of matchups where there might be blowouts.
The only way to avoid this is (1) if you allow your team to go outside your timeframe and into that of the other one, or (2) if you have a repeat matchup. The problem with repeat matchups is, you’re likely to play against the same team in the playoffs anyways. So that’s the difficulty in OAK.
THU 3/12 (11:30AM) — OAK and SJ tipoffs are done! You can see that we are at a new gym in Oakland: Alameda High School. See directions below. In SF, still waiting on MDLS confirmation. If we don’t have MDLS for some reason, then I’ll have to figure out if there’s more time available at TIYM.
THU 3/12 (10:45AM) — Still finalizing a few things such as scorekeeping staff. Schedule in draft form below might get tweaked a bit, but I don’t expect any major shifts with the matchups and general timeframes of tipoffs… (4:30AM) — Draft posted. Still need to check with AHSM director for clarification of availability at that gym… (3:30AM) — Finally got approval for TIYM which enabled me to finish the matchups for SF and OAK. So now we have O-TA teams Savs and Revolutionaries headed to TIYM for those aforementioned vaunted matchups against SF-TA teams GoGetIt and Splash City. There’s also LetsGoWarriors vs Bus Drivers which will occur at ISAH.
However, unfortunately with the numbers game (“it takes two to tango”), that also forced me to give someone a bye in OAK and I chose that team to be Check, which is already ahead of schedule in the 6-game regular season.
The remainder of the OAK matchups are all based on timeframe. We have a lot of potential blowouts, I must admit, but for some reason, the timeframes in OAK are just polar opposites. So it is what it is. Things will be more corrected during playoff bracketing.
TUE 3/10 (7:00PM) — Correction: SF stats from Sun 2/22 were stolen (I think). Sun 3/1 and 3/8 are safe! (6:45PM) — Stats thru Sun 2/22 are done. However, someone stole the binder that housed all the Sun
2/28 2/22 SF stats, so we won’t have any stats from that week. So right now we have Sun 3/1 and Sun 3/8 outstanding, which is fine because most of the rosters have been punched in by now and I’ll be looking at various data entry options now that I’ve done the heavy lifting.
We do have a couple guys entering stats for us in lieu of their roster fee. If you’re interested, get my phone number from your captain and text me.
I will post instructions on how to find your stats, but for now just goto dreamleague.org and click around. It’s not hard to figure out!
TUE 3/10 (2:45PM) — FYI, I’ve hit an impasse with the schedule for this Sun 3/15 in SF and OAK. Tryna see if we can have a Savs vs GoGetIt matchup (or similar) on Treasure Island, as I mentioned before, but until I get confirmation that the gym can even be opened, or if one or the other team isn’t able to travel to SF, OAK, or TI, then I can’t move forward with finishing up the matchups. As you can see on the SF and OAK sheets, many matchups remain unresolved.
TUE 3/10 (12:45PM) — I did SJ rankings and started the schedule there; see draft version below in the spreadsheet (gym = CCCM again). Looks pretty straightforward there. Thankfully, most of the teams have highly flexible timeframes esp right now we’re stuck in certain time constraints at CCCM.
We got incredible parity going on in SJ. Any one of at least 8 teams can be crowned champion of Dream League San Jose. From what I’ve seen in SF, which is top-heavy, I think the eventual Bay Area champion — which will get at 50% discount at our next tournament — will either come out of SF or SJ. Sorry to say, OAK is “okay” and my eye test tells me they’d have trouble against SF and SJ teams. I don’t think we’ve gotten all the best teams back playing in OAK yet. Hopefully they will once word of the Bay Area Championship gets around. Remember, the Bay Area champion of all three “The Association” divisions will occur after our respective double-elim playoffs in each city (probably sometime in May).
TUE 3/10 (12:30PM) — Rankings for OAK are done, now that I have the scores in hand. Here’s the problem: I think there is a cliff after Savs, LetsGoWarriors, Revolutionaries, and Marvel Unit. So with 2+ regular season games to go, not quite sure how to match those top teams up. I’m gonna try to do an SF vs OAK deal at Treasure Island, which is somewhat a nice, neutral, geographically equidistant venue, but it has to be available first, plus the captains have to agree to it. So I’m waiting on the former and got a good feeling about the latter.
Next up: SJ +/- update and then re-rank.
TUE 3/10 (1:30AM) — FYI, we will be at Alameda HS plus BCRC for OAK this Sun 3/15. In SJ we will again be at CCCM and in SF we’ll be at ISAH and MDLS again, for 3/15. More detailed info in a few days… (1:15AM) — Just re-ranked SF. Next up: waiting for the final scores from my OAK and SJ staff, both of whom kind of fell short of my expectations of having scores texted to me as soon as they were done — can’t re-rank OAK and SJ without each and every final score.
