DONS BASKETBALL LEAGUE Week 3
GAME 1: RATTLERS 39 vs. NUGGETS 45
Nuggets Coach Byrd made a trade last week with the Bulls and acquired Tashawn Taylor, and it paid off. Tashawn helped secure their win and Johnny Whitted, their No. 1 draft pick, scored a game-high of 21 points. The Rattlers played very well without their star player KyShawn Teet but they just could not get the win without him.
GAME 2: WOLVES 41 vs. FORCE 40
These two teams battled to the end. Tariq Dean scored 16 points for the Wolves, and Raekwon Scott scored 16 points, 17 rebounds and 5 block shots for the Force. Despite Scott’s dominating performance, the Wolves was able to steal their first win.
GAME 3: HORNETS 49 vs. BANDITS 42
The Bandits finally settled their trade issues with their star player Elijahio Taylor; however he was not cleared to play until the second half of the game. But the Hornets had an answer for Taylor, recruiting DeVonte Barker who scored 28 points, 7 rebounds. DeVonte gave DBL fans a show with his awesome skills and a smashing dunk.
GAME 4: KNIGHTS 43 vs. BULLS 31
This Knights win was never questioned. They controlled the game the entire time. And Coach White is enjoying his early season success; his next game is predicted to be a sure win as they match up against the 0-3 Bandits.
GAME 5: DONS 53 vs. HORSEMEN 30
The DONS is looking very impressive beating their last two opponents by more than 20 points. Coach Don recruited Antonio Daye, one of last year's DBL premier players. Daye scored a game-high 22 points, leading the undefeated DONS to an easy win.