Also took a stab at SF matchups for 3/15, but then ran into a few impasses, so I’ve asked captains involved for some available times, so that I can finish those matchup arrangements. I’ll spend the rest of the day punching in as many stats as I can. More info coming.
THU 3/5 (9:45PM) — SF finally has a draft. I’m gonna let it “marinate” for a little bit. Hope to finalize by midnight tonight. Again, ISAH starts early morning, MDLS midday. Meanwhile, IJRC and CCCM have “marinated” all day. Time to set those tipoffs in stone and they are, below. Scroll down or hit the jump link…
THU 3/5 (6:15PM) — Still waiting on a couple SF teams to tell me if they can go out of their timeframe. So until I hear back, the matchups are done on the SF sheet. Again, the OAK and SJ draft schedules are up and I don’t see them changing much, if at all — just a matter of someone hitting me up with an issue while SF gets ironed out.
THU 3/5 (5:00PM) — OAK and SJ matchups are in “draft mode” below. I don’t see it changing much. IJRC will open early morning and CCCM will open late morning. Next to-do: SF draft. Scroll down or hit the jump links…
THU 3/5 (4:00PM) — Just finished the OAK rankings. Also I forgot to say: BCRC is closed this Sun 3/8, therefore we are back at our and Damian Lillard‘s old stomping grounds: IJRC!!! Btw, IJRC will be too expensive to use on a regular basis. Did you know? Lillard was one of the kids that used to come by our league on Sundays and watch, not being able to play in our adult — and perhaps it was Asian-only back then — league. Truth, I confirmed that FACT with Dame himself when I covered Team USA scrimmages this past summer in Las Vegas.
THU 3/5 (3:45PM) — OAK rankings updated, so all rankings updated plus I added the special requests (links to do so are in the right-hand panel of this website). Check out Stache Bros, Lob City, and RNS in the SF. They’ve hit their 6th regular season game ALREADY and going on their 7th this Sun 3/8. That’s our SF Earlybird program in full effect — good for them!
THU 3/5 (2:30PM) — Sorry for the long delay in posts. Spent all day yesterday dealing with gyms, esp literally driving to the South Bay where things are finally taking stronger hold. The day before that was spent punching in and CORRECTING stats that my staff had entered erroneously, on dreamleague.org — I won’t go into detail right now, but feel free to click around and explore on your own there until further notice.
Right now, I’ve ranked SF and SJ, then started the SJ schedule already. It’s looking like this, with the first tipoff most likely in the late morning. More details about the gym situation in SJ by text message to your captains tomorrow, but the following is per the new ranking and in chronological order (as you can tell by the tipoff timeframes to the right, e.g., Regulators vs BBOF obviously are probably at the latest tipoff at Camden, 4p):
408 Da Go Gettas at Hit Squad 9a-2p any
Bad News at Bay Kingz 11a-4p any
Gunners at Old Guns 9a-3p 12p-9p
TSA Santa Clara at Dem Boyz 1p-9p 2p-9p
SJ Hibachi at Outlawz 10a-3p 3p-4p
Regulators at Basketballs Of Fury 4p-9p (4p)
Btw, gotta say, looks like a helluva field! I can safely say AT LEAST 8 teams all deserving of “The Association” top-billing. Eat your heart out, NBA Western Conference Playoffs! And so my early prediction for the SJ playoffs is this: 8 teams in the so-called SJ-TA and 4 teams in the lower SJ-DL level, if you will. The exciting thing about the TA is the Bay Area Championship (last paragraph on that page).
Next up: rank OAK teams. Hopefully my OAK staff can assist on some of those rankings. SF is already ranked, so I can do a draft of the schedule — we’re back at MDLS for a stint! — after I re-rank the OAK teams.
MON 3/2 (10:00AM) — I am currently updating the 3/1 schedule from yesterday with all of the final scores in the Comments column. Sorry I could not do that yesterday during the day, as I had to drive to SJ to make sure our launch there at BCCM went smoothly (it actually it didn’t, but then it did, and that’s okay), plus I had to cover the Warriors’ 26-point come-from-behind victory at Boston, then go back to SF to scorekeep. Other urgent to-do’s are various PayPal refunds — Dream League scorekeepers all play for free — and stats, Twitter “stat recaps”, Instagram, and such. More on that later and thanks for your ongoing patience regarding that.
FRI 2/27 (8:00PM) — I’ve hit Refresh on 3 separate browsers below and the tipoffs don’t seem to be up for ISAH and TIYM. The gyms will open at 10am and 1pm, respectively. Let’s hope Google Sheets updates itself shortly so that you can see the times. Btw, the order of the games has not changed since I first posted it in the early morning today… (7:45PM) — TIYM gym confirmed! Right when I finished the contingency plan, of course LOL. Tipoffs have been posted for all locations. Here are the links to jump down, or just scroll past the previous explanations…
(7:15PM) — Nice Warriors win and the TIYM said he would let me know before “end-of-day”, but I still haven’t heard from him, so I’m hitting him up left and right trying to find out the situation. I will now begin a contingency plan which involves forcing a bye on the 6 teams mentioned in the previous post.. (2:45PM) — Due to scheduling snafu, 3p and 4p BCRC games have been swapped. Unfortunately, that ends up with JS23 playing their doubleheader with a 3-hour gap in between. Sorry about that, fellas! I owe you one… (2:30PM) — TIYM gym director just told me he’s 80% sure he can get staffing for the games there. He’ll know by “end of day”. I’ll post an update at 7:30PM tonight. If I haven’t heard from him by then, then I will build the aforementioned contingency plan. However, I do think we have a good shot at getting it, since I offered his staff a “tip” for the trouble… (1:00PM) — I’m just eyeballing it right now, but if there is no TIYM gym, then these six teams I would probably give a bye to: Vikings, RNS, Stache, SF Homenet, We Goofy, and Sole Legit. I think I can reshuffle the deck and add a 9am game at ISAH if I gave these six teams a bye for this Sun 3/1. Still waiting for the gym director though… (12:15PM) — Still no word from TIYM so I might need to start building a contingency plan for SF. If TIYM becomes unavailable then I will probably force a bye upon the 8 or so teams in SF that have played the most games so far… (9:00AM) — SJ tipoffs set! In SF, TYIM gym director is looking for staff to cover the games… (4:30AM) — The tipoffs in OAK are done, thanks to the teams that made themselves available to go outside of their timeframes, as denoted by the “ok” notations in the parentheses in the “V” and “H” columns. The tipoffs in SF and SJ are nearly set, but not 100%, therefore they remain blank for now.
The problem in SF is that MDLS chimed in yesterday to say they are actually not available this Sun 3/1, and so now I’m waiting on TYIM — nice venue, but a ways to get to, but usually available — to confirm as a location. In doing so, I had to rematch some of the SF games to avoid most teams that were victimized by the late late opening of TYIM last week from going back there two straight weeks (e.g., Aubergine is now vs SFFAA and moved to TYIM).
The one team I couldn’t avoid having to go back is the SF Homenetmen. I couldn’t avoid the matchup vs GoGetIt and all other SF matchups involved a TYIM team from last week. So right now, SF is entirely dependent on TYIM confirmation. If I can’t get TYIM, then I have to scramble for another gym or decide which 8 teams are not going to play this Sun 3/1. Hope it doesn’t come down to that!
For BCCM (aka Bascom), I miscalculated the number of teams we had, so when the Outlawz asked for a bye, I thought we needed another team to take a bye. This is not the case, as 11 teams going down to 10 for this Sun 3/1 means we have an even number of teams and enough to fill the slate. Team Bad News was willing to take the original bye request, but now I hope they can play. So I’m waiting for confirmation that we can proceed with the matchups as shown. We are opening the gym, regardless, at 130p. If Bad News can play, then we’re good as-is. If not, then I need to shift things up. Therefore, the SJ tipoffs are not quite set in stone yet.
In case you wanna read up on how we got to this point in the Sun 3/1 schedule, check out the “previous posts” section (second link below this paragraph)…
THU 2/26 (5:00PM) — Gotta go cover the Cavs game right now so thanks for everyone’s patience and especially those last teams hitting me back with the ability to go outside their timeframe and thus alleviate the difficulties of the schedules here and there. Back at it late tonight! LetsGoWarriors! (2:00PM) — Still waiting on a couple OAK teams to give me feedback about going outside their timeframe. Had to rematch a team or two in the process just to make them fit in their timeframes. So meantime, I’ll being on the SJ matchups while we wait for the final OAK info to come in. You can see how it’s shaping up below. SF will be tweaked a tad bit too… (1:45PM) — Hit a roadblock with OAK. Need to rematch some teams. Sucks but oh well… (1:30PM) — FYI, things in SF and OAK might shift around a little bit. For SJ, see previous post…
THU 2/26 (12:45PM) — Special thanks to Franchize for helping out and agreeing to take the 9am spot at BCRC. Still working through some other similar issues, though. Meanwhile, SJ is a go at Bascom (see address below — I’ve never been there so I don’t know the details of where to park, etc., so be sure to budget enough time). More details will emerge later today and early tomorrow, but I will be texting SJ captains as far as specific preferences for this Sun 3/1 there.
THU 2/26 (8:00AM) — First draft of the schedule, as well as the new rankings and matchups, are shown below. Waiting on a few staffing issues and, in OAK, some teams to confirm they can go one hour outside of timeframe.
SJ is back and we intend to have ARYC as a fall-back. Waiting on confirmation of that. We have 12 teams, 10 of which will start this Sun 3/1, assuming there are no gym hang-ups. Matchups for SJ shall be determined after gym is confirmed, hopefully within the next couple hours. Hang tight!
MON 2/23 (1:15PM) — All scores except those from TYIM have been added in the Comments column below. We will add the TYIM ones late tonight after I retrieve the scoresheets… FRI 2/20 (10:15AM) — Tipoffs have now been posted. (9:45AM) — Made a few tweaks. Tipoffs are almost ready to go. Still trying to hear back from Benchwarmers…
- Moved Team USA out of TYIM gym because they said they have guys driving up from Peninsula
- Moved CC vs Illuminati to TYIM — again, we will rotate the teams that have to go there
- Oakland Sonics agreed to play as late as 7pm — THANKS!
- SF Warriors agreed to play as late as 7pm — THANKS!
FRI (6:45AM) — Also need to check if either Heem or Sonics can go later than 5p… (6:15AM) — First draft of the schedule is up. Waiting on Benchwarmers to confirm that they can go at times not always just 9a or 10a. In any case, we’ll let it marinate a few hours, but here are the issues with gyms…
- ISAH — starts early morning
- TIYM — needed due to overflow at ISAH, we will rotate teams each week
- BCRC — starts early morning
- WKRC — no longer being utilized
FRI 2/20 (12:15AM) — First draft of SF schedule is now up with no tipoffs, but in chronological order. ISAH is obviously all day and TYIM gym will go from early afternoon to late afternoon. Now working on OAK… THU 2/19 (10:45PM) — OAK matchups are now done… (10:15PM) — SF matchups finally done. Now onto OAK… (3:15PM) — SF and OAK +/- on the Rankings have been updated. Now in the process of re-ranking all the teams. After that comes matchups. After that comes the tipoffs for this Sun 2/22.
WED 2/11 (2:00PM) — Here are a few announcements:
- There are no games this Sun 2/15 due to President’s Day Weekend. I’ll be in NYC covering the All-Star Game and Steph/Klay/Kerr for @LetsGoWarriors.
- All scoresheets have been posted to our @dreamleague Twitter page. On there, you will also find “stat recaps” from each game this past Sun 2/8 from SF. We are now working on posting the stat recaps for OAK. These are also posted on our Facebook page.
- All the final scores are now on the schedule sheet below. Next up is putting the results on the Rankings sheets (labeled SF and OAK) but since this is somewhat low priority until next week, I might put it off in favor of…
- At our stats site dreamleague.org we are punching in as many (a) teams, (b) rosters, (c) games, (d) results of games, and (e) boxscores of games as we can, as fast as we can. We’ll give you more details as it’s populated more.
- Doing the schedule for the next slate of games Sun 2/22 requires the Rankings sheets to be done, so that’s on the backburner for now.
THU 2/5 (10:15PM) — Made no changes to the draft, so the tipoffs have been posted. I have put all previous notes into the Previous Posts section…
THU 2/5 (8:00PM) — OAK draft for Sun 2/8 schedule is now up! No tipoffs yet, but both gyms start early morning, so you can get a sense of what time your game is. I’m going to go grab some dinner now and when I come back, I’ll finalize the tipoffs…
(6:00PM) — Matchups for OAK set. Now doing a draft of the schedule… (4:45PM) — With the help of Peter, got all the OAK teams ranked. Had to take a break to watch Steph take on various people in Foot Locker’s 3-Pt Contest at our very own Kezar Pavilion! Check it out! (2:30PM) — First draft of the SF schedule is done! Here are some of the anomalies I came across…
- Aubergine vs Illuminati: I started with different matchups, but because I could squeeze all 13 games into ISA and not have to use TI, I needed a matchup to play at 9am and this was the only one.
- Kuyabruddaz vs SF Warriors: Same issue. Needed a team for the morning and these were the only ones. This won’t be as big of an issue once we get TI fired up.
- CC vs Frisco: Same morning issue.
- Stache vs Flight Club: I think Flight Club is a strong team, but I had no choice but to matchup Stache due to the above morning issues.
- Cleatonkees vs Bus Drivers: The ranked-based matchup would’ve had Prodigies vs Bus Drivers but seems like we always have that matchup so I sacrificed my own team to play the tough Bus Drivers team. There’s a slight dropoff between the top DL teams and the others, but we’ll see. I have some new players so who knows.
- We Goofy at CoolGuys: On the other side of the spectrum, needed to find a matchup to play at 9pm vs CoolGuys. This was the only one I could find for this Sun 2/8. Might be a tough matchup for We Goofy.
You can see the draft on the schedule below for 2/8. No tipoffs are filled in yet as we let it marinate a little. Meanwhile, time to start ranking and scheduling OAK!
(11:30AM) — Actually next step is do matchups for SF. Then I’ll rank OAK… (11:00AM) — Forgot to list the SF tipoff timeframes. Damn! (10:45AM) — Initial ranking of SF is done! Man, this is a top-heavy league this season and very exciting — as it should be! Why? Because, like I said, the champion of The Association out of SF will duke it out with that of OAK and SJ, and the winner of that gets 50% off our next 6’3″ & Under Elite tourney (don’t worry, everyone’s under 6’3″ without shoes anyways).
Scroll down or click the jump link below, then click on the SF tab and see where your team is at! Remember, I know most of your teams pretty well already, aside from any tweaks you may have made, and a lot of it, I’m basing on actual results. Take for example All Lin. Tough team to put in either bracket last season — definitely a tweener — but for sure they’re better than a lot of the SF-NC teams. Oh, and Lob City has, incredibly, already played 3 games (good for them, all free, and yes, six more to go as the model “earlybird signup” team we have), but they’ve lost all 3, yet it’s still early and they’re settled where they are. Lots of data to go on for them. So remember, it’s (1) Rank, (2) Play, (3) Get Re-Ranked Based On Result.
Next up: Rank Oakland! A little tougher for me since I don’t always get to see them, but I’ll get help from Peter & Co. and it sorta doesn’t matter anyways since you just get re-ranked every week anyways…
THU 2/5 (8:00AM) — Up and at ’em early today. No Warriors game today so Dream League has my full undivided attention. But talk about basketball, man, what a game last night! Check out my recaps from #Roaracle press row.
Meanwhile, looks like we have 18 teams in OAK which probably means 9 games at WKRC. And I’d like to announce that we will no longer be utilizing gym directors as referees. I’m sure a lot of you will be happy about that, but it’s just one of many things we are doing to reboot Dream League. You’ll see. Gonna be one of the best seasons ever on record!
In SF, we have more than 26 teams (2 more added last night!) which means we will need to utilize one more gym. Treasure Island has been so great to us, whereas I can’t say the same for MDLS, so we’ll see, but leaning towards TI for the overflow games this Sun 2/8. If any SF teams actually prefers TI, let me know!
Ok back to work…
WED 2/4 (4:00PM) — Here’s a list of teams so far for OAK and SF. More teams are registering as we speak, so this list is likely to grow, but gives us an idea of how things are shaping up. Please ensure that your tipoff timeframes are listed correctly:
Flint Tropics 4p-9p
Heem Team 12p-5p
Running Rebels 4p-9p
Bench Warmers 9a-10a
Mirror Force 4p-9p

TUE 2/3 (10:30AM) — I am currently in the process of a few things:
Putting up the schedule from the soft-launch games (in SF, they were FREE!)DONE!
- Putting up stats from the soft-launch games
- Gathering all the registrations and putting the list of teams on the SF, OAK sheets below
- Starting the schedule for this Sun 2/8
- Making sure everyone is paid up to date
Please note, SJ will need to be moved back to 2/22 start date because 2/15 is a holiday. Any other questions, just have your captain text me. Thanks for your ongoing patience. Check the previous posts from the soft-launches below.
Soft-launch on 1/11, 1/28, 1/25, and 2/1
FRI 1/23 (1:30AM) — Welcome to the 34th consecutive season of Dream League, the 2015 Winter-Spring season! The 3,4,5p games at ISAH are not yet locked in and we await response from some of the teams involved. Once we get the data needed from those teams, we can nail down the matchups for 3,4,5p. Please note, 12,1,2p at ISAH are solid.
Believe it or not, some teams actually started on 1/11, which I will add to the spreadsheet below later…
- 1/11 2:30PM ISAH sf-dl Stache Brothers 42, Lob City 38
